An out-of-print source, so possibly Naughty to mention it, but this is stated to be the case in Dorastor: Land of Doom, which is presumably still canon. Although, that gives the reason for the day as being Nysalor's choice, not Talor's.

Again, according to Dorastor: Land of Doom, the transformation is "without magical aid", and not part of their usual magics.
