For the discussion below, use the following chart for reference:

There is a perfect match between the characterizations of the 12 sons of Jacob in the Book of Genesis and the 12 major (most ancient) northern constellations in the night sky.

1) “Reuben, you are my first-born, my might, and the first fruits of my strength, pre-eminent in pride and pre-eminent in power.  Unstable as water, you shall not have pre-eminence because you went up to your father’s bed.” Gen. 49:3-4 (RSV)

Reuben ("intemperate/volatile") represents the constellation Cygnus the Swan/Goose, which includes the Northern Cross and the pole stars Deneb ("the rose upon the cross") and delta Cygni.  Cygnus is a source of intense x-ray radiation and concomitant “noise/cackling” from powerful neutron stars and perhaps even one or more black holes.  It is the most prolific star-producing region of our galaxy, and perhaps where intelligent life in our galaxy first took hold. However, increasing volatility made this region unstable for dominant/intelligent life to remain securely established, ala the Biblical blessing (and curse) of Reuben. Two sustained bursts of radiation during the last Ice Age may also have come from the direction of Cygnus (or from Eta Carinae near Cygnus X-1) and may have contributed to gigantism on Earth.  (See discussion in Paul LaViolette, Earth Under Fire, pp 88-92 and Andrew Collins, The Cygnus Mystery, pp 250-263)

Cygnus is in the Great Rift of the Milky Way, which represents the most fertile (“vulva”) region of the galaxy.  Consistenet with this, the mythical High God Zeus could take the form of the Swan, as he did to impregnate Leda (a type of Cassiopeia) leading to the birth of the beautiful Helen of Troy (a type of Andromeda).

The ancient Egyptian counterpart of Reuben ("the eldest son") was Geb, who was the "bull of his mother" and is depicted as impregnating the goddess Nut stretched out above him (even as the Milky Way lies in relation to Cygnus). An epithet of Geb was "The Cackler" and his animal was also the goose.

2) & 3) “Simeon and Levi are brothers; weapons of violence are their swords. O my soul, come not into their council; O my spirit, be not joined to their company; for in their anger they slay men, and in their wantonness they hamstring oxen. Cursed be their anger, for it is fierce; and their wrath, for it is cruel!  I will divide them in Jacob and scatter them in Israel.” Gen. 49:5-7 (RSV)

Simeon is the constellation Cepheus (similar to the alias of Simon Peter in the Gospels) with its pole stars iota Cephei, gamma Cephei (Alrai) and alpha Cephei (Alderamin). This constellation is usually depicted as a king, but the Hindu/Sanskrit name of the constellation is Kapi, “Ape-Man,” i.e., "Simian."

In Greek Myth, Cepheus is also called Acrisius, “Ill-Judgment” and is the younger (twin/rival) brother of Proetus, “First Man.” Initially, Proetus and Acrisius were to take turns ruling the kingdom of their father Abas (“Lizard”).  However, Proetus like Reuben, is disgraced over a sexual indiscretion, that is, seducing the daughter of Acrisius. Acrisius uses this as justification to retain control of the kingdom permanently, however Proetus raises an army to confront Acrisius. The battle is a draw and the two agree to rule side-by-side kingdoms. Proetus took the southeastern part (around Tiryns) and Acrisius the northwestern (around Argos), even as the adjacent constellations of Cygnus and Cepheus are in relation to one another.  In cosmological terms, the two began together, but separated due to their excessive energies.

Levi ("united but scattered") is the widely-dispersed and winding constellation of Draco the Dragon.  (Levi is related to the Hebrew name Leviathan, "Serpent.")  The constellation of Draco ("Dragon") has a single pole star, Thuban (alpha Draco). Reuben and Simeon were twins that fought one another as rivals.  Simeon and Levi were brothers that conspired together in cold-blooded murder.

4) “Judah, your brothers shall praise you; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father’s sons shall bow down before you.  Judah is a lion’s whelp; … and as a lioness; who dares rouse him up?  The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he [Shiloh] comes to whom it belongs; … Binding his foal [son] to the vine [Joseph, see below] and his ass’s colt to the choice vine.” Gen 49:8-11 (RSV)

Judah ("small but powerful and highly praised") is Ursa Minor, the northernmost (“highest”) constellation of all the northern constellations. It contains three pole stars, Polaris, Kochab and Pherkad, which are also stars of the "Little Dipper." It is in Ursa Minor that the secret of immortality, the mythical "Apples of Hesperides" was said to have been discovered. Ursa Minor means the "Little Bear" and the bear is the "lion of the north," i.e., the top predator of the arctic regions. In the Bible, the Heavenly Jerusalem is also to be found in “the sides of the north,” and logically between the Heavenly Tribes of Judah and Benjamin (as reflected on Earth) in the constellation of Levi.

5) “Issachar is a strong ass, crouching between the sheepfolds; he saw that a resting place was good, and that the land was pleasant; so he bowed his shoulder to bear, and bcame a slave at forced labor.”  Gen. 49:14-15 (RSV)

Ursa Major means "Big Bear," however the original name for this constellation was "The Leg/Thigh." Consistent with this, the Hebrew phrase "strong/raw-boned donkey" (garam khamar) can be interpreted as the "glowing (leg) bone." Issachar is therefore the constellation of Ursa Major.  

Genesis 49:14 likens Issachar to a "strong donkey" that was saddled with twin burdens, i.e., the constellations of Simeon/Cepheus and Levi/Draco, and chose to submit to their "tribute." This suggests that the constellations of Cepheus and Draco were "disgraced" over their treatment of Ursa Major.

http://www.constellationsofwords.com/Constellations/UrsaMajor.html

Ursa Major is the only major northern constellation without a pole star.  And there was no savior for Ursa Minor in its own time of need. Reuben and Judah were considered partners/allies in the Biblical account, not in rescuing Issachar but Joseph from the plot of their other brothers.

6) “Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough by a spring; his branches run over the wall. The archers fiercely attacked him, shot at him, and harassed him sorely; yet his bow remained unmoved, his arms were made agile by the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob. … The blessings of your father are mighty beyond the blessings of the eternal mountains, the bounties of the everlasting hills, may they be on the head of Joseph and on the brow of him who was separate from his brothers.” Gen. 49:22-26 (RSV)

Joseph ("the Good Shepherd" and "Vintner") is the constellation of the husbandman Bootes. Biblical Joseph was the partner of Judah and the name of the very bright pole star Arcturus (alpha Bootes) means "protector of Ursa," i.e., Ursa Minor.
