At first there was no Hymn for Sunday. In the first editions of the Legifer & Clavis Magica, there were invocations for only six of the archetypes, the Sun omitted because the work was focused on Lefth Hand Path, the Moon Path. Sun is also the hardest one of the seven, since it is in the center of the hexagram of the other planets, and is part of all the others. Every possible problem of every other planets is magnified by Sun; it really is that "he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good" (Matthew 5:45). This also is the Satanic aspect of Sun, that it really makes all things possible, not just good things. Sun is not a just ruler like Jupiter, but a mad emperor, who is omnipotent but not omniscient. It is the definite power aspect, a great dynamo. I really used to loath Sun when I was young.
I remember from 2005 edition that sunday didn't have a hymn, so it was something that really catched my attention when I read the updated L&CM the first time. Sun is indeed a merciless tyrant, reveals everything and kills all possibility for mystery and inspiration. So a very satanic force to be reckoned with, so I'm happy it has a hymn now too.

I also loathed bright sunlight when I was young, and still do most of the time. But I've turned things around also; when I was in Nicaragua couple of years ago, I spent long perioids of time meditating directly under the sun. Staring towards the sun through closed eyelids and without the use of sunscreen letting the sunrays sting my skin like needles, while contemplating on sun as Sorath. It was a very powerful little practice.

At first sight I liked most the Mars and Saturn. But now they all feel so personally familiar that I really cannot say.

After some consideration I let my vote lie for Venus. It is very beautiful text, today is Friday so it is fresh in my mind. And it also always makes me think of Nefastos so a positive connection.

With that said I also like Saturn, and the Moon. Sun can go to hell for all I care :D

Concerning this, we truly represent the two opposite ends of the Red spectrum, due to my adoration of the Sun.

Moon, Venus and Saturn are close to my heart. My vote I seem to have given to Venus, for some intuitive reason unknown. Or maybe due to the fact that I embrace the saturnian currents more than probably is good for me, and the moon sways' me ever so violently back and forth in a torrent of emotions too brutal to handle. Out of these three Venus is probably the most stable.

The sun and can go to hell for all I care (and it seems I'm not alone with this). Mercury and Mars are reflections of my shadowy side, and difficult to work with. Difficulty not excluding the potential!

My favorites are probably Mars and Jupiter. In Mars I find certain kind of relief and Jupiter is the most strengthening of the hymns. I struggle most with understanding Saturn but I think I'm advancing with small steps. Other four are more neutral to me; Moon being one that is closest to Earth and thus probably easy to approach but more challenging in it's shadow aspects; Sun, I feel, is very benevolent but somehow "all over the place"; Mercury and Venus I find forming a pair that I try to approach as one - this approach could also be an advantage in understanding Sun and Moon together as both of them might get more problematic if they turn into the one eye above all, be it in negative or positive sense.
