Planets and Constellations
In Response To: Re: Adam ()

Traditional Astrology has the following correspondences between the "ruling" planets/gods and the zodiac signs/constellations:

Sun: Leo
Moon: Cancer
Mercury: Gemini and Virgo
Venus: Taurus and Libra
Mars: Aries and Scorpio
Jupiter: Pisces and Sagittarius
Saturn: Aquarius and Capricorn

Modern astrology has substituted Uranus as ruler of Aquarius, Neptune as ruler of Pisces, and Pluto as ruler of Scorpio.

These are the Roman gods, largely taken over from the corresponding Greek ones. Correspondences with the gods of other traditions can be arrived at by comparing them to the Roman or Greek gods.

When it comes to the biblical correspondences between the zodiacal signs and the "tribes" of Israel or "sons of Jacob", there is a lot of confusion (even among the Jews) as to which tribe would correspond to which sign or constellation.
