Are You Both Born On
Compatible Days?

Ancient and Medieval astrologers assigned planets to the days of the week and the hours of the days.

The real origin of this 'planetary calendar' is unknown but this goes way back to Babylonian astrologers.

Today, this method is not so much used any longer, except perhaps, in horary astrology.

There are 7 calendar days and 7 'planets' (not taking into account the invisible generational planets and counting the Lights, the Sun and the Moon as planets).

Each 'planet' thus rules a day.

There is an old poem or rhyme that goes as follows:

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,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

If you 'translate' this poem into astrological language we get the following rulerships:

The Moon rules Mondays
Mars rules Tuesdays
Mercury rules Wednesdays
Jupiter rules Thursdays
Venus rules Fridays
Saturn rules Saturdays
The Sun rules Sundays

Planets have affinities or friendships, like the zodiac signs.

Some zodiac sign combos match better, get on better than others and so do the planets.

The introvert, sensitive and domestic Moon seldom gets on well with extravert, flamboyant and outdoorsy Jupiter, for example.

In compatibility analysis between two people, the day of birth of the persons therefore matters.

If you are born on a compatible day, according to the planetary rulers, you are better off than when your days don't match at all.

The importance of this method should not be overrated though but it may add some weight to an already difficult relationship.

Also, the days that don't match at all (the extremes or worst days) often work out more prominently and powerfully.

Some days (and rulers) are just more neutral, indifferent and work out less powerfully towards each other.

What are the most (in)compatible days?

If you are looking for the most compatible day, go for a partner who is born on the very same day as yours!

The next best day and the worst day are as follows:

next best day: Monday
worst day: Saturday

next best day: Tuesday
worst day: Friday

next best day: Sunday
worst day: Wednesday

next best day: Friday
worst day: Thursday

next best day: Friday
worst day: Monday

next best day: Thursday
worst day: Tuesday

next best day: Friday
worst day: Sunday
