Pegasus was an immortal flying horse. He was the son of the god of the sea, Poseidon, and the winged and snake-haired gorgon Medusa. A powerful figure in his own right, Pegasus joined forces with Greek gods and heroes to help them achieve nearly impossible feats.
Pegasus was born when the Greek hero Perseus cut off the head of the monster Medusa. From Medusa’s headless neck, Pegasus sprang, fully formed, along with his brother Chrysaor.
Pegasus meanings and symbols include:
The Eternal Spring of Imagination and Creativity
Because Pegasus was a land animal who could fly, he represents the ability for human beings to imagine a world that is more magical than that of everyday life. Thus, he is a powerful symbol for freedom and limitless imagination and creativity.
Pegasus is also associated with multiple elements:
Earth because he was a land animal
Air because he could fly
Water because he could create fountains and springs by stomping his hoof
Fire because he carried lightning bolts for Zeus
In Medieval times, Pegasus symbolized wisdom because he moved between the two spheres of Heaven and Earth. By the time of the Renaissance, artists who were inspired by Greek and Roman traditions were fond of painting winged horses.
According to the Greek myths, Pegasus was such a loyal companion to the gods that Zeus rewarded him by placing him the sky among the stars.
The Pegasus constellation is one of the oldest-known constellations in the night sky. The astronomer Ptolomey wrote about it in the 2nd century. However, it’s likely that people were watching the winged horse constellation in the sky far earlier than that.
