Planetary Rulers and Attributes

Planetary Rulers and Attributes

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

In working magic, some days are better than others, depending on what is being sought. Each day is ruled by a planet and has its own particular attributes for purposes of working magic. If, for example, there is need for healing magic, this would best be done on a Monday since that day, ruled by the Moon, is the one best suited to that purpose. It should be noted that, in astrology, celestial bodies including the Sun and Moon are called planets. The following list shows which planet rules each day, and which conditions and activities are favored on each day. Sunday—Sun—Agriculture, beauty, creativity, fortune, guardianship, hope, money, self-expression, victory. Monday—Moon—Ancestors, childbearing, dreams, healing, instinct, memory, merchandise, purity, theft, virginity. Tuesday—Mars—Enemies, initiation, loyalty, matrimony, prison, protection, war, wealth. Wednesday—Mercury—Business, communication, debt, fear, loss, travel. Thursday—Jupiter—Clothing, desires, harvests, honor, marriage, oaths, riches, treaties. Friday—Venus—Beauty, family life, friendship, fruitfulness, growth, harmony, love, nature, pleasures, sexuality, strangers, waters. Saturday—Saturn—Building, doctrine, freedom, gifts, life, protection, real estate, sowing, tenacity.
