Myth Buster ! Like every other constellation in space, they always have a story or myth behind their closets. The Peacock, or the Pavo was the symbol of the Goddess Hera. According to mythology, she was the Queen of all Gods. Hera was the goddess of women and marriage. She was the wife and older sister of the all mighty Zeus. Zeus is the King of all Gods. One day, Zeus commanded Hermes, the god of messaging, to rescue Io. However, Zeus warned Hermes about the one hundred eyed beast, Argus. Hermes played his flute and it had made Argus fall asleep. At this point Hermes had a chance to cut off his head. Then, Hera sent Io to where Zeus changed her back from a cow to a normal human. After Io was saved, Hera put all of Argus’s eyes on the end of her bird’s tail. http://images.fanpop.com/images/image_ uploads/Zeus-and-Hera-greek-mythology- 687002_1000_845.jpg \ Http://www.constellationsofwords.com/images/Pavo.jpg
