The ancient Greek Gods and Goddess contain a wealth of stories and legends, wrapped in Myths which typically provide a story with a morale code designed to influence the reader into behaviour as fitting Greek culture of the era.
In this article, we look at Asterope and the myths and legends surrounding Asterope, Asterope relationship to and with other Greek Gods and Goddess and key events and stories which relate to ancient astrology and the changing seasons.
The possible father and mother of Asterope, appear to be many, but this is due in part to confusion amongst the ancient authors as to what she really represents. Those listed include, Nyx (night) and Erebus (darkness), Atlas, and even Zeus, as well as Phorcys and Ceto, and Hesperus. See SV. File, on Asterope.
