What spells are best done on a Monday? This is the best time for any works of Lunar Magic and everything related to the Moon: deep emotions, intuition, mystery, and the element Water.
The name of Monday is derived from Middle English Monenday, originally a translation of Latin dies lunae, “day of the Moon”. Being ruled by the Moon, this is a complex day. Although it’s a time of beginnings and great vitality, it can also bring a certain level of confusion. The lunar cycles affect our emotions but the Moon is an energy powerhouse which offers guidance and protection.
