Iris (Ἶρις); Iris is the Greek goddess of the rainbow. She is the gods’ link to humanity as she is also their messenger. She can travel with the speed of the wind from one end of the world to the other. Her father, Thaumas, was a marine god and her mother, Elektra, was a cloud nymph. She is usually described as a virgin goddess. Iris’ name contains a double meaning, being both connected with iris, “the rainbow”, and eiris, “messenger”.

The Evening Star is Zorya Vechernyaya (from Russian vecher, meaning “evening”), a goddess of dusk who is depicted as a fully armed and courageous warrior. She was associated with the planet Mercury. Some myths cast both Zorya as virgin goddesses who had the specific job of grooming their father’s white horses, but other accounts saythey married the moon god Myesyats and gave birth to the stars. Ancient Slavs would pray to Zorya Vechernyaya each evening as the sun set.
