Working on the symbols that will appear on the new Spica talisman. It will contain sage that was picked and consecrated on the 17th between 12:15 – 12:35 during its exact conjunction with the Sun when It is rising on the Ascendent and culminating on the Midheaven, further supported by an exalted Moon in Taurus.
The finished design will be available for orders tomorrow!!
The Spica Talisman –
Powerful fixed star Talisman – for Unbounded good fortune, happiness and protection.
The star spica is probably one of the most notorious fixed stars 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 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 to her lute bearer. As Isis is the goddess of fertility and life creating goddess, Spica symbolised the fruits of her life energy that she gave nature and man. Virgo is also associated with Ceres, the greek goddess of the harvest.
Spica is also associated with the Šala the babylonian Goddess of agriculture and fertility. The Talismans Image is a depiction of the goddess giving the wheat to humans. this depiction comes from an ancient cylinder seal.
A limited number will be assembled on October the 28th 2016 between 10:30 -11:15 GMT+3 While the moon is in conjunction to Jupiter which is rising out of the Sun’s rays with Mercury cazimi in Scorpio.
The Chaldean order, is essentially a hierarchy of powers that are represented by heavenly bodies (the stars), this order of powers is expressed on the axis of time as orbits of the seven discovered planets – Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, The Sun, Venus, Mercury and the Moon. Each of these controls a stage in the linear process of time. From the furthest and slowest – Saturn, till the nearest and fastest, the moon.
According to the tradition of alchemy the seven planets parallel and are reflected purely in seven metals. These metals are raw material and stages in the creation of gold/ the philosopher’s stone. The metals are actually material expressions that reflect essential principles of creation and of the spirit. The metals evolve alchemistically towards, gold – in the same way, the human being evolves towards spirit.
According to the Chaldean order the planet relate to metals like this: Saturn– lead Jupiter– tin Mars– Iron The Sun– Gold Venus– Copper Mercury– Mercury The moon– silver
The Chaldean order pendant contains the symbols of the 7 planets arranged in the Chaldean order in the inner circle and the signs of the wheel of the zodiac in the outer circle. The middle part of the pendant contains seven metals, iron, electrum – an ancient alloy of gold and silver which replaces the lead, pure gold, silver, copper, and brass (replaces the metal, mercury) and zinc. The power of the pendant is in the combination of the seven metals, in which each are connected and strengthen different qualities of the person in accordance with the planet to which that particular medal is connected.
The Chaldean order connects these qualities according to a flow chart, in such a way that each one will be its right place in relation to the other, and in this way it will express its power to its maximum while maintaining harmony.
The pendant is a very strong protection talisman that has in its power the ability to bring success and healing to its bearer, along with supporting his personal development. The beauty of the amulet is that it suits every person and situation, because it contains all the latent qualities and each person uses exactly the ones he needs at a specific time.
A friend of the family who is also an antique collector brought me few ancient Jewish coins and asked me if I have an idea for a jewel based on them. I took a few coins from him and told him that I would think about it. After we parted, I looked at one of the coins. On the coin there was blurred, rubbed out writing from two thousand years ago. On one side of the coin there was a motif of a vine leaf with an ancient Hebrew writing, and on the other side there was a sort of jug/amphora also with ancient Hebrew writing.
Out of curiosity, I took a paper and started to decipher what was written. After a few minutes, there appeared on the page two words- “Year two”. On the other side was written “Freedom for Zion”.
In seconds I understood…
It was an original coin from the Jewish revolt against the Roman Empire. Year two was the second year of the revolt against the Romans- Year 67 of the Common Era (A.D.). The Jug in the center of the coin is one of the holy objects of the temple in Jerusalem, the jar of manna that was kept as a reminder of the people of Israel’s wanderings in the desert.
The revolt against the empire broke out because of the cruel oppression and the corruption of the Roman regime, and also due to the division amongst the different sects in the kingdom of Judah. When I looked at the coin I couldn’t help thinking about what was happening in different parts of the world; The middle class that in different parts of the world have despaired from the cynical exploitation of the economic bodies and governments. The uprising of the middle class against this continued cynical exploitation around the world will at the end of the day lead to change.
My identification with all those who are fighting against those corporations stems from a clear understanding that has sharpened within me over the years; behind the feeling of freedom that we are given in western countries stands a sort of enslavement of will. The high standard of living relative to previous centuries created a comfortable situation where we have paid our taxes and lived in relative welfare and comfort. The problem started in the last few decades when the masses discovered that they can’t afford to purchase a house and have a satisfying lifestyle with their current level of income.
