Planetary Exaltation Pendant (*Limited Edition*)Assembled on the April 7th, 2019 between 06:10-06:45 GMT+3.
About the Assembly time:
It is not any day that we have 5 planets so 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 powers.
Made as the Sun (Exalted in Aries) was rising, In its own planetary day (Sunday) and planetary Hour. As the Sun is the ultimate life animating power, centering on its rising brings the universal energy of life, in its most exalted radiation, to the fore. Thereby, not only serving as a very powerful solar Talisman but also as a general magnifier of the other planetary placements, which are oriented to it as their center and source of power.
The Planetary Exaltation (star of Magi) is one of the most complex projects I have ever done. The pendant is designed together with the Astrologer, Michael Ofek
This is a rare and one of a kind talisman
that I have made as THE GENUINE THING.
The Thema Mundi - Planetary Exaltation Talisman
This powerful design has been sold out for more than two years now. We finally get a chance to recreate it. The Planetary Exaltation Talisman is one of the most complex projects we have ever done. In this Talisman, each planet lies within the sign of the zodiac representing its place of exaltation, all embedded in the Thema Mundi - the ancient archetypal chart of the cosmos. The Thema Mundi is purported to be the paradigmatic rulership scheme and planet-sign relationships. As the Thema Mundi has the sign Cancer rising, placing the planets in their exalted signs reveals a powerful pattern having all the planets in strong house positions (the traditional “good/powerful” houses which aspect the Asc). Jupiter is exalted in rising Cancer symbolizes the birth and generation of earthly life, the Sun is exalted in culminating Aries, at the summit (zenith) of the Cosmos, etc.
This astrological image serves as the cosmic emblem of heightened and perfected planetary powers. And although it's technically impossible to have all planets exalted in the heaven at one time (Mercury cannot be further than 27 degrees from the Sun, so cannot be in Virgo when the Sun is in Aries) even having more than two planets in exaltation, at any one time, is pretty scarce. But at this event, we have all three planets at the top of the Thema Mundi chart (Sun- Aries, Moon -Taurus, Venus -Pisces) and two in their Rulership ! a very auspicious time to summon the image of the exalted cosmos as a whole.
The Talisman contains the seven classical planets. Beneath each sign and symbol, Is placed a different type of metal, corresponding to the planet and/or sign according to the ancient tradition (see correspondences below). The result is a genuine Talisman invoking the combined and united representation of highly ‘dignified’ cosmic forces, vibrating the music of the spheres in the different universal virtues of life, power, love, success, protection, security, luck and resilience,
“what is meant by the exaltation of each individual planet, in which it is raised up to a maximum of its own natural force. …Whenever in a chart the majority of the planets are in their exaltation, then they indicate the greatest prosperity” From the Mathesis - Julius Firmicus Maternus (306 to 337 AD)
According to the Exaltation scheme, the seven classical planets are exalted in these signs:
Sun- Aries, Moon -Taurus, Venus -Pisces, Mars - Capricorn, Mercury - Virgo, Jupiter - Pisces, Saturn - Libra.
This paradigmatic combination of metals and symbols represent an ideal situation in which each planet (representing a pure expression of a fundamental principle in our lives) is in a heightened position of exaltations or, in other words, its natural powers and qualities are strongly expressed and tremendously beneficial.
Metal, star signs and zodiac relationships
In ancient times, people were familiar with seven main stars – The sun, the moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Each star and sign of the Zodiac was represented by a specific metal:
Sun + Leo = Gold
Moon + Cancer = Silver
Mercury + Gemini + Virgo = Mercury/quicksilver (replaced by Electrum)
Venus + Taurus + Libra = Copper
Mars + Aries + Scorpio = Iron
Jupiter + Sagittarius + Pisces = Tin
Saturn + Capricorn + Aquarius = Lead (replaced by Zinc)
