My new favorite goddess…

Eos, preceded by the Morning Star, is seen as the genetrix of all the stars and planets;

-her tears are considered to have created the morning dew, personified as Ersa or Herse.

-daughter of Hyperion, a bringer of light, the One Above, Who Travels High Above the Earth and of Theia, The Divine;

-brother of the Sun god Helios

-sister of Selene, the Moon goddess.

Her team of horses pull her chariot across the sky and are named in the Odyssey as Firebright and Daybright.

Mother of several notable offspring, including the Winds, Zephyrus, Boreas, and Notus, and the Morning Star, Eosphoros, all of whom she bore to the Titan Astraeus (“of the Stars”), and Memnon, her son by Tithonus.

She was rosy-fingered,

-saffron-robed

-golden-throned goddess,

-went up to Olympus to announce the light to the immortals,

-fell in love several times (some say it was Aphrodite who cursed her to be perpetually in love, because once had Eos lain with Aphrodite’s sweetheart Ares, god of wa)r.