My first understanding started in childhood when I was a student in the “Education System”. I didn’t understand why the learning material was the same for everybody and consisted mainly of repeating information and suppression of creativity. The constant Mantra of the teachers was: “What will you do without matriculation papers?” That was what was important for the system. Not personal development, original thinking, or creativity, rather a stamp that says you memorized material that for the most part is completely useless for the student. Only after years did I understand that the object of this system is to lead the student at the end of the day to become yet another worker in the organized economic system, another taxpayer giving his hard earned money to the government.
The coin that appears on the front of the pendant and ring/pendant is an exact rendition of the original coin. In the center there is the jar of manna and around it is the writing, Year Two.
On the back side of the pendant (and on the sides of the ring) is the date tree which is the ancient symbol of the kingdom of Judah. Around which I have added in ancient Hebrew the writing “Ben-Hurin”-which means “a free man”.
The pendant and ring symbolize the personal yearning of each and every one of us for freedom, justice, and self actualization. The intention of the pendant and ring is to inspire and encourage rebelling against convention, and to promote the quest and aspiration for freedom and self-actualization.
Originally designed for the rare and sold out edition of the Venus Transit Talisman (from the 6th of June 2012). Re assembled on December 2015.
The Mayan have put a lot of emphasis on the cycles of Venus in their calendar. They believed that Venus is the god Quetzalcoatl, and the period of Venus helical rising and setting were linked to his appearance and disappearance or death and rebirth from the underworld.
To honor the Mayan tradition and their heritage, we have designed these two unique Talismans – a pendant and a ring. The pendant Talisman is composed from the Mayan symbols of Venus and the Sun, which were fused together exactly at this narrow time frame! The ring is composed of the Mayan symbol for Venus and I have made the models in the same traditional design of the ancient Mayan jewelers.
The symbol of Venus is set with diamonds which is the stone symbolizing the traits of Venus, while the Sun symbol is set with ruby.
The Talisman was made while Jupiter was rising in the east and the Moon was culminating in its Exaltation sign of Taurus!, this will tremendously strengthen the whole configuration, while making the Talisman express a multitude of supporting and beneficial virtues.
This configuration is a heightening in popularity and charisma, artistic talent and creativity – mainly of the performing art but not only. This combination has a flare for drama, movement, acting and a publicity, a general excitement and freedom of inner beauty and individual expression.
On October 11th we had a very auspicious astrological alignment, Jupiter and Mercury met for their yearly reunion, this time in the sign of Libra, while helically rising from the rays of the Sun (morning stars – rising in the morning just before sunrise).
Jupiter, which is just gradually starting to appear in the morning sky, beginning a new cycle (after his ‘rebirth’ conjunction with the Sun). It is regaining its strength and productive powers while also joined with Mercury, both enjoying leading the Sun as “doriphory” (spear bearers). Ruling the mutable cross of the Zodiac (Sagittarius-Gemini, Pisces-Virgo), they both signify different aspects of knowledge and learning, practical and spiritual. Their Meeting in Libra enhances the ability for them to reach an optimum balanced proportion with each other. Both share triplicity rulership over libra (air) and also considered well placed by sect (diurnal planets in a masculine sign. mercury is considered diurnal when rising before the sun).
These conjunctions stimulate an increase of mental abilities, broadening the capacity of perception, understanding and synthesis of knowledge. They enhance good memory, graceful speech, a higher capacity for learning, public speaking and gaining honour and success through these activities.
Jupiter signifies higher knowledge and intuition, philosophy and ethics. Mercury signifies discursive reasoning, practical wisdom, language and speech. both together in Libra bring a sense of balance between the right and left hemispheres of the brain, between abstract knowledge and pragmatic logic. Together they invoke the potential for profound wisdom and understanding.
The words inscribed on the talisman are the greek word Gnosis (γνῶσις) and Sophia (Σοφία), both word are words for knowledge and wisdom. Gnosis it quite literally ‘knowledge from direct experience’, but also used to denote higher spiritual and intuitive knowledge and the apprehension of truths through mystical insight. Sophia is the greek word for wisdom (also the name of the goddess of wisdom) the use of the word has to do with the wise power of reasoning about those gnostic truths, and their wisdom exhibited in action.
The center of the talisman is a replica of an ancient Roman coin with the figure of Mercury holding his staff – the Caduceus.
The Galaxy ring is based on the spiral structure of the M51 galaxy. The M51 galaxy is one of the better known galaxies and can be seen with relative ease from the Earth. M51 has a spiral structure similar to our own Milky Way galaxy.
Just to put things in perspective – M51 has a diameter of some 11.2 million light years with a mass equivalent to the mass of 160 million stars like our Sun…sounds huge doesn’t it?
The spiral structure presents in graphic form one of the mathematical laws that are the basis of the Universe. The spiral formation can be found in countless examples within nature from the shape of the seeds in a Sunflower and a pine cone, in sea shells, cacti and through to the structure of entire huge galaxies.
