The 12 zodiac signs and the 12 Olympians

Post  MKing on Tue Jun 29, 2010 4:32 am

I always wondered if there were any connection between the two......

I am pretty sure that Zeus is connected with Jupiter/Sagittarius, and Aries is connected with Mars/Aries, But what about the others?........

Hades is connected to Pluto/Scorpio. Cronus was his daddy.

That bitch Hades dragged to hell, who's name I don't remember, to force wed is associated with Virgo. Legend has it that after her mama found out her daughter was his bitch, the mother became depressed and made Autumn/Winter. That's how we have four seasons according to them. Not sure if she rules Virgo since I don't know if she was considered a goddess or not.

Apollo, Zeus' child, is connected with the Sun/Leo.

Poseidon runs Neptune/Pisces. Cronus was his daddy.

Aphrodite is connected to Venus/Taurus/Libra. She came into being after Cronus threw Uranus' dick into the ocean. Who do you consider as her TRUE child? I always went with the bovines since they are much better looking, beauty is a Venus thing.

Cronus is connected to Saturn/Capricorn. He was the father of Hades, Zeus, and Poseidon.

Uranus was the "God" of Heaven. You know who he rules. This is Cronus' father. Cronus' kids can call him granddaddy. Zeus' kids can call him great granddaddy.

Hermes is with Mercury/Gemini/Virgo. One of Zeus' children.

Artemis rolls with the Moon/Cancer. Zeus is her daddy.

Now what's interesting is that they consider Zeus as the KING of the "Gods", but he has rulership over sagittarius. That sign DOES NOT represent kings and monarchs. Why they would let Leo be ruled by a mere grandson...I won't ever know.

The story goes that Aphrodite was sucking Ares' dick one day in bed, but she was married. Some random "god" caught her, and reported the incident to her husband. He trapped the two, and invited all the other "gods" to come witness the lovers in attempt to embarrass them. The other "gods" claimed that if they were Ares, they would skull fuck that bitch, too. Hit it, quit it, and mind your own business.

They say the only two planets that oppose the Sun are Pluto and Uranus. Pluto spins in its own twisted orbit. Uranus' ring is tilted sideways like the crack between a set of AZZ cheeks.

Really good explanation above, really spot-on. The Virgo-associate (Haedes' wife) you're thinking of is Persephone.

Anyways, back to MKing. Since Ares and Aphrodite were fucking around too much, that's how the attraction between their signs came to be. Aries-Libra, opposite signs like each other. Aries-Taurus.

I have know idea why this is the most funniest part to me. Can you just picture the thousands of kids sitting at the dinner table saying "My granddaddy did this, and my granddaddy did that..." aware or unaware, that Cronus, Zeus, and Uranus all tried to kill one another sometime in life.

I Forgot wrote:The Olympian gods ruled from a grand palace upon the highest mountain in
Greece, Mount Olympus. The gods were:

Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Ares, Athena, Apollo, Artemis,
Hephaestus, Aphrodite, Hermes, and Dionysus.
Hades (the Lord of the Dead and Supreme Ruler of the Underworld) was
not welcome on Mount Olympus, therefore he was not considered an
Olympian. Dionysus (the God of Merriment and Wine and Parties), was made an
Olympian God after Hestia (the Goddess of Hearth, Home, and Chastity),
abdicated her throne in order to keep the peace of a warring Mount
Olympus.

Zeus - Supreme ruler of the ancient Greek gods

Hera - The goddess of women, marriage, and childbirth; the wife and
sister of Zeus.

Poseidon - The god of the waters, earthquakes, and horses, and
brother of Zeus.

Demeter - The goddess of the harvest, daughter of Rhea and Cronus and
mother of Persephone.

Ares - The god of war.

Athena - The goddess of wisdom, the practical arts, and warfare, and
the protectress of cities, especially Athens.

Apollo - The Sun God of Greek mythology

Artemis - The virgin goddess of the hunt and the moon and twin sister
of Apollo.

Hephaestus - The Greek name of Vulcan, the Greek and Roman god of
fire and metalworking.

