Planetary Magick

Planetary Days And Their Applications: Mercury

Wednesday, the day of Mercury, is good for spells to assist money-making ventures.

Mercury is also good, for spells in clear communication, persuasion, adaptability and versatility.

As well as spells for improving memory, and sharpening logic, for learning, examinations, and tests, for mastering new technology, for short-distance or brief breaks, and for conventional methods of healing, especially surgery.

It is also potent for business negotiations, overcoming debts, repelling envy, malice and spite and those who would deceive.

For this reason, Mercury spells must always be used with honest intent.

Wednesday is also traditionally associated with divination.

Mercury, the planet nearest the Sun, completes its orbit in only eighty-eight days and so is named after the fleetfooted messenger god who, like his Greek predecessor, Hermes, carried the healing caduceus.

He is also linked with the Anglo-Saxon god, Woden, after whom Wednesday is named.

Mercury hour spells are good for finding a quick way out of difficulties and for melting rigid opinions in others.
