Using Planets and Planetary Energy in your Spells and Magick
Choosing the right day to cast a spell does not need to be a long and involved process. Magic is a field of few true guarantees, giving a surprising amount of forgiveness once you have honed your intuition properly. Above all else, it is important to keep experimenting to find out what is best for you. A person’s energy signature significantly affects the spell, as much as the day the spell is cast, so find out what combination works best for you. The alignment of the planets, as well as the shifting phases of the moon, charges your spells with distinctive energies unique to each celestial body.
When choosing a suitable day of the week for a spell, it is important which planet this day is governed by. In addition to the day, the hours of day and night may also be considered. You can calculate these planetary hours for each day and thus determine the perfect time for your ritual.
In addition, if you want to include even more planetary energy into your spell, you choose the ingredients based on which plants, stones, colors, metals, etc., are assigned to the planet chosen as a supporter of the ritual.
The Moon is the planet of family and family ties. It is connected to the element of water and the zodiac sign of Cancer. Cast spells to strengthen family ties while the moon waxes and banish disagreement when the moon is waning. Lunar energy supports spells and magic related to family, children, marriage, fertility, cycles, growth, secrets, and agriculture. It is also a good time for dreamwork, moon magic, and spiritual development.
