Thursday is the fifth day of the week. It follows Wednesday and precedes Friday. Thursday is one of the five work days. The Romans named this day after the huge planet (Thor) Jupiter.
On Thursday we view the larger picture. We are over the hump and the end of the work week is in sight. It is time to take stock of all that has been accomplished and attend to the finishing details. Jupiter wants things done right, especially concerning the final points of promotion and presentation. If anything submitted for our approval seems substandard, damaged or inequitable, we should consult the advice of the appropriate professionals. Our major problem on Thursday is that may promise more than we can deliver because the grandiose has a compelling appeal. Still, its a wonderful day to survey our kingdoms and look after the needs of those who are not as fortunate as ourselves.
Thursday Two-minute Task
These actions affirm that we live in a caring and abundant world. Take stock of everything good in your life. Make a list of everyone who has ever helped you. Consider one of your personal faults and ponder upon how it could be improved. Think of ways that you can give someone a hand today. Let someone help you. Find one positive feature about a public figure who is misunderstood or disliked. Visualize a place you would like to visit. Put the loose change from your pocket into a jar earmarked for realizing an impossible dream. Write a check to a worth cause or charity.
Angel of the Day
Archangel Sachiel rules Thursday. He has a generous nature and a great sense of humor. He pushes for abundance and sees the absolute best in everyone. Sachiel is the benefactor of teachers from preschool to post-graduate. He insists upon an equal playing field for all.
THE THURSDAY TYPE
Individuals born on Thursday view life as a positive experience which should be enjoyed. Not only do they long for the best that money can buy, they enjoy traveling and seeing for themselves how other people live. Their high regard for quality pushes them to maintain everything have have accumulated over time. Still possessions are not as dear to these folks as are their social reputations, which tend to be professional or professorial. JUPITER types prefer not to offend others, yet they become outraged when their own sense of pride is wounded. Their beliefs tend to be devout along the lines of orthodoxy, but sometimes equally ardent regarding less conventional belief systems.
