Our Mystic Week

Many people fail to conceptualize the full extent in which the

concept of the week affects our lives. Will you be doing the same

thing on Tuesday as you will be doing next Saturday? The week was

originally designed as a Magickal construct based on pre-Christian

deities and archetypes. So if the week was designed to be a Magickal

device to help explain and control our reality, why should we not

invest some effort into determining how this construct could aid us in

our general understanding of our personal existences today?

          When the days of the week were originally designed, they each

represented one of the known medieval celestial bodies.

Each Day’s Planet

                             Sunday                 The Sun

                             Monday               The Moon

                             Tuesday               Mars

                             Wednesday          Mercury

                             Thursday             Jupiter

                             Friday                  Venus

                             Saturday              Saturn

          Through the centuries, there has been much argument and

disagreement regarding the Magickal properties of the days of the

week and what the represent. Those who follow The Great Work,

have however, come to a certain understanding. These conclusions

have become the archetypes, which represent our concepts of the days

of the week. The following is my personal interpretation of these

archetypes.

 

 

Sunday:

          The color of this day is red. Sunday is a day of power. It is an

energy enhancer. You can use this day to multiply the strength of any

task or goal, which you are working on. Sunday is also associated

with luck and creating, as well as maintaining positive luck.

          Its number is 5 and its element is Fire. Sunday’s symbols

include: the Pentagram, fire, and all objects associated with bringing a

person good luck. Loki is considered this day’s keeper.

 

 

Monday:

          The color of Monday is a strong deep green. Monday is of

course linking with the Moon and the myriad of things it represents.

Monday is a day of strength and a good day to complete tasks. It is the

day of the Earth and Earth Magicks. Working with animals and nature

is also stronger on Monday, for our ties to such are closer.

          The number for this day is 8. Its element is Earth. Its symbols

include: the Moon, the Chaos sign, the snake, the arrow, and the

feathered serpent. The All-Father serpent (Yig, Quetzequatl) is the

master of this day.

Tuesday:

          Tuesday’s color is yellow. Since Mars is the planet of war,

much of Tuesday’s orientation concerns attack and defense. Yet

strangely, this is also the day of hearth and home, and of general

goodness towards others. Tuesday is the day to set up systems to

protect yourself, and those in your care, from enemies and ill fortune.

Conversely, it is also the time to attack your foe. It has been

considered a day of virtue as well, a day when one works to prove

their moral character and fiber.

          Tuesday’s number is 6. Its element is fire. Tuesday’s symbols

include: a half black, half white circle, eight swords with their hilts

touching pointing outwards, the Sun, and the bow. Apollo watches

over this day.

Wednesday:

          Wednesday’s color is a rich gray. This day has been associated

with gaining money, employment, thievery, gambling, and material

wealth. It is also a day of potent Magick and healing. Attempts to

Magickally or physically heal a person, should be done on this day.

Wednesday is also a day for guile and trickery, a great time for pranks

and confusion.

          Wednesday’s number is the powerful Magickal number 7. Its

element is air. Wednesday’s symbols include: the Caduceus, the

Ankh, the eye in the pyramid, mistletoe, and the empty circle. Hermes

is the Lord of this, the most Magickal of days.

Thursday:

          Thursday’s color is a deep purple. Thursday deals with

leadership, human interaction, control, and charisma. It is the day of

machiavellian plotting. It also represents success in organizations and

with people. Like Monday it is associated with the Moon. Thursday

nights are also strong times for performing Magick, particularly if it is

in secret or associated with the female aspects of existence.

          Thursday’s number is 1. It is of the element of air. Its symbols

include: lightning, the medicine wheel, the moon, the eternity symbol,

and the crossroads. Hecate is the Goddess that oversees Thursday.

Friday:

          Friday’s color is any type of blue. The day is linked with sex

and creativity. It is a day to work on human relationships, with the

people you truly care about. Friday is also the day to perform sex

Magick and fertility rituals. Friday is often considered a female

oriented day, but that does not mean that men can not use it in any

way that fosters creative action.

          Friday’s number is 3 and its element is water. The symbols

associated with Friday include: a naked woman, a three pointed chaos

sign, the sign of Solomon, a circle with a arrow hitting the edge, the

threefold Goddess, and the cursive M, with the end sprouting a devil’s

tail. Inanna rules this day.

 

Saturday:

          The color for Saturday is black. Saturday is the day of death. It

is also the day most associated with evil and the night. Aggression and

war can rule this day (night), for it is the night of the dark mage. It

would be a day exact revenge from your enemies, of cause hurtful

effects. It is the night of the angry and the displaced. On a more

positive bend, it is a day to selfishly focus on yourself, your needs,

and even your own projects. Do what you want to do. You are your

only boss.

          The number for Saturday is 2, which is the number of the

adversary. Its element is earth. Saturday’s symbols include: the skull,

the smoking mirror, the dagger, the bat, and a circle with two triangles

pointing at each other. The dark God Tezcatlipoca owns this day.

 

Baccanaght:

          The color for this mysterious eighth day is brown. The

Baccanaght occurs each day, but yet, has no official day. This is the

time between midnight and the sunrise the following day, that mystic

time, when one feels it is still yesterday, when it is in fact the

beginning of the new day. Baccanaght is the time of joy, fun, and

happiness. This is when one can party without regret and be as

hedonistic as they are comfortable with. It is a time for wine,

sensuality, and pleasure.

          Baccanaght’s number is 9 and its element is water. Its symbols

include: a stem holding eight grapes, nine circles, each within the

other, the Holy Grail, and the satyr. Dionysus enjoys being the God of

this nebulous time.
