A good day to promote any healthy change in your lifestyle is today, for it celebrates the Roman goddess Victoria, who was also known as "Nike" in Greek mythology. First, decide on a sport or physical challenge you wish to pursue in the coming months. Then gather a few small things to represent it. Are you a swimmer? Then bring to your altar a nose plug, or shells from the sea. Perhaps you wish to be a runner. Then place on your altar laces and feathers to inspire swiftness. Once you have gathered your "charms," call upon the directions. Then say:
Goddess Victoria, hear me pray,
Let me start a healthier way.
In times to come, a future fair,
A fitter me in every way.
Dear Nike, dear Nike.
Bless these charms, I pray,
Fleet of foot, healthy and free,
Through the goddess,
Mote it be.
