The planets of the planetary group are named after divine beings and goddesses and are known by their Roman, not Greek names. Here I'll place the Greek counterparts in sections a short time later. The satellites of these planets generally will in general be the Greek names related in some structure with the parent body or the god/goddess being referred to. Moons (and significant space rocks) are related to a reference mark. fubar news
Presently you wanted to comprehend that at the hour of the old Roman or Greek pantheon, just eight of the nearby planet group's divine bodies were known. There were the three significant bodies, the Sun, Moon, and Planet Earth itself obviously (subsequently, way in those days, you'd anticipate a legendary connection between these three bodies), and the minor five noticeable planets - Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn which were simply points of light to the people of yore, however it's not shocking the people of old coordinated with divine material science with the characters of their divine beings and named them likewise. Aside from our satellite, the Moon, no different moons were known to the people of old.
Folklore AND THE INNER SOLAR SYSTEM
SOL (Helios) is clearly the lord of the Sun. It shocks me that given the noticeable quality and significance of this divine item, our Sun, that the lord of the Sun didn't invest wholeheartedly of spot as top of the divine beings. In any case, Sol, an original Titan, was brought into the world of the god Hyperion and the goddess Theia, sibling to Luna (Selene) and Aurora or Dawn (Eos). His responsibility is to carry light to men and divine beings the same. He rides in the sky in a blazing chariot pulled by his group of quick ponies. Sol, from his vantage point, sees and hears everything (which ended up being the fixing of an illegal connection between Mars (Ares) and Venus (Aphrodite). The god Apollo later melded as one with Sol's picture however when they were two distinct gods. Sol's child, Phaethon, by the sea sprite Clymene, once attempted to ride his dad's pony drawn chariot, however let completely go and must be killed by Jupiter (Zeus) before the runaway Sun annihilated everything.
VULCAN (Hephaestus) was quite a long time ago really located by cosmologists and as the nearest planet to the Sun, it would obviously be HOT, and accordingly was named after the divinity of fire and blacksmithing. Oh, Vulcan ended up being however legendary as the god it seemed to be named after.
MERCURY (Hermes) when seen from Earth circumvents the Sun speedy shrewd. Along these lines, it was normal to name that body after the fleetest of the divine beings, the courier god who flies through the skies on a winged head protector and winged shoes, Mercury. No incredible secret there.
VENUS (Aphrodite) was, as a result of its divine immaculateness of face and splendor, a female goddess, and obviously THE female goddess was the goddess of adoration. Oh, Venus the planet ended up being more fitting for the Christian leader of the hidden world than the goddess of sentiment. Venus is Hell embodied and subsequently the truth ended up being unfathomably unique in relation to the assumption, however the people of yore couldn't have realized that in those days. Venus (or Aphrodite) had an uncommon birth, the posterity of Gaia, however prepared by the blood/semen of Gaia's child and sweetheart, Uranus, when Uranus was maimed by Saturn (Cronus).
*Neith was the name given to the solitary ghost satellite of Venus. I say apparition since, similar to Vulcan, it was an instance of 'now you see it, presently you don't'. It disappeared from seeing cosmologists across the world, however before that some saw something. That is no problem now. The naming of the satellite Neith parted from custom for Neith was the strange early Egyptian goddess of Sais. She was related to war and hunting and the representation of the early stage waters of creation, however later on down the track she was related with weaving, which is the thing that Neith implies. Intelligence was one of her solid focuses. She had no known male friend, so was known as a 'Virgin Mother Goddess'.
GAEA (Gaia) also called Terra or Earth was one of the first divinities 'conceived' out of the first condition of the universe - Chaos. Given the overall absence of bed accomplices around then, at that point, she mated with all accessible guys, including her agamically made youngsters, similar to Uranus.
*Luna (Selene) was brought into the world of the god Hyperion and the goddess Theia, sister to Sol (Helios) and Aurora or Dawn (Eos). Luna crosses the night sky on a chariot pulled by two white ponies. Likewise with Sol and Apollo, the Roman goddess Diana (Artemis) is frequently connected with, and has merged with Luna (as the bow formed Moon) as has the goddess of the hidden world, Hecate (as the New Moon). Luna stays as the Full Moon in the night sky.
