Tuesday belongs to the God Mars and the element of Fire.
Mars is the God of War—
so any God of War in any other culture would probably fall under this Tuesday as well.
Tuesdays are for enemies, loyalty, protection from violence, confidence, courage, marriage.
The Scots celebrated Nicnevin
The French celebrated the Festival of Reason
Nicnevin is the Goddess of the Hunt. She is also known as Nigh Nemhain, the daughter of frenzy. On this night, it is said that she rides with those who follow her through the countryside. At times, she may allow herself to be visible to those who follow her.
In 1793, the French Convention enthroned the Goddess of Reason in Notre Dame de Paris’ Cathedral. A woman named Mademoiselle Candeille, an Opera Singer of her day, represented the Goddess. She was dressed in a white frock, a white mantle, and a red Phrygian cap. She wore a crown of oak leaves. Young women who were chosen to be her attendee also wore crowns of oak leaves.
