Were you made for? pendant and
two Renewed Astrological Designs
This month I have celebrated my 39 birthday and I want to thank all of
you for the countless blessings you sent me and to apologize that I
could not answer it all. One of the things I usually do each year on my
birthday is to observe this experience called life, and to check myself
whether I have performed meaningful actions during the
passing year. Throughout my years on this planet, I have been shocked
to find out again and again that so many people live a life of
dissatisfaction and lack of meaning without the ability to set free
their creativity and imagination.

were you made for?" Pendant
This is the reason I have decided to create the next pendant:
Inside the octahedron there is a question mark and on it engraved the
What were you made for?
I first encountered the sentence at Haim
- a great luthier who crafts brilliant guitars who lives in London. In
a documentary movie, he
said that each day he stops for 5 minutes and focuses on those five
words - What were you made for? This
helps him find happiness and meaning in his life.
The happiest among us are the ones who managed to give their life
meaning. Some people see this approach as a deterministic; one that
says each one of us was made for a purpose. I prefer the perception
that people are the ones who cast meaning on their life through self
realization, creativity and courage. The Octahedron
structure gives a
definition of time and space and symbolizes consciousness. The
Octahedron also represents the beginning of creation or the universe.
The question mark inside the octahedron creates a beautiful delicate
chime sound that acts from time to time as a "bell of awareness".
The decorations on the pendant are taken
from one of the Anglo Saxon
jewels found at 2009 in Staffordshire Britain. These jewels were made
by goldsmiths who most likely found the meaning of life in their art...
1300 years later I feel honored to re-live them again.
hope that those of you who will buy and wear the pendant will stop
every once in a while and ask themselves if they are on the right path.
Family Pendant (Not for
Though I don't have the time for custom work Iv'e used this design for
the following pendant which was made for a known radio broadcaster in
Israel. He was looking for something to represent the most important
thing in his life - his family. Each facet of the pyramid contains one
letter of the Hebrew word for family (MISHPAHA). Each facet is a
pendant by itself and the five can become one pyramid pendant which is
a very stable structure.
Jupiter in Taurus
Based on the design of the Divine love Talisman (The Venus in Pisces
talisman) made for another special astrological event with Venus.
Jupiter and Venus meet once every 9 to 15 month, but only rarely (in
the 12 year cycle of Jupiter) in signs which they are said to be
dignified in. The first talisman we made was for the triple conjunction
of Jupiter, Venus and moon in Pisces - a sign which has strong affinity
with Jupiter (ruler) Venus (exaltation). the second talisman we made
was two months ago when Venus enters Pisces again, projecting
harmonious aspects to Jupiter in Taurus, while they are said to be in
'mutual reception'-which means in each other's sign (Venus in Jupiter
sign-Pisces, Jupiter in Venus sign-Taurus).
This month, we have this beautiful celestial event that can be seen in
the night sky, Venus as a strong evening star (setting after the Sun,
high visibility after sunset) is approaching Jupiter in Taurus, again a
powerful alignment (conjunction) of the two benefices, in the sign
ruled by Venus. Planets in their sign are strongly 'dignified', they
emanate their essential nature in its purest form.
We had two dates for making the Talisman; one is the 14.3.2012 when they are in exact
bodily conjunction(also forming a grand trine in the earth triplicity
with Mars and Pluto- which give it strength and depth);and on the 26.3.2012 when the Moon is joining
them and is said to be 'bonafide' in ancient literature, not only is
the moon exalted in Taurus, but it is "sandwiched" by the two strongly
placed benefices, which gives it protection and good fortune.
As Pisces emphasised higher emotions and spiritual love and intuition,
Taurus gives a strong earthly bond, grounding the spirit and
emphasizing the senses. In general the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter
brings an expansion (Jupiter) of love
and beauty (the aesthetic and sensual impulse). The earth sign of
Taurus brings an expansion of resources, while securing and stabilizing
a steady and long term physical, sensual, relational gratification.
Jupiter also gives his powers of higher guidance, ethical and spiritual
awareness, and optimism to the mix.
A great symbol for a lasting union of love; physically complementing
and nurturing, sensually gratifying, as well as grounded and wealthy.
Uranus Talisman –
We have made two Uranus Talismans, one for teh time Uranus first enters
Aries, the other for the second time it enters Aries after retrograding
and then emerging from Pisces. Uranus will stay in Aries for
approximately 7 years, and will return to the beginning of Aries (the
spring equinox degree) in another 84 years (Uranus cycle). This
Talisman is being fashioned when Uranus is strongly triggered by
different astrological configurations while in the sign of Aries, and
by planets that are now reinforcing its unique quality. On March 24,
2012, we made a Talisman for when the Sun, after entering Aries (on
March 20th), made a bodily alignment (conjunction) with Uranus in the
same degree. This alignment activated its potential with solar force,
which is also very strong in Aries, a place of exaltation of the Sun.
The first sign, and the sign of the spring where the day gets longer,
and the power of light wins the forces of dark.
Sun Uranus, is a strong, freedom oriented, rebellious spirit. It is the
“I” that acknowledges uniqueness and dares to shine
its true colors! Not yielding to external power grabbers, but
reclaiming power, and holding its center. It is a symbol of a highly
individualized life force an uncompromising expression of 'The will to
be' and lives the most authentic truth of the self, in spite of outer
limitations and societal pressures to conform.
Uranus represents the breaking of limitations that inhibits growth and
change. It represents the spirit’s need for freedom,
excitement and novelty. Uranus is the Prometheus in every one of us,
the passion for the “fire of the gods” and the need
to share it. It
is the spark of our uniqueness and ingenuity. It is the power of
change, of the radically new and enlightened, the power of revolution
from conformity and narrow perspectives that pushes us to evolve!
