In most cultures gold is associated with riches,
rulership and truth. We are still told that paper money is backed
(?) by gold. Here we see the analogy: gold forms the center of
the economy, the throne and crown of the ruler are made of gold,
the main day of the week is ruled by the golden Sun, and the Sun
is the center of our solar system. Gold has to do with the core,
the most important part of something.
In astrology the Sun and Leo represent your deepest I, the true
you, authority, pride and dignity; in medical astrology the Sun
rules the physical heart and the eyes as mirrors of the soul.

  • Make a talisman. A golden one will be very expensive, but
    you can make one of gold colored cardboard or write the symbols
    on it with gold paint.

    put a golden object during the 6 to 24 hours.
