Note that this only looks at basic essential & accidental dignity! Other factors may come into play.
Saturn dignified by sign (great for talisman)
Jupiter peregrine slow (avoid for talisman)
Mars peregrine (avoid for talisman)
Sun peregrine (avoid for talisman)
Venus dignified by exaltation, triplicity, (great for talisman)
Mercury in detriment fall term (avoid for talisman)
Moon dignified by sign and face (great for talismans)
Moon in the 3rd Face of Cancer, "The 3rd face of Cancer is of the Moon and is a face of hunting, pursing fugitives, of getting goods by war, quarrels and contention among men." Johannes Angelus "In the third face is a hunter carrying a horn and sling, with dogs running in front and behind him. He blows his horn while he hunts birds." Giordano Bruno
As noted the 36 decan/faces are a complete picture of reality, containing all possible interactions in the sub-lunary realm, not simply a shopping cart full of possible talismans and effects we can order up at our whim to fulfill our wishes.
In the Buddhist cosmology there are 6 worlds in the realm of form: (1) the hell worlds, who are possessed by suffering; (2) the world of the pretas, the hungry ghosts, who are perpetually in hunger and desire; (3) the world of the animals, which is generally characterized as being of ignorance, but also by the "law of the jungle"; (4) the human world, of mixed suffering and happiness; (5) the world of the ashuras, characterize by struggle, conflict, success and defeat; (6) the world of the devas, the gods, characterized by pleasure and the fulfillment of desires.
This Mansion seems characteristic of the animal realm and the ashura realm, of hunting and struggling, of struggling for power and domination. Personally I've been able to see this in what I call "cat world" which is the interactions of the neighborhood cats. While they all are well fed and housed, they still can't help fighting over territory and dominance. One cat is the king for awhile, until they become tired and a new king arrives. "Long live the king!" We can see very easily this same process taking place in the human realm.
