Born on Monday – The Empath Mum
Goddess: Luna and Selene (Roman and Greek goddesses)
Monday’s mum is governed by her emotions, in a good way. Sensitive, caring, nurturing, and in tune with her emotions, this mum is empathetic and can teach her children to listen to and get in tune with their own emotions. A born mother, she always wants to make sure that everyone is happy, healthy, fed, and cared for. Monday mothers are very family-oriented and try to instil this quality into their brood.
#mumgoals: No one in the family wants for anything with a Monday mum; she’s already taken care of it.
#mumproblems: Could be a little overbearing chasing the family around with food and cardigans, and in all the kerfuffle, might forget to take care of her own needs.
Born on Wednesday – The Erudite Mum
Gods: Mercury and Hermes (Roman and Greek gods of commerce)
A little bit of a bookworm, this mama is curious, studious, and loves to learn. She doesn’t have a problem with nestling down on the couch once the kids are asleep and getting lost in a good book, fully immersing herself in that world, even if there are toys strewn all over the place–they can always be tidied later. A Wednesday mum takes everything with a pinch of salt, loves a good chit-chat and is great with people.
#mumgoals: An airy-fairy, fun mum who helps her kids learn to focus on the important, enjoy the good things in life and sieve out unnecessary negativity.
#mumproblems: A little bit ditsy, but in a good way (think Phoebe from Friends), your kid might just find the remote control in their lunchbox.
Born on Friday – The Creative Mum
Goddesses: Venus and Aphrodite (Roman and Greek goddesses of love and beauty)
A child with a difficult art project is laughing if they have a Friday mum. Creative and artsy, there is no end to this mum’s idea portal. The romantic sort, your kids’ bedrooms look like something from Disneyland and you’re always preparing little surprises for them, and they love you for it. You’re inspired by love and beauty, and love to make everything around you look nice, including yourself.
#mumgoals: This mum is sociable, throws great parties, and her kids, house, and herself, are always on fleek.
#mumproblems: May focus a little too much on what other people think, and can be a tad narcissistic.
Born on Saturday – The Independent Mum
Gods: Saturn (Roman god of agriculture), Cronus (original Greek god, father of Zeus)
The Saturday mum means business. She’s a perfectionist, has high standards, and her yes mean yes, and her no, no. She is confident in herself and her choices, extremely independent and self-sufficient, and doesn’t like to rely on anyone else other than herself. She’ll always find the practical way to do something, perhaps bypassing creativity, and her kids will always feel like they have a healthy home and sturdy base.
#mumgoals: Kids can rely on the capable and dependable Saturday mum and learn to be confident and independent also.
#mumproblems: Doesn’t trust easily, and can seem a little too strict, serious, standoffish or cold with people she doesn’t know well.
Born on Sunday – The Go-Getter Mum
Gods: Sol and Helios (Roman and Greek gods of the sun)
This mum is independent, self-sufficient, generous, bubbly and loves to help their kids and others in any way they can. People born on a Sunday are known to be born leaders and lucky, but maybe that’s due to their constant positive-thinking which helps them get their own way, and get what they want in life. Just like their governing planet, the sun, these go-getters are bright and make their presence known, and they like their kids to shine also.
#mumgoals: This mum is completely happy in her own company, and trusts her ability to do everything for her family.
#mumproblems: Even though she’s nice to people and loves to help out, her love of ‘alone-time’ could be construed as unsociable.
