The story of Cancer the Crab is said to be connected to Heracles. Some storytellers say that during Heracles' fight with Lernaean Hydra, Hera, sent a crab from a swamp to snap at Heracles' toes because Hera had sworn to kill Heracles. Heracles was able to kill the crab by smashing its shell with his foot. As a reward for its efforts serving her, Hera placed the crab in the sky and it became Cancer. #greekmythology

Gustave Moreau - Nyx, Night Goddess (1880)
She’s the Greek goddess of the night. She mothered deities such as Hypnos ( Sleep) Thanatos ( Death) and Erebus (Darkness). She is depicted like a very beautiful and powerful woman, feared by Zeus himself. In Hesiod’s “Theogony”, she’s born of chaos and she is located in the Tartarus. She gave birth to Moros ( Destiny) Ker ( Destruction) the Oneiroi ( Dreams) Momus ( Blame) Oizys ( Pain) and the Morai ( Fates). She was rarely the focus of cults but it is believed she had an oracle on the necropolis at Megara and there was a statue of her in the temple of Artemis at Ephesus.

I am still trying to figure out what I want my account to be like, but until then, I will just keep posting when I can. thanks for your patience ♡
#Circe da @madeline.e.miller é um presente grego (e não de grego). Conta de forma cronológica a vida da ninfa Circe (pronúncia igual de Cersei de #GoT ), filha do titã Helios. Miller amarra os vários mitos em que Circe aparece, faz escolhas por versões desses mitos. Da uma riqueza incrível e aprofunda a vida da “bruxa” que Odisseu encontra na volta pra Ítaca. A prosa de Miller eh fluida, a história é cativante e pageturner demais. Não tem no Brasil ainda, mas da pra comprar a versão em inglês em e-book ou nas livrarias online. Miller ganhou o #OrangePrize no U.K. por seu romance debut, The Song of Achilles. Recomendo demais! #bookstagram#greekmythology#mariolabookclub
