The Phoenix - Greek Mythology

The Phoenix is a mythical bird that lives for 500 years, which at the end of its life it bursts into flames. From the ashes of the Phoenix a new one is born. The Phoenix is a sign of rebirth, revitalization or replenishment throughout many ancient myths.

The legends around this beautiful and powerful bird are many. One reading will give the impression the Phoenix was a pet of the gods that was allowed to fly to earth, while another will state the Phoenix was in fact a god. On the other hand, you may even hear the Phoenix is no more than an extinct bird being no more important than a dove or swan.

The Phoenix’s appearance was that of a large, majestic bird with fire for wings, tail feathers were orange and deep yellow, with a body that was dark orange, red, and crimson. Many believe the Phoenix resembled a modern day heron only quite a bit larger in comparison. Archaeologists have discovered the remains of a very large heron that lived in the Persian Gulf area 5,000 years ago. This might be considered the Phoenix of legends.

The Phoenix was believed to have unique powers, which included controlling the amount of heat it projected from its own fiery body and its shrill call that could bring a person to tears and give them a loss of hearing for many days and in some cases weeks. The last power is the one to do with the rebirth, thus no Phoenix ever dies.
