Hebe was the first cup-bearer for the gods.
She is also known as Iris, and the Waite deck features the Iris flower in the Temperance card.
I think I read that she was sometimes represented as a winged woman, although I can't find the reference now.
Hebe was replace by Ganymede as the cup-bearer by zeus, and became the constellation of Aquarius.
The Greeks chiseled Fortune as a woman, bald save her forelocks - an opportunity to be seized as she comes at you, or missed once she’s passed you by. As Kairos, her name was invoked in both archery and weaving to describe the flawless moment, when art and practice effortlessly combine - letting loose the arrow that meets its target, or patiently and methodically working the loom, maneuvering One’s shuttle to weave the fabric of creation.
Her connection to Jupiter may reflect the relation to Saturn. Yet, whereas Kronos merely ensures that Time waits for no one, Kairos offers the capacity for brilliance, to shine in those moments where we recognize when to act and what to do.... Also- Keiros asks us to contemplate the Hand setting Fortune’s wheel (=666) into motion.
This could be a fun thread, Beanu. I just noticed it. But it's misnamed: the way you started it out, it is about Greek gods and goddesses, not Greek astrology. I'm not very up on astrology, or I would have checked it out before now; I know more about mythology.
To narrow the discussion a bit, it seems to me that only imagery available in Western Europe during the 15th-late 17th centuries, when the tarot was being developed, should be considered. Your Hebe, while impressive, is by Canova, late 18th-early 19th century. It could have been inspired by the card. What did she look like a little earlier? Also, we can't in general use Greek pottery or statues, because they weren't known until the 18th century.
I have lots of Greco-Roman imagery at hand that was, or probably was, available in 15th-17th century Italy and France, relating to various tarot cards. How do I put it up for people to look at?
Finally, what is your source for her being the original for Aquarius? All I find is Ganymede in that role. It makes sense--she had to go somewhere after she lost her job. I just can't find a source.
