The world today started as a fresh universe. Trillions of stars in
existence, but there was absolutely no life. For millenniums, the
universe remained silent, unmoving, and lifeless. A strange force
suddenly pushed millions of stars into a single mass. The bright
mass became the creator of the universe although the stars
themselves created him. This creation became known as Arri, the
newborn giant god. For the next several years, he wandered the
Soon, Arri became lonely. He remembered how he was created, so he
tried the same process to create another god. He grabbed a handful
of stars in each hand, and clapped them together. A tiny god grew
from his hands. Since he was made from stars, he would be
considered Arri's brother. Arri named his little brother Taurn.
Taurn grew rapidly, and became Arri's size. Arri felt that one
brother wasn't enough, so he decided to create more. He repeated
this process of smashing the stars together several times. He
created his siblings* in this order; Geni, Cacir, Leoh, the twins
Vira and Lira, Scopio, Agitar, Caprifo, Aquira, and Pises. After
the creation of Pises, he was satisfied. Arri then gave them a
role. Arri, the Lord of Gods, he gave to his siblings an important
Taurn became the God of Life, and Geni became the Goddess of Light
and Duality. Arri made sure to make the roles as equal as possible,
but it was difficult, he'd already given Taurn a more godly role
than Geni. He let it go, and was more careful. Cacir became the
Goddess of Earth. Leoh pleaded to be the God of the Hunt, and Arri
agreed. The twins, Vira and Lira wanted the same roles, but they
couldn't. Arri had a tough decision, but in the end, Vira became
the Goddess of Chastity and Lira became the Goddess of the Scale.
Arri let Scopio be the God of Death, which seemed fitting to his
personality. Agitar wanted to be the God of Metal and Weaponry, and
Arri figured it made sense, he looked like the kind of God who
would be in charge of that. Aquira had the most obvious one, she
was the Goddess of the Sea. Lastly, Pises got the last choice, but
she was fine with it. She became the Goddess of Music and Season.
Everyone was satisfied.
Aquira made a world of water. Cacir saw the ball of water and
insisted she could add some land to it. Aquira agreed, and
together, they made Earth. Taurn created millions of creatures to
inhabit the newly created planet. One of the creatures was the
human. Geni then took over the creation of Earth. She gave the
planet a star, which is now the Sun. While creating the Sun, she
accidentally let out some of her magic. Because of Geni, some
people have dual personalities or twins. Leoh became a miniature
lion god and visited Earth because he saw the humans dying. What
Leoh did changed the humans again.
He taught the humans to hunt animals so they could survive. He also
taught them several other skills that he thought might be useful.
Leoh taught to them competiveness, strength, and ferocity. Arri saw
Leoh teaching them, and soon, he had thoughts it could end badly,
so he ordered Leoh to leave. Agitar came and visited, and gave them
quick lessons how to make weapons and left before Arri noticed.
Pises was the last to come down to Earth. She sang songs and played
songs to the humans and they learned to entertain themselves
quickly. Then there were no more visits to Earth.
Over time, the gods and goddesses created the worlds. There were so
many worlds they had created that a few accidents happened while
working together. Many of them involved Taurn's ability to create
entirely new creatures. Mostly, it was Taurn's clumsiness that
caused the accidents. The first accident occurred when creating the
first few species of today's ancestors. Taurn accidentally shot
Arri with his ability to create creatures, and Arri became a ram
god. Then Taurn himself became a bull. After a series of clumsy
accidents, Cacir became a crab, Leoh became a lion, Scopio became a
scorpion, Agitar became a mutant, a centaur rather than an ordinary
horse, Caprifo became a goat, and finally, Pises somehow became two
fish. Pises's mutation is only a miracle she survived, she became
two fish who constantly were in some sort of a trance, as if they
were chasing each other's tails. After Pises's mutation, Arri made
Taurn more careful, with his magic. There were no more accidents.
The Solar System today was made after the accidents. First, Leoh
took over the Sun, because Geni had left it. The Sun was too hot to
physically live there, so Leoh spent the rest of his day in orbit
around it. She and Vira created Mercury together and lived there.
Then Lira and Taurn shared their next creation, Venus. Earth was
left alone to the creatures that inhabit it. Cacir made a moon for
Earth and lived there. Arri took his turn, and created a giant red
ball to live on. He named it Mars. Agitar then stepped in, and made
the largest planet he could possibly make, yet it's still smaller
then Geni's enormous Sun. Agitar named his planet Jupiter. Caprifo
wanted something unique, so he gave his planet a huge size and
dazzling rings, and called it Saturn. Aquira simply created a blue
planet and named it Uranus. Pises liked the idea, and made a
smaller blue planet named Neptune. Finally, Scopio fled to the
outskirts of the Solar System and gave himself a dwarf-planet
called Pluto. There were several moons made for other planets, but
none of the gods or goddesses wanted them. They were left alone.
Eventually, the gods and goddesses went along with their daily
lives. They simply lived on their planets, watching over the
creatures on Earth. Then one day, Arri got tired of living. He felt
that everything was done. He told his five brothers and six sisters
about it, and they were feeling the same. To keep the universe
going, they would give up their bodies to the stars, and the
magical abilities they had would be dispersed all over Earth. That
explains why some people are stronger than others, or more
completive. So their magic went down to Earth and the other planets
to keep them alive, and the remains became the twelve Zodiacal
constellations in the sky. It took several years to get them
settled in their afterlife, when they will be gliding across the
sky, not shifting positions, or breathing.
The twelve Zodiacs received new names as constellations. Arri,
being the first god and the Lord of Gods was renamed Aries after
leaving his life. The siblings all died in the same order they were
born. Taurn was renamed Taurus, Geni renamed Gemini, and Cacir was
renamed Cancer. Leoh couldn't have a real dramatic change, so he
simply dropped a letter and was renamed Leo. Then the twins Vira
and Lira were renamed Virgo and Libra. Scopio didn't want a change,
but Arri told him beforehand that Scopio had to obey, so he simply
became Scorpio. Agitar renamed himself with a complicated name,
Sagittarius. Caprifo was renamed Capricorn. The last two were
renamed Aquarius and Pisces. After Pisces died, all twelve Zodiacs
took years to settle in their new positions in the night sky.
Today, people recognize the 12 gods as the astrological Zodiacs.
