Rune Against Ambushes and Treachery
A rune against ambushes and treachery, to be used on Tuesday under Mars. Stitched in black and blood red, a color befitting the planet of Mars. Perfect addition to any home altar.
According to the circa 15th Century grimoire, The Veritable Key of Solomon, "Charlemagne received this Pentacle in the presence of Pope Leon, along with the little mystical book of the Enchiridion, which is completely composed of Prayers against all sorts of perils, which could happen during the course of human existence."
Charlemagne was King of France in the early middle ages, and he successfully tromped through parts of Italy and Germany, "uniting" them, by which he, of course, meant conquering and ruling, first as King, and later as Emperor. This is a little pentacle that packs a punch.
