Mythology has been used to come up with explanations as to way and our existence are they way they are. Creatures were created in mythology across the world to represent traits in humanity, both good and bad.
From fear and pride to gluttony and shame, these traits are all reflected in different mythological creatures.
Much of the zodiac is grounded in mythology, so it only makes sense that there would be a mythological creature for each star sign.
Here's what mythological creature you are according to your zodiac. Does it line up with what you think of yourself? Check a friend's too and share it to see what they think!
Cancer June 21- July 22
You are beautiful and majestic Pegasus. Your father is the all-powerful and stoic Jupiter, while your mother is the crazy and estranged Medusa. You're completely unaware of how magnificent you are, instead you serve to lift up and support the people in your life.
Leo July 23- August 22
Leo, what other creature could you be, if not a dragon! You're powerful, majestic, beautiful, but also a terrifying beast who will take down an entire city if you have to. You fly through life and through most of your interactions as people barely catch a glimpse of you.
Virgo August 23- September 22
As a Virgo, you are Anubis, the Egyptian gatekeeper of the afterlife. You watch humanity and are analytical by nature. The closest Greek equivalent to Anubis was Mercury or Hermes, which is actually the ruler of your sign.
Libra September 23- October 22
Some people think Medusa is a mean, scary old woman, but really the opposite is true. As a Libra you are just as kind, beautiful and trusting as young Medusa as when she went against her celibacy vow and fell in love. While you tend to avoid confrontation, your romantic tendencies get you into trouble. If you wallow long enough in self pity, you turn into the later-years Medusa with snakes for hair and turn people into stone.
Scorpio October 23- November 21
You are a Golem, Scorpio. You could be born poor and without access to information and you will find a way to become wealthy and brilliant. You seek out the truth, value friendship and will fight for love. You cannot stand hypocrites or injustice. The Golem was made out of stone and created to be a servant. Once they saw the truth, they rose up against those who tried to enslave them. As a Scorpio, you cannot be held down. Anyone who tries will meet your Golem-like wrath.
Sagittarius November 22- December 21
You are a Centaur, Sagittarius, but I am sure you could have already figured that out. You're equal parts wise and driven, as well as equally savage and analytical. Full of lust for life, love, and experiences you crave the closeness of other people. You see beauty in everyone, and want only to fill the world with more beautiful things.

Capricorn December 22- January 19
Depending on where you are mentally, you can be just about anything. Your mythological creature is the Chimera. Literally meaning "a little bit of everything" you have a head of a lion, a snake, a goat and you can also fly. Your personality can change in an instant which makes you wise, multi-dimensional and extremely empathetic.
Aquarius January 20- February 18
Aquarius, you are known for your intellect and you're so smart that some people believe you're a seer of things to come. You are a Banshee from Irish folklore and you are the sign of dark things to come. You can appear beautiful just like a banshee, but if anyone tries to pry into your emotional world, they better be prepared to deal with your wrath.
Pisces February 19- March 20
You may be gentle, sensitive and creative, but you're also totally in your own world. Your greatest passions are art and sex, so Pan is a natural fit. The goat-legged man spends his day surrounded by nymphs. Known for his sexual powers, his greatest conquest was the moon goddess Selene who he seduced in the forest after drawing her from the sky.
Aries March 21- April 19
Aries, you are the valkyrie. In ancient Norse mythology you the top warrior. You jump into the thick of battle to bring armor and weapons to the warrior and those who died you took up to Valhalla. You are the hero of every story and will fight to the end no matter what it costs you.
Taurus April 20- May 20
The most loyal of the zodiac, Taurus you are a gargoyle. While your trust is hard won, once you become a friend, you are that friend for life. You will do whatever it takes to protect and take care of your own. Those who hunted the gargoyle for protection had to fight hard, but if they succeeded they could count on you for anything.
Gemini May 21- June 20
As a Gemini, you are Cerberus. This 3-headed hound with a mane of snakes and serpent's tail guards the entrance to Hades. You are loyal and fierce but appreciate time alone. While you may love interesting people, and think you want to be close to them, you really are your own best friend. You may have one person in your life that you really love (hint: the devil), but at the end of the day, you're your own best company.
