The victory over fears is connected with it. Tishtar patronizes sciences, space and can give keys to discovery of their secrets. Zoroastrians considered that Tishtar is connected with a star Sirius.
From the Iranian mythology it is known that Tishtar is a zlatoukhy and zlatouzdy horse (an embodiment of a star of Tishtriya) who won against the Evil ghost who made fight with water and with plants - so that they dried up. Tishtar drinks ocean water with the seeds of various plants which are showered from a wave of wings Senmurva and spreads a rain - so seeds get to the soil.
“ Tishtar found ability to spill a rain. It accepted three images: image of the person, image of a horse and image of a bull. It shone thirty days and nights, and in every (image) ten days and nights it spilled a rain therefore astrologers speak: “ Each star has three images “. Each drop of this rain became such big as a vessel, and water climbed all earth in the human growth, and harmful creatures on the earth all were beaten by that rain and crept away in an earth crack. Then the spirit of wind that (wind) was not mixed, forces wind to move in air just as the soul moves in a body. And it swept away all water and carried (it) at the end of the earth, and the sea Frakhvkard was formed of it.
Dead harmful creatures appeared in the earth, both their poison and a stench mixed up with it. To remove a poison from the earth, Tishtar fell to the sea in an image of a white horse with a long tail. Then towards to (it) there was a demon Aposh, like a horse with a black short tail. (i) Tishtar on (distance) in one frasang because drove concern ran off it. And he asked victories for Ormazd, and Ormazd gave it strength and power - strength of ten horses, ten camels, ten bulls, ten mountains and ten rivers, and the demon in Aposh on (distance) in one frasang for fear (before it) force ran off it: that is why speak about an arrow, (let?) Tishtar`s (strength).
Then a cloud and the moon as khoum (so call a vessel - the tool for this business), Tishtar took water and forced (it) to spill a rain with a huge force drops (size) about the head of a bull, about the head of the person, size about a fist, size about a palm, big and small. During this rain battled Aspendzhargak and dev Aposh, and there was fire of Vazisht, and from the hard blow of its club (dev Aspendzhargak) loudly cried and therefore now, during fight with the organizer of a rain the thunder and a lightning appear.
Thus (ten) days and nights (Tishtar) was spilled by a rain, both those poison and poison of harmful creatures that were in the earth, all mixed up with water, and water became salty because in the earth remained (quantity) of a seed of those harmful creatures (that) they always accumulate.
the Evil ghost Amakhraspand Amordad as the owner of plants crushed them and mixed with water (which) was taken by Tishtar, and Tishtar spilled this water a rain on all earth. And on all earth plants as hair on the head of the person grew. Ten thousand them grew one main type for prevention of ten thousand types of diseases which were nasozdavat for creations by the Evil ghost. Hundred twenty thousand species of plants grew from these ten thousand plants, and from the same seeds of plants the tree of all seeds is created. It grew in the sea Frakhvkard, from it (“ from which “) seeds of all species of plants grow. Near this tree of all seeds the tree Gokirn for prevention of the choking old age is created, and from it proceeded (“ was “) full defense of peace … “ (//Zoroastrian texts.
