Moon in Pisces - The moon in Pisces reveals our permeability. We dream, and need to ground our dreams. We care, but can become overwhelmed by our awareness unless we feel spirit working through us. Time to: image, share, sense, meditate, nurture, soak and find constructive ways to be sensitive. With Moon in Pisces we feel the world with compassion, heightened senses and strong imagination. We need quiet time in the temple or back under our covers to deal with sensory overload. A time to vision, listen to inner voices, allow creative juices to flow and touch each other with new awareness. For those who were born under a Pisces Moon sign - you came here to feel everything; you may need to filter impressions and find your deep strength. You offer us insight, imagination and subtle, compassionate medicine while encouraging our vision. Moon in Pisces is the best time to work magick involving dreamwork, clairvoyance, telepathy music and the creative arts. Healing rituals for ailments of the feet or lymph glands are also done at this time.

It's Freya's Day - Venus Day - the Day of Sharing and Relationship - Relation Day...   Friday is named after the Norse goddesses of love, Freya and Frigga. There seems to be some debate as to whom the day is actually named after, so here is some information to help you decide for yourself.
    In Latin, this day is known as Dies Veneris, "Venus's day."  In Greek, it's Hermeru Aphrodites, which translates to the 'day of Aphrodite'. In Old English, this day is called Frigedaeg, or 'Freya's day.'  This day has the Germanic title of Frije-dagaz, which, once again, could be Freya's or Frigg's day.
   Both Freya and Frigga were Norse goddess of love and were the Teutonic equivalent of the Greco-Roman Venus/Aphrodite. However, Freya was one of the Vanir - the gods of fertility who supervised the land and sea - and she was the leader of the Valkyreis. Frigga, Odin's wife, was the goddess of heavens and of married love. She was one of the Aesir - the gods associated with battle, magick, and the sky. Freya and Frigga could be looked upon as different aspects of the same goddess. They both were called on to assist in childbirth and then in the naming of the new baby. Frigga represented the faithful wife and loving mother, while Freya who really captured the hearts and imagination of the Norse people, was the passionate mistress and lover.
    Fridays classically are days of love, fertility, romance and beauty magick, as well as working for happiness, harmony in the home, and friendship.
