Haesos: The Awaken-er – the Goddess of the Dawn

Haesos: The Awaken-er – the Goddess of the Dawn. The daughter of heaven. She has many names, Hausos (Proto-Indo-European: *h₂éwsōs) is the reconstructed name for the Proto-Indo-European goddess of the dawn. Derivatives of her found throughout various Indo-European mythologies include the Greek goddess Eos, the Roman goddess Aurōra, the Vedic goddess Uṣás, the Lithuanian goddess Aušrinė (aušrà “dawn”) and possibly also the (West) Germanic goddess *Austrǭ (Old English Ēostre, Old High German *Ōstara. The Dawn Goddess is hypothesized to have been one of the most important deities to the Proto-Indo-Europeans, due to the consistency of her characterization as well as the relevance of Ushas in the Rig Veda. Her attributes have not only been mixed with those of solar goddesses in some later traditions but have subsequently expanded and influenced female deities in other mythologies. The Dawn Goddess is thought to have been envisioned as the daughter of Dyeus. This is partially reflected in Vedic mythology, where Ushas is the daughter of Dyaus Pita, though in some other Indo-European derivations this is not the case (Eos is a titan daughter of Hyperion and Theia, while Aušrinė is the daughter of Saulė and Mėnulis even Ushas is inversely sometimes considered the daughter of Surya) though nonetheless the epithet “daughter of heaven” remains in nearly all Indo-European mythologies. This reflects her status as a relevant goddess as well as a celestial deity.
