Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Ancient astrology dealt with the seven planets (‘wanderers’) visible to the naked eye. The awareness of these seven wandering ‘stars’ gave rise to the seven-day week, each day being named after one of the visible planets: Sunday (Sun day), Monday (Moon day), Tuesday (Mars day), Wednesday (Mercury day), Thursday (Jupiter day), Friday (Venus day), and Saturday (Saturn day). The ancients included the Sun and the Moon among the planets because they wandered across the heavens. The Golden Dawn assigned seven of the major arcana cards to the seven visible ‘planets’ of antiquity.
