We are very happy to be able to offer the most acclaimed of our fixed stars Talismans. This time we made it under an auspices conjunction with the Moon, which is also in its own Sign (cancer).
Additionally the Moon was in a sextile aspect (harmonious relationship) with Mercury (which is also the ruler of its bound and decan).
The Canister Contains Juniper and Wormwood according to the ancient Egyptian traditions.
Creating Sirius Rising Talisman
As Sirius is considered by some to be the central Sun of our Sun, this alignment is very potent and powerful as it revives and replenishes the solar fires of life and give power, success, Brilliance and magnanimity to the wearer.
SIRIUS was very important to the Egyptians, as it was Helically rising in the summer coinciding with the flooding of the Nile, and also marked the beginning point of the ancient Egyptian yearly calendar (and its Decanic division..see below). SIRIUS was considered a life giver, and was affiliated with the goddess Isis.
SIRIUS is a star of success and power, excellence, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion and passion for achieving one's goals. It marks immense creative talents in any field, and makes the native Brilliant and inspired.
The images on the Talisman are the Image of Sopdet (also Sepdet or Sothis). Sopdet is the goddess that represents Sirius. Sopdet is displayed, riding her boat in the night sky, with a star on top of her headdress while holding a lotus flower. The Lotus probably represents one year's cycle, thus linking her to the yearly rising of Sirius and the new year.
The back of the Talisman bears the Egyptian Hieroglyph of Sirius and the ancient magical seal of Sirius. The canister contains Juniper and Wormwood according to an ancient formula for the making a Sirius Talisman. The formula can be found in the hermetic writings of Hermes and Cornelius Agrippa.
This is a unique Talisman for Sirius' “True Phase" , let me explain…
In the ancient tradition, probably originating in Egypt, but also practiced and elaborated in the hellenistic period, there was an intricate doctrine which defined and explained the phases of the fixed stars and constellations in relation to the Sun, their heliacal rising and setting, and their co- rising or rising parallel to when the Sun rises or culminates in the diurnal cycle.
In a book titled “the phases of the fixed stars” the second century astronomer and astrologer claudius ptolemy carefully explains the different phases. The word phase comes from phasis/ phainó which means an appearance/becoming visible, therefore phases are different ways in which a planet becomes visible, the most important of which is the morning phase which is the heliacal rising of the Planet/Star when it first becomes visible rising before dawn.
So what is a TRUE PHASE - Ptolemy tells us that when a star is co-rising (which is essentially a conjunction although the fixed stars can be pretty far from the ecliptic) with the Sun this is its True phase, this is very odd considering that this is a time when a star is most invisible as it is totally concealed in the rays of the Sun…
So what is that a Phase and how come this is a True phase!? well the answer is that it is because a star generally makes a phase or an appearance in the external world which is visible to the eye (which is also powerful), but when it is“In” the Sun, so to speak, It is visible to the Mind’s eye (the Sun was considered the eye of the cosmic Mind) and therefore shows its True form (In the greek sense of the word which is essence).
This kind of Sun conjunction to a fixed star is very powerful, as is proven by experience, it gives a higher insight and access to the powerful virtues of the star. It is in correlation with the Term Cazimi (in the heart of Sun) which is when a Planet is exactly conjunct the Sun.
Fixed Stars Talismans
Talisman for fixed stars were considered very powerful and unique, as they represent emanations of forces outside and above our solar system, reflecting in a sense, superhuman virtues and powers. Most of the shining fixed stars are gigantic Suns extremely bigger than our own.
The name “fixed stars” marks the difference between the apparent movements of the planets (meaning wanderers) and the stars and constellations which seems fixed and unmoving from earth point of view. For the ancients the fixed position of those Stars relative to each other, to the moving planets and the earth’s rotation, was considered a mark of their divinity, as they are unchanging and therefore eternal.
