The Mythical representation of the ruling planets
Saturn represents earth and animal instincts.
The beast who is Lucifer, whose name means the light.
Uranus represents perfection and beauty
Uranus units with his wife or mother Gaia and they have children which Uranus does not find pleasing as in his eyes they are not perfect. He hides them away in the under world where no one can see. Uranus does not get away with this ,as Saturn cuts off his genitals and throws them into the sea only for life to spring from his seed, and it is from here that Aphrodite is born who contains both the senses from Prometheus and beauty and perfection from Uranus. One is earth while the other is air.
Uranus also connects with Erinyes who were born out of his suffering. The Erinyes must receive retribution for the suffering of family and will not allow family blood to be tarnished or hurt in any way. This is the price that Uranus has to pay.
The Erinyes are the Goddesses of vengeance.

Prometheus a titan who steals fire from the gods. And is very much concerned with raising awareness in man kind, so that man can become aware of all that is around him.. Prometheus is the God for mankind who wants to reform so that man has a link with his higher self
Oldest myth of Prometheus is that he made man out of clay, and Athena breathes life into it.
This also represents Adam and Eve and the tree of knowledge.
Prometheus had a brother called Epimertheus whose name means learning through experience.
Prometheus was present at the birth of Athena who was born from the head of Zeus.
Athena teaches Prometheus since he was present at her birth she has great respect for him, and she taught him, architecture; astronomy; mathematics; navigation; medicine. All these gifts he gave to man. He is the social worker of the cosmos.
Zeus and Prometheus are from the same seed, they need, and understand one another. Zeus needs Prometheus because of his sight and Prometheus need Zeus to upgrade humanity.
This unity provides some insight into the Aquarius turbulent relationship with in them selves. One part relates to the spirit, and the other to the world, air and earth.
Zeus king of the gods wanted to destroy mankind but Prometheus intervened and Zeus gave in and so Prometheus taught mankind all that he could. Zeus became jealous and does not want man to bring into consciousness parts of himself he feels should remain in the unconscious, and so hold back the development of the spirit. Zeus in a way hurts himself through the punishment of Prometheus because the liver is ruled by Jupiter. So why can he not except, and be conscious of all his energies, may-be there are parts to him self that he does not wish to see himself
Zeus makes Prometheus pay for stealing fire from the gods for mankind and hangs him to a tree as punishment while a vulture eats away at his liver at night only to have a full recovered by day so that the same old ritual takes place time and again and there seems to be no escape. Hercules pleads with Zeus to free him. Chiron pays the price so that the underworld isn’t robed of there delight and Chiron takes his place, and spends 6 months in the under world and 6 on earth While Zeus still desires a link to Prometheus so that he doesn’t appear to have given in, so he orders Prometheus to wear a ring from the chains that bound him in honor of Zeus.
His brother is afraid and so marries Pandora, Prometheus has given his brother a gift which is not to be opened, but his wife opens this and it contained all the woes of the world, so cause tremendous negatives attributes that are in our atmosphere however the last energy which was also contained with Pandora’s box was hope. And it is just this quality that is being used to day in the Aquarian age.
The psychology of the Aquarius is such that they wish to reach new frontiers in social orders in life. And also reach to the gods for the knowledge to re-awaken mankind, but before they can do this they need to reach into there own psychic and bring to conscious view to all that they have in conscious way to become an individual.
