The god of Opportunity, Luck and Favorable Moments


Caerus in Greek mythology was the personification of opportunity, luck and favorable moments. He was shown with only one lock of hair. Caerus is due measure that achieves aim. This god brings about what is convenient, fit and comes in the night moment.

He was responsible for bringing things in the most convenient and right moment, even if it was at the very latest. He therefore represented opportunity, as well as good timing and season. He was always shown as standing on his tiptoes running, also having winged feet to fly. He also had a razor or scales that were balanced on a sharp edge, in order to showcase fleeting opportunities. If not grasped by the single lock of hair, the opportunity would be quickly lost.
