Horn of Venus Silver Talisman (*Limited Edition*)Assembled on March 24th, 2023, between 14:26 - 15:23 GMT+3 Givataim Israel
The elected time for this Talisman features the highly dignified Venus in her own sign of Taurus, in conjunction with the Exalted Moon in Taurus, while both are culminating on the Midheaven. Both Venus and the Moon share in essential dignity in Taurus, which is not only strengthening both their significations but also powerfully helping in drawing them down to earth - through the contact of the Moon “translating” and embodying the virtues of Venus to the sublunar sphere, while also in alignment with the earth’s Midheaven.
This is a Talisman for all the Venusian gifts in Taurus, the gift of plenty and abundance, the gift of sensuality and attraction, the gifts of beauty and pleasure, artistic ability and a general feeling of well being.
In the Venus Horn Talisman, the earthly power (Taurus) of Venus is greatly emphasized, it gives all of what Venus naturally signifies (love, beauty, attraction etc.) with a tremendous support for gaining resources and abundance. It amplifies pleasure, artistic ability, and stress-reducing tranquility.
The design of the Talisman comes from the famous 16th century Magus John Dee, who was a Philosopher, Astrologer, Alchemist and an adviser to Queen Elizabeth I.
In a Magical text entitled “The Little Book of Black Venus” Dee gives this complicated design for a Venus Talisman, with many sigils of her spiritual hierarchy. He then gives a very long and elaborate ritualistic protocol for the creation of this Talisman, while also using a real bull’s horn. In our creation, I will create a silver or gold horn-shaped Talisman and follow the ancient traditional methods and consecrate this Talisman under the Venusian election stated above.
The Horn is, of course, the famous “horn of plenty” which is the symbol of good fortune and abundance. It's the horn of a bull which is one of the sacred animals ruled by Venus (as is the sign Taurus). The sigils are of the different spirits and intelligence (or spiritual powers) connected with Venus’s cosmic archetype.
