Wolf Terms

The constellation Lupus (Wolf) is situated between Centaurus and Hydra. The Centaur was generally assumed to be sacrificing the wolf on the altar (Ara). In the annual cycle, Lupus spanned from Libra (cf. Equinox) to the Lupercalia, 15 February: turning away of the wolf. Ptolemy associated the bright stars of Lupus with Saturn. Saturn rules over Capricorn and Aquarius. Quoted from: http://www.dibonsmith.com/lup_con.htm
