"S R" :
# I must say Magick Squares are very interesting.  
# But a little complicated. I wonder if their is 
# a book just on Magick Squares?

there are several. one of them is by W.S. Andrews
("Magic Squares and Cubes") and is a classic. I've
enjoyed reading through these and examining the
more complex and astounding selections than 
were made for Agrippa and the Golden Dawn symbols.

# Do every planet has a Magick Square?

that depends on what tradition you follow. older
systems don't include all the Planets because the
ancients couldn't see Uranus, Neptune and Pluto,
for example. I'm not sure before Agrippa, but in
Agrippa they are attributed to Planets as follows

      SQUARE ORDER ---   PLANET
      -------------------------
            3      ---   SATURN
            4      ---   JUPITER
            5      ---   MARS        
            6      ---   SUN 
            7      ---   VENUS 
            8      ---   MERCURY 
            9      ---   MOON 

with consideration of modern occult Planets
one might extrapolate the following novelty:

            3      ---   PLUTO 
            4      ---   NEPTUNE 
            5      ---   URANUS        
            6      ---   SATURN
            7      ---   JUPITER
            8      ---   MARS        
            9      ---   SUN 
           10      ---   VENUS 
           11      ---   MERCURY 
           12      ---   MOON 

based on the mean motility from Terra,
and thereafter achieve natural resonance.

alternatively an astronomical sequence
might be preferrable (or its reverse):

                      ASTRONOMICAL         EXPERIMENTAL
       -------------------------------------------------
            3      ---   PLUTO             SUN 
            4      ---   NEPTUNE           MERCURY 
            5      ---   URANUS            VENUS (GODDESS PENTACLE!)
            6      ---   SATURN            EARTH
            7      ---   JUPITER           MOON 
            8      ---   MARS              MARS
            9      ---   MOON              JUPITER
           10      ---   EARTH             SATURN (CYCLE COMPLETION)
           11      ---   VENUS             URANUS 
           12      ---   MERCURY           NEPTUNE 
           13      ---   SUN               PLUTO

# And can one simply create a unique Magick Square 
# by playing around with math & graphs?

yes, there are techniques for constructing them,
families, first divided up in even/odd groups and 
thence distributed depending on method of construct.
