zodiac sun day

The Day You Were Born

*Note. This is a very minor factor in the human psyche, and not technically a component of the natal chart. Each day of the week has an energy which it imparts to individuals born on it, but it is vague and often a subtle undertone or theme rather than a prominent, overt, direct influence. This is closely related to the “mundane” matters of the 6th house, the everyday aspect of our lives, and how you approach or behave in that area. The planet ruling your day of birth may be interpreted to have increased energy or importance in your natal chart.


SUNDAY || Sun

People born on Sunday tend to have well-defined identities, or at least a strong sense of self, and they deeply value their individuality. They can be very creative individuals, full of vitality and unique personal power, and they’re often well-liked for their radiance. Above all, their opinion of & belief in themselves drives them in their everyday lives. Their actions revolve around independent choice.


MONDAY || Moon

People born on Monday tend to be rather sensitive and emotionally responsive. Their feelings are deep & strong, and typically have a significant influence over their actions. Privacy and comfort are priorities in their everyday lives; they strive to feel safe, and may be reserved. They can be profoundly compassionate. They value their memories, which are usually vivid & clear, and protect their history.


TUESDAY || Mars

People born on Tuesday tend to be energetic and forthright, with a vital intensity and passionate disposition that carries them throughout their everyday lives. Taking action and being decisive are important to them; strength of character, ambition, and progress help define who they are. They enjoy exhilaration and feed off adrenaline, so they could be reckless thrill-seekers if they’re able.


WEDNESDAY || Mercury

People born on Wednesday tend to be thoughtful and inventive. Their minds are central to their identity; the cultivation, communication, and manifestation of ideas is often what their everyday lives revolve around. Exchanges are crucial to their well-being, as conversation is their main avenue of self-expression. They tend to be busy-bodies, focused on a perpetually-flowing daily process.


THURSDAY || Jupiter

People born on Thursday tend to have “big” personalities; they’re often open, expressive, & engaging. Being a part of the world around them is vital to their happiness, & that is what their everyday lives revolve around. The pleasures of life are their hobbies. Their minds & hearts are expansive, giving them grand ideas & grand connectivity. The deeper meaning of things is important to them.


FRIDAY || Venus

People born on Friday tend to be charming & generally likeable. They’re polite, graceful, and easygoing, with rather “breezy” and warm personalities which attract others to them. They have a good sense of style & know how to present themselves in appealing ways. Beauty, indulgence, pleasure, & self-esteem are what their everyday lives revolve around. Their values are important to them.


SATURDAY || Saturn

People born on Saturday tend to have solid, responsible personalities. They are focused, determined, and disciplined. They may be reserved individuals with anxious dispositions or a cool, collected mien typically mistaken for coldness. Their strong, definite ambitions and continuous self-improvement are what their everyday lives revolve around. They are dignified, independent hard-workers.

The Signs as Alt/Rock Bands
  • Aries: The Strokes
  • Taurus: Gorillaz
  • Gemini: My Chemical Romance
  • Cancer: Green Day
  • Leo: Weezer
  • Virgo: Panic! at the Disco
  • Libra: The Front Bottoms
  • Scorpio: All Time Low
  • Sagittarius: Muse
  • Capricorn: Fall Out Boy
  • Aquarius: Mayday Parade
  • Pisces: Nirvana

Everyone experiences days of the week differently, and a minor factor which can play a part in that is their ruling planets, more specifically which days of the week share a planet with which houses. The days of the week elevate, draw attention to, or somehow emphasize the energies of the planets & thus activate (to some extent) whatever area(s) of your chart relate to them. These days will likely be the most active, productive, and/or conscious for said areas of life.

Sunday: ruled by the sun (Leo)
Monday: ruled by the moon (Cancer)
Tuesday: ruled by Mars (Aries & Scorpio)
Wednesday: ruled by Mercury (Gemini & Virgo)
Thursday: ruled by Jupiter (Sagittarius & Pisces)
Friday: ruled by Venus (Taurus & Libra)
Saturday: ruled by Saturn (Capricorn & Aquarius)

A few examples: someone with the sun in their 6th house may feel most healthy or energetic on Sundays, and they may get the majority of their chores & to-do tasks done then. Someone with Cancer on the 3rd house cusp may be more inclined to communicate (especially about their feelings) on Mondays. Someone with Taurus on the 12th house cusp may be more likely to indulge in their desire for solitude on Fridays and treat themselves to some “down-time.”

