Focusing on the chthonic aspect of Mercury, this amulet is designed to work within the sphere of transformation between life and death. A divine messenger and psychopomp to mankind, Mercury expedites all ritual workings. While it works within the sphere of necromancy, this amulet is not limited to such endeavors. Swift and light, Mercury guides the souls of humans into the underworld on the path usually associated with Persephone. Although Mercury goes by many names, the connection between Hermes and Thoth are especially relevant with this amulet.
For those who function within the realms of medicine, funerary work, intellectual pursuits, merchandise and business (especially overseas) and travel – this amulet will be very helpful towards your goals. Also works very well when blessing mail, ensuring it makes a safe and swift journey!
Mercury is also central to the mysteries of Alchemy. The fluids of the sex, spine and brain are ruled over by Mercury. Impulses between the lower and higher portions of the body and mind are enhanced with this amulet. Here, we see that the messenger of the gods is also a messenger between the higher and lower self as depicted on the Tree of Life. The mysteries of the caduceus reside in the nervous system of the human body. Hence the spiritual, emotional and intellectual center is positively effected.
