Urania Day celebrates the power of girls and women in Science, Art and Spirit during Women’s History Month.
This year, Urania Day falls on March 16, in honor of pioneering astronomer Caroline Herschel and the Urania’s Mirror constellation cards.
Urania was the Muse of astronomy and celestial objects, one of the 9 Greek Muses. The 9 Muses were violet-haired goddesses gifted in the arts and sciences and a source of divine inspiration for mathematicians, poets and great thinkers throughout history.
Urania Day is a moment to honor women's genius and express the gifted muse within us all.
