Many of us were taught to recite the nursery rhyme Monday’s Child as kids, but we never learned its true meaning. It turns out that that little verse holds the secret to fulfilling our individual destinies through the energies of the Dayology week.
“Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go,
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonnie and blithe and good and gay.”
According to Wikipedia this verse first appeared
in A. E. Bray’s Traditions of Devonshire in 1883.
It was later included in the Mother Goose anthologies
and has found it’s way into preschool programs.
Throughout my childhood I was aware of the Monday’s Child poem, and with my intuitive mind, I grasped the simple idea of seven different types of people. Sadly no-one ever revealed which of the seven children represented me nor did I ask. It never occurred to my parents or teachers to give me any information of this kind. Perhaps they felt that this belief was just one of the silly superstitions that that are stuffed into the heads of children like Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny.
I didn’t ask because I thought the mystery of these seven types would be revealed to me an adult. Surely the grand and glorious creator of the Universe would not leave me stranded down here without knowing what path I was to take. It wasn’t until I was in my late twenties and studying esoteric astrology that the insight came to me that this little rhyme was related to the seven weekday rulers of astrology. The qualities of these heavenly bodies closely resembled the temperaments of the children in the poem. Out of curiosity I looked up my birth date and discovered I was born on Friday. Since then everything related to my Venus Day Ray has fallen into place.
Back then the Internet hadn’t been invented, so I didn’t have much direction beyond my childhood upbringing but I trusted my INNER self to help me discover what I needed to know, Dayology is the result. Then came this blog and who knows what is next!
