The carving of the Heptad is based upon 7 ancient planets: Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sol, Venus, Mercury, Luna. The ancient practitioners used to rely heavily upon these planets in their Workings & those today who do so, swear by this method. Followed painstakingly & requiring a great deal of study, this is Astrology, at some of its most precise practice. The Heptad is usually listed in the above order which happens to be from the slowest to the fastest planet. On this Candle though, the Sorceress placed the planets in reverse order, to reflect the burning of the Candle. For example, Luna, who moves the quickest, will burn first. Dusted in correspondence as well as with Sacred Ash from all 7 of The Caravan's planetary Altars. Anointed with Empress Elixirs' Oil of Angelic Wings & Astral Oil. 100% Canadian beeswax, this is a 6" tube candle that is said to burn up to 6 hours. But we shall see, as things tend to defy the material world at the Caravan. ;) Burn to attune to the Heptad. And Listen; always Listen.
