7 Days of Week (Old)

Days of Week

In the European tradition, the week typically begins with Sunday, Monday, Tuesday etc.

In India, the sequence of days is the same but there is evidence that the week began with Saturday.
The primal force A was linked with
Sat
Satya
Saturn
The sequence thus became Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wedneday, Thursday, Friday.

In China, the 28 Hsiu (mansions of the moon) are arranged assuming a week that begins with Thursday. This gives the sequence:
1. Thursday Jupiter
2. Friday Venus (Shukra)
3. Saturday Saturn
4. Sunday Sun
5. Monday Moon
6. Tuesday Mars
7. Wedneday Mercury


Mani, Tyr, Wotan, Thor, Frigga
