>>lucifer is the morning star which is venus.However, the astrological interpretation of Venus is rooted in the mythological association with the goddess Venus, who Lucifer is decidedly unlike. Therefore, from an astrologist's point of view, associating Lucifer with Venus is highly inappropriate. It comes, naturally, from mixing the mythology streams of two different religions. Venus was also the morning/even star in Roman religion, but she didn't have any connection with Prometheus, who is the Lucifer figure in Roman religion. So to use that correspondence introduces a number of inconsistencies that make the list useless for practical magick. So I would recommend not using that correspondence as it could lead to serious errors, but it's up to you.
>> the logos is the sunWhy, though? This is a christian rather than hebrew set of correspondence, and the sun (as Tiphareth, the mid-point between the Crown and the Kingdom) is clearly christ, as the mediator between the world and god. I put Pluto (as Da'ath, the secret knowledge) as Logos because logos constitutes the 'secret word' of the christian faith. Also, the Logos is unmanifest, as the black sun of Da'ath is unmanifest, whereas the visible sun is openly manifest, just like christ was an open manifestation of divinity.
>>el means saturn.No it doesn't. 'El' is the cannanite word for 'god' in the general, unqualified sense. This is why almost all hebrew names for god or gods include the particle 'El.'
The reason you may think that is that the hebrews called the gods the cannanites worshiped 'El' as a catch all, because they did not believe in any of them. They saw the cannanites as worshipping evil, or Shaitan, which is why they gave Shaitan the epithet Baal (Ba- father, Al/El, lord; highest lord) because they believed the cannanites worshipped the devil. So, since Saturn, as the last surviving Titan in Roman myth, became associated with both Baal and Satan, as a stand in for all gods who weren't Yahweh. But this is based on a corruption of the actual historical terms by the hebrews and later christians. And, nonetheless, El is still a feature of almost all hebrew god-names, so putting the particle 'El' as one planet is totally inappropriate from a correspondence point of view.
