Asteria is the goddess of the magic powers of night. She has dominion over various magical arts including astrology divination dreaming and necromancy. She is an oracular spirit and may be requested to send prophetic dreams. Like mother like daughter: Asteria may be Hecate mother.
When Zeus got Leto pregnant.Hera his wife cursed Leto so that she couldn’t give birth anywhere the sun had ever shone. Leto’s pregnancy stretched on interminably. Zeus’ wandering eye moved from Leto to her sister Asteria who attempted to evade Zeus by transforming into a quail and flying away. His interest piqued by what he considered a game of hide-and-seek Zeus transformed into a predatory eagle pursuing the little quail.
Asteria transformed into a stone and dropped into the sea where she quickly transformed again this time into Delos the small rocky island where Leto was finally able to give birth. (The sun hadn’t yet shone on Delos.)
Her dress has all the zodiac signs on them as well as the same flower that my Hecate drawing but then upside down. This is to symbolize their union as mother and daughter.
