Gemstones for the Days of the WeekThe days of the week were originally named for the sun, the moon, and the five known planets. Wearing gemstones associated with the days of the week will allow you to invoke the energy of the corresponding planets and dieties.

 

 The planets that the week days were named after are associated with particular gods depending upon the culture.  For example, the Greeks, the Romans, and Germanic peoples each had their own gods associated with the different days of the week.

To invoke the energy of the planets or deities listed below, wear or carry one of the listed stones on the corresponding day of the week.  Wearing crystal jewelry (or keeping a stone in your pocket) in this way is also considered a talisman of good luck and protection.

These stones can also help you ease into your day and more easily work through whatever the day may bring.  To go deeper into the day’s energy vibration, try meditating with your chosen stone on your third eye chakra, create a crystal grid, or place the stone in a prominent position on your altar or in your sacred space.

Another interesting way to use these stones is to find out what day of the week you were born on and use the corresponding stone as a personal talisman.  

For example, I was born on a Friday, Freya’s Day.  There’s something fascinating that happens when we are born into this world…and the cosmos imprints that energy onto our spirit from the exact moment we are born.  If you embrace that energy and tap into the strength it can give you, you can create and do amazing things.

So, if I wanted to strengthen my understanding of the archetypal energy of love and beauty, enhance my connection to Venus (or Aphrodite or Freya), or utilize the positive aspects of the planet Venus, I would carry or wear an Emerald, Copper, Chrysoprase, Rose Quartz, or Pink Tourmaline at all times as a personal talisman.  Wearing and carrying these stones as personal talismans will strengthen the positive attributes of this archetype and balance its negative attributes.

    Wow! Interesting! I was born on a Thursday (aquamarine) in March (also aquamarine). I guess my stone is aquamarine, lol.

    I was also born on a Friday. I have always wanted an emerald. Guess this is the year to order one I can wear. I also read that Friday is a lucky day for sowing seeds. Perhaps my emerald can be my “seed” gemstone as in, “What will I sow this Friday?” Also one of the first deities I was called to was Venus – Aphrodite, whose day is also Friday.

    Thanks for the article and all the good information you share.

    1. Lauren Love & Light Support on January 12, 2018 at 5:46 am

      Oh my, LOVE those synchronicities! We hope you’re able to find the perfect emerald this year– you’ll have to let us know how it goes <3 <3

      We're so glad you enjoyed the article. Crystal blessings, Mari! <3

    Susan

    1. Lauren Love & Light Support on January 15, 2018 at 6:53 am

      Hi Susan! The crystals we recommend for people born on a Tuesday are ruby, red garnet, red jasper, carnelian, and sardonyx <3 Lots of fiery red energy as Mars is the celestial body associated with Tuesday. But of course-- we also always recommend that you carry any crystals that call you to each day! <3 Crystal blessings.
