I made that into a clay pendant when I was 18 because my book of magical amulets had it. You can rearrange the letters into a cross of "A PATERNOSTER O". It's thought that one possible translation of it is "Sator the reaper sows the seeds with care".

How the fuck did I remember all of that from 30 years ago.

Sometimes my memory freaks me out.

@space_cadet
another way i found was “sator (saturn) silently keeps working the seasons

@space_cadet paternoster strikes me as a stretch- it imagines secret christians passing messages around centuries before jesus was born

@space_cadet the other way to interpret “sator” is “seeder/tiller/farmee” - the proto indo european root is “to fill”

@zens
Cool, well anyway FYI it makes a sexy enigmatic clay pendant

Chicks dig it

Especially with a bit of silver antiquing glaze

And braided round black leather cord

It's a conversation starter at parties

Just look for the goth witchy looking babes drinking red wine from goblets

Complement them on their pentagram tattoos and their tiny glass phial earrings with coloured liquids inside

They will ask you about your pendant and the rest is up to you

Well that was my theory anyway...

@zens this my new spell, gonna say it in a latin accent heh
