The 7 planets of the Ancients

Workshop in Wageningen.

From the earliest records of Human history can be seen that humans have always been intrigued and dependent upon the Sun, Moon, stars and the other planets in our solar system. Although for navigation we are now depending on man-made satellites we are still influenced by what we call 'the 7 planets of the Ancients' on a day to day basis.

Have you wondered why the 7 celestial bodies, which we can perceive from the Earth's surface by the naked eye, carry the names of Ancient Gods?

Why are the names of the 7 days of our week connected to the same Gods: the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn?

When our structure of daily life here on planet Earth is based upon the same influences as the closest neighbour planets, how else do they relate to us as human beings?
