Asteria was the Titan-goddess of dreams and prophesies of the night in ancient Greek mythology. She was the daughter of Coeus and Phoebe, and sister to Leto. Her nocturnal prophecies are associated with astrology and necromancy. One myth has Asteria being pursued by Zeus, whereupon she changed herself into a quail and leapt from heaven into the sea where she metamorphosed into the island of Delos forevermore.
