Appropriate Days and Lunar Times

Timing is everything. Choosing the right time of day and month can drastically affect success in magick. Each day of the week and part of the lunar cycle is associated with specific traits. Certain days are better for certain types of spells. Performing your spell work on these days can enhance your success.

  • Sunday: Ruled by the sun, volunteer services, crops, and exercise.

  • Monday: Ruled by the moon, psychic development, feminine energies, family, health, and success.

  • Tuesday: Ruled by Mars, business, animals, sex, passion, lust, and confrontations.

  • Wednesday: Ruled by Mercury, communication, correspondence, and writers.

  • Thursday: Ruled by Jupiter, self-improvement, prosperity, and social events.

  • Friday: Ruled by Venus, love, passion, and creativity.

  • Saturday: Ruled by Saturn, publicity, family ties, and self-improvement.

Another way to strengthen your spells is to perform magick during the proper moon phases. Just as the days of the week affect spell work, so, too, does the moon. For magick, the lunar cycle is broken down into five main phases.

  • Full Moon: Mother Goddess energy, general magick, empowerment, prosperity, fertility, enhancement, bringing something toward you, issues that would need to work in your favor.

  • Waning Moon: Crone Goddess energy, removal of obstacles, release work, and cleansing rituals.

  • Waxing Moon: Maiden Goddess energy, new beginnings, brings something toward you, prosperity, love magick, sex magick, and communication.

  • New Moon: New beginnings. This is when there is no moon in the night's sky. This phase occurs exactly opposite the full moon. It is recommended to NOT perform magick on this day. Perform magick one day after.

  • Dark Moon: Banishing, deep meditation, breaking spells, and breaking negative habits. This occurs close to the phase of the new moon, three days before the actual change of the phase.
