Zodiac recipes: Aries Incense

Posted by

FrankincenseWhen making your Aries incense, compound on the day when the sun enters Aries if possible, after it is fully in the Sign. Failing that, work on a Tuesday, the day sacred to Mars, and in the Hour of Mars on that day. Mars rules Aries.  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 Aries 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.
