The election for the current chart is a talisman of the planet Venus. As the goddess of love, Venus is the planet par excellence for love and marriage talismans.
Venus Lapis Love Talisman
Picture larger than actual size

I made a limited number of beautiful gemstone talismans of Venus for love made from lapis lazuli, which the Renaissance mage Cornelius Agrippa says is ruled by Venus. Three Books of Occult Philosophy Book I, Chapter 28.
The lapis gemstones were inscribed with a Venus image derived from our traditional sources at the time and date shown below.
The lapis is in a cabochon cut, 18 x 25 mm, approximately 1 inch by a half inch. After being inscribed at the proper time, the lapis cabochon is then mounted and strung on a leather cord. Each talisman comes with a color Nigel Jackson image of Venus for mediation and visualization as well as full consecration and ritual instructions.
As of January 3, 2003 the Venus Triplicity Talismans are sold out!
Let's take a look at the image descriptions from our traditional sources. The first is from Cornelius Agrippa,

"They made another Image of Venus for to get the love of women, in the Lapis Lazulus, at the hour of Venus, Venus ascending in Taurus, the figure of which was a naked maide with her haire spread abroad, having a looking glass in her hand, and a chain tyed about her neck, and nigh her a handsome young man holding her with his left hand by the chain, but with his right hand making up her hair, and they both look lovingly on one another, and about them is a little winged boy holding a sword or a dart."
Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Bk. II Chap. 43.

The Renaissance mage Giordano Bruno describes several similar images for Venus,

"A youth with a silver chain; and next to him a naked maiden dancing with a laurel crown... A golden winged boy with shining hair whose feathers have a thousand colors holding a flaming javelin... A youth and a girl wrestling, both naked, being bound with a golden chain."

De Umbris Idearum
Finally we have the description from the Latin Picatrix,

"Si ex formis Veneris formam puelle [puella] nude feceris, in eius collo cathenam circa eam tenetis, et iuxta eam hominem habentis, retro vero formam pueri parvi ensem elevantis, in hora Veneris, lapide lazuli, qui hanc ymaginem secum portaverit a mulieribus diligetur et quod voluerit faciet."

"Of the image of Venus make the image of a nude boy [girl] with a chain around his [her] neck that a man nearby is holding, behind them is the form of a small boy holding up a sword, in the hour of Venus, in the stone lapis lazuli, and whoever carries this women will like him and do what he wishes."

Picatrix, Bk. II, Chapter 10 (Translation by Christopher Warnock, Esq.)

We have not followed the electional instructions exactly, but rather chosen a time when Venus is dignified and well placed.
The time chosen for the election is December 12, 2003 at 9:24 am pm EST in Cleveland Park, a neighborhood of Washington, D.C. 38 N 56, 77 W 03.
At this time Venus rises. She is dignified by triplicity as the day ruler of earth signs, in an earth sign during the day.
It is the day of Venus. She has just separated from an opposition of the very nasty Saturn, the Greater Malefic, in detriment and retrograde. Having separated the ill effects of Saturn will not menace her.
Here is further information on Astrological Talismans and Astrological Magic.
If you wish to delve even deeper into this fascinating area I offer an Electional Astrology Course, an Astrological Magic Course, a Planetary Magic Mini-Course and a Mansions of the Moon Mini-Course as as Astrology and Magic Books and my discussion group Spiritus Mundi.
