This post is about the planetary talisman of Mercury. Parts of this fantastic talisman are described in the “Three books of occult philosophy” written by H. C. Agrippa.
The talisman contains:
the square of Mercury
the seal of Mercury
the seal of the Intelligence Spirit of Mercury, Tiriel (the mind of Mercury)
the seal of the Spirit (Demon) of Mercury, Taphthartharath
The numbers in the square of Mercury are obtained from another square. That “other” square of Mercury contains Hebrew letters.
Because each Hebrew letter has a numerical value, it is possible to end up with a square of Mercury that contains numbers.
The seal of Mercury, the sigil of Tiriel and the sigil of Taphthartharath are all born from the square of Mercury.
Some people like to use the numerical square of Mercury in their rituals, but some do not use the square.
Some people construct their own version of this talisman: they include the square of Mercury, the seal of Mercury and the seal of Tiriel. The sigil of Taphthartharath is not included in their version of this talisman.
It is said that the Intelligence Spirit of Mercury, Tiriel, is benevolent. Taphthartharath is the Spirit (Demon) of Mercury, and he is malevolent.
If I hooked your attention, I want to offer you two more planetary talismans:
The task of the Intelligence Spirit of Mercury in this talisman is to control and temper Taphthartharath. The talisman is of “neutral” nature then.
The Spirits we collaborate with influence our thought patterns in both the conscious and the subconscious minds.
Such talismans like this one will influence you powerfully and push you into action.
You know that we create our lives with the power of our thoughts. Thoughts become thought forms as time goes by. Then we act and do things.
Such talismans like this one are created on a specific day of the week and during a specific astrological hour.
The sphere of Mercury on the Tree of Life is ruled by the planet Mercury. The rules of Qabalah say that the day of the week assigned to the Sephira Hod, to the Qlipha Samael and to the planet Mercury is Wednesday.
Create this talisman during a Wednesday and during the hour of Mercury. Full moons are best.
Planetary positions in real time are very important too.
It is a good idea to have your natal (birth) chart done for you. The planets in our natal charts can be fortunate and also unfortunate.
Timing: the planetary talisman of Mercury
If Mercury (in your natal chart) is fortunate:
This talisman will make you grateful and lucky, and bring you financial gain and also protect you from poverty. It will make you wise and grant you a good understanding of the Occult.
You have to take into account real time retrogrades too. Mercury should be direct and in a good position in the sky when you create this talisman.
If Mercury (in your natal chart) is unfortunate:
This talisman will do the opposite, that is, it will not bring you financial gain and it will not protect you from poverty. It will not grant you a good understanding of the Occult and it will not make you wise.
This post is about the planetary talisman of Mars for extreme courage and resilience against adversity.
The square of Mars has its Hebrew equivalent and in that equivalent, each number is substituted with a Hebrew letter.
The numbers are obtained from the Hebrew style Mars square, because each Hebrew letter has a numerical value.
The square of Mars is a part of the complete planetary talisman of Mars.
The talisman of Mars is a very powerful thing, because it contains the seals of Mars, Barzabel and Graphiel.
It is not recommended to experiment with alien spirits (they are from Mars) like Barzabel and Graphiel just for the sake of fun.
Summon Barzabel and Graphiel when you really need to prepare a very powerful talisman for extreme courage and resilience against the hardships of life.
The summoning of these alien spirits should be done during a Tuesday and preferably during the astrological hour of Mars.
Graphiel is considered benevolent, but Barzabel is malevolent.
If you summon both Barzabel and Graphiel, ask Graphiel to control the forces of Mars, and most importantly Barzabel.
It is not clever to only work with Barzabel, because your life may soon become a disaster.
You may invite chaos into your life, as well as become faced with an internal change towards the worse.
Barzabel and Sorath are not sweet demons
Barzabel can be compared to the demon of Sun, Sorath. I have done spells with Sorath and Nakhiel.
Although I asked Nakhiel to control the powerful forces of Sun, and particularly Sorath, I was changing internally, and to the worse.
Prior to doing spells with such planetary talismans, it is clever to know your natal chart, because if your Sun is unfortunate, you will start changing rapidly and become very cruel.
The same applies to the planetary talisman of Mars, and of course, any other planetary talismans.
To be on the safe side, I advice to do a ritual with planetary seals maximum twice per year. And do not work only with Sorath or only with Barzabel.
You have to counter balance the destructive forces like Sorath and Barzabel with their corresponding planetary Intelligences Nakhiel and Graphiel.
Natal charts and timing: the planetary talisman of Mars
Mars being fortunate:
The seals of Mars, Barzabel, Graphiel and the square of Mars, if Mars is fortunate (in your natal chart) will make you potent in war, judgements and petitions, terrible to your enemies, and victorious against them.
You have to consider retrogrades in real time too, that is, when you are creating the talisman.
Mars must be fortunate (direct and in a good position in relation to other planets) if you want the talisman to empower you.
Mars being unfortunate:
But if Mars is unfortunate (in your natal chart), this talisman will cast you down from dignities, honours and make you lose your riches.
It will cause discord, strife and the hate of people. It will make you barren. But it will still strike terror in your enemies and make them to submit to you.
The same can be said about the planetary talisman of the Sun: its a double edged sword.
