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
