Magic is everywhere.
We are magic ourselves but our external world is filled with energy and it shifts day to day, hour to hour.In the craft, we use magical correspondences for our candle colors, our herbs, crystals, and incense because using items with similar energies is a way to boost our work. We choose things that represent our intention and that carry the same vibration and create a sort of wave or frequency as all things that work together in harmony increases the power we are sending out.
Colors are used widely. Each one has its own vibration for the magic we are creating, but daily correspondences added to these colors can create a higher cohesiveness that adds to this collective wave of power.In our work, we combine and blend and raise our power while in the process of creation.
Everything we use adds to this magic and one way of adding to that power is by using practical correspondences in our craft.The correspondences of the days of the week are associated with planetary influence. There are colors and magical properties associated with workings listed below for each day of the week.Using the correspondences associated with the days of the week doesn’t mean that we cannot do magic on any day we choose, it just means that using them adds to the flow and increases the energy in our work.
You may even find that you have things lying around your house that you can easily incorporate without any additional burden.
There may be times when we just feel drained or not “magical” enough and the addition of these planetary energies may be the boost we just need some days. It happens to all of us.Using this list doesn’t have to mean that you change your magic at all, but if you’re looking for a boost, you cannot go wrong with the added influence
Everyone has an opinion about this, but test it out for yourself. See what works for you. No one knows more about your magic than you do.
There are other correspondences, so consult the Oracle of Google. This is my personal breakdown and info and shenanigans. Don’t ever expect less from me, I’m very much extra at all times.
Planet: The Sun
Colors: yellow and orange
The sun gives life and is one of the reasons I do Sunday Spell Day. It’s one of my favorite days to work. Solar magic is bright, vital, and full of such beautiful energy. Yes, this group is named for the moon, but that doesn’t mean that is the only planet I work with. I use them all. Sunday is the day of the beginning of the week. One thing I love to do is to sit quietly and write out my intentions for the week on Sunday morning while having coffee. It’s one of my favorite days. This day corresponds with success, wealth, hope, confidence and is a great day for personal development and to start new things. I always create a personal affirmation for the week on Sunday and pull a tarot card and an oracle card for the week. I have a friend who pulls a ruling card for the week and then a card for each day. I’m lazy. I’ll own it. I pull just one of each. You do you.
Planet: The Moon
Colors: silver and white
Mondays are different for me because I also use the corresponding moon phases for any work. It just makes sense to me. The moon rules our intuition, emotions, psychic development, female mysteries, and water magic – because she does rule the tide. Mondays are also a great day for dream work and anything for manifestation related to the the phases. Moon Day Magic comes and goes here since I am in rhythm with Luna. Maybe I should start sharing more water magic? We all know I obviously was a mermaid in past life and connect with water. After this post I’ll be in the tub for at least an hour. I will also note that this is the day of illusions. I am always mindful and ask myself if I’m being real or not. Doing magic on a Monday from a space of denial is a place I will admit I’ve been. No judgment.
Colors: red and pink
Tuesdays are days of fast action and fire. Anything related to the shit show that calls for more courage? Tuesday is the day. Sometimes having a war influence means becoming a warrior and handling our business. It also means that if you’re putting out some ….stuff…this is the day. This is just a day for aggressive magic in my experience. Reversals work quicker when I do the work on a Tuesday and yet if I’m heading to a casino, my hand for that is always fire when I fix it this day. Tuesday for me, is a day of raw power. Tuesday is also a great shadow work day for me. It’s a bitch slap when I need it. I emerge stronger, quicker and just more potent.
Colors: The Color Purple ….you sho is ugly (if you get that movie reference, you are my new bff and henceforth must send me good vibes. I do not make these rules, but I live by them)
Wednesday is just a lucky day. When doing money work, I love to do it on a Wednesday. I enchanted my own website using geomantic glyphs during a waxing moon on a what? A Wednesday. Acquisitio and Conjunctio. Mercury is a quick little dude with those wings on his shoes. Travel, luck, focus, communication are all good on a Wednesday. I also like to divine with cards and charms on this day and have heard it’s also great for runes. Another thing about this day and an interesting note is that if you are doing any kind of spell to distract, hide or mislead, this is the day for such fuckery. Mercury is a sneaky little dude. Play the lottery or lay some tricks. See what happens. I don’t judge and most likely wanna hear all about these things anyway. Great day to say what the fuck you really mean.
Colors: Blue and Metallic
Ahhh Jupiter, you giant dick. While he is the go-to for power, money and good fortune, he’s about the long game. Fast money? Nope. He will give you more of what you have, so if you’re broke, you may be even more impoverished if you use any of his influence. Be careful with them herbs. Looking for justice? Thursday. Signing contracts or making big money moves? Thursday. Abundance looks different to everyone, but this is the day of plenty….sometimes that is just plenty of what you already have man. I’m serious here. My money spells done in the past before I got my shit together created lasting wounds. Expansion is painful when it comes from a space of lack. I said “I need money! I am broke” and he said “Hold my beer you desperate witch” and then I cried. Great money day if you are attracting what you are, but not what you want. I speak from my own experience and yours may differ, but if your money spells have backfired, look at the day and associations. If you see anything, take note. Everyone is different but I am not even ashamed to say that it took me years to figure this one out for my own magic. Good day for court and child support I must say.
Colors: Pink and white
Date night! As tonight is Valentine’s Day for those who celebrate or care, which I don’t because every day is the Thunderdome of love up in this house, Venus is here to help bring everyone closer…rawr. But not just romantically, friendship is for Friday too. Anything to draw more love to you is for Friday, whether it’s self-love, sexual love or even mending a rift. Fridays are my best bath days too. Not just for purification, but have you ever done a glamour? Mirror mirror on the wall. I have a friend who found out I was a witch and in the conversation, I told her about a glamour because she had a date. She looked right at me and said “You bitch. I knew there were nights you just looked too good. That’s not fair” We used to go out back when we were both single. The feminine power of Venus is also good for crafting, harvesting herbs, making potions, and just flat getting your drink on. Now we all know why I go live on Fridays. Secret is out. If I am creating a tea or anything for healing, I like to craft on a Friday. And hey, I know you don’t smoke weed, I know this; but I’m gonna get you high today, ’cause it’s Friday; you ain’t got no job… and you ain’t got shit to do. I smell Netflix and chill…. (movie reference #2).

Saturnday. You know I love it. A day for transformation and what I call setting up to be “stable as a table” is Saturday. The day of manifestation, material gain and a great day to banish what doesn’t serve you. Great day to have a talk with your ancestors, refresh that ancestral altar and burn that ancestral money The last day of the week is also a day of endings, as the wheel of the week completes it turn. Sunday is a new day, Saturday is the day to take out the trash if needed. Clean it all out. I chose Saturn Day for our marketing post because I want to support your material business gain. You should share your stuff. Saturdays are also my “refresh the wards” day and I have a thing I do around my house. I water the plants, refresh my salts, banish the demons, ya know…housework
I also mop my floors using some Florida water, refresh my fridge and just do normal house stuff. I may also slip into trance and dance on a Saturday, you never know what the day holds for me.
I hope this post helps you when planning to work with the planetary influences. Of course, this post was about my work, but I would love to hear about yours too! Y’all should share more with me. I’d love to hear all about it, I want to know these things
A note about planetary hours: Each day also has different planetary hours and correspondences. In a future post, I’ll go more into detail about this. Adding it here just made it long and a little confusing.
