Planetary rulers of the days of the week
“Monday’s Child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s Child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s Child is full of woe,
Thursday’s Child has far to go,
Friday’s Child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s Child works hard for a living,
But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
Is fair and wise and good and gay.”
The ancient Babylonians chose to organize their calendar around 7 days of the week, and each day corresponds to one of the seven “planets” visible to the naked eye. [Planets is in quotations because two—the Sun and the Moon—are technically not planets (they’re luminaries).]
Monday (lundi in French) is ruled by the Moon. ”Monday’s child is fair of face” might refer to the sensitivity and youthfulness associated with the Moon.
Tuesday (mardi in French) is ruled by Mars. ”Tuesday’s child is full of grace” might be more aptly interpreted as full of energy and movement.
Wednesday (mercredi in French) is ruled by Mercury. ”Wednesday’s child is full of woe” might be interpreted as a person who worries or thinks too much.
Thursday (jeudi in French) is ruled by Jupiter. ”Thursday’s child has far to go” might thus be interpreted as a person who will travel and learn.
Friday (vendredi in French) is ruled by Venus. “Friday’s child is loving and giving” might refer to the Venus nature, that is, a person who is loving and receptive to love.
Saturday (samedi in French) is ruled by Saturn. ”Saturday’s child works hard for a living” thus might refer to the Saturnine nature which is rather serious and responsible.
Sunday (dimanche in French) is ruled by the Sun. ”But the child born on the Sabbath Day is fair and wise and good and gay” might refer to the magnanimous Sun nature.
Astrologers generally pay more attention to the ruling planets in a natal chart. That is, the planet that rules the sign on your Ascendant and the planet that rules the sign of your Sun. For example, if your Ascendant is Aries, Mars is the ruling planet of your Ascendant since Mars is the natural ruler of Aries. If your Sun is in Taurus, then Venus is your Sun’s ruling planet since Venus is the natural ruler of Taurus.
A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs on Saturday, May 25th, 2013, at 12:25 AM EDT.
Early Saturday, a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs with a Sagittarius Moon opposing the Sun in Gemini. Lunar Eclipses are about relationships and polarities. With the Gemini-Sagittarius axis involved, this Lunar Eclipse presses us to look more closely at our needs, lacks, and wants in our lives concerning the balance between Gemini-ruled and Sagittarius ruled areas of life. The Gemini-Sagittarius polarity is a mental axis, where Gemini represents the “lower mind” and Sagittarius represents the “higher mind”. The Gemini Sun encourages us to think logically, while the Sagittarius Moon persuades us to intuit, and to think in a broader manner.
Virgo and Gemini - thanks to Mercury as their ruler they are apt at languages and picking up new ones. Aquarius and Sagittarius for the cultural relevance
Star Sign Quotes
aries: i like their sense of humor & what you see is what you get but dislike their need to intimidate and command when they have no authority
taurus: i like their gentle stability and aura of just… steadiness, like, in earthy rhythm, i mean, no matter what you know you can depend on them. i dislike how it is difficult to read them. So i guess that is more of a personal issue lol. sometimes i just find myself gravitating towards them asking them what i should do because they have more of a clear mind lol
gemini: that it is an easy flowing conversation easy to find common ground it is usually funny&you learn something - dislike the command of conversation and how they have an answer for everything
cancer:i like how you feel relaxed and just, warmed by their presence, like they wont hurt you - but I dislike that they will, and you dont expect it
leo:i like how they give sound counsel and advice and will never turn around someone in need; i dont like how upfront and unkind they can be at times and realize it but not apologize
virgo: I find conversation easy and stimulating. They are generous and friendly. I like their simplicity even though they are complicated. I like their rationalization. and um, reply to your messages please.although who am i to talk
libra: breath of fresh air, when i am around Librans I feel a cool breeze around me, easy free flowing conversation and light, dislike how they are not upfront with you
scorpio: learn something from them - always, there is many sides to them and i like waiting for the one I like to come out,I dislike how they are closed minded to the point of frustration
sagittarius:so much fun, i love them (sister sign)so funny, laughter, lightness, casualness, I feel like I am almost with the closest to myself,dislike their skeptical nature and how they are open minded, but they are really not…
capricorn:that steady grounding nature, that wry humor - the laugh, they have the best smile Capricorns, I love it. Its the best. Something about them makes me nervous though. Like I have to impress them
Aquarius: Funny, I love the conversation - they get me, ideas, the friendliness and casualness; the fight for social justice so present in all of them, its surprising how they have the reputation for being wonder/magical and eccentric thinkers yet they are so scientific based. I guess when astrology was conceptualised ‘futuristic’, magic and wonder would have been attributed to science, whereas now the role is reversed. Aquarians are in the ‘now’. So their thinking is relevant to this time.
Pisces: The love, the warmth, the ear, the way they will always listen, and know what to say, and even if they dont, they will be there. I dont like how they will volunteer to do things for people then complain about it - or gossip. Lol. But I love all signs. Of course!!! x)) ❤❤❤❤❤ Cherry
I think because the ‘hard’ aspects (such as opposition and square) represent the balancing of tension and restoring of equilibrium; its all about transformation - which is what the harmony of the sister signs seeks to align. The opposition aspect focuses on our deepest needs of existence - the weaknesses we need to overcome, the insecurities we need to throw way… the tension of sister signs/opposition aspects can lead to a movement back and forth between extremes, internal confusion, and indecision. Opposition aspects in astrology are pretty much about balancing the tension between two equal, yet opposite forces, and finding away to find fire in the energy of both. I hope that made sense…?
