astraea, sprirt of truth and justiceWhat's in a name?

Astraea is the personification of the spirit of truth and justice. We nurture justice and truth and they underpin our raison d'etre.

If Astraea has a gender it is female, because without women we are nothing.

The name Astræa is derived from the ancient Greek for star and means Star Maiden.  She signifies equity, justice and truth.   Legend has it that when wickedness prevailed among humans, she was the last of the gods to withdraw and is found among the stars of Virgo. Astraea will one day return to Earth, when humanity regains its virtue.
