Similar to the last set, these elections represent a time when Saturn is strong and well dignified. As it is the hour of Saturn with Saturn dignified and on the midheaven, these elections are an ideal time to create talismans or other objects that embody this Saturnine influence.
As before, exercise some caution if you have an afflicted Saturn in your nativity. In fact, I would have some care even if you have a well dignified Saturn as it is not an easy influence to manage unless you are at the right stage in your life to make best use of it. There are classical tomes such as Agrippa’s Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Ficino’s Three Books of LIfe and the Picatrix that describe some talismans for specific uses, but a planetary talisman’s influence can extend beyond such narrow uses, especially if the Images used include general Saturn figures.
I would especially recommend a Saturn talisman if you are setting down roots, getting serious about study, or retreating from the world for a period of reflection and contemplation. If it’s your Saturn return, you likely already have enough Saturn in your personality and there may not be as much benefit to adding to it, unless Saturn happens to be in a good house and/or supported by benefics. It is probably going to feel a little restricting if you’re a more happy go lucky type of personality even if there is a Saturn talisman in the Picatrix to be able to drink as much as you like.
As always, these are set for London, UK and will need to be modified for your location. This will require you to draw up a chart and check that the electional conditions are met – it is not just a simple case of correcting for time zone.
19/02/18. 0832. The Moon is waxing, peregrine and it makes an applying trine to Mars. Saturn is on the midheaven and makes no other applying aspects.
26/02/18. 0807. The Moon is waxing, it is essentially dignified in its domicile and makes applying trines to both the benefics, Venus and Jupiter. Saturn makes no applying aspects and is just separating from a sextile to the Sun. It’s an especially benefic Saturn election.
05/03/18. 0741. The Moon is waning, it is peregrine and makes no applying aspects. Saturn is on the midheaven and otherwise makes no applying aspects.
11/09/18. 1948. The Moon is waxing, it is peregrine and makes no applying aspects. Saturn makes an applying sextile to Venus, although Venus is in her detriment so cannot offer much assistance. Saturn went direct on the 6th so it is still very slow. I would exercise a little caution with this one, unless it is for an election in which you want something to be especially long lasting.
