Days of the Week

The days of the week for a Witch is steeped in possibility, for each new day holds a unique vibration and power that allows us to tap into the energies and add that little extra boost to our magickal workings.

Now, not all witches use timings in their spell work, but for me, it is a little added extra I can use to my advantage.  Much like the daily weather forecast or reading your horoscope in the back of a magazine. Planetary magick coupled with moon phases and seasons provides an array of knowledge that you will soon find yourself becoming your very own almanac! 


Traditionally the first day of the week, Sunday is full of happy, cheery energy, with promises of joy and relaxation.

Wear bright colours and celebrate life today.

Sunday is the day for your biggest spells, and brightest beginnings. Start projects today. Sundays magic is all about believing in yourself.

Perfect magick today could involve spells for happiness and success for the coming week, growth and abundance and of course, candle magick with its insightful flames.
