Moon Knight’s Double Moon Day
Yesterday, on Monday, January 17th, 2022, the official trailer debuted for Moon Knight, the highly anticipated upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series that arrives on Disney+ for streaming beginning on Wednesday, March 30th, 2022. Many were quick to point out that the release of the trailer was tied to the full moon… but there’s another aspect of the trailer’s release date that fits the lunar theme of the series: the very name “Monday” itself!
Just Another Manic Monadandaeg
That’s right, Marvel Blog True Believers: in addition to the fact that the trailer was released on the day of the lunar cycle at which the moon reaches its peak illumination (or a “full moon,” in the common parlance), yesterday was also a Monday.
The name “Monday” comes from the Anglo-Saxon word “monadandaeg.” Translated into English, this name means “the moon’s day.”
Beyond that, because Monday is ruled by the moon, the astrological sign with which it is most closely related is Cancer, the sign that is connected to mood changes. We have a feeling that Marc Spector Steven Grant will relate to this particular aspect of Monday’s more obscure astrological connections!
However, when the first episode of Moon Knight arrives, it isn’t meant to be on a Monadandaeg, Marvel Blog True Believers: March 30th is a Wednesday, which has been the day that new MCU shows have been released since it became clear that the internet was too busy on Fridays to support the demand created by fresh episodes midway through WandaVision’s first (and only?) season.
