Some might think a champagne bucket a surprising choice for a sobriety talisman, but this piece cried out to be so transformed! A symbol of celebration more than anything else, this articulated gold charm opens to reveal a golden glass. This is the sobriety talisman for you if you are ready to embrace the JOYFUL and CELEBRATORY energy associated with no longer being tied to toxic and self destructive behaviours. Perhaps you’re over self destruction and want to remind yourself of the freedom and joy available to you now. If so, this is the talisman for you.
If you’re at the point in your life where you are ready to choose yourself again and again, over the often more socially and culturally endorsed choice of choosing a drink / drugs / to suppress yourself and make your true self smaller, this little champagne bucket may well be your missing companion on this wild ride.
All of the sobriety talismans are made from carefully chosen vintage charms depicting water-carriers, tea pots, coffee pots or jugs. It’s important that the shape of the talisman is a symbol in alignment with the talisman’s intention.
Sobriety is an incredibly powerful and empowering choice that one makes afresh, every day. Possibly one of the most life-changing decisions many of us ever make, these sobriety talismans have been imbued with all the powers of the Universe to support you in this decision, and therefore in choosing yourself over all else whether for the first time or the 1,000,000th time.
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.

From Astrologer, Haley Smith:
Blessed on 25 June 2021 at 1030am, freshly after June’s full moon in Capricorn, these talismans are imbued with energies of commitment, diligence, deep healing, and the medicine of playfulness.
With Virgo ascending at this hour, the wearer is blessed with all of the devoted and medicinal qualities of this sign. Virgo traditionally has domain over health and wellness, and is a powerfully committed sign. Dedication to the journey of sobriety is a potent vow to make to oneself, and Virgo rising here strengthens one’s commitment on that path. Additionally, the ascendant forms a harmonious tie to the Sun in Cancer – encouraging a wellspring of confidence, autonomy, and deep compassion for oneself along the path of recovery.
The moon in Capricorn falls in the 5th house of passion, courage, and creative self-expression. At a deeper level, the 5th house speaks to the divine spark of the inner child, and the path of reclaiming the parts of ourselves that so many of us lose along the way. Capricorn’s dutiful, structured, and healthily boundaried nature in such a playful part of the chart brings a balance of both focus and fun. The moon’s placement here serves as a beautiful reminder of the necessity of play and pleasure on the journey of healing – and of deepening one’s relationship with the inner child.
A grand trine between Mars, Chiron, and the South Node here brings welcome support in maintaining the energy needed to persevere on the path of recovery. Chiron, the wounded healer and liberator in astrology and in myth, is a mighty ally here. He gently guides us in our navigation through the unprecedented inner depths we are often invited into throughout our healing – which fortifies us to share our wisdom with those who need it most. With harmonious ties from Saturn in the 6th house of medicine and wellness, the unwavering structure, focus, and discipline of Saturn deeply fortify the commitment to one’s healing.
