Planetary rulers of the days of the week

"Monday’s Child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s Child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s Child is full of woe,
Thursday’s Child has far to go,
Friday’s Child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s Child works hard for a living,
But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
Is fair and wise and good and gay.”

The ancient Babylonians chose to organize their calendar around 7 days of the week, and each day corresponds to one of the seven “planets” visible to the naked eye. [Planets is in quotations because two—the Sun and the Moon—are technically not planets (they’re luminaries).]

Monday (lundi in French) is ruled by the Moon. ”Monday’s child is fair of face” might refer to the sensitivity and youthfulness associated with the Moon.

Tuesday (mardi in French)  is ruled by Mars. ”Tuesday’s child is full of grace” might be more aptly interpreted as full of energy and movement.

Wednesday (mercredi in French) is ruled by Mercury. ”Wednesday’s child is full of woe” might be interpreted as a person who worries or thinks too much.

Thursday (jeudi in French) is ruled by Jupiter. ”Thursday’s child has far to go” might thus be interpreted as a person who will travel and learn.

Friday (vendredi in French) is ruled by Venus. “Friday’s child is loving and giving” might refer to the Venus nature, that is, a person who is loving and receptive to love.

Saturday (samedi in French) is ruled by Saturn. ”Saturday’s child works hard for a living” thus might refer to the Saturnine nature which is rather serious and responsible.

Sunday (dimanche in French) is ruled by the Sun. ”But the child born on the Sabbath Day is fair and wise and good and gay” might refer to the magnanimous Sun nature.

Astrologers generally pay more attention to the ruling planets in a natal chart. That is, the planet that rules the sign on your Ascendant and the planet that rules the sign of your Sun. For example, if your Ascendant is Aries, Mars is the ruling planet of your Ascendant since Mars is the natural ruler of Aries. If your Sun is in Taurus, then Venus is your Sun’s ruling planet since Venus is the natural ruler of Taurus.

(Also, can anyone tell me what comes after the voiced velar approximant? Because I can’t get past it and I’ve already wasted enough time for one day. I’m omitting the symbol because I figure that might count as a spoiler, but if you want to know what a voiced velar approximant looks like, a quick google will tell you.)

The signs as presented in the 'Tales of the Zodiac' series.

Aries - A chestnut-haired amnesiac known simply as ‘Ram’. He is so named for the mysterious Ram symbol tattooed on to his arm. A ferocious, passionate warrior with an abnormally high pain threshold, his tale is a voyage of self-discovery.

Taurus - A jolly, gargantuan tribal leader called Ser Torryan. Renowned throughout the kingdom as a great poet, singer, gourmand and warrior, he seems to be an impregnable force for good in this darkest of times. His tale begins when he is stirred from the safety of his fortress by a threat to his family.

Gemini - A silver-haired, silver tongued cleric called Brother Gemin. A quick-witted albino with a genius level IQ, he makes and breaks kings from the shadows. His tale begins on the fateful night he was born and abandoned to the wilderness as a freak.

Cancer - A moon-faced maiden called Selene. Raised as a playmate of the emperor, she becomes a stand-in mother figure to him. Capable of great ferocity and weakness, often in the same breath, her capacity for self-sacrifice and martyrdom means that her tale will play a pivotal role in the fate of civilisation.

Leo - The flamboyant child emperor of Brightstone called Leo, the son of the sun. He is kind-hearted child who’s ego has been distorted by the flatterers and deceivers that surround him. Possessed with nothing but a desire to lead people into brighter times, his tale concerns the conflict between the lies and the reality of Godhood, of the difference between saviours and charlatans.

Virgo - King Arthur’s sharp and severe adviser, Lady Vesta. She is a mysterious solemn character of almost indeterminate age and gender. As private as she is seemingly emotionless, her tale is a tale of someone who will do what most be done, irregardless of reputation.

