Mars Devotional/Pentacle Consecration

After some discussion with some of my magically-inclined peers, and a new interest in the 2nd Pentacle of Mars from the Key of Solomon, I decided to make one to the best of my ability and set an astrologically favorable date for consecration.

The Solomonic Pentacle of Mars is used for healing (!) and I plan to use it frequently in my prayers on Tuesdays when available to do so. However, since I haven’t worked much with the energies of Mars, I decided to make a 5 day operation out of this process, each day using a devotional prayer to Elohim Givor and Samael, with the last day culminating in a formal petition to Samael to consecrate my pentacle for its intended purpose, along with Psalm readings and prayers from the Key of Solomon. I figured that 5 days was an appropriate number of days to build up a spiritual momentum of energy that would climax during the last day. I also thought it was a good way to pay my respects to any past influence that Samael may have had on my own development, as well as building a bit of a relationship with him beforehand while I state my intentions for this operation.

I started on August 30th, 2019 and finished on September 3rd, a Tuesday, when Mars enters Scorpio. I used a new red candle, painted with the seal of Samael, and with my red Cord of Union, I made a miniature magic circle. Propped up on painted wooden blocks, incense was burned underneath the pentacle while the Psalms were read during the ritual.

As for the design of my vesion of the 2nd Pentacle of Mars, pictured below, it uses a Latin inscription of John 1:4 (translating to “In Him was life; and the life was the light of men”). In context of the chapter, this verse seems to be referring to the Logos before material manifestation. Interpret that as primordial Christ Consciousness before the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, if you so choose. Fitting also, that this design features the Pentagrammaton, in addition to the Tetragrammaton and the Divine Name Elohim.

Within the borders of the central Hexagram there is inscribed the Hebrew letter Heh, that which has a gematria of 5. Written 6 times within the Hexagram, we may be able to interpret this in a modern Qabalistic light as the forces of Mars harnessed within the balance of the Solar energy of Tiferet, balancing out the Lesser Malefic with aspects of harmony. Whether or not this was the original intention or not, to me, is irrelevant. If it works, it works. This was also a good excuse to use my gold paint pen, and the sharp contrast of the gold on the metallic red paint that I used was quite pleasing to my eye. I put in a decent amount of effort in making this, I can only hope that my efforts were appreciated.

Here is the devotional ritual used on the 4 days before Consecration:

+In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
O Lord, ELOHIM GIVOR, God of Strength, we hereby beseech Thee to grant unto us the appropriate strength and spiritual armor of defense for the healing of the body, mind, and soul, and for the search after the Spirit’s hidden light and wisdom.
Under the authority of Elohim Givor, who governeth the sphere of Gevurah and Mars, I call upon SAMAEL, for I ask you to be ever watchful over me and my loved ones who suffer.

Archangel Samael, I humbly ask for your guidance, your courage, your loyalty, and to bless our endeavor to connect with the positive energies of Mars. Rid us of impulsivity, cruelty, anger, and hate. Inspire us with proper motivation, assertiveness, vitality, the ability to calm our inner conflicts, and the endurance to overcome enemies both within and without. For these things do I humbly call upon you to accept these offerings of devotion, as an attempt to reap the benefits of your sphere of influence, and for the benefit of healing others in need.
I submit this request in the name of the sovereignty of the Most High God the Father +, the unending love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ +, and the illuminating essence of the glorious Spirit Most Holy +. Amen.”

Here is the ritual script for the final day of Consecration:


“O Eternal God, wise, strong, mighty, Being of Beings, Creator of the world, come to this place and sanctify it with your Presence and your Majesty, that the purity, the chastity, and the abundance of your Law may reside in this place. And just as the smoke of this incense rises up to you, may your Virtue and your blessing descend in this place. O you angels and spirits, be present at this consecration, through the True Living and Eternal God, who created us from nothing, and who in a moment can destroy us, and through his Wisdom, Amen.

