    Which Day of the Week Were You Born?

    Which is your day of birth? And is there any 'key word' which you think it suits you concerning that day?


    I read a while ago some interesting descriptions on the days of the week, and I thought that what was written about my day of birth kind of suits me. Though, I couldn't find online readable sources to link here... but at least I guess it would be funny to see if there's anything to suit each of us, concerning the day of the week we were born on. To summarize into some 'key words' what I've read so far:


    Monday - Moon - Freya
    Day of Divination and Mystery, connected to number 9, the most sacred of the numbers (eternal life; the nine Worlds of Yggdrasil). Cats. The Valkyries.

    Tuesday - Tyr
    Day of Fury, connected to number 5, number of time and ordered space (there were 5 days of the week, and that was also the term for responding to legal issues). Law and Order. The North Star.

    Wednesday - Odin
    Day of Science, connected to number 8, number of integrity and perfect symmetry (the musical octave). Thought and Memory. Knowledge. The Secrets of the Runes. The Allfather.

    Thursday - Thor
    Day of Politics and Religion, connected to number 4, a powerful number (4 seasons, 4 cardinal points, 4 main directions). Strength. The Hearth.

    Friday - Frigga
    Day of Love, connected to number 7, number of completion (7 colours of the rainbow, 7 musical notes). Fertility. Motherhood. Marital Happiness. Sacred Wisdom.

    Saturday - Balder
    Laundry Day (Lřrdag), connected to number 3, number of primordial force, of dynamism (Past, Present, Future; Birth, Life, Death; +, -, neuter). Vegetation.

    Sunday - Sun - Frey
    Day of Light, connected to number 6, number of life (which can be used to create or to destroy). The Northern Lights.


    You may add other 'key words' if you have any ideas. I'd be glad if you can find extra sources on the days of the week, concerning the Germanic world. (Here is an article I found, but I'm not satisfied with it, and I'd also be interested to find out more related to the possible meanings and origins)


    I tend to think that if there were 5 days of the week in the ancient times (I couldn't find too many sources on the 5 days issue, maybe someone can help), before 'adapting' to the 7 days week, then maybe the meanings of today Monday and Friday could have had the same origin, as well as the meanings of today Saturday and Sunday. At least it makes sense to me.

    I am also Thor's Day. My great grandfather and son are named Thorston and in the manner of the God Himself I have always been gregarious and a wee loud at times. I do like the All-Brother as kind of a patron, also.

    I was born on a Tuesday, as was my mother, and as both of my brothers were.(!) My father is a Sunday birth, my sister a Friday birth.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
