IN GREEK MYTHOLOGY, "URANIA", THE "HEAVENLY ONE", REPRESENTS THE PRINCIPLE OF INSPIRED KNOWLEDGE. SHE IS ONE OF THE MUSES, THOSE WHO TASK IT IS TO SERVE AS SOURCES FOR DIVINE INSPIRATION FOR THEIR RESPECTIVE SPHERES OF KNOWLEDGE. URANIA PRESIDED OVER THE DOMAINS OF ASTROLOGY, MUSIC, AND NUMBERS. SHE IS ABLE TO FORETELL THE FUTURE BY THE ARRANGEMENT OF THE STARS.

URANIA IS USUALLY DEPICTED WITH A GLOBE IN HER LEFT HAND AND A PEG IN HER RIGHT HAND. SHE APPEARS DRESSED IN A CLOAK WHICH IS EMBROIDERED WITH THE STARS AND KEEPS HER EYES AND HER ATTENTION FOCUSED ON THE HEAVENS AS SHE STROLLS ALONG AFTER DARK. HER DARK COLORS SIGNIFY THE NIGHT SKY AND THE MYSTERIES OF THE UNIVERSE.

ALTHOUGH CREATIVE, IMAGINATIVE, AND PHILOSOPHICAL BY NATURE, URANIA CAN BE IS BLESSED BY A TOUCH OF THE WHIMSICAL AND THE MAGICAL AND IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE "HARMONY OF THE SPHERES. "SHE SYMBOLIZES THE TRUTH THAT IS GAINED THROUGH MEDITATION AND THE ABILITY TO BRING WISDOM AND INSIGHT INTO OUR CREATIVE WORKS..THE PRINCIPLE OF COSMIC KNOWLEDGE.

URANIA SANG OF NIGHT THAT CLOTHED THE INFANT WORLD
",IN STRAINS AS SOLEMN AS ITS DARK PROFOUND--HOW AT THE CALL OF JOVE THE MIST UNFURLED, AND O'ER THE SWELLING VAULT--THE GLOWING SKY.THE NEW-BORN STARS HUNG OUT THEIR LAMPS ON HIGH,"AND ROLLED THEIR MIGHTY ORBS TO MUSIC'S SWEETEST SOUND. "--JAMES GATES PERCIVAL--"
