In planetary correspondences, Tuesday is a Mars day. Good day to cut the lawn, nails or hair for slower growth.

Think of Tuesday for affirmations to reduce illness or debt, cut ties that bind, and to move forward from the effect of enemies and aggressors. 

Mars rules Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. In traditional astrology (practiced before the discovery of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto), it also rules/co-rules Scorpio, the eighth sign of the zodiac.

Influences and signifiers of Mars may be described by these terms: energy, heat, passion, impulse, rage, burning desire, aggression, fights, battles, assertiveness, boldness, headstrong, drive, new enterprises, hunting, territoriality, opposition, resentment, anger, threats, weapons, guns, speed, accidents, wounds, cuts, burns, surgery, the use of force.

Planetary correspondences for herbs, from earlier practitioners such as Culpeper, relate plants that are sharp, acrid, biting, sour, irritant with Mars. They included Garlic, Hops, Mustard, Nettle, Onion, Pepper, Radish, Tarragon, Tobacco.
