Tuesday is ruled by Mars, the Roman god of war, passion, anger, and aggression. His color is fiery red. It’s no surprise that the expression for rage is “seeing red.”

To be in harmony with Tuesday, wear something red. For jewelry, wear a ruby, garnet, or carnelian.

To enhance the fiery energy of Mars in a positive way, eat something red: an apple, strawberries, tomatoes, any kind of tomato sauce.

I like to make “Mexican rice” on Tuesday. In a tablespoon of olive oil, sautee onion, green onions, fresh or canned tomato, red and green bell peppers. Season with chili powder, garlic, and lemon pepper. Add corn kernels and red kidney beans or black beans. Mix in about three cups of cooked organic brown rice and three veggie sausage patties, broken into pieces. (I like Morning Star.) Season to taste with chili pepper sauce to taste (Trader Joe’s is very good). Optional: top with grated low-fat cheese.

So there you have it, my friend.

Tap into the fiery passion of Mars to get you through the rest of the week, but beware of the three A’s: anger, aggression, and accidents.
