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 Graeae and the myths and legends surrounding Graeae, Graeae relationship to and with other Greek Gods and Goddess and key events and stories which relate to ancient astrology and the changing seasons.
The Graeae were three sisters, of the Gorgons, daughters of Phorcys and Ceto, they were seen as so old that they only had one eye and one tooth between them that they passed back and forth to each other as required. They were Enyo (horror, devastator of cities), Pephredo or Pemphredo (alarm) and Deino or Dino (the dreaded anticipation of evil) they were thought of as being like witches. Only Enyo appears by name in any myth, see Enyo. All three play a small part in the myth of Perseus and Medusa, see SV. File, Heracles the birth and other myths.
