Corvidus, I have never heard of a planet being responsible for teaching, or practicong (practicing) certain philosophies.
I do believe you mean each planet is said to have certain correspondences, and attributes, in esoteric lore.
When I read your post, I could not help thinking of some deity, looking at a list, with all the planets in front of him/her :
"Okay, Mercury, you are responsible for intellect, Venus you take love"...etc.
Lol...somehow, I don't think so...
