Re: Naphtali

Could the reference to Naphtali--and his importance--relate to 
astrological data? I.e., he was born such and such a time, etc. The Book 
of Jubilees has his birth data.

"And Jacob went in again unto Bilhah a second time, and she conceived, and
bare Jacob another son, and Rachel called his name Napthali, on the fifth
of the seventh month, in the 20 second year of the fourth week." 
(Charles, trns., _Jubilees_)
