Initiative Spell

By Maria Kay Simms


Today is ruled by Mars.  Therefore, focus on taking the initiative and asserting yourself in all and any matters.  Play recorded music with a strong drumming rhythm.  Carve a red candle with appropriate symbols of your goal, such as Mars, Aries, fire, and the runes Ken and Tir.  When you are finished carving, call to your favorite warrior goddess or god within, light the candle, place it in the center of the room, turn up your drumming music, and dance around the fire.  Feel the beat throughout your body, and as you do, meditate on your intent and see yourself achieving it!  When your energy peaks, throw your hands high into the air and shout:


“Success!  Success!  Success!”
