Thabit Ibn Qurra's

De Imaginibus

The current chart is a house based talisman for both love and wealth from the Harranian Sabian sage Thabit Ibn Qurra's great work of astrological magic, De Imaginibus. In a house based talisman, multiple planets are used giving extra power and additional strength. This is a very special talisman because it combines multiple different purposes, in this case love, relationships, marriage, wealth, profit and good fortune. The celestial configuration necessary to make this talisman will not recur again in our lifetimes, making this talisman unique.

Thabit Ibn Qurra explains in two chapters how to make wealth talismans by working with the rulers of the Ascendant and the Ascendant, signifying the user of the talisman and the 2nd house of wealth and its ruler,

" the lord of the house of wealth [2nd] joined to the lord of the ascendant, and have reception between them and let there be a conjunction or trine or sextile aspect... And make fortunate the Ascendant and his lord and beware that the lord of the Ascendant is not retrograde or combust or cadent and not in the house opposed to its house which is the seventh and not impeded by a strong and angular malefic and make fortunate the Ascendant and the lord of the house of substance and the Moon. When you finish the image according to these [instructions] it will serve you."

De Imaginibus, Ch. III, trans. Christopher Warnock at 27.

"If you seek wealth and do not seek it from another person, but you wish your own work to thrive and multiply your profit and to harmonize and guide your talent and profession and skillfully acquire what you need to live and your necessities, make an image of business...make fortunate the Ascendant and its lord and the 10th [house] and its lord and the Moon and the lord of her house. And place the lord of the second house joined to the lord of the Ascendant with a trine or sextile aspect with reception between them, in order that one planet is in the sign of the other whom it is joined or its exaltation. And make fortunate the 11th [house] and its lord and make fortunate the 8th [house] if you can..."

De Imaginibus, Ch. IV, trans. Christopher Warnock at 33.
Thabit also explains how to make a love talisman,

"And this is an example: if you wish to make an image to make a wife [feel love] towards her husband, make the significator of the 7th house aspecting the lord of the ascendant."

De Imaginibus, Ch. VII, trans. Christopher Warnock at 51.
Once again Thabit, in making a love talisman, like a wealth talisman, to make the ruler of the Ascendant and the Ascendant, as well as the relevant house and its ruler strong. So in making our combination talisman we wish to have the following factors:
  • Ruler of the Ascendant strong
  • Ruler of the 2nd house of money strong
  • Ruler of the 7th house of love and marriage strong
  • Ascendant strong
  • 2nd house strong
  • 7th house strong
  • 11th house strong
  • 8th house strong
  • Ruler of the Ascendant, making a positive aspect with reception to the ruler of the 2nd and the ruler of the 7th
  • Moon strong and unafflicted
As you can see from the chart below we manage to get 9 out of ten of these factors! Amazing!

Love/Wealth Talisman Back Image
The Love & Wealth talisman image, which you can see above to right, was created by the talented artist/mage Nigel Jackson from the directions in Cornelius Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy,

"There remains as yet an other manner of images not according to the similitude of Celestiall figures, but according to the similitude of that which the mind of the worker desires, of whose they are the effigies, and representation: So to procure love we make images embracing one the other: to discord, striking one the other; to bring misery, or destruction as dammage [damage] to a man, or house, or City or any thing else, we make images distorted, broken in members, and parts after the likeness and figure of that thing which we would destroy or damnifie; And Magicians advise us that in casting or engraving images we would write upon it the name of the effect...Also on the breast let the name of the signe or face ascending, and Lord thereof be written; also the names and Characters of its Angels."

Three Books of Occult Philosophy Bk II, ch. 49.
The image on the back of the Love/Wealth talisman, which you can see above to left, has around the edge in Hebrew, Proverbs 8.21: "That I may cause those who love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures." In the middle to the left is the sign of Libra, the rising sign, above is Aries, the sign on the 7th house, below is Scorpio, ruler of the 2nd house and to left is the Moon.
