About the Goddess Maia -

We derive the name of our most beautiful springtime month from

this ancient goddess who appeared in both Greek and Roman legend.

In Greece, she was "grandmother," "midwife," or "wise one" (variant

meanings of her name). Originally the goddess of the night sky and

later the oldest of the Pleiades,  The Romans identified the

Greek Maia with their fire-goddess of the same name; she, like Flora

and Feronia, ruled the forces of growth and warmth, including sexual

heat. Maia's festival was held on the first day of her month, a rite that

still survives in the Christian dedication of May to Mary, queen of

flowers.
