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 dream magic mirror talismans authentically made, but they also contain authentic images and designs from Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy.
The main image on the dream mirror was created by the
artist/mage Nigel Jackson from the image
description in Three Books of Occult Philosophy,
"And let there be made an image of dreams, which being put under the head of him that sleeps, makes him dream true dreams concerning any thing that he hath formerly deliberated of; and let the figure of that be the figure of a man sleeping in the bosome of an Angel, which thou shall make...in Libra ascending, Venus being received from Mercury in Gemini in the ninth house, by writting upon it the Angel of Venus.
Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Bk II, ch 50.
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 Venus in the 9th house of dreams and visions. You can see this chart below. This precise timing empowers the mirror with the strength, efficacy and magical charge of Venus and Mercury as well as the dream and visionary quality of the 9th house.
The Dream mirrors were created on 11 am CDT, July 28, 2017 in Iowa City, Iowa, with Libra rising, Venus in the 9th house, applying to Mercury in Virgo with reception. The mirrors were acid etched with a special dream mirror image created by Nigel Jackson. Each mirror comes with an easel, color dream image and consecration instructions.
You can see an example of what the Dream Mirrors look like above. The Dream Mirror is a 3 inch by 3 inch square beveled edge mirror. The example was photographed against the sky and a purple background, but the Mirror is a standard, clear, silvered mirror.
Each mirror was etched by Christopher Warnock, the leading traditional astrological magician. These mirrors are not machine made or stamped out in a factory! Because they are handmade the mirrors all have imperfections and flaws which do not affect their magical efficacy.
The 3 x 3 inch acid etched Dream Mirrors for lucid and prophetic dreams are sold out as of September 21, 2018.
Please note that while many clients are happy with their talismans and mirrors, check out the talisman testimonials, some are not and I cannot guarantee exactly what the effects will be for any individual client. Because of this and because I cannot resell talismans, there are no refunds, exchanges or returns on talismans including mirrors.
