♇ when you link astrology to greek mythology, everything will make much more sense. especially with the characteristics of the signs and the behaviour, you'll find it synchronising with the greek gods and goddesses they're ruled by!
ARIES IN GREEK MYTHOLOGY
♂️ i think it is obvious who represents Aries in Greek Lore, and that being Ares the God of War. Ares Roman Counterpart is Mars and Mars being the ruler of Aries is how I made that link of Aries being ruled by Ares [and the obvious identical pronunciation the two share]
♂️ Ares is known for his rage, violent behaviour and his constant need for bloodshed; which Mars the planetary ruler of Aries is known for. Mars being perceived as a malefic planet and it sprouting out malicious behaviour.
♂️ the God of War was also known for his love affair with Aphrodite that was exposed by Hephaestus to the Gods. This could manifest into Aries being known for passion along with it being Ruled by Mars as it rules over strong libido and having a strong libido can cause problems. Like judgement and love affairs which are frowned upon.
♂️ aside from that and back to the obvious point of Aries, as Mars embodies war and war divides people. This could insinuate that Aries/Mars can bring a lot of disagreements wherever it resides in.
♂️ the Greek God Ares was also known for his vengefulness and this could link to those who have aries placements and their irrational behaviour.
♂️ where aries/mars is in your chart shows where you need constant bloodshed, violence or something that gets your adrenaline high. example given someone with aries in the fourth house might like to have a lot of drama going in their home to feel "alive", or people with mars in the fifth house might like to have people fight over them, or like to fight over others. also where aries/mars in your chart shows where there is the most division and disagreement.
♂️ for example, Aries being in the Fourth House could manifest into someone belonging to a family where there is much disagreements, and another example with Mars being in the Fifth House, there could be disagreements with how a certain someone expresses their talents.
TAURUS IN GREEK MYTHOLOGY
♀️ i dont think much people know that the person who represents Taurus in Greek Lore is Aphrodite the Goddess of Beauty. Her Roman Counterpart being Venus and Venus ruling over Taurus in Astrology.
♀️ Aphrodite being known as the Goddess of Beauty and Love, and Taurus being ruled by the planet of Love and Beauty. it is [sometimes] perceived that Aphrodite has asian origin, originally.
♀️ she is seen as the daughter of Zeus, and was created by the foam of Uranus' testicle after he was castrated by the Sky God, Zeus, [son of Kronos], and when she was born she rose from a shell, a shell could be identified as one of Taurus' symbols.
♀️ Aphrodite personifies charm, sensuality and the ideal of feminine beauty. which Venus is looked at as, the venus planet is sometimes looked at as the wife because Aphrodite was married off to Hephaestus, even when she had no interest in him. so Taurus could symbolise being made to do stuff you dont want to do. Aphrodite then went to have an affair with Ares [which birthed Eros known as cupid].
♀️ the story of Aphrodite and Ares along with them being caught my Hephaestus shows that Taurus people can be disloyal but they'll be caught in the end. though Hephaestus wanted Aphrodite along with Ares to be punished but got made fun of by the other Gods; which insinuates that Taurus placements can get away with things.
♀️ the story of Aphrodite and Adonis could symbolise the unfortunate love Taurus placements have as Adonis was killed during a hunting session.
♀️ Hera was a rival of Aphrodite, [Hera = Juno and Juno rules over Libra] which could show why much Taurus and Libras dont get along that much. Hera didnt like Aphrodite because she was elected as the most beautiful against Athena and Hera, due to the Trojan Shepherd, Paris.
♀️ the apple fruit also symbolises Aphrodite/Venus/Taurus. specifically the Golden apple. in movies we see apple being used in Snow White. as Aphrodite is a vain goddess, she symbolises the mirror which symbolises the female sex. [Mars'/Ares' shield represents the male sex].
♀️ wherever Taurus/Venus is in your chart shows where you are most beautiful at, or the most beautiful thing you produce along with the things you get away with. for example, having Taurus in the fifth house could imply you can produce beautiful kids or creative outlets along with getting away with having many love interests. and having Venus in the 3rd house could indicate you might have very beautiful hand writing and you could get away with stealing.
