The Principles of Magick : Part IV 
The Art and Science of 'Timing'

        SECTION 1: Selecting the Proper Days for your magickal goals.

            When planning a Ritual, it adds power to your working to time it so that your goal coincides with the Day and other events. If you have time to plan a head, you will want to consider several factors, day, planetary hours, and the moons position in the Zodiac. By tuning into the Celestial rhythms that are best suited to your workings, you draw upon stronger environmental energies. Below is a table of days and their influences. Also by timing more than just your rituals, but your meditations and other excersizes with the appropriate energies, your workings turn out much more effective and powerful.
