Planetary Associations with Each Day of the Week

days of the week2

 

Each day of the week is associated with a Planet.  I’m taking a temporary break from the Moon House Transits to post this one.  The planetary associations of each day are as follows:

Day: Monday
Planetary Association: Moon
Norse Deity Associated With the Day: Frigga
Origin of Name: “Monday” is short for “Moon Day” in honor of the day’s alignment with that planetary body.

Monday’s child is fair of face

Origin of Name: Named for Tiu, the Anglo-Saxon moniker for Tyr, the Norse god of war and justice (“Tiu’s Day”).
