Planetary Incense Recipes: Mars - Part 2

Posted by

Lesser GalangalWhen making your Mars incense, compound on the day when the sun enters Aries or Scorpio if possible, after it is fully in the Sign. Mars rules Aries and Scorpio. Failing that, work on a Tuesday, the day sacred to Mars, and in the Hour of Mars on that day. Make sure the Moon is Waxing to increase the positive power of your work. Pound the ingredients together into a rough form or a good powder, depending upon your preference. Consecrate your incense with the energy of Mars at the time of mixing it, if desired. Focus your will and intent. Ancient sources like the Orphic Hymns provide good invocations if you do not have one of your own. Store the result in a dark jar, sealed tight. Store somewhere dry.
