Introduction to the Greater Key of Solomon & the Pentacles of Solomon

King Solomon
The figure of King Solomon and his wisdom and power exerted an almost hypnotic influence over magicians and esotericists since ancient times. Solomon's wisdom was seen as extending to astrology and magic, particularly the evocation and binding of spirits. By the Middle Ages and Renaissance a whole variety of grimoires, books of ceremonial magic, were attributed to the authorship of Solomon. One of the most famous was the Clavicula Solomonis or the Greater Key of Solomon. Many different manuscripts of the Greater Key exist and you can see more about the variant versions at Joseph Peterson's Esoteric Archives. The most famous and widely available translation of the Greater Key is by S. Liddell MacGregor Mathers first published in 1889.
The Greater Key does contain much of interest for astrological magic. For example it provides a whole list of astrologically appropriate times using the planetary days and hours for various activities and types of magic. You can see the Greater Key planetary day/hour timing. The most important use of astrology in the Greater Key of Solomon are the planetary pentacles. These are similar to astrological talismans and are used for invoking the spirits of the planets. The Mathers edition of the Greater Key of Solomon lists forty four different pentacles each with different powers and properties.
There is a certain amount of confusion, probably stemming from the variant manuscripts regarding the proper materials and timing for the pentacles. In Book I, chapter 8, the magician is advised that the pentacles of all the planets should be made on Mercury day (Wednesday) and Mercury hour, with the Moon in an air or earth sign, as well as waxing and on an even day after the New Moon. In addition, colors are given for the pentacles and the instructions make clear that the pentacles are to be constructed of paper and the design written on them. However, in Book I, chapter 18, of the Greater Key of Solomon the standard planetary metals are listed and the magician advised to make the pentacles in the day and hour of the planet itself. Paper is listed as an alternative material.

The Renaissance Astrology Inner Circle is proud to present authentic astrological talismans. Astrological pentacles and mirrors are also examples of different types of astrological talismans. The key to the creation of astrological talismans is that they must be created and take on their final form at a time that has been elected, i.e. properly selected, using the appropriate astrological factors. For example, the basic recipe for a planetary talisman is that the planet be:
  1. Dignified
  2. Rising or culminating (within at least 8-10 degrees of the Ascendant or Midheaven)
  3. In the planetary hour of the planet
  4. With the planet and the Moon unafflicted.
It is not enough to make the talisman or pentacle whenever convenient and then to consecrate the talisman at a properly elected time. The talisman needs to take on its final form, e.g. be inscribed, etched, cast, painted, carved, printed out, etc., when the appropriate astrological factors are in effect. In addition, to creation, it is also vital that the talisman be consecrated at the elected time, because consecration calls the appropriate spirit or spirit into the talisman which is the source of its power. Renaissance Astrology usually works directly from our traditional (pre-1700) sources which provide recipes for hundreds of different talismans or we use the principles of traditional astrological magic to elect appropriate times for talismans. We make talismans not only of the planets, but also of fixed stars, Mansions of the Moon, decan/faces, multiple house based and other celestial factors.
While there are different models for understanding how talismans or pentacles work, I am increasingly pulled towards seeing talismans as a dwelling place of a celestial spirit or spirits. Talismans provide a way to connect with these spirits and to allow their influence to spread throughout our lives. At Renaissance Astrology we follow only the right hand path and do only benefic magic. The spirits we work with are angelic. Our approach is devotional. We see these spirits as powerful and positive beings who cannot be commanded, but to whom polite requests can be made. Respect is the key and we always seek to act respectfully towards the celestial spirits. We do not need to be afraid that if we make a small mistake in ritual that the reaction will be strongly negative as the celestial angels are benign and forgiving. On the other hand, we do not act foolishly or disrespectfully towards them.
The effects of astrological talismans or pentacles are unpredictable. Generally the effects will fall within the actions and areas ruled by the particular planet, fixed star, etc. For example, Jupiter rules wealth, prosperity, good fortune and justice, but also storms. One client who bought a Jupiter talisman reported that just as the deliveryman came to their house, a sudden thunderstorm started. However, exactly what effects a particular talisman will have for a particular person cannot be predicted. Many clients are happy and have noticeable and positive effects, some clients are unhappy with their talismans and say that they see no effects at all. A few clients have reported what they believe are negative effects from talismans. While these clients often have never had any experience with magic or have extravagant expectations, potential clients should keep this in mind. We cannot guarantee what the effects of talismans will be. Clients that insist on guaranteed results should not buy talismans or pentacles.
Timing is also unpredictable. We have had clients that had noticeable and appropriate effects as soon as they bought the talisman or pentacle, but before receiving it. Others have effects immediately upon reciept, others took months, and some, as noted, saw no effects at all. Astrological talismans or pentacles are best suited for clients that are knowledgeable about the esoteric, experienced with magic and/or are willing to take the time and energy to make a long term connection with the spirit of the talisman. Astrological talismans are not appropriate for clients looking for a quick fix, to immediately win big at the lottery or stock market or are in an emergency situation.
Working with Renaissance Astrology astrological talismans and pentacles could possibly be best analogized to working with saints. These are highly benefic and powerful beings whom you can make requests of, but cannot command. They will do what is in your best interest, not necessarily what your ego desires. Just being in their presence and being under their influence is a very positive experience causing positive internal change, ultimately perhaps of more value than simply getting one's ego desires and physical needs met.
Renaissance Astrology talismans and pentacles are all hand made at precisely chosen times in very limited editions. Once a talisman or pentacle has been shipped, it is used and I cannot re-sell it. Would you want a used talisman? Because used talismans cannot be resold and because, as noted above I cannot guarantee what the effect of talismans or pentacles will be there are NO REFUNDS, RETURNS OR EXCHANGES FOR TALISMANS, MIRRORS OR PENTACLES. If you buy a talisman or pentacle, you take the risk of it not working as you wish or hope.
