Daily influences are important for magic practitioners and spell workers. Every detail is taken into account to better shape the energy being put into their work. This not only includes the ingredients being used in the spell or magical ritual, but also the phase of the moon, the date and time in the calendar year, time, and of course the day a magical work is being produced on.
This is a small cheat-sheet (perfect for an entry in your book of shadows) of the Day Influences which can be used in spellwork or rituals! My personal list was derived from a couple of different sources, and I hope it becomes useful in your own personal practice!
When creating spells, amulets, holding a ritual, or practicing other magical work, the day can greatly influence the energies being put into a spell. The days not only affect your work but are also affected themselves by the different energies used in magical work.
By using all your resources to select items which align with your goal, your spellwork or ritual work will become more efficient and accurate. This handy Daily influences sheet will help you when creating your plans for spell and ritual work.
