For June 2013
Talisman of the
13th LUNAR MANSION
The current talisman comes from Picatrix, an encyclopedic work of medieval Arabic astrological magic. The election for this week's talismans uses the thirteenth mansion of the Mansions of the Moon, a 28 fold division of the monthly orbit of the Moon. The tenth century Arabic astrologer Al-Biruni gives the name of the thirteenth mansion as Al-Awwa "the Barker". Book of Instructions Section 164 (Wright trans.) page 83. "The thirteenth Mansion is called [Alahue]. It is begun from the 4th degree 17th minute and 6th second of Virgo, and is ended in the 17th degree 8th minute and 36th second of this sign." Picatrix Bk I, ch 4.
Here are the instructions for the image of the Thirteenth Lunar Mansion from Picatrix,
"The thirteenth Mansion is Alahue, and it is for the liberation of men who are not able to come to women and for the creation of love between men and women. When the Moon has come around to this Mansion, fashion...the image of an erect man (that is, with an erect penis); and let it be in all ways the image of a man desiring to be in coitus with a woman...fashion the image of a woman...Bind the two images together face to face, and cense them with amber and lignum aloes, and wrap them in a piece of white silk which has been washed in rosewater; and in whichever image write the name of the one you desire.
If a woman shall carry these images with her, she will be most strongly desired by the man whose name is upon the image - which is to say, when he sees her. And if another is tied or bound, who is not able to perform with women, if he shall carry the images with him [the binding] shall be dissolved and he will be able to perform with women. And know that the name of the lord of this Mansion is Azerut."
Picatrix Book IV, Chapter 9.
