Yes, I think we should change the course of the heavens to better fit my theory!
Seriously, the study of the fixed movement of the universe I call astronomy. Astrology is in my mind something very different and not at all sacred.
It is true that after Anu was maimed and banished Enlil took over the practical rulership. There is a strong bull aspect about Enlil as well, so perhaps this is the source of confusion. The blessing of Asher (Enlil) also emphasizes bread (wheat?) and so there is a possible confusion with Virgo. Many people think that the son/tribe Asher corresponds to the goddess Ashera (Isis).
I would be interested in hearing from other readers on this topic.
