Mercury Talisman from Agrippa for Knowledge, Peace and Wealth

Pythagoras used to say that he had received as a gift from Mercury the perpetual transmigration of his soul, so that it was constantly transmigrating and passing into all sorts of plants or animals.

Diogenes Laertius

We continue a string of promising elections for Astrological Talismans and Astrological Magic with a talisman of Mercury from Cornelius Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy.

Our chosen time is May 8, 2002 at 7:10 am EDT (+4) in Cleveland Park, a Washington, D.C. neighborhood at 38 N 56 77 W 03. At this time Mercury rises in his sign Gemini. It is the day of Mercury (Wednesday) and the planetary hour of Mercury. The Moon applies to a sextile of Mercury. We note that Mercury is applying to a conjunction of Saturn, but that he makes the aspect with the Moon first, that Saturn is dignified by triplicity and that the conjunction is with reception.
If you wish to make your own talisman you can use the tables, seals and characters of Mercury found on the Mercury Talisman page. Cornelius Agrippa says the Mercury talisman,

"[I]t renders the bearer thereof gratefull, and fortunate to do what he pleaseth: it bringeth gain, and prevents poverty, conduceth to memory, understanding, and divination, and to the understanding of occult things by dreams:..."

Cornelius Agrippa, Three Books of Occult Philosophy Bk. II, Chapter 22 (Tyson ed.) page 318.
