Today is Tuesday, ruled by Mars. Sacred to the god of war, this is a good time to prepare for conflict. Sometimes disputes resolve gracefully; other times, you must assert yourself in ways that other people just won't like. Use this charm to store power for when you need to say no and make it stick. You will need a square of red cloth, red thread, and a red stone such as a garnet. You'll also need at least one Mars herb such as garlic, thistle, or pepper, and an essential oil like dragon's blood, galangal, or ginger. Bundle the herb and stone into the cloth, add one drop of essential oil, and tie with thread. Focus on absorbing the Mars energy of the day. When you need the stored power, apply one drop of essential oil to the bundle and one to your wrist, and carry the bundle with you.
