The Greek myths were written to come up with explanations for why life and our existence are the way they are. The creatures of all mythology across the world have been written in such a way as to represent the traits, both good and bad, of humanity. Our fear and pride, our gluttony and shame, all of it is reflected in different mythological creatures.
Interestingly, so much of the zodiac is grounded in mythology, so it’s only logical that there be a mythological creature for each zodiac sign. Here’s what mythological creature you are according to your zodiac.
Believe it or not, fiery Aries’ spirit animal is the werewolf, whereas there’s no surprise if we said Scorpio is the main seductress: the dark, sultry and sexy image of the vampire. Find out where you stand in between fairies, mermaids, elves and other mythical creatures.
Aries: Werewolves- also known as Lycans legend has it that they were a race of people who could purposely turn into larger-than-normal wolves, but some stories differ saying that it was a curse that turned a human into a half-man/half-wolf monster without his consent during a full moon.
Taurus: Dryads- also know as wood nymphs dryads were extremely beautiful and were literally the spirits of the trees. Legend has it that if the tree they were from died so would they. Love of nature, and an extremely strong tie to their home/roots nothing screams Taurus more.
Gemini: Fairies-Small magical creatures often depicted with butterfly, or insect wings. Are known to be small in stature and mischievous in nature. They cannot lie but they have been known to be very persuasive with their words.
Cancer: Sirens- Not to be confused with mermaids the original sirens had wings, but they lived by the sea. In some legends they were beautiful women who sang sailors to the rocks and drowned them, in other stories the sang them to the rocks to devour the sailors themselves.
Leo: Nephilim-The offspring of humans and angels in some stories they are giants, who are taller, stronger and dumber than most humans. In other stories they are beautiful/handsome creatures with retractable wings of ether, known for their passionate and ruthless behavior. Strong , handsome/beautiful, vain, and addicted to luxury sounds pretty Leo to me.
Virgo: Elves-magical creatures that often live apart from society, but have been know to both help and hinder humans. They are ageless peaceful and very beautiful. They live by their values, and value logic above all else.
Libra: Sylphs- Also known as air elementals they are known as the protectors of beauty and the promoters of vanity. They are said to protect the looks of those they favor. They are also responsible for the formations of the clouds.
Scorpio: Vampires- these beings are said to be very hard to resist and emanate a powerful attractive aura. They can’t force anyone to do anything but they are very persuasive and it takes a strong person to say no. Dark, sultry, and sexy.
Sagittarius: Centaurs-Half-human/half-horse Centaurs are the physical representation of logic over animal nature. They are great teachers and philosophizers, but they are also compelled by a lusty physical animal nature.
Capricorn: Satyr-The half-man/half-goat known for its sexual nature. As Dionysian animals they believed that every physical pleasure was made for them and often enjoyed all of them in excess. As they got older however some believe Satyr grew more sober taking on the responsibility of preserving the wild.
Aquarius: Androids-part human part robot they are more attractive, more intelligent, and stronger than humans. However they are emotionally inept and lacking in areas of creativity. they are also known to get sick of the error of humans and revolt from time to time. Intelligent, un-emotional, and revolutionary.
Pisces: Mermaids- half-human/ half-fish and the subject of worldwide folklore. Mermaids belong to the sea and our seen as more spiritual than humans. they have hauntingly beautiful voices, but generally don’t have a need to kill humans. Beautiful, ethereal, and untouchable.
