One day last year I realized that the French and Spanish words for the days of the week closely mirrored the names of the planetary rulers of each day. By no means am I an astrologer, but I am a believer in astrology, and a student if you will. I like to check my daily horoscope to see what’s going on in the ethers that could affect my day, week, etc. From there, I decided I should look up how each planet influences the day it rules energetically. In my quest for intentional conscious living, I figured being aware of the specific energy each day brings along with the influence of my personal natal chart could help me navigate each day easier. I’m all about going with the natural flow of things as to not create resistance. I thought I’d share what I found!
Here are the days of the week, and a little about their planetary rulers and how they could affect the energy of the given day.
Sunday. Domingo. Dimanche. Sun.
Sunday is ruled by the Sun and the Sun rules Leo.
The Sun reflects the present or the “here and now.”
“When we are acting out our Sun, we are purposeful, directed, proud, and creative. On the negative side, we can be haughty, overly willful, self-centered, and judgmental.”-cafeastrology.com
Sunday is a good day for getting prepared for the week with the Sun helping us to be purposeful and directed, take the time to sketch out or set intentions for how you would like to journey through the week.
Monday. Lunes. Lundi. Moon
Monday, ruled by the moon, the Moon ruling Cancer, the perfect day to unfurl like incense smoke.
“We can also think of the Moon as that which gives us animation. It rules rhythmic ebb and flow of activity and energy. The Moon is a mediator between the inner world and the outer world… The Moon is associated with the mother and with feminine energy in general. The Moon is both our inner child and our inner mother. It is responsive, receptive, and reflective. The Moon is our spontaneous and instinctual reactions.” -cafeastrology.com
Mondays get it bad, probably because the hustle and bustle of daily life go against the nature of the day. Perhaps most people hate Mondays because the grind that we love so much isn’t aligned with the energy of the day? Even if you only have a few minutes to do so, slow down a bit, take advantage of the sensitive, intuitive, deeply emotional energy of this beautiful day.
Tuesday. Martes. Mardi. Mars.
Tuesday is ruled by Mars. Mars rules Aries & co-rules Scorpio.
“Mars is the push that gets us out of bed in the morning, our drive and desire nature, and our active energy. When we are “acting out” our Mars, we are assertive, directed, forthright, and adventurous. On the negative side, we can be impulsive, rash, impatient, aggressive, and forceful.” -cafeastrology.com
Keep this in mind as you journey through your day. Awareness can keep you from venturing to the negative side, or at least allow you to recognize you’re there and get back to the center rather quickly. With this energy. Tuesday is the perfect day to get sh*t done!
Wednesday. Miércoles. Mercredi. Mercury.
Wednesday is ruled by Mercury and Mercury rules Virgo & Gemini. Mercury is the planet of communication.
“Mercury analyzes, sorts, groups, and makes sense of things. How do we handle nervous energy? How do we express and convey our thoughts? How do we approach others and information in order to learn and exchange ideas?” -cafeastrology.com
Wednesday is a good day to have that conversation you’ve been avoiding or to reach out to that influencer you’ve been dying to collaborate with. With Mercury on your side, you’re likely to find just the right words and the perfect delivery to ensure you get your desired results. If you struggle with communication, invest in lapis lazuli. “Lapis Lazuli is a stone of communication that can bring truthfulness, openness, and mental clarity.” -caligirlgems.com
I’ve personally been working with lapis for a couple of years now, and it’s one of my favorites. I’m someone that loves teaching and speaking to groups but I still get big time butterflies, so I bring it with me when I have public speaking events, interviews, etc. It helps me speak my truth no matter how nervous I may be. If you’re not into crystals, are unable to get some right now, or are in need of immediate assistance, use your own innate power and set the intention to have the energy of Mercury fuel your communication. May this day allow you to speak your truth clearly and assuredly.
Thursday. Jueves. Jeudi. Jupiter.
Thursday is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter rules Sagittarius & co-rules Pisces.
Jupiter is the planet of expansion and abundance.
“In astrology, Jupiter is the planet of plenty. It is tolerant and expansive. The first of the social planets, Jupiter seeks insight through knowledge. Some of the planets keywords include morality, gratitude, hope, honor, and the law. Jupiter is a planet of broader purpose, reach, and possibility.” -cafeastrology.com
My Sun is in Sag, so I’m very familiar with Jupiter’s grand energy. A couple of my favorite aspects of Jupiter’s influence are the quest for higher knowledge, unwavering optimism, and love of travel. Is there something new you want to learn? Maybe you’ve been wanting to take a solo self-care trip? Thursday could be a good day to do those things, or at least put them into motion. If you’ve been feeling stalled in some of these areas don’t worry, Jupiter has been in retrograde, but stationed direct June 9, 2017! How can you use Jupiter’s energy to your benefit?
Friday. Viernes. Vendredi. Venus.
Friday is ruled by Venus & Venus rules both Taurus and Libra.
In astrology, Venus represents love and money. “Love and money is actually a simplistic interpretation of Venus: Venus rules out sentiments, what we value, and the pleasure we take in life. Grace, charm, and beauty are all ruled by Venus. Through Venus, we learn about our tastes, pleasures, artistic inclinations, and what makes us happy… We look to Venus in the natal chart to see how we approach relationships of the heart, as well as what gives us pleasure… We also turn to Venus to show how we spend our money, the types of gifts we buy, and how much we spend on leisure activities (not to mention the kinds of leisure activities we seek out)”-cafeastrology.com
We all love Friday amirite? Take a few moments to reflect on love this day. How you love, how you desire to be loved, and how you can incorporate love into all you do.
Since Venus is also about the moola, it’s also a good time to reflect on your relationship to money. How do you feel about money? Is the relationship strained or does it flow easily? Are there any ways you can improve your relationship with money? Are you afraid to admit that you love money? I know, I know, it’s frowned upon to say you love money, but be honest, you love it.
Saturday. Sábado. Samedi. Saturn.
Saturday is ruled by Saturn, Saturn rules Capricorn & co-rules Aquarius.
“In astrology, Saturn is associated with restriction and limitation. Where Jupiter expands, Saturn constricts. Although the themes of Saturn seem depressing, Saturn brings structure and meaning to our world. Saturn knows the limits of time and matter. Saturn reminds us of our boundaries, our responsibilities, and our commitments. It brings definition to our lives. Saturn makes us aware of our need for self-control and of our boundaries and our limits.”-cafeastrology.com Although, not typical of what you think of when you think of a Saturday, Saturn’s influence can help us get our sh*t together. Is there some dead weight you’ve been holding onto? Let it go. Someone still in your circle that is bringing you nothing? Kick them out. Maybe there are some boundaries that you need to define or redefine? Get to editing.
