Days of the Week:

  Each day of the week has its own energies and influences. In the Craft we work with these to enhance our magick: Monday is for dreams, fertility and divination; Tuesday for resolution of conflict and for defence; Wednesday for travel, business, knowledge and exams; Thursday for wealth, ambition and career; Friday for friendship, romance, and self-respect; Saturday for binding and banishing; Sunday for energy, honor and results.

   There are many other traditional attributions. An old rhyme gives attributes for children born on each day of the week: "Monday's child is fair of face, Tuesday's child is full of grace, Wednesday's child is full or woe, Thursday's child has far to go, Friday's child is loving and giving, Saturday's child works hard for its living.  But the child that is born on the Sabbath day is blithe and bonny, happy and gay."  In New England each day is held to bring its own attributes: Monday for health, Tuesday for wealth, Wednesday the best of all, Thursday for losses, Friday for crosses, and Saturday no luck at all."

   Sunday and Monday are named after the Sun and Moon, with Saturday being named after both the God and thye planet Saturn. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are named after the Norse deities Wodin, Thor, and Freya. Tuesday also has a Norse derivation, from the God Tyr, whose name in Old English became Tiw.
