Introduction to Astrological Talismans & Amulets


Talisman comes from the Greek telesma meaning consecrated or sacred object. Amulet comes from the Latin amuletum and refers more narrowly to objects with an apotropaic or protective function. The key to astrological talismans and amulets is the timing of their creation which is determined by electional astrology. Unless talismans are created at an astrologically auspicious time as well as being ritually consecrated they are nothing more than jewelry with astrological designs, lacking any magical or spiritual charge.
Talismans represent the logical extension of a spiritual world view and have been a part of Western culture for thousands of years. Renaissance Magi like Marsilio Ficino and Cornelius Agrippa saw the entire Cosmos as one great, interconnected Being, a system based on intricate harmony, sympathy and correspondence, both spiritual and material. Astrology, Alchemy and Magic were seen as the preparatory studies for Hermetic Gnosis, a practical way of experiencing the unity of the Cosmos.

All of the information on the website has been carefully researched from authentic traditional sources and meticulously cited for further reading and study.

Renaissance Astrology Talismans in the British Museum


British Museum
The British Museum was founded in 1753 and is one of the largest and most important museums in the world with its comprehensive collections totaling over seven million objects. It has one of the foremost collections in the world of magical items and objects.
Renaissance Astrology is proud that two of its authentic astrological talismans have been made a part of the permanent collection of the British Museum. The Mercury table talisman and the Venus table talisman are described as "Twenty-first century version of a silver Hebrew Renaissance style planetary talisman based upon a design first described by Cornelius Agrippa in 1531."
Renaissance Astrology is committed to the highest level of authentic Renaissance and medieval talismanic creation, preserving the essence of traditional astrological magic in a contemporary context.


Sources for Astrological Talismans & Amulets


For Renaissance astrological magic our key printed sources for the actual construction of talismans and amulets are Cornelius Agrippa's encyclopedic Three Books of Occult Philosophy and Marsilio Ficino's fascinating Three Books on Life. The association of astrology and astrological magic with evil spirits created a chill with regard to publication of texts on these subjects in the Renaissance. However, there are several other interesting printed sources including The Supreme Mysteries also known as the Archidoxes of Magic attributed to Paracelsus and Mysterium Sigillorum by Israel Hibner.
A considerable number of astrological magic texts circulated in the medieval and Renaissance period in manuscript. Frank Klassen provides an interesting list of library holdings of Manuscripts of Astrological Image Magic. One of the most important manuscripts of astrological magic was the Picatrix or Ghayat al Hikam, "the Aim of the Wise". This book, written circa AD 1000 and translated into Latin in 1256 at the court of Alphonso the Wise of Castile, was probably the most influential of all astrological magic texts. Both Agrippa and Ficino cite the Picatrix extensively. Here is our complete English translation of Picatrix. Another key text is De Imaginibus "On Images" by the Harranian Sabian sage Thabit Ibn Qurra. This text, newly translated and published by Renaissance Astrology, represents the most sophisticated astrological magic ever practiced, using as it does, the entire repertoire of traditional Electional Astrology. The Book of the Treasure of Alexander, translated and published by Renaissance Astrology, is a 10th century Arabic Hermetic source with over 30 fascinating astrological talismans and original talismanic images. Another interesting source for ceremonial magic using astrology are the Pentacles from the Greater Key of Solomon.
There are also a large number of translations from authentic Renaissance and medieval astrological magic sources available on the Renaissance Astrology web site including translations from Picatrix, as well as Planetary Rings from the Treasure of Alexander, Hermes on the 15 Fixed Stars, Albertus Magnus on the Talismans of the Signs of the Zodiac and Constellations, The Images & Figures of Hermes, Seals of Stones of Solomon and the Seals & Sigils of Chael.

Because Astrological Magic which governs the construction of astrological talismans depends on the changing cycles of the Heavens we must wait until an appropriate time to make a particular talisman or amulet.

