Nyx-Goddess of the Night

"The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep."


Nyx is the goddess of the night, one of the ancient Protogenoi (first-born elemental gods).  Her name, synonymous with Night, describes how her dark light falls from the stars and she dictates to both men and gods. Not even Zeus wanted to upset Night, as the stories go. She is one of the most powerful goddesses in mythology. She is the dark-robed Goddess, and the giver of sleep.

Ancients believed that before the universe was created there existed only a void of “chaos” that was black and silent. From this “chaos” Nyx emerged into existence. She is often depicted  as a great black winged spirit or riding in a chariot, trailing stars and bringing the night, accompanied by Her sons Hypnos and Thanatos and even a figure of exceptional power and beauty who was found in the shadows of the world who could only ever be seen in glimpses.

Her planet is the moon and her day time is Monday, Winter is her season. She is associated with the Night; the color black; eggs and birth. Nyx is of good help to call forth when you need to reclaim awareness of your original essential nature, for protection, cleansing and fertility.
