I ended up doing tonight’s ritual quite late as I missed the earlier planetary hours because I had things that had to be done in the afternoon. As I was chanting the ‘mantra’ tonight I found myself worrying again about things (mostly finances, again) so repeated the mantra with the emphasis on Mars VICTOR once again while I imagined myself triumphant over the issues that were worrying me. I think it helped, at least to change my mood.
When I was done with the mantra I held the talisman for a while between my hands and concentrated on the wonderful feelings I will have when I have met my goals for the year and overcome the things that are worrying me. After that I went to the mirror and did some more affirmations, imagining myself triumphant, then closed things down.
