Moonday, Moonday… Discover The Astrology Behind The Days Of The Week!
Did you know that every day of the week has a corresponding planet?
Monday is the moon’s day in nearly all the languages in the world. However the link between day and planet is perhaps best understood using the French names of each day of the week: Lundi (Luna or Moon – Monday), Mardi (Mars), Mercredi (Mercury), Jeudi (Jupiter), Vendredi (Venus – Friday), Samedi (Saturn) and Sunday for the sun: Dimanche.
Astrology Days Of The Week – And What To Wear!
Mean Girls say “On Wednesdays we wear pink” but astrologers know that Mercredi is a day far better suited to Mercurial fashions…
These looks won’t fail you – work, play, and everything in between – I got you covered!
Monday, Lundi, Moon
Greys, Whites, Luminous Skin, Silver & Pearls…
The first day of the working week is traditionally the moon’s day.
Thankfully Luna governs greys, silvers and whites, so you can embrace the back to school vibe with a professional Moonday wardrobe of charcoal, dove grey and monochrome.
Wear your silver jewellery, feminine clothes. Adorn yourself with moonstone or pearl, and add a lunar like shimmer
“Monday’s child is fair of face” just like the Zodiac’s moon babes – Cancerian chicks. This sign is known for its pale, luminous skin expressing sensitive inclinations. Cancer is ‘like the moon’ (check out these gorgeous examples), sensitive, brooding and changeable.
Add a touch of lunar magic to your Monday!
Tuesday, Mardi, Mars
Red, Black, Sporty, Camo, Blush…
“Tuesday’s child is full of grace” because she can move like a warrior goddess.
Tuesday is Mars’ day, the planet of war and the battlefield, so this is the day to hit the gym! The passion of Mars suits the rebels and fighters, so use courage in your dress and actions on this day.
Just wearing a touch of military or camo print fashion can help you feel full of energy, assertiveness and better able to focus and navigate. Or be daring, sexy and aggressive with a bold look that turns heads!
The Chinese also associate Mars with Tuesday, and the Japanese give the day the meaning of ‘fire’.
Add a touch of blush or simply increase your heart rate for a rosy blush.
Wednesday, Mercredi, Mercury
Statement T-Shirt, Print & Pattern, Yellow, Creams, White…
Wednesday is the day to fully engage your brain.
Mercury’s day is a day to connect, and to be ‘Mercurial’ in your approach – curious and communicative.
Some think of Wednesday as ‘hump day’ describing the middle of the working week, however you can hop, skip and jump over said hump with the wings of Mercury!
The poem reads: “Wednesday’s child is full of woe”, which suggests a restless, worrisome energy.

While it’s true Mercury ruled signs Gemini and Virgo can be anxious, there is no need to over think things on a Wednesday, or to get bogged down. Uplift your spirits (and others) with cheerful yellow, uplifting fun prints and a slogan T-shirt that speaks volumes – so Mercury.
Thursday, Jeudi, Jupiter
Purple & Lavender, Jeans, Spiritual, World Traveller…
Thursday’s the day of expanding your horizons with a broadminded approach, thanks to Jupiter.
This is the day to publish, teach, learn, to soar and to connect to your spiritual self.
Ruler of Sagittarius and Pisces, Jupiter is connected to Royalty, prosperity, good luck and optimism. This planet is assigned the colour purple – a colour of wisdom and richness.
I am a child born on a Thursday and the meaning always had me perplexed – “Thursday’s child has far to go…” I was born with the Moon in Sagittarius and my Midheaven is Pisces. These two signs are the seekers of knowledge and spirituality, there’s a love of travel and learning – and we can always go further into such subjects.
Therefore Thursday is a fabulous day to wear jeans (even to work, if you can) reflecting the will to step out into the world eagerly. You can also wear purple accessories, lucky charms, and show you’re interested in travel or culture with a nod to a place you long to go…
Friday, Vendredi, Venus
Pink, Pastels, Full Lips, Adornments…
Friday is the day of Venus Aphrodite, which means it’s time to socialise, be artistic, flirt and have fun!
Venus is the planet of pleasure, harmony, fertility and enchantment. She adores getting her desires met – be it through a candy, kiss or pocketing some cash!
“Friday’s child is loving and giving” just as Venus is generous with her affections – when happy!
The goddess of abundance and money – Lakshmi – is associated with Friday too.
This is the optimum day for beautification, and the best colours for today include pink, pastels and any shades promoting peace, love and romance.
Saturday, Samedi, Saturn
Black, Structured Dress, Dark Liner…
Governed by stern Saturn, “Saturday’s child works hard for a living”.
Serious, responsible and hard, it seems counter intuitive to have the weekend governed by the planet of maturity.
However we can work this planet into our dress with chic, streamlined black and stark touches. It’s a great day to run errands and face up to any outstanding work that’s not been completed Monday to Friday…
Sunday, Dimanche, Sun
Wear Your Best! Dazzle Like The Sun…
The Sun shines bright on Sunday – at least metaphorically!
“The child born on the Sabbath Day is fair and wise and good and gay”. Everyone loves to soak up the warmth and light of the Sun, with eye-catching shades. Be sure to take your sunglasses with you to brunch and to wear your ‘Sunday Best’!
Wear gold jewellery, gold or sunshine yellow clothing. Make the most of your hair, your crowning glory!
