How the Day of Birth Influences Your Life
by: Tracy Porter
In ancient times the science of astrology was developed from the seven luminaries which appeared to encircle the earth, with Saturn considered the last planet in the solar system because it is the last celestial body which can be seen by the naked eye. While it is now common knowledge that the planets actually orbit the Sun and not the Earth, the fact that they appear to encircle the Earth lays the foundation for geocentric, or Earth centered, astrology which is used by most astrologers today. These seven bodies were the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, and the theological ideas of the day had such an impact on society that the days of the week were named for these celestial objects.
While many astrologers do not routinely note the day of the week a person was born, this information will help to pinpoint precise areas of importance in her life which may take a little more time to recognize looking only at her horoscope. Each day of the week carries with it special characteristics because it contains the vibratory influences of the planet it was named for.
Sunday is ruled by the Sun, the only star in our solar system. If you were born on this day you will find yourself surrounded children, pets and people you love. You like to have fun and good times, and may therefore have a propensity for gambling with love from time to time. While you generally have a sunny disposition, you can become quite listless or even melodramatic when confronted with distressing situations. You like to be the center of attention and tend to select friends who allow you to be in the spotlight. The number one is significant in your life as it is one of your lucky numbers. The Sun or Leo will be strongly accented in your birth horoscope.
Monday is ruled by the Moon, the Earth’s only satellite. If you were born on this day you will have strong attachments to women, mother figures and the home. You like being around people and will select a vocation where there is lot of interaction with others. Women are prominent figures in your life and you will be strongly affected by these associations as they have a profound impact on the way you view the world. You are very intuitive and tend to make decisions based upon your feelings rather than factual evidence presented to you. The number two strongly influences your life because it is one of your lucky numbers. The Moon or Cancer will likely be accented in your birth horoscope.
Tuesday is ruled by the planet Mars, so if you were born on this day you will have a lot of energy and be actively involved with projects throughout your life. Unless astrological influences indicate otherwise, you will be rather explorative and forge ahead where others may take a more cautious approach. While you do have a lot of drive which others lack, you will need to direct your energies into specific areas to avoid becoming a jack of all trades and master of none. The number nine will be significant in your life because it is one of your lucky numbers. Mars, Scorpio or Aries are accented in your birth horoscope.
Wednesday is ruled by the planet Mercury, and if you were born on this day you will as a rule be an analytical thinker. Your immediate environment will be of great importance as you work toward building relationships with siblings and neighbours. When all seems lost, you will come up with a solution to help you out of any uncomfortable situations you may have become involved in. Because you have the capacity to think swiftly you are considered a smooth talker. While a silver tongue can be an advantage, care must be taken not to abuse this gift because any uncovered untruths will only be detrimental to your reputation. The number five is significant in your life as it is one of your lucky numbers. Mercury, Gemini or Virgo will be aspected in your birth horoscope.
Thursday is ruled by the planet Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system. If you were born on this day you will find that money and expansion will be prominent features your life. While you can become depressed, you are usually optimistic about the future and hope that all will work out as it should even in the most trying of situations. Because you possess a nonjudgemental wisdom which you can impart to others in a manner they can understand, you will have many friends and acquaintances who come to you for advice and emotional support. You are one of life’s teachers, and even if you do not teach as a profession people can learn a lot from you simply from the example you set in your day to day dealings with others. The number three is significant to you because it is one of your lucky numbers. Jupiter, Pisces or Sagittarius will be strongly accented in your birth horoscope.
Friday is ruled by the planet Venus, so if you were born on this day you can be pleasant and charming, but prone to fits of jealousy when you feel competition has come to interfere. Money should come relatively easy, so you will be mildly affluent in comparison to your peers. Partnerships will be of paramount importance as these relationships will give you many opportunities for growth and development. You need to be in spacious surroundings with material comforts in order to be at home, and will therefore select partners who have the capacity to give you such amenities if you are not in a position to them through your own endeavors. The number six is significant to you because it is one of your lucky numbers. Venus, Taurus or Libra will be highlighted in your birth horoscope.
Saturday, the last day of the week, is ruled by Saturn, the last planet in the ancient solar system which represents the outer limits of one’s conscious awareness. If you were born on Saturday you will be very responsible and mature. While you can appear serious, those who get to know you will in time see your true self shine forth. Time will be of the utmost importance to you as you will find that you either manage it beautifully or horrendously. You are one of those persons who places a great deal of emphasis on learning through experience, so while you will achieve the status you desire, it will in all probability be later in life rather than sooner. The number eight will be significant as it is considered one of your lucky numbers. Saturn, Capricorn or Aquarius are prominently aspected in your birth horoscope.
