Monday’s Witch is tranquil and white
Tuesday’s Witch wields fire and might
Wednesday’s Witch is wacky but wise
Thursday’s Witch keeps their eye on the prize
Friday’s Witch mixes coconut and lime
Saturday’s Witch can bend space and time
but the Witch who works on Sunna’s day will always bring bright blessings their way
Everyday, as you’re getting ready to leave for work or hit the town with your friends or look for that perfect new job, you take stock of the general vibe of the day so you know how to approach it. You stick your head out the window to check the weather, notice how quick the second hand on your clock is moving, and try to read the dispositions of those you meet on the street. Every day has it’s own energy and when you walk out the door in the morning (or the afternoon, no judgements!) as a good little witch, it’s best to have your magickal arsenal backing you up!
The word “correspondences” doesn’t sound hella interesting or witchy, so don’t think of this as a post about magickal daily correspondences, think of this as your witchy weather report for the days of the week! Much like a daily horoscope (like the ones from Broadly, which I LOVE and check religiously), these daily bits of astrological magick will tell you the kind of spells to focus on, colours to wear and use, witchy tools to wield, or just in general how to be the best witch you can be that day. When you combine this daily witchery with things like moon phases, current astrolgoical phases, and the season you’re in with your own witchy intuition you have a fully fledged magical almanac.
One of my favourite things about daily magick is that it helps break up ruts and monotonous magical slumps. It gets you thinking magickally every day and gives you small things to focus on. Over time this builds into a great daily practice. You don’t have to be an expert, you don’t have to write your own horoscope or even be fully versed in astrology. I’m not! Every day and once a month I read a hororscope from Broadly, I get weekly and monthly astrology reports from Georgia Nicols in my inbox, and I love the Hoodwitch’s weekly witch tips. When we move into astrological seasons I trust other astrologers to give me the highlights, and the same with the astrological signs of the moon. I use that info from those brilliant people, with my own witchy knowledge of daily magick to give myself daily witchy forecasts so I have a head start on the day. I use a magickal day planner to keep it all in and make it look pretty and colourful so I can start the day off right. (OK SO YEAH I’M AN OFFICE SUPPLY NERD, OK??)
This week I’ll be posting about the energy of the day every morning so you can start your day off right and maybe do a little magick.

The name Thursday comes from the Norse god Thor (Thor’s Day!) and before that was associated with Jupiter. Gods of thunder both. It’s a strong day of prosperity, wealth, stability, and abundance.
Thursday’s earth energy is best expressed, I think, through deep and earth smells and herbs like sage and patchouli. Patchouli is associated with wealth and luxury, as well as love and lust. It smells a lot like fresh and wet earth (yes, DIRT) and is very deep and full. Sage is grounding and keeps the energy of your home running smoothly and effectively. It also cleanses your space, and invites good spirits in. Clove, Nutmeg and Cinnamon are said to bring wealth and good luck into the home. Finally, the mighty oak tree is the ultimate symbols of stability and the earth element. Carrying acorns is said to bring good fortune, and to ensure a long life. Placing an acorn in a windowsill lets the gods of thunder and lightning know you’re thinking of them, and protects your home from lightning strikes.
As an earth day, Thursday is an especially good time to wear or work with the magic of stones. Turquoise is a stone of wealth, luxury, and protection from negativity. That’s what makes it such popular stone for jewellery. It’s also the birth stone for Capricorn, which is the strongest earth sign in the zodiac and is associated with confidence, efficiency and hard work. Bloodstone is a stone of both earth and fire, it attracts wealth and business which also providing a strong foundation on which to grow success. Jade has long been associated with wealth and luck, and is a popular stone in Chinese businesses and jewellery for this reason. Tree agate, like all other agates, is pretty easy to find and a lot of people seem to gloss over it, but it’s an awesomely earthy crystal that I keep on my desk at all time. It’s a quiet and gentle crystal that helps connect you to the earth and keep you balanced and focused. It’s also a good working stone for those involved with activist causes, especially if they are earth and nature related. Finally, it clears energy blockages between you and the earth and invites in abundance and prosperity.
Types of Thursday Magick: attracting money and wealth, grounding, spells for good health and a long life, fertility, anything to do with home and hearth, leadership, spells for success in business or in life, magickal work to help you discover your life’s purpose, helping legal matters,
Tarot: No surprise, all the tarot cards associated with Thursday are from the earth suit of pentacles. Pentacles is also the suit of abundance, work and physical things. The Ace of Pentacles is about building a solid foundation for success and stability in life. Meditate on it at the beginning of the day before starting out to work. The Nine of Pentacles reminds you that after you work hard, you deserve to relax and soak it in. It’s easy to get lost in work, use the Nine of Pentacles to remind yourself to be proud of your accomplishments. The Ten is the card of ultimate satisfaction in all things of this earth – home, family, work, wealth, and emotional well-being. Use this card as a focus tool to help you complete your goals.
Dress for magickal success: Today is a day for earth tones and stones that make you feel like you’ve got this. Think of and exemplify luxury – fabrics like silk and accessories that make it look like you’ve already arrived. A professional, tailored look is perfect for Thursdays, and try to include jewellery with a high price tag, or that represents success and wholeness like family heirlooms, class rings, pins that show off accomplishments.
Whenever I teach a class on daily magick I like to start by asking everyone to guess what they think the general vibe of each day is based on what usually goes on in their own lives, and thursday is always a day of money or productivity or getting stuff done and you know why? It’s pay day! It’s also right before the end of the week for a lot of people so there is a mad dash to do their best before the weekend. You may already feel a surge of work ethic, or spend your day paying bills and making sure your finances are where they should be, which is perfect. It’s also a great day to do some magick to attract money, especially if you have the weekend off and have plans or expenses coming. Light a candle, make some green rice or a money mojo bag and get out in the world. I like to go to the bank/credit union (or somewhere else that symbolizes money) and either collect a little dirt or even leave a little something shiny to keep good financial luck flowing.
