Horoscopes and Greek Mythology

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Horoscopes are designed to forecast a person’s future in correlation with their star sign.

While most simply find it entertaining, there are others who religiously track their monthly (sometimes even daily) horoscopes.

Interestingly, many astrological concepts have roots in Greek Mythology as Ancient Greeks were fascinated by stars and constellations.

To tie in with our Percy Jackson theme this month, here is which Ancient Greek god or goddess aligns with your star sign…

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Ares

Aries are strong and eager people and as a result, Ares (the God of War), rules this sign.

You likely share many of the same traits as this fierce god and are motivated by power, ambition, and courage.

However, take care throughout June to be mindful of those around you.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Hestia

Taurus is aligned with the Greek goddess Hestia.

Individuals born under this sign are practical and crave peace, stability, and comfort.

Hestia is the Goddess of the Hearth and known for providing warmth and protection – perfectly matching this star sign.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Athena

Gemini’s align with Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom and Military Victory.

This star sign has strong roots in Greek Mythology which results in Gemini’s having connections to the mythological twins Castor and Pollux as well.

Gemini’s are characterised as being adaptable, communicative, and resourceful, much like Athena.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Artemis

The Greek goddess Artemis (known as the Moon Goddess) aligns with Cancer, who is empathetic and nurturing with powers of healing and immortality.

Cancer’s are known for their empathy and, according to mythology, carry the protective powers of Artemis within themselves.

Leo (July 23 – August 22): Zeus

One of Greek Mythology’s most notable figures is Zeus, leader of the gods.

This powerful figure aligns with Leo and reluctantly, individuals born under this star sign may struggle to balance their ambitions and impulses.

Much like Zeus, people born with this sign are motivated by success, energy, and power.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Demeter

The goddess Demeter is the ideal embodiment of the Virgo who are known for their sensitivity, empathy, and ability to nurture.

Demeter is the Goddess of the Earth and the protector of the harvest, and aligns with Virgo’s as a result.

Libra (September 23 – October 22): Aphrodite

Libra’s are linked with the Goddess of Love, Aphrodite.

Therefore, individuals born beneath this star sign are charismatic, passionate, and skilled at communication – many of the traits associated with Aphrodite herself.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Hades

At first glance, seeing that Hades (God of the Underworld) aligning with your star sign might be off-putting.

However, this mythological figure represents the mysterious powers demonstrated in Scorpios.

The sign is often associated with secrecy, boldness, and passion, similar to Hades’ antics.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Dionysus

Dionysus is the perfect deity to represent the fun-loving Sagittarius as the God of Wine.

People with this zodiac sign are passionate, flexible, excitable, and love to entertain, and may feel a spiritual connection to the wild and spontaneous god.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Apollo

Capricorns are aligned with the Greek god Apollo, ruler of the sun and master of supernatural healing.

This zodiac sign is greatly influenced by a desire for safety and security.

Much like Apollo, Capricorns are ambitious, intelligent, and practical.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Prometheus

People born beneath Aquarius are cosmically linked to Prometheus, the God of Creation and Forethought.

As a result, this alignment allow people born under this sign to be skilled in communication and teamwork.

Aquarius is also associated with Ganymede, the mythological son of King Tros.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Ishtar

Ishtar is a complex figure in Greek mythology that aligns with Pisces by representing fertility, emotion, and passion.

People born with this zodiac sign are heavily influenced by their moods and inner desires.

Be careful in June – these tendencies might cause you trouble.
