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

Please note that while many clients are happy with their pentacles and talismans, some are not and I cannot guarantee exactly what the effects will be for any individual client. Because of this and because I cannot resell talismans, there are no refunds, exchanges or returns on talismans or pentacles.
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:
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.
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.
