I learned the meaning as 'sieze the day'.  It's the basic philosophy of Hedonism, ot the idea that you should enjoy life while you can.  

I learned it as seize the day, as in make the day enjoyable and accomplish goals at the same time.  But I have indeed heard other variations than the one I learned.
