3. Why are Days Seven?
Have you wondered? Why aren’t the days of week 5 or 10 or 12? Why 7? Is there special power in it? Well YES!
Seven are the Days, Seven are the ‘Planets’ of ancient Witches
In the ancient World, astrologers and mages worked with the energy of the ‘7 Planets’. These 7 celestial bodies – which are not all planets – embody the diverse magical forces and energies from which everything is born into creation. Each ‘planet’ has a distinct vibration that can be directed and channeled in every magical work.
- Monday is the Moon’s Day, the day of Artemis / Diana – Goddess of the Moon
- Tuesday is Tyr’s / Ares / Mars’s Day – God of War
- Wednesday is Woden’s / Hermes’s / Mercury’s Day – God of Communication and Knowledge
- Thursday is Thor’s / Zeus’s / Jupiter’s Day – all God of Lightning although Zeus is also King of Gods
- Friday is Freya’s / Aphrodite’s / Venus’s Day – Goddess of Beauty and Love
- Saturday is Saturn’s / Krono’s Day – old God of Time
- Sunday is Sun’s / Apollo’s Day – God of the Sun
4. Why do we make Tattoos?
A tattoo is an ancient form of art appearing in different ancient cultures throughout history. Our modern word ‘tattoo’ comes from the Tahitian word tatau which means “to mark something”. Does this remind you of something? Maybe the Witch Marks?
“Tattoos are like stories — they’re symbolic of the important moments in your life.” – Pamela Anderson
Tattoos are in fact Witch Marks
Tattoos are similar to the Marks of the Witches. It’s a sacrifice we make to our bodies in order to connect deeper with what the symbol we chose represents. An eternal mark on our mortal bodies can also pass through our incarnations. So please, before you decide which tattoo to do on your body, choose wisely the meaning and symbolism!
5. Why do we wear our wedding ring on our ‘ring finger’?
Haven’t you always wondered? Why do we choose to put our Wedding Rings on the ‘Ring Finger’? Well, as you can understand, the name of the finger itself actually implies its participation in Wedding Rituals.
Why a Golden Ring on Ring Finger?
This part of Wedding Rituals actually dates back to ancient years. First of all, the Ring symbolizes Wholeness and Unity. It’s the perfect shape of Alchemists and it’s linked with Ouroboros – the symbol of eternity.
Now, why on Ring Finger? This finger is associated with the Sun and Apollo, the god of all blessings. When we ‘activate’ this finger we actually activate the power of the Sun and Apollo in us. As every ‘Planet’ is associated with one Metal, the Sun and Apollo are associated with Gold. Thus, to properly activate the Ring Finger we need to wear a Golden Ring on it.

Therefore, in Wedding Rings, we conjure the blessings of Apollo and the Sun, to bring timeless happiness.
