Goddesses to connect with:
These are Goddesses Of Sun, Life, and Rejuvenation.
Sunday is the day of the Sun, and Surya is the God of the Sun in Hindu tradition. He has the most optimistic and cheerful energy because it is he who gives us the opportunity to be happy and successful. He gives us life forces. This is the day of celebration, love, acceptance, and giving. Sun is a male planet so on this day it is good to pay homage to male energy, to visit and talk to father, serve them as they are representatives of God on Earth. It is also a good day to spend time with husband, visit temples or churches.
Sun is a leader, it is a very active day full of life energy. Sunday is the first day of the week so it is a perfect day to plan a week ahead, or even a month or a year. It is best to stay active this day and avoid being passive or doing nothing. It is the day to celebrate life itself. So make sure to enjoy life, get outside and spend time under the Sun in nature with your family, husband.
It is also a great day to connect with your consciousness and your Soul. You can do it either through some creativity, meditation, or journaling. Any way of self-expressing yourself today would be wonderful. One way to be creative is to make pancakes or crepes today and share them with your family. In fact, this can be a great tradition as pancake represent the Sun, so it is also a way to celebrate Sun. In my family, it has been a tradition for a few years now.
Additionally, try to avoid being alone and feeling lonely. Don’t limit yourself to anything on purpose, and avoid fasting today. It is also not the best day to spend time cleaning your house or go grocery shopping. There are other days of the week for that, but not today. Just put on some pretty orange dress, gold jewelry and go give some gifts to your friends or family. You can make this day a Family Day from now on. Just enjoy life with your loved ones.
Sunday Feminine Practices
On Sunday we focus on the practice of nonjudging and communication with nature.
It is a great day to dream big, make your most daring plans, and set goals. So, you can create a Desire Map. Make sure to find time and spend it in nature with your family, as a practice. It would be great to walk with them along the shore of a sea, lake or the ocean. Visit some park and try to communicate with trees. Touch them and visualize the connection between you and them with your eyes closed. Feel how the energy fills you with power. Let them fill you with the energy of joy and happiness that Sun gives us today.
It is also a great time to practice head massage. Take some light oil and massage your scalp gently. Then enjoy this newly generated feeling of relaxation and serenity.
You can also meditate today, in which case make sure this meditation is about Sun energy and do it before noon. You can chant Sun mantras, practice Surya Namaskar. Working with your ancestry would be great too, especially if you decide to heal relationships with your father. If your relationships with your father are negative or non-existent, Sun will affect you in a negative way, which means you won’t be able to fully express ourselves creatively. You can also choose to find a male figure and help him by serving him unconditionally. It should be a man who has children but has no wife. Donating to churches or temples of the religion or tradition you follow would be great as well.
