Joachim Quack provides a great guide to the planets here:
One of the ideas that I’m investigating at the moment is that Mercury is associated with Thoth and as such it may be we are looking for the house of Mercury instead of the house of the moon.
One of the ideas I have looked at is a linkage to right ascension (RA). The offerings of 1,000 loaves of bread have always had me curious. Wondering if this could be minutes of RA I divided by 60 and got 16hrs 40 mins. Curiously, Mercury on the date I have proposed is sitting at 16 hours 22 mins and appears to reach a maximum of 16 hrs 42 mins over its cycle.
Along these lines I wondered if the 4 cubits of water that Djedi promises to Khufu could be a reference to RA and found that Cancer sits right on the 4 hr line. The centre of Hydra is roughly v Hya which sits at 6 hrs 52 mins and the large crocodile is described as of 7 cubits.
