16th Lunar



Money & Business

The current chart, an astrological talisman, comes from the Picatrix, an encyclopedic work of medieval Arabic astrological magic.
You can obtain a copy of Sloane manuscript number 3679, a copy of the Latin Picatrix, from Renaissance Astrology.
The election for the current chart's talisman uses the 16th mansion of the Mansions of the Moon, a 28 fold division of the monthly orbit of the Moon. The tenth century Arabic astrologer Al-Biruni gives the name of the sixteenth mansion as Al-Zubana "The Claws of the Scorpion" Book of Instructions Section 164 (Wright trans.)
Here are the instructions for the image of the Sixteenth Lunar Mansion from Picatrix. The Talisman of Al-Zubana or Al-Jubana, Picatrix says,

" for the making of money (which is to say, in selling and earning). When the Moon has passed around to this Mansion, fashion in a plate of silver the figure of a man seated in a throne and carrying a scale in his hands. Cense [the image] with fine odors, and set it out under the stars for seven nights, saying each night: You, Azeruch, make such and such happen for me, and complete for me my request. Ask of it pertaining to selling and earning. And know that Azeruch is the name of the lord of this Mansion."

(translation by Robert Thomas)

Chart produced by Solar Fire 5

Originally the lunar mansions were sidereal, that is their boundaries were measured against the fixed stars. Later the tropical boundaries of the mansions were set at approximately 12 degrees and 51 minutes beginning with the first degree of Aries.
Under this later system, the sixteenth mansion, "begins in the 12th degree 51st minute and 26th second of Libra and is ended at the 25th degree, 42nd minute and 52nd second of that sign."

(translation by Robert Thomas)
The time chosen for the election is May 30, 2004 at 4:32 p.m. EDT in Cleveland Park, a neighborhood of Washington, D.C. 38 N 56, 77 W 03.
At this time the Moon rises in the 16th mansion. She is waxing and is unafflicted by the malefics. As a bonus she is conjunct the very benefic fixed star Spica!
