As the King of the gods, Zeus‘ connection with Leo is appropriate as it is the "king of the Zodiac signs". The connection gains a lot more weight in mythology: Zeus is closely associated with Helios, perhaps even more so than Apollo, as Helios is referred as "the eye of Zeus" and is referred as Zeus in his own Orphic hymn. Aether (the primordial light that illumines the Heavens) is "Zeus' power", and his role as the god of civilization, justice and law is very similar to that of sun gods like Shamash and Ra (Apollo also shares these traits, as he too is a god of justice and law). Zeus is outright referred as the Sun in some particular Greco-roman religious traditions like Pythagorean philosophy, where he is the supramundane Sun of the Olympians.As the Sun symbolizes the center, so is Leo's position in the Zodiac indicative.

Scorpio is the second Mars sign, and the one that most relates to Ares: while the fiery aspects of Aries might relate to him to some extent, it’s the more emotional Scorpio that resonates closer to him and his primal nature. As the later Autumn sign, Scorpio is related to Winter’s start, and thus to sunset-like conditions: as the Sun dims, so does life. Scorpio is defined by it’s loyalty bordering on possessiveness, as well as a rather strong impulsive nature but consciously made subtle or even outright hidden. Ares displays a surprising amount of loyalty to his family, even when most of Olympus doesn’t like him very much, and while numerous, his affairs are occult, unlike Zeus’ or Apollo’s. This reflects water as darkness: driven by strong impulses, but with the element of mystery and hidden nature. Due to Scorpio’s vindictiveness and hidden nature, it is often considered the most malign of the signs, just as Ares is the most distrusted of the Olympians, but neither are “evil” and while unpleasant they are necessary for the inner workings of nature. Darkness is after all important to health in it’s Melatonin friendliness, especially when it’s connected to water.

Hephaestus‘ correspondence with Libra is derived from his role as the smith god. By crafting fire, he made the weapons that the gods use to impose justice, down to the scales of Dike, the goddess of justice, often thought to be the woman depicted in the sign. As just, Hephaestus is a god of innovation, taming the chaos of the flames to produce items to impose civilization.

This is the 5 Pound Commemorative Coin for the Coronation of Charles III, struck by The Royal Mint in Brilliant Uncirculated quality. This keepsake comes in a representative collector's box with all official accessories. In it you will find all numismatic details and all kinds of interesting information about the coronation of King Charles III. On obverse you will see the portrait of the king surrounded by the text "F · D · 5 POUNDS ·2023 · CHARLES III · D · G · REX". The king wears the Tudor crown - which was destroyed around 1640, but still occasionally appears on effigies of British monarchs. The reverse shows some of the royal regalia traditionally associated with the coronation ceremony. In the centre is St Edward's crown, traditionally used to crown English and British monarchs since the 13th century. Next to the crown are the sovereign's sceptres. On the left, the sovereign's sceptre with cross, representing the sovereign's temporal power. On the right, the sovereign's sceptre with dove: the dove symbolises the Holy Spirit and the king's spiritual role as head of the Anglican Church. Along the top edge is the text "THE CORORNATION OF KING CHARLES III" with the date on which the coronation will take place "6 MAY 2023" underneath. The death of Queen Elizabeth II caused a stir in the UK and abroad. She was on the throne for over 70 years, making her one of the longest-serving monarchs ever. Following her death, 73-year-old Charles III became king of the UK with immediate effect. On Saturday 6 May 2023, official coronation ceremonies will take place at Westminster Abbey, where all coronations since 1066 have been performed. It is traditional in England to have a longer period of mourning after the death of a monarch, leading to the coronation of the heir to the throne not taking place until several months later.
