Thursday, o how I’ve loved and loathed thee

I have loved and loathed Thursdays for as long as I can remember.

Thursday is the almost-there day, the day before the official start of the weekend.  It’s the anticipation day.  The frustrating why-can’t-it-be-Friday kind of day.

It’s also a wonderful day, a day closer to some much-needed time off for everyone.  A day of expansion, as Jupiter rules Thursday and imbues the day with the energies of extra luck and prosperity.  All we need to do is reach out and grasp it.

Years ago when I worked in retail, it seemed that Thursday brought all of the rudest, most frustratingly abrasive customers out to shop.  It never failed.  Even though I would wake up happy that Thursday had arrived, I ended up worried about what I was going to face when I got to work.  Usually, my worries came true.

It took me years to figure out that my worrying caused the trouble in the first place.  When we send out negative energy, we tend to attract the same thing. That holds true for everything in life, both good and bad.  Thankfully, time is the best teacher and over the years I’ve learned to focus my energy on the good.  Come what may, at least I am prepared to receive goodness.

Nowadays, I anticipate only good things to happen on Thursdays.  Thursday is the precursor day, the day to prepare for down time.  It’s a good day to get tasks accomplished.  Clear your plate on Thursday and fill it with the goodness of the coming weekend.

May this Thursday and every Thursday to come bring each of us a little light and luck.  I know I could certainly use a little good juju.  How about you?
