i have a different take on Astro-Christology.  i see Jesus the Messiah as the lam/ram of God or Mars/Aries.  the individual Fire.  the Sun, is not the Son of God. Mars/Aries is the son.  The Sun/Leo is the Father/King and Mars/Aries is the Son/Prince.  

to round out the Trinity, Jupiter/Sagittarius is the Holy Spirit.

this symbolizes God in three persons or points of perspective:  individual, relational, collective. 

to add, there is a tri-disunity of

Man/Gemini/Air.  the individual 'evil' of Mercury/Information - the planet of liars and thieves.  the rationalization of the human mind. or perhaps this is Lucifer.

Satan the tempter is found in Scorpio/Water, the relational evil of Pluto/temptation.  the appeal to the soul/desire of the other.

Devil, the lord of this Earth, the accuser as Saturn/Capricorn/Earth, the collective evil of the law who accuses us before the King of Heaven of violating the Torah, the rule sof the Earth.

to continue, Uranus/Aquarius/All Air is Heaven, Mars/Venus is Adam/Eve Man/Woman (Jesus is called the second Adam, I Am, Ram — see his depiction in Revelation)  Moon is Israel, Sun Yahweh, Neptune is Sophia(?) 

any thoughts on these ideas?

      Hello!

12 labours of Hercules are 12 signes of zodiac. Each labour describes human's weaknesses and main problems to overcome. Hercules is a spiritual being , the inner Self, higher Self of every human, his immortal soul on his way of evolution.

12 labours are also 12 eras that humanity passes to develop its consciousness. We are entering, or we have already entered the age of Aquarius that is represented by labour of cleansing of Augean stables that haven't been cleaned for centuries and cannot be cleaned little by little. Hercules must clean them by night, so he join two big rivers into one torrent and clean every dirt in a second.

Very detailed description of every labour is possible to find here:
