Talisman of



Love & Happiness

The current astrological chart is a talisman of Venus in Libra for love & happiness.
The description of this image comes from our traditional sources. The first is Picatrix, a compendium of medieval Arabic astral magic. Here is the passage from the Ouroboros Picatrix, available from Renaissance Astrology:

Apollonius symbolizes Venus by a woman standing with an apple in her right hand and holding a comb that looks like a board with various pictures on it, in her left hand.

Ouroboros Picatrix, Bk. II, Chapter 10.
Here is the description from the Latin Picatrix,

Si ex formis Veneris formam mulieris feceris in eius dextra malum tenentis, in sinistra vero pectinem, in lapide albo, primo facie Libre ascendente, qui hac ymaginem supra se habuerit sive portaverit ridens erit semper et alacer.

According to the form of Venus make the form of a woman, holding an apple in her right hand and a comb in her left hand, in white stone, the first face of Libra ascending, and whoever has or carries the above image will always laugh and be cheerful.

Picatrix Bk. II, Chapter 10 (Translation by Christopher Warnock, Esq.)

The elected time and date is 9:38 am, EDT on August 23, 2005 for Cleveland Park, a neighborhood of Washington, D.C. 38 N 56 77 W 03.
At this time the Venus rises. It is the planetary hour of Venus.
Venus is highly dignified by sign, but is 7 degrees away from conjoining the malefic South Node. Not perfect, but almost out of orb.
Agrippa recommends highly the Hymns of Orpheus for ritual purposes. Here is the Hymn to Venus. Rose or other sweet smells would be excellent incense for a Venus ritual.
Here is further information on Astrological Talismans and Astrological Magic.
