Amulets are pieces of jewelry which are used for a purpose, each one holds a significant idea treasured by an individual and may be used as a reminder or tool. Sometimes it can represent a relationship such as a wedding ring represents the Union between people who are devoted to each other. Friendships, brotherhoods, circles, groves, churches, temples, families, societies; all these and more can harness a symbol crystalized as a ring or pendant and used as an amulet.
The Astro Blends take two symbols from the Zodiac and combine them to create something new. In the majority of most people’s chart, we are born under a Sun sign (the house of Sun) and a Moon Sign (the house the moon occupies) at the time of one’s birth. By calculating these two aspects One can get a more accurate idea of the chart rather than using the basic House of One’s Sun.
The Astro Blend many also be viewed as combining the two sun sign of a pair of friends or lovers, the Astro Blend may represent the friendship itself: the strength of two people’s attributes, strengths and how they support each other.
When I design and make these Astro Blend Amulets, I weave them together creating a new glyph to reflect the concepts of blended ideas. Because they are Amulets, I attempt to project the core meaning with the shape of the piece.
Blending the all Astrological symbols will take some time and I have only begun this project. When you go to my website you will only find a few that I have created so far. Should you want me to make a blend I haven’t created yet, I would only be too happy to do so for you.
If you wish to have something made that isn’t an Astro Blend, no problem. Simply go to my How to order Custom Page for details on how to make something special for you, your friends or loved ones, even your group or organization.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Blending the Zodiac houses can produce some interesting ideas. This project started with a request from a client. She wanted to combine the sun sign of herself and her friend.
The first of my Astro-Blends Combines :
Gemini ~Air~ May 21 – June 21 “I Think” This sign of the twins, nether positive nor negative yet the potential of both.
Pisces ~Water~ February 18/19 – 20/21 “I Believe” The flow of Mutable Water: sensitive; strong, deep emotions. Kind, sympathetic, receptive, and very intuitive.
This was originally designed as a one-of-a-kind, however because of the popularity of the piece, I have decided to offer this amulet as first of my Astro-blends. A sterling silver piece with the two signs of the zodiac woven together. The symbols are textured with “wind and water” to enhance the design.
When one looks to a chart, one discovers we are all a combination of these signs: our Sun sign can be very different from one’s Moon sign, so these Astro-Blends may actually be a more accurate representative our one’s own chart.
I am always trying out more designs, adding more pieces to my collection of Astrology Amulets. Check back often with me at my site Amulets by Merlin for the latest designs in Zodiac, Tarot, animal totems, money clips, brooches and more.

In her words:
“This piece is incredibly personal for me. It represents the beauty and duality in a harmonious twin sign. It further symbolizes the deep bonds I have with my husband and also my best friend who are Pisces. This gorgeous amulet is a tangible expression of my identity I now wear daily. Thank you Kirk!”
