Planetary Magic

Since ancient times people were looking at the starry sky and tried to understand, what mysteries it holds and how it influences life on the Earth. They were sending their prayers and hopes to the distant stars. The priests of ancient Babylon were watching the night sky and learned to separate planets from the stars. But the bare eye can see only five planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. These five planets, together with the Moon and the Sun are very important in the traditional magic. However, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are still used in ritual magic and astrology.
 
Planets and stars are the sources of the powerful energy of the space and they can help in achieving any goal. They are connected to the days of the week, crystals, plants, incenses, and certain aspects of everyday life.
