Is there a way to send an email on a specific day of the week in Journey Builder? I know there are the options "wait x days until 2pm", but I would like to send an email out on the 2nd Monday after signup without having to resort to queries and automations.

There's no way to do this using the Journey Builder UI. We've built a Custom Activity for Journey Builder which does exactly that, but that's a lot more effort than creating queries and automations.

My solution to this was to create a "Helper Automation" consisting of a query activity which retrieves the "Day" value of the date field and puts that in another field in the Data Extension. Then I had the Journey wait a few hours until this hourly query had run. Next was using a conditional filter to see what day the new field value is (Monday, Tuesday, Saturday etc.), and wait an appropriate amount of days (wait 1 day, 4 days, 7 days) before starting the next steps.
