Did you know that the planets have an influence on the days of the week? Each day of the week is governed by a planet and you can use its energy for specific purposes. These influences are based from astrology and the planets qualities and characteristics.


The name says it all. The Sun rules Sunday. The Sun is all about shining bright and being the biggest star in the sky. This is a great day to soak up some sun, express yourself, utilize your creativity, and maintain your vitality. For magical purposes, Sunday would be ideal for confidence and success spells.


Which planet (really a luminary) sounds like Monday? If you guessed the Moon, you’re correct! Monday, which is one O away from being Moonday, is governed by the luminous globe in the night sky. The Moon is a feminine planet and represents the subconscious mind and what’s hidden (such as desires, thoughts, motives, secrets). Mondays would be an excellent day for developing your intuition and psychic abilities, dream work, talking to your mom and powerful female figures, meditating, and shadow work.

Magic for psychic growth and protection are perfect to practice on Mondays.


Pronounced Martes in Spanish and Mardi in French, Mars, the planet of aggression and war rules Tuesday.

Mars is a planet about action and Tuesdays are an ideal day for starting new projects, exercising, getting shit done, and being spontaneous.

Tuesday is a good day for spellwork that deals with increasing your energy and gaining courage.


Mercury governs Wednesday ( Mercredi in French and Miercoles in Spanish) and rules all things communication. Writing, sending messages and emails, signing contracts, talking things over, and short travels are activities that would be best done on this day.

Doing magic and spellwork for effective communication and speed of manifestations and opportunities are most suitable for this day.


Today may be your lucky day! Jupiter, the planet of growth and expansion, rules this day. Thursday’s are considered the most productive day and is optimal for networking, business opportunities, and working on financial matters.

Jupiter can bring financial luck and Thursdays are fitting for money spells and investing in long term wealth.


You ever wonder why on Fridays (pronounced Venerdi in Italian) people are more social and out and about going parties and events? Well Venus, the planet of beauty and relationships rules this sociable day. Going to parties, hanging with friends, going to the spa, painting, drawing, and buying expensive gifts are just a few of the activities favored on this day.

People tend to be more flirtatious and appear more attractive on this day and is the best day for love spells and magic to increase attractiveness.


Though many people like to lounge around on this day, Saturday is one of the best days to get tasks accomplished. It is a day for discipline, getting priorities in order, preparing for the upcoming week, housework, and working hard. Saturday is ruled by Saturn, the planet of restriction and discipline, hence why it is an optimal day for responsibilities and duties.

For magical purposes, Saturday is good for banishing spells: getting rid of what no longer serves you.


In quite a few languages, especially the romance languages as showcased earlier, the days of the week spellings and pronunciations highlight the planet governing them. Even in the English language, Saturday, Sunday, and Mondays spelling mimic the names of their governing planet.

It is best to use these days for their benefits because their power and energy will be increased due to the planets influence. It’s also helpful because when you get in the practice of doing so, you can use each day to your advantage.
