The unique energy of each day of the week
Have you noticed that each day of the week has a unique rhythm to it?
Named after a Greek, Roman or Norse god or goddess, each day contains a powerful archetypal energy.
When I became a business owner and started setting up my work week incorporating the energies of each day, it became a game-changer for my business and my wellbeing.
For example, Monday is the Moon’s Day. Moon energy is feminine, intuitive, creative, emotional and introspective.
No wonder I resisted plunging into Monday meetings all those years in the corporate world!
So I stopped seeing clients on Mondays. It became my “transition day” to reflect, plan out the week, write, create content, and reconnect with myself, especially if I’ve had a busy social weekend.
I also have a 1-hour, deep-dive phone call on Monday mornings with two of my closest friends where we mastermind together and share our personal & business desires, reflections and insights. A ritual we’ve continued for more than 8 years now.
Tuesday is Mars’ Day. Named after the Roman god of war, Mars is about action, vitality, and passionately going for what you want.
No surprise that Tuesday is statistically the most productive day of the week! I see clients on Tuesdays, do outreach, work on projects, and, basically, GSD (get sh*t done).
Wednesday is Mercury’s Day. (Miercoles in Spanish). Mercury, the swift messenger of the gods, is all about communication and mental energy.
It’s a great day to send out your e-newsletter, speak to groups, create a lengthy post on social media, and develop curriculum. I also see clients and schedule my Soulful Speakers group coaching sessions on Wednesdays.
Thursday is Thor’s Day, the Norse god of strength and protection. In most Romance languages, the day is named after the Roman god Jupiter, which is associated with growth, expansion, healing, prosperity, good fortune and miracles.
Thursdays are another great day for client sessions, meetings, networking and sending emails–as, in my experience, most people tend to be in an expansive, positive mood. (Hoping you are in a good mood while reading this!)
Friday is Venus’ Day and named after the Germanic goddess Frigga. Venus energy is about love, beauty, luxury and abundance.
Friday mornings I typically put on uplifting tunes, wrap up loose ends from the work week, and tidy up my office. I often schedule my workshops and webinars on Friday mornings, too, because of its “feel good” vibe.
Then, I love having lunch with my husband at the beach (beauty & romance) and taking off in the afternoons for boogie boarding, self-care or a shopping treat.
Saturday is Saturn’s Day. Saturn represents authority, discipline, hard work and commitment. It’s a great day to complete things and take care of details. Think home projects, errands, a morning workout. Saturn is also about accomplishment and mastery, so it’s a wonderful day to focus on your dreams and take steps toward being more masterful in your life.
Sunday is, of course, the Sun’s Day! A time to be outside if the weather is good, play, rest, rejuvenate, and come together with family and friends–whether it’s going to the farmers market, hiking, attending church, watching sports or sharing a meal.
What are you noticing about each day of the week in your entrepreneurial journey so far?
Take time this week to tune in, and notice what you notice with each day’s unique energy.

The most important thing is to appreciate the gifts that each day brings and to find the natural rhythm that works best for precious you.
