Friday is Shukravar or the day of planet Shukra, Venus. This planet signifies beauty, wealth, and materialistic auspiciousness. A Vedic story tells that Goddess Lakshmi, a form of Shakti was given to King of Devas, Lord Indra by a sage. Lord Indra neglected the goddess which annoyed the sage who in turn cursed the Devas and asked the guru of demigods Shukracharya to look after the wealth goddess. He did as he was told and therefore his day Shukravar or Friday became so auspicious for female deity worship.
