Talisman for Peace and Recognition
On the morning of May 23 2023, Moon coming into to contact Venus in Cancer and together, aligning to the fixed star Sirius. This is a powerful alignment that carries magical significance.
In astrology, the Moon represents our emotions and inner world, while Venus represents love, beauty, and harmony. Cancer is a home of the Moon, sensitive and nurturing sign that is associated with the home and family. Sirius, the brightest star and quite close to the Earth, is believed to hold significant spiritual energy.
Together, this alignment is believed to bring about a sense of peace and harmony in our personal lives and relationships. It is a time to focus on nurturing our emotional well-being and strengthening our connections with loved ones. This alignment is also associated with the gemstone beryl, which is believed to promote communication and self-expression.
In the realm of mysticism, this alignment is seen as an opportunity to seek the favor of supernatural entities. By embracing practices that promote peace and harmony, we can navigate our lives with greater ease and grace. This alignment is a reminder to focus on our emotional health and to seek greater understanding and concordance in our relationships with others.

Both Sirius and Venus are associated with the gemstone beryl, and Sirius's color is sea-green. Therefore, I have chosen Aquamarine, which is a blue-green variety of beryl. Aquamarine is a popular gemstone that is prized for its beautiful color and excellent clarity.
There are different types of gemstone cuts, such as the cabochon cut, which features a smooth, rounded surface without any facets. On the other hand, the rose cut has a flat bottom and a faceted top with a dome-shaped profile.
In addition to its beauty, the Aquamarine is believed to have healing properties. It is said to promote calmness, clarity, and emotional balance. It is also believed to encourage communication and self-expression.
The 8mm rose-cut Aquamarine is set in a gallery bezel, giving it a feminine touch. Paired with the filigree Moon, crafted with Sterling Silver and Fine Silver, it creates a simple and versatile design that's perfect for everyday wear. The piece serves as a reminder of peace and harmony, promotes open communication, and protects the wearer's emotional well-being.
