"PHEOBE" WAS ONE OF THE ORIGINAL 12 TITANS WHO WERE THE WERE THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF URANUS (SKY) AND GAIA (MOTHER EARTH). ONE OF THE OLDER GODDESSES, SHE WAS A SISTER TO KRONOS. SHE WAS NOT CONSIDERED ONE OF THE MAJOR GODDESSES OF GREEK MYTHOLOGY, BUT SHE CONTINUES TO LIVE IN VARIOUS LITERARY TALES WRITTEN THROUGHOUT THE AGES. SHE WAS THE CONSORT OF COEUS, AND, MOST NOTABLY, SHE IS CREDITED WITH BEING THE MOTHER OF ASTERIA (GODDESS OF ORACLES) AND LETO (GODDESS OF MOTHERHOOD AND GUARDIAN OF THE GRAVES).

PHEOBE WAS THE GODDESS OF INTELLECT. HER NAME MEANS "SHINING ONE". "SHE WAS THE GODDESS OF THE EARTH-BASED PROPHECIES AND WAS THE CENTRAL DEITY WORSHIPPED AT DELPHI UNTIL HER GRANDSON, APOLLO, TOOK OVER. PHEOBE HAS OFTEN BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH ARTEMIS AS A GODDESS OF THE MOON, BUT, EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS ARTEMIS GRANDMOTHER, SHE NEVER ACTUALLY HAD ANY CONNECTIONS TO THE MOON.