The spiral formation is based on two important mathematical laws: • The Fibonacci number sequence – a mathematical series from which reality is constructed. • The Golden Rule – the mathematical proportions that exist in nature that we see in things of beauty and harmony.
The ring was made at the request of a client. The thing I found compelling in the ring (and that was also my intention when I designed it) was the sense of proportion that one feels when he stands in front of something so huge. Suddenly, we begin to understand our place in the monumental formation that is the universe…
This symbol was received in direct transmission from Archangel Metatron by Dvora Pearlman. It was received as a teacher and a tool – to learn, to use and to connect with divine flow and its manifestation in three dimensional realities. The Hebrew word for abundance is Shefa.
SHEFA is a word in its highest most profound meaning, a tool for creating abundance.
It holds a powerful kinetic energy that when coupled with intent for the highest good and aligned with Divine will, can move mountains or feed the world.
One of my favorite concepts is the realization that we humans are in fact the universe itself, on an endless journey of evolution, learning and trying to understand itself through our human experience.
The Golden Mean Spiral
The Golden Mean Spiral structure represents two well known sacred geometry patterns: the golden mean (phi) spiral and the Fibonacci spiral. The Mysterious Golden Mean also known as the “Golden Ratio” or Phi value (1.618) after the 21st letter of the Greek alphabet, PHI [φ] is a pattern that appears all throughout nature and the universe. It is a cosmic law which is even more mysterious and profound in its implications than pi. Like pi, phi is a number with no arithmetical solution. The decimals just keep on going into infinity without ever repeating themselves. The unique thing about this number is that it can be found incorporated in most organic structures. From the bone structure of human beings to the seed pattern of a sunflower to the spiral of a sea shell, the phi proportion is there, underlying all biological structures, seeming to be a geometrical blueprint for life itself.
Plato went so far as to call the phi ratio the “key to the physics of the cosmos”. Phi is calculated at 1.6180339+…, and while it cannot be worked out arithmetically, it can be easily obtained with a compass and straightedge.
The Fibonacci Spiral
Another Sacred Geometry Spiral Pattern can be found in the Fibonacci sequence which bears a special relationship to phi. First postulated by the medieval mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci, this sequence was used to describe the growth patterns of plants. It goes: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233, etc. It is made by adding the last two numbers of the sequence to get the next one, as in: 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5, 3+5=8, 5+8=13, etc. This sequence’s relationship to phi is that if you divide one term of the sequence into the next one, the result begins to quickly approach the transcendental number 1.6180339+…
Even the microscopic realm is not immune to Fibonacci. The DNA molecule measures 34 angstroms long by 21 angstroms wide for each full cycle of its double helix spiral. These numbers, 34 and 21, are numbers in the Fibonacci series, and their ratio 1.6190476 closely approximates Phi, 1.6180339.
Scientists have found that the height of one unit of the DNA helix is related to its width in a proportion equal to the “The Golden Spiral (Ratio)” or the Fibonacci and Padovan number series that form the bridge from the number patterns found in in the double helix of DNA and a cross sectional view of the DNA molecule from the top reveals two pentagons (whose angles are determined by the golden ratio).
So once again we can see that we are the universe itself trying to learn itself and understand itself through countless eons of evolution…
72 Names of G-D Tablet
Part of Protection Jewelry Collection – https://goo.gl/KsJ9tv
(Sale ends in one day)
One of the things that always fascinated me was the parallel between the “revealed name” of G-d in Judaism, the tetragrammaton – name with the four letters YHWH and the tetractys of Pythagoras. The tetragrammaton incorporates basically the abstract idea that G-d is space time itself, existence and consciousness. The explanation of this is that these four letters in Hebrew make up the word “being”, meaning to be, and also the words : was, is, will be.
When Moses asked The Burning bush of the name of G-d, he receives a rather abstract and surprising answer (in comparison to a time where most of the world was involved in pagan rituals) “I will be what I will be”, something that is existence itself, devoid of any description or definition.
The Tetractys of Pythagoras is a triangle and it has 4 lines that contain 10 points. This symbol is the basis for all the mathematics and the geometry and the laws of the universe. If we take the Tetragrammaton and place its letters on the Tetractys and we add up its numerical value, we will receive the number 72 that appears in the ancient sources of the Kabbalah as 72 names (72 names of G-d).
According to ancient traditions if we take the central verses in the Book of Exodus -14 and divide them in a certain way we will receive 72 combinations of three letters. If we connect their combination we will receive a name of 216 letters. According to Kabbalistic tradition, these combinations are the name or the formula by which means, among other things the world was created. The source of the formula is not known and also the way to use it has been lost over the years. These combination of letters appear in ancient Jewish amulets.
The silver or gold tablet of the 72 names is meant for carrying and many use it as an amulet for protection for defense, healing and success. The search for the ultimate equation or formula that is present in the entire universe has always fascinated mathematicians and physicists.
