“A witch who is bored might do ANYTHING.
People said things like ‘we had to make our own amusements in those days’ as if this signified some kind of moral worth, and perhaps it did, but the last thing you wanted a witch to do was get bored and start making her own amusements, because witches sometimes had famously erratic ideas about what was amusing.”
― Terry Pratchett, Legends 1
Merry Meet :)))
I’ve been giving you lots of spells to work with lately. We know to work with the moons cycles when casting spells, and how the the planetary alignment can influence the energy that we raise. Another point on casting spells is the time of day that you cast it. So today I wanted to delve into that a bit with all of you for those of you who may not be familiar, as casting spells during the appropriate time of day can help contribute to the effectiveness of your spell as well.
Nighttime: As the Moon is out at night, nighttime energy is more feminine in nature. It’s a time when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest. Spells worked at night should be more personal and emotional in nature. You are appealing to the Mother Goddess. 🙂 An example of a spell during this time would be one to connect with the Goddess, spells to do with love, relationships, etc. Midnight would be the most powerful time to cast these types of spells.
Daytime: Since the Sun is out during the day, the energy would be more masculine during this time. This time is better spells that are more active and energetic, may require strength or aggressiveness. Some examples of spells to work during the daytime would be ones that pertain to business, money, motivation or groups. High Noon would be the best time to cast these types of spells.

Planetary magick is a complex system which blends astrology, ancient cosmology, and celestial intelligences in an attempt to bring the most effective results. In this article, we’ll discuss the planetary rulers of the seven days of the week, and the best day to perform different types of magick.
Planetary magic can seem cumbersome, especially to Witches more accustomed to elemental (Earth) magic. But you don’t have to spend hours drafting talismans or poring over charts to add some planetary flavor to your spellwork. Using a very simple overview of magickal timing, you can make sure your working is aligned with the appropriate planetary ruler.
The idea of planetary rulership (and the 7-day week) dates all the way back to Chaldean (Babylonian) astrology. They assigned a planet to rule each day, and further divided the day into planetary hours. Later, the Greek and Roman civilizations adapted the Babylonian calender for their use. Planetary magic was re-discovered by the medieval magicians, who looked to the Classical world for inspiration. The tradition of using different days for different types of magic was put forth in the 16th-century Key of Solomon, a foundational text of the Western magical tradition.

To the Witch, each day of the week is more than just another day for work or errands; every individual day holds a different and unique vibration and power, enabling us to tap into a specific window of timing for our spell work. These correspondences enable us to work with the energies that surround us on a more clear level, thus adding more power and speed to the working we choose to do. Day of the week correspondences are just a single layer on which we can build our magickal timing, allowing us to ensure the success of our workings and healing.
I’ll be you may be wondering why a Witch would want to plan out her spells? A Witch doesn’t need special
timing or tools. Isn’t a Witches power within his or her self? The answer is yes, a Witch’s power is definitely within his or her self; however, we are not always at 100% when our spell work may need it most! Let’s say you have come down with an illness
and need to do a healing; if you are only feeling 50%, only 50% of your own energy is available for the spell. Should you perform your healing spell on a Monday, that day will contribute its healing energies to make up for what you are not able to supply! Of course, if you are feeling 100%, there’s nothing wrong with a little extra boost!
