"Mr. Moon's Monday orange self energies at the hara (svaadisthan chakra) attract and call for name, fame, appreciation, and of course a pleasurable sex life. But there is a lot more to Monday than that."
While the external radiance of Moon’s day is a pearl white, the energies of the Moon are orange and influence the water element. The orange moon energy is the influencing controller of the fickle, changeable, personal identity ego chakra also known as the svaadisthan—the place of the self. It also influences the sex chakra.Moon related articles:
The moon reflects the light of the sun, transforming the bright sun rays into nourishing energies.
Kṛṣṇa says, "I enter
the planets and the earth, and maintain and sustain all the living entities by My
potency, and by becoming the Moon and through its life-giving rays I provide
the essential nourishing juice of life in plants, herbs and vegetables." BG 15.13 Bhagavad Gita for All
In recent times Monday, Somvaar, the day of the reflected sun’s radiance from the moon, has been given by many the position of the first day of the week rather than the day of the sun. Today, most calendars reference Monday as the first day of the week, but this is factually incorrect.

Starting work one day late in the natural universal cycle of energy growth is also the cause of Monday-morning depressions. Another fundamental cure for this is to follow the work week cycle of the ancients: do some official work even if at home. Not to ruin a weekend, but a little bit of work--say an hour or two of work achievement on Sunday.
Making Monday the first working day of the week instead of Sunday, sends an overlay of ego-based
energies to the entire week, creating the grounds for easy
confrontations, conflict and stress.In traditional societies, Saturday had been a day of rest and personal development, with Sunday being the supercharged jump-start for the week, whose energies remain active the longest in the full cycle of a day.

Then again, there are always certain persons who will rub one up the wrong way no matter what one does! In such a case the immediate solution is to take control of and moderate the drivers to mental-emotional imbalance. The mind and the thought processes are air driven, while emotions are driven additionally by the fire element.
Emotional thinking can be calmed by controlling the air element that feeds both the emotional and mental complexes, as well as by controlling the anger-breath or air that is driven by the fire energies of the sun.
The old adage for one to count to 10 before speaking when one is upset or angry works if one takes one’s attention away from the upset. If one focuses one’s attention at the nostrils to become aware of the flow of the incoming and outgoing breaths, the mind and emotions begin to calm down rapidly.

Enabling the fire of intelligence rather than the fire of emotions can be quick-started daily. One can do this by giving oneself three salt-water tilakas gently with the ball of the right thumb. (A pinch of salt in 50-75 mls water: 1/8th teaspoon salt in 4 to 5 ounces of water).
Chanting the 3-syllable universal energy mantra of ‘Aum’ or ‘Om’ tends to align the elements of air, fire and bodily fluids to a harmonized state.

The ancient science of health and longevity—Ayurveda, recommends the exposing of the body to the early morning reddish-pink (saffron orange) rays of the sun for improving one’s general health and in order to be cured of liver disease, especially jaundice and hepatitis, which is emotional indigestion at the energy level.
Next week in this series 'Weekdays' -- The day of Mars' or Mangal--"Tuesday" or "Mangalvaar"
"Tuesday’s energies are orange-red in color and represent the energies of the planet Mars that has a fiery red aura. Mars also represents the raw life force energy at the root chakra that resonates with the earth element which stores karmic records and generates material forms."
The first ray of light from the eastern sun at the dawn of the universe energized the first day of the week—Sun’s day.
It is natural then that Sunday has for long been considered the first day of the week in the ancient traditional Vedic, Christian, Islamic, Hebrew calendars.
Each day of the week makes its unique contribution to the energy vibrations of the universe. The color, the sounds and characteristics of the weekday’s energies affect all living things and exert their influence on inert matter as well.

The start of each day is considered as from sunrise to the next sunrise.
The modern convenience of calculating days by a clock from midnight to midnight is not representative of the day’s energy signature.
Using a local area time-zone standard for any place, the following time references may be kept in mind.
At around 4 in the morning or about 45 minutes before local sunrise time, the energies of the new day begin come into great strength. Between 4 pm and 4:30 p.m. in the afternoon, the energies of the next day following begin to appear and the energies of the current day begin to decline very gradually.
The exception to this last observation is Saturday.
The stabilizing energies of Saturn begin to moderate and decline significantly only after sunset on Saturday.
The Sunday energies start gathering great strength between seven and eight pm on Saturday and become very powerfully manifest by 4 am.
Other weekday energies are not as powerful at 4 am as compared to Sunday 4 am.
