Since the dawn of man, we have looked up at the night-sky and wondered about the stars. These points of light were once a complete mystery. Before we knew what we do today about the stars and planets, people used constellations to tell a story. The constellations were like a dot to dot puzzle and people connected the stars to form pictures of their gods.
They also created some wonderful, mythical stories to go along with these heavenly pictures. The myths of the constellations are tales about gods and monsters as well as villains and heroes. One may think that people don’t rely on these stories anymore, but if they look closely, they just might find them sneaking into everyday life. For example, the 12 zodiac signs heard of when people talk about horoscopes have their origins in the constellations.
As scientists and astronomers have learned more about the universe, we look at the stars in a much different way. Even so, the legends, gods, and myths associated with these tiny points of light that spread across the evening sky are still quite fascinating.
“I have taught you many ways to kill a mortal, Kratos; flesh that burns, bones that break. But to break a man’s spirit, is to truly destroy him.”
