Mars- Very unfortunate hour to begin anything good, be advised while taking trips (danger of thieves) and do not travel by sea. Good for all things regarding war, gaining courage, competitions, overthrowing enemies and to cause ruin.
Sun- Generally unfortunate, a very dangerous hour for any person to get sick in. Good for experiments regarding temporal wealth, hope, gain, fortune, divination or to dissolve hostile feelings and to make friends.
Venus- Good to enter any play, sport or pastime, good to fall sick in, but if a man falls sick in this hour, the disease comes from some venereal distemper, this hour is generally good to form any business relating to the woman’s concerns, good for marriage, forming friendships, for kindness and love and for traveling.
Mercury- Good for buying/selling, writing letters, to get sick in, begin a journey, to lend or or to borrow money, not good to buy houses or land. Good for promptitude in business, science and divination, apparitions and answers regarding the future. This planet is also good for matters regarding thefts, writings, deceit and merchandise.

The Hours of Saturn, Mars, and the Moon are all good for communicating and speaking with spirits- those of Mercury are for recovering things taken by spirits.
The Hours of Mars are effective for summoning souls who were slain in war.
The Hours of the Sun, Jupiter and of Venus are good for anything regarding love and kindness.
The Hours of Saturn, Mars and also the days on which the Moon is conjunct with them, or when they’re opposing are excellent for making rituals regarding hatred and discord.
The Hours of the Sun, of Jupiter, and of Venus, particularly on the days which they rule are good for all extraordinary and uncommon operations.
The Hours of the Moon are good for obtaining nocturnal visions, summoning spirits in sleep, and for preparing anything relating to water.
Experiments will always succeed better on the days and hour, especially when planets and the moon are not afflicted.
For those matters such as invocation of spirits and the recovery of stolen property, it is necessary that the Moon be in an Earth Sign: Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn.
For love, grace, and invisibility, the Moon should be in a Fire Sign: Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius.
For hatred, discord, and destruction, the Moon should be in a Water sign: Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces.
For experiments of a peculiar nature, the Moon should be in an Air Sign: Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius.
A New Moon is the best time to perform rituals for new beginnings, looking for a job, love and romance, banishing, psychic energy and healing.
A Waxing Moon is when the moon is the best time to perform spells for growth, initiation, enhancement, control, new projects, friendship, wealth, courage and luck. “Increase” is the key word with the increasing size of the Waxing Moon.
The Full Moon is the perfect time for many rituals including those for finding a job, money, passion, legal issues, manifestations, perfecting ideas and projects, creativity, divinations, protection, nurturing and serious healing.
The Waning Moon when the moon is less than half full and decreasing is the perfect time for discovering hidden knowledge, receiving visions, wisdom, reversing spells, removing unwanted negative energies, thwarting addiction or illness and releasing or cutting ties with attachments. Avoid using Moon energy when the Moon is void of course
If the above conditions are impossible, the time from the New until the Full Moon is proper for performing any of the experiments of which we have spoken above.
The Moon in decrease or wane is good for war, disturbances and discord. Likewise the period when she is almost deprived of light, is proper for experiments of invisibility, and of death. Do nothing while the Moon is in conjunction with the Sun, this is extremely unfortunate, and that you will then be able to effect nothing, Furthermore, if you wish to speak with spirits it should be on the day of Mercury and in his hour, while the Moon and Sun be in an Air sign.
