In Western alchemy, the seven old planets of astrology were assigned to seven metals:

Copper - Venus
Iron - Mars
Tin - Jupiter
Lead - Saturn
Mercury (Quicksilver) - Mercury
Silver - Moon
Gold - Sun

Do any of these planetary attributions and the respective planetary meanings correspond to the planetary attributions or the traditional meanings of these metals in metal lore?

Thanks!

Well I am a Leo, which is ruled by the sun, and I have read that leos should wear a lot of gold because of the fact that the sun corrilates with Leo and Gold.
