For April 2006
The current chart is a talisman from that greatest of works of astrological magic, the encyclopedic Picatrix. This election is for a talisman of Venus.
Si ex formis Veneris feceris formam mulieris sedentis et alas habentis eius capillos retro duabus triciis attractos et in sinu suo duos pueros habentis, in hora Veneris in sua exaltacione existentis, in lapide almehe, qui hunc lapidem portaverit leviter et sine damno caminabit
From the form of Venus make the image of a seated woman with wings with her hair braided behind [her back] with two braids with two boys in her lap, in the hour of Venus, when she is exalted, in the stone almehe [quartz?], and he who carries this stone will not suffer loss or injury.
Picatrix, Book II, ch. 10 (translated by Christopher Warnock, Esq.)
The time chosen for the election is April 22, 2006 at 4:37 am EDT in Cleveland Park, a neighborhood of Washington, D.C. 38 N 55, 77 W 03.
At this time, Venus rises, in her exaltation Pisces and it is Venus hour. We have gilded the lily a bit as we have managed to get Venus day as well, making this a very nice Venus election.
