Spica Talisman Silver (*Limited Edition*)
Assembled on September 5th, 2021 between 14:45-15:20 (Givatayim, Israel +3 GMT)
Powerful fixed star Talisman - for unbounded good fortune, wealth, happiness and protection.
A very powerful time to recreate the Venus Spica Talisman. The elected time features Venus conjunct the fixed star Spica, culminating on the Midheaven and receiving a sextile (harmonious relationship) from the Moon in Leo. This election is also in the planetary hour of Venus.
The Venus Spica combination is said to be a powerful amplifier of wealth, abundance and luck
, providing goods and pleasures, success in one's career and achievements, as well as artistic talents and social charisma. Spica is also considered to be a very protective star, shielding from physical and psychic harm, and increasing healing and supportive energy.
"it confers riches, and makes one overcome contentions, it takes away scarcity and mischief
– Henry Cornelius Agrippa (Three Books of Occult Philosophy)
Venus is undoubtedly the planet most suited to channel and ‘translate’ the brilliant light of the star Spica which is traditionally considered to be of a Venusian nature. Spica is also placed in the zodiac sign of Libra, where Venus is essentially dignified, further magnifying the virtues which are most akin to it. Therefore this conjunction has the potential to bring about very pronounced social success, popularity and fame, prosperity and wealth (the famous billionaire Warren Buffett has this conjunction in his natal chart), joy and happiness, and a magical attractiveness.
The powers of Spica plus the heightened Venusian elements in this combination can also heighten creativity and any artistic skill (writing, painting, sculpting, music, etc.) as well as spiritual intuition.
The talisman contains Sage and Jasmine. Sage is one of the sacred herbs associated with Spica according to the ancient texts and Jasmine is another plant that is ruled by Venus. Spica is also associated with Šala the Babylonian goddess of agriculture and fertility. The image on the Talisman is a depiction of the goddess giving wheat to humans. On the back of the Talisman appears the ancient magic seal of Spica.
The Star Spica is probably one of the most famous fixed stars known for its abundant beneficial and protective powers. This star is also called Alpha Virginis, as it is the brightest star in the constellation of Virgo the maiden. Spica is a binary star, which means it is really two stars larger and hotter than the sun, together they look like a single point of (blue) light, even when looking through an average telescope.
The name Spica means “ear” as it is in the “ear of wheat” in the Virgo constellation. The association with agriculture, wheat and harvest is very old. For the Egyptians, the Virgo constellation was associated with the goddess Isis, and Spica was the bearer of harvest. As Isis is a fertile, life-creating goddess, Spica symbolized the fruits of her life energy that she bestows on nature and man. Virgo is also associated with Ceres, the Greek goddess of the harvest.
As this constellation signifies the abundance of harvest and fruitfulness of agriculture, this star is said to provide all sorts of good things, from material good, success in career and achievements, to different artistic and mental talents.
