What's your MYTH ??? II by GOKOYOKO What's your MYTH ??? II by GOKOYOKO
I took mythical creatures and put them in place of the horoscope signs with the best match.. some of them didn't have to change much such as the centaur which we always see as sagittarius(,

these seemed like the best fits;

Aquarius: Tsurube-otoshi (Japanese) - Monster which drops or lowers a bucket from the top of a tree to catch people
Pisces: Mermaid
Aries: Criosphinx (Ancient Egypt) - Ram-headed sphinx
Taurus: Minotaur (Greek mythology) - Human-bull hybrid
Gemini: Orthrus (Greek) - Two-headed dog
Cancer: Heikegani (Japanese) - Crabs with human-faced shells, the spirits of the warriors killed in the Battle of Dan-no-ura
Leo: Pixiu (Chinese) - Winged lion
Virgo: Medusa (Greek)
Libra: Harpy (Greek) - Death spirit with the form of a bird with a human head
Scorpio: Aqrabuamelu (Akkadian) - Human-scorpion hybrid
Sagittarius: Centaur (Greek) - Human-horse hybrid
Capricorn: Satyr (Greek) - Human-goat hybrid and fertility spirit

I don’t get it horoscopes already have mythical animals and people as there symbols. Some may not look very extraordinary but they are strongly connected with myths. Well except for Cancer which is only loosely connected to a myth.
It’s not really a bad idea but knowing some of the myths behind the symbols makes it seem odd. Like this is stuck between being your own original symbols and the typical zodiac symbols.

yes that's true. You are very right, I did look at those when I was researching and thought of it, but I thought putting different mythological creatures in place of the ones that we are used to with ones that still recall the other sign shapes would be more interesting otherwise just changing their names to the actual mythical names and drawing the same shapes would just be another usual horoscope list - and I still wanted to do something like this. Though I didn't change some of them because there wasn't any other that could replace them.. It's just a different concept in showing different mythological creatures in a more entertaining way I guess.)