GEMINI IN GREEK MYTHOLOGY
☿️ the God that represents Gemini is Hermes, who is known as the messenger of Gods. known as the God with the wing sandals. and could go anywhere that included the ocean and the underworld; which signifies the adaptability of the Gemini sign.
☿️ Hermes is the son of Zeus and Maia and when Hermes was a child, he ventured the World. which could insinuate those with Gemini placements were able to do stuff quicker than those around them when they were young. when Hermes could barely walk he stole Apollo's Ox farm and when Apollo found out that it was baby Hermes that stole his Ox farm they became best friends, specifically as Hermes grew up.
☿️ it was Hermes that gave Apollo the Lyre and Apollo gave Hermes the caduceus which is perceived to be used for medicine, trading, liars, thieves, eloquence, negotiation, alchemy and vision. with the caduceus, Hermes guided the dead to the underworld, [specifically Hades], and due to this, Hermes became a main God. this could imply that Gemini\3H placements could find it easy to speak with the dead, or with spirits etc. [along with Mercury dominants].
☿️ Hermes guided many people in Greek/Roman stories, like Perseus on his mission to murder Medusa and guided Demeter to Persephone. there are many statues of Hermes; which could signify that people with many Gemini placements could be worshiped and admired a lot.
☿️ Hermes also fought giants, rescued Ares and once freed Zeus which caused him to become one of Zeus' favourite children, alongside with Athena. Also had a child with Aphrodite; Hermes is known to be double natured, as he symbolised the body of the feminine and the masculine along with the characteristics. could indicate that those with Gemini/3h placements could be the favourite child most of the time.
☿️ he had a large vigorous figure which was worshipped along, especially by the athletes of antiquity. was seen as a comical God but people barely wanted to see him angry. especially when Zeus and Hera were about to marry, Hermes' role was to deliver invitations, the lazy Nymph Chelone didnt attend the wedding due to her laziness and Zeus put the blame on Hermes which caused Hermes to turn Chelone into a turtle.
☿️ where gemini/mercury is in your chart could show you where you steal the most; for example those with gemini in the 7th house could steal people's romantic partners. or having mercury in the 2h could indicate that this person stole assets of others before. however it could also show you where you are best at guiding others, so mercury in 2h could guide others with finances and gemini in the 7h could be a really good lawyer. i also see that where gemini/mercury in your chart can tell you how you can get angry, individuals with gemini in the seventh house can get angry when they see injustice, and people with mercury in the second house can get angry when their stuff is being touched or can get angry if anyone messes with their family.
CANCER IN GREEK MYTHOLOGY
☾ as Cancer is ruled by the Moon, and there are many Moon Goddesses in Greek Mythology, the main one is still Selene. the woman who wears the shape of a crescent as a head-dress. and the crescent moon being one of Cancer's symbols.
☾ Selene is the Titan Goddess of the Moon, and has two siblings, Helios and Eos. is the child of Theia and Hyperion. Selene has the power give sleep, light and the night. she also has control over time and like the Moon itself, Selene is ever-changing. suggests the reason why many people think those with Cancer placements are fake.
☾ she fell in love with a mortal shepherd, Endymion and bore his fifty daughters. implies of the fertile nature of Moon dominant people or Cancer dominant people. Selene visited Endymion a lot during the night and fell in love with the human shepherd so much that she couldnt bear the thought of Endymion dying. so without his consent, she put him in an eternal sleep which caused him to remain young. this could imply that Cancer/Moon dominant people are selfish, but majority of the times, their motives aren't bad.
☾ though the spell came with a cost, Endymion was given the choice of when he would die. however, he chose eternal sleep, but he didnt enjoy the youth it granted him. the man was kept in a Cave on Mount Latmus in Caria, Selene proceeded on visiting him every night.
☾ during their nightly encounters, they created Narcissus, the man who was infatuated with his own beauty. Selene was also seduced by the God Pan, who gave her a gift of a White Horse, sometimes it is depicted as a pair of White Oxen.
☾ she also bore several daughters with Zeus.
☾ the woman is known to not have her own temple, as she is seen everywhere as being the Moon.
