☿ ♊ Knight of Swords ♊ ☿ Lavender & Lemongrass
This is an all-natural soy wax candle in an 8-ounce travel tin, which comes with a lid. Each hand-poured ritual candle is made using principles of eclectic green magick, astrology, divination, and aromatherapy. It is made with pure essential oils and natural wicks that are lead and zinc free.
This candle is formulated to the Knight of Swords in the Tarot, the Zodiacal Sign of Gemini, and ruled by the planet Mercury. The color is a light seafoam green and it gives the strong scent of a delicious Lavender and Lemongrass essential oil blend. From Liber T (1888):
A WINGED Warrior with crowned Winged Helmet, mounted upon a brown steed. His general equipment is as that of the Knight of Wands, but he wears as a crest a winged six-pointed star, similar to those represented on the heads of Castor and Pollux the Dioscuri, the twins Gemini (a part of which constellation is included in his rule). He holds a drawn sword with the sigil of his scale upon its pommel. Beneath his horse’s feet are dark-driving stratus clouds.
He is active, clever, subtle, fierce, delicate, courageous, skilful, but inclined to domineer. Also to overvalue small things, unless well dignified.
If ill dignified, deceitful, tyrannical and crafty.
The electional chart for this candle series has the third decan of Virgo on the Ascendant. This is useful for keeping an eye on the overall picture and end equation while honing in on the finer details of your work.
Whether you’re attending to a craft or intellectual undertaking, this blend will bring an awareness of your attachments and call you to assess what truly matters as you go. This is useful in staying the course and not allowing yourself to get too scattered while entertaining multiple options and possibilities.
Made while Mercury was in the middle decan of Gemini, the candle holds a mentality of “Both / And” rather than “Either / Or,” and it will encourage you to resolve apparent contradictions and embrace multiplicity. You may find yourself creating a new, third “hybrid” option that is both exciting and innovative.
