The planets influence magic a great deal. They have traditionally been the basis for many correspondences, those of the days of the week in particular. (See Time Correspondences) Each of the planets has been associated with a group of ritual intents that they are considered to rule. The influence of each planet is determined though these historic associations. When choosing the correspondences to include in your ritual take into consideration the nature of the planets and their areas of rulership.

The following tables provide you with a number of correspondences for the planets, choose the planet that most closely relates to your ritual intent and utilize it to add it's influence to your magic. You will note that not all the planets are used in some of these charts. This is due to the fact that many of them are based upon traditional or historic associations devised before all the planets were known. The planets used most frequently in magic are the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. You will note that some of the associations come from tarot, ritual magic, the Kabbala or other traditions. All are perfectly valid, choose according to your ritual intent and what feels right to you.
