Basic Ritual Timing

Each day of the week has been assigned many correspondences. Quite honestly I will admit that I don’t know how these correspondences first developed. I’m sure somewhere along the line someone assigned something to one particular day, probably based on a religious observance, and more correspondences were added as time went on. But, as we know, things take hold in the public mind (the collective unconscious), and begin to gain power. Because of this, some people believe that rites and spells should be preformed on the day of the week most in tune with your purpose. This can be taken even further by using the correct planetary hour, which I will cover in another essay.
