Asteria

                                                 In Greek mythology, Arteria  Asteria was the daughter of the Titan Coeus and Phoebe. She was the sister of Leto, and wife of Perses, by whom she became the mother of Hecate. Arteria Asteria was the titan goddess of the oracles and prophecies of night, including prophetic dreams, and the reading of the star (astrology). 

                         After the fall of the Titans, Arteria Asteria was pursued by the Zeus. She fled his advances, transformed herself into a quail and leaped into he sea. There Poseidon took up the chase, so she transformed herself into the island of Delos. Arteria Asteria sister, Leto had relations with Zeus, for which she was hounded by Hera all over the earth. She finally reached Delos and gave birth to Artemis, who thereupon helped her to deliver Apollo.
