Astronomical symbols/glyphs representing the Sun, Moon, Pluto and planets, along with the Earth, in Western astrology.This table shows the planets of the solar system and the Greek and Roman deities associated with them. In most cases, the English name for planets derives from the name of a Roman god or goddess. Also of interest is the conflation of the Roman god with a similar Greek god. In some cases, it's the same deity with two different names.
