The planets rule over the days of the week. Saturn rules Saturday, the Sun rules Sunday, the Moon rules Monday, Mars rules Tuesday, Mercury rules Wednesday, Jupiter rules Thursday, and Venus rules Friday.
In addition to their rulership over the days of the week, the planets have dominion in turn over the hours of the day, and the underlying system, order, and connection between the rulership of the days and hours becomes apparent when it is noted that:
The planet for which any day is named rules the first hour after sunrise on that day.
Starting with the hour of sunrise on Sunday, which is ruled by the Sun, the next hour is allotted to Venus, the third to Mercury. Next come the hours of the Moon Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars. Then come the hours ruled by the Sun, Venus and all the other planets in the order given: Sun, Venus, Mercury, Moon, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars. This succession is followed in unbroken advance to the next Sunday morning when Mars rules the last hour of the week in his proper order and the Sun opens the new week with his beneficent ray.
Under this arrangement of succession started at sunrise on Sunday, the Moon rules the first hour of Monday, which is the 25th from the hour of the Sun, which ruled Sunday morning at sunrise.
Mars rules the first hour on Tuesday, which is the 25th hour from the hour of the Moon, which ruled Monday morning at sunrise.
And so on, through the other days of the week. This shows how the method of naming the days for the Planetary Spirits which have dominion over them, dovetails with the system of planetary hours, and both are rooted in a foundation of esoteric knowledge.
Suppose we want to help a friend obtain employment, and know a place where he would fit in. We remember that the Sun is a significator of those in authority and therefore the hours of the Sun are good in which to transact business with and ask favors of such people; and you will have the best chance of success if you apply at those times.
But it is also important to remember that the planet which rules the first hour of a given day has PRIME RULERSHIP during that entire day, and that the other planets are only subsidiary rulers with the day ruler. They are weakened or strengthened in proportion to the agreement or disagreement of their natures with the nature of the day-ruler. Thus, if you select a Sun hour on Saturday, which is tinged with the obstructive Saturn influence, your chances of success are not nearly as good as if you select a Sun hour on a Thursday, which is tinged throughout with the benevolent ray of its day-ruler Jupiter.
Or perhaps you have occasion as a matter of duty, to reason with someone who has a very short temper, and you know is apt to resent it and say or do something that you will both wish to avoid. Use the cold wet blanket of the Saturn hour on Saturn’s day, if possible, to put down and quench the martial spirit. The danger of a rupture will then be minimized to a wonderful extent, and you will probably both wonder with pleasant retrospection how well it went off.
Or, if it becomes necessary to stir someone who has fallen into habits of idleness wherefrom others are made to suffer, if it seems almost necessary to build a fire under him to make him move, compound the fire and energy of Mars as a day-ruler with his influence as an hour ruler, by talking to him on Tuesday. He will heed then if it is at all possible to get him started.
With Chronos you can:
. double-click on the glyph, a calendar window opens up where you can see planetary hour times for any given day or location.
. use of planetary hours, as anyone else who has studied the nature and influence of the various planets on the affairs of life may readily form an opinion. Experimentation and observation will soon make anyone proficient in the choice of the best times for doing the thing desired with the best chance of success. There are many who drag the stars into the gutter by perverted use of their influence for selfish ends, and endeavor to obtain an undue advantage thereby. But on certain occasions the planetary hours may be justly and beneficently used.
With Chronos you can also:
choose the best hour of the day depending on the nature of the particular planet involved:
You know the restrictive and delaying nature of Saturn. Projects started during a Saturn hour will carry with them the nature and characteristics of Saturn. Begin the construction of a building during a Saturn hour, and the building will last seemingly forever. A realtor in Massachusetts arranges for all closings and contract signings to occur during Saturn hours because Saturn is associated with real estate. She feels that, because of the enduring nature of Saturn, her real estate clients are less likely to change their minds. In matters other than real estate, it is not a good idea to sign contracts during a Saturn hour.
You know the expansive, cheerful, benevolent nature of Jupiter. Make your arrangements for travel during a Jupiter hour. Begin your trip during a Jupiter hour and you will probably be surprised to find no traffic where you expect it. In California, the freeways seem comparatively empty for trips started during a Jupiter hour. Wake up and start your day during a Jupiter hour, if you can, and enjoy the spirit of Jupiter all day.
You know the fiery, energetic nature of Mars. Think about it. Do not telephone people with whom you might argue unless it is your plan to start a fight. Wait for the next Planetary Hour. Or place the call earlier, during the Jupiter hour. If you can arrange it, avoid the Mars hour for starting a trip. Observe how aggressively people drive their cars during a Mars hour. See if awakening during a Mars hour makes you more energetic or contentious all day.
The benevolent nature of the Sun makes the Sun hour good for most activities. Ask any Leo. They will tell you that, if a meeting is called for a Sun hour, they feel that they are in charge. The Sun hour is generally good for most activities. Start social events, if possible, during a Sun hour. Latecomers will arrive during a Venus hour, which is also good. If you are uncertain about the start of another person’s action, such as the return of your phone call, call the person during a Sun hour. This way, you will probably hear from him during the Sun, Venus, Mercury, or Moon hours.
Ah, Venus! Everything seems to go better in a Venus hour. Venus hours are excellent for all loving encounters, for asking a favor, for starting a trip, for starting a creative project (painting, gardening, sewing), and for beauty parlor appointments. Try to schedule your wedding for a Venus hour.
Mercury is the planet of communication. Use Mercury hours to initiate all forms of communication, such as correspondence, telephoning, writing, short trips, teaching classes, and dealing with children. If transiting Mercury is retrograde, then these activities may be jeopardized and you might not want to start them at this time.
Check to see if the Moon is void of course or afflicted in the sky before you try to successfully use a Moon hour. If the transiting Moon is in good condition, then the positive characteristics of the Moon can translate into the Moon hour. The Moon hour is good for all public affairs, for dealing with women, the public, or your mother. Think of the Moon, the sign Cancer, and the fourth house characteristics of the Moon hour. Home affairs, family matters, and cooking are well attended to during Moon hours.
