Seven pentacles consecrated to Saturn

First Pentacle of Saturn
Designed to compel others to submit to the possessor’s wishes & requests.

This Pentacle is of great value and utility for striking terror into the Spirits. Wherefore, upon its being shown to them they submit, and kneeling upon the earth before it, they obey.

The Hebrew letters within the square are the four great Names of God which are written with four letters:–IHVH, Yod, He, Vau, He; ADNI, Adonai; IIAI, Yiai (this Name has the same Numerical value in Hebrew as the Name EL); and AHIH, Eheieh. The Hebrew versicle which surrounds it is from Psalm lxxii. 9: ‘The Ethiopians shall kneel before Him, His enemies shall lick the dust.’

Second Pentacle of Saturn
Of great value when meeting with adversaries in business or competitions of any kind. It should be carried when looking for work or negotiating any financial contracts.

This Pentacle is of great value against adversities; and of especial use in repressing the pride of the Spirits.

This is the celebrated SATOR Squar, the most perfect existing form of double acrostic, as far as the arrangement of the letters is concerned; it is repeatedly mentioned in the records of mediæval Magic. It will be seen at a glance that it is a square of five, giving twenty-five letters, which, added to the unity, gives twenty six, the numerical value of IHVH. The Hebrew versicle surrounding it is taken from Psalm lxxii. 8. This passage consists also of exactly twenty-five letters, and its total numerical value (considering the final letters with increased numbers), added to that of the Name Elohim, is exactly equal to the total numerical value of the twenty-five letters in the Square.

Third Pentacle of Saturn
Good for protection against any plots made by others & for defense against evil spirits.

This should be made within the Magical Circle, and it is good for use at night when thou invokest the Spirits of the nature of Saturn.

The characters at the ends of the rays of the Mystic Wheel are Magical Characters of Saturn. Surrounding it are the Names of the Angels:–Omeliel, Anachiel, Arauchiah, and Anazachia, written in Hebrew.

Fourth Pentacle of Saturn
This seal is liked by those who wish to impose their will upon others. It also alleged to bring good news to the possessor.

This Pentacle is of great value and utility for striking terror into the Spirits. Wherefore, upon its being shown to them they submit, and kneeling upon the earth before it, they obey.

The Hebrew letters within the square are the four great Names of God which are written with four letters:–IHVH, Yod, He, Vau, He; ADNI, Adonai; IIAI, Yiai (this Name has the same Numerical value in Hebrew as the Name EL); and AHIH, Eheieh. The Hebrew versicle which surrounds it is from Psalm lxxii. 9: ‘The Ethiopians shall kneel before Him, His enemies shall lick the dust.’

Fifth Pentacle of Saturn
Protects the home, and guards all treasures & possessions one may own.

This Pentacle defendeth those who invoke the Spirits of Saturn during the night; and chaseth away the Spirits which guard treasures.

The Hebrew letters in the angles of the Cross are those of the Name IHVH. Those in the angles of the Square form ALVH, Eloah. Round the four sides of the Square are the Names of the Angels:–Arehanah, Rakhaniel, Roelhaiphar, and Noaphiel. The versicle is:–‘A Great God, a Mighty, and a Terrible.’–Deut. x. 17.

Sixth Pentacle of Saturn
Pronounce an enemy’s name and repeat ‘Set thou a wicked one to be ruler over him and let satan stand at his right hand’ to cause the foe to be possessed by demons.

Around this Pentacle is each Name symbolised as it should be. The person against whom thou shalt pronounce it shall be obsessed by Demons.

It is formed from Mystical Characters of Saturn. Around it is written in Hebrew: ‘Set thou a wicked one to be ruler over him, and let Satan stand at his right hand.’

Seventh Pentacle of Saturn
This Talisman is reputed to make others listen and tremble before the words of the wearer.

This Pentacle is fit for exciting earthquakes, seeing that the power of each order of Angels herein invoked is sufficient to make the whole Universe tremble.

