Talisman of



Temperance & Favor

In the current chart, an astrological talisman, we will compare a fixed star talisman of Regulus from Cornelius Agrippa's, Three Books of Occult Philosophy and Hermes on the 15 Fixed Stars, a manuscript attributed to the sage Hermes Trismegistus.
You can obtain a copy of Three Books of Occult Philosophy in my Renaissance Astrology CD Library along with 26 other books of astrology, astrological magic and esoteric philosophy.
Medieval Lion
Regulus, or the Cor Leonis, the Heart of the Lion, is a triple star, the brightest in the constellation Leo. The English astrologer William Lilly says that Regulus, "...a Star of great vertue and influence" and one that, "...shews the Native to be magnanimous, that he is of generous and civill condition, desires to beare rule, or is ambitious of dominion over others." Christian Astrology, pages, 181, 537.
Agrippa says of the fixed stars that,

"The seventh is called the Heart of the Lyon, which amongst stones, rules over the Granate; amongst Plants, Sallendine, Mugwort, and Mastick."

Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Bk I, ch. 32.

Hermes says,
One part mugwort with artemisia and mastic, placed as aforesaid [i.e., beneath the appropriate stone, here granite or garnet, in a ring of gold] bears away anger and melancholy, restores the temperament and gives great honors."
Book of Hermes on the 15 fixed stars. Translated by B. Thomas from BM Bodleian MS. 52, ff. 44-47,
Glyph of Cor Leonis
Now I get an opportunity to use my Latin Three Books of Occult Philosophy! Granate is what the English translator uses for granatum, literally pomegranate, but also the Latin term for garnet. De Occult Philosophia, Libri Tres, Liber Primus, cap. 32. (Brill, 1992).
Agrippa provides the images of the talismans of the fixed stars, noting that,

"Under the Heart of Leo, they made the image of a Lion or Cat, or the Figure of an honorable Person sitting in a Chair; it rendreth a man temperate, appeaseth wrath, and giveth favour..."

Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Bk II, ch. 47.

The time chosen for the election is June 12, 2005 at 11:13 a.m. EDT in Cleveland Park, a neighborhood of Washington, D.C. 38 N 56, 77 W 03.
At this time Regulus, at 29 Leo 50, rises. The Moon applies to a conjunction of Regulus, and is not afflicted by bad aspects to the malefics.
Agrippa says,

"When any star ascends fortunately, with the fortunate aspect or conjunction of the Moon, We must take a stone, and herb that is under that star, and make a ring of that metal that is suitable to this star and fasten the stone, putting the herb, or root under it;

Not omitting the inscriptions of images, names and characters, also the proper suffumigations..."

Three Books of Occult Philosophy,, Bk. I, Chapter 47.
Above to right is the glyph of Cor Leonis from Agrippa. You can see a more complex glyph of Regulus at Hermes on the 15 Fixed Stars.
If you wish to delve even deeper into this fascinating area I offer an Electional Astrology Course, an Astrological Magic Course, a Mansions of the Moon Mini-Course a Planetary Magic Mini-Course as well as Astrology and Magic Books and my CD Library.
I also have an astrological magic discussion group Spiritus Mundi.
