Pisces is associated with Aphrodite and Eros, the who escaped from the monster Typhon by leaping into the sea and transforming themselves into fish. In order not to lose each other, they tied themselves together with rope. The Romans adopted the Greek legend, with Venus and Cupid acting as the counterparts for Aphrodite and Eros. The knot of the rope is marked by Alpha Piscium (α Psc), also called Al-Rischa ("the cord" in Arabic).

Two celestial crowns adorn the summer sky, Corona Borealis and Corona Australis. The star clouds of the Milky Way separate the twin diadems. Keep a binoculared eye on the star R Coronae Borealis to catch it in one of its unusual disappearing acts. (Credit: Jimmy Westlake)

There are two starry crowns that twinkle in our summer sky, one in the north and one in the south. Although each is a tiny constellation, their shapes are so distinctive that locating them is a snap. They lie nearly 90 degrees apart in the sky, on opposite banks of the river of stars we see as the Milky Way arching across our summer sky.

Corona Borealis. The alpha star is also known as Alphekka or Gemma. T Coronae Borealis is the Blaze Star, a recurrent nova. R Coronae Borealis is an unusual variable star. The italic numbers next to stars are their visual magnitudes to the nearest tenth (with the decimal point omitted). North is up and east is left. (Credit: Sky & Telescope)

Hercules and Corona Borealis, two constellations depicted in the 19th century Urania's Mirror. You can also see the obsolete constellation Cerebrus in Hercules's hand. Hevelius invented it, but represented the 3-headed dog that guarded an entrance to Hades as a 3-headed snake. The constellation isn't in use anymore.

Argo Navis, large & ancient constellation of the southern skies, it represents the ship that Jason & the Argonauts used to search for the Golden Fleece. It's no longer one constellation, having been broken down into three separate ones by Lacaille: Carina, the keel; Puppis, the ship's deck; & Vela, the sail. Pyxis, the compass, was also added near the ship. (Credit: Hevelius, Uranographia) Mona Evans, "Obsolete Constellations" http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art300737.asp

This happens at the June solstice. A few thousand years ago, the Sun was in the constellation Cancer at this time, but due to precession, it's now within the boundary of Taurus at the June solstice.
