As well as giving her name to a particular species of seashell, Astraea is the Goddess of Innocence in Greek mythology. As the daughter of the Titan deities of dawn and dusk, Astraea took a name meaning “star maiden”, and lived alongside humankind during the Golden Age. When the Iron Age came, she decided to live in the stars, and there she remains as the constellation Virgo, winking down upon us. It is said that when the time comes, she will return to Earth and bring with her another Golden Age of peace and prosperity.
