"When you let go of how you think things should be,
you will have a new found love of how things are"
- Jasmeine Moonsong
Tuesdays are ruled by Mars, the planet that represents war, courage and conflict. It’s a day to recharge your personal power. It is a very strong day and the focus will be on passion, sex, courage and aggression. If you need to be courageous in something today would be the day to take that on. Working with spells today? Choose to work with spells involving self-assertion, energy, passion and courage. If you are working with stones today choose rubies, star sapphires, or emeralds. Use topaz for amulets, and Iron in talismans.
Tonight's Moon is Waning, Fourth Quarter with 1% visibility. The Waning Moon is a time for study, meditation, and little magickal work except magick designed to banish harmful energies. The Waning Moon represents the Goddess in her Crone aspect. It’s a time to celebrate the wisdom gained through life. The next important Moon Phase for your magickal workings is the New Moon on September 5, 2013.
We start our day with the Moon in Leo. The Moon in Leo draws emphasis to the self, central ideas, or institutions and away from connections with others and other emotional needs. People can tend to be melodramatic. At 1:53 this afternoon the Moon begins her journey to Virgo arriving tomorrow at 6:45 in the morning. While the Moon makes her journey she will be void of course or between signs. During this time we want to minimize our actions involving anything important. This is a good time to read, relax and exercise. The magickal color of the day is Scarlet and the incense of the day is Ginger. Have an amazingly magickal day!
Much Love and Many Blessings,
