Symbol: The Archer

The myth of the Sagittarius constellation is my favourite of the zodiac constellations and in general. In Greek mythology there was an archer centaur Chiron. Horses were highly respected by the Greeks so centaurs were also respected in turn. Chiron was the most famous. He was a highly regarded archer, musician, and physician. He tutored great heroes such as Achilles, Jason, and Heracles. One day he was accidentally shot with an arrow by Heracles that was coated with Lernaean Hydra* poison. Being immortal, Chiron could not escape the agony and suffering of the poison. Chiron eventually went to Zeus and offered himself up as a suitable** replacement for Prometheus*** in Tartarus****. Zeus in turn gave him a place in the stars.

  • *Monstrous sea serpent that grows two heads back when one is cut off.
  • **Zeus had agreed [at Heracles' request] to release Prometheus if a suitable replacement was found.
  • ***Greek Titan (gen 2, after the primordial gods, before the Olympians) that created Man out of clay and gave humans the gift of fire by stealing it from Zeus and hiding it in a stalk of fennel. He also made humans stand upright like the gods (Yes, humans crawled around like they were straight up out of a horror movie). As punishment, Zeus chained Prometheus to a rock and sent an eagle (symbol of Zeus) to eat his liver everyday just to have it grow back for the next day. Prometheus is often seen as the Champion of Man, always striving to better mankind and protect them from the gods.
  • ****[Primordial god as well as] The deepest abyss. A dungeon of constant torture and torment.

Element: Fire

Fire is commonly associated with being the most dangerous and unpredictable of the elements. It represents life, passion, compulsion, zeal, creativity, determination, and motivation. Fire is also the symbol of the Greek Titan, Prometheus (see above). Fire can also mean the cleansing and rebirth that comes from fire.
