Mythology

Post by chewauro »

Hello everyone

I am particularly interested in weaving mythology with constellations, associating those stories with the stars. As such, would like to seek recommendations of relevant sources(books, websites, magazines, etc) which any of you might be aware of, which would be beneficial to me.

Thank you:)

Hi chewauro. Welcome to the forum.

This may be a good book to learn more about such mythology:

The New Patterns in the Sky: Myths and Legends of the Stars
http://www.amazon.com/New-Patterns-Sky- ... 027&sr=8-1

Kinokuniya is carrying this book. If you want to buy it, perhaps can wait for the 20% storewide discounts which should be available anytime from now till end of the year.

If you can find a cheaper source, by all means go ahead. Hope you enjoy your stay here. :)
