Election and Talismans of the Thirteenth Mansion of the Moon for Love and Sex from Picatrix

This week's talismans come from David Pingree's Latin version of Picatrix, an encyclopedic work of medieval Arabic astrological magic. The election for this week's talismans uses the thirteenth 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 thirteenth mansion as Al-Awwa "the Barker". Book of Instructions Section 164 (Wright trans.) page 83.
I am pleased to have several versions of the images of the 13th Mansion created by Nigel Jackson. There is a set of double images included in my Mansions of the Moon Mini-Course and Nigel has created a special single image, a portion of which (ineffective for magical purposes) appears above. For information on the Mansions Mini-Course or obtaining the beautiful single image Contact me.
Here are the instructions for the image of the Thirteenth Lunar Mansion from Picatrix,

"The thirteenth Mansion is Alahue, and it is for the liberation of men who are not able to come to women and for the creation of love between men and women. When the Moon has come around to this Mansion, fashion from red wax the image of an erect man (that is, with an erect penis); and let it be in all ways the image of a man desiring to be in coitus with a woman."

"From white wax fashion the image of a woman. Bind the two images together face to face, and cense them with amber and lignum aloes, and wrap them in a piece of white silk which has been washed in rosewater; and in whichever image write the name of the one you desire."

"If a woman shall carry these images with her, she will be most strongly desired by the man whose name is upon the image - which is to say, when he sees her. And if another is tied or bound, who is not able to perform with women, if he shall carry the images with him [the binding] shall be dissolved and he will be able to perform with women. And know that the name of the lord of this Mansion is Azerut."

Picatrix Book IV, Chapter 9 (translation by Robert Thomas).

Originally the lunar mansions were sidereal, that is their boundaries were measured against the fixed stars. Later the 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 thirteenth Mansion is called [Alahue]. It is begun from the 4th degree 17th minute and 6th second of Virgo, and is ended in the 17th degree 8th minute and 36th second of this sign. In this mansion you may make images for the increasing of trade and your money, the increase of harvests, that buildings may be completed, and for the liberation of captives." Picatrix Excerpt IV, page xli (translation by Robert Thomas).
The time chosen for the election is July 13, 2002 at 4:14 pm in Cleveland Park, a neighborhood of Washington, D.C. 38 N 55, 77 W 03. At this time the Moon is at 6 degrees of Virgo. Thus at our elected date and time the Moon is in her thirteenth Mansion.
Here is further information on Astrological Talismans and Astrological Magic. If you wish to delve even deeper into this fascinating area I offer an Mansions of the Moon Mini-Course as well as a traditional astrology and astrological magic discussion group Spiritus Mundi.
