advancement of position, political influence, self-aggrandizement, theatrical
success and glory, promotional schemes and release from capitivity.
The Sun hours are ideal for meditation upon Spiritual cleaning and revitalization.

Goddesses Isia, Hera, Juno, Themis
Gods Bel, Eurymedon, Jupiter, Marduk, Thor, Zeus
Rules Leadership; Politics; Power; Honor; Royalty; Public Acclaim and Fame;
Responsibility; Wealth; Business; Success; Health; Love; Expansion; Growth
Notes Jupiter's influence is predominantly joviality, and is favorable to all acts of socialbility dealings with family, opportunity, group enterprise, civic functions. Jupiter's effect is one of expansion. This is a concept which often misleads most into believing that everything about it is good. Remember, Jupiter brings more - abundance! But it is more of the same that which exists, not something different. It does NOT activate change. Therefore to invoke Jupiter on behalf of someone who is already suffering, or lacking, would bring about total despair, a poverty. It's the influence under which "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer," so use caution. It will bring a bumper crop if the seeds have been properly sown, and the field well tended; but it wont grow hair on a billiard ball - only a nice shine.
Cast spells for "increase" during Jupiter hours. But remember, there has to be something in existing to increase. So if it is a money spell, use a dollar bill, or bank book (never depleted) for a "target" or "seed". If the desired increase is for physical strength or stamina, move the time closer to the Jupiter-Mars cusp. The Moon must be waxing in an Earth sign for any increase.
Jupiter is used from Winter Solstice to Vernal Equinox for power, luck, success and things the Sun is used for ordinarily, as the Sun's power is weaker during this time.
Jupiter's hours are good for spells to increase Male fertility in humans or animals. For more verility use the Jupiter-Mars cusp. Jupiter hours are good for turning a good business into a "bonanza" or to achieve a raise in salary or promotion.
Also for matters of family reunion.
Jupiter's influence would be good to put a"fat" spell on an individual who is egotistically and obnoxiously vain about his or her slender physique. It would certainly teach a little tolerence and sympathy for those not so fortunately blessed.
When someone is inclined to become fettered with the accumulation of too much of anything, abanishing ritual may be prefiormed to rid themof the prevelance of the Jupiter's influence. This must be done with the Moon waning in Capricorn, Gemini or Virgo.
Planet Mars
Day Tuesday
Element Fire
Magickal Tool Athame
Color Red
Metal Iron, Steel
Signs Aries, Scorpio
Tone Do and C
Letter T
Numbers 2, 3, 16, 5
Jewel Bloodstone, Garnet, Ruby, Jasper
Oils Allspice, coriander, patchouli, pine
Angel Kamael
Incense Cypress, Pine and Tobacco
Plants All-Heal, aloes, asafoetida, basil, betony, capers, chiles, coriander, dragon's blood
Trees Holly, Kerm, Oak
Goddesses Anath, Brigit, Diana, Morrigan
Gods Ares, Crius, Heracles, Mars, Nergal, Horus, Tyr
Rules Strength; Struggle; War; Anger; Conflict; Aggression; Victory; Energy; Ambition;
Goals; Upheaval; Strife; Arguments
Notes Mars is the MOTIVATOR. It has powerful positive and negative influences, and is a force to be considered with utmost CAUTION.
Mars does not know nor care about right or wrong, It only strives after VICTORY. It incites courage, bravery and vinditiveness. It is inclined toward combativeness and its power favors domination, politics, athletics, surgery, industry, difficulties in lawsuits, etc. It seems to furnish the necessary drive and force required to CONQUER or WIN.
Often called the angry red planet cause of its reddish glow, its Energy is powerful and difficult to control. Once involked, its hard to stop and will not rest until it vanquishes all obstacles in its path. When working rituals, make certain that this is the effect you desire because there is no "going back" Once you've invoked the energy of Mars.
Martian influence is a PROTECTOR par excellence and the Mars hour is useful for petitions of protection against enemies, the "Evil Eye" and demonic attack or possession.
Time to launch an all-out attack on an enemy or adversary. Remember, this spell is like the Gladiator - it will drive to the KILL if uncontrolled and is very likely to leave a trail of blood in its wake! Therefore, if it is only desired to thwart, or inhibit another's actions, without actually hurting the person, then Saturn would be better. Always carefully consider the Karmic aspects of Mars' influence, one is entitled only to like kind of retribution - no more! Any "overdraught" will be subject to the Law of Three!
Controlling Mars:
You must learn to modify it with other Planetary or zodiacal influences. Example: Mercury or Venus, with a Mars Hour and The Moon in an Air Sign to combat in Justice for a favorable outcome (during the New Moon, 1st Quarter)
Mars-Sun Cusp:
Seek paroles or liberation, whether deserved or not. Spell cast to obtain freedom is well-timed if the power can be released at the precise moment of the cusp, with the Moon in a fire sign. For Peaceful seperations or hand-partings, choose a day of Venus, Moon full-to-waning in an Earth Sign with the Mars-Sun Infuence
Jupiter-Mars Cusp:
Good for Psycho-kinetic Magick (mind over matter) - change the weather, divert storms, influence gaming devices to win and to bring about "miraculous" (spontaneous) healings, etc. With the Sun in an Air Sign, the Moon in a Water Sign.

