Alchemical Wedding Talisman (*Limited Edition*)

Assembled on the 31st of July 2016 between 02:11-02:50 while Mercury is in the first degree of Virgo and in sextile aspect to the moon which is in the first degree of cancer, the Sun is in Leo and gemini rising.

The Talisman is a combination of the metals ruled by the lights: gold- Sun, silver- Moon, and their ancient astrological glyphs, and are made ('born') under specific astrological times to draw out, intensify, reinforce and bring to life those symbols. This talisman is made in an astrological time that enhances the “cooperation” of the Sun and Moon (trine configuration while waxing). The talisman offers the opportunity to balance the opposites of our nature and 'alchemize' them together. This causes the emergence of our most pure, essential self, and acts to transform the raw and chaotic material- attached self (prima materia) into gold (spirit) by way of purification and unification of our basic elements.

The talisman of the 'alchemical wedding' is a related to the alchemical trinity of the Sun, the Moon and the hermaphrodite Mercury (which is considered their mediator). Mercury which is symbolized by the 'staff of Mercury/Hermes, or Caduceus) with his glyph embedded in the center serves as the connective tissue and reconciling energy of the Sun and Moon. Being the most androgynous planet Mercury has a pronounced solar and lunar side, which is symbolized by the two snakes.
