From the Key of Solomon: “It serveth to invoke those Spirits who can transport thee from one place unto another, over a long distance and in short time.”
With the roads of the world now beginning to fold open to travelers, how can the discerning customers of Practical Occult be certain to get the best out of this aspect of life? As with everything else, there is a pentacle for just this need!
As a Solar pentacle, the Fifth of Sol holds within it a crown. This emblem of dominion provides fleetness, safety, convenience and more in crossing distance. This matters to the owner of such a thing especially in these times. Roads may be open but, after a year plus of isolation and uncertainty, what is more needed than a little boost of authority and the promise of certainty in one’s movements, so long restricted that for many it seems a lifetime ago? In light of this, and never missing the chance to use a questionable pun, the Solar pride of a ruler traversing a kingdom is just the ticket!
The rays of the Sun alert obstacles in your way to scatter. This pentacle is known to bring uncanny good fortune in airports, get one places just ahead of the rush and lines that might make one feel claustrophobic and cheated after finally loosing themselves upon the world again, to dodge traffic and red tape adeptly and, interestingly enough, to call on the right people at the right time to shepherd the owner down special paths to arrive at their destination sooner.
Further, the especially discerning individual may take this time to pair this pentacle with any other that creates a strong glamour from the soft, creative allure of the Second of Venus to the Magnificence of the Third of Sol (creating an all-solar situation) in order to well-and-truly travel enveloped in a cloak of grandiosity. What better way to emerge on the world stage again than with everything shining?
In other practical terms, this pentacle and its spirits can be petitioned directly to aid in road opening spells for the owner and others. Entirely new travel opportunities and interesting meetings can be made manifest with the aid of the retinue behind this amulet. It can also be used, with some creative spellcraft, to send the name or reputation of the owner into the world to help news of a new business, product or service span vast distances. It is not only bodies that travel but ideas as well.
It genuinely behooves the bold to avail themselves of this offering. Be sure to be the first through the gates of open roads into the new world.
What wonders await you? This will help you find out!
