There was a wise man that I once spoke to. He offered a theory, or a suspicion, that the planets are more than meets the eye. That each volcano is a
portal, an access point. That on another level of frequency, the Sun oscillates with more than just a vast array of woven plasmas, hydrogen and
helium, that if we could see this frequency we could possibly see life on the Sun, or perhaps, one strong entity. With that he explained that he was
always interested in other dimensions, not just of the physical, but of the mental too. If we could fixate on this frequency, the planet's would come
to life, but alas, we cannot, and remain our guardians.
Perhaps alignments mean much more he would often say. If you were to use a tool like Solar System
we see that alignments mean much more than they simply sound. If you take Pluto with your mouse, (on the above site), and you spin it once
around the solar system, you'd end up more than 200 years into the past or future depending on whether you spin it along it's path CW or CCW. The
further inward you go, the time is different for each celestial body, which goes to show simply, that certain alignments are in the making several of
years. Are these alignments meaningless? We don't know.
Repeatedly throughout history, many ancient cultures would make continuous references to the heavenly bodies, as a comparison for strong humans that
they sought similar to each heavenly giant. We hear the word, the "son" a lot. Many cultures would give the planets almost a lively title or
In Greek/Roman, the names would translate as so, a difference from our current portrayal:
The Sun - Helios
Helios was the personification of the Sun in Greek mythology. Imagined as a handsome god crowned with the shining aureole of the Sun, who drove the
chariot of the sun across the sky each day to earth-circling Oceanus and through the world-ocean returned to the East at night.
Saturn - Cronus
Saturn represents the father of Zeus, Cronus. 8 moons surrounding Saturn are named after various Titans, Gods, Goddesses, and other important figures
in Greek mythology. They are: Atlas, Calypso, Dione, Enceladus, Epimetheus, Helene, Hyperion, Iapetus, Janus, Mimas, Pan, Pandora, Phoebe, Prometheus,
Rhea, Telesto, Tethys, and Titan.
Said to the God of Agriculture, the title would fit seeing the ring of rocks surrounding it's gaseous sphere. A crucial piece to the workshop of our
solar system, so to speak.
Uranus - Ouranos
Uranus was the primal Greek god personifying the sky. His equivalent in Roman mythology was Caelus. In Ancient Greek literature, according to Hesiod
in his Theogony, Uranus or Father Sky was the son and husband of Gaia, Mother Earth. Uranus and Gaia were ancestors of most of the Greek gods
Said to be Father Sky, the colours paint a beautiful pale blue sky at a glance.
Neptune - Poseidon
Neptune the god of the sea, and, as "Earth-Shaker", of the earthquakes in Greek mythology. The name of the sea-god Nethuns in Etruscan was adopted
in Latin for Neptune in Roman mythology
Being as blue as the sea, the title sure fits.
Jupiter - Zeus
Jupiter represents the ruler of the gods, Zeus. The planet is the largest and most magnificent which is representative of the great Zeus. Jupiter has
16 moons. The 4 largest are named after some of Zeus' affairs, Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. The other 12 moons represent more of Zeus'
Mercury - Hermes
Mercury is the great messenger of the gods in Greek mythology and a guide to the Underworld. He is also the patron of boundaries and of the travelers
who cross them, of shepherds and cowherds, of the cunning of thieves
The title fits, as we see Mercury, as quick-paced as Hermes is, like a thief in the night, making his swift course around the Sun.
Venus - Aphrodite
Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. Venus is known as the most beautiful planet in the solar system, thus it's
named after the goddess of beauty. Daughter of Zeus, at a glance of colour, Venus appears as a smaller Jupiter.
Mars - Ares
Mars is the Greek god of war. He is one of the Twelve Olympians, and the son of Zeus and Hera. In Greek literature, he often represents the physical
or violent aspect of war.
Being the god of war, the array of violent destruction shown by it's vast craters and 'chaos' regions certainly fits such a title.
Pluto - Hades
Hades was a name for the ruler of the underworld; the god was also known as Hades, a name for the underworld itself.
Being the furthest in cold darkenss, the title fits.
