Why are Planets often referred to a Stars?

In several novels that I have read, what we call Planets are referred to a Stars.  I was wondering if this is a Translation matter or if it is related to a Chinese historical precedent/perception?

    Or maybe it's their astrological system 
  • I thought it was because plants look like stars when you look at them from really far distances.
