I typically create amulets of an esoteric nature, most of the time specificity to enhance Spirit, to focus on the Sacred or to celebrate joy, beauty and other worth while endeavors. However from time to time I am requested to create an amulet for protection.
Recently I created one of the classic amulets to “Protect against Evil”, from the classic body of work: Greater Key of Solomon.
The Key of Solomon is a collection of composite symbols (or mandalas) which combine sacred writings and symbols, each dedicated to specific “Planets”. When originally developed the concept of a “Planet” included both the Moon and the Sun. Although attributed to the Hebrew King Solomon, the earliest found references to the Key is near the 12th to 14th centuries (depending on your historical reference).
A client requested the seal of “Protection against Evil”; the The Fourth Pentacle of the Moon.
From the Greater Key of Solomon:
“This defendeth thee from all evil sources, 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.”
The image is that of a hand emerging from a cloud and pointing to The Divine Name Eheieh Asher Eheieh, and the Names of the Angels Yahel and Sophiel.
Around the edge of the disk is written in Latin :
“Let them be confounded who persecute me, and let me not be confounded; let them fear, and not I.”
I did not make a mold for reproduction, and for this kind of work it really shouldn’t. Making each one by hand enhances the purpose and intent of the piece as well as calibrating the amulet for the person for whom it is intended.
