Tuesday is ruled by Mars, the planet of physical energy and boldness, which governs things such as passion, sexuality, will power, courage, and force. It's a perfect day for awakening your passion to excel, while developing the courage required for this. It's also a good time to do rituals and activities to let go of anything in your life that just doesn't serve you anymore.
This is also the day of expressing sexual energy, which is very much connected with your individuality and creativity. It's about breaking through mental blocks and various obstacles that might keep you from being the amazing and creative individual that you are. If something is holding you back, you can tap into the energy of Tuesday to boost your confidence, enhance your courage, and strengthen your resolve so that you can face your fears and overcome the unjust. Ultimately this is a good day to get in touch with your warrior spirit.
Magical Correspondences for Tuesday
Deities: Ezili Danto, Kali, Mars, Lilith (Lilith being one of my favorites...even though she's not considered a traditional deity for this day I absolutely associate her with Tuesday, as she is considered a patroness of witches and a goddess of sexuality, equality, wisdom, willpower, independence and power).
Herbal Tea: Ginseng with ginger root added: Ginseng is an excellent tonic. It encourages vitality ans stimulates your psyche and physical body to feel capable and strong.

Tarot cards: Strength, the ultimate card of courage and willpower, is a personal favorite. You are sure to see her on my altar on Tuesdays. One of my Tarot decks has an image of Lilith for the Strength card, which works just fine. I also like the Strength card from the Thoth deck, which Crowley named Lust. Other cards that work well for Tuesday are The Emperor, associated with Aries, which is ruled by Mars. As stoic as he looks in some tarot decks, he's a fiery one to be sure. The Tower, associated with the planet Mars is good for breaking through and tearing down the things that wall us in as individuals. There are some cards from the Minor Arcana that I like to use for magical purposes, such as the Five of Wands, which I refer to as the "are you talking to me card?!" card, because it illustrates the sort of healthy competition that challenges us to finding our voice. I like the Seven of Wands as well because it's about standing your ground no matter who or what you're up against.
