Urania Goddess

In Greek Mythology Urania was one of the nine Muses, the eldest daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne. Urania was the goddess of astronomy which was the same then as astrology. She is also associated with Universal Love and the Holy Spirit.

“To each of the Mousai men assign her special aptitude for one of the branches of the liberal arts, such as poetry, song, pantomimic dancing, the round dance with music, the study of the stars, and the other liberal arts . . . For the name of each Mousa, they say, men have found a reason appropriate to her : . . . Ourania, because men who have been instructed by her she raises aloft to heaven, for it is a fact that imagination and the power of thought lift men’s souls to heavenly heights.” [Diodorus Siculus, Library of History 4. 7. 1 (trans. Oldfather) Greek historian C1st B.C. ]

“Corymbus of Helicon . . . formerly the Musae’s friend, to whom Uranie herself, knowing full well his Stygian destiny, had long foretold his death by the position of the stars.” [Statius, Thebaid 8. 548 ff (trans. Mozley) Roman epic C1st A.D.]

“While Urania shows involvement with astronomy, astrology, mathematics or any kind of theoretical, abstract or symbolic knowledge, it is also the ability to extrapolate principles and relevant data from a mass of facts”. [Mechanics of the Future – Asteroids, Martha Lang-Wescott, 1988]
