Today feels like a…

Sunday, November 16, 2014 Tariq Al saud

Have you ever noticed how each weekday has a distinct feel to it? This is partly because of the planet governing the day. Each day of the week is governed by a planet or a luminary (moon and sun), therefore each day contains a special energy and feel to its accordance to the overruling planet.

We have talked about the planets and the moon in previous articles and how they influence our lives, personalities or attitudes and how they also shape our ways of thinking and acting.  This is especially true towards how we relate to many situations and emotions that we face in our lives. Now it’s time for us to know how the planets control our days and give us whatever positive or negative waves that can affect our emotions. We’ll explore the days of the week from an astrological perspective, and tap into the symbolism of days with a little help from the galaxy. We can use astrological meaning of days to enhance our progress every day of the week. We can even plan our days according to its governmental planet. For example, Wednesday is a great day to work on correspondence as it is ruled by Mercury, a planet incredibly attuned to clear communication.

Learning the planetary personalities and each meaning of days is important. A fabulous flow of energy can be created when we work with the planetary attributes rather than blindly moving through our week. We will discover a secret weapon for success and productivity by knowing the astrological meaning of days because we are working with the cosmic orbits, not against them.

The Seven-Day Week

The Babylonians marked time with lunar months. They proscribed some activities during several days of the month, particularly the

first -- the first visible crescent,
seventh -- the waxing half moon,
fourteenth -- the full moon,
nineteenth -- dedicated to an offended goddess,
twenty-first -- the waning half moon,
twenty-eighth -- the last visible crescent,
twenty-ninth -- the invisible moon, and
thirtieth (possibly) -- the invisible moon.

The major periods are seven days long. This seven-day period was later regularized and disassociated from the lunar month to become our seven-day week.

The Naming of the Days

The Greeks named the days of the week after the sun, the moon and the five known planets. These in turn were named after the gods Ares, Hermes, Zeus, Aphrodite, and Cronus. The Greeks called the days of the week the Theon hemerai "days of the Gods". The Romans substituted their equivalent gods for the Greek gods, Mars, Mercury, Jove (Jupiter), Venus, and Saturn. (The two pantheons are very similar.) The Germanic peoples generally substituted roughly similar gods for the Roman gods, Tiu (Twia), Woden, Thor, Freya (Fria), but did not substitute Saturn.

How does the governor planets of the days can affect us?


Monday is governed by moon, so we are dealing with emotions, moods, intuition and the shadowy side of life. Many people report Monday as the most challenging day of the week. It’s the day that we need more meditation, dream analysis, rest, quiet time, reflection, and sleep. It is a day for spending more time with family members inside the house. It is mirroring day for reflecting our feelings


Mars is the governor of Tuesday and it’s an aggressive planet. Tuesday is a driving force in the workweek. It will bring on a sense of productivity, competition, effectiveness, determination and completion. With these kinds of energies in the forefront, Tuesday is the perfect day for finishing long overdue tasks. Conversely, Tuesday is also a great day to start new projects depending on the moon’s phase. It is good for building strategies at work or in a career, acting on new ideas, starting new projects, cleaning out clutter, exercising, finishing to-do lists. It is also a good day or catching up and dealing with managers or to attend interviews for work. We have to stay calm. Any kind of stress or rude conversation will inspire us to be very aggressive. We may drive our car very fast today and get speeding tickets on Tuesdays.


Mercury is the governor of Wednesday and the messenger of the heavens. It facilitates clear communication, and carries new information to our awareness in extremely precise and effective ways. Mercury brings with it higher levels of perception. It is a good day for communication of course, catching up on emails, thank you notes, letters, phone calls and correspondence. Wednesday is a good day to sign contracts (that is, if Mercury is not in a retrograde). Mercury is a beneficent aid in creating energy for short travel, short terms of studies/courses and orientations. We need to work quickly on Wednesday so we can catch up with friends at dinner and socializing.


Jupiter is the governor of Thursday and it is the biggest planet in our solar system. That’s why Thursday is the most productive day of the week in business. Jupiter is the planet of enterprise and expansion. It is an extremely optimistic planetary energy and can be felt all through the day when we attune to it. A very good day for socializing (thirsty Thursday!), networking and marketing oneself or endeavors. Working with financial tasks such as the stock market or even checkbook balancing will lead to positive results in the long term when done on Thursdays while ruminating in Jupiter’s energy. It is the day for spiritual, religious/philosophy readings and studies. It is a good day to start to plan for immigration or traveling. We will feel generosity around us.


Venus is the governor of Friday. The traditional end-of-the-work week, Venus is about love, connection, belonging, comfort, sensuality and passion. Friday is a feel-good day, replete with the energy of friendliness and kindness. Interestingly, Friday is also the most popular (romantic) date night. The best tasks and events for Fridays should include romance. Fridays is perfect for expressing your love amidst friends and family. This is a great day for pleasure and appreciation. Trips to places that make you feel indulged, luxurious or pampered are perfection (like a spa, salons, movie theaters, jewelry stores) but also attending art galleries or music concerts are perfect on this day.


Saturn is the governor of Saturday. It can be a stern energy and a real taskmaster too. This makes Saturday one of the most advantageous days of week because opportunity for productivity and completing tasks is optimal. Unlike Thursday/Jupiter however, Saturn isn't as jovial when working to get a job done. In fact, Saturdays are best put to use when we thoroughly plan for prevention or preparation for the future. Preparing for the week ahead on Saturday will align our Saturn energies and bring about satisfactory results for each consecutive day in the upcoming week. Best tasks for Saturday: housework, preparation for upcoming events, academic tasks like studying and homework (ick), catching up on a backlog of work. We can feel a little bit of an emotional challenge on Saturdays. Sometimes these days bring on a need to be alone.


The Sun is the governor of Sunday and throughout time, the sun shines brightly on our Sundays with clarity, vitality and a sense of well-being. This day is optimal for soaking up some social-warmth by being with family, friends and neighbors. It's also a perfect day to catch up on our rest and relaxation. The sun is all about radiance, sharing, expressing, expanding and growth. The sun is also about provision, as it insures the continuation of life as we know it. Therefore, the best tasks for Sunday include: rest, relaxing, having fun with loved ones, gardening, grocery shopping, cooking and worship for the purpose of illumination. We feel more generosity towards our friends and family.

When we talk about the planets, meanings of the day and the horoscope we very much need the time to analyze and calculate lots of data. We need numbers most certainly and that’s what we will talk about it on the up coming article. So prepare your calculators and stay tuned. Make it a great week.
