Monday Meaning: The Day Of The Moon
Some cultures consider Mondays to be the first day of the week whilst others consider it the second, after Sundays. Each day of the week is influenced by a different planet and the ruler of this one is the Moon.
The patron goddess of Mondays is Artemis (Greek) or Diana (Roman), the goddess of the hunt.
Monday means respect, power and health along with maternal instinct and sleep. In ancient times it was believed that there were three unlucky Mondays throughout the year, days in which nothing good would take place: the first Monday in April, the second Monday in August and the last Monday in December.
