Absolutely love the name “water star”, gives me a reason associated with Himself for my love of Wednesday’s(outside of Odin), and owls. I thought the owls were Freyja’s but there was the nagging feeling that it wasn’t her alone.
I’m really loving my 3am wake up calls from my Divine Family. I have learnt something new pretty much the whole week.

In ancient China, Mercury was known as Chen Xing (辰星), the Hour Star. It was associated with the direction north and the phase of water in the Wu Xing.[109] Modern Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Vietnamese cultures refer to the planet literally as the “water star” (水星), based on the Five elements.[110] Hindu mythology used the name Budha for Mercury, and this god was thought to preside over Wednesday.[111] The god Odin (or Woden) of Germanic paganism was associated with the planet Mercury and Wednesday.[112] The Maya may have represented Mercury as an owl (or possibly four owls; two for the morning aspect and two for the evening) that served as a messenger to the underworld.
