I’ll be discussing, as mentioned above, the 1st pentacle of Mars from the Greater Key of Solomon; the Order of the Pentacles.
My forecast (so divination) indicated that the result of placing the mentioned as a tattoo on my body, will make me more adept as a magician and more skilled overall, but the drawback (unsurprisingly) will be minor misfortune/accidents. See the tattoo (on my leg) here.
I have noticed all in terms of effects, with my astral senses increasing and me seeing on occasion the familiars of the spirits I work with, something that never happens, generally speaking. The drawbacks (unfortunately) too, with a tour I regularly take being fraught with accidents whereas it’s usually peaceful, as well as the car almost getting stuck in the mud on the ride home (took a detour that I thought would be quicker). All of these things happened within a week of my pentacle being etched on me, and are just a few examples.
For those that haven’t read/watched my other material on other pentacles, see below:
I started working with the “The Greater Key of Solomon – Order of the Pentacles” in the beginning of this year. My interest was mainly geared towards the first pentacles, the ones that are suited towards invoking the spirits attributed to the sphere that was mentioned. For people that do not know it, The Greater Key of Solomon – Order of the Pentacles is a grimoire or magical workbook that gives the seals and descriptions of pentacles to be made or fashioned that will serve to work with spirits in a certain manner, depending on the nature of the working.
I started in January 2017 and made use of the 1st Pentacle of Mars, the 1st of the Moon and the 5th of the Moon; The first one was supposed to work and serve as an improvement in invoking my Patron, My Lord Samael. Nothing wrong as the pentacle works just fine. I have seen things go better and noticed that the line of communication has improved.
The 1st Pentacle of the Moon was a gift to a spirit that I am working with and it has also served its purpose in the same way as described above. Plus the spirit showed himself to me which was great since he does not have a known general appearance and is short and straight to the point, a bit shy even. Now he is becoming more vocal and involved in my life.
Regarding the 5th Pentacle of the Moon, I pretty much saved the best for last; this Pentacle is said to give answers in sleep, so dream prophecy. I am not a dreamer and rarely dream; when I go to sleep it is lights out for me in my head and done. I will dream about something silly once in a year and know right away that it did not mean anything. But the kind of dreams that are vivid and jarring sometimes, shaking you up and making you feel like you did not rest well at all- now those are the ones that matter. The pentacle has done its work well also, since I have had these type of dreams over 5 times in the past 2 months, and my senses tell me in most cases who the dream-giver is. Most summoned entities give me a sign in this way, where this was not the case before. The only drawback is that the dream is coded and I have to go find out what it meant. I do not mind, but I felt like this needed pointing out.
