Possibly, but the Crest of Hope is literally a shooting star, and as I see the Digieggs as precursors to the Human-Beast Spirits of Frontier, I like to think that they draw on their Guardian partner's essence. In this case, Seraphimon. Seraphimon is a celestial being.then maybe the Hope armors aren't constellations and are just mythological field animals?
The naming convention of "Sagittarimon" makes me think were aiming for constellations. But anyone's guess is as good as any. I will note, however that Pegasusmon has an attack akin to the Bronze Pegasus armor of Saint Seiya. They also happen to have a Bronze Armor for Rangifer Tarandus.
Fair point, though I wished they could've used a different constellation as Moosemon seems to be the odd one out (take note that there is atleast one evolution that doesn't follow the motif for their respective digi-egg).Correct me if I'm wrong, but Moosemon may also be based on a constellation, albeit one not currently included with the modern list.
That's fair, but note also the celestial themes, as well as the naming convention for Veemon with the Digiegg of Hope as Sagittarimon.
Goatmon = Capricorn
Sagittarimon = Sagittarius
Sheepmon = Aries
Pegasusmon = Pegasus
Bullmon = Taurus
Moosemon is the only one who presents a dilemma here, though I will note that stretching the imagery a bit would allow for it to be understood as a stag/deer, wherein the obsolete constellation of Rangifer is applicable. Curiously, the entry on Moosemon pertains to snow and the mountains, a theme which corresponds to the constellation of Pegasus/Orion as winter constellations.
A previous poster also noted that the Hope armors are hooved animals, so either Camelopardalis or Equuleus, perhaps? Maybe Centaurus or Monoceros, but Centalmon, Unimon and ShimaUnimon already exists. Maybe Auriga, but that's a stretch, as Hawkmon's armors sometimes lead into humanoid forms (Rinkmon, Shurimon, and Harpymon), and Auriga is a charioteer, which usually uses horses to pull the chariot. Maybe turn it into something resembling Zanbamon, I guess.
It's a difficult one I admit. Cameloleopardus did cross my mind, especially the markings, but Rangifer Tarandus works quite well. Obscure, yes, but so is Pegasus. Orionmon or Andromedamon would be the odd ones out given his humanoid armor tendencies.
