"THEIA" WAS THE TITAN GODDESS OF SIGHT AND THE SHINING LIGHT OF THE CLEAR BLUE SKY. HER NAME SIMPLY MEANS "GODDESS. " SHE WAS ALSO, THE GODDESS WHO ENDOWED GOLD, SILVER AND GEMS WITH THEIR BRILLIANCE AND INTRINSIC VALUE. THEIA MARRIED HER BROTHER, HYPERION, THE TITAN GOD OF LIGHT, AND BORE HIM THREE BRIGHT CHILDREN: HELIOS, GOD OF THE SUN; EOS, GODDESS OF THE DAWN; AND SELENE, GODDESS THE MOON. TOGETHER, THEY WERE THE PERSONIFICATION OF THE LIGHTS IN THE SKY.

SHE SEEMS TO BE A GODDESS OF GLITTERING IN GENERAL AND ALSO HELD DOMINION OVER THE PRECIOUS METALS AND GEMS WHICH APPEARED TO BE SHINING WITH THEIR OWN LIGHT; SHE WAS ASSOCIATED WITH AN ORACLE AT PHTHIOTIS, WHICH COULD SHINE LIGHT ON THE FUTURE.

"MOTHER OF THE SUN, THEIA OF MANY NAMES, FOR YOUR SAKE MEN HONOR GOLD AS MORE POWERFUL THAN ANYTHING ELSE; AND THROUGH THE VALUE YOU BESTOW ON THEM, O QUEEN, SHIPS CONTENDING ON THE SEA AND YOKED TEAMS OF HORSES IN SWIFT-WHIRLING CONTESTS BECOME MARVELS".--PINDAR

WORSHIP OF THEIA MAY INCLUDE THE BURNING OF OILS AND INCENSE, PARTICULARLY AT DAWN OR DUSK, BUT WORSHIP OF THEIA IS NOT AS COMMON AS WORSHIP OF MANY OTHER HELLENISTIC GODS. SOME SECTS BELIEVE THAT THEIA CAN GRANT THE ABILITY TO SEE GHOSTS AND SPIRITS, AS WELL AS OTHER FORMS OF CLAIRVOYANCE. BECAUSE OF THIS MANY SECTS THAT WORSHIP THEIA ALSO ENCOURAGE EXPERIMENTATION WITH THE PARANORMAL.
