The Talisman of Mercury

Mercury was considered to be the third of the seven fabled planets of the ancients. The influence of Mercury is said to enliven the brain, the nervous system and breathing.

This talisman consists of the third and fourth pentacles of Mercury which are said to:

Invoke all spirits subject to Mercury.
Acquire understanding and knowledge of all things.
Aid in finding and penetrating hidden treasures.
Give a fine memory, skill in writing, artistic and scientific ability.
Enhance psychic communication.
Convey personal magnetism.
Help gain the impossible.
Bring success in business.
Make one eloquent.
Open all doors to secret knowledge.
Cause all wishes to be granted.
Inspire writers and remove writer's block.
The one talisman for writer's, poets or artists.

The priests, rabbis, and mystics of the ancient world believed that the "planets" had immense powers over the emotions, character, and physical attributes of mankind as well as the spirit world.

The Ancients knew of seven "planets": the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. They believed that these magical symbols channeled the powers of the planets and then commanded the spirits of each planet to obey.

Sorry I haven't posted for so long. I had some serious health issues to work on.
