The Fifth Pentacle of Mars.
“(…)it is terrible unto the Demons, and at its sight and aspect they will obey thee, for they cannot resist its presence.”- the Greater Key of Solomon the King.
I wear this little amulet all the time, and while it isn’t on the virgin parchment as described, I still consider it potent. And it looks cool.
Circular chart showing a modern set of Talismanic Geomantic Symbols.

The upper half shows the Diurnal Figures and the lower half the Nocturnal. The Arabic words in the center of the Circle, “Ilm-al Raml”, translates to the “Science of the Sands”.
“Geomancy is an Art of Divination, wherby the judgement may be rendred by lot, or Destiny, to every question of every thing whatsoever, but the Art hereof consisteth especially in certain points where of certain figures are deducted according to the reason or rule of equality of inequality, likenesse or unlikenesse,; which Figures are also reduced to the Coelestiall Figures, assuming their natures and proprieties, according to the course and forms of the Signes and Planets.” – Henry Cornelius Agrippa

A talisman an object, typically an inscribed ring or stone, that is thought to have magic powers and to bring good luck.
The stories of crystals go back to the very beginnings of recorded history and reveal a long tradition of seemingly magical artifacts used by kings, queens, bishops, popes, sultans, and ordinary folk to improve luck or prosperity, or to cure diseases.
The history of talismans and amulets, made by alchemists, priests, magicians, magi, shamans, and witches, goes back as far as we have records. George Kunz reports that Pliny wrote in the first century about some of their uses and that poems and epics of the third and fourth centuries paint a rich pattern of the uses of crystal based elixirs, potions, talismans, and amulets.
Albertus Magnus, writing in the thirteenth century, elaborated on the uses of herbs, plants, and minerals for both protection and health. All through history, curative, protective, and divination powers have been attributed to rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and virtually every other precious stone. The records of virtually all Western and Eastern civilizations provide extensive reports on the use of all kinds of crystal talismans for a seemingly inexhaustible list of needs.
Bells were another form of Talisman used in olden days, the traditional idea being that any great noise would terrify the Devil and all evil spirits, so that bells were attached to the heads of horses and to the playthings of children to protect them from harm; and were also hung in church towers to scare the ears of demons, whilst the Gargoyles struck terror to the eyes of the evil ones
A Badger’s Tooth sewn inside the right-hand pocket of the waistcoat is also a well-known Talisman for luck at cards.
Gold Nuggets are considered lucky charms for speculators in mines, and miners; and Leap Year Pennies should always be kept in the kitchen to bring unexpected windfalls to the house.
A four-leaf clover has always been considered a lucky talisman.
One leaf is for fame, And one leaf is for wealth, And one is for a faithful lover, And one to bring you glorious health, Are all in the four-leaved clover.
Gemstones As Talismans
Crystals and gemstones have been used as amulets and talismans for thousands of years. It is believed that people wore earrings and necklaces before they started wearing clothes. During the Crusades, many soldiers carried talismanic stones carved with runic messages. They also carried bloodstones because this type of stone was associated with Mars, the god of war. The soldiers felt that bloodstones would make them brave in battle and protect them from harm.

Hi magickians & el chaotes, sharing one of my dearest magick circle creations so far. Initially, it is invented to be used with the Book of Stars grimoire but feel free to use it in any universe / elemental / etc kind of work.
I’m continuing my hunt for inspiration and magic circle creation, so expect more in the future.
3. In the first folder you will place images, texts, anything that you feel will power the amulet. so signs of power ,sigils, galaxy pics where ever you feel that the magical spark will come from. text files with things you find to be just pure energy and mp3s with songs you find pump you up are also encouraged..
The second folder will contain one thing, the program of the amulet, you are going to write out a .txt file and then switch the font over to wingdings or something to make sure its unreadable ( we want this to create a sigilized effect)
The final folder will contain the finale here is where we place the trappings of the amulet. like the first folder you can add anything you want just so long as it reflects the intention of the amulet pictures of certain gods inline with your intent, pictures, mp3s, poems, stories, pdfs of books about the intent (for love a Jane Austen novel, protection a pdf of an instructional book on self defense or spells of protection, for courage a biography of famous generals. There is no limit to this stuff.)
4. Place all the folders in a new folder titled “ FIAT_VOLUNTAS_MEA” this translates to “ my will be done” from Latin, it ties the amulet together to create a link between the folders and power the amulet.
5. Decorate and carry the amulet with you.
Note guess what is inside a usb key, a circuit board microchip. Guess what that is made of, silicon. Guess what else is silicate material, most of the planet including quartz, that fun thing in your radios, watches, smartphones computers and hung around a lot of your witchy necks or carried in your pockets. the idea of charging a usb key isn’t so different from charging crystal, except that I feel it’s more hands on (at least in the manner I’ve presented).
Upon a fine piece of parchment, ABRACADABRA was written as below:
On the reverse side, a psalm or prayer was written by the Pellar. For those who had no particular religious sentiments, the word “NALGAH” was written largely on the back (about an inch and a half by one inch).
The piece of parchment was folded like a valentine, sealed and suspended from the neck.
This specific charm was to protect against ill magic and supernatural ailments, specifically caused from witchcraft.
