AstroSagas Podcast: Episode 1
Aries: The Golden Fleece
AstroSagas: Stories from the Stars is our new podcast series on Daily Astrology Guide! Each episode will focus on a myth or story related to an astrology sign, diving deep into the rich history of each sign in order to learn what we can integrate from each energetic symbol.
This week we cover the story of Chrysomallus, the golden ram.
The story of Chrysomallus and the Golden Fleece is at the center of Aries mythology and related to our ideas about kingship, royalty, nobility, and strength of character.
The Golden Ram was called upon by Nephele , the goddess of the clouds, to save her children from their own father, Athamas, who had been convinced by his new wife, Ino, that he needed to sacrifice his children in order to make the crops in his kingdom grow.
Chrysomallus flew in and saved the children, intending to fly them across the Black Sea to safety. Helle, the younger twin, did not survive the voyage, and fell at a point called Hellespont in classical antiquity. Prixhus and Chrysomallus made it across the Black Sea to Colchis, now modern day Georgia.
