"What Is Your Zodiac Sign?"

Recently the Arya Bedding Collection has launched a beautiful collection of Astrology Duvet Cover Sets. We all know that duvet covers are meant to protect our bedding but what exactly do we know about our Horoscope Signs?

We are all born with a Zodiac Sign based on our date of birth. Each one is believed to represent 12 basic personality types. Although there is said to be a 13th sign in the Zodiac named Ophiuchus, I will base this lens according to the original 12 Signs, which are: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra ,Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn , Aquarius and Pisces.

He was a ferocious lion who destroyed anyone who would attempt to kill him, that is until Hercules came along and put the beast in his place. Since Hercules could not kill Nemean with any weapons, he wrestled with the lion and managed to strangle it to death with his bare hands. Hercules then skinned the beast with its own sharp claws and wore the skin as a cloak, for some extra protection.

Greek Myth Behind Virgo: There was a time when the gods lived together in complete harmony with the humans. This was called, "The Golden Age". Unfortunately, during the Bronze Age, many gods began feeling superior towards the humans and everything just went downhill from there. Prometheus was a Titan who sided with the humans. He had stolen the Olympus fire from Zeus and handed it over to them. Zeus became furious and left Prometheus chained at the top of Caucasus Mountain.

Zeus then continued with his fury and unleashed Pandora's box filled of evil demons, which we know of today as negative thoughts and emotions. The gods could not take all the negativity and quickly made their way back home to Olympus, all except for one immortal who could not bare to leave the humans. Ironically enough, her name was Astrea and she was the daughter of Zeus. Astrea loved the planet Earth and its people. Eventually she left Earth and made her way back home because of the "Evil Spirits". She was the last immortal to leave Earth.
