Astro Weather for Week of 16-21st of August

Mercury Talisman; Agrippa

Mercury Talisman; Agrippa

We finally have some good planet positions for the casting of astrological magic and astrological talismans.  While we do still have those planets that are in term (which is bringing on the heavier more aggressive natures as is clear in what is going on around the globe today, we have a small window to do some magic workings with the celestial, mercury and mars to shift some of those energies around for the better.

Sun is in his own Sign and in Trip this is a good placement for talisman of the sun as long as the moon is not opposing and there are not any afflictions with other planets that are conjunct.

Mercury is in EXALTATION, he is in his sign and in triplicity and this is an excellent time to create or re-consecrate your mercurial talismans to bring those energies and that of the nature of Mercury for success in business into your life.

Mars is in his own sign and in trip another good placement for a talisman.

Within the fixed stars we have Regulas w/Mercury and this brings honourable things, popularity, generosity but those who are the givers will take it for granted, by those who you give it too and fame and gain through high position.

Alphecca is with Mars and this brings an Active Mind and it is a better time for writing then in speaking what you wish to say, so wait a week to say what must be said to ensure you do not come across misunderstood.

Sirius with Mars this is a courageous and generous and a great time to begin work in connection with the metals.

 

This is a powerful time take advantage of the placements and what you have been seeking in your life it is time to move the plans forward and manifest it into your life.

 

Many Blessings in the Light and Dark

Mercury Talisman; 2013 Sept 4

We are fortunate to have one of our favourite astrological talismans coming up in September, the Mercury Talisman.  Mercury is in exaltation now in his own sign, we always look for Mercury to manifest his energy into our lives, this particular talisman is for that of Good Will, Wit and Increased Memory something we can all use. This was calculated for San Juan, PR region, however, you can recalculate to your region and time-zone just by setting your information to your areas Sunrise time.

Talisman for Good Will, Wit and Increased Memory - 2013 4 Sept

Talisman for Good Will, Wit and Increased Memory – 2013 4 Sept

This talisman is calculated for Wednesday the 4th day of September 2013 at 07:05 or 7:05 am, Mercury hour on Mercury day he has a +11 in dignity he is in ruler, exalt and face.  Mercury is conjunct the Sun and the Moon is not afflicted.  Note:  This talisman has a small window for consecration you have from 7:05 am to finish it by 7:15 am.

The image is that of a man sitting upon a chair or riding a peacock having eagles feet and on his head a crest and in his left hand holding a cock or fire. Herb:  Marjoram, Parsley and Dill, there are many others but these are the base ones to use you may also use Basil. If you can get your hands on sheet metal you can use tin or silver, silver being if you have virgin silver.  You may also use the stone of Mercury Agate to engrave your images onto the night prior to consecration.  However, you may also use virgin bees-wax or parchment paper as well.

Draw the above image on the front of the talisman an the image of the Seal of Mercury his sigil and his intelligence on the back of the sigil.  If using parchment paper carry this talisman on you in school, when writing or studying, or when you are just wanting all together good energy around you, it is good will.  If on metal or stone wear it around your next on a string if you can otherwise just put it in a lavender mojo bag and place it in your purse or pocket on the left side (whenever you are out), remember it is in your pants so you do not wash it.

You will draw the following symbols on the back your talisman the Magic Square of Mercury and the sigil of Mercury underneath the Magic Square then you will draw his intelligence on the back side with along with the Seal of Mercury (I am attaching the image of the one Agrippa has in his book Three Books of Occult Philosophy for your benefit).  I am also including the magic square so you can see how it is to look.  The Mercury Magic Square adds up to 2080 the Hebrew letters that are used on talismans (just draw them with a true heart and their magic will manifest).

Remember to note you have two images to choose from when drawing or engraving, the first one is the best one to use as it is easier for most to understand

At the appropriate hour light your candle (Yellow for Mercury) and your incense for suffumigation of your talisman ready, you will invoke Mercury using his Orphic Hymn and while chanting his hymn you will suffumigate your talisman holding it over the smoke of the incense.  Once you have finished leave the candle burning until it has burned completely out on its own.  You will chant this hymn eight times as this is the number of Mercury.

