We have come to the conclusion of Homer's Iliad, and found it to be an excellent astrological primer. Most of the themes which were true three thousand years ago are still viable today. Homer arranged his work to match the seasons; linking Chapters I through XII to the twelve signs of the zodiac, and then repeating the entire process, such that Chapter II deals with Taurus, and Chapter XIV (two plus twelve) deals with Taurus again.
In Chapter V, Homer has us "...think of a lion...", while in Chapter XVII there are more references to the hearts and lions than in any other book. Yes, Leo rules lions and the heart. In Chapter VI the craft of Virgo emerges as women embroider, weave, carry water and engage Hektor, while in Chapter XVIII there are numerous references to the harvest in the scene depicted on the shield of Akhilleus. In Chapter VII, Hektor halts the battle and then personally challenges Aias, and the troops watch as the two are evenly matched and break off the fight at sundown. In Chapter XIX, Akhilleus and Agamemnon make peace between each other, mending the rift of Ch. I (martial Aries). In Chapter VIII, Zeus threatens any who oppose him as "...he will be flung out of Olympus into the murk of Tartaros that lies deep down in the underworld", while in Chapter XX, Hades fears that his graves will be ripped open, "...and the vile moldy kennels the gods hate might stand revealed to mortals and immortals..." In Chapter IX, our Sagittarian religious zeal emerges as Diomedes tells us that the Greeks "...came here under god," and in Chapter XXI the children of Zeus (Jupiter and the sky) are given heightened prominence.
Except for the ever-present battle, the personalities of the twelve are the same as they ever were, with the vacillations of Gemini, the passions of Scorpio, and the calamities of Capricorn.
