Are they gods of something? Or are there numbers in front of the words?

Unfortunately not Kareny Mam....the third one is blank because there is specifically not a third one. ewe need to reason why. When ewe have discovered the reasoning behind the others ewe should be able to easily understand why there is no third one !!

I recognise the theme but I don't know why the third one is blank (although I appreciate why the third one is special). Might the ninth word have been Disney, if it hadn't recently been demoted? Am I sort of on the right track? I'm going to look the others up on Wiki because I can only match up three of the words at the moment.

Aha. I've got it. Wiki says the ninth one would be metals and fish, which makes me a philistine for saying Disney!

Ewe are definitely on the right track though the ninth (if it had not been demoted) would be Death or perhaps Underworld !

ewe are almost there !!

OK, here is the answer..I stumped ewe all but congrats to JC for getting almost there.



Each one of those words are the meanings behind the mythological God names of the planets............... MERCURY-God of Invention, VENUS- God of Love etc etc...the reason why the third one is blank is because EARTH is not named after a mythological God....see ?

If we're talking Roman deities, then there was an Earth god(ess)...

Quote
Terra Mater or Tellus was a goddess personifying the Earth in Roman mythology.
The names Terra Mater and Tellus Mater both mean "Mother Earth" in Latin; Mater is an honorific title also bestowed on other goddesses.

Many here refer to Mother Earth! A term or name we grew up hearing.
