Pegasus Dreams

I had a dream once that was very vivid. I dreamed of Pegasus, the winged horse. It was a huge white steed, noticeably strong in statue and had beautiful golden illuminating wings. I remember being in awe of this creature, and was talking with him. No one else but me could see him. After our communication, I remember him flying boldly straight up into the sky on departure.

They say that to dream of Pegasus, means a calling to create your expressions of beauty through whatever creative means you desire. It has also become a symbol of immortality and the protector of the spirit, the guardian of the soul. I have been drawn to horses since I was old enough to remember; I consider them one of my totems.

In mythology, Pegasus was an immortal, winged horse who sprang forth from the neck of Medousa when she was beheaded by the hero Perseus. Pegasus was said to be tamed by Bellerophon who rode him into battle against fire-breathing Khimaira. The hero attempted to fly to the heavens, but the horse bucked (influenced by the gods) and threw him back to earth. The horse then winged it’s way to the heavens to be in Zeus’ stables. Pegasus is one star in a constellation.

The 51 Pegasi, a star in the Pegasus constellation is the first Sun-like star, discovered in 1995 (51 light years from earth) known to have an extra solar planet, that is, a planet orbiting a sun that was a twin or ours. It is visible from the Earth with binoculars, or with the naked eye under dark sky conditions.
