You’re the One, Bastian.;)
The month of Elul is the completion of the lunar year. This month corresponds to the sign of Virgo, which is an earth sign and is ruled by Mercury. The sign of Virgo is connected to the practicality, working and serving others. People born in this month feel the need to achieve financial security through working, and also have a great need to serve society.
People under the sign of Virgo find success in community careers: as doctors, nurses, or any profession healing the body and the soul; as social workers, service technicians, bankers, accountants, and in professions of beauty and fashion.
The end of the lunar year expresses the Virgo’s need to check and criticize their actions, like a business man that reviews the year-end balance, profit and loss. That is how Virgos acquire their attribute of criticism.
It easier to criticize and see what is wrong with others, but much harder to do criticize oneself, and this is the real lesson Virgos should learn.
When is the correction of the Virgo complete? When they learn to love, honor and accept the other person as they are without criticism, judgment or trying to change them to their own criteria.
Once the Virgo achieves completely unconditional love, they have finished their correction.
Mercury in Hebrew is Kochav. Numerology value is Caf Vav = 26 = Yud Hei Vav Hei and Caf Bet = 22 = the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, which indicates that Mercury is a planet of communication.
Financially it is not an easy month. Many important change might happen, the need for new business ventures, different ones with new consciousness. International business connections can take place.
There is also a large incident of immigration in this month, where more people find the need to leave their homelands in order to go to new places, looking for their luck and to change their lives.
In personal relationships there are more international connections and meetings, which means there is more openness to go out of the family circle/tribe tradition to meet new and different people and nations.
There is a greater inclination to widen and enlarge the metaphysical vessel in order to better understand - through the kabbalistic understanding - the meaning of life, both in the personal and global realms.

AURYN is a mystical talisman in The Neverending Story. In the novel, AURYN is always spelled in capital letters and is revered by all Fantasicans, referred to as “The Gem” and “The Glory”. It is a symbol of its mistress, the Childlike Empress, who is also called “The Golden-Eyed Commander of Wishes” in reference to her relationship with AURYN. While the book makes noteworthy the point that the image of AURYN is on its “cover(s)”, it does not actually refer to it as AURYN.
A common misconception is that AURYN is a simple magical object that grants wishes. The truth is that AURYN’s power flows from the Childlike Empress and that it can only be used with her permission. The powerful amulet cannot be used against her and if she does not grant the use of it to someone they are unable to influence AURYN.
“Do What You Wish” (German: “Tu, was du willst”).Two mythological serpents, symmetrical, bite at the other’s tail. In the book, they form an oval, and are not intertwined. One serpent is white and one is black. Each has an eye to correspond to the color of the book’s print, red and green. It may be noted that the film version has the two snakes in an “Infinity Knot”, a kind of grief knot which looks like a more intricate variation of the figure “8” infinity symbol and another sign of ouroboros. The two snakes represent the dual nature of the two worlds, Fantasia (German: Phantásien) and Reality, but also the twin nature of their mutual creation and destruction. On the back of AURYN are these words:
AURYN helps guide Atreyu through Fantasia in his quest to find a cure for the ailing Childlike Empress, and in turn defeat the Nothing. It serves him clandestinely, but does return him to the Ivory Tower. Although Atreyu believes himself to have failed in finding the human child past the borders of Fantasia, the Childlike Empress informs him to the contrary and that indeed the boy had been with him all along.
In the hands of the Childlike Empress, AURYN displays greater powers even in the face of the Nothing. She releases seven spirits to serve her as she ventures across her tattered realm to find the Old Man of Wandering Mountain. They carry her chariot and provide a haven for Atreyu and Falkor within.
Bastian blesses the Childlike Empress with her new name. She presents him with AURYN; her only request being that he follows the instructions written on the back. While it grants him the power to make wishes and imagine more of Fantasia, it drains him of his memories which are his only way back to his world. Bastian searches for the same obscure boundaries of Fantasia, only to realize it is within AURYN itself.
In the mystical interior of AURYN, two gargantuan serpent statues stand sentry, one shining brighter than white, the other darker than black. They guard the Waters of Life, a waterfall and pool that serve as the exit from Fantasia. The statues refuse Bastian’s passage, for he had left many stories unfinished in Fantasia. Atreyu, however, agrees to undertake the quest, which allows Bastian to return to his world. When Bastian touches the waters, their truthful properties dissolve the illusion of his glamour wishes, and he returns to being a fat little boy, instead of a Fantasian prince, but this time he has learned to love himself as he truly is. At this point the snakes of AURYN allow him to return to his world.
