 hydra
Allen cites another definition of the sky Hydra as the winding course of the moon: "For an unknown period its winding course symbolized that of the moon; hence the latter's nodes are called the Dragon's Head and Tail" (1963 [1899], 249).
Finally, and for our constellation, most importantly, she is the mother of the Lernaean Hydra, the Hydra of Lerna, who, by the time of the Greeks, had become of monstrous multi-headed monster whom Heracles (Hercules) killed.
Hydra is another constellation having to do with snakes, for the Hydra itself or herself is a water snake, and Hydra is the feminine form of the word (Hydrus the masculine form).

If she is retained in the Greek versions of Echidna and the Lernean Hydra at all, she has been completely vilified so that the poisonous aspect of her has been exaggerated beyond all proportion, for the Lernea Hydra of the Greeks became an evil, killing monster, and that was all.

Hydra is another constellation having to do with snakes, for the Hydra itself or herself is a water snake, and Hydra is the feminine form of the word (Hydrus the masculine form).
Hydra represented important cosmic beliefs of ancient peoples, having to do with the forces of creation -- the great chaos or deep or waters which existed prior to creation, and out of which creation was formed, often in female form.

 Cancer (constellation) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As the constellation vaguely resembles a crab, it may, together with the Hydra constellation, form the basis of the myth of the Lernaean Hydra, one of The Twelve Labours of Herakles, with which it is associated.
It is the domicile of the Moon or "House of the Moon", and this concept might originate from an ancient belief that Moon was located here at the creation of the world.
Cancer is also the exaltation of Jupiter, and the traditional astrology claims it is the triplicity of Mars, one of the three lesser dignities which the modern astrology does not recognize.

Galcian ================== Valua finest, Galcian is one of the best fighters in the world and he owns one of the most ambitious projects of Valua: the Hydra.
Therefore, you are going to find him several times during your adventure(because you have the moon crystals and he _needs_ those moon crystals) and also fight him a couple of times.
Be sure, however, you avoid Galcian at all costs, or else he'll take you to hell and return before you can even blink.

 Cancer
Cancer, the Crab, which lives on the shore of the ocean, is ruled by the waxing and waning moon, which was thought to be in Cancer at the time of the Creation.
It is the most inconspicuous figure in the zodiac, and mythology apologizes for its being there by the story that when the Crab was crushed by Hercules, for pinching his toes during his contest with the Hydra in the marsh of Lerna, Juno exalted it to the sky.
In astrology, with Scorpio and Pisces, Cancer is the Watery Trigon; the House of the Moon, from the early belief that this luminary was located here at the creation; and the Horoscope of the World, as being, of all the signs, nearest to the zenith.

 The Cult of Mithras
First, every figure found in the standard tauroctony has a parallel among a group of constellations located along a continuous band in the sky: the bull is paralleled by Taurus, the dog by Canis Minor, the snake by Hydra, the raven by Corvus, and the scorpion by Scorpio.
Second, Mithraic iconography in general is pervaded by explicit astronomical imagery: the zodiac, planets, sun, moon, and stars are often portrayed in Mithraic art; in addition, numerous ancient authors speak about astronomical subjects in connection with Mithraism.
"During...the 'Age of Taurus,' lasting from around 4,000 to 2,000 B.C., the celestial equator passed through Taurus the Bull (the spring equinox of that epoch), Canis Minor the Dog, Hydra the Snake, Corvus the Raven, and Scorpio the Scorpion (the autumn equinox): that is, precisely the constellations represented in the Mithraic tauroctony."

 Hydralisk - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the second night elves mission, "Daughters of the Moon", the Hydralisk is hidden in the forest north of the final undead camp.
In-game, the hydralisk is a ranged ground soldier of the Zerg race, attacking with projectile needle spines fired from underneath its head plates, capable of piercing two centimeters of neosteel.
Employing Overlords to drop Hydralisks around an opponent's mineral gathering points will significantly delay him or her, especially in the early stages of game when minerals are most scarce and most necessary.

Interestingly, Agent Abigail Brand, the S.W.O.R.D. agent the X-Men encountered, has green hair, a trait typical of agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s archenemy, HYDRA.
Also depicted by Marvel as affiliated with the U.N., Starcore has worked with S.H.I.E.L.D. on several projects of joint interest, including establishing and maintaining a crewed facility on Earth's Moon.
This unusual characteristic did not go unremarked; Wolverine referred to her as "Hydra-Hair" in Astonishing X-Men v3 #6.

Bar-Sav/Perseus is armed with a sickle-shaped (like a crescent Moon) scimitar, a potent weapon against the powers of darkness, and it is this weapon that the hero uses in his fight with the Sea-Monster Cetus, a representation of the Babylonian Tiamat, primal monster of chaos.
Its head starting beneath Crab and its body stretching all the way under the Lion, the Virgin and most of the Scales, lies the great Water-Snake Hydra: this was Sumero-Akkadian Tsir-gal, Babylonian-Assyrian Tsiru-gallu, Phoeni-cian Nakhasch-maim, the Snake or Great Snake.
An archaic Akkadian hymn speaks of "the monstrous snake" that "bears the yoke on its seven heads...the strong serpent of the sea," one of the sinister brood of the primordial monster Tiamat.

It is very heavily armed with 6 heavy cannons, 12 secondary cannons, 14 tertiary cannons, and a large "Hydra Cannon", similar to the Delphinus's Moon Stone Cannon.
It is also armed with three deck-mounted heavy cannons, one of which may be a Valuan Magic Cannon, and ten subcannons mounted on the sides of the ship.
Given that its structure resembles that of a World War I-era battleship, while Delphinus more closely resembles World War II vessels, and a scale model of a Spectre-class ship is found in the captain's cabin of the Delphinus, it is most likely the immediate forerunner of Delphinus.

 Signs & Constellations of the Zodiac
The zodiac is the section of the sky in which we find the Sun, Moon and the planets.
Given that the zodiac extends eight degrees north and south of the ecliptic, an additional twelve constellations reside in part within the zodiac's belt of stars: Auriga, Canis Minor, Cetus, Corvus, Crater, Hydra, Ophiuchus, Orion, Pegasus, Scutum, Serpens and Sextans.
While signs neatly extend eight degrees north and south of the ecliptic, aligning with the borders of the zodiac, constellations do no such thing.

Pallas leaves Cetus (where it was able to conjunct Moon in Cetus) for Eridanus and NEAT, heading towards it's doom in Al Nitak or CINGVLA ORIONUS.
While 2004 DW may hold extrazodiacal positions (kind of tricky to check out), it nevertheless perfectly occupies _zodiacal_ constellations, such as Hydra, Sextans, Crater, Corvus, Orion, Aquila, to mention some.
Crater was and will be such a constellation and it is interesting to note Aries can rise in due east roughly in times when Crater does so.
