How to Decipher Secret Messages for Modern Times

It’s Friday, as I write this – ruled by Venus, so its the day of love. As I reflected on that, I remembered a childhood poem:

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go.
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
Is fair and wise and good in every way.

Years ago when I was learning naturopathy, in particular medical herbalism (healing with herbs and flowers) we were told how herbalism was considered witchcraft by the God fearing Christians of the time. Anyone deemed a pagan was to be sentenced under the witches hammer law (for 400 years), often tortured and their life extinguished if they were a witch.

So, to preserve the old ways, the clever people who cared for the earth—AKA the Pagans—cleverly hid healing information inside kids nursery rhymes. Hence, there are some nursery rhymes we sing to our kids and grandkids today that make us think… what the? That’s a bit macabre! Yet all that the old folk were doing was preserving healing knowledge for years to come.

The Kabbalah was one of the earliest forms of religion. Yet it was more a non-secular belief system that people of the time had before being divided up into two schools of thought ie. either mysticism and intuition or Christianity + science; so Kabbalah was a unified non-discriminative and holistic system containing the truth of both schools of thought.

Part of this system describes information that was available to all cultures and civilisation. For example both Middle Eastern astrologists, Indian Ayurvedic astrologers and Chinese astrologers were all aware of planetary knowledge and how that affected an individuals health, emotions and wellbeing (or potential for unwellness) every day. The day a person was born not only dictated one of the 12 sun signs the person would be ‘categorised’ under, but it also started the process of how numbers or numerology fitted into their lives. Each planet related to particular numbers, letters of the alphabet, plants, colours, sounds, emotions, thoughts and actions.

To preserve the old ways, the clever people who cared for the earth cleverly hid healing information inside kids nursery rhymes. Hence, there are some nursery rhymes we sing to our kids and grandkids today that make us think… what the?

So, this little rhyme above and below described what planets ruled that person’s personality the most and what that person’s priorities would be in life.

Let’s look at the poem again.

Monday is moon day. Fair of face reflects the sensitiveness that people ruled by the moon are. The sensitiveness has positive and negative attributes as does everything in life (think Cancerians who are moon ruled) concurrently a moon-day (Monday) in anyone’s week, means this can be a day when they feel more emotional or affected by their emotions than other people. If you are born on a Monday then you might have gotten use to starting your week learning how to harness and work with your emotions. So you might even be better at it than some one born on a Sunday — ruled by the positivity and entrepreneurness  of the sun.

Another example is a person born Wednesday is ruled by Mercury. Mercury rules the nervous system, so can make the individual more prone to over-thinking and melancholic states of mind that can come from such active mental activity.

Monday = Moon
Tuesday = Mars
Wednesday = Mercury
Thursday = Jupiter
Friday = Venus
Saturday = Saturn
Sunday (sabbath day in the poem) = Sun

Reflect again on the day you were born. Google “what day of the week was I born” to get a calendar or key to work this day of the week out.

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go.
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
Is fair and wise and good in every way.

Don’t you love how the old ways hold the truth for today’s world?!