☾ where cancer/moon is in your chart shows where you could be the most selfish at. along with showing you what thing you could produce countless of times [as Selene is known to be someone who could bear a lot of children; for example, having cancer in the eighth house shows that someone could be the most selfish when it comes to finances or secrets. or they can produce a lot of money and could even have physical pleasure a lot. on the other hand, if someone had moon in the eleventh, indicates that they are selfish when it comes to their friends, could not want to share their friends with other people, on the other hand, could have a lot of friends!
☾ we could also note that where cancer/moon is in your chart is where you're always changing! individuals with cancer in the eighth house can always have emotions that are changing, almost unpredictable, and those with moon in the eleventh might always change friendship groups.
LEO IN GREEK MYTHOLOGY
☼ with Leo being ruled by the Sun, it'll be clear that Greek Lore God that will rule over this sign will be Helios. who is normally woken up by the rooster so he can begin his journey whilst riding a chariot of fire.
☼ he starts his journey from the palace in the east to the western ocean where he sits himself in the ocean. and when it becomes Night he returns to the east with a golden boat made by Hephaestus.
☼ his journey signifies him having a privileged view of the whole world around him, due to the fact of him being informed of everything that happens during the daylight. for example, he witnessed Hades kidnap Persephone and witnessed Aphrodite's affair with Ares.
☼ on the other hand, Helios has been outshined by another Solar Deity known as Apollo. who ended up replacing Helios in many of his own stories. this could indicate that Leo placements can get replaced or outshined.
☼ however, was paid homage by a Scientist who gave one of the elements in the periodic table the name Helium. even though Helios has been upstaged by Apollo; Helios still shines in the Heavens, [the Sun], portraying the strength of the Ancient Titan.
☼ where leo/sun in your chart shows where you know everything about, where you are privileged, what you can be outshined on but where/how you will always be remembered or paid homage. for example, someone with leo in the ninth house could know much about the world, the law and its philosophies, can have privilege of knowledge, but can be outshined by someone who has more information than them. but will still be paid homage by what knowledge they brought to the table. or someone with sun in the second house could know much about money, food, aesthetic and sensuality. can be money privileged, but can be upstaged by someone who could be more sensual or "richer" than them. but will be paid homage due to what kind of style they have shown to the crowds, their sense of fashion etc.
VIRGO IN GREEK MYTHOLOGY
☿️ moving onto Virgo, which is ruled by Ceres in Astrology, [Ceres is the Roman Equivalent to Demeter], Demeter was apart of the first Generation of the Olympian Gods, which this could indicate where you are first at. Demeter was perceived as one of the kindest and benevolent Goddesses beside Hestia.
☿️ the ear of wheat being one of Demeter's symbols, the Goddess was normally worshipped by farmers and has a child known as Pluto who was the God of Abundance; which shows that whatever Virgo creates will give them abundance, which is spoken in the majestic virgo.
☿️ was once chased by Poseidon who wanted to be with her, Demeter then turned herself into a mare to get away from him which caused him to turn himself in a stallion and took possession over the Goddess which created the infamous black horse Arion along with Dysphonia the Goddess of Winter.
☿️ the infamous descendant of Demeter being Persephone, the daughter of her and Zeus and is Demeter's favourite daughter. who then is abducted by Hades which caused Demeter to wander the world searching for her daughter which has then caused her to neglect her task of a Goddess.
☿️ where virgo, ceres and asteroid demeter is  shows what you will neglect when searching for what is yours. could also indicate what kind of people will stop at nothing to get you, and the things you make that can give you abundance.
☿️ example given, having virgo/demeter in the ninth house could imply that you could neglect your studies, or even your morals when it comes to getting what you want. or if your ceres is in the seventh house you could neglect your bond or people you have connections with.
☿️ on one hand, having virgo/demeter in your ninth house could show that a lot of teachers, or people who are supposed to guide you might've harassed you a lot. even foreign people, the law or your in-laws. if you had ceres in your seventh house, even your partners could've harassed you a lot, the general public, open-enemies and so on.
☿️ on the other hand, with virgo/demeter in your ninth house, it could show your sharing your original knowledge, your wisdom can give you much abundance. even screen-writing; having ceres in your seventh house can imply you getting into a relationship could give you abundance, along with creating contracts.
