Iron and Steel

Author: Anja Heij

Planet: Mars

Signs: Aries and Scorpio

Day: Tuesday

I bet you know that the red color of Mars is due
to the great amount of iron oxide on that planet. Man has always
used iron and steel for tools and weapons, to serve his working
power and his defense. In iron we recognize the male and active
character of the war-god Mars, building and conquering himself
a new world. The sign Aries will tell the whole world his actions
and intentions, where Scorpio first focuses laser-like on a goal
and then probably hits it in one strike.
In the human body iron is found in the blood (providing energy
and clear thinking) and the liver (associated with positivity
and will-power). In medical astrology Mars is connected with the
red blood-cells, adrenaline, the muscles, the male reproductive
organs, fever and inflammation ('fire'-complaints).

Magickal use of iron and steel:

  • use these metals in rituals, spells and amulets to promote
    energy, strength, determination, will-power, assertivity and
    aggression, fertility-rites, beginnings and undertakings, speed,
    power and courage.

  • For more energy: eat food that contains iron, like meat,
    beet, dark green vegetables, whole grains, dried fruits, nuts,
    apple-syrup, sea-weed.

  • Use herbs with much iron like the Urtica, Equisetum, kelp
    and spirulina.

  • Consider wearing iron ornaments; just like the character
    of Aries and Scorpio they will be hardrock-, punk- or occult-styled
    ornaments (if you choose a pentagram, buy one with the point
    upwards; better leave the inverted pentagrams)

Renowned homeopathic iron remedies are <
