Use planetary magic to manifest what you want from the universe – Patricia Weston shows you how
Planetary magic is a powerful component in witch work. Working with the main planets in our solar system can call forth powerful energy. Each one has a specific essence of its own, and once you learn and connect with each one, you can come to know more about yourself on a wider universal level.
There are seven main planets that I like to connect with – the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn. It’s handy to remember that each planet corresponds to a certain day. Monday is associated with the intuitive Moon, Tuesday with fiery Mars, Wednesday with communicative Mercury, Thursday with lucky Jupiter, Friday with loving Venus, Saturn on a Saturday and Sunday with the bright Sun.
We witches fluidly work our magic in easy harmony with the phases of the moon, and we know lunar powers very intimately through our workings and cycles, but I feel its important to also integrate the other planets for extra magical energy. Working with the colours, botanicals, crystals and symbolism of each planet can really heighten your spell energy and assist you with your spiritual practice.
I’ve worked with the Sun in spells and magic for clearing and banishing negative energy, and for healing father related issues. The moon is magical to work with for enhancing your psychic abilities and general healing. Mars is a great planet if you need a powerful energetic boost, as it’s fiery and mighty. Mercury is the planet of communication, and I love connecting with this planet whenever I need to assert myself, I’ve worked with the Sun in spells and magic for clearing and banishing negative energy, and for healing father related issues.

Connect with and get to know each planet by simply integrating planetary spell work into your daily rituals. If you write down which day each planet relates to you, you’ll easily begin to flow, merge and connect with their energies. Each also has specific crystals, colours, scents and symbolism, so if you prepare your planetary daily rituals with all your ingredients set up beforehand, you’ll be well prepared. Pick three ingredients for each planet and day – a scent or herb, coloured candle and planet symbol or glyph. Look up the glyph for each planet on the internet and print them off and cut them out, or for a more personal touch, draw each one.
