DAYS OF THE WEEK—THEIR IMPORTANCE AT THE NATAL HOUR.
A child born on Sunday shall be of long life and obtain riches.
A child born on Monday will be weak and effeminate.
Tuesday is more unfortunate still, though a child born on this day may, by extraordinary vigilance, conquer the inordinate desires to which he will be subject; still, in his violent attempts to gratify them, he will be in danger of a violent death.
The child born on Wednesday will be given to a studious life, and shall reap great profit therefrom.
A child born on Thursday shall attain great honor and dignity.
He who calls Friday his natal day shall be of a strong constitution, and perhaps addicted to the pleasures of love.
Saturday is another ill-omened day; most children born on this day will be of heavy, dull, and dogged disposition.
As a person born on Saturday, I object! (Okay, maybe I am a little dogged.) And if you're born on a Tuesday? My sympathies to you!
Even if you aren't writing an historical novel, the Gutenberg Project can provide endless distractions from whatever work you are avoiding at the moment. I highly recommend it.
