MM: Planetary Hours

Dear Carolina Dean,

I hope you can help me with this... I need to do a money spell starting this Thursday, Jan.17/2013 for 8 consecutive days..... Would it be possible if you could tell me exactly what time each day to do it? I'd appreciate it very much.
Thank you
Hi,

As you know the 7 days of the week are associated with the 7 classical planets.  
  1. Sunday-----------the Sun
  2. Monday--------- the Moon
  3. Tuesday--------- Mars
  4. Wednesday----- Mercury
  5. Thursday-------- Jupiter
  6. Friday---------- Venus
  7. Saturday-------- Saturn

In addition, the first hour of each day is associated with the ruler of that day. Therefore, the hour of Jupiter on Thursday will be at Sunrise.

For the additional days you can go to the farmer's almanac and get the times for Sunrise and Sunset in your area and then plug those times into this planetary hour calculator to determine the hour of Jupiter for any given day.


Finally, if you wish to learn how to do it yourself by hand, the please refer to the information below.

 

Planetary Hours 

 

One timing method that witches often use to choose the hour of the day that they might perform a spell involves consulting the Planetary Hour Tables. There are two such tables, one is for Sunrise to Sunset, and the other is for Sunset to Sunrise. It is believed that each hour of the day and night is ruled by a planetary energy, and in that hour events and activities often coincide with the energy of that planet.  There are seven classical planets, which also correspond to the seven days of the week as mentioned earlier. 

To work with the Planetary Tables, you need two pieces of information, the time the Sun will rise and the time that the Sun will set on the day that you have chosen for your magickal work. 

How to Calculate the Planetary Hours

For the Day

Subtract the time of Sunrise from Noon, to determine the amount of daylight between those two periods, and add the time of Sunset giving the amount of daylight hours for that day in hours and minutes. Convert the hours to minutes by multiplying them by 60 and then add the minutes together, giving the amount of minutes in between sunrise and sunset.  Since the Planetary Hour Tables are divided into 12 hours, you will now divide the minutes by 12 giving you in hours and minutes the amount of time that each planetary hour will consist of.
Number a separate sheet of paper from one to twelve. Because the first Planetary Hour will begin at Sunrise, write down the time at which the Sun will rise beside number one.  Now add the previously determined amount of time of each Planetary Hour, in hours and minutes, to the time for Sunrise to determine when the first Planetary Hour will begin and end on that day and write that down.  Continue this formula until you have determined the window of time for each of the 12 hours. 

Now look at the chart HOURS OF THE DAY, for the appropriate hour.  Some witches choose to work magick in the same hour that corresponds to the day on which they work their magick.  For example, if you are doing a love spell you would do it on a Friday, which is ruled by Venus, in the Hour of Venus. However, there will be times in which you can’t do your work in the hour that you desire.  In these cases, you may want to use the energy of another hour in which you do your magick. In the example above, you may choose to work your love spell in the hour of Mercury to open communication between you and another in order to obtain love.

For the Night 

Subtract the time of Sunset from midnight to determine the amount of darkness between those two time periods, and add the time for Sunrise.  Since the Planetary Hour tables are divided into 12 hours, you will now divide the minutes by 12 giving you in hours and minutes the amount of time that each planetary hour will consist of. the following day, giving you the amount of night time hours for that day in hours and minutes. Convert the hours to minutes by multiplying them by 60 and then add the minutes together giving you the amount of minutes between Sunset and Sunrise the following day.

Number a separate sheet of paper from one to twelve. Because the first Planetary Hour will begin at Sunrise, write down the time at which the Sun will rise beside number one.  Now add the previously determined amount of time of each Planetary Hour, in hours and minutes, to the time for Sunrise to determine when the first Planetary Hour will begin and end on that day and write that down.  Continue this formula until you have determined the window of time for each of the 12 hours.

Now, look at the Chart Hours of the Night, to determine the appropriate hour for your working.
