For a greater understanding of astrology one has to consider the uncanny parallel between the gods of classical mythology and the planet-rulers of the astrological signs. Studying these tales confirms that mythology was intended for more than communicating and illustrating the details of an ancient religion or for simple entertainment. The stories of the Classical gods contain both astronomical and astrological information embedded in a narrative where each god is a metaphor for the influence of a planet, and Mount Olympus is a metaphor for our solar system.
Daily Planet Astrology offers insight into AstroMythology, which is the study of the interplay of astronomy, astrology, and myth. This study reveals that classical mythology was, in part, designed to convey astronomical and astrological information to all the generations who watch the sky. Its study can give you a deeper understanding of the influences that affect your life.
