Wednesday is ruled by the planet Mercury, a day to store up on knowledge and develop your powers of wisdom. In today's society the acquisition of facts is seen as "all-important" but this is not the same as wisdom which comes from understanding. Wisdom comes when you not only exercise your rational mind, but flex your creative and imaginative muscles as well.
