The Moirai or Fates Picture

The Moirai/Fates - The Goddesses of Fate

The Fates spun and cut the thread of human life. They were the daughters of Nyx and Erebos. They do not answere to the other Gods and not even Zeus can tell them what to do or control theirdecesions, the only god that can control their decisions is the Goddess Anance. They directed fate, and watched the fate assigned to every being by eternal laws might take its course without obstruction.

Left to right:
Clotho, the youngest of the fates and she spun the threads of human life and made major decisions like when a human was born.

Lachesis, the middle of the fates, she measured the thread woven by clotho. She was said to choose a person's destiny after a thread was measured.

Atropos, the eldest of the fates. She cut the thread of life.

Interesting enough they may also appear in the norse mythology as the Norns.
