Here's a little experiment you can all make, if you're doubtful of the existence of spirits. Look up a planetary hours calculator online and seek the hours for this following Thursday. Select any hour of Jupiter of day or night. Look up the second pentacle of Jupiter online and draw it on a clean piece of paper during said day and hour - 3 or 4 inches wide is enough.

Here's the images of the pentacles I mentioned. Feel free to search for more clear ones: https://www.themysticdreamacademy.com/seals-of-solomon/
I looked up the websites you linked to, and found the background information and the imagery very thought provoking. According to the website of planetary hours, the hours are based on Chaldean knowledge. Without getting into how authentic these designations may or not be, how did the Chaldeans, or any other ancient magical organization, develop their system? It was their version of science, I assume. By what processes did they construct their schedule and assign deities to these hours?
And the same for the pentacles. Who created them? Using what criteria? Are the signs and letters written in a particular order? What do they stand for? Why were those symbols used? Who first created the symbols? The letters are Hebrew; I know that kanji are supposed to be written in a very specific way, with the pen strokes done in a particular order. Is Hebrew supposed to be written in the same way, each stroke done in a particular order?
I always wonder about the construction/invention of alphabets, too (as opposed to heiroglyphics, tho' those are amazing, too). The invention of written language is really awe inspiring IMO. Because Semetic languages are written right to left, I wonder if left handed people were instrumental in creating the alphabets. (It is easier for left handed people to write right to left, and, according to some studies, there is a correlation between being left handed and having a talent for languages.)
Anyway, thanks for sharing this information, Alex Scaraoschi. Mulling over the origins of symbols and ways of thinking about the world is endlessly fascinating for me.

The Chaldeans assigned the hours based on the movements of the seven classical planets (Sun and Moon included) through the heavens, with the Moon being the fastest and Saturn being the slowest to transit through the zodiac chart. The order is Saturn-Jupiter-Mars-Sun-Venus-Mercury-Moon. Saturn is the furthest planet and it is considered to be closest to the firmament of fixed stars, which is the barrier between the creator and creation, so therefore the order starts from Saturn and follows through the rest of the planets until it gets to the Moon which is closest to us here on Earth. Earth is considered to represent the physical realm in the whole scheme of heavens, but this is a whole other discussion.

I am not sure of what pentacles you are referring to, as my class on talismans does not address pentacles from grimoires - i.e. the Key of Solomon. Those pentacles from the grimoires contain geomantic symbols attributed to planets, along with certain Psalm verses. The geomantic symbols are closest to our physical realm, hence their name which assigns them as being earthly, and their role is to help manifest the energies of the pentacles. The Psalm verses are there to activate the talismans. Again, this is a whole other discussion.

I know very little of linguistics and alphabets, but the grimoire system was based on Catholic mass with ancient Greek and Hebrew influences, so the grimoires adopted the Hebrew alphabet. Moreover, Kabbalists from the MIddle Ages also contributed greatly to this system, so Hebrew was a natural alphabet to use in the construction of implements and pentacles because of the complexity of each letter and so forth.

Thank you, Alex Scaraoschi, for the explanations. I find this information really fascinating; I see it in relation to culture, and belief systems, and how those influence the creation and interpretation of symbols.
The pentacles I referred to are the ones from the website you linked to. Your explanations answered many of my questions regarding them.

I am still not sure what you are talking about. Am I to understand you have bought the class? If so, please email me at [email protected] and we'll discuss it there. Thank you
