This is my shrine devoted to Ares the God of War from Greek mythology.

"Ares was the Greek god of war and perhaps the most unpopular of all the Olympian gods because of his quick temper, aggressiveness, and unquenchable thirst for conflict. He famously seduced Aphrodite, unsuccessfully fought with Hercules, and enraged Poseidon by killing his son Halirrhothios. One of the more human Olympian gods, he was a popular subject in Greek art and even more so in Roman times when he took on a much more serious aspect as Mars, the Roman god of war."

-World History Encyclopedia

The only Zodiac Sign related to a god is Ares/Aries which is the Greek God of War - and ruled by the Roman God of War - planet Mars.

Ares was known for his lust for blood, his chaotic nature, and his thoughtless aggression.

Interestingly enough some of these characteristics ( to a much lesser extent) are attributed to those born under Aries, the Ram, in astrology.
