Some of the Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondence for Tuesday



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.
