Did you know that a deep connection exists between the twelve zodiac signs and mythical creatures? You must be curious to know which mythical creature represents your zodiac sign. So let’s find out your perfect mythical match in the world of mermaids, elves, wolves, fairies and more!
Have you ever wondered about the reason behind the creation of mythical creatures? Greek myths were actually created to reflect the reality of our life and existence. Each mythical creature is developed in such a way as to reflect the good and evil traits that are a natural part of humanity.
Our honor and our fear, our greed and shame– all these traits are reflected by various mythological creatures. Surprisingly, much about the astrological signs is founded in mythology. Hence, it is perfectly logical that there is a specific mythical creature for each zodiac sign.
There can be no surprise if we say that the sultry and dark image of a vampire fits with the primary seductress among the zodiacs– the Scorpio– while the spirit animal of the fiery zodiac Aries is the werewolf!
Find out whether your zodiac correlates with the appropriate mythological being.
Here’s what mythical creature you are, based on your zodiac sign.
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Mythical Creature: Werewolves
The fiery intensity and raw power of the Aries are perfectly embodied by the Werewolves. These beasts pursue their desires with a fierce passion, much like the Aries. According to the Lycans legend, werewolves were actually a group of humans that could willfully turn themselves into bigger than normal wolves. But there are also stories that claim that it was a curse that changed humans into half-human/half-wolf beasts on a full moon night without their consent

2. Taurus (April 20 – May 21)
Mythical Creature: Dryads
No mythical creature screams Taurus louder than the Dryad. Dryads are wood spirits that share a deep connection with the trees. It is believed that if the tree that a dryad comes from is felled, the dryad dies too. This represents their strong tie to their home and roots. They also protect the woods with loyalty and are eager to spread their healing powers to those in need. Clearly, Taureans emit the strength of dryads. They are sensual, fair and ethereal.

3. Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
Mythical Creature: Small Fairies
These small fairies are magical creatures of tiny stature and mischievous, playful nature. They are usually portrayed with wings similar to butterflies or insects. Fairies cannot lie, but they have a way with words and very good persuasive powers.

4. Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Mythical Creature: Sirens
Often confused with mermaids, but originally, Sirens were sea-creatures with wings. In many legends, Sirens are depicted as attractive women who sang in their mystical voices and lured sailors to danger and drowned them. In other tales, they sang to lure sailors to the rocks and devoured the humans themselves. Either way, they represent the moody and pessimistic traits of Cancers.

5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Mythical Creature: Nephilim
In some folklore, they are the giant offspring of humans and angels that are stronger and bigger than humans, but also dumber. In other tales, they are these handsome creatures with foldable wings of ether and are famous for their passion, intensity and ruthless nature. Mighty, handsome, vain, and attracted to lavishness sounds quite Leo to me! What do you think?
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Mythical Creature: Elves
Just like the analytical nature of Virgos, Elves value logic above everything else. They are peaceful, magical creatures who live by their system of values and are extremely beautiful. Generally, they live separately from society and can prove to be either helpful or a hindrance to humans.
