Planetary Hours

You may choose to schedule your ceremony or spell during a specific planetary hour if there are no helpful lunar or solar influences in the near future or you may wish to schedule your ceremony during the corresponding planetary hour on the day you have chosen in order to bring as much planetary energy into your working as possible.

To calculate planetary hours, you can use this tool: or follow the directions below:

Planetary hours are calculated from the time of sunrise one day to the time of sunrise the next. To calculate these hours you need the following information:
Time of sunrise on a given day in your specific location.
Time of sunset on that day in your location.
Time of sunrise the next day in your location.

You will first need to calculate the length of the day hours and the length of the night hours. To do this, you must calculate how many minutes there are from the time of sunrise that day to the time of sunset that day and divide that by twelve. This is the length of your day hours. Next, find out how many minutes there are between sunset and sunrise the next morning and divide that by twelve. This is the length of your night hours.

The first planetary hour of the day begins at sunrise and corresponds to the planetary day. Thus Monday's first hour corresponds to the moon, Tuesday's to Mars, Wednesday's to Mercury, Thursday's to Jupiter, Friday's to Venus, Saturday's to Saturn and Sunday's to the Sun. Then, using the length of the planetary hours you've already calculated, you add the minutes from the first hour (the moment of sunrise) and that gives you the second planetary hour and so on.

The hours go in this order (this is known as the Chaldean Sequence)
Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Saturn

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