Aphrodite - The goddess of love and beauty. Also called Cytherea.

Hermes - The god of commerce, invention, cunning, and theft, who also
served as messenger, scribe, and herald for the other gods.

Dionysus - The god of wine and of an orgiastic religion celebrating
the power and fertility of nature. Also called Bacchus.

Hestia was an olympian but she gave her seat to Dionysus so she could
tend to the fire on mt olympias.

Nice work, Leon.

Okay, so far we have.....
Zeus/Jupiter/Sag
Ares/Mars/Aries
Hades/Pluto/Scorpio
Poseidon/Neptune/Pisces
Aphrodite/Venus/Taurus/Libra
Apollo/Sun/Leo
Hermes/Mercury/Gemini/Virgo
Artemis/Moon/Cancer

Titans:
Cronus/Saturn/Capricorn
Uranus/Uranus/Aquarius

Now that leaves us with the other Olympians; Hera, Demeter, Athena, Hephaestus, Hestia (originally), and Dionysus. Hmm...Maybe these Olympians have no affiliation with the zodiac signs.

If there's even moar planets to discover then Astronomers might name them after the remaining Olympians. AZZtrologers will then sort it out and assign those new planets to rule Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, and/or Libra since they're currently stuck sharing rulers.

A really obvious point here, but the planets are named after the Roman equivalents of the Greek gods.
Mercury=Hermes
Venus=Aphrodite
Mars=Ares
Jupiter=Zeus
Saturn=Cronus
Uranus is the exception and is actually the Greek naming
Neptune=Poseidon
Pluto=Hades
Juno=Demeter

Verifying this information has led me to discover that Ceres has been promoted to dwarf planet status, and that the astronomical community has "discovered" two others, Haumea and Makemake, between Pluto and Eris. Names derived from Greco-Roman mythology have officially been restricted to planets (with the exception of the asteroids that have already been named). Eris was given a name from mythology simply because it had been considered the tenth planet for a long time until its discovery was revealed to the public and the definition of planet amended.

Ah! Eris, wasn't she the considered the female Ares, or something along the line of bloodshed and war? If I remember correctly, I believe her story was similar to Lilith in a small way, no? something about being outcast, because she was disobedient.

EDIT: I always felt that Athena was related to Virgo.

Vulcan is sometimes associated with Virgo, as well.

If that's the case, then Hephaestus should be Virgo's equivalent.

I remember reading that they've officially ruled out the possibility of there being a planet (Vulcan) between Mercury and Venus. The "formula" or whatever had been faulty. The Athena association already has a body it can be attributed to (the asteroid Pallas-Athene). I personally prefer the association between Virgo and Vesta, the caring, dedicated sister. It sounds like it fits, yes?

Ewwwwww........wasn't he considered to be the most ugliest/lamest, of all the gods, and on top of that, he had no backbone, what so ever, because his wife fucked around behind his back (and probably in front of his face), and instead of whooping Ares ass, and then going upside her head, he punked out, Zeus, or Hades, or any of the other gods, would have never lets something like this happen, EVER. Hestia shouldn't have never stepped down, they should have just gave up his spot.

OT: Not too long ago, I saw this episode of Clash of the Gods, and all I am going to say is.......the real story behind Medusa's appearance, was pretty messed up. How the hell did she get punished for being raped? Like......the shit, just doesn't add up to me. Athena, was cold hearted to core, she really had it out for this woman. So much for women power.

Unless there's some other God named, Hephaestus......I am pretty sure what I said about him is true.
He is considered the ugliest/unluckiest god. check.
His wife, and Brother, basically walked all over him. check.
His wife had numerous affairs. check.
He did nothing to Ares, that could be considered punishable. check.
AND....his parents abandon him because of his looks. check.
Nothing more to talk about.

@Leon: Quick question......I know I am not the brightest bulb in the box (no pun intended ), but are those dogs in that picture? I don't know if it's just me, but in history class.....my teacher, always failed to mentioned any dogs, or cats during that period of time. but yeah, I wondered what type of pets they had during the Roman Era, dogs obviously.
