Wednesday Magick

Ruler: Wodin, Mercury

Power Hours: Sunrise and the 8th, 16th and 24th hours following
Key Words: Success, creativity, communication

The word Wednesday is reminiscent of the Norse wind god Wodin, which is referenced in the popular rhyme verse "Wednesday's child is full of woe." This does not mean that those born on this day are full of sorrow or trouble. To be full of Wo (Wodin) means to be full of wind, to be spirited. Woden was such a powerful pagan god that the German church fathers changed the name of his day to Mittwoch, meaning midweek, in an attempt to exorcise his influence.

In the Spanish word for Wednesday, miercoles, we clearly see its connection to Mercury. 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.
