Origins in Mythology
The constellation of Pisces appears as a fish swimming in the waters that pour from Aquarius. In Babylonian times, this star formation was associated with the gods Oannes and Dagon. These were water deities in the form of fish. Also in this constellation is the Leash, upon which were tied the two fish goddesses, Anunitum and Simmah.
In Greek mythology, Pisces is associated with the great beast Typhon. This fearsome creature belonged to the earlier age of the Titans, and was a terrifying force even for the greatest of the gods.
At one time Typhon attacked Mount Olympus, the abode of the gods. To escape from his wrath, each deity took the form of an animal. Zeus himself, shifted into the likeness of a ram. Aphrodite, and her son Eros, escaped the beast by transforming into a pair of fish and swam away into the Euphrates river. The goddess Minerva placed the image of the fishes in the heavens so that the event would not be forgotten.