hidden knowledge (for benevolent purposes) and achieving quite "impossible" feats
designed to bestow honor and dignity. Influence is practical, saving and beneficial -
"crystallization"
Notes Saturn-Jupiter Cusp with Moon in Taurus is ideal time for peace making. This cusp
favors benevolent leadership, practical idealism, brotherly love, selflessness and
philanthropic acts. Use this time to "help" in any way andit will bring an appropriate
spiritual reward.
Moon wanes in Scorpio - Saturn influence is good for casting spells to bind, thwart, or
cause someone to cease and desist from a particular action and "to freeze" someone or
something in a present condition or state. This could result in the arrest of a progressive
disease. (This spell would have to be re-inforced under the Sun-Venus influence.)
Saturn Planetary Hours favor the collection of debts. When the Moon is in an Earth sign,

Notes Mercury is "the manipulator." It's influence is favorable to all acts requiring
adaptiveness - skills commerce, medicine, diplomacy, couseling, changes, etc.
Mercury hours lend themselves adeptly to mental feats of all kinds, or to works aimed
at bending the mind of another.
Use to cast spells aimed at bringing about quick changes of all kinds, but it will work
best when the Moon is in a mutable sign. If it is in a cardinal or fixed sign the work
could fail and result in frustration or confession.
chronically greedy, or the malcontent as if they are actually enjoying their due share of
good luck but simply dont take advantage of the benefits or make good use of them
the opposite, in order to teach a lesson.
Remember, Venus leads toward Natural Order and wants to right things which are
wrong or inequitable and Mercury maneuvers the change. This is also a good time for
healing works, when the Moon is in Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn.
Use a Mercury hour to seek forgiveness, and to make amends, when a strong change
in attitudes is desired, or to cause people who have been feuding to make up and
become friends. Also to cause troublesome-in-laws or relatives to altar their ways, or
become reasonable. When the Moon is in conjuction with Uranus the Mercury hour is
used to completely upset or wreck and establishment or trend.

Gods Eros, Oceanus, Robin Hood, Pan, Venus, Aphrodite, Quetzalcoatl.
Rules Love, Harmony, Sexuality, Friendship, Attraction, Pleasure, Unions, Beauty,
Sensuality, Artistic Creations
Notes Venus encourages the Natural Order of things, to protect Nature's balance. The Venus
days and hours are very favorably to anything related to physical perfection and
harmony.
While Venus has been regarded as the ideal power for love spells, this is a haphazard
generalization, and must be given further consideration. Remember, Venus guards the
Natural Order of things, so if the love desired does not in any way disrupt, or corrupt an
existing family entity, and if the individuals have already known one another, are
favorably matched, and simply need a little "boost" to encourage a true love to
manifest and flourish, then Venus is the best influence to utilize such love spells.
Also to be considered is the fertility aspect. If the person desiring to obtain the love of
another is not serious to the extent of also being willing to assume the responsibility
for home and family - that is to say, is only an affair or passion is what is really wanted
the result could be total disastrous - an unwanted pregnancy, a jealous and vindictive
lover who is difficult to get loose from, etc. For such spells of attraction or romantic
fascination, it is best to forget the Venus influence until such time as it is desired to
make the union permanent, or binding. Meanwhile, use the Mercury (mind-bending
manipulator) and Moon (if ascination) influences, the Moon being ideal for romanic
and emotional vulnerability.
Venus hours are fine to cast spells for fertility - of plants, animals or humans, also
corporate entities. Also to bring peace in the home, average good luck that has been
lacking, anything dealing with music, arts and crafts, home economics and beauty.
