Under the guidance of Mercury; Wednesday is a day of swift activity, communication, correspondence, and phone calls. This is a good day for journalists, writers, poets, bargaining, hiring employees, and visiting friends.
Wednesday's angels are Raphael, Miel, and Seraphiel. All three of these angels function as guardians of the planet of Mercury. not much information can be found about Miel, but Seraphiel is a chief in the order of Seraphim. He seems to rank as the highest of the princes. Invoke him from the North.
On Wednesdays, the hour of sunrise and every eight hours after that are also ruled by Mercury, making these times of the day doubly blessed. These are the strongest four hours for ritual work. Check your local newspaper, astrological calendar, or almanac to determine when sunrise occurs.
