Callisto was a priestess to Artemis who was raped by Zeus appearing to her as Artemis. Transformed into a bear by her goddess, she watched her human son grow into a hunter who aimed his spear at the bear and was himself turned into a bear by Artemis. Now, the mother and her son circle the Northern star at the tip of his tail as Ursa Major and Ursa Minor and it is through this woman’s loyalty to her son that we find North and our way home at night.
