The mythology of Pisces begins with the descent onto Mt. Olympus of the great monster Typhon, threatening all of the gods and goddesses in colors of amethyst and aquamarine dash and elegance, who flee from their home. A giant made up of a human torso and head with red bloodstone eyes, his main head was composed of 100 snakeheads that matched his legs made of vipers, and his body was covered with wings made with the colors of the water: sapphire and rock crystal, the most beautiful part of this monster, his wings.
At that moment the goddess Aphrodite and her son Eros (in Roman mythology Venus and Cupido) were walking along the Euphrates River, when they saw the furious Typhon with red bloodstone eyes appeared. They were scared and unable to run, so they called upon Zeus for help.
Because there was no way for a single god to defeat this monster on his or her own, they resorted to morphing into two beautiful fishes of green jade and of course with purple tones as the amethyst (because let’s remember amethyst was the color of the dash of the gods and the goddess) to evade the beast and they jumped into the river made of a beautiful palette of colors like the blue aquamarine and the color of the terrible but beautiful wings of Typhon sapphire and rock crystal and escaped. Because the white color of the rock crystal is everywhere as the water.
In order not to lose each other, they tied themselves together with a rope made of rock crystal-like foam of the water as they tried to escape. Once in the water, they were met by two other fishes who helped them swim to safety. Aphrodite and Eros were able to be free of the beast and as repayment, Athena placed the fish among the stars and they became the constellation of Pisces.
Astrology said that Pisces is a water sign and the people born under this sign are compassionate, adaptable, devoted, and imaginative as the fishes that saved the goddess and her son at some moment in history.
History? Is not history that explains the way we are and why we are like we are. Maybe the people born under this special constellation, yes! your history is full of amethyst, aquamarine, bloodstone (heliotrope), jade, rock crystal, and sapphire, and as rich and extensive as the water could be or the rock crystal.
