Venus talisman election today

I missed the morning version but this afternoon from 3.23 pm to 4.15pm an effective Venus talisman can be made in Austin Tx.

WIthin that time sketch a woman holding a fruit in one hand and a mirror or comb in the other with the sign of Venus and her name(s) and write across it an intent suited to Venus such as "for love" or "for works of beauty". Light a candle and a nice incense (if available on short notice) and recite the Hymn to Venus to dedicate it:

HEAV'NLY, illustrious, laughter-loving queen,
Sea-born, night-loving, of an awful mien;
Crafty, from whom necessity first came,
Producing, nightly, all-connecting dame:
Tis thine the world with harmony to join,
For all things spring from thee, O pow'r divine.
The triple Fates are rul'd by thy decree,
And all productions yield alike to thee:
Whate'er the heav'ns, encircling all contain,

Earth fruit-producing, and the stormy main,
Thy sway confesses, and obeys thy nod,
Awful attendant of the brumal God:
Goddess of marriage, charming to the sight,
Mother of Loves, whom banquetings delight;
Source of persuasion, secret, fav'ring queen,
Illustrious born, apparent and unseen:
Spousal, lupercal, and to men inclin'd,
Prolific, most-desir'd, life-giving., kind:
Great sceptre-bearer of the Gods, 'tis thine,
Mortals in necessary bands to join;
And ev'ry tribe of savage monsters dire
In magic chains to bind, thro' mad desire.
Come, Cyprus-born, and to my pray'r incline,
Whether exalted in the heav'ns you shine,
Or pleas'd in Syria's temple to preside,
Or o'er th' Egyptian plains thy car to guide,
Fashion'd of gold; and near its sacred flood,
Fertile and fam'd to fix thy blest abode;
Or if rejoicing in the azure shores,
Near where the sea with foaming billows roars,
The circling choirs of mortals, thy delight,
Or beauteous nymphs, with eyes cerulean bright,
Pleas'd by the dusty banks renown'd of old,
To drive thy rapid, two-yok'd car of gold;
Or if in Cyprus with thy mother fair,
Where married females praise thee ev'ry year,
And beauteous virgins in the chorus join,
Adonis pure to sing and thee divine;
Come, all-attractive to my pray'r inclin'd,
For thee, I call, with holy, reverent mind.


A less pagan alternative is to read the Song of Solomon aloud.

If you aren't able to dedicate the image in that time, just make the image and you can dedicate later during an hour of Venus, the important thing is the creation of the talisman itself in the elected time.

An alternative to drawing a picture is to draw out the kamea for Venus:

I was glad I saw this post in time, I was just looking for a good Venus election. This actually worked for my location from ~3:12PM - ~3:50PM. I didn't see the entry until 2:30, but it gave me time to at least do a paper talisman =)
