Centaur Gifts

In Greek mythology, a centaur is a member of a composite race of creatures, part human and part horse. This half-human and half-animal composition has led many writers to treat them as liminal beings, caught between the two natures, embodied in contrasted myths, both as the embodiment of untamed nature, as in their battle with the Lapiths, or conversely as teachers, like Chiron.


What are Centaurs?
Centaurs are mythological creatures who have the head, arms, and chest of a human and the rest of its body is that of a horse. Centaurs are the followers of the wine god Dionysus, male centaurs are known for drunkenness, lewd behavior and for carrying off helpless young maidens.

Centaurs are said to inhabit Mount Pelion in Thessaly, found in northern Greece as well as the Foloi oak forest in Elis, and the Malean peninsula in southern Laconia.

Female centaurs are called Kentaurides, are less prevalent in Greek literature and art, but they do appear occasionally in later antiquity.

Other Names: Kentauroi, Ixionidae, Hippocentaur,Centaurian, Centaurides, Centauress (female), Kentaurides (female), Centaurettes (female)

Famous Centaurs:

Chiron: Unlike most centaurs, Chiron was a centaur that was known for his exceptional goodness and wisdom. Chiron was the only immortal centaur. Chiron was accidentally wounded by Heracles. As an immortal, Chiron could not die, but he lived in terrible pain. Chiron chose to trade his life for the release of Prometheus.

Eurytion: Eurytion led the Centaurs into the battle that broke out at Peirithous's wedding. Losing this battle resulted, meant the Centaurs were forced out from their home on Mount Pelion.

Centaurs Centaurs


History: Images and illustrations of centaurs date back to Assyria in 2000 BC and India in 3000 BC. It is also thought that the idea of the centaur originated when non-riding cultures were introduced to nomads mounted on horses. The theory suggests that such riders would appear as half-man, half-animal, to someone never having been introduced to horseback riding.

Centaurs are best known for their appearances in Greek mythology. There were said to be two families of centaurs, the first family were said to be the offspring of Ixion (son of Ares) and a cloud nymph, Nephele. This group was known for raucous and offensive behavior, the traits they inherited from humans were said to make them ignorant and yet cunning. The second group of centaurs which included the kind-hearted Chiron, was said to be the offspring of Cronus, the Titan and Philyra, an ocean nymph.

Iconic Symbols: Many think of centaurs in conjunction with archery, but that is simply do to the astrological sign, Sagittarius.

Did You Know?

A centaur is one of the symbols associated with both the Iota Phi Theta and the Delta Lambda Phi fraternities.

Meanings: Centaurs were said to represent dark and unruly forces, due to their partying ways. Centaurs symbolize indulgence, desires and unbridled passions. Instead of mastering or taming their unruly instincts, the centaurs are ruled by their instincts. Centaurs represent violent lust, adultery, brutality, vengefulness, heretics, and the Devil. Centaurs also represent the inner-struggle for good and evil, moderation and excess, passion and propriety, and forgiveness and retaliation.