Within the Pentacle are the Names of the Nine Orders of Angels, those of six of them in ordinary Hebrew Characters, and the remainder in the letters which are known as ‘The Passing of the River.’ These Nine Orders are:–1. CHAIOTH HA-QADESCH, Holy Living Creatures; 2. AUPHANIM, Wheels; 3. ARALIM, Thrones; 4. CHASCHMALIM, Brilliant Ones; 5. SERAPHIM, Fiery Ones; 6. MELAKIM, Kings; 7. ELOHIM, Gods; 8. BENI ELOHIM, Sons of the Elohim; 9. KERUBIM, Kerubim. The versicle is from Psalm xviii. 7:–‘Then the earth shook and trembled, the foundations of the hills also moved and were shaken, because He was wroth.’

Seven pentacles consecrated to Jupiter

First Pentacle of Jupiter
A Talisman for acquiring treasure and for gaining business.

This serveth to invoke the Spirits of Jupiter, and especially those whose Names are written around the Pentacle, among whom Parasiel is the Lord and Master of Treasures, and teacheth how to become possessor of places wherein they are.

This Pentacle is composed of Mystical Characters of Jupiter. Around it are the Names of the Angels:–Netoniel, Devachiah, Tzedeqiah, and Parasiel, written in Hebrew.

Second Pentacle of Jupiter
The Magical Seal for acquiring glory, honors, riches, and tranquility of mind.

This is proper for acquiring glory, honours, dignities, riches, and all kinds of good, together with great tranquillity of mind; also to discover Treasures and chase away the Spirits who preside over them. It should be written upon virgin paper or parchment, with the pen of the swallow and the blood of the screech-owl.

In the centre of the Hexagram are the letters of the Name AHIH, Eheieh; in the upper and lower angles of the same, those of the Name AB, the Father; in the remaining angles those of the Name IHVH. I believe the letters outside the Hexagram in the re-entering angles to be intended for those of the first two words of the versicle, which is taken from Psalm cxii. 3:–‘Wealth and Riches are in his house, and his righteousness endureth for ever.’

Third Pentacle of Jupiter
Defends & protects against any enemy & against any evil spirits which may linger near one’s person or home.

This defendeth and protecteth those who invoke and cause the Spirits to come. When they appear show unto them this Pentacle, and immediately they will obey.

In the upper left corner is the Magical Seal of Jupiter with the letters of the Name IHVH. In the others are the Seal of the Intelligence of Jupiter, and the Names Adonai and IHVH.–Around it is the versicle from Psalm cxxv. 1:–‘A Song of degrees. They that trust in IHVH shall be as Mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.’

Fourth Pentacle of Jupiter
Serves to acquire wealth and honor.

It serveth to acquire riches and honour, and to possess much wealth. Its Angel is Bariel. It should be engraved upon silver in the day and hour of Jupiter when he is in the Sign Cancer.

Above the Magical Sigil is the Name IH, Iah. Below it are the Names of the Angels Adoniel and Bariel, the letters of the latter being arranged about a square of four compartments. Around is the versicle from Psalm cxii. 3:–‘Wealth and Riches are in his house, and his righteousness endureth for ever.

Fifth Pentacle of Jupiter
This hath great power to assure visions.

This hath great power. It serveth for assured visions. Jacob being armed with this Pentacle beheld the ladder which reached unto heaven.

The Hebrew letters within the Pentacle are taken from the five last words of the versicle which surrounds it, each of which contains five letters. These are, then, recombined so as to form certain Mystical Names. The versicle is taken from Ezekiel i. 1:–‘ As I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of Elohim.’ In my opinion the versicle should only consist of the five last words thereof, when the anachronism of Jacob using a Pentacle with a sentence from Ezekiel will no longer exist.

Sixth Pentacle of Jupiter
Protects form all earthly dangers.

It serveth for protection against all earthly dangers, by regarding it each day devoutedly, and repeating the versicle which surroundeth it. Thus shalt thou never perish.

The four Names in the Arms of the Cross are Seraph, Kerub, Ariel, and Tharsis; the four Rulers of the Elements. The versicle is from Psalm xxii. 16, 17:-‘ They pierced my hands and my feet, I may tell all my bones.’

