Planetary Characters of Albertus Magnus

Leipzig University Library Manuscript Cod.Mag.72 is another treasure for the astral magic researcher, with abundant examples of seals, diagrams and characters, which will be reproduced here in a few articles. 

Alberti Magni Tractatus von den 12 himmlischen Zeichen und ihren Sigillis, von den 12 himmlischen Zeichen und ihren Characteribus und denn von den 7 Planeten ihren magischen Ringen, samt ihren großen Heimlichkeiten, Kräften und Nutzen, letzlich von denen speculis magicis mit zugehörigen Instrumenten und Sigillen nebst dessen hohen Gebrauch, omnia ad laudem Dei. 

Or: Albert the Great`s Treatise of the 12 heavenly signs and their seals, of the 12 heavenly signs and their characters and of the seven planets and their magical rings together with their secrets, virtues and uses and lastly of the Speculis Magicis (Magical Mirror) and its  associated instruments and seals most high use, all to the glory of God. 

The Third Chapter (fols.10r-16r) is concerned with the seven planetary rings. 

Unfortunately I have no skill in transcribing or translating the cursive 18th century German, but let`s hope that someone will shed some light on the text in the hopefully-not-so-distant future.
