History: Pegasus is one of the most recognizable creatures in mythology. In Greek myth, the Pegasus represents a spring of poetic inspiration. His hooves herald the flow of Hippocrene, a spring on Mt. Helicon that was sacred to the Muses.
Pegasus was born from the neck of Medusa when Perseus beheaded her in the classic myth. He was told to bring the head of the gorgon by King Polydectes, who was hoping to destroy him with the dangerous task. Polydectes had taken Perseus' mother Danae as a slave, and Perseus slayed the Medusa to save her.
If the face of the Medusa represents a mask to strike fear into the hearts of potential invaders, then the defeat of the mask and birth of Pegasus could symbolize the triumphant emergence of creative inspiration. On the wings of Pegasus, one flies from fear and rage to love and beauty.
The Phoenix is another ubiquitous mythological symbol, spanning many cultures throughout history. Despite its widespread interpretations, the Phoenix has universal characteristics: A fire-colored bird that resurrects itself after living a long life.
In alchemy, the Phoenix symbolizes the completion of The Great Work, the Philosopher’s Stone, and regeneration through fire.
In alchemy, the phoenix symbolizes the Philosopher’s Stone, the consummation of the Great Work. It symbolizes (rebirth) regeneration through fire and is highly regarded as a symbol of regeneration.
