DESCRIPTIONBy Ralph Eicher - This book seeks to act as a complete instructional guide for all spellcasters who wish to learn to make powerful and effective amulets with real magick.
The realms of magick, as we all know, center largely around
the active casting of spells. There are, of course, many
different types of spells, and many different and varied ways
to cast them. Some spells require casting only once to be
effective. Some spells, however, are intended by the
practitioner to be lasting, if not permanent. For these spells,
it can be extremely useful to bind magickal energy to a
physical object, which then becomes a real and lasting link
between the practitioner and the energy of his or her spell.
Such, in very simple terms, is the basis of amulet and
Amulets and talismans are powerful magickal objects
created by practitioners of the esoteric arts for specific
purposes. They can provide protection, enhance health,
attract prosperity, or any other magickal task to which they
are assigned. They may be as simple as a few symbols
quickly jotted onto a piece of paper and stuffed into a
pocket, or as complex as a fully inscribed metal amulet
dotted with crystals. Regardless of the form they take, their
basic purpose is the same: to contain and sustain the energy
of a practitioner's spell. From this starting point, their
applications are virtually limitless.
This book will provide the practitioner with many symbols
that are commonly employed on amulets and talismans, as
well as instructions on how to create different types of them.
The goal of this book is to act as a complete instructive on
the creation of these magickal objects, giving spellcasters
the necessary information and knowledge needed to begin
Amulets VS. Talismans: What is theDifference?
The difference between these two categories of magickal
objects is purely linguistic in nature. While the two are
commonly grouped separately, they are, fundamentally, the
With regards to this differentiation, it can simply be said
that the word amulet applies most properly to any object
that is intended to protect its possessor from danger, harm,
or bad luck. Talismans, on the other hand, are those objects
which attract something positive, such as good luck, health,
or wealth. Both, however, operate on the same principle:
they both act as physical repositories of the magickal energy
you have placed into them in casting a spell over them. As
time passes, they continue to diffuse this energy in
accordance with the requirements on the spell you have cast
on them. In this sense, you can think of them like energetic
Because this difference is so trivial, we will not, in the
context of the remainder of this book, differentiate between
the two, as doing so would only serve to add a layer of
complexity that is not required for the practitioner of magick.
Therefore, from this point forward, the word amulet shall
be employed in reference to all magickal objects intended to
contain the energy of a spell over a long period of time.
How Long Can Amulets Last?
Because amulets are fueled by the energy that a spellcaster
puts into them when creating them, their effect is not
indefinite. The length of time that a given amulet will remain
potent is dependent upon two factors: the energetic
requirements of the spell it is being used in, and the amount
of energy that is infused into it in the first place. For
example, a protection spell, being largely passive in nature,
will require much less energy use than a spell intended to
attract love, which is more active in nature. Therefore, an
attraction amulet will consume the energy infused into it
faster than a protection amulet would.
Of course, like any magickal object or spell, amulets can
easily be recharged after they have been created. In a later
section of this book, we will cover basic recharging, as well
as advanced amulet creation spellcraft techniques that will
make an amulet, for all intents and purposes, permanently
Common Symbols Useful in AmuletMagick
One of the key components of amulet magick is the use of
symbols. The use of magickal symbols can make an amulet
more powerful and effective in its purpose. Therefore, it is
important for our goals here to discuss many of the most
common magickal symbols that practitioners may use to
create their first amulets. These symbols are drawn from a
multitude of sources across the world, and it is up to the
individual practitioner to decide what symbols best suit his
or her needs.
Runes, an ancient alphabet from the far north of Europe
used to write Norse, Old Swedish, and other languages of
the region, have been a favorite of those who practice
magick for centuries. The runes you see here are from the
Elder Futhark, the oldest rune alphabet system.
is a universal protection symbol, as well as a symbol useful
in the projection of magickal power. Far from simply being a
symbol of protection from physical threats, Inguz can act to
protect against bad luck, ill intent from others, and other
such normal adversities. In this capacity, it can be used to
protect health and prosperity, as well as ward off physical
Tiwaz is a rune that represents victory, success, honor, and
glory. This rune serves well in any spell that is intended to
bring wealth or to increase your chances of success in a
given venture. Because of this, it is most frequently
employed in spells that are cast to improve careers or to
bring victory in competition.
Algiz is another protective rune, though slightly different in
its magickal uses from Inguz. Algiz is meant as a spiritual
protection. Commonly incorporated into spells that are
meant to ward off evil, black magick, or the ill will of others,
Algiz is one of the best runes for protection against
The rune Kenaz is used in spells meant to bring wisdom,
clarity, and understanding. It also represents change for the
better, and can be inscribed on amulets that are intended to
bring about favorable circumstances.
Uruz is one of my personal favorite runes. Representing
strength, power, and will, this rune can be employed in
practically any spell to focus your magickal energies and
increase that spell's chances of success. Inscribed on any
amulet meant to actively bring about a certain result, this
rune will lend power to that amulet.
Isa is a passive rune symbol that strengthens the
properties of all other runes around it. Isa is excellent to add
to an amulet when the other symbols on that amulet all have
similar meanings to each other. However, be aware that if
you engineer an amulet that has contradictory symbols on it,
the addition of the Isa rune will amplify these differences,
making your amulet very unlikely to work as it should.
The Berkano rune deals with matters of the heart, intimacy,
romance, and love. It can be used to bring about new love,
or to refresh old. It is also useful in any spell that has to do
with personal relationships, as it will bring clarity and
stability to them.
With regards to amulet magick, Perthro is the most powerful
rune. Symbolizing as it does magick, the occult, and that
which is hidden, the inclusion of the Perthro rune onto any
amulet will significantly increase its ability to act upon the
world. Used in conjunction with Uruz or Isa, this rune
becomes even more powerful. It is also useful in those spells
that are meant to draw upon psychic abilities.
Alchemical Planetary Symbols
Medieval alchemists employed a series of symbols to
represent the higher magickal properties of the elements with
which they dealt, named according to the celestial bodies
with which these elements were principally identified. In
time, these symbols became commonplace in the world of
magickal practice. Here, we will explore these symbols and
The symbol of Saturn is emblematic of the passage time,
longevity, and wisdom. This symbol, when applied to amulet
magick, will grant the amulet the power to bring duration to
whatever you may elect. For example, it can be used to
protect wealth by bringing duration to your time of
prosperity. This property may also be used in an amulet
intended to bring good health and long life, as this longevity
can also apply to yourself as well.
The alchemical symbol for Venus represents love, affection,
intimacy, and all romantic relationships. This symbol is also
representative of change in these matters, making it useful in
many love spells for healing emotional wounds. Because of
its close association of meaning, this symbol can be used in
conjunction with the Berkano rune to great effect.
This symbol of the Sun is concerned almost entirely with
wealth and worldly success. In a later section of sample
amulets, you will see this symbol form the basis of a
powerful amulet meant to bring wealth and prosperity.
The Mars symbol represents power, strength, combat, and
victory. It is e
