Tuesday packs a punch of firey Mars energy. This is a great day for any spell work that is on the combative side. Anything dealing with protection, banishing, and the like will benefit from this energy.

From Gypsy Wolf

Tuesday is the third day of the week.  The name is derived from the Nordic sky god in charge of law, order, justice, and war, Tiw (Saxons), also known as Tyr (Scandinavians), Ziu (S. Germans), Tiuz or Tiwaz (N. Germans).  In the Roman calendar the corresponding day was Dies Martis, the day of Mars, god of war and agriculture, originally known as Ares in Greek mythology.  The sacred symbol of all of these deities is the spear.

Zodiac: Aries & ScorpioThe guardian of this day is Samael, and the ruling planet is Mars. This is a combustive combination.  Why? Well, because Mars is considered a planet (and a god) of aggression, war and conflict as well as red hot passion.  And Samael has a dicey reputation. His name in Hebrew means ‘blind to God’ and/or ‘poison of God’.  By some experts in angelology, Samael is thought to be the angel of death, and/or a dark angel.  However, the Judaic Kabbalah references Samael as the ‘severity of God’.  In this context Samael was commanded by his superiors to essentially do all the dirty work that the ‘nice’ and ‘pretty’ angels didn’t want to do. Affiliated with Tuesday, Samael and the planet Mars assert an energetic message that says: “This day is likely to bring conflict. But do not question the power of your influence over adversity. Assert your will, fight, refuse to let the poison of negativity overwhelm you.”
