About the Assembly Time
The Moon’s conjunction with Mercury and both were also aligned with the fixed star Rigel! Rigel is the brightest of the Orion constellation and the 7th brightest in the night sky. In the ancient world, Rigel was considered a very fortunate fixed star, denoting benevolence, honour, fame, wealth, happiness, renown, and intellectual, inventive and mechanical abilities. According to an ancient text attributed to Hermes Trismegistus, Rigel and Aldebaran are the most fortunate of all fixed stars.
Together, the very dignified Mercury in Gemini aligned with Rigel, greatly enhances mercurial abilities and their manifestation powers in the world. Their combined utility can bring great powers to the mind, and also achieve great success in their worldly affairs and activities. This Talisman is great for enhancing learning skills and communication, memory and deep understanding and inventiveness. It is great for business success and for achieving fame and wealth in general, and also through one’s knowledge, writing, teaching and communication abilities.
The Mercury Talisman election features Mercury in his own sign of Gemini, culminating at the Midheaven, while also ruling the rising sign (Virgo). Mercury is conjunct the Moon and the Fixed Star Rigel.
This Talisman combines the metals ruled by the two lights: Gold - Sun, Silver - Moon. It includes their ancient astrological glyphs and is created under specific astrological times to draw out, intensify, reinforce and bring to life those symbols. The Lights are “wedded” by Mercury the androgynous universal spirit that is in charge of mediating these polarities (symbolized by his Astrological glyph together with the symbol of the caduceus).
This event is such a time, It features both lights in their exalted positions. Strongly Highlighting both sides of our soul and human experience. Offering the opportunity to balance these opposites of our nature and 'alchemize' them together.
This Talisman is intended to enhance the “marriage” of both principal energies, strong in themselves but ultimately the strongest when united. This is portrayed by the alchemical interweaving of these opposing forces by the Mercurial element (represented by mercury’s glyph and the winged caduceus) uniting body and soul, feminine and masculine, initiating the Androgyny, or the state of unified duality, which is the culmination of the alchemist's Great Work, producing the alchemical tincture/philosopher's stone.
The marriage of the Sun and the Moon causes the emergence of our most pure, androgynous essential self, and acts to transform the raw and chaotic and polarized material - attached self (Prima Materia) into gold (spirit) by way of purification and unification of our basic elements.
