Friday is the sixth day of the week, but used to be the seventh, the Sabbath of the Jewish lunar calendar. The name, Friday, is derived from the Nordic goddess, Frigg, Frigga, Freyja, Freya, or Frija (Germanic), considered to be the mother of all. She is the Goddess of love and war, fertility and death. She is the leader of the Valkyries and the Disir (Divine Grandmothers), and creator of Seidr magic. Her symbols are the cat and the Brisingamen, which is the magic necklace of the rainbow bridge. Freya’s Roman and Greek counterparts are Venus and Aphrodite, goddesses of love and beauty.

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.
