Maia is the Greek goddess of spring, from whom we derive the name of the month of May.
She was the eldest daughter of Atlas, the most beautiful of her seven sisters, all of whom we can see in the night skies in the "Pleiades" constellation.
She bore Zeus a son, Hermes, and raised another one of his children as her own when the ever-jealous Hera killed its mother.
She is sometimes referred to as the grandmother of magic, as Hermes is believed to have been the first to master the art. Incidentally, he is also credited with the invention of medicine, astrology, and letters, and was an escort of souls to the underworld - a similar role to Iris (contrasting his mother's role as bringer of life each spring).
