From Hebrew wikt:מזל, from Akkadian 𒌓𒁕
(Weddish) IPA: /'ma.zl/
מַזֶל (mazel) - masculine
- star, constellation
- Sun, Venus, Mercury, the Moon, Saturn, Jupiter, or Mars
- Zodiac constellation
- fate, fortune (pejorative)
More than a class of objects in the sky, this is an attitude about them. When technically or superstitiously, most heavenly phenomena are מזל.
