An Amulet is an object which has intrinsic power to give protection to its wearer, whereas a Talisman is specifically made to achieve a particular purpose. Amulets give protection by absorbing negative energies, while Talismans work by generating a positive force to achieve their objective. Both work like self charging solar batteries and are constructed in a way which links them with the appropriate planetary force concerned for the intention. Amulets and Talismans have been worn by people of almost every culture right up to the present. Even today millions of people throughout the world who claim to have no time for all this Magickal nonsense happily wear their crucifix or St. Christopher or Star of David - all of which are types of Amulets worn for Magickal protection.
