Ice Sign | Snow

Pegasus is the 2nd Ice or Vapor sign in the Zodiac. It’s also one of two exceptions to the Compound Elemental Cycle. Pegasus and Ophiuchus effectively traded their Elements of Wood and Ice. Therefore, Pegasus and Cetus are both Ice signs in late Winter of the Northern Hemisphere, on either side of Pisces. 

Pegasus resonates strongly with Ice and Vapor, being associated with clouds, cool winds, and snow. One might also consider them a Vapor sign, since Vapor and Ice share many common motifs, like clouds, mists, and even rain, to some extent. 

Pegasus signs are likewise cool, calculating, and reflective, with a tendency to assist and counsel others in various matters, especially personal ones. They have a natural ability to transcend their own perspective and intrusive emotions in order to see a higher perspective. They’re like monks, reaching for enlightenment on cold mountaintops.

Truth Sign | Transcendence

Pegasus, the 4th and final Truth sign in the Zodiac, represents spiritual transcendence. As seekers of Truth, Pegasus signs ultimately wish to live by Truth, and not merely think about it. Although they may tend to think abstractly and find themselves disconnected from reality at times, they take the Truth very personally, and take it upon themselves to live their Truth, once they’ve found it. 

They may become monastic, living on the fringes of society so as to see existence more clearly. Ultimately, they learn that enlightenment is not just a destination, but a continuous journey. Their minds are expansive, but so are their hearts. Through their introspective practices and contemplative nature, they tend to be excellent counsellors of others, and their higher perspective allows them to sympathize and synchronize with just about anyone. 

In the presence Pegasus, we are reminded to expand our minds and to live our Truths. Pegasus signs guide us along the path of self-discovery, counseling us to be our Truest selves.

Archetypal Story of Pegasus

Atlantis: Milo Thatch is a man possessed. He has poured himself into his archeological research on the lost city of Atlantis, and desperately needs a big break to secure funding and turn his dream of finding it into a reality. The only problem is that his prize is regarded by academia to be pure fantasy, and those with the resources to support his mission laugh him out of the room when he pitches it. Luckily, there is someone out there as adamant about making the discovery as he is. His extensive linguistic expertise lands Milo a spot on the expedition crew financed by eccentric millionaire Preston B. Whitmore, an old friend of Milo's grandfather who is now making good on a bet. For some reason the serendipity of this doesn’t arouse any suspicion, and the motley crew head off in a submarine to the location outlined in the Shepherd’s Journal, an artifact Milo has been seeking his whole life which holds the secrets to Atlantean culture.

They fight past a leviathan monster and use their various specialties to overcome obstacles between them and the lost city, and when they arrive they find it populated not just by descendents, but original survivors of the tsunami which sank the city. A magic barrier generated by a huge crystal at the heart of their capital protected them, and each citizen carries a small piece of that crystal, prolonging their lives by centuries. He meets princess Kida, who takes interest in him as posesser of the Shepard’s Journal and able translator, and takes him all over the sunken city in an attempt to reconnect with her past. She was just a girl when her mother sacrificed her life to the crystal to save the others, and in the long interval since the fall their way of life has decayed. There seems to be a connection between their vehicle technology and crystals, and together they rediscover how to operate them. But their time is cut short. In a twist that shocks only Milo, it turns out stealing the crystal was the true mission all along, not a philanthropic escapade of scientific discovery. 

Like her mother before her, Kida’s life force is bound to the crystal, and both she and it are taken prisoner by the expedition crew. Each member who Milo had befriended previously had revealed a hope or dream that would be facilitated by money, and now it turns out they are willing to destroy the Atlantean people to get it. As Kida’s father, the king, lay dying, he told the truth about how he had betrayed the gods by trying to weaponize the heart of Atlantis, and gave Milo his own crystal, blessing him to do what he must to set things right. A rabid idealist, Milo feels completely betrayed by this and guilt trips them endlessly to try to get them to do the right thing. They eventually give in, but it is ultimately the temptation of a bigger cut by cutting out the other members of the crew once their job is done which builds up enough resentment and brings the whole scheme crashing down. Bad guy gets greedy and turns on bad babe, who kills him and releases Kida and the crystal. In return for not destroying their culture, the crew gets to go free with a bunch of treasure instead of the crystal, and Milo gets to stay with Kida and work to restore Atlantis to its former glory. 

His journey allows him to find his place in reality instead of escaping into fantasy. He spent most of his life dreaming and theorizing instead of actually putting anything on the line, but being faced with losing the woman he had come to love he sprang into action and applied his studies. No longer able to hide in obscurity, he can fully embrace the quality of Wonder which had been hampered by those around him who didn’t value it and find out for himself how it can enrich pragmatic life if it isn’t dismissed outright. He experiences the vibe of Karma through the payback the King receives for his original sin which put the city under, and the delvers attempting to steal it’s waning livelihood. With Kida as a Cancer placed between those forces as protector and caretaker of the culture, they move forward with this learning from their predecessors mistakes.
