Days of the Week: Energetic Relationships for Witches


By Morningbird

Each of the days of the week corresponds to the energies of one of the classical planets and carries a magical energy all its own. Pagans, witches and magicians may choose to time their worship or spellcasting activities based on the energies of the various days of the week.

The first hour of each day, beginning at sunrise, corresponds to the planet that rules that day. Each planetary hour following corresponds to a different hour based on the Chaldean sequence. The associated Gods are based on either ancient names for the days of the week or planetary associations. These are all pretty well established for the most part. The colors and the intentions that might go along with them are much more fluid and may vary by tradition.

As with all correspondences, explore them fully to ensure that you understand them and that the energetic relationship feels right for you and don’t be afraid to improvise.
