Whatever is the guiding religion of the spell caster or the witch, the practitioners typically stick to a definite period of time to cast the spell. With the Earth rotating, the planetary positions and the location of the Moon and the Sun that has a major influence on the turn out of the events, keep oscillating. It is, therefore, essential to identify the exact location of these influential factors before conducting magical rituals. However, there are some advocates of spell casting who believe that these rituals will create the desired impact irrespective of the time of performance. This belief is more popular amongst the modern spell casters who utilize the power of the Internet in widening their area of operation.
Many supporters of ancient witchcraft make a detailed analysis of the astronomical position of the stars and the planets to verify the time that is right for the ritual.
Of all the celestial elements, the Moon’s energy is considered the most forceful. Witches believe in the fact that the energy that radiates from the spells during the time of the waxing of the moon increases, which goes down as it wanes. It is the reason why spells to lure a person or thing towards you is cast during the time between three days after the new moon . Love spells are generally cast during full moon when the energy is at its peak. It is the time for growth and prosperity. Similarly, the rituals conducted to drive away the negative energy from you are performed any time between three days after the full moon to the new moon. The waning moon phase is also the time to discover the hidden secrets related to people and events. In conclusion, the moon phases are an important factor to consider when casting spells.
Sun Signs and Moon Signs
Based on the traditions followed by the cult of the spell caster or witch, they may rely on the powers radiated by the Sun signs and the Moon signs in performing the ceremony. The sun signs are the constellation of the zodiac at the time of the birth of the individual. It can speak volumes of the general characteristics of the person that is inevitable in turning the energy in your favor. Moon signs, on the other hand, probe deeper into the inner feelings and emotions of the individual that change with the position and the movement of the Earth. Depending on the location of the earth, the influence exerted by the Sun signs and the Moon signs can dictate the turn of the events. So, it is to be taken into account when casting the spell. Each sign, be it Sun or the Moon, can be Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn.
Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are considered the three fire signs; Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are the Earth signs; Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are believed to be the air signs and Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are the water signs. Aries is the time to start new ventures, Taurus for self-improvement, Gemini for making wishes come true, Cancer for harmony, Leo to ignite sparks of passion, Virgo to cleanse the environment free from harmful elements, Libra for the spells related to marriage, Scorpio for adding protection, Sagittarius to reach the higher spirits, Capricorn for fertility spells, Aquarius for new friendship, and Pisces to enhance mental alertness.

Days of the Week
Similar to these zodiac signs, the day of the week can influence the strength of the magical spells. Each day, from Sunday to Saturday, holds differing energy that works separately on the magical spells. So, it is inevitable to remain abreast of the powers held by the various days before deciding the day of casting spells to improve the chances for the success of the magic.
Days of the week are also important in terms of magical prowess for exactly the same reason as zodiac signs as there are variations in celestial energies throughout weekly periods.
- Planet: Moon
- Color: White
Monday is of course associated with the moon (and with all lunar deities) and with the color white. It is particularly suitable for all magical work that concerns dreams, intuition, and spiritual development. It is a day for all magic that is more about the inside than the outside, for yourself, not others. Your own feelings, thoughts, and forebodings.
Best time for feminine spells, such as fertility of women, regulation of cycles and love. It is also a day for divination, astral travel, and visions.
- Planet: Mars
- Color: Red
Tuesday is associated with the planet Mars and the color red. It is particularly suitable for all magical actions that revolve around competition or success, physical strength, potency, politics, and courage. Also for increasing self-confidence, promoting willpower, drive, and charisma.
Good for developing courage and military-based magic. Traditionally it is also a day for dark magic and creating discord.
- Planet: Mercury
- Color: Purple
Wednesday is associated with Mercury and the color purple. It is particularly suitable for magical work that concerns career, trade, profession, logic, and learning or studying. Also ideal for everything related to communication, such as applications, interviews, presentations, and negotiations. If you can select the time of an exam yourself, you should always schedule them on a Wednesday.
Good for creativity, writing, and communication. It also helps with spells for luck and to acquire knowledge about the future.
- Planet: Jupiter
- Color: Blue
Thursday is associated with Jupiter and the color blue. It is particularly suitable for all magical work that has to do with luck, profit, finances, contracts and (court) negotiations. In addition to the external wealth and justice, the internal wealth on Thursday is also favored. And so it makes sense to carry out rituals for finding meaning, inspiration or development on this day.
Useful to increase wealth and also for spells to do with employment, healing, and prosperity.
- Planet: Venus
- Color: Green
Friday is associated with the planet Venus and the color green. It is particularly suitable for all magical work, for love, fertility, sensuality, romance, and seduction. In this context, fertility should not only refer to the desire to have children: all things that are supposed to “bear fruit”, where growth and reproduction are sought, are also favored.
Best for spells to do with love, sex, happiness, and beauty.
- Planet: Saturn
- Color: Black
Saturday is associated with Saturn and the color black. It is particularly suitable for all magical work that involves fundamental changes or the overcoming of bad habits. Spells for sending away or warding off negative energies, curses or hexes are particularly successful on this day. It is the ideal day for magical self-defense or to part with destructive thoughts or feelings. For the sake of completeness, however, it should also be mentioned here that Saturday is also a good time for destructive spells in the form of damage spells, separation spells or curses and hexes.
Used for psychic and spirit-based magics as well as prosperity and agricultural spells.
- Planet: Sun
- Color: Yellow
Sunday is associated with the sun and with the color yellow. As a traditionally non-working day, it is particularly suitable for all magical activities relating to regeneration and the home. So Sunday is just as suitable for recovery and well-being magic as for rituals related to family, home and partnership. Especially to strengthen, protect or (re-)establish harmony and cohesion.
Useful for employment-based spells and also for promoting and encouraging peace via prevention of war. Good to cast prosperity and friendship spells.
As you can see here, there are many benefits to synchronizing your magic with the time that you perform the spell as certain days and months are more potent for certain spells. For example, a love spell will be especially powerful and effective on a Friday in late June or early July.
Scheduling gives you a huge chance to get the most from your spells and, without doing this; you are failing to unlock the full potential of your magical abilities. With the aid of a perfect schedule, you can become a very powerful practitioner of magic.
In short, one can say that the spell casters give undue importance to the time of the spell cast.
