“.. O Moon, you who are the blessed lady, fortunate, cold and moist, equitable and lovely. You are the chief and the key of all the other planets, swift in your motion, having light that shines, lady of happiness and joy, of good words, good reputation, and fortunate realms… Free and precious one, you are closer to us than the other planets, you are larger than all and most luminous; you are apt to good and evil, you join the planes together, you carry their light, and by your goodness you rectify all things whatsoever…You are the beginning of all things and you end thereof”. Picatrix
The Moon Talisman endows those who wear it with health, wealth and physical protection.
The Moon is regarded as Ruler of the rhythms and cycles of our biological systems. It regulates, modulates, nourishes and protects our Life Force and seeds it with our most vital necessities. Thus, the Moon Talisman enables all aspects of fertility and growth, whether this involves feminine fertility for the embodiment of new life or providing a fertile ground for the growth of material resources, as well as being 'seeded' with Inspiration for all possible creative endeavors.
According to Ancient Tradition, the Moon Talisman is considered a powerful Protector against enemies and malefic influences, with an emphasis on protection during travels, especially at sea.
The Moon influences our subconscious, our emotions and our instincts. Wearing the Moon Talisman increases our ability to connect with our emotionally intuitive 'Inner Voice', thus enabling us to bring to the surface the subconscious aspects of ourselves and to actively employ them in our everyday lives. The Moon Talisman helps us feel more secure in our emotional natures and conveys a unique blend of euphoria and inner peace.
At the time of forging this Talisman, the Moon is in Taurus (its sign of Exaltation), making it also an Esteemed Guest of Venus (Ruler of Taurus), while Venus herself is Exalted in Pisces. This deliberately chosen blend of energies strengthens the sensory and romantic appreciation of Beauty and Esthetics, conferring to those who wear this Talisman the ability to fully enjoy the pleasures of the world, such as good food, music and art in general. It promotes a healthy appetite and opens up the senses to numerous new and exciting sensations.
On one hand, the Moon Talisman facilitates a strong connection with the earth and the body, conferring a sense of calmness, comfort and stability (Taurus). On the other hand, the Moon Talisman serves as a mystical bridge to the spiritual and the abstract, to higher and boundless Love, to artistic inspiration and to a feeling of sensual and emotional exaltation (Venus). This exquisitely harmonious dialog between those two sides, Heaven and Earth, makes allowance for 'downloading' abstract concepts and subsequently manifesting them in practically applicable ways.
The Moon Talisman increases fertility, calms emotional turmoil, dissolves creative blockages and helps with various physical aspects involving digestion, glands and hormone secretions, anemia, excessive dryness or insufficient bodily fluids, optimizing our 'inner humidity' as well as enhancing mother's milk production when needed most.
How to use
Tradition recommends wearing the Talisman for the first time on a Monday (the day of the Moon), while you are by yourself, imagining what it is that you desire most from it. Be specific and detailed when formulating your wishes, and at the moment of actually wearing the Talisman, imagine yourself in the situation you wish to be in.
It is recommended that you keep the Talisman to yourself and not show it to anyone for the first 24 hours. After the connection has been forged, you can freely wear it anywhere you go.
