NOTE: This second Hekate pendant also contains a bronze bead and links Hekate to ancient Jewish magic and King Solomon.
This incredible HEKATE Liminal Rites talisman pendant contains genuine Wolfsbane (Aconitum napellus), Black Nightshade (Solanum nigrum), 3 whole Saffron stamens, 1 whole Blackthorn berry, Garlic, powdered Oak, a black Onyx gemstone chip, a sterling silver Key charm and a Bronze bead - all sacred to Hekate.
The glass vial pendant stands approximately 2 and 1/8 inches tall (from the bottom of the vial to the top of the round glass stopper). Adorned with a pewter Triple Crescent Moon Witch's Claw charm (approx 1 3/4" in diameter) and black satiny ribbon, the talisman hangs on an 18-20 inch adjustable black ribbon necklace made of 1 strand of 7mm black organza ribbon, 3 strands of 1mm black cotton cord and a lobster clasp closure.
Wolfsbane is a powerful root used for protection and invisibility. Also used for visionary work, uncrossing and crossing magic, underworld journeying, shamanic self initiation, and as a altar guardian.
When acquiring Wolfsbane (Aconite), ALWAYS know the species you are getting so that you can have some idea of how toxic the one you are getting is. Some species are less toxic than others (for example, those used in flying ointments and anointing oils should only be of a non-toxic variety). Information on the species of Wolfsbane (Aconitum napellus) used in this talisman can be found here - http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/a/aconi007.html.
Black Nightshade (a less toxic Nightshade than Belladonna or Deadly Nightshade but still poisonous) mediates prophecy and divination conjured through the power of Hekate (who is also known by Chaldean Oracles as the Cosmic Soul). A classic Samhain plant, Black Nightshade relates to the mysteries of the Otherworld. Used in liminal rites and lunar magic. Information on the species of Black Nightshade (Solanum nigrum) used in this talisman can be found here - http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/n/nighbl04.html.
In the Orphic Hymn to Hekate, Hekate is described as "the Saffron-cloaked Goddess of the Heavens." A herb in Hekate's own garden, Saffron powerfully raises the wind and strengthens psychic power with the force of the triple Goddess who stands at the Crossroads between life, death and rebirth.
Blackthorn connects to the Crone and Dark Power of Hekate as Witch of the Dark Moon and Queen of the Night.
Garlic is one of the offerings to Hekate at the Deipnon (Hekate Supper) held at the end of the lunar month during the dark phase of the moon (and before the sliver of the New Moon has been sighted).
An Oak tree stands in the center of Hekate's garden in Orphic Argonautica. Hekate is she who is crowned with oak-leaves.
Black Onyx is a projective protective stone of the Dark Goddess able quell psychic instability in the spellcaster and deflect psychic attack. Hekate is often found in ancient texts and on ancient amulets linked with Solomon and Hebrew Divine Names (particularly אדני Adonai and צבאות Tzevahot).
Sacred bronze is associated with Hekate's power in the Underworld. A bronze triple Hekate amulet, with King Solomon found on the obverse side performing hygromanteia (demon summoning) found in Italy at Ostia, links Hekate to Jewish magic. Hekate titles are also often found linked with the names of Hebrew angels.
Significant to Hekate's role as gatekeeper and key-bearing Queen of the entire Cosmos, her key to the door of Sacred Knowledge in this talisman is sterling silver.
The outward pointing crescents of the Witch's Claw wards off baneful energy. Interwoven triple crescents symbolize the kinship and harmony of Witches in powerful link together - the bond of Witchblood connects, strengthens and protects us all.
*****WARNING!!! - Some contents of this talisman are EXTREMELY POISONOUS and MAY BE LETHAL if ingested. DO NOT EAT, BURN or DIRECTLY HANDLE the contents of this talisman.*****
This incredibly powerful HEKATE talisman reminds us to always be mindful of the power we possess.
With power comes responsibility - The variety of Wolfsbane in this talisman is **EXTREMELY POISONOUS**. The glass vial is thoroughly sealed with black wax. If the glass breaks or the vial comes apart, **do not handle the contents with your bare hands** - USE GLOVES to return pieces of the botanical to the vial, to clean up the pieces and/or to dispose of them. Do not leave the talisman where children or unsuspecting adults may tamper with it. Use caution when handling, storing or disposing of vial contents. If you would like me to seal it with professional strength wine bottle sealing wax, write a note to me with purchase and I will happily add the heavy duty sealing wax to the seal at no extra charge. I used regular sealing wax only to make it easier to open the vial without breaking it should you want to use the contents for spellwork.
Comes in a black organza bag and beautifully packaged.
