Not seeing anything jump out immediately with the Magic Square, but I confirmed the numbers that were kind of hard to read (but could have been discovered by Googling "Mars Planetary Square", as that is in fact a thing):

11 | 24 | 7 | 20 | 3
4 | 12 | 25 | 8 | 16
17 | 5 | 13 | 21 | 9
10 | 18 | 1 | 14 | 22
23 | 6 | 19 | 2 | 15

Flow (starting from the circled "9") appears to be 9 - 10 - 20 - 4 - 10 - 20 - 9 - 7 - 1 - 7 - 5 - 6 - 5 - 10.

Text:

"The planetary squares are important because [...] to make sigils which [I can use] to cast spells. This is the planetary square of Mars and it is all about being strong and firm, but not mean necessarily. Mars can be rude sometimes, though, but still it is use[ful]"

Not an answer (or even confirmation that it is a puzzle), but meta-gaming context:

The connected lines are not part of any Martian Planetary Squares. That connection looks more like this.

I'm curious about her talking about school. I can't tell if she's in high school or college, the post about the art school kind of threw me with there being no one around and supplies were left out. Being an art major made me really question that, students are always there and there are many sticky fingers. I don't know why I'm stuck on this point but it made me send her a message asking. It looks interesting though. Enough to make me finally get off my lurking ways and get an account at least.

Edit: She answered my question, sounds like she's taking accelerated courses through a local college. She's answering questions on her tumblr account right now and has said she found Leda when a book she bought had her card in it. She keeps emphasizing how Leda doesn't like Christinia using her real name online. I'm wondering how benign Leda really is and if there's a specific reason to not use real names.

just wondering if it is a super-bad idea

Christinia isn't Leda's first student, which makes me wonder what happened to the others:

On Tumblr it sounds like she's received a few anonymous asks warning her against Leda and being cautious of her. She's very defensive of Leda and has said that she already knows the risks, but Leda isn't bad. Leda seems to think the box going awry is a prank though. I sent in a few more questions to her Tumblr to see about more info. Editing to add the link to a video put up sometime today. Here it looks like she's got it unlisted right now.

Any leads on puzzles within this new iteration? Seems like just NPC interaction for now.