Seventh Pentacle of Jupiter
It has great power against poverty.

It hath great power against poverty, if thou considerest it with devotion, repeating the versicle. It serveth furthermore to drive away those Spirits who guard treasures, and to discover the same.

Mystical Characters of Jupiter with the verse:–‘Lifting up the poor out of the mire, and raising the needy from the dunghill, that he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.’

Seven pentacles consecrated to Mars

First Pentacle of Mars
The Talisman for gaining courage, ambition, enthusiasm & all physical accomplishments.

It is proper for invoking Spirits of the Nature of Mars, especially those which are written in the Pentacle.

Mystical Characters of Mars, and the Names of the four Angels:–Madimiel, Bartzachiah, Eschiel, and Ithuriel written in Hebrew around the Pentacle.

Second Pentacle of Mars
Serves with great success against all kinds of diseases when it is applied to afflicted parts.

This Pentacle serveth with great success against all kinds of diseases, if it be applied unto the afflicted part.

The letter Hé, in the angles of the Hexagram. Within the same the Names IHVH, IHSHVH Yeheshuah (the mystic Hebrew Name for Joshua or Jesus, formed of the ordinary IHVH with the letter SH placed therein as emblematical of the Spirit), and Elohim. Around it is the sentence, John i. 4:–‘In Him was life, and the life was the light of man.’ This may be adduced as an argument of the greater antiquity of the first few mystical verses of the Gospel of St. John.

Third Pentacle of Mars
This seal is of value in resisting one’s enemies, and for exciting wrath, discord & hostility among others.

It is of great value for exciting war, wrath, discord, and hostility; also for resisting enemies, and striking terror into rebellious Spirits; the Names of God the All Powerful are therein expressly marked.

The Letters of the Names Eloah and Shaddai. In the Centre is the great letter Vau, the signature of the Qabalistic Microprosopus. Around is the versicle from Psalm lxxvii. 13:–‘Who is so great a God as our Elohim?’

Fourth Pentacle of Mars
Of great power towards bringing victory or vindication in an argument or battle of any kind.

It is of great virtue and power in war, wherefore without doubt it will give thee victory.

In the Centre is the great Name Agla; right and left, the letters of the Name IHVH; above and below, El. Round it is the versicle from Psalm cx. 5:–‘The Lord at thy right hand shall wound even Kings in the day of His Wrath.’

Fifth Pentacle of Mars
Causes all demons to obey the wishes of the possessor of this powerful seal.

Write thou this Pentacle upon virgin parchment or paper, because it is terrible unto the Demons, and at its sight and aspect they will obey thee, for they cannot resist its presence.

Around the figure of the Scorpion is the word HVL. The versicle is from Psalm xci. 13:–‘Thou shalt go upon the lion and adder, the young lion and the dragon shalt thou tread under thy feet.’

Sixth Pentacle of Mars
The owner of this cannot be harmed. If attacked, the foe’s weapon shall turn against him.

It hath so great virtue that being armed therewith, if thou art attacked by any one, thou shalt neither be injured nor wounded when thou fightest with him, and his own weapons shall turn against him.

Around the eight points of the radii of the Pentacle are the words ‘Elohim qeber, Elohim hath covered (or protected),’ written in the Secret Alphabet of Malachim, or the writing of the Angels. The versicle is from Psalm xxxvii. 15:–‘Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bow shall be broken.’

Seventh Pentacle of Mars
The possessor pronounces the Divine Names of El and Yiai to bring confusion to one’s enemies.

Write thou this upon virgin parchment or paper with the blood of a bat, in the day and hour of Mars; and uncover it within the Circle, invoking the Demons whose Names are therein written; and thou shalt immediately see hail and tempest.

In the centre of the Pentacle are the Divine Names, El and Yiai, which have the same numerical value when written in Hebrew. The Letters in Hebrew, and in the Secret Alphabet called the Celestial, compose the Names of Spirits. Round the Pentacle is:–‘He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land. He smote their vines also, and their fig-trees.’–Psalm cv. 32, 33.

