Greek Astrological Goddess

Also known as OURANIA

Spaced-out Muse who's out of this world

URANIA is the inspirational spirit of Space, Astronomy and Astrology. One of the MUSES, she carries a globe and holds a peg in her right hand for reasons we are not at liberty to divulge.

With her eyes firmly fixed on the night sky, she’s an inspiration to astronomers and those seeking the answers to deep cosmic questions.

Her cloak is covered with stars and if you petition her nicely she might reveal the secrets of the universe. While you’re at it, ask her about the peg.
