Cynosure

Mythological Dictionary

The constellation Ursa Minor ("little bear") was called Kunosoura ("the dog's tail") by the astronomer Aratus, who saw in it one of the nymphs who raised the infant Zeus. Long a guiding star for seafarers, it has given us the word cynosure which can describe anything that serves to focus attention or give guidance.
