I don't like it.  No known source for this story is a problem.

Terms like Gaia, Cancer, Leo, Pisces, Age of Aquarius... seem strange to me.
Gaia for instance is the wife of Uranus.  This implies grandmother of Zeus.

However, in Timaeus, Plato follows the Orphic Tradition of Oceanus in between Uranus and Saturn.  So how does the Great-Grandmother of Zeus wind up in this story?

"By 2,000 BC, the Egyptians and Mesopotamians marked the seasons by the constellations we NOW call Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius."
