The natural order is now so disordered and unnatural that sequential is inconsequential

THE HORAI (or Horae) were the Goddesses of the seasons and the natural portions of time.

They presided over the revolutions of the heavenly constellations by which the year was measured, while their three sisters spinned out the web of fate. The Horai also guarded the gates of Olympos and rallied the stars and constellations of heaven.

The Horai were particularly honoured by farmers who planted and tended their crops in time with the rising and setting of the stars–measures of the passing seasons.

The three were usually named

Eunomia (Good Order, Good Pasture)

Eirene (Peace, Spring)

Dike (Justice)

goddesses who individually represented the conditions required for farming prosperity.
