You probably know that Monday is named after the moon and Sunday is named after the sun. You’re also likely to know that every day of the week is astrologically aligned with a particular (astrological) planet. So…this lends a certain vibe to the day. And you can choose outfits and accessories that help you align with this vibe so that your efforts, choices, and desires are fueled with the prevailing planetary energies. I think of it as riding the current of the day, which adds momentum to my look as well as my happiness, well-being, and success. Here’s a quick little reference guide.
Because Sunday is aligned with the sun, its vibe is cleansing and energizing, and it’s an excellent day to wear bright, shiny, and sparkly things. Gold jewelry, as well as sunny gemstones such as topaz, citrine, and sunstone, will be likely to feel just right. Colors associated with bright light and heat – like white, orange, yellow, and red – are also especially appropriate.
The soft, receptive, and altogether lunar qualities of Monday lend themselves to silver jewelry and gemstones reminiscent of moonlight, such as moonstone, opal, and labradorite. Colors that will align you with the day include white, cream, silver, grey, lavender, blue, and black.
The passionate, confrontational energy of mars makes Tuesday a great day to wear flinty and/or deep red gems such as obsidian, pyrite, and garnet. Harness the courageous, go-getter energy of the day with colors like red, maroon, burgundy, charcoal grey, and black.
Mercury gives Wednesday a communicative, quickly moving, and harmonizing vibe. Gemstones that align with the energy of the day include fluorite, amethyst, and clear quartz. Colors that feel right include a variety of balanced or muted hues such as lavender, purple, light orange, yellow, grey, light blue, and off-white.
Expansive Jupiter brings prosperity and abundance into focus on Thursday. Generally, a feeling of luxury would be an excellent theme for any ensemble you create, and great jewelry choices might include amethyst, aventurine, and emerald. Colors that fuel the positive momentum of the day are lush hues like green, teal, turquoise, purple, lavender, and cerulean blue.
Friday is aligned with Venus and is therefore the day of love! Softening and heart-opening gemstones would be lovely, such as rose quartz, lepidolite, and ruby. Think Valentine’s Day when it comes to colors: pink, red, fuschia, purple, white, and cream.
Last but not least, Saturday‘s Saturn-infused energies are all about boundaries and limits: but not in a bad way. For example, everyone loves a weekend, even though it’s an END! Indeed, establishing positive boundaries and letting go of that which no longer serves us are two important musts for our sanity and happiness. Gemstones of the day include things like selenite, smoky quartz, and tourmaline. Colors that often feel perfect are things like black, grey, dark blue, and purple.
