Phoebus (Apollo) the shapely Gemini;
You, Cyllenius (Hermes), over Cancer;
And Jupiter (Zeus), you yourself rule Leo with the Mother of the Gods;
Virgo who bears ears of grain belongs to Ceres (Demeter);
And the forged scales to Vulcan (Hephaestus);
Quarrelsome Scorpio clings to Mars (Aries);
Diana (Artemis) cherishes the hunting man part horse (Sagittarius);
And Vesta (Hestia) the contracted stars of Capricorn;
Opposite Jupiter is Aquarius, the star of Juno (Hera);
And Neptune (Poseidon) acknowledges his own Pisces in the upper air.”
