Magickal Days of the Week – Tuesday

Game of Life
Magickal Days of the Week – Tuesday

Named for the Norse god Tyr, who was a deity of heroism and combat, Tuesday is a very martial sort of day – color associations include bright red and oranges, as well as warrior-like metals such as iron and steel.

The ancient Romans called this day Martis, after the warrior god Mars – other deities associated with Tuesday include Ares, the Morrighan, and other gods of battle and glory. Red gemstones like rubies and garnets come into play on Tuesdays, as do herbs and plants such as thistles, holly, coneflowers and cacti – you’ll notice these are all sharp, prickly plants!

One of the interesting – and more than a little amusing – aspects of Tuesday magic is that in addition to war and conflict against your enemies, this is a day also associated with marriage. You can also use this day of the week for magical workings connected to protection and initiation. Use Tuesday to assert yourself, make a mark and stake your claims.

The Properties of Iron

Alchemy Comments

The Magickal Properties of Iron

 

Iron in its’ pure form is found in Meteorites. Used for defensive magick to deflect negativity. Iron stops the flow of psychic energy and is used for healing the self when one feels emotional wrought or is under psychic attack, in this way it deflects negative energy. Iron inscribed with symbolic Mars is worn for protective and defensive magick. Also you can take iron nails and insert them in white or blue candles for protection and defensive magick. A talisman of iron is said to increase physical strength. Envisioning a large iron gate of old during a protection spell helps to mentally keep negative energy away.

Calendar of the Sun for November 18th

Calendar of the Sun

18 Blutmonath

Angrboda’s Blot

Color: Black
Element: Fire
Altar: On a black cloth set a vase of bare oak branches with the dried leaves attached if possible, three lit red candles, a horn of mead, a wooden heart burned to ashes, and an iron knife.
Offerings: Ashes smeared on the face. A promise to see ugliness with new eyes.
Daily Meal: Coarse dark bread. Mushrooms.

Invocation to Angrboda

Hail, Hag of the Iron Wood!
From thy womb came
The Lady of Death,
Dark mistress of the shades;
The wolf of destruction,
The serpent all-encompassing.
Strong one who stands alone,
Who defends her children
No matter how ugly they might be,
Who defends her spouse
Even when all others revile him,
Who would die for her loved ones
Even when they are imperfect.
Your children exiled or imprisoned,
Yet the tide of death and destruction
Was not slowed an inch.
Hail, Lady whose heart
Was burned to ash by those
Who would not look upon ugliness
Lest they see in it a dark mirror
Of their own bright souls.

Chant: Angrboda Angrboda
Hag of the Iron Wood

(All step forth and take a handful of ashes from the burned heart and smear it on their faces. The horn of mead is passed around and the remainder poured out as a libation. The candles are put out, the iron knife is laid on the floor, and all step over it as they leave.)

Choosing Your Fire Dish

Choosing Your Fire Dish

I have seen beautiful copper fire dishes on metal legs for sale in garden centers which are not expensive and need no adaptation.

Alternatively, you can use any large fireproof metal dish either with metal legs or raised off the ground on heat-resistant bricks to avoid scorching. This can be very large cast iron wok or the bottom half of a domed iron barbecue, again the kind with legs.

A chimenea is also a good alternative and these are widely obtainable, as is the less exotic incinerator base.

Iron Protection Spells

Iron Protection Spells

Iron provides protection 24 hours a day, whether you are asleep or awake.

  • Bend a used horseshoe nail into a ring

  • An iron bracelet reinforces the magickal protection capacities of the hand

  • String iron beads and wear around neck and ankles

  • For protection while you sleep, slip a knife or horseshoe under you pillow

  • If you prefer not to keep anything that hard in bed, a sword or fireplace poker can be kept under the bed

  • No need to keep anything in or under the bed:  sleeping in a bed crafted from iron creates an island of safety, reinvigorating health, creativity and fertility while you sleep.
