On the pictures you can see the 5th pentacle of the Moon and the 5th pentacle of Mars. They are from the Greater Key of Solomon and as such very powerful pentacles. Even while I was making them I sensed the energies from them. The Moon pentacle have had an immediate effect on my dream the first night I drew it. I would like those instruments to add these specific energies to tinctures I made. I consecrate those instruments of Art in the appropriate manner.
“The Second Pentacle of Mars.–This Pentacle serveth with great success against all kinds of diseases, if it be applied unto the afflicted part.
Editor’s Note.–The letter Hé, in the angles of the Hexagram. Within the same the Names IHVH, IHSHVH Yeheshuah (the mystic Hebrew Name for Joshua or Jesus, formed of the ordinary IHVH with the letter SH placed therein as emblematical of the Spirit), and Elohim. Around it is the sentence, John i. 4:–‘In Him was life, and the life was the light of man.’ This may be adduced as an argument of the greater antiquity of the first few mystical verses of the Gospel of St. John.”
“The Fifth Pentacle of the Moon.–It serveth to have answers in sleep. Its Angel Iachadiel serveth unto destruction and loss, as well as unto the destruction of enemies. Thou mayest also call upon him by Abdon and Dal against all Phantoms of the night, and to summon the souls of the departed from Hades.
Editor’s Note.–The Divine Names IHVH and Elohim, a mystical character of the Moon, and the Names of the Angels Iachadiel and Azarel. The versicle is from Psalm lxviii. 1:–‘Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered; let them also who hate Him flee before Him.”
The Fourth Pentacle of the Moon.–This defendeth thee from all evil sorceries, and from all injury unto soul or body. Its Angel, Sophiel, giveth the knowledge of the virtue of all herbs and stones; and unto whomsoever shall name him, he will procure the knowledge of all.
Editor’s Note.–The Divine Name Eheieh Asher Eheieh, and the Names of the Angels Yahel and Sophiel. The versicle is:–‘Let them be confounded who persecute me, and let me not be confounded; let them fear,and not I.’
The Fifth Pentacle of Jupiter. – This hath great power. It serveth for assured visions. Jacob being armed with this Pentacle beheld the ladder which reached unto heaven.
Editor’s Note.– The Hebrew letters within the Pentacle are taken from the five last words of the versicle which surrounds it, each of which contains five letters. These are, then, recombined so as to form certain Mystical Names. The versicle is taken from Ezekiel i. 1:– “As I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of Elohim.” In my opinion the versicle should only consist of the five last words thereof, when the anachronism of Jacob using a Pentacle with a sentence from Ezekiel will not longer exist.
magnificent replicas! what instruments did you use while creating these pentacles?
Gorgeous. I applaud your time and patience in making these.
