Then I lit lavender incense (I chose this based on the tradition of giving flowers to warriors headed to battle)
I also lit a red candle (to honor Ares) and a blue candle which I placed beside my bag on my pentacle. Then I said the Ares warrior chant found on spells 8 modified slightly to highlight the personal aspect of my spell allowing my blue candle to burn completely out.
I then thanked Ares for his guidance and protection and released him and closed my circle.
Hope this helps someone who needs it!
