Celestial Cycle

Saw a picture meme floating around suggesting that Celestia is not actually immortal in the "never dies" sense, she's just reborn in flame every time she dies, just like Philomena. Makes a lot of sense--the dying and returning god is a common feature of solar mythologies (see also Adonis, Amaterasu, Jesus, Aang).


  1. So, back in episode 1, Nightmare Moon might have straight up killed her? Works for me.

    1. Well, killed being relative. If this were the case than obviously Luna would be well aware of it, so it's more like "hit her as hard as she could knowing there was no incentive to hold back since she'll spring back anyways". I still think it seemed more like she banished her somewhere else though.