When we enter herein with all humility, let God the Almighty One enter into this circle, by the entrance of an eternal happiness, of a divine prosperity, of a perfect joy, of an abundant charity, and of an eternal salutation. Let all the demons fly from this place, especially those who are opposed unto this work, and let the angels of peace assist and protect this circle, from which let discord and strife fly and depart. Magnify and extend upon us, O Lord, Thy most holy name, and bless our conversation and our assembly. Sanctify, O Lord our God, our humble entry herein, Thou the blessed and Holy One of the eternal ages! Amen.

I beseech Thee, O Lord God, the all powerful and the all merciful, that Thou wilt deign to bless this circle, and all this place, and all those who are therein, and that Thou wilt grant unto us, who serve Thee, and rehearse nothing but the wonders of Thy law, a good angel for our guardian; remove from us every adverse power; preserve us from evil and from trouble; grant, O Lord, that we may rest in this place in all safety, through Thee, O Lord, who livest and reignest unto the ages of the ages. Amen.

O ADONAI most powerful, EL most strong, AGLA most holy, ON most righteous, the ALPHA and the OMEGA, the Beginning and the End; Thou who hast established all things in Thy wisdom; Thou who has chosen Abraham as Thy faithful servant, and hast promised that in his seed shall all nations of the earth be blessed, which seed Thou hast multiplied as the stars of Heaven; Thou who hast appeared unto Thy servant Moses in flame in the midst of the burning bush, and hast made him walk with dry feet through the Red Sea; Thou who hast granted unto Solomon Thy servant these pentacles by Thy great Mercy, for the preservation of Soul and Body; we most humbly implore and supplicate Thy Holy Majesty, that this pentacle may be consecrated by Thy Power, and prepared in such manner that they may obtain virtue and strength against all spirits, through Thee, O Most Holy ADONAI, whose Kingdom, Empire, and Principality, remaineth and endureth without end. Amen.
O Lord, ELOHIM GIVOR, God of Strength, we hereby beseech Thee to grant unto us the appropriate strength and spiritual armor of defense for the healing of the body, mind, and soul, and for the search after the Spirit’s hidden light and wisdom.

Under the authority of Elohim Givor, who governeth the sphere of Gevurah and Mars, I call upon SAMAEL, for I ask you to be ever watchful over me and my loved ones who suffer. Archangel Samael, I humbly ask for your guidance, your courage, your loyalty, and to bless our endeavor to connect with the positive energies of Mars. Rid us of impulsivity, cruelty, anger, and hate. Inspire us with proper motivation, assertiveness, vitality, the ability to calm our inner conflicts, and the endurance to overcome enemies both within and without. For these things do I humbly call upon you to accept these offerings of devotion, as an attempt to reap the benefits of your sphere of influence.

Archangel Samael, I ask of you to consecrate this pentacle, as it is held to be an influence of healing under the forces of Mars, and is said to serve with great success against all kinds of diseases. Deign to empower this pentacle to be a powerful talisman of protection from all ailments, that I may use its influence to help others during prayers and petitions of healing.
[Psalm 77 + 23 + 150 is read]”


You will notice that I am taking some cues from the Omega Magick Instructions. I figured this would be an interesting experiment combined with some basic Solomonic features. Now that the pentacle has been consecrated, I plan to light candles upon it and use healing petitions on Tuesdays.

One thought on “Mars Devotional/Pentacle Consecration

  1. Greetings Frater,
    I have been doing similar ceremonies like this for many years. I only use the Vulgate psalms either in Latin or Hebrew, the KJV is the most corrupt of VSL’s. I also cleanse the candle with Holy water before anointing it with the appropriate oil. I also use mainly ancient Egyptian influences on my altar, I would send a pic but you don’t have that facility, I find that all Salomonic Keys are better influenced and the results manifest quicker…..Very impressed with your work!

    Fraternally yours
    Frater I
