They say ‘you make your own luck’ – when you create a talisman this is literally true. Learn;
A talisman is a charm for a specific purpose, e.g. to attract love, find a new home etc. This is different from an ‘amulet’ which may be for general good luck. Examples of an amulet include a four-leaf clover, rabbit’s foot, silver penny and similar. If you believe in these, and they are associated in your mind with good things, then they can indeed bring good fortune. However, if you want to attract something specific, then you are well-advised to create your own talisman.
Firstly, you need to decide your purpose. Try to be exact about this. In the case of love, for example, what sort of love are you wanting? If you want strong passion, then you may need to include some of the correspondences associated with Mars (However, please avoid using the Tower, tarot card. This information has been given for the sake of completeness, but it represents the destructive side of Mars, and your talisman must always be positive)
If you are wanting to pass an exam, Mercury’s correspondences are the obvious choice, with maybe a little oomph from the Mars quarter. If you wish to develop your spirituality then Jupiter and/or the Moon are your choices, but if you lack discipline, then call in a little Saturn. Success of all types is brought by the Sun. You might choose to combine that with other themes to bring triumph in a specific area – Mercury study, Jupiter court case etc.
You can create a talisman using a circle of card, cut to the size you want. Choose the colour accordingly, stick or draw pictures, write words and attach crystals – you can be as creative as you like. When you have finished, anoint your completed talisman with an appropriate fragrance from the list, or leave overnight in a bowl of dried herbs. Carry your talisman with you whenever you need its good influences.
As an example, lets look at a talisman to attract new friends. This could be made from pink card, with a small piece of rose quartz attached. You might like to draw the symbol of Venus on the card, which is a circle with a cross underneath – and to symbolize friends there could be two or three Venuses with the arms of the crosses linked, as if they are holding hands. You could draw pictures of pink roses, intertwined, and anoint the talisman with a little oil of ylang-ylang, or leave overnight in a bowl of dried thyme.
When making any talisman, don’t worry too much. Just go with what feels right. If you are comfortable with your talisman and it enables you to believe in yourself, then it will bring you success.
Now you know how to make a talisman, by defining your intention and using correspondences to create something appropriate. This can be very empowering, but of course there are times when it may not feel enough, and you need advice from someone wise.
