A white magician does not differentiate himself from his/her work. He or she is aware of the responsibility not only for client's desire, but for many other lives. He or she must be aware of what is s/he doing and why. Where do the impulses s/he feels come from? First, a magician has to understand this and control this for him/herself. Then, only then s/he can understand also others and have a proper influence – although we, as human beings, like to skip the first step! Very often we do not have a clarity about the situation and think we can simply light a candle and therefore influence others. This is absolutely wrong. First and foremost, one must be able to influence and control him/herself.
Magical work is mostly the work with analogies. It works with symbols. Whole magic is based on the principle “like with like”. That means, that using symbols and actual happenings in nature can support your work and amplify the magical effect. The most important used analogy, which supports desired result, is the huge power of planets.
One of the most important system is symbolism connected with the Moon and its lunar phases. They can be observed very easily and have strong impact on our planet (for example the ocean tides). The waxing, or growing moon is used as a symbol of something, what grows. During this phase mage practices spells for growth, increase or attraction. The waning, or shrinking moon symbolizes on the contrary decay, banishment and repulsion. The dark moon, or new moon, favors new projects, building protection and disposal. The full moon symbolises desire in its full power. Therefore it is linked with reflection, illusion and wholeness.
Magical work has always used the position of other planets in our solar system towards the earth. Every planet is connected with different day of the week, has different influences which themselves represent different aspects of human existence. Simply said, the success of your magical operation will be higher, if you do it on the favourable day. It is because good timing can increase and support the energy you put into the ritual. Monday is linked with the Moon and favours dreams, psychic activity and money. Tuesday is the day of the Mars, the planet of courage, will and defence. Wednesday is connected with Mercury, the planet of communication. Thursday is ruled by Jupiter, generous and expensive luck planet. Friday is the day of Venus, planet of love and harmony. Saturday is dedicated to Saturn, it is time for expulsion and protection. Sunday is dedicated to Sun, bringer of joy and success.
