Tuesday – Mars Seals and Sigils

Tuesday – Ruled by Mars (Ares), Warrior God

Zodiacal planetary magick can be used to invoke energy archetypes. The focus of planets can strengthen rituals with astrological intelligence, spirits, and visual numerological sigils and seals to lock in invocations or evocations. Zodiacal magick is a powerful tool to raise or influence human personality, events, circumstance, or program the subconscious mind to carry out the will of purpose. Planetary magick can be used along with incense, herbs, animism, visualization, gemstones, elements, sound healing, colors, focusing on deities,  and other energetic metaphors for specific archetypal energies.
