List the main Planets
in order with a keyword
Traditional Astrology recognises 7 planets, including the Sun and Moon (but not the Earth).
Here are the planets in the order of the days of the week, which are named after them:
The names of the days still celebrate their ancient guardians, which were identified with the planetary lords and ladies: Sunday, ruled by the Sun; Monday, ruled by the Moon, Tuesday ruled by Mars (Tiw, the ancient saxon god of war was equivalent to Mars in the Roman Pantheon, mardi in French and similarly in other latin-derived tongues); Wednesday (Woden's day, the saxon Mercury, mercredi in French); Thursday (Thor's day, the king of the gods, equivalent to Jupiter, jeudi in French) and Friday, Freya's, or Frigga's day (the saxon Venus, French vendredi) and Saturday, ruled by Saturn.
Inner self; ego
Emotional personality; habits
The other traditional order of the planets is called the Chaldean order, because it was the way that the Chaldeans (Babylonians), the first astrologers, ordered the planets according to the geocentric system.
The ancient schema of the cosmos as set out by Ptolemy is:
- the Earth (comprised of the 4
- the sublunary sphere
- the sphere of the Moon
- the sphere of Mercury
- the sphere of Venus
- the sphere of the Sun
- the sphere of Mars
- the sphere of Jupiter
- the sphere of Saturn
- the sphere of the Fixed
- the sphere of the Primum Mobile
The Music of the Spheres is the sound made by these concentric, cosmic spheres as they vibrated in their eternal motion.