The Orphic Hymn to Mercury

The Fumigation from Frankincense

Hermes, draw near, and to my pray’r incline, Angel of Jove, and Maia’s son divine; Prefect of contest, ruler of mankind, With heart almighty, and a prudent mind. Celestial messenger of various skill, Whose pow’rful arts could watchful Argus kill. With winged feet ’tis thine thro’ air to course,

O friend of man, and prophet of discourse; Great life-supporter, to rejoice is thine In arts gymnastic, and in fraud divine. With pow’r endu’d all language to explain, Of care the loos’ner, and the source of gain. Whose hand contains of blameless peace the rod, Corucian, blessed, profitable God. Of various speech, whose aid in works we find,

And in necessities to mortals kind. Dire weapon of the tongue, which men revere, Be present, Hermes, and thy suppliant hear; Assist my works, conclude my life with peace, Give graceful speech, and memory’s increase.

Sleeping Talismans

dream_a_zSleeping Talisman
Picatrix Goal of the Wise; Ghayat Al-Hakim

According to the Picatrix there are four talismans in which can be made to aid in sleep to deep sleep.

1. A sleeping talisman, the way the talisman is made is by taking an equal an amount of half dirham of opium, a strip of mandrake and black anesthetic seed, one sixth dirham of pleasant smelling nuts, small wood branches and pure sandalwood. Grind and kneed with green coriander juice. Then you get putrefy is so it mixes and unites together and the spirits harmonize in it for the wanted action. Then you feed one carat of the mixture and that is enough to put anyone into a deep sleep.
2. Another sleeping talisman with that has a more powerful effect; the way this is done is by taking two small amounts of each of hard bent nuts, red anesthetic seeds, mandrake or its bark, black poppy seeds, three small amounts of saffron and one small amount of basswood. Add all and putrefy it for three days. Then use one carat of the mixture in drinks to get the effect of sleeping.
3. Another talisman for sleeping like the first two, this one is made with equal amounts of opium, mandrake bark, lettuce seed, hard bent nut seeds, rose of Jericho juice, black hellebore and seed of black poppy. Grind the ingredients very fine and mix with two times of the amounts with aged wine and put in a container to putrefy for a couple of days. Then use one carat of the mixture in drink.
4. Another talisman for the extreme deep sleeping, the way this is done is by taking an equal amount of anethetic seed juice, vaccine juice, black poppy seed juice and wine or any alcoholic juice. Add to this one tenth the total weight of the first ingredients worth opium. Melt the opium, then add fermented fig juice that was distilled at least four times and putrefy the mixture and use about one carat of this because it is a very powerful mixture and the spirits power in it is very effective.

Note of Caution: As many of these recipes have ingredients are illegal today and can cause severe hallucinations it is best to use these only with another and one who has knowledge of blending the herbs correctly for the uses they are intended for. Many of these recipes from the ancient times were also used when Magicians wanted to travel into the Astral Realms to gain insight, communicate with the spirits, and do astral healing.

Abracadabra

Abracadabra

A magical spell consisting of a single word, which was popular in medieval times to get rid of illness, misfortune or Demons [There were both good and bad demons and demons capable of both kinds of behaviour. The study of demons is called demonology. The term means “replete with wisdom”; good demons were once called eudemons and evil demons were called cacodemons]. The word is inscribed on an amulet or written out on paper in a magical inverted triangle, in which one letter of the word is dropped in each succeeding line, until nothing is left. The evil is supposed to fade away just as the word does. The diminishing word technique is used in many other spells [a spell is spoken or written formula that, in an act of Magic, is intended to cause or influence a particular course of events] for the same purposes.

In medieval times, abracadabra was believed to ward off the plague aka Black Death. The triangle was written on a piece of paper, which was tied around the neck with flax and worn for nine days, then tossed backwards over the shoulder into a stream of water running towards the east.

The words origin is unknown. It is said by some to have been invented around A.D. 208 by Quintus Serenus Sammonicus, physician to the Roman Emperor Severus, as a cure for the fever. Some hold that Sammonicus merely borrowed a formula that was much older.

According to others, the word comes from the old Aramatic phrase, abhadda kedhabhra, “disappear like this word”, or the Hebrew phrase abreq ad habra “hurl your thunderbolt even unto death”. It is also said to be derived from the name Abraxas, the Gnostic god who appears on charms against the evil eye dating from the second century. Another possibility is that is the name of some long forgotten demon. Increase Mather 1639-1723 [Illustrious Puritan minister and intellectual who viewed witchcraft and supernatural happenings as evidence of God’s growing displeasure with New England] dismissed it as a ‘hobgoblin word” that had no power at all. Aleister Crowley, on the other hand, said it is a magical word of great power and that its true form is abracadabra.

Some of the oldest charms are magical words or phrases written on parchment and worn around the neck. The term Abracadabra, which dates back at least to 2nd century Rome, and probably is older than that, is suppose to cure fever.
