My expectations for this talisman were at once exceeded and entirely unmet. I found/continue to find that this piece is more interested in shepherding in the things I NEED than those I think I WANT. It feels like a collaborative relationship with a partner that brings their own ideas and perspectives to the process. All around an extraordinary piece - and absolutely beautiful!
I find this piece too intense to wear (this entire series hits my natural blockages/healing needs HARD) but I hope to be able to show it off in the future since it is also a gorgeous pendant.
The other offering forms I have interacted with feel much more pliable/flexible to my intentions for them; the talisman has its own (benefic) drive that is not very yielding. I am still understanding what the entire collaboration will produce, but it is clear and active partner in the process, and I am so excited to continue experiencing the unfolding!
chatty, soothing, dignified. the talisman but also this entire series carves a pathway to diplomatic excellence i am still unpacking but deeply grateful for. this is for personal peace but also communal. there’s something yet to be discovered here but altogether healing
I have an interesting Spica PofF conjunction in my 6th house of Libra. Suffice to say, my workplace experience since I've had the talisman has been if somewhat hectic, also effortless and effective in terms of problem solving and client/co-worker relations. <3
I am an introvert. My temperament is Cold. Social engagements and zoom meetings have a tendency to fray me, and it takes me a long time to recover myself. Recently, I have been wearing my VAD talisman when talking to people is required and pairing it with my Saturn in Capricorn talisman when work is involved or when I feel the need for stronger boundaries or greater endurance. The VAD brings a sweet softening and even, to my astonishment, an eagerness to be with people. I find myself saying just the right thing. I find myself being heard. I find myself, again with astonishment, recognized for my offerings. I find myself showing up, sweetly. And not being shredded in the process. What a gift.
