Ezekiel 8:14 'Tammuz' is the Syrian/Samaritan savior/fertility/sun god who annually died and was resurrected.[1,p.138]
Ezekiel 10 Ezekial is describing a zodiac. The four "cherubim," the man, ox, lion, and eagle, represent the cardinal points and four elements: Aquarius (air), Taurus (earth), Leo (fire), and Scorpio (water). Ezekiel's four-faced creature composed of eagle, lion, bull, and man, was copied from the fabulous composite beasts of Assyria, who represented the four seasons of the year.[1,.p139;2,p.401]

"In astrology, Leo is a lion, Taurus is a bull/calf, Aquarius is a man pouring water and Scorpio has three symbols, one a scorpion, one an eagle and one a serpent. These four cardinal signs are also the basis for Ezekiel's description of the four faces in Ezekiel 1:10 which also mentions a LION, MAN, OX and EAGLE." - http://web.archive.org/web/20030214154545/http://www.knowledgefirst.org/freedom/jesus.htm
