Io was in ancient greek mythology an Argive princess and priestess who became a lover of Zeus, the god of the sky and thunder. The name “Io” means “the wanderer” and is also seen known as a moon-goddess wandering in the starry heavens symbolized by Argus of the hundred eyes. Io first didn’t want to be Zeus’ Lover, until he took the form of clouds, surrounded her and made love to her. After that his jealous wife Hera turned Io into a white cow to punish her. Her transformation into a horned heifer represents the crescent and full moon.

In ancient cultures like in Egyptian mythology, Cows were sacred animals and connected with fertility and motherhood. In ancient and modern India, the white cow is part of the family and is honored in different ways as festivals dedicated to her for providing the family with milk and food. Although Hera’s act is a punishment by turning her into a white cow, we receive the subtle message of the myth that Io remains a sacred and spiritual being.
