In many different traditions lighting a candle is a sacred action. It expresses more than words can express. It has to do with gratefulness. From time immemorial, people have lit candles in sacred places. You may want to begin or end your day by the sacred ritual of lighting a candle on this gratefulness. Or you may want to light a birthday candle for a friend. One single guideline is all you need: Slow down and do it with full attention.

GrannyMoon Says Today Is: Tiu’s Day or Tyr’s Day!

The day of Mars…also Ares, Tiwaz, Tiw (from whom it is named), Tuisco, and Tyr. Tuesday is ruled by Mars, whose Magickal influences are: Passion, courage, aggression, and protection. Tuesday comes under the influence of Mars, the planet associated with vitality, passion, ambition, and raw, unabashed power.

Mars energy makes the mind acute, and the body restless; therefore, on Tuesday we are likely to exert ourselves physically and take action to achieve goals. This day is dynamic and high-spirited, and the prevailing energies may include carelessness and destructiveness as well, so it is good to be cautious—especially while traveling.

Tuesday is the proper day of the week for spell work based on justified wrath, wearing red and using iron or amethyst. Money, enemies, courage, energy. Wear a ruby, star sapphire, or emerald. Use topaz in amulets.

Today’s Magickal Influences ~ Destination, War, Courage, Surgery, Physical Strength

Today’s Goddesses: Aset [Isis], Soorejnaree, Pingalla, Anna, Aine, Danu, Yngona, Bellona, Aida Wedo, Sun Woman

Perfumes: Hellebore, Carnation, Patchouli

Incense:   Lignum Aloes, Plantain

Color of The Day: Red

Heads Up For Tomorrow: Green, brown, amethyst, yellow

Lucky Sign: Tuesday Is The Lucky Day For Aries

Candle: Red

Heads Up For Tomorrow: Wear Green and Silver

Tuesday revolves around the energy of Mars, Tuesdays are good for business, mechanical things, buying and selling animals, hunting, beginning studies, gardening, sexual activities, and confrontation. This is a day for sex magick, energy, stamina, and health. As in the old saying, Tuesdays child is full of grace, is also good for success magick and defense against enemies.

Moon Moon, Mother Moon
Lunar Lore

The moon is called “triform,” because it presents itself
to us either round, or waxing with horns towards the east,
or waning with horns towards the west.
~ Brewer, “Dictionary of Phrase & Fable”.

The Egyptians worshipped the cat as a symbol of the moon,
not only because it is more active after sunset,
but from the dilation and contraction of its pupil,
symbolical of the waxing and waning of the night-goddess.
– Brewer, “Dictionary of Phrase & Fable”

The first season is of a frigid complexion, and this is “Winter”;
The second is of the complexion of Air, and this is “Spring”;
Then follows the third, which is “Summer”, and is of the complexion of Fire;
Lastly, there is the fourth, wherein fruits are matured, which is “Autumn”.

Goddess Of The Day: Chasca
Incan Festival of the Sun (Mexico)

Themes: Sun; Fire; Divination; Love
Symbols:  Sun; Fire; Flowers

About Chasca:  In Incan tradition, this Goddess created the dawn and twilight, the gentlest aspects of the sun.  Along with her consort, the sun god Inti, she uses light to draw sprouts from the ground and inspire blossoms.  Her rapport with Inti and her tender nature give Chasca associations with Inti and her tender nature give Chasca associations with love.  According to lore, she communicates to people through clouds and dew in a type of geomantic omen observation.

To Do Today:  In this ancient Peruvian festival, Incans reveled in Chasca’s and Inti’s power and beauty around the time when the sun reached its zenith.  People made offerings to the Goddess and God, followed by folk dances around ritual fires.  So, if you can hold an outdoor ritual today, build a fire and dance come dusk.  Allow Chasca’s inspiring, growth-oriented energy to fill you to overflowing.

Incans also burned old clothing in the ritual fire to banish sickness or bad luck.  Try this, or burn an emblem of your troubles instead.  As the token is consumed, Chasca transforms the negative energy into something positive.

If you’re fortunate to have a semicloudy day, go outside and ask a question of Chasca (ideally about relationships).  Then watch for a cloud that has a recognizable shape.  This shape represents your answer in some form.  For example, a heart would indicate that love is on its way!

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies – Symbol of Protection Spell

For a dose of protection, sit in the center of your home or room and breathe deeply. Enter a meditative state and visualize yourself in the center of a glowing pentagram. See a protective circle surrounding you and your home; then, surround this circle with an energy box. Visualize the box charging with red energy, then orange, yellow, blue, green, and purple. Ask your guides or deities to send you a symbol of protection and wait for an image, feeling, or sound to come to you. See this symbol surround and fill your energy box and protective circle. Feel a bit of this energy fill your personal protective circle. Thank your guides or deities for their blessings and go about your day.

“The Goddess Companion”

Goddess, comforter, holy one, you nourish the world from your bounty.
You are like our mother, turning to us whenever we are troubled.
You do not rest, not at night or in the shining day.
You never fail us.
You are the only one who can untangle fate’s knotted skein, you are
the only one who can pull back the planets when they threaten ill,
you are the only one who can disperse the storms of life and of the sky.
~Apuleius, The Golden Ass

Although not all divine figures are mother Goddesses, the endlessly abundant Goddess of Earth is frequently depicted as maternal toward her innumerable children – which include all animate and inanimate creatures as well as humanity. Such a figure serves as a reminder of the way we depend upon earth’s bounty in order to live. Without her ceaselessly replenishing systems, we could not survive.

The cycle of rain falling to earth, passing through the soil and flowing downriver to the ocean, only to be lifted to clouds again, is just one of the many self-regulating cycles of our planetary mother. We have, lost much of the many self-regulating cycles of grandeur that these cycles evoked in our forebears. Yet they continue to nourish us, just as a mother nourishes and protects her child.
