There are 4 main lunar phases: 1st Quarter, Full Moon, 3rd Quarter, and New Moon. Each of the 4 phases is a little over 7 days (~7.4 days) each (varying due to apogee & perigee). This is where we get our 7-day week and 4 weeks in a 'moonth'.
"Osiris was held by the Egyptians to have lived 28 years (recorded by Plutarch)...28 days of visible moon in each month." - Peter Lemesurier, 'The Great Pyramid Decoded' (Barnes & Noble, rev. 1996)
The ancients (Sumerians, Egyptians, Hebrews, etc.) observed 7 moving objects in the heavens - the '7 (Classical) Planets' / '7 Luminaries' / '7 Heavens' - and 4 of these do not cast shadows on Earth (on a moonless night, Venus can) / 4 aren't easily seen during the day (Venus can be).