Testimonials

TOP

At Renaissance Astrology we guarantee that our talismans are made at the most astrologically auspicious times chosen using traditional (pre-1700) astrology according to traditional sources like Cornelius Agrippa, Picatrix and the Harranian Sabian sage Thabit Ibn Qurra. We use the appropriate materials and designs and all talismans are consecrated when created.
While we cannot guarantee exactly what the effect of a particular talisman will be or when it will take effect, I can personally vouch for the power of astrological talismans and have received many unsolicited testimonials. Here are a few:

"I just accepted a new job that is a significant pay increase. I don't think it is any wonder it happened on Jupiter day. Thanks for providing me with some of the magic that helped to made it happen."
George Sorvalis Jupiter Talisman 9-14-06

"Things seem to be improving rather quickly since I did the Jupiter ritual and started wearing my talisman...Since I've been wearing this I have been receiving more recognition and have been referred for and almost been begged to work in several permanent positions."
Danielle Johnson Jupiter Talisman 5-5-06

"I'm a believer, my very large income was restored and has been growing non-stop since, with great promise and growth in the new company itself, which is currently on the verge of another major surge in growth."
RT Jupiter Talisman 1-0-07

I am writing to let you know that the talismans have arrived safely and I am deeply thankful to you for these beautifully crafted, and powerfully magical objects. They are everything that I hoped they would be and more. The Work that you do is a great service to mankind and I am eternally grateful. The meditation cards are perfect for the task of visualizing the necessary energies for invocation and I'm really looking forward to using them Thursday morning, and thereafter. The instructions are clear and easy to understand as I am familiar with ceremonial ritual.
William Cummings 12-10-07

Chris, Your pendant worked! Thanks. Within hours of putting it back on, I started to get better and slept well without coughing all night! You should've seen the pollution in India. It was like a grey shroud all over the cities.
Feroza 3-12-08

Thanks for making these powerful talismans in the ancient way Mr. Warnock, people like you are part of the movement to return functional mysticism back to the masses, a true pioneer. I am proud to own one of your talismans. I believe in the future your talismans will be collectors items not only for their immense power, but their beauty as well.
AA 11-17-08

I wanted to thank you for the Sun Talismans I ordered from you for my Dad and Myself. My dad and i are business partners as apartment landlords and have been spinning our wheels forever just making ends meet. 2 weeks after receiving our Sun Talismans, tenants who normally linger to pay their rent have surprised us paying early...and in full including late charges! We broke our monthly collection record by triple in the 20 years we have been in business! And take this...I, still on the single market, had a mysterious encounter with a beautiful single lady who could actually turn out to be my soulmate! These things work!
Joseph Gracia Sun Talisman 12-9-08

The 3rd Mansion Talisman is working great for me. I recently got accepted to a top graduate program I've really been wanting to get into!

Types of Astrological Talismans & Amulets

TOP

The key to the construction of an astrological talisman or amulet lies in the choice of the astrological factor or factors whose energy or spirit the mage wishes to capture. In traditional Western astrological magic this choice appears to have been task oriented. The client or the mage himself wishes to accomplish a particular result, love, money, success, any of a myriad of possibilities. The mage then selects the most appropriate astrological factor typically choosing either a planet, fixed star, Mansion of the Moon or house based talisman.
Constellations
The mage must consider the current state of the Heavens for not all talismans or amulets can be made at any particular time. The mage may also, depending on the circumstances, consider the birth chart of the client or subject of the talisman, a horary chart or even the chart of a city or country, in choosing the talisman and the time for its creation. The astrological magician, therefore, must have a good working knowledge of the theory and practice of traditional Electional Astrology. Using the principles of electional astrology, the mage chooses a time when the particular astrological factor is strong and appropriately placed.
Once an appropriate time is chosen, the mage gathers the materials from which the talisman or amulet will be made. Each planet, for example, is associated with a certain metal. As the chosen time the mage creates the talisman. My talismans are all cast from precious metals, but talismans can also be stamped, inscribed or engraven and made in metal, gems, or even on paper or parchment. The effect of gemstone and metal talismans is longer lasting, for as the Renaissance philosopher Marsilio Ficino observes, "gems and metals, though they seem too hard for accepting a celestial influence, nevertheless retain it longer if they receive it." Three Books on Life, Book III, chapter 14. Once again the key is that the talisman must receive its form at the elected time if it is to be efficacious.
After making the talisman with the appropriate signs, sigils, characters, images and designs, as set forth at length in our traditional sources, the mage then consecrates the talisman in a magical ceremony. In one sense this can be seen as charging the talisman with the energy of the chosen astrological factor. At the same time, the consecration can also be seen as the invocation of the spirit ruling or animating the chosen astrological factor who then inhabits or infuses the talisman with its particular powers. The talisman is then worn by the user or placed in a location where the mage wishes the effects of the talisman or amulet to manifest.


