Imagine if every single day was lived out to its full possibilities and potential.
Imagine how it FEELS when life is easy, and in the flow.
Imagine what would happen if you lived in alignment with each days’ energies.
More magic. 7 days a week.
I recently had an astrology reading with the extraordinarily astute and intuitive Zoe from Astrozo.com, who introduced me to the meanings of each day of the week and the energetic vibrations each of these hold. Understanding how to access the potential of each allows us to live a life more in the flow, with more ease, and more joy. Which means we can make more magic, every day.
This got me thinking about the days of the week, and how I am intuitively structuring my days, in tune with what feels like comes most easily. By tuning into the natural flow.
For example Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the days on which I schedule most of my coaching calls; Fridays I like to indulge in creative outlets; and Saturdays are filled with social activities, going to the market to get the weeks supply of organic fruit and vegetables and catching up on any meetings or calls that couldn’t take place during the week. Sunday I like to keep completely un-scheduled (as you will learn at The Winter Nurture Workshop, you’re coming, right?!) and just be spontaneous whereas Mondays are about inner-reflection and spiritual practices, and doing the inner work that’s necessary to shift anything that’s holding me back.
Monday’s: Get in touch with your feelings, be mindful of your moods, purify your surroundings, show compassion.
Monday: Monday is a moon day, and 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 no wonder, as the moon carries with it erratic and sometimes unpredictable energy. We can counteract fast fluctuations in lunar energy by taking note of the phase of the moon every Monday. This lets our logical mind know “where we stand” in a metaphorical sense.
Best tasks for Mondays: Meditation, dream analysis, quiet time, personal indulgence, rest, relaxation, sleep.
TUESDAY. SPIRITUAL WARRIOR.
Tuesday’s: Express your passion, get some exercise, release pent up frustration/energy.
Tuesday: Mars is an aggressive planet. In fact, its namesake in Greek myth was the god of war. Tuesday is a driving force in the workweek, and will auger 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.
Best tasks for Tuesdays: Building strategies at work and in career, marketing, acting on new ideas, starting new projects, cleaning out clutter, exercising, finishing to-do lists or catching up.
Wednesday’s: Study, travel, research, meditate, teach, talk, write, hold meetings.
Wednesday: Mercury is the messenger of the heavens. It facilitates clear communication, and carries new information to our awareness in extremely precise and effective ways. Mercury also augers higher perception too. I love the synchronicity of Wednesday landing in the middle of the week because it gives a pervasive sense of connectivity. In a way, Wednesday is the vital communications link to all other days – it’s like the network server of the week (to use computer terms).
Best tasks for Wednesdays: Communication of course! Catch up on emails, thank you notes, letters, phone calls, etc. Wednesday is a good day to sign contracts (that is, if Mercury is not in a retrograde) too. Mercury is also a beneficent energy for short travel, so plan your day trips accordingly.
Thursday’s: Donate to a charity or worthy cause, make an investment, show your appreciation.
Thursday: Jupiter. A survey concludes Thursday is the most productive day of the week in business. It’s no wonder, as Jupiter has a way of lighting a fire under us and getting us moving. Jupiter is the planet of enterprise and expansion. It’s also an extremely optimistic planetary energy that can be felt all through the day on Thursdays when we tune into it.
Best tasks for Thursdays: Socializing, networking, marketing. 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 energy.
FRIDAY. VENUS DAY.
Friday’s: Appreciate the people in your life, go on a date, show your love, recognize beauty, make new friends. Enjoy fashion and creative pursuits.
Friday: We all know Venus energy, and when it comes to the symbolic meaning of days, Venus is a highly appropriate vibe for Friday, the traditional end-of-the-workweek day. Venus is about love, connection, belonging, comfort, sensuality and passion. If you think about it, the majority people who have traditional Monday – Friday workweeks tend let their hair down and really celebrate on Fridays (points for kicking off the weekend too). Friday is an all-around-feel-good day, replete with the energy of friendliness and kindness. Interestingly, Friday is also the most popular (romantic) date night too.
Best tasks for Fridays: Romance, romance, romance! Did I mention romance? Fridays are also perfect for expressing your love amidst friends and family. This is a great day for pleasure and appreciation, so trips to places that make you feel indulged, luxurious or pampered are good too (like a spa, salon, the movies, a jewelry store).
Saturday’s: Clean your house, take a break, finish a project, meet a deadline. Today is about structure, workshops and planning.
Saturday: Saturn 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. Preparing for the week ahead on Saturday will align our Saturn energies and bring about satisfactory results for each consecutive day in the week.
Best tasks for Saturday: Housework, preparation for upcoming events, academic tasks like studying and homework, catching up on a backlog of work (I’m always working Saturdays.)
Sunday’s: Take time for you, take a nature walk, get in touch with your spirit, meditate.
Sunday: The Sun is notorious throughout time and cultures as being a day of rest, 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, illumination and growth. The sun is also about provision, as it insures the continuation of life as we know it.
Best tasks for Sunday: Rest, relaxing, having fun with loved ones, gardening, grocery shopping, cooking and worship for the purpose of illumination.
