ASTRAEA

Greek Justice Goddess

Disappointed Goddess of Justice who became Virgo

Daughter of ZEUS and THEMIS, she took after her mother and became a Goddess of Justice. Early in the Golden Age she opened an office on planet Earth which allowed her to romp quite happily amongst the mortals with her other friends and relations.

But humanity simply couldn’t maintain their original good behavior and standards slipped. With evil on the increase, her immortal friends gradually left the planet to fend for itself.

One day ASTRAEA was the only deity left standing. So she slipped off to the Heavens with her sister MODESTY and become the constellation Virgo.
