That's because you're assuming that these little
moon figures have a certain meaning. But we can't
really know what their meaning is. Maybe they
just mean that each segment is a month. Maybe the
cresent size is not important but only the
colour. In fact, I would be very surprised if
the cresent size is relevant. There is even one
figure where the moon has two crescents, one on
each side.

But, obviously, I don't know :-/

In the end, it becomes a matter of words.
I don't think that the seven words are certainly
the seven planet names, but I think it is a
very promising lead. 
Of the Pleiades I am far more confident, but
even here one cannot be certain that the character
string near the seven stars is actually a word
giving the name of the Pleiades in some language
or code.
