Everything about the 7 Day Week

Day of the Week Birthstones

It is a tradition to wear gemstones set into rings, earrings, and necklaces, especially if they are your birthstone.

Most of us know our birthstones.  These twelve gems supposedly strengthen the effects of the zodiac sign in which we were born and give us success in the outer world. Maybe it is superstitious to rely on outer objects to improve our lives, but at least its doing something. Lists of these zodiac birthstones are easily found on the Internet, although they don’t always agree on the specific gems which are supposed to improve our lives.

There is another set of birthstones that is not so well-known, but deserving of our attention. These birthstones represent the seven days of the week upon which we are born. They support the Day Ray that is guiding our Inner Selves. They help us  to contact with our Inner energies and become more aware of these hidden worlds. Vedic astrologers have utilized this set of spiritual gemstones for over five thousand years or more. How’s that for a ancient tradition?
