The Pagans divided their weeks in seven days each day representing a deity. 
  1. Saturday which was the first day of the week (as it still is in Islamic countries) was dedicated to Saturn (Dies Saturni), 
  2. Sunday to Sun (Dies Solis), 
  3. Monday to Moon (Dies Lunae), 
  4. Tuesday to Mars (Dies Martis), 
  5. Wednesday to Mercury (Dies Mercurii), 
  6. Thursday to Jupiter (Dies Jovis), and 
  7. Friday to Venus (Dies Veneris). [1]
Out of this order come the familiar seven Archangels which include Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Raguel, Sariel, and the fallen Lucifer.
