Myth or Legend Associated with my Constellation:
The Phoenix is a Mythical Songbird that lived on aromatic herbs such as cinnamon, frankincense and myrrh. Every 500 years, It builds a nest out of It's ashes, and then burns up (burn, baby burn). It then is born again from the ashes as a baby. It then grows again, and at 475 years It begins to get old and starts to wither up.and at 500 years, It does the same thing again. When It is mature (25-475 years), It has gold and crimson plumadge. The Phoenix is featured in Chinies, Indian, and egiption cultures.
The Phoenix has been featured in Harry Potter as Fawx, Dumbledores pet. Enstead of burning up every 500 years, It burns up every 100 years.When Dumbledre dies, Fawx disapears, but he may have whent to the sky, and turned into Phoenix the Firebird, with alittle help from dumbledore.
