Tuesday is the third day of the week. It follows Monday and precedes Wednesday. Tuesday is considered as one of the five work days. The Romans named this day after Mars, one of Earth’s closest planetary neighbors.
On Tuesday we are prompted to act. What we do is not so important as long as we stay active. If there are physical objects that need to be transported from place to place, this is the time to move them. Mars is not one to shy away from hard work, Difficult challenges are easily accepted and all assignments should be approached in that light. When facing conflicts, we should deal with the problems rather than attack the people. Our major problem on Tuesday is that we get excited about certain things and irritated by others. Impatience mus be checked because it leads to antagonism and violence. Keep in mind that in working together, a group achieves far more than one person alone.
Tuesday Two-Minute Task
These actions exercise our body and increase our energy levels. Take twenty deep breaths. Tense your muscles as if your were a wild animal. Tone your body with some long, gentle stretches. Walk up and down a staircase. Touch your toes twenty times. Jog briskly around the block. Take a steamy shower. Perform some physical gestures you would make if you were free to act as exactly as you please. Toast an English muffin or a bagel. Put a lot of black pepper on your eggs. Eat a breakfast burrito with salsa. Sip a cup of hot chocolate or spicy chai.
Angel of the Day
Archangel Sammael rules Tuesday. He was once thought to be the angel of death and the prince of demons. Today he is viewed as an agent of persistence and courage. Sammael aids us in dealing squarely with our challenges. He provides us with the model of the noble warrior.
THE TUESDAY TYPE
Individuals born on Tuesday are always on the move and dislike restraints of any kind. It is hard for them to sit still unless they are directed to do so. Their bold actions and strong appetites may lead to bad habits in lifestyle or behavior. Likewise the Mars temperament is impulsive, which is often interpreted as rash, impetuous, or headstrong by others. In their speech they can be quarrelsome; still there is no one better to have on your side if you need defending. When the energy of a Mars type is focused they can accomplish more in an hour than others can do in a day. They especially enjoy training themselves to use the instruments, tools, or weapons that make their efforts more effective.
