Solomonic Seal: The Lunar Lock & Key
The planetary pentacles of Solomon are a collection of Hebrew magical amulets. About the first lunar pentacle, the Lock & Key, the early renaissance grimoire, the Key of Solomon, says, “This and the following serve to call forth and invoke the Spirits of the Moon; and it further serveth to open doors, in whatever way they may be fastened.”
In this workshop, you’ll learn to make this pentacle and use it to open the doors of magical initiation.
