Astrology and the Days of the Week

Astrology and the Days of the Week

By Julie Ann Fae

Did you know that astrology can be used to make informed decisions for daily energy? That's right. Each day of the week corresponds to a different planetary energy. You can also go hour by hour, although I won't get into that here. Let’s take another Gif inspired romp into some astro enlightenment.


Monday is ruled by the Moon. This is a good day for planning and reflecting. You feel more inclined to stay home at this time (hence the "Monday blues") and it can be a day where you feel extra cranky. A way to work this energy is to treat yourself to moon-inspired comforts. What comforts you? What's a little indulgence that makes you feel more loved, supported, mothered and taken care of?

Tuesday is ruled by Mars. This is a better day to now take action on the intuitive ideas that came through yesterday. Your energy is likely to pick up more this day, and it is a good day to really get forward moving with tasks for the week. Use that Mars vibe and stay strong!

Wednesday is ruled by Mercury. This is a great day for communications, getting organized, and getting things done in paperwork, written word, details etc. This can also be a good day to review written word intentions set from Monday or tasks left behind from Tuesday that need rework. Use the energy of this day to schedule meetings, inform better phone calls, revise plans, and write.

Thursday is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter is an expansive planet about good times, higher learning, and higher truths. This is the day you take that e-course, you learn a new skill, chat with someone about your belief systems, learn a new higher mind task. This can also be a good time to just treat yourself to things that bring you joy as Jupiter rules joy. Pay attention to which planets you have retrograde in your birth chart as this will become more magnified on these days. For example, I have Jupiter in retrograde and I notice Thursday start of day is more messy than Thursday end of day. When I look back, I reflect and realize that much has been learned and integrated.

Friday is ruled by Venus. I always love a Friday! I was born on a Friday and am also double ruled by Venus. This day is good for one to one personal connections with others. It is where you indulge in the sweet things of life, like an enjoyable meal at the end of the day, a friend date, a romantic date, or simply just celebrate beauty around you. Is it any wonder why people love Fridays?

Saturday is ruled by Saturn. This is a good day for paying bills (as Saturn rules karma and is Father Time), making serious plans, or having more structured conversations. I always seek to deposit checks or do other bill related tasks other days of the week, but it somehow usually gets lumped to Saturday. Saturn is like that. It forces you to catch up with what you might have been slacking on.  

It can be a day you might do more physical work, like laundry or cleaning, or responsibilities to family and friends (as Saturn rules responsibilities). Some of the day might feel like all work and no play, but just keep in mind this day is squeezed between the two sweetest planets of the astrals so you just might need that structure and discipline. 

It's interesting, though, because many people choose to try and relax on Saturdays. A good way to think about this is that Saturn is associated with Capricorn and that is on the same axis as the Moon. There can be a shadow side to Capricorn (as Cancer is their 7th house) in which instead of being responsible, its like they become is opposite. They become unresponsive and they lounge, eat, don't really do much. It depends on people's planetary chart rulers and the influence of Saturn in their birth chart. There are “healthy” Saturn charts and “unhealthy” Saturn charts!

Sundays are easily my favorite day of the week. Sundays are ruled by the sun. So this is the day you get to! What lights you up? What makes you happy? What fills your inner child with joy? These are the things to do this day. This is the day you fill yourself up on that energy so that when the moon-day feels strike you will be more full. If you took that time for your inner child on Sunday, it can fill you with love all week.

I like to use my Sundays for literally getting time in the sun (if possible), art and creativity, listening to positive talks and snuggling my furbaby, and then grocery shopping and getting prepped for good meals for the week. I don't want to hear a thing about work and I usually try and not check emails. For me what lights me up is freedom, learning, and good health. Do what lights you up on this day and you cannot lose!
