Today is Tuesday, which corresponds with the planetary influences of Mars (Oil of Iron). Here is some more in-depth information on the qualities of this oil and how you can use it on a day like today to benefit in your physical and spiritual development.
The Oil of Iron is associated with the energies of Mars and the chakra center situated within the Solar Plexus. This center is known to govern the digestion and conversion of food into energy for the body. Physically the Oil of Iron works on all systems associated with digestion (Stomach, Intestines, Liver, Gallbladder, Pancreas, etc.). When the Oil of Iron is incorporated into the body, these systems are balanced to help you effectively break down ingested foods and distribute nutrients more adequately. Problems of over or under acidity in the digestive system as well as diabetic issues are also balanced with the usage of this oil.
Spiritually, the Oil of Iron builds upon the two energy centers below it. The self-esteem associated with the energies of Saturn (Oil of Lead), and the raw emotions associated with the energies of Jupiter (Oil of Tin), are elevated and incorporated into the chakra center of the solar plexus. These energies may then be harnessed by the Will to be transmuted towards higher forms of expression and consciousness. When properly balanced this center allows you to thoroughly “digest” your thoughts, feelings, and emotions that are stimulated by the interactions in your interior and exterior environments. With thorough digestion of both physical and emotional intake, the body and consciousness can use these vital energies accordingly so that the organism may flourish.
With energy effectively distributed throughout the body, personal power increases, providing you a better grasp to utilize your Will. This strengthening of Will is the vital aspect of the Oil of Iron. With proper digestion of the thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and the conversion of these energies into power or will, the stage is set for the higher energies of the heart (Oil of Copper) to use these things as tools to reconnect you with infinite and divine consciousness.
