If you’ve done the inner work (or are doing the inner work – that stuff never ends), and know yourself to be ready for love, this little lantern will help shine your light into the world. This love lantern Talisman is imbued with all the power of the Universe to support you in loving yourself enough to recognise and welcome the love of another.
This talisman has been created from a vintage solid gold charm, transformed into a magickal talisman through specific ritual magick at a carefully astrologically elected time. You may well see scratches, dents and small marks on your talisman due to its age and former life. This only adds to the authenticity and unique nature of the piece. None of the Ouroboros Limited Editions are brand new. So much more than a piece of jewellery, this talisman is a personal piece of magickal power.
The final image is a picture taken of your talisman during the magickal ritual.
From our Astrologer – Haley Smith:
These talismans for love, partnerships, and deepening a sense of love for oneself were blessed on February 26, 2021 at 8PM (GMT) – a time at which astrological configurations greatly supported the gifts of love imbued in these talismans.
The sign rising in the east on the horizon was cardinal air sign Libra at 3°. This is a Venus-ruled sign, archetype, and powerful stop along the journey of the zodiac that has much to teach us about the art of connection. In Libra, we enter the realms of the sacred mirror of partnership – the almost-psychedelic domain of what we stand to learn about ourselves through friends, lovers, family, and beyond.
Libra, ever graceful and diplomatic, is a master at the art of connection – though at times, can struggle with expressions of connection that forgo the relationship with self. Codependency, passive aggression, and abandonment of the self are some of the shadow expressions of Libra, and ones that many of us experience in our learnings (and unlearnings) of love. Many of the lessons our Libran loved ones learn can teach the rest of us much as well, the primary one being that the love we have for ourselves informs the love, people, and experiences we choose to allow in our lives.
With Libra ascending at this hour, these talismans encourage the wearer to rise into the higher octaves of Libra’s expressions: sacred, balanced reciprocity; relishing in the love and beauty we have for ourselves; and consciously engaging in partnerships with people who encourage and find joy in the cultivation of our harmonious relationships with ourselves. This sign also has domain over the concept of Justice. These talismans invite us to reflect upon the ways that colonialism, the myth of white supremacy, and all iterations of the complex web of systemic oppression have contributed to the issues around love and connection that are so commonplace –– and to heal from those.
Strengthening these themes is the fresh cycle of Venus’s dance through Pisces, the sign that Venus is exalted in. The core gifts that Pisces brings – unconditional love, profound empathy, and the healing of the illusion of separation – are welcome guests within Venus’s lair of connection, pleasure, and aesthetics. Venus falls in the 5th house at this hour, a part of the chart ruled by Leo that speaks much to artistry, romance, passion, and playfulness – and at a deeper level, the reclamation of the inner child’s divine spark. Joined by the Sun and buoyant Jupiter in this same house, this configuration imbues deep love for the self, and invites us to expand even deeper into our joie de vivre.
Venus, the moon, and the Sun all make harmonious connections to the IC – imum coeli, Latin for ‘bottom of the sky’. The IC speaks to our sense of foundation, home, and belonging, as well as deeply-rooted belief systems inherited in our rearing. With these flowing connections being made to the IC, these talismans support us in feeling rooted in our being, healing early dynamics about love, and weaving pathways for partnerships where we can truly thrive.