Seven pentacles consecrated to the Sun

First Pentacle of the Sun
The ‘El Shaddai’ talisman which is alleged to bring the possessor all things they may desire

The Countenance of Shaddaï the Almighty, at Whose aspect all creatures obey, and the Angelic Spirits do reverence on bended knees.

This singular Pentacle contains the head of the great Angel Methraton or Metatron, the vice-gerent and representative of Shaddaï, who is called the Prince of Countenances, and the right-hand masculine Cherub of the Ark, as Sandalphon is the left and feminine. ON either side is the Name ‘El Shaddaï.’ Around is written in Latin:’Behold His face and form by Whom all things were made, and Whom all creatures obey.’

Second Pentacle of the Sun
This design serves to repress the pride and arrogance of those who oppose the owner’s wishes & plans.

This Pentacle, and the preceding and following, belong to the nature of the Sun. They serve to repress the pride and arrogance of the Solar Spirits, which are altogether proud and arrogant by their nature.

Mystical characters of the Sun and the Names of the Angels:–Shemeshiel, Paimoniah, Rekhodiah, and Malkhiel.

Third Pentacle of the Sun
Serves to attract renown, glory, riches.

This serveth in addition (to the effects of the two preceding) to acquire Kingdom and Empire, to inflict loss, and to acquire renown and glory, especially through the Name of God, Tetragrammaton, which therein is twelve times contained.

The Name IHVH, twelve times repeated; and a versicle somewhat similar to Daniel iv. 34:–‘My Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom, and my dominion endureth from age unto age.’

Fourth Pentacle of the Sun
Enables the owner to see others as they really are, not as they pretend to be. When the seal in the vicinity of friend or foe, their true thoughts and secret heart will be opened.

This serveth to enable thee to see the Spirits when they appear invisible unto those who invoke them; because, when thou hast uncovered it, they will immediately appear visible.

The Names IHVH, Adonai, are written in the centre in Hebrew; and round the radii in the mystical characters of the ‘Passing of the River.’ The versicle is from Psalm xiii. 3, 4:–‘Lighten mine eyes that I sleep not in death, lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him.’

Fifth Pentacle of the Sun

Characters in the ‘Passing of the River’ Alphabet, forming Spirits’ Names. The versicle is from Psalm xci. 11, 12:–‘He shall give His Angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands.’

Sixth Pentacle of the Sun
Provides invisibility to the possessor at request.

It serveth excellently for the operation of invisibility, when correctly made.

In the centre is the Mystical letter Yod, in the Celestial Alphabet. The three letters in the ‘Passing of the River’ writing, in the Angles of the triangle, form the great Name Shaddaï. The words in the same characters round its three sides are, in my opinion, from Genesis 1. 1:–‘In the beginning the Elohim created,’ etc.; but the characters are sadly mangled in the MSS. The versicle is from Psalms lxix. 23, and cxxxv. 16:–‘Let their eyes be darkened that they see not and make their loins continually to shake. They have eyes and see not.’

Seventh Pentacle of the Sun
This seal reputedly releases one from prison, opening all locks & breaking all fetters which bind one.

If any be by chance imprisoned or detained in fetters of iron, at the presence of this Pentacle, which should be engraved in Gold on the day and hour of the Sun, he will be immediately delivered and set at liberty.

Between the four Arms of the Cross are written the names of the four Rulers of the Elements: Ariel, Seraph, Tharshis, and Cherub.

The seal which excites great passion and desire when shown to another.

When it is only showed unto any person soever, it inciteth and exciteth wonderfully unto love.

Around the central Square arc the Names Elohim, El Gebil, and two other Names which I cannot decipher, and have, therefore, given them as they stand. The characters are those of the ‘Passing of the River.’ The surrounding versicle is from Psalm xxii. 14:–‘My heart is like wax, it is melted in the midst of my bowels.’

This commandeth the Spirits of Mercury, and serveth to open doors in whatever way they may be closed, and nothing it may encounter can resist it.
