If you were to color align the twelve green zodiacs, where would you put them?

Preferred Pronoun Set: he/him
Greek Zodiac?
Aries, The Ram - There are a lot of myths related to this. It saved some people and then its skin "The golden fleece" was a mcguffin that denoted kingship. I would put this in R or RW but I don't have a strong reason.
Taurus, The Bull - I don't have much info here. I would put it in R because it's a bull?
Gemini, The Twins - This can be about the subconscious or a dual nature. Twins makes me think clone which is U maybe G. UGB are the colors most likely to have a dual nature. I guess I would put this at UG.
Cancer, The Crab - This is tied to Poseidon and the Ocean. U.
Leo, The Lion - The Nemean Lion is tied to indestructibility. This is W or GW.
Virgo, The Maiden - This is tied to harvesting wheat. G or GW.
Libra, The Scales - Divine law is W
Scorpio, The Scorpion - This has loose ties to snake, eagle, phoenix, Artemis. B or BG
Sagittarius, The Centaur Archer - This has some loose ties to prophecy. Both centaurs and archers are heavily putting this in G.
Capricorn, Aquatic Goat - This has ties to Enki, a god of Wisdom and creation. Both Aquatic and wisdom make this U.
Aquarius, The Water-Bearer - This young boy was kidnapped by Zeus to serve as his "Cup Bearer". UR because water and passion?
Pisces, The Fish - This has some ties to Aphrodite and the concept of two things being bound together. U or UR.

I would have thought the color would be based on the meaning of the sign rather than the origin of the constellation's name.

For example, Aries are considered impulsive, assertive, initiative-taking, so red.

Going quickly:

Taurus is about comfort, emotional and material, green.
Gemini are social, flighty, communicative, blue-red.
Cancer are nurturing, sensitive, green-white.
Leo is about leadership and idealism, red-white.
Libra is fair, thoughtful, polite, white-blue.
Virgo is detailed-oriented, practical, helpful, white.
Scorpio are passionate, secretive, dramatic, black-red.
Sagittarius is adventurous, curious, optimistic, green-blue.
Capricorn is traditional, ambitious, hard-working, black-green.
Aquarius is idealistic, individualistic, future-oriented, blue-red.
Pisces is romantic, dreamy, compassionate, red-white.

I would have liked to have not repeated, but I feel like Gemini and Aquarius both fit blue-red, just differently. I guess you could do the scheming, duplicitous interpretation of Gemini and do blue-black. Pisces, I am maybe least sure of, but it's relying on the emotional sensitivity of red and white.
