In talisman magic, one of the most important aspects is the correct way of calculating the time. To properly calculate the hours, daily and night ones, the Arabs have taken the Indian method of marking the time from sunrise until sunset, so that way, the day starts as soon as the sun appears in the east. As soon as the sun goes down, the nighttime begins. That marks the first hour of the day or the night. However, depending on the annual age, the sun rises and sets at different times so the hour is shortened or extended, therefore it does not always last 60 minutes. Usually, at the time of spring and autumn equinoctial, day and night last 12 hours, and then it is not necessary to count hours. But in all other cases, you need to calculate hours, as then one regular hour has more or less than 60 minutes. Therefore, the person who deals with talisman magic must follow at what time the sun, to calculate how much time goes from sunrise until sunset.
Anyone who has seriously studied talismanic magic has most certainly come across a dozen different explanations about the meaning of the planetary hours. Let’s take for example those related to Wednesday.
The first example
The first hour belongs to Mercury, and the name of his angel is Mikail, although it was said that he is called Kursayayil and Sarafina. In that hour you need to work and write everything that will be useful to you. You should work in the second hour also belonging to the Moon, his angel is Jibrail, for positive and negative goals, since his hour is suitable for everything.
Ignore the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth hours.
Work in the seventh hour belonging to Venus, the name of her angel is Anyail, and in it write all that is for love, to unite man and woman.
The first hour belongs to Mercury: it does everything related to love and lovers’ meetings.
The second hour belongs to the Moon: it does nothing.
The third hour belongs to Saturn: it does everything that aims to cause disease.
The fourth hour belongs to Jupiter: making talismans for good intentions.
The fifth hour belongs to Mars: beware in this hour of court processes and officials.
The sixth hour belongs to the Sun: travel and makes only talismans for positive goals.
The seventh hour belongs to Venus: it does all that is good and commendable.
The eighth hour belongs to Mercury: write down everything that causes children to cry and evil looks.
The ninth hour belongs to the Moon: it does nothing.
The tenth hour belongs to Saturn: favorable for all good intentions and addressing the authorities.
The eleventh hour belongs to Jupiter: write everything for connection and success in court processes.
The twelfth hour belongs to Mars: it does everything that serves divorce and hate.
Certain authors have simplified all of the above quite a bit, which we can see in the following example.
The Sun, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are considered male planets, their strength is stronger during the day. Mercury is a hermaphrodite, that is, it possesses male and female characteristics to the same extent, and its strength is equal during the day and night. Venus and the Moon are female planets and their power is more pronounced during the night.

On Monday, the great angel Jibrail and the ruler of the jinn Abyad were created, and the most suitable time for magical work is in the afternoon.

On Thursday, the great angel Surfayail and the ruler of the jinn, who is called Shamhurush, were created, and the most suitable time for magical work on this day is when the sun rises or sets.
On Friday, the great angel Anyail and the ruler of the jinn Barqan were created, and the most ideal time for occult work is when the sun sets.
