Thursday is the day of Jupiter, the largest of the planets and said to be the most powerful. Spellcasters would be wise to use this day for attempting wealth, success and prosperity spells.
Thursday is also associated (in Greek mythology) to Thor – Thor’s day – and some even say that Jupiter and Thor are one in the same. Both are strong and powerful, yet wise and just. Try a small prayer to Jupiter before commencing any ritual on Thursday as a sign of respect. This is the proper day of the week to perform spells and rituals involving luck, happiness, health, legal matters, male fertility, treasure, wealth, honour, riches, clothing, money, desires, business, group pursuits, joy, laughter, and expansion.
Spell to Stop a Person From Harming You
You will need:
Spoonful of used coffee grounds
Light a white candle and your favorite incense. Meditate a short while on the problem. Invoke the Spirits of Protection.
Take a piece of brown paper, like from a grocery bag, on it use a lead pencil to print and write the name of the offending person or people. If unknown people are involved, also print and write, ‘and all persons unknown that are causing harm to me!’
Cross off each line forcefully and say, forcefully:
I freeze name(s) to be bound by this spell,
unable to cause any more harm to (name(s)!
As I will, so mote it be!
Put a spoonful of used coffee grounds on the brown paper, fold it small, and place it in the freezer. Leave it until the problem is completely resolved. I wrap a rubber band, string, twist tie, or what have you, to keep the coffee grounds from falling out of the paper. You can also use a zip lock bag.
Be sure and burn the candle completely up. Don’t use that candle for a different purpose.

Spellcrafting for Thursday
EGG WISH SPELL FOR FERTILITY
“On an egg whose shell is brown or pink,
Sign these signs in grass-green ink.
[a simple sun, a male symbol, an encircled equilateral cross, a female sign,
then an upside-down 5-pointed star]
Bury it deep in an earth-filled pot,
Let this stand where the sun is hot;
Sow on its surface seeds of grass,
Water them well while nine weeks pass
Gather the crop, bind it with thread
Let it hang always above your bed
SACHET FOR THE EXPECTANT WITCH
To be used in the bath or as a dream pillow to soothe away the discomforts of pregnancy.
1/2 tablespoon lemon balm 1 teaspoon lemon verbena 3 tablespoons lavender
2 tablespoons rose petals 1 teaspoon mugwort 7 drops of pure jasmine oil
Mix together all of the ingredients in your cauldron or a wooden bowl.
Cut a three-inch square piece of light blue cloth (a natural fiber always works best).Place some of the herbal mixture in the center and tie up the loose ends with some matching yarn. While doing this, visualize the discomforts being soothed away. When you’re ready, either toss it into a warm bath or hide it in the batting of your favorite pillow (or, if you want it to stay your favorite pillow for very long, put it in your pillowcase) and you’ve got a special dream pillow. Pleasant dreams!
Finally, it’s Sunday, the official day of rest. Not only do Christians acknowledge this day but I’m sure many pagans appreciate this day, as well. Everyone needs rest and a lot of people need a good day to worship their creator (whomever or whatever that may be), however they deem fit to do so. With the Sun being the central theme of many ancient rituals, Sunday just seems to fit, in name and theory.
Sunday Pagan Worship
What you will need:
1 bell (optional)
Find a quiet, private area, without distraction. Sit down in a comfortable position. Take a few, slow, deep breaths. Allow your body to become very relaxed. When you have done this, if you brought a bell, ring it seven times. Allow the last ring to resonate throughout your body. If you have something you want to say, to God or The Goddess, now would be a good time to do this. When you are finished, say this prayer or chant:
“I know there is a higher
being than me.
I am not alone.
You are with me,
Day and night.
You’ve rode the lows
And watched the heights.
If angels are real,
I’m sure to have a guardian.
I am so thankful
And so grateful for your hand.
You’ve blessed me.
You’ve fed me
You’ve quenched my thirst
And even dressed me.
And Blessed Be.”
When you are finished, ring the bell seven more times, to end the ceremony

As per the August 17, astrology people born on this day are cheerful people but may tend to be authoritative or demanding individuals but especially with their family members. You would do better if you stayed in your lane, Leo.

Monday is ruled by the moon – an ancient symbol of mystery and peace. Monday is a special day for mothers as the cycle of the moon has long been associated with the female menstrual cycle.

This is the proper day of the week to perform spells and rituals involving agriculture, animals, female fertility, messages, reconciliation’s, theft, voyages, dreams, emotions, clairvoyance, home, family, medicine, cooking, personality, merchandising, psychic work, Faerie magic, and Goddess rituals.
Magickal Applications for Mondays
Monday is named after the moon. The Latin term for Monday is Dies Lunae (“moon’s day”); in the Old English language, this day was Monandaeg; in Greek, it was Hermera Selenes. All of these different names and languages translate to the same thing: the “day of the moon.”
Working with the different phases of the moon is an important skill that takes a bit of time for Witches to learn. So why not cut to the chase and experiment with the day of the week that is dedicated to the moon in all of its magickal energies and aspects?
Magickally, Monday encourages the lunar energies of inspiration, illusion, prophetic dreams, emotions, psychic abilities, travel, women’s mysteries, and fertility.

Monday & The Perfect Corresponding Spell
When dealing with a weekly spell guide, Mondays are thought to be the logical day for money, love, time and meditation spells. Since Mondays are thought to be the start of the work week, it gives plenty of time for a Monday spell to gain strength throughout the rest of the week.
Time Spells – Hand of Time Spell
Items you will need:
Hold both of your hands in front of you. Stare at your hands, noticing your palms and fingers, for about thirty seconds. Then, say this chant one time:
From watching clocks.
For every ten docked.
Seconds in a minute
1440 in a day.
Stop a few,
For singing birds
And trees that sway.”
This should feel like time has slowed-down and allowed you to appreciate life more.
A Witch’s Week of Spells and Activities
Helga C. Loueen
I am sorry we are almost half way through July and I have yet to do any of the regular daily posts. I have had trouble getting my laptop to connect to my cousins internet besides cleaning and unpacking, which still isn’t done. I am living about 30 minutes outside of a very small town and it may take a month or two for the gentleman that hooks up internet stuff to come out here as he lives and works 1 1/2 hours away so it doesn’t pay for him to travel here just to do one hook up. I ask for your continued patience and understanding when it comes to me getting posts done. Thank you for sticking with us during this time of change.
The 515 mile move has been harder on me than I thought it would be. At 62 I cannot do as much in a day as I use to. I am going to set tomorrow aside to hopefully get the past birthday horoscopes posted. To find the one you want click on the corresponding date on the calendar on WOTC Homepage. If the square is blue that means something has been posted on that date. I am also going to schedule all the regular daily posts through this coming Sunday, July 19th. To post this I am using my cellphone data unfortunately I do not have enough data to be able to post daily and I had thought I would have an internet connection by now. That’s a city person’s way of thinking but now I’m a rual person and have to learn that things run much slower here.
Thank you to everyone that made a donation to help with my moving costs!!! I very much appreciate it. I hope to be virtually with you all tomorrow. Blessed be sisters and brothers.
