Fewer Births on Weekends

A lower number of babies are being born on Saturdays and Sundays. What does it mean to have fewer Saturn and Sun ruled children in the overall mix of things?

Up until 1950 most women were giving birth at home with the help of relatives and midwives. At that time the number of births was reported to be equally divided between the seven days of the week. This means that about 14 percent of infants were being born naturally on any given day. Since then the Saturday and Sunday births have each steadily dropped to about 12 percent and that’s where it is right now.

The difference between 14 and 12 percent doesn’t seem like a big deal, but it is. There are approximately 360,000 babies born daily in the world. The 2 percent difference between 14 and 12 per that day of the week throughout one year equals 18,000 births. So considering both days, Saturday and Sunday, 36,000 births “might be” occurring on the wrong day of the week each year. I say “might be” because we can’t prove that the birth of babies are actually intended for certain days of the week.

Right this shift in day of the week births only concerns the high-tech medical nations. It comes from the scheduling of births for the convenience of hospital and clinics. Deliveries that can be planned (induced and cesarean procedures) are scheduled on weekdays when hospitals are fully staffed. Several medical articles have appeared discouraging the use of these two surgical interventions except in emergencies, but any immediate changes in this direction seems highly unlikely.

If Saturday and Sunday are losing births, what days of the week are gaining them? It’s the weekdays, Monday through Friday, that are being utilized for these procedures. The actual frequency of the day of the week depends upon the particular nations and their medical practices, but Tuesday and Thursday are generally favored.

How does Dayology view these birth trends? An even distribution of births through the seven days of the week creates an equal number of Days Rays throughout humanity. To have a steady rise in Tuesday born children makes for more active and aggressive elements within our society. More Thursday born children increases our hopes, as well as appetites and expectations.  A lack of Sunday born children means that we have fewer natural leaders and managers to organize us.  A lack of Saturday born children indicates an absence of responsible figures to help us keep in touch with essential values and strengthen our connections to our environment.

Our current social scene does seem to resemble this odd mix of energies. If this new combination of Day Rays has any effect on our affairs, it can only be corrected by allowing natural “birthing” to occur. It is not being suggested that we  go back to home births, but that the natural Day Ray rhythms be respected by letting births to take place naturally on the day of the Soul’s choice. There’s no reason that doctors can’t rotate, and sometimes take time off during the week, so that there’s always someone in there to graciously greet the newcomers to our planet.
