Though I have written primarily about the significance of the different
days, I have also listed the effects of the planetary hours.
The planets have had a special place in both ritual magick and
astrology, since the Ancient Babylonians and Chaldeans first observed
them wandering across the sky (the word 'planet' derives from the
Greek planetes, meaning 'wanderer') against the fixed constellations of
the zodiac.
The ancients knew of only five planets - Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter
and Saturn. Uranus, Neptune and Pluto were discovered only after the
invention of the telescope and so have not assumed the importance in
magick that they have in astrology. What is more, the first
astronomers also counted the Sun and the Moon as planets and
credited them with certain qualities that have become woven into the
Western astrological and magical traditions.
Astrologers believe that the positions of the planets in the zodiac at the
time of an individual's birth can influence and indicate that person's
fate. In magick, the planetary strengths can be applied to any purpose
under the As above, so below' principle that stresses the
interconnectedness of the whole universe.
You can create your own spells by using the associations, much as you
create recipes by knowing the qualities and blending power of

individual ingredients. And just as in cookery, those spells or recipes
where you break away from the set formula are often the most
successful.
For example, if you wanted to do well in an interview for a job, you
might burn a wish in a candle of the color blue - for careers - on
Thursday, the day of Jupiter, who is associated with employment and
worldly success and all matters of increase; for extra potency, the
candle could be surrounded with small blue sodalite or lapis lazuli,
Jupiter's special crystals. You could also burn cedar, one of Jupiter's
incenses or sandalwood oil.
If you needed more general career success, you could make or buy an
amulet of tin, the metal of Jupiter, perhaps a coin from a museum
shop that you charged with power every Thursday by sprinkling it with
salt, passing it through cedar incense, a blue candle flame and the
fragrance of burning sandalwood oil.
If your projected job was to do with communication, technology or the
media which are ruled by Mercury, you could carry out the spell on two
consecutive days, beginning with the communicative power of Mercury
on his hour, the third after sunset on a Wednesday. You could light
yellow candles and use a Mercurian crystal, such as yellow jasper or a
yellow-banded agate, and burn dill incense and fennel essential oil. On
the second day of the spell, the Thursday, carry out the spell again at
the third hour after sunset, which on this day is Jupiter's evening hour,
to add his authority and opportunities for expansion.
