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
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
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.
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’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’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
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’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’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.
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
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.
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.
