A week with Steiner

Just check on what day in the week it is and use this calendar to help you best support your family and your class . You might have to click on the pic to see it closer

In my training we explored the qualities of the grains, and it is interesting to see that on this chart Mars (Tuesday) is associated with oats, while Venus (Friday) is associated with barley.

When looking at the quality of the grains, it seems that oats have a much more milky, female quality, while barley seems more fiery and male. I'm wording this poorly probably, but Thursdays are loOong days for me. :-)

Anyhoo, we were encouraged to explore those qualities, and I feel (or think?!?!) that there is some truth to oats being more Venus-like than barley. I don't know where this information comes from, who compiled it, etc., but I always wonder about that now.

Did that come up in your training? I would love to hear.

This is very interesting! Thank-you.
Could you give some more examples of how to use the information?
We would be very grateful...Xxx

I hadn't seen some of the other dayy-of-the-week qualities that you mention and it looks like some are missing - would you mind providing those at some stage? Many thanks.
