Friday falls at the end of the work week for many of us, and that means we get a chance to relax for a little bit! Mark your Fridays with colors like pink and aqua, and metals such as copper. This is a day ruled by the planet Venus, so it should be no surprise that Venus and Aphrodite—goddesses of love and beauty—are associated with Fridays. This is a day named for the Norse goddess Freyja*, so be sure to take a moment to honor her as well.
Gemstones associated with Friday include coral, emerald and rose quartz, and plants like strawberries, apple blossoms and feverfew are also related. This is a good day to do spellwork associated with family life and fertility, sexuality, harmony, friendship, growth. Take advantage of Friday’s correspondences and plant a seed, make something grow, and enjoy your blessings.
*Note: There are a lot of disputes as to the origins of the word Friday because there is still a great deal of discussion as to whether it was named for Freyja or Frigga, and whether they were the same deity or two separate ones. Some scholars believe that while they may have eventually become two distinctly different goddesses, they could have had their origins in a single, common Proto-Germanic deity.
There’s a reason out of all the days of the week, Friday is commonly dubbed ‘date night’. Why? Because Fridays are overseen by the angel Anael, who’s name means ‘Star of love’. Anael is one of the angels considered to have helped with the creation of the heavens and earth. If Anael doesn’t convince you that Fridays are for lovers, then perhaps knowing this day is ruled by Venus might give you confirmation. Venus is symbolic of love, sensuality, creativity and relationships. Of course, love and loving isn’t exclusive to Friday. Everyday of the week is an opportunity for love. However, Friday is most auspicious for connecting with others on a loving level. This doesn’t mean you have to have a date, or a mate. You can augment your intensity of love on Friday by showing affection to your pets, your family and/or your friends. You get the idea.