Libra - King Arthur’s eldest son, the kind-hearted, high-minded prince Libran. He is a young man haunted by the desire to be fair. Stuck somewhere between kind-hearted idealist and scatter-brained procrastinator, he needs to pull himself together if he is going to lead his kingdom out of the darkness.

Scorpio - An enigmatic savage girl called Shara who seems to play by her own set of rules. Is she driven or is she obsessive? Is she the warmest person in existence? Or the coldest? No one seems to know. Her tale is a voyage of private passion, of fixation, of vengeance.

Sagittarius - A chivalrous adventuring knight called Ser Cai. He seems so handsome and charming that he may have just stepped out the pages of old-fashioned chivalric scripture. But this is also his weakness, for his tale lies in a world blurred between his idealist aspirations and the cold reality of life. 

Capricorn - A miserable but socially-mobile peasant child called Gruff, latterly Ser Gruff. His dour dogmatism makes him an enemy of the king and pretty much everyone else he meets. However, his gutsy determination and unflinchingly fixed world-view help him to grind through whatever obstacles people place in his way. His tale is a tale of grim determination against all odds.

Aquarius - King Arthur’s eldest daughter, the rebellious ‘Lady of the Lake’. Disinherited by the king for her flagrant disobedience, she now provides one of the largest threats to the throne. Despite loving her brother, she refuses to accept the primogeniture custom of male inheritance and lingers aloof in her own independent lake-land state. Her tale is a tale of endeavour and innovation, of a fight for equality. 

Pisces - A pure-hearted, kind-natured fish maid called Dynwen. When she meets Lord Leo for the first time she becomes his greatest devotee. Her tale is a tale of the places that love can take you.

Masculine & Feminine 

Different energies can lead to a challenging combination. One individual is primarily focused on the world inside them, the other is focus on the world around them. The more introverted of the two may find it frustrating when the other seems so unaware of their own feelings, or seems preoccupied with things they see to be trivial. This person often requires alone time to feel ready to face the world, and find it frustrating when the other “demands” action, activities, and social interaction on a higher level than they may desire. On the other hand, the more extroverted of the two may find it frustrating when the other seems to busy being pensive to interact with them. This person thrives on social interaction, activities, and being high- energy, and may find it frustrating when the other appears to “lazy” to spend time with them. If they can get past the innate differences, they can find a rewarding partnership. The Masculine sign can show the Feminine one how to be more comfortable among their peers, and the Feminine sign can show the Masculine one how to be content in isolation.

Seed To Sprout


Today I scattered my dry seeds

All over my little garden

The soil is moist

It breathes with love of gemination

Sending sparks of rebirth into the natural world

From seed to sprout is what tomorrow will bring

The sun shall shine all over the garden

Penetrate life into the sleeping seeds

Engulfed by the dark moist soil

For tomorrow the lifeless seed

Will get out of the shell and sing out

Hz. Lokman a.s oğluna şöyle nasihat etmiştir:
Ey oğulcuğum! Dünya, içinde pek çok insanın boğulduğu derin bir deniz gibidir. Bu denizde gemin takva olsun. Yükün Allah’a iman, yelkenin de tevekkül olsun ki, kurtuluşa eresin. Aksi halde kurtuluş bekleme!

vinterblod asked:

Do you agree or disagree to the statement that religion and geminism contradict themselves? And why do you think so?

I am assuming you mean “feminism” when you said “geminism.”

Here is my take as a non-practicing Catholic radical feminist: All agents of socialization are misogynist in nature. Religion is an agent of socialization, just as family, peers, education, media, government etc. This is because 1. we live in a patriarchy/gendered hierarchy and 2. gender is perhaps the greatest influence on our socialization. To say that religion contradicts feminism is poor analysis. A better understanding of this is as follows: no agents of socialization are immune to patriarchy as the largest hierarchy in our society is that of gender. All agents of socialization exist within a misogynist prism. To say religion is contradictory to feminism is to say all agents of socialization are, which is a true statement.