Planetary Talismans and Amulets

TOP

The most popular form of talismans are the talismans of the seven traditional planets. We also look to the differing Natures of the Planets each of which, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, the Sun, Venus, Mercury and the Moon has a different effect and rules different things and activities in the Material World. I provide example planetary talismans with horoscopes for their creation below. I also provide a Planetary Magic Mini-Course which teaches how to make the traditional talismans of the planets.
We first look at Saturn the Greater Malefic. Saturn, like Mars, the Lesser Malefic, has an energy that is necessary, but often difficult to deal with. He is associated with melancholy and death as well as agriculture, construction, occult studies, solidity and discipline. For much of 2004-2006 Saturn will be in an afflicted state that is inappropriate for talismans. Here is my sole example of a Saturn talisman from the encyclopedic book of astrological magic, Picatrix.
Jupiter

Next is Jupiter the Greater Benefic who is perenially popular being associated with good fortune, prosperity, justice and authority. Here are a number of examples of Jupiter talismans, with actual horoscopes for their creation.

Next is the Sun, the Light of the Day, associated with healing, wealth, friendship, nobility, authority. Here are a number of examples of Sun talismans, with actual horoscopes for their creation.

Agrippa Sun talisman for fame
Sun talisman for depression
Picatrix Sun talisman
Sun talisman
Mysterium Sigillorum Sun talisman

Sun in Leo talisman

While these are called talismans of the signs, they are more appropriate termed Sun talismans, because they are prepared when the Sun is in their signs. They come from the The Supreme Mysteries also known as the Archidoxes of Magic attributed to Paracelsus.

Paracelsus' Sun in Libra talisman

Next is Venus, the Lesser Benefic, associated with love, friendship, travel, art, music, beauty. Here are a number of examples of Venus talismans, with actual horoscopes for their creation.

Fixed Star Talismans

TOP

The Moon
The Moon
Our next type of astrological talismans are the talismans of the Fixed Stars. In Ptolemaic astronomy the fixed stars occupied the eighth sphere just beyond the last planetary sphere of Saturn. The fixed stars were fixed relative to the planets, and played an important role in medieval and Renaissance astrological magic.
One of our most important traditional sources on the fixed stars in astrological magic was Hermes Trismegistus on the 15 fixed stars. This astrological text, which circulated in many manuscript versions in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, lists 15 important fixed stars, their sigil or character, the plants and gems ruled by the star and the effects created by its talisman. Cornelius Agrippa in his Three Books of Occult Philosophy also provides very useful Fixed Star Images for astrological talismans.
To make fixed star talismans Cornelius Agrippa advises the mage as follows,

"Now the manner of making these kinds of Rings, is this, viz. when any Star ascends fortunately, with the fortunate aspect, or conjunction of the Moon, we must take a stone, and Hearb that is under that Star, and make a Ring of the Metall that is suitable to this Star, and in it fasten the stone, putting the Hearb, or root under it; not omitting the inscriptions of images, names, and Characters, as also the proper suffumigations"

Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Book I, chapter 47.
Here are a number of examples of fixed star talismans, with actual horoscopes for their creation.

Talisman of the Wing of Corvus for protection from spirits

Talismans of the Mansions of the Moon

Mars

The next type of astrological talismans are the talismans of the Mansions of the Moon. Just as the Sun in his yearly orbit passes through the fixed stars that make up the constellations of the Zodiac, so too the Moon, in her monthly orbit passes through the fixed stars that make up the Mansions of the Moon.
Our key source for information on the talismans of the Mansions of the Moon is Picatrix, an encyclopedic text of Arabic astrological magic. Here is a complete listing of the Picatrix Lunar Mansion talismans, with their images, incense, ritual, talismans and effects. I offer a Mansions of the Moon Mini-Course which teaches how to make traditional lunar mansions talismans.

House Based Full Chart Talismans

The most sophisticated talismans are not based on a single astrological factor, but work with the entire repertoire of traditional Electional Astrology. The primary method in elections, choices of astrologically auspicious times to take action, is to look to the appropriate ruler of the 12 astrological houses which govern all areas of life. House based talismans, therefore, use a much more complex methodology, looking to the essential dignity of the appropriate house rulers, their aspects and other factors.
The key texts for these complex house based talismans are Picatrix and De Imaginibus "On Images" by the Harranian Sabian sage Thabit Ibn Qurra. These texts represent the height of astrological magic technique and can include such subtleties as tuning the talisman election to the natal chart of the user or person whom the mage seeks to effect, tuning the election to a horary chart asked about the mage's objective and dual talismans whose elections have been adjusted to each other. Here are examples of talismans with actual charts for their creation.
