What's the meaning of this talisman? Would it be useful for protection? I'm thinking of getting it on a wall for that purpose. I want my space insulated against supernatural threat, so any advice on that would also be good.
If it matters, I tend to be of the (chaos magic?) position that any magical working is charged by belief, so if you're convinced it will work, it probably will. That in mind, I tend to favour Abrahamic, Neo-Pagan, Chinese and Japanese stuff, as well as sigils and so on.
It's only as powerful as you make it.
Hell, if you could immerse yourself in a picture of your mom the same way and associate it with protection, you could use that.
So if you think some squiggly lines and some names will do that, go for it.
It's a sigil of Geburah or the sphere of Mars. It is for victory against enemies in violent conflict. Yes it will help protect you, but might make you a hotheaded confrontational prick.
I would personally recommend using a talisman from the sphere of Binah or Saturn if you want protection from spiritual enemies i.e. evil spirits, ghosts. Also use a Solar/Tiphareth talisman to offset the melancholy that Saturn could cause.
The Key of Solomon ought to be your guide if you want to use this technique.
This is just the kind of info I was hoping for, so thanks. Pretty cool; I'm pretty hot-blooded myself so we would likely get along. In any case, regarding sigils I will definitely look up Binah for the walls. I do think I have the Key of Solomon kicking about somewhere, but haven't looked at it yet.
