Mother's Day, obviously as the name depicts, is a special day dedicated to celebrating mothers and motherhood. The day is typically celebrated on the second Sunday in May in many countries round he globe such as the United States, Canada, Australia, and many of Europe. The day is a time for children to pay homage to their mothers, grandmothers, and other mother figures expressing their gratitude and appreciation for all the hard work and sacrifices that they have made to raise their kids.

The history of the Day dates back to early periods when people honored mother goddesses in their respective cultures. However, the modern version of the holiday has its very roots in the United States. In 1908, a woman named Anna Jarvis set up a memorial for her mother, who had passed away 3 years earlier. Jarvis wanted to honor her mother and all mothers living in this world by creating a special day to celebrate them. She worked hard and left no stone unturned to make the Day a recognized holiday by 1914, it had become a national holiday in the United States.

Today, the holy Day is celebrated in many different ways around the world. Some people give their mothers flowers, cards, or various gifts, while others take their mothers out to brunch or cook a special dish for them. In many families, the Day is a time for everyone to come together and spend quality time with their mothers. That means going for a walk, watching a movie, or just sitting and chatting with her.

Has The Day Any Astrological Significance?

The very Day does not have any astrological significance as a whole as it is absolutely a secular holiday that is not associated with any particular religious or astrological tradition. It is simply a day set aside to honor and celebrate mothers and motherhood. 

But some people may choose to celebrate the Day in conjunction with spiritual or astrological beliefs, and may use the occasion to express gratitude and appreciation for the divine femininity. 

Which Planet is Taken for Mother?

While discussing on Mother’s Day the question must arise in mind which astrological planet   symbolizes mother as a whole. From astrology it is known that Venus is the mother for the day-borns, while Moon, is the mother for night-borns.

For those born between sun rise and sun set, Venus is their Mother. Again, the 4th house in astrology hints at the childhood, emotions, upbringing, inner emotional security and attachment. This house also nurtures the domestic life, including sweet relations with one’s mother.


Mother's day is the worldwide celebration of womanhood and is a special day for all the mothers around the world as they are honored by their children.
