Asteria is the Titan goddess of prophetic dreams and astrology. She was the daughter of Coeus and Phoebe, making her a sister of Leto, the mother of Apollo and Artemis by Zeus. Asteria's own husband was her cousin Perses, the son of Crius and Eurybia. Their only child was a daughter; Hecate, the goddess of witchcraft.
In some accounts, after the Titanomachy and Perses' imprisonment, Zeus attempted to seduce Asteria but she fled into the sea, where she turned herself into a quail and, later, the isle of Delos, where her sister gave birth.
