Invite the bright protection of the heavens into your sacred circle with this mystically enchanting HEAVENLY PROTECTION Witch's Altar Ladder and/or Handfasting Cord. Handcrafted under the waxing crescent Moon 5% full, as the heavens wax toward the peak of the 2010 Perseids meteor shower and light show of falling stars August 12-13, during the planetary hour of the Moon, HEAVENLY PROTECTION is made with turquoise-light blue sapphire metallic ribbon, dark Blue Rainbow yarn, handmade Spruce Silk Sari ribbon, a silver Celtic Shield Knot charm, a silver Celtic Spiral charm, 5 dark wood beads and 14 knots.
Five is the number of the pentagram, known by mystics as the pentalpha, a symbol of Goddess. Interlaced five times, pentalpha is considered to be the birth-letter of the entire cosmos and womb of the earth.
The Celtic Shield Knot symbolizes endlessness and eternity, the inner temple and journey of the soul, the four corners of the earth, the four seasons, and the four guardian archangels of the heavens (Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel).
The Celtic Spiral represents radiant ethereal energy, birth, wholistic growth and evolution, expansion of consciousness, initiation, direction and development, balance, centering, connection and union with cosmic and divine energy.
Blue is the color of the heavenly throne.
At sundown this upcoming Thursday (August 12), the 2010 Perseids meteor shower peaks with Saturn (ר), Venus (כ), Mars (ג) and the setting crescent Moon (ב) coming together in the western twilight in tight conjunction, fitting within a circle about 10 degrees in diameter. The magical Hebrew letters of the heavenly bodies coming into conjunction come together to create the two by two magical roots רך גב meaning, "gentle support and protection."
Fourteen is the gematria (numerology) of the magical Hebrew word ובו meaning "and be in it" (the protection of the heavens).
Let heaven's protection shower down upon the earth and upon us, and let us be safe within it. So mote it be! אמן
Measures 36 (לו) inches and comes beautifully packaged.
