Introduction to Astrological Talismans & Amulets

Jupiter Wealth Talisman
Astrological talismans are a way of harnessing the spiritual and magical power of the Heavens. By making a talisman at an astrologically auspicious time we can charge the talisman with the energy of a particular planet, Mansion of the Moon, fixed star or other astrological factor. Timing is the key to making astrological talismans. Without being made at the the proper timing according to the principles of traditional electional astrology, a "talisman" is nothing more than a hunk of metal. All talismans at Renaissance Astrology are made strictly according to the timing and design principles laid out in traditional sources like Cornelius Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Picatrix and Thabit Ibn Qurra's De Imaginibus. Here is more about the history and theory of astrological talismans.
All Renaissance Astrology talismans are made from various metals, with our primary focus on sterling silver and bronze. We then add the metal associated with the planet, for example, gold for the Sun, iron for Mars, tin for Jupiter and copper for Venus. Silver is appropriate for Mercury or the Moon. Beware of anyone who suggests using the metal mercury in a Mercury talisman as mercury is highly toxic! Renaissance Astrology talismans are all cast, using the ancient lost wax process by our jeweler and jewelry designer, Wade Coleman, an experienced ceremonial magician. All Renaissance Astrology talismans are consecrated when cast. A second consecration by the user of the talisman is suggested, though not required, in order to bind the energy of the talisman to the user. Consecration instructions are provided and clients with questions can contact me for further assistance.
Renaissance Astrology talismans are made in very small numbers due to the limited window of time available for casting, on average 30-45 minutes. Often there will be only 1 or 2 suitable time windows available in an entire year! These talismans are authentic works of magical art, made according to the traditional methods, cast at the appropriate time and consecrated, not mass produced, factory stamped, base metal "talismans" without magical power or charge. Here is infomation on how talismans are cast at Renaissance Astrology.



Finding the Right Talisman

Venus Love Talisman
There are two basic ways to find the right talisman. The first is to decide what effect you want to achieve and choose a talisman that will accomplish that goal. Here are Talismans for Wealth & Good Fortune, Talismans for Love and Curse Protection Talismans. The most popular astrological talismans are the talismans of the planets. Here are the basic positive natural effects of the planets:
Here is also a list of all currently available talismans, plus you may be interested in the Pentacles from the Greater Key of Solomon.



Talismans for Your Birth Chart

TOP

The second way to choose a talisman is to pick appropriate talismans for your birthchart. Basically we choose talismans whose planets are strong in your birth chart to give you their natural effect strongly and talismans whose planets are weak in your natal chart to strengthen their natural effect. We avoid planets that are afflicted in your chart because you can have an "allergic" reaction to them. Whatever their placement or rulership in your birth chart planets primarly give their natural effects through their talismans and their natal placement or rulership only secondarily.
If you are familiar with traditional astrology you can check your birth chart as follows:
  • Talismans will give a strong effect if the planet is dignified in its sign, exaltation or triplicity, in your natal chart. For example, Jupiter in Pisces, his sign, in your natal chart means Jupiter is an excellent talisman for you.

  • Talismans in which the planet is afflicted by being in fall, detriment, combust or retrograde in your natal chart, are "yellow flags". Use these talismans with caution. Some people get good results with talismans of planets afflicted in their natal chart, others have problems. It is a good idea to do a divination (I ching, tarot, etc.) first before using these talismans. For example, if your Saturn is in Aries, his fall, in your natal chart, you need be careful using a Saturn talisman. If a planet is afflicted in your natal chart you can do planetary charity to help with the problems it causes.

  • Planets in any other placements in your natal chart other the specific dignities or afflictions list listed above are fine as talismans. The dignities and afflictions listed above are the only ones we consider with talismans, even though there are many other types of dignity and affliction in traditional astrology. For example, planets in particular houses or making particular aspects are not a problem if you wish to use them as talismans.
If you are not familiar with traditional astrology you can get an in-depth look at the appropriate talismans for your birth chart and a Talismanic Prescription through all of my natal readings, including the mini-natal reading, Astrological Checkup, the Full Natal Reading and Spiritual Path Reading. If you are seriously interested in a particular talisman and want to know if it is appropriate for you, you can contact me with the time, date and place of your birth and I can give a quick analysis of the planet's suitability.



Talismans for Wealth & Good Fortune

TOP

Triple Tree of Wealth talisman
There are a number of different talisman available for wealth. The best planet for wealth is Jupiter, the ruler of prosperity, wealth and good fortune. The fixed star that is the best for wealth is Spica. Spica is the bright star in the sheaf of wheat in the constellation Virgo and is associated with the harvest. Other excellent wealth and good fortune talismans are the Triple Tree of Wealth talisman as well as the 2nd Libra Face talisman. Finally, Mercury, is good for wealth, in particular wealth associated with business, communications, sales, marketing, the Internet and high tech.
The most powerful wealth talisman currently available at Renaissance Astrology is the Triple Tree of Wealth talisman. This is a house based talisman from the ancient Arabic grimoire, the Picatrix. This talisman has a birth chart just like a person with a strong Jupiter and Venus ruling wealth, fame and success. The conditions that this talisman was made under will not be able to be replicated for many years if at all.
The fixed star Aldebaran Talisman is good for money and honor. The constellation Hydra Talisman is good for wealth, wisdom and protection.
Another good choice for wealth is the 7th Lunar Mansion for wealth, wisdom and "all good things." This is available in Silver 7th Mansion Talisman , White Bronze 7th Mansion Talismans and Glass 7th Mansion Talismans .



Talismans for Love

The best planet for love is Venus, and we have both Venus talismans & Venus rings. The Twenty Sixth Mansion love talisman is also an excellent choice, particularly if Venus is afflicted in your natal chart. The Thirteenth Mansion is perfect for sex and erotic love.


Curse & Protection Talismans
