I Am Goddess, Hear Me Purrrr...

Yep, it's Pilfered Blog Fodder Time once again -- my chica Perpstu to the rescue as usual. I sure hope she comes and steals something of mine soon, so I don't feel like a total moocher.


YOU ARE HEBE

Animal: Bird
Color: Burgundy

Hebe is the daughter of Zeus and Hera, the rulers of the gods. Hebe married Hercules, and was wine bringer to her parents. She is the entertainer, the one who enjoys pleasing the guests and keeping the good cheer flowing. She represents an earthy and provocative nature.

In Euripides' play Heracleidae, Hebe granted Iolaus' wish to become young again in order to fight Eurystheus. Hebe had two children with her husband Heracles: Alexiares and Anicetus. In art, Hebe is usually depicted wearing a sleeveless dress. (Yet another good reason to do one's triceps exercises.)

Hebe is the goddess of pardon or forgiveness. She is also the goddess of youth and can make the old feel young again.

Cool. I'll take that.
