|Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, is a traditional celebration of excess before entering the austerity of Lent. The moon's aspects make today perfect for magically riding this wave of indulgence with a high-spirited prosperity ritual that involves going all out with the luxuries. For example, you might plan a decadent meal, get all the ingredients for your favorite mixed drink, take a bubble bath, put on the satin pajamas, and burn the expensive incense.
Once you've planned and assembled the items you'll need, take a moment before partaking of the splurges to light a deep red candle, take some deep breaths, center your mind, and say:
"With the fiery lights of Mars, the waxing fullness of the moon, and the growing power of the Sun, I now align. I am rich. I have plenty. My cup overflows. My wallet swells. Whatever I need, I have. Luxury is my natural state."