Again, this plays quite a minor role, but it can be interesting to see how your week may be affected in this way, particularly in combination with transits. Longer transits, especially involving the personal planets, can be interpreted differently or with a lot more detail when you keep this in mind – each day will bring out a new aspect of the transit in a cycle, depending on natal placements.

Raise your hand if you’re guilty of the #coverbuy. You know, the book you bought without any regard to genre, summary, or $$ in the bank. It’s ok – we’ve all felt the irresistible lure of a particularly gorgeous book cover, and in fact, we think it’s something to be celebrated. Read on for some of the covers from 2015 that made us stop, skip a heartbeat, and remember that all things good and beautiful come from bookshelves:

1. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

“An intoxicating gem of a story” deserves an intoxicating gem of a cover. Mission accomplished. This book looks like it belongs as a decoration in the palace of the Caliph of Khorasan, which the main character Shazi gets to know quite well on her quest to seek revenge on the man who had her best friend and so many other girls killed.

2. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Ok this cover just feels alive. Like if you touch it you might burn yourself. In a good way. The “omg what did I just read because I’m pretty sure my life will never be the same” kind of way. 

3. Soundless by Richelle Mead

Oh hi. I like your flowy gown/cape/dress. And your intense stare. Rule of thumb: an epic fantasy deserves an epic cover. Plus, the iconic mountains in the background give you a hint of what the story was inspired by – ancient Chinese myth.

4. A Book of Spirits and Thieves by Morgan Rhodes

Take me away to wherever this awesomeness this is – even it means getting whisked away from real life to ancient Mytica, just as Becca does in the story.

5. Mosquitoland by David Arnold

I’ve never seen this exact shade of turquoise before, but I am now planning on painting 75% of the walls in my house this color. Also, who can resist the girl on the bus? This cover SCREAMS witty and emotional road trip novel.

6. Zodiac and Wandering Star by Romina Russell

You had me at mix of breathtaking constellations and ominous outer space galactic splendor. These covers perfectly capture the magic that is Rho’s adventures in the 13 Horoscope houses of the Zodiac galaxy.

7. I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson

Look closely, book lovers: this is evidence that miracles DO happen. The hardcover and paperback covers for this book are both irresistible works of art, and do the tidal wave of emotion that awaits inside justice. 

8. The Appearance of Annie Van Sinderen by Katherine Howe

Somewhat creepy? Yep. Going to acquire it at any cost to read the mystery inside? Yep. 

9. Juniors by Kaui Hart Hemmings

This cover induces instant transportation back to summer. And guess what? So does the story: it’s a tale of friendship, identity, and transformation set on the beaches of Hawaii.

AND so you can be on the lookout in 2016, here are some upcoming stunners to expect come the new year:

10. Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke

Holy book gods. Will this be coming in a print? A textile of some sort that I can wear every single day? Good news: the beautiful, haunting story inside is just as incredible.

11. The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman

Oh. Oh my. This feels like a dark adventure I’d like to get in on. Will parasols be provided?

12. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

I’m pretty sure THIS is exactly what my high school english teacher meant about something having an “ominous” tone. Storm clouds, choppy waters, life savers drifting around…yep, if I don’t read this and find out what happened, I will never sleep again.

13. The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

That lamp. Those stars. If this is what I think it is…the newest YA retellings of all YA retellings is in the works. If I had 3 wishes, they’d all be directly related to obtaining this book.

14. The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry

This looks like a magnificent painting I could hang on my wall. But wait, are those wisps of smoke? Creepy…

15. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

Maybe I’m not an artist but I can feel in every fiber of my being that everything is right here. The colors. The font. The moonlight on the sand dune. 

The first step to recovery is admitting that you’ve been seduced by a book cover.
