Welcome to my blog!
I only have an hour to meet this post’s deadline as I will be posting every Sunday and Thursday at 7 a.m from now on and I totally forgot to write today’s as I was busy writing future ones! Nice.
Anyways, today’s mini lesson is on planetary magick. When it comes to my atheistic or nihilistic magick, I like to work with planetary influences as there is no real need to conjure up any deities. It’s my way of doing magick with an incorporeal middle man. I mean, unless you count a sphere of influence as a middle man.
Planetary magick is pretty easy, all you need are a couple of table of correspondences, and to try to memorize what the different planetarian spheres rule over. Here is an example that skims the surface of what each planetary means to me:
The Sun: Sunday, Fire, Light, Illumination, The Lion, Success, Inspiration, Healing, Love, Protection, Enlightenment
The Moon: Monday, Water, Darkness, Reflection, The Wren, Intuition, Cycles, Womanhood, Divination, Menstruation, Fertility, The Shadow
Mars: Tuesday, Fire, Warrior Archetype, Creativity, Victory over enemies, Iron, Blood, Masculinity, Motivation, Protection
Mercury: Wednesday, Hermes, Air, Travel, Merchant, Gemini, Magician, Intellect, New beginnings, Luck
Jupiter: Thursday, Travel, Thor, Charity, Expansion, Wealth, Higher Knowledge, Philosophy, Humanitarianism, Justice, Law
Venus: Friday, Love, Luck, Poetry, Lucifer, Music, Joy, Bliss, Having Fun, Romance, Sex
Saturn: Saturday, Chronus, Satan, Dark Justice, Karma, Ancestral Magick, Responsibility, Inner Strength, Death & Rebirth, Protection, Curses
I think that all these influences are capable of illumination and teaching enlightenment in some way.
To enlighten someone in the laws of karma, or the benefits of charity, or law. A good way in working with these forces directly aside from study is the use of herbs and resins.
Sun: Cinnamon, Frankincense
Moon: Myrrh, Gardenia
Mars: Allspice, Cayenne, Coffee
Mercury: dill, carraway?
Of course if you are interested in the other planets, you can research them yourself. But these are the basic that I work with. My personal demonic ally correspondences:
Sun: Beelzebub, Paimon
Jupiter: ? (None so far)
Venus: Lucifer, Asmoday
Saturn: Azazel, Satan (Dark Source)
Also, I consider Dark Source to be both male and female. Who says Satan can’t also be a woman?
And I choose Asmoday for Venus because he can have a hand in romance, not just lust. Though he is very dangerous. But that is a blog post for another day!
I hope this mild bit of information has inspired you. Take care! – Moon Marquis
