Everything about the 7 Day Week

Children of the Planets

OUTWARDLY our parents are human but …. INWARDLY that could be another story. Back in 15th century Europe it was thought that humanity was composed of seven groups of souls, each guided by one of the seven great planetary spirits.

The children of each “ray” shared temperaments, interests and skills. They often  worked at similar employments and enjoyed the same diversions. They may have been prone to even similar vices too. We can learn more about this astrological outlook on a colorful website entitled The Children of the Planets.

The mystery is how to determine which planet is looking over us. According to this authority there are two astrological approaches by which people can determine their ruling planet, and neither of them happen to be Dayology, which uses the seven days of the week.
