Magical Image of the Third Face of Aries in Picatrix

In the third face of Aries arises the figure of a white man, pale, with reddish hair, and clothed with a red garment, who carrying on the one hand a golden Bracelet, and holding forth a wooden staff, is restless, and like one in wrath, because he cannot perform that good he would. This image bestows wit, meekness, joy and beauty.

Picatrix commentary

Picatrix suggests that completion of a project is not enough – there is always more to do.
