Taurus Elixir Rite for 2022

Here is the video of the Taurus Elixir Rite. The donation link is here.

The sign Taurus is attributed to the Hierophant card in the Tarot, and to "the secret of physical strength" in Liber 777. This power corresponds to vitality, health, healing, and so forth. In addition, intents corresponding to any quality attributed to Taurus by astrologers will also work, whether they are related to physical strength or not.

With zodiacal operations, you've previously mentioned that you want to avoid the final aspect being to Mars or Saturn, unless it's a positive aspect and you're doing an operation for that specific planet. Does that carry over to zodiacal operations? An Aries spell working with a Mars conjunction final aspect, okay because Mars rules Aries?

What's the strength of the effect the current sign has on a working? Would a Venus evocation during Aries be debilitated enough to change timing. Or is it that signs only really matter enough to affect a lot of the working's strength during zodiacal operations.

I feel like if I take too much of this into account I'll get less magick done due to only doing magick at the "right time". Does performing a spell to get something during a waning moon make it less powerful, or is that something that only really becomes significant with elemental evocations due to being sublunar?

I know final aspect, chart victor, day and hour timing are the main ones for gauging strength of a working. I'm guessing other variants might affect how a result expresses itself or it depends on the type of working.

I have not experimented with that myself, but it makes sense that it could be the case. I think if I were doing an Aries operation and had a positive final aspect with Mars I would go ahead.

It's very important to understand that much of this has to do with choosing the best possible time, not that nothing works if any of the timing is suboptimal. Your timing is always going to be suboptimal to some degree - that is, less than perfect - and you use these tools to pick the best time you can in the interval during which you want to do the spell.

You absolutely can do a Venus operation when the Sun is in Aries. The Sun is just one factor of many, as per the chart victor calculation. You probably want to avoid a Venus operation with a Mars chart victor, but you should be able to find a time with at least a neutral chart victor by changing the time of day, since ascendant, day/hour, and house placement all figure in to the calculation.

The waxing or waning Moon figures in to the chart victor as well, in the form of prenatal lunation. When the Moon is waxing, the prenatal lunation was a new Moon in the same sign as the Sun. When the Moon is waning, the prenatal lunation was a full Moon opposite the Sun. You allocate the points accordingly, and I actually think that this mechanism is why the grimoires talk about waxing and waning Moons as significant. I think that's true of elemental work too, because I'm of the opinion that days/hours/phases as remnants of the chart victor system - and if you use the full system, you get a more accurate result and can compensate for some of those factors.

But it's important enough to restate - magick done at "bad times" can still work. Folks who do "inituitive magick" and pay no attention to this stuff still get results. I paid no attention to it for years and got good results. I just can optimize my results by paying better attention to it. So always do the magick - just figure out when you need to do the spell, and work out the best time within that window to do it.

Good advice, thank you. Sometimes I get analysis paralysis, but the best way forward is to do it and see what happens. I forget that sometimes though.

I'm guessing that using the same set of spirits to charge two different talismans in separate workings hasn't shown a decline in power or probability shifts, in your experience.

Scott Stenwick said...

Right. Each time the spirits empower a talisman, they empower it with whatever their level of strength is under the conditions of the operation. A new operation gives you a new instance of the spirit or spirits. If you do it in the same operation, you have one instance divided between two talismans. But with separate operations, the relationship is one instance to one talisman.
