One important consideration in doing a magical ritual is the right timing for performing it. When is the right day and time to start or perform a ritual? Answers can vary depending on the magical tradition.
In the Philippine brand of occultism or magick, there is much emphasis on the day and the most popular day is a Friday. And among the Fridays that are available in the calendar, there is even a hierarchy. Any Friday will do but the ritual will even be more imbued with power if it is performed on the first Friday of the month. And then, there is the Friday of all Fridays — the Good Friday! If you can be patient and wait till it is Good Friday, you can even be more assured that your ritual will be more successful. It goes without saying also, based on the logic of the system, that if that particular Good Friday is also the first Friday of the month, then you have a double whammy in terms of gathering and focusing all the magical energies you can marshall to make what you want to happen through the ritual.
I do think we can improve on the system by combining it with elements from other traditions…(to be cont.)
