Nyx is a primal goddess who comes from the earliest times in Greek mythology and is a pivotal member of the creation myth of the theology of the Orphis-Dionysic mysteries. In the beginning there was chaos, and out of this chaos the first God was born. According to the myth, she was the daughter of Progonus, the first God; she was born without a mother, and the moment Nyx was born, she ruled with her father until he made her the supreme ruler of heaven and earth. Later, she gave up her rulership to her son, Uranus.

With her brother Erebus, Nyx bore Aether (upper air) and Hemera (Day). She also bore Moros (Doom), Thanatos (Death), Hypnos (Sleep), Charon and Nemesis (Retribution) and the Fates (Moraie).

Nyx was sometimes seen as a winged Goddess. Her wings were dark and shadowy, and she was called "Swift Night". Later, she became the personification of the night and was its Goddess. She was revered for Her ocular powers, and Her realm was in a cave in the far was. She was portrayed as a young women dressed in a star covered gown. Her attribute is a reversed torch.

She is associated with the night; the color black; eggs and birth. Nyx is a good Goddess for you to call forth when you need to reclaim your awareness of your original essential nature.
