The Lunar Phases Talisman (*Limited Edition*)
Rare and Genuine Moon Talisman
Assembled on April 7th 2019 between 13:54-14:27 GMT+3
Created when the Exalted Moon was culminating on the Midheaven. The Moon is not only essentially dignified by exaltation but by also being in its own Decan/Face and at its vital waxing crescent phase, plus it is also ruled by an Exalted planet (Venus in Pisces).
Although this specific Talisman is designed and timed to draw and capture the Exalted Lunar essential powers, this piece was also part of a wider, rare and auspicious celestial event which featured 5 planets powerfully positioned in the Zodiac at the same time. 3 Planetary Exaltations: Sun in Aries, Moon in Taurus, Venus in Pisces and 2 Planets in their signs of rulership: Saturn in Capricorn, Jupiter in Sagittarius. This is a truly potent convergence, giving access to an array of highly refined essential planetary powers.
Powerful Talisman for love, sensuality and pleasure, beauty and artistic ability. And with its general beneficent power, it is also a bringer of abundance and general good luck. Another unique creation designed in collaboration with our astrologer Michael Ofek.
A very unique piece of jewelry, a talisman that is also a Lunar calendar!! This talisman helps you track the movements of the Moon in the signs of the zodiac and its respective phases. It is made of three parts: the outer zodiac circle, a middle circle with the lunar phases, and an inner wheel of the average month (30 days). Combining the three wheels to the placement of the new Moon (by zodiac sign, and day number) you have a pretty accurate estimate of where the Moon will be all month long, by sign and by phase. Staying in touch with the lunar cycles has never been so easy!
It is also an authentic Moon Talisman, and like all my Talismans it is created and consecrated at auspicious times when the Moon is at its most beneficial, and protective aspects. Moon talismans are considered to have a very general range of helpful and supportive influences. The moon is mostly known to represent emotional tides and biological rhythms, but it’s much much more than that. The Moon is the connective tissue of our nature and it acts as a basic matrix for all other influences at all levels: physical, emotional and mental. It is the container, and maintainer of life (the light of the Sun) for the Earth, like a mother protecting and nurturing her child.
The placement of the Moon is of cardinal importance in any astrological “Election” (Finding a good time for a beginning of any event or project), magical or otherwise. In Talisman making the Moon must be well placed, as it is responsible for the general flow of energy and events, and acts as a mediator between the planets, and the sublunar sphere of the Earth. The doctrine of the Moon in magical practice is extensive and has whole volumes dealing with it in Talisman making.
A Talisman of the Moon (like its metal-silver) is considered to be helpful as a general protection in all circumstances. Moon talismans are also made for increasing wealth and any kind of beneficial gain, in work, career and family life. It is also said to induce empathic communication and perception.
How to use the Lunar Talisman?
Using the Talisman to follow the phases of the moon and its movement through the zodiac signs is really simple. First, check the lunar calendar for the closest new moon for the current date and click on it for more details. Then Look at which zodiac sign it occurs and the degree of the sign, between 0-30.
Then all you need to do is move the dial of the moon phases wheel to the zodiac sign of the new moon and to the approximate degree of that sign. Then move the inner dial of the day wheel, which represents the average number of days of the month, placing the date number of the day of the new moon on that same approximate degree.
- In the example above, the dial of the moon phases wheel will be set to the 26 degrees of Sagittarius, which is approximately the last small square of the sign in a counter-clockwise direction. The number 18 on the day wheel will be set to the same approximate degree as the new moon.
After adjusting the talisman for the new moon, it is now set for the whole month and you can see in a glance the approximate days of the month that the different phases will appear in the night’s sky and their respective sign placement. When you want to recall where the moon is at any time, just look at the Talisman and you will know immediately!
Keep in mind that the placements on the Talisman are approximations, and not accurate to the minute. This is supposed to be a rough guide and not a substitute for astrological software. This is because the different phases of the moon are in relation to the sun, and the sun moves approximately 1 degree per day. Every day the moon travels through the zodiac the sun moves one degree. Therefore, if you want to be more accurate in calculating the placement of the moon you need to add one degree per day to the moon’s placement. For instance, if the new moon (where the sun and moon are in the same degree) is at 21 degrees in Aries, then when the moon is in its waxing gibbous phase about 11 days after the new moon, the sun has moved 11 degrees in the zodiac and is now in the sign Taurus; which means that the full moon will not be in Libra (the sign opposite to Aries) but in Scorpio.
If you keep that in mind and compensate for the movements of the sun while observing the Talisman, you can attain a fair approximation of the sun and moon positions, at all times. There are, of course, other considerations that you can utilize if you know a little Astrology/Astronomy, which has to do with the speed of the moon (that it's not steady and changes a bit from its waxing and waning phases), and other minute changes in the movements of the sun which is a little more than a round degree per day. However, this is for the professional to consider, and should not bother you.
All the explanation above indicates that the earlier the degree of a sign that the new moon takes place in, the more accurate the Talisman will be; mainly in accordance with sign placement. The more the new moon will occur in late degrees, the less accurate the Talisman becomes (if not adjusted), as the month advances.
A rule of thumb that is easy to remember is to take into account that a lunation is approximately 30 days (29.53 days). So you need to look at the degree where the new moon is and see when the sun moves a sign during these 30 days (every sign is 30°). In our example above, if the new moon happens in 21 of Aries, then it has 9° to travel in Aries before it moves to 0° Taurus.
This way, you can know in advance which phases will be on certain days and in what signs. In this example, the first quarter phase will happen in the sign of Cancer, but the full moon will happen in Scorpio, and the third quarter will happen in Aquarius.
