There’s a parallelism between the classical geocentric cosmos and the following essentials of life chemistry: the electron octet, the bio-elements, the amino acids, and the genetic code. The introduction contains a short summary of the chemistry of life and the classical geocentric cosmology. The research method compares the classical geocentric cosmos to the investigated essentials of life chemistry. The Earth-Sun (substrate-source of life) opposite and the inner-outer planet opposites correspond to several of these essentials. The twelve zodiac constellations correspond to the twelve macro bio-elements, the twelve polar amino acids and the twelve by doublet codons encoded amino acids. Each of the latter three zodiac chemical representatives shows the typical seven to five ratio of the twelve zodiac constellations: seven animal and five human related constellations. An original genetic code table based on third position synonyms shows the similarities and differences between the vertebrate mitochondrial and the standard genetic codes, and the parallelism with the classical geocentric cosmos. Specific zodiac constellation representatives for the life chemistry essentials are presented.
