Demeter‘s connection with Virgo has survived even to modern days: Virgo is frequently depicted as a woman carrying grain, in the likeness of Demeter. While Demeter is technically not a virgin, in the myth she and Poseidon has a doughter - Persephone, similar to how Hera remains a perpetual virgin by bathing on special springs (curiously, like Hera, Demeter too has a role in the protection of marriages). Likewise, unlike Aphrodite, Demeter seems to have a more “chaste” form of fertility, being less of a sexual goddess and more focused on the nurturing aspects of the creation of new life. At any rate, Virgo does not stand for literal virginity as much as a spiritual one, forsaking desires for duty

As the King of the gods, Zeus‘ connection with Leo is appropriate as it is the "king of the Zodiac signs". The connection gains a lot more weight in mythology: Zeus is closely associated with Helios, perhaps even more so than Apollo, as Helios is referred as "the eye of Zeus" and is referred as Zeus in his own Orphic hymn. Aether (the primordial light that illumines the Heavens) is "Zeus' power", and his role as the god of civilization, justice and law is very similar to that of sun gods like Shamash and Ra (Apollo also shares these traits, as he too is a god of justice and law). Zeus is outright referred as the Sun in some particular Greco-roman religious traditions like Pythagorean philosophy, where he is the supramundane Sun of the Olympians.As the Sun symbolizes the center, so is Leo's position in the Zodiac indicative.

Scorpio is the second Mars sign, and the one that most relates to Ares: while the fiery aspects of Aries might relate to him to some extent, it’s the more emotional Scorpio that resonates closer to him and his primal nature. As the later Autumn sign, Scorpio is related to Winter’s start, and thus to sunset-like conditions: as the Sun dims, so does life. Scorpio is defined by it’s loyalty bordering on possessiveness, as well as a rather strong impulsive nature but consciously made subtle or even outright hidden. Ares displays a surprising amount of loyalty to his family, even when most of Olympus doesn’t like him very much, and while numerous, his affairs are occult, unlike Zeus’ or Apollo’s. This reflects water as darkness: driven by strong impulses, but with the element of mystery and hidden nature. Due to Scorpio’s vindictiveness and hidden nature, it is often considered the most malign of the signs, just as Ares is the most distrusted of the Olympians, but neither are “evil” and while unpleasant they are necessary for the inner workings of nature. Darkness is after all important to health in it’s Melatonin friendliness, especially when it’s connected to water.

Hephaestus‘ correspondence with Libra is derived from his role as the smith god. By crafting fire, he made the weapons that the gods use to impose justice, down to the scales of Dike, the goddess of justice, often thought to be the woman depicted in the sign. As just, Hephaestus is a god of innovation, taming the chaos of the flames to produce items to impose civilization.

The silver coin from the Czech Mint´s gift series with motifs of 12 signs of the zodiac will become not only a beautiful, but also a valuable talisman for everyone who was born in the sign of Cancer.

The constellation of Cancer was named after the ancient Greek legend of Heracles, who encountered a hydro and its helper - a huge crayfish, while performing the legendary twelve tasks. Crabs in human form are vulnerable like fragile aquatic crustaceans - they are compassionate, receptive and empathetic, full of emotions. In addition to the stars, they are also ruled by Luna - the Moon, which symbolizes the desire to indulge in feelings and instincts. Cancer life is devoted to helping others, but they are also happy to be cared for. However, both can grow into emotional dependence. Their protective place is usually home and they like creative activities.

The non-traditional oval coin bears a colored image of Cancer on the reverse side. Photographs or computer graphics were not used as a template for coloring - the coin's author, Asamat Baltaev, DiS., created an original watercolor painting. The relief in the background behind Cancer presents a disk with a dozen zodiac signs. The composition of the reverse is supplemented with the Latin inscription CANCER, together with the corresponding astrological symbol. Since the coins of the Czech Mint are licensed by the foreign issuer, the island of Niue, the obverse side bears its national emblem, the nominal value of ONE DOLLAR (NZD) and the year of issue 2021. All this is surrounded by twelve astrological signs.

The coin is stored in an elegant box.
