THE SEVEN ANCIENT PLANETS AND MAGICK
Welcome to learning more about Planetary Magick…
Ancient occultist’s and magicians of the far off past considered the heavens above us as being composed of ever-expanding balls of spheres enclosed one into another like a Russian doll.
These energy like spheres were made up of spiritual substances and each of them occupied by the forces and energies of the seven known ancient planets, this is the basis of planetary magick.
These planets and energies expanded outward and you would travel through these spheres until you eventually entered the highest planes or heavens as they were known were the ultimate creator the God Force source exists.
All of these interconnecting spheres of energy and planes contained a vast array of spiritual beings; angels, gods and also demonic entities and demigods who controlled various aspects of nature and spiritual energy in the different planes, planetary magick encompasses a lot more than you may have been aware of.
Here again we obviously no longer believe this to be literally true in physical reality however there is still a spiritual and energetic validity to this concept in regards to planetary magick, as we know because we do work within our capacity with various spiritual, daemonic/angelic beings.
All of these energies also are interconnected with our conscious and subconscious minds and our auric spheres to some extent.
We could also say they are interconnected with our superconscious mind.
this is important to understand if your planetary magick is to be successful…in produce a desired result.
The separation is based on the formula of the planets are naturally synthetic, however, they are a very convenient way of classifying things so that we may meaningfully deal with them.
There are also now known to be more than seven ancient planets in our solar system, and in the future, this may even keep being added to, however as we are talking about the seven ancient planets we will simply concern ourselves to reference these seven.

There are hundreds of traditional correspondences.
You will have to research and find the appropriate incense or geometric shapes as well as gemstones herbs names of gods and several other things however I’m going to list a couple below that you might find useful in particular incenses.
Saturn triangle myrrh
Jupiter Square Cedar
Mars pentagram red pepper or tobacco
Sun hexagram frankincense
Venus heptagram benzoin
Mercury Octagram sandalwood
moon enneagram camphor
Fire red triangle cinnamon
Water silver crescent Cedar
Air blue circle sandalwood
Earth yellow square myrhh
Now one of the most effective and best ways in creating an appropriate atmosphere for working your magic with these energies is by the use of color.
However, feel free to use any color or shades that you desire or add more of what you want from other correspondences that you will learn through your own research and study.
The effect of color on your conscious mind is instant and rather automatic. You have doubtlessly already experienced this from your work in magic and in your own life.
However by building up the colors in your imagination, along with the appropriate arch typical idea behind the energies of the planets or these elements, you will be instantly attracting and drawing in its power into your own consciousness and inside your magical circle.
In other words, if you imagine an orange glow filling your circle while you also imagined the qualities of heat dryness and expansion you will be tapping into the spiritual energies of fire.
It really is that simple, once you have established this connection you will be able to direct that energy and any which way you like, or even contact the spiritual entities of fire.

When you work with the four elements the following colors of the traditional ones used by most magicians:

Mercury: Orange or mixed colors
moon: violet, blue or silver
Naturally, you can use whatever colors you feel like in your own practice however these that I’ve listed above were the traditional colors that have been used for many centuries.
These colors reference should be built up powerfully within your own imagination first in order to form the general atmosphere of your working, however, you can also use colored cloth’s or colored papers and candles in your ritual space if you have these things available.
