A pig has been a symbol of excess, and of wealth and abundance for hundreds of years, across all cultures. Part of the association of pigs with wealth and abundance comes from the ease and relatively low cost of keeping them, combined with the significant, and guaranteed return on investment – As the old Irish saying goes; “The pig is the gentleman who pays the rent”.
When living well and with money in the bank, we are described as living ‘high on the hog’ – alluding to both being able to enjoy the costliest parts of the animal, those found above the belly as well as living off the abundance of meat and fat found on the animal.
In Norse mythology, the pig is a magickal creature associated with wealth and prosperity, and especially with the capacity for mobility. The boar named Gullinbursti belonged to the goddess Freyr. This was no ordinary pig; this boar could easily and smoothly fly across the sky – today when we have money we have this same mobility.
In Chinese culture, the pig holds an important place in the zodiac and this talisman would be the perfect wealth talisman for someone born in a year of the pig.
This golden pig talisman takes its place in the tradition of money charms and talismans that harnesses all of the good energy of wealth and abundance associated with the pig.
This talisman has been created from a vintage solid gold piece, 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 and each piece is carefully inspected by our master goldsmith and jeweler in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. He then refurbishes each piece to wearable condition, polishes and securely solders the jump ring in place.
So much more than a piece of jewellery, this talisman is a personal piece of magickal power.

In true Leo style, it cannot be overstated that these money talismans are incredibly special. This set was ritually blessed shortly after the new moon in Leo, and this year, the lunation in Leo is particularly potent. August 8th is always the peak of the Lions’ Gate Portal, a time of year long heralded as powerfully auspicious. In 2021, this date happened to fall on a new moon – the parts of the moon’s journey that are dark, fertile, and ripe for intention-setting and spellwork for all things new that we desire in our lives. In numerology, 8/8 is a frequency of abundance, and a deep invitation into healing our relationship with wealth and money.
At this hour, the Sun and the Moon conjoined in Leo in the 8th house of magnetism, eroticism, death, rebirth, transformation, and resources – most notably, the resources of others. The combination of Leo’s boldness and desire to shine with the deep magnetism of the 8th house makes for talismans that call on us to draw in the wealth we deserve. Inherent in strengthening our magnetism to wealth is having the courage to journey through the wounds, generational aches, and unconscious hangups we may carry around money. These talismans aid us in doing just that, with the brilliance of the Sun in the 8th house here helping to illuminate in ourselves what was once obscured, and create the space for wealth in all forms.
The Sun-Moon conjunction is also dancing with several fantastic grand trines in the chart here. Grand trines speak to beautifully flowing, harmonious energies, and concentrated into the talismans, helps us to cultivate equally flowing and harmonious channels of wealth in our lives.
Sagittarius was rising at this hour, with a tight conjunction from the Part of Fortune in the 1st house of self, identity, and the body. Sagittarius brings the medicine of expansion, joviality, and luck – and the Part of Fortune in astrology speaks to where we may experience prosperity as well. These talismans ooze good fortune, and with harmonious ties to Chiron in the 3rd house, help us rewrite any outdated stories around wealth.
Saturn’s influences help bring groundedness and pragmatism to an otherwise fiery chart. Falling in the 2nd house of money, income, self-love, and the Earth, Saturn aids us in somatically anchoring new belief systems in which we fully believe in our worthiness of the sensuous – and our right to have and experience the beauty we desire. Saturn in humanitarian, revolutionary Aquarius here also aids us in potent reflection of how wealth is shifting and must shift collectively – and how we might share our wealth of money, skills, joy, and beyond in service of a better world.
