[predefined-counter-styles] Astronomic and astrologic (symbolic/emoji) styles

Crissov has just created a new issue for
https://github.com/w3c/predefined-counter-styles:

== Astronomic and astrologic (symbolic/emoji) styles ==
There are some sequences of symbols from astrology that have a clearly
 defined order and could thus be used as custom counter styles in
certain scenarios.

For some, it’s okay to repeat in cycles:

- `zodiac-signs` U+2648…53 ♈♉♊♋♌♍♎♏♐♑♒♓ (without ophicus ⛎ U+26CE),
possibly with Emoji variation selector ♈️♉️♊️♋️♌️♍️♎️♏️♐️♑️♒️♓️
  * beginning around Northward equinox: ♈♉♊♋♌♍♎♏♐♑♒♓
  * beginning around Northern solstice: ♋♌♍♎♏♐♑♒♓♈♉♊
  * beginning around Southward equinox: ♎♏♐♑♒♓♈♉♊♋♌♍
  * beginning around Southern solstice: ♑♒♓♈♉♊♋♌♍♎♏♐ ≈ `month-symbols`
- `week-days` (see
[Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_the_days_of_the_week#Days_named_after_planets),
 alternative characters for Sun and Moon available)
  * Sunday–Saturday, 0…6:  ☼☾♂☿♃♀♄
  * Monday–Sunday, 1…7:  ☾♂☿♃♀♄☼

Others are fixed and limited to ten markers at most:

- `planets`: 1…8 ☿♀♁♂♃♄♅♆ U+263F … U+2646 (astrologic alternative
symbol for Uranus available at U+26E2)
- `solar-system`: 0…9 ☼☿♀♁♂♃♄♅♆♇ U+263C Sun + `planets` + U+2647 Pluto
