Edda poem Grímnismál, interpreted by the Icelander Einar Pálsson as the zodiac – funnily irritated the (–jealous–) Icelandic scholars to the extent that they refused to have him give a lecture in “their” university.

Einar discovered a lot more, both in Eddas and Sagas, to the even greater annoyance of the scholars, who saw not what Einar saw.
