Selene was the titan goddess and the divine personification of the Moon. She was a daughter of Hyperion, the titan of light, and the sister of Eos and Helios, correspondingly the titans of dawn and the Sun. Selene’s dearest lover was Endymion, who was granted eternal youth and immortality on the condition of spending his life asleep. Selene visited him every night and the couple had many children, the most notable of whom were the Menai, the goddesses of the lunar months. #myth

His brothers Prometheus and Epimetheus weighed the odds and betrayed the other Titans by forming an alliance with the Olympians.

In greek mythology, Asteria ( Ἀστερία, “of the stars, starry one”) was the Titan goddess of the oracles and prophecies of night, (including prophetic dreams, and necromancy), and falling stars.

She fled his advances, transforming herself into a quail and leaping into the sea where she became the island of Delos.

In some versions they are said to have been created by the blood of the titan Uranus while other versions praise them as daughter of the goddess Nyx, the goddess of the night. The sisters served as persecutors...
