The Three Graces Attunement
Goddesses of grace, beauty, adornment, mirth,
festivity, dance and song
The Graces, or the Three Charities, were
goddesses of beauty, joy and kindness. They were
three beautiful sisters named
Thalea she who opens all of the flowers
Euphrosyne she who makes glad
Aglai shining one.
They inspired the ancient Greeks with good
manners and the delight that comes from art,
music, and dance. Wherever they went, they
inspired joy and happiness to all that saw them.
At any important occasion, the host would pour
the first cup of wine in honor of the Graces to
ensure that a good time would be had by all.
They were the daughters of Zeus and the sea
nymph Eurynome. Considered the embodiment of
grace and beauty, they brought joy to gods and
men and inspired artists. They were also the
attendants, or handmaidens, of Aphrodite and
Hera and protectors of vegetation.
