These symbols represent the seven classical planets of antiquity, otherwise known as the seven planets of the ancients. The origin of the word 'planet' is 'wanderer' in Ancient Greek, and thus includes those stellar objects that were observed to be moving in the night sky. They comprise the Sun and Moon and the five planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. These seven bodies are also each associated with a particular day of the week:
- Sun -- Sunday
- Moon -- Monday
- Mars -- Tuesday
- Mercury -- Wednesday
- Jupiter -- Thursday
- Venus -- Friday
- Saturn -- Saturday
The symbols are of our own transcribing, accurately depicting the ancient symbols of Astrology.
