Hestia's main sign if Capricorn, which stresses her more subtle but relevant nature. Capricorn, like Sagittarius, also stresses order, stability and stoicness. More so, it takes theses traits further and is a sign associated with practicality, hard work, strong will and stubbornness. Hestia, as the perpetual tender of the flames, is definitely a very hard working and practical goddess, and while I by no means would refer to her as “stubborn”, she does have a strong will in what little myths she appears in. Capricorn is also relevant in it’s role in the Zodiac. It’s the sign that covers the Winter Solstice, when the Sun is at it’s lowest, being opposite to Cancer. Thus, not only does it coincide with the time of the year where Hestia’s influence is most important, as well as to her role as the center, it also coincides with a liminal time in the Zodiac, when the Sun is reborn.

Do you know why there are two fishes in the celestial constellation? This can be answered by ancient Greek myths about the monster Tyfon, from whom even the ancient gods themselves had to hide. Everyone turned into an animal out of fear, and the goddess of love Aphrodite and her son Eros chose a fish appearance. In order not to lose each other in a sharp stream of water, they tied their tails with a gibbon… The lives of Pisces in human form are ruled by emotions. They absorb the moods of their surroundings - positive and negative - and then behave according to them. Sensitivity and extraordinary sense of empathy make them great helpers who are always willing to lend a helping hand. However, their lack of self-confidence often leads to situations where they allow themselves to be abused. In addition to the constellation, the Pisces is also ruled by the planet Neptune. In astrology, it often points to individuals who love impersonally - such as humanity as a whole - which can sometimes lead to self-sacrifice, which the Pisces often commits.

The non-traditional oval-shaped coin bears a colored image of the Fish on the reverse side. Photographs or computer graphics were not used as a template for coloring - the author of the coin, Asamat Baltaev, DiS., created an original watercolor painting. The relief in the background of Pisces presents a disk with a dozen zodiac signs. The composition of the reverse side is then supplemented with the Latin inscription PISCES and the corresponding astrological symbol. Since the coins of the Czech Mint are licensed by a 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.

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.

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.
