Daily Rituals to Create Magic in your Life
Rituals are an important part of our lives. Our future is not shaped by big decisions or events, but by our daily habits. What you repeatedly do — your choices — defines who you become.
Rituals give us a base and a certainty that is required for our wellbeing.
Rituals within the context of witchcraft are one step above a simple spiritual practice that we might create every day, and they usually require a more structured plan. They give us a sense of control and increase our performance by turning small, everyday acts into more significant ones. They add meaning and joy to our lives. When facing uncertain situations, rituals help us focus, deal with anxiety, or feel more confident. They are based on the faith that something great can happen to us.
Rituals are widely used to raise energy, hold energy, transmute energy, or release energy. The most important part of a magical ritual is the intention and emotions in which the ritual has been performed.

The effectiveness of a magical ritual is often determined by the experience and performance of the magician, who is thought to have access to unseen forces and special knowledge of the appropriate words and actions needed to manipulate those forces.
In early times people believed that the deities who resided in each of the known bodies in our solar system, presided over the days of the week. You can invoke the energy of a particular celestial body to aid your magic work by performing spells and rituals on the day that corresponds to the planet. You can apply this rule to anything you do in your daily life, even cooking or getting dressed.
