Luna, Roman Goddess of the Moon


The Romans recognized three aspects of her (also called the triad)–as the Moon-goddess, they called her Luna; as an underworld deity of magic Hekate; and as the huntress-goddess, Diana. Luna is a Roman Goddess of the moon. Together with Diana and Hekate, she formed a triad with Luna as the Goddess in Heaven, Diana as the Goddess on Earth, and Hekate as the Goddess in the Underworld. She is often depicted as a pale woman riding in a silver chariot, and was thus also a patroness of charioteers. Her temple on the Aventine Hill in Rome was destroyed by the Great Fire of Rome in the year 64 C.E. Called Luna by the Romans, Selene and Artemis by the Greeks, and many other names in other mythologies. Diana is described as guiding her silvery chariot over the sky at night. Diana: Roman Goddess of Light, Moon Goddess, Queen of Heaven, Lunar Virgin (note that to the Romans, “virgin” meant a woman who had never been married or pregnant, not a woman who had never had sex), Goddess of Wildwood, Divine Huntress, Protector of Animals, Lady of Beasts.
