In terms, astro-theology (TR:5) (LH:7) (TL:12), aka “stellar theology” (Sayce, 1903) or "astronomical mythology" (Massey, 1907), is a theology based on star movements, star constellations defined as gods, the sun moving though the zodiac, moon changing phase, and the five visible planets defined as gods.

Quotes

The following are quotes:

“But there was yet a further parallelism between the stellar theology of Egypt and that of Babylonia. In both countries the worship of the stars passed into an ‘astro-theology’. The official gods were identified with the planets and fixed stars, and the stellar cult of the people was thus absorbed into the state religion.”
Archibald Sayce (1903), The Religions of Ancient Egypt and Babylonia (pgs. 237-38)[1]
