Second of Venus: The Morning Star’s Diplomat

From the Key of Solomon: “These Pentacles are also proper for obtaining grace and honour, and for all things which belong unto Venus, and for accomplishing all thy desires herein.”

Sometimes aggression and burning magnificence are not the ideal qualities for solving a problem. Often, pure charm, diplomacy and a blanketing energy of comfort and pleasantness are what’s truly required. The difference between commanding and coaxing is as wide as a chasm and a truly discerning occultist knows that each has its place in the world. Sometimes you need to walk with the presence of a kingly hall and other times you’d rather carry with you the warmth and inviting welcome of a hearth and home.

The Second Pentacle of Venus is an often over-looked one due to its ambiguous claims to bring the general blessings of Venus. Here at Practical Occult, we’d like to shine a spotlight on this talisman to better inform our customers of its wonders. In fact, it is often this very quality that some people who haven’t yet sat with the lesser benefic planet struggle to encapsulate into their lives.

A delight for artists of any stripe, this particular item could be considered essential magic for anyone from the guitarist to the painter to the wordsmith. Consider the unparalleled draw of a poets recitation or a truly inspired musical performance. These, too, are blessings of Venus. For the creative client with artistic hobbies or pursuits, the use of this amulet should be obvious. Enhancing one’s creativity or grasp of their art is worth the world to any who have truly fallen in love with these things and it is that very quality, the act of falling in love with art, that this pentacle helps to increase and expand.

Smoothing out interactions with the air of familiarity, receptiveness and entertainment is another benefit of this Venusian offering. A glamour so subtle but so complete that people find themselves fast friends with the owner of the Second of Venus is often described and desires. Especially in the wake of years of isolation and lockdowns, magic to grease the wheels of making new friends or meeting interesting people is a welcome kindness the discerning customer can bring into their lives with this purchase.

Social workers needing an air of calm in their jobs, public speakers or motivational coaches needing to break through a tough crowd without actually breaking anything and teachers, content-creators and anything in between often cherish this copper wonder rolling out the red carpet for them as they walk through the world. For those wanting to buy a pocketful of ease, look no farther than the Second Pentacle of Venus.
