Pegasus




Pegasus


Merry Meet :)))

Awhile back I did a piece on the unicorn for all of you. :)) It got a wonderful response from a lot of you who remembered loving unicorns when you were little. With that I'm guessing that a lot of you are quite familliar with the Pegasus as well. How much do you know about them?

The Pegasus is probably one of the best known creatures from Greek Mythology. The Pegasus is a horse of the divine that is usually white, and has wings. :))) Pegasus was born to Medusa when the father of the Pegasus Perseus chopped off Medusa's head. Perseus had seduced Medusa in the temple of Athena. Athena was furious that he would do this in her temple and she took out her anger on Medusa by turning Medusa into a Gorgon. A Gorgon is an immortal with snakes for hair that with one look can turn a person into stone. However, Medusa was not born a Gorgon so she was not immortal. Had she been immortal Pegasus had not been born when she died. This is just one of the many myths of his creation. You can find more variations of it online.


The Pegasus is known to help those that are creative. After Pegasus was born he flew to Mt Helicon and stamped his foot and created a spring called Hippocrene on Mt Helicon that people will go to for inspiration. We also have a constellation named for the Pegasus. The brightest star Andromeda is part of this constellation.

Since ancient times the Pegasus has been a symbol of knowledge, inspiration, imagination, power, and speed. As a totem animal Pegasus is one to help with inspiration and creativity. The Pegasus gives you wisdom and teaches humility and boundaries. Pegasus is also helpful with astral travel and keeping you safe during travel. Pegasus symbolizes the immortality of the soul. It is also believed that the Pegasus can convert evil to good.
