These things, like all magic, take time to work, and there are variables involved.* Most of the magic I do takes about two weeks to manifest. Sometimes sooner, sometimes later, but on average a couple weeks. Some people have said that's really good, but based on recent experiences, I think there are ways to make it even more immediate, with, ahem, practice.
More on that in posts to come.
Anyway, if you're looking for love by Valentine's Day, sooner is a better time than later to get your talisman and start directing the, uh, ahem... 'spirits' to manifest your desires.
I'm enjoying making these a whole lot. Being a Taurus, I have a special relationship with my Lady and her spirits. Fridays have become the busiest talisman making day of the week lately, and I'm able to pump out about three per Venus hour now, with all the practice I've gotten lately. I get all pumped up on Venus energy in the process, and then hit the post office to mail the talismans out.
The results are ... tangible. Although I am in a relationship that fulfills me in every way, it's still nice to be hit on when I stop at the liquor store to pick up beer and bourbon on the way home from the post office on Friday afternoons. That kind of thing never happened to me before. I'm more the nerdy shy guy in real life than anything else, but there's something different when you're pumping the Venus forces into the world at large. It sort of changes you, makes you more aware of body language, poise, tones of voice. It's like a "knowing and being known" feeling overtakes the normal reticence. Very cool.
Anyway, I still haven't bothered with setting up the web page, so you get the same purchasing options below that you had in the last post about this stuff. Past that are the usage instructions, in text form, that I'm sending out with the talismans.
Use the Buy Now option below to select the talisman you'd like to order:
I've developed a couple methods of working with the 4th Pentacle of Venus (Come to Me!) talismans, mostly because these are selling more than any others, of freaking course.
Method 1 is pretty simple, Method 2 is a little more Hermetic-Magic-ey.
Take a picture of the person you want to come to you, and place it on a table. Place the talisman over the image, with the 4th pentacle side (with the square design on it) facing up. Light seven green candles in a circle around the talisman and photo, and speak the names of the spirits (Achelia, Nogaliel, Nangariel, and Jocodia), and say “By your names and the seals of these Pentacles, I call you. Receive this offering of fire, and bring to me [Name of person], draw (her/him) to me, bring them to me in love and desire, let them have no rest until they contact me, bring them to me now.” Picture the person you want the whole time you’re saying this. Let the candles burn all the way out, if possible (I use tea-lite sized candles for this kind of thing because they burn out in a relatively short period of time). This method can take a couple of weeks to get the result. If you don’t have the result in a couple of weeks, do it again.
Set up an altar with the picture of the person you want to come to you, the pentacle, one tall white candle, one shorter green candle, a glass of sweet, heavy, rich wine of your most romantic preference, a scrying device, and a table of practice (see the Modern Angelic Grimoire on my site for an example). Get some sweet smelling incense, and have it and a lighter prepared on the altar.
Take a long hot shower or bath and get yourself completely clean. As you are cleaning yourself, recite the following prayer in Latin or English:
Adonai! Asperges me hyssopo et mundabor! (LORD! You will sprinkle me with hyssop and I will be cleansed!)
Dress in some plain white or plain black clothes. A robe would be ideal, but whatever you have is fine. Dress nicely and simply.
Anoint your head with some Abramelin oil, and say:
AOTH ABRAOTH BASYM ISAK TSABAOTH IAO
Hear me and make every spirit obedient unto me
So that every spirit of the firmament and of the aethyrs,
Upon the Earth and under the Earth,
Of dry land and in the water,
Of whirling air and rushing fire
And every spell and scourge of God may be obedient unto me!
AOTH ABRAOTH BASYM ISAK TSABAOTH IAO
Trace a circle clockwise around your room using a wand or dagger, beginning in the East. As you do, say, “I consecrate this ground for my defense.”
Light the white candle, and say, “First Father, Source and essence of all that I am, I call upon you to enlighten these works.”
Touch your scrying device (crystal ball, glass of water, etc.) with the wand/dagger and say, “Thou inanimate creature, be thou blessed and consecrated, that no evil spirit may appear within you, or if they do, that they be constrained to speak intelligibly and clearly.”
Take the pentacle in your left hand and say, “Achelia, Nogaliel, Nangariel, and Jocodia, thou spirits of Venus, I conjure thee to appear before me. Receive this offering and be now present in this crystal. By your names and by the seals upon this pentacle do I conjure thee. Come now from wherever you may be, and hear my words:
“I charge you to bring to me [person’s name], pictured here. Bring them to me, draw them to me, make them mine until such time as I have fulfilled my desires with them.
“Receive this offering of Fire (light the green candle) and of wine (drink the wine, leaving a little in the bottom of the glass), and use the fortifying sustenance to bring [name of person] to me, immediately immediately immediately!”
Address the photo of the person:
“[Person’s name], I call you to me. Come to me and be mine. Hoc est enim os de ossibus et caro de carne mea, erunt dua in carne mea!”
Address the gathered spirits:
“Thou spirits who have attended, I thank you for your presence and your attention. I charge you now, receive these offerings in gladness and attend to my desires.
“As you have come in peace, go forth now in power to accomplish my Will.”
Wait a minute or two, and then put out the tall white candle. Let the green one burn out completely, if you can do so safely. If you can’t let it burn out all at once without starting a fire, burn it whenever you can keep an eye on it until it is gone.
After the rite, have something to eat, like an apple with bread and cheese. Something tasty and smooth that will bring you back to Earth.
