ORDER A ALKAID MIRROR
I have just TWO left of the acid etched mirrors of the fixed star Alkaid, Cauda Ursae Majoris the tail of the Great Bear or Big Dipper for spiritual and physical protection. The reflective qualities of mirrors makes them excellent for protective magic as they bounce back evil magic on the sender!
We also have silver Alkaid Talismans.
Hermes on the 15 fixed stars says that the fixed star Alkaid
"...is strong against incantations and against assassins and gives security from them, and if with this is placed the tooth of a wolf it protects also from robbers and thieves."
Hermes on the 15 Fixed Stars.
The Renaissance mage, Cornelius Agrippa says,
"Under the tail of Ursa Major they made the image of a pensive Man, or of a Bull, or the Figure of a Calf; it availeth against incantations, and maketh him who carrieth it secure in his travels: "
Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Bk II, ch 47.
The Renaissance mage Cornelius Agrippa specifically mentions mirrors as appropriate for astrological talismans.
"So great is the extent, power and efficacy of the Celestiall bodies, that not only naturall things, but also artificiall when they are rightly exposed to those above, do presently suffer by that most potent agent, and obtain a wondefull life...Images, Seals, Rings, Glasses, and some other Instruments, being opportunely framed under a certain constellation, some Celestiall Illustration may be taken, and some wonderfull thing may be received"
Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Bk II, ch 35 (JF translation).
The JF translation speaks of glasses, ie, looking glasses, while the Latin critical edition of Three Books of Occult Philosophy removes any residual doubt by referring to speculis, mirrors. So not only are these Venus magic mirror talismans authentically made, but they also contain authentic images and designs from Agrippa and the Picatrix, the key text of medieval and Renaissance astrological magic.
The image on the Alkaid mirror is the sigel of the fixed star Alkaid from Three Books of Occult Philosophy. The key, however, to the strength and magical power of these mirrors is that the designs were etched at a time precisely chosen to maximize the power of Alkaid You can see this chart below. This precise timing empowers the mirror with the strength, efficacy and magical charge of this powerful planet.
The elected time and date is 1:54 pmm CDT on May 31, 2009 for Iowa City, IA where the mirrors were etched. At this time Alkaid rises, and the Moon applies to conjoin Alkaid.
I am pleased to this unique, one of a kind Alkaid magic mirror. The mirror is standard silver backed, 3 inches by 3 inches with a beveled edge and comes with a Nigel Jackson Alkaid color image and full consecration instructions This mirror/talisman is a wonderful example of the ancient art of astrological magic, authentically and beautifully made!
The Alkaid 3 inch by 3 inch beveled Mirrors for spiritual and physical protection is sold out as of May 1, 2010.
