Yes, Uranus is the first blank. Since he is solved, I'll provide a brief version of the God family tree that has been touched upon in prior posts. Uranus is father to Cronus, easy enough. Cronus ripped off Uranus' testicles, threw them in the ocean and thus was born, Aphrodite. The Gods aren't anything, if their not gruesome.

Uranus, Cronus, Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Aphrodite, Eros, Hedone.

Sorry, no dice. You do know your mythology though.

Thinking out loud.

1st is Uranus, father of the 2nd, Cronus. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th are the sons of the 2nd, Cronus. The 6th, however, is the daughter of the 1st, so shouldn't she come after Uranus?

Or does the relationship change along the way? Eros is the son of Aphrodite and Hedone is the child of Eros.

Well you could just name all the Greek Gods, but that wouldn't be fun. There is a method to this madness and so far, none of the answers for the last 2 blanks are correct.

Ok, I have no idea at this point, but one thing the puzzle does not say anything about is order, so anyone else looking may not want to get hung up on the order of things. Perhaps order does matter, but perhaps it doesn't.
