In Greek Mythology, Lyra represents the lyre of Orpheus. Made by Hermes from a tortoiseshell, given to Apollo as a bargain, it was said to be the first lyre ever produced. Orpheus's music was said to be so great that even inanimate objects such as trees, streams, and rocks could be charmed. In modern astrology, the Lyra constellation features Vega, the fifth brightest star in our solar system and the second brightest star in the northern hemisphere.

In Greek mythology, Leo was identified as the Nemean Lion which was killed by Heracles (Hercules to the Romans) during the first of his twelve labours. The Nemean Lion would take women as hostages to its lair in a cave, luring warriors from nearby towns to save the damsel in distress, to their misfortune.
The mythology of the constellation Pegasus. The white, winged horse Pegasus was the offspring of Poseidon and the Gorgon, Medusa, springing from the latter's neck when she was killed by Perseus. He immediately flew to Mount Helicon and struck the ground with his hoof.
