Brilliance and magnanimity.
Limited Edition - will be assembled on 26th of July (during two time frames).
After our first Sirius Talisman (for the conjunction with exalted jupiter), We are finally able to make a Talisman for the auspicious Heliacal rising of Sirius, undoubtedly the most important celestial event for the ancient Egyptians.
We will be making the Talisman on two powerful dates reflecting its Heliacal rising phases;
one for its true helical rising and one for its apparent Heliacal rising, both are said to be very strong and are well documented in ancient texts, and defined by famous ancient authors like Ptolemy and Germinius.
The true Heliacal rising* (26.7) is the time that the sun and Sirius rise together on the eastern horizon, this phase acts a bit like a conjunction, as the power of the sun and that of Sirius blend and strengthen one another. this is the time that Sirius is officially stepping out of its “concealed” phase and starting a new cycle, gradually becoming visible in the night’s sky.
The apparent Heliacal rising* (6.8) is the time when Sirius is rising before the sun, becoming visible to the human eye, after being hidden from sight for an average of 60 days since its Heliacal setting. this is the time when Sirius is said to be reborn, making his first visual appearance In the morning sky.
These phases renders any fixed star strong and amplified, and its powers readily manifest. For Sirius these phases usher a burst of life force and creative energy, giving brilliance and magnanimity, combined with the sun and jupiter in leo this is a uniquely strong Sirius Talisman.
Both are created on the exact morning rising times, placing Sirius on the Ascendent (horizon) of the Talisman charts where he and the sun are extremely strong. In this way their powers, and life giving virtues, are readily available and radiate from the native waring the Talisman.
*the dates of the phases change according to different locations (latitude) on the earth, these are calculated according to Israel (32N4).
SIRIUS was very important to the Egyptians, as it was Helically rising in the summer coinciding with the flooding of the Nile, and also marked the beginning point of the ancient Egyptian yearly calendar (and its Decanic division..see below). SIRIUS was considered a life giver, and was affiliated with the goddess Isis.
SIRIUS is a star of success and power, excellence, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion and passion for achieving ones goals. It marks immense creative talents in any field, and makes the native Brilliant and inspired.
The images on the Talisman are the Image of Sopdet (also Sepdet or Sothis). Sopdet is the goddess that represents Sirius. Sopdet is displayed, riding her boat in the night sky, with a star on top of her headdress while holding a lotus flower. The Lotus probably represents one year's cycle, thus linking her to the yearly rising of Sirius and the new year.
The back of the Talisman bears the Egyptian Hieroglyph of Sirius and the ancientmagical seal of Sirius. The canister contains Juniper and Wormwood according to an ancient formula for the making a Sirius Talisman. The formula can be found in the hermetic writings of Hermes and Cornelius Agrippa.
Fixed Stars Talismans
Talisman for fixed stars were considered very powerful and unique, as they represent emanations of forces outside and above our solar system, reflecting in a sense, super human virtues and powers. Most of the shining fixed stars are gigantic Suns extremely bigger than our own.
The name “fixed stars” marks the difference between the apparent movements of the planets (meaning wanderers) and the stars and constellations which seems fixed and unmoving from earth point of view. For the ancients the fixed position of those Stars relative to each other, to the moving planets and the earth’s rotation, was considered a mark of their divinity, as they are unchanging and therefore eternal.
