** Perseus and Hercules each got one constellation commemorating their exploits.
** Leo is the Nemean Lion.
** Cancer is Karkinous, the crab Hera sent to attack Hercules while he was battling the Lernean Hydra.
** Canis Major and Minor are a hound and vixen- the hound was fated to always catch his prey, the vixen, to never be caught. Turning them into constellations was the only way out of the LogicBomb.
** Aquarius is Ganymede, Zeus'... cupbearer, among other things. Hera was so not amused by Zeus giving him the job (which was filled by their daughter Hebe beforehand) that Zeus had to turn Ganymede into a constellation to keep him safe.


This is OlderThanFeudalism. This trope exists because of the logic of its SuperTrope, HeavenAbove, where anything skyward is associated with everything divine.

DiedHappilyEverAfter.

Added DiffLines:

* SubvertedTrope in ''Literature/TheDivineComedy''; upon ascending into Heaven, it seems as if every human soul ascends to a different Heavenly body, whether it be a star or one of the planets. Our hero finds it odd that somehow the pagan philosophers were right about this, but God's messenger, Beatrice, explains that the souls only appear on different stars and planets to help our hero understand the distinctions between types of saints.

Added DiffLines:

* Inverted in [[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia Narnia]], where every star is a divine being that must live out a lifetime as a mortal when it goes out. In ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader'', the heroes encounter two stars: one who has been banished from the heavens for an [[TheseAreThingsmanWasNotMeantToKnow undisclosed reason]] and now lives as a mortal magician, and one who lives with his daughter on an island near the [[FlatWorld edge of the world]] and [[MakesAsMuchSenseInContext is brought a fire berry by a flock of birds every morning]] to replenish his energy before returning to the sky.
