Monday

In the word Monday, we can see part of the word Moon. In the romance languages such as Italian or Spanish, this day of the week is called Lunes and clearly relates to the word lunar. On Mondays, a variety of magick may be worked. Because Monday centers on the energies of the Moon, things like dreams, feminine energy, health, success in spiritual pursuits, domestic matters, and things of family origin are especially important this day.

Mondays are best for love magick and anything concerning home or family, thus old saying, Mondays child is fair of face, which seems clearly to relate to the themes of love and health.

Angels of Monday are Gabriel, Arcan, Missabu, and Abuzaha. Arcan is known as the king of the angels of air and the “ruler” of Monday. Abuzaha (Abuzohar) serves Monday, and is very responsive to invocations and ritual magick. Missabu is a ministering angel of Arcan.

Check whether the moon is waning or waxing to determine what your spell will be. During waning moons, do spells to rid yourself of obstacles or for wisdom and protection. During waxing moons do magic for increase of any kind or to draw something into your life.

On Mondays, the best hour to work is moonrise. Get this information from your local newspaper, astrological calendar, or almanac.

Monday – the Moon’s Day

 Ricordati, la vita è una malattia mortale, per cui bisogna godersela.
Monday – the Moon’s Day

Monday is the first day of the week according to the international standard ISO 8601, but in the US, Canada, and Japan it’s counted as the second day of the week.

Monday is named after the moon.

Monday comes after Sunday and before Tuesday in our modern day Gregorian Calendar.

Naming Monday
The English word Monday was derived from Old English which literally means “moon’s day”.

Middle English – Monday or mone(n)day
Latin – dies lunae – “Day of the moon”
Old Norse – mánadagr, mandag, mánudagur
Old English – mōnandæg or mōndæg
Ancient Greek – hemera selenes – “day of the moon”

First or second day?
Monday is considered the first day of the week according to the international standard ISO 8601. In many cultures and languages, Monday is given a name that means either “second day” marking Sunday to be the first day of the week or a name that means the day after Sunday.

Slavic languages number Monday as the first day, not the second day. Many European countries have calendars that mostly show Monday as the first day of the week.

Depressing “Blue Monday”
Monday used to be called “Blue Monday” because it was a day associated with washing clothes that involved blue dye. However, it now refers to the day when employees have to return to work after the weekend.
Least favorite day

In many cultures, Monday is considered the worst day of the week because it is the first day of the work week. A number of songs often feature Monday as a day of depression, anxiety, or melancholy such as “Monday, Monday” by the Mamas & the Papas in 1966 or “Rainy Days and Mondays” by the Carpenters in 1971, not to mention “I Don’t Like Mondays” by the Boomtown Rats in 1979.

However, Mondays are considered good days for fasting in Judaism and Islam. In the Eastern Orthodox Church Mondays are days in which Angels are commemorated.

Holidays on a Monday
Several holidays always fall on a Monday such as Labor Day, Memorial Day, Columbus Day and Veteran’s Day.
