Lesson # 17: Magickal Correspondences

Now that you've learned the basics that go into creating a spell. You need to know some of the things that affect how a spell works or even how you might write a spell differently depending on moon phases, seasons, weather occurrences, and day of the week. I will also give you a basic idea of what herbs, colors, and stones are appropriate for different kinds of spells.

One of the biggest questions that I get is "Can you do a spell even if we're not in the right moon phase for it?"

The answer is yes, of course you can do any spell that is of immediate need. How you write the spell may be different though according to the phase of the moon but it is usually possible to perform any spell at any time. The only difference that doing the spell in the appropriate phase will do for you is that it will make the spell more powerful. So, if it is one that can wait for the right phase and time, then you should.

Below I am going to give you some basic correspondences to help you make good decisions when you are creating spells as we practiced in the last lesson.

Moon Phases

New Moon: Starting something new, beginnings, romance and love, health, and finding a new job.

Waxing or Growing Moon: Any positive magick including prosperity, love, success, luck, health, friendship, or success.

Full Moon: Excellent time for protection, divination, things of spiritual nature, or to increase the power of any spell that needs to be more powerful.

Waning or Decreasing Moon: Banishing spells; binding spells; getting rid of an addiction, illness, bad habit, or negativity.

Dark Moon: Fighting magickal attacks, bringing justice, and for exploring the darker part of ourselves for a better understanding of our passions and anger.

Days of Power

Sunday: Ruled by the Sun, power, health, prosperity

Monday: Ruled by the Moon, intuition, dreams, psychic ability, female fertility

Tuesday: Ruled by Mars, courage, physical strength, energy, breaking negativity

Wednesday: Ruled by Mercury, divination knowledge, wisdom, communications

Thursday: Ruled by Jupiter, luck, healing, male fertility, wealth, happiness, legal matters

Friday: Ruled by Venus, love, sexuality, marriage, friendship

Saturday: Ruled by Saturn, meditation, defense, communicating with spirits, psychic ability


Occurrences like storms, strong winds, or heavy rains can all be forces of power and energy which can make a spell done during these times even more powerful.

Rain and Snow can be considered a time to do spells associated with purifying, cleansing, even protection.

Bright Full Sun can be a great time for spells associated with fire as well as any spell meant to cause great happiness or prosperity.

Your Assignment

I would like you to research more correspondences on the net or in books. You will find that some will vary on opinion but this will give you a chance to decide for yourself and create your own set of correspondences for magickal uses. Once you have finished your research, create your own personal list for your Book of Shadows. I would also like you to practice with the timing and other correspondences in a simple spell like we did for the creating spells assignment. Then share with all of us at the class club about your experiences. Did you notice an improvement in your magick by using better timing? Also, share any special correspondences that you found in your research.

I would also suggest that you get a good herbalism, stones, oils, candle magick, and moon magick type book to add to your library. Scott Cunningham has several on these topics and he is easy to understand. You can find some of these books in our Book Store if you need to buy them.

Brightest Blessings,
