Duplicate sextant effects do not stack and will deduct a use from one of the Watchstones.

PoE Simple Sextant Mods

Sextant Mod Rating Tips to run effectively
Areas contain 6 additional packs of Monsters that deal Cold/Fire/Physical/Lightning/Chaos Damage
Players and Monsters take 8% increased Cold/Fire/Physical/Lightning/Chaos Damage
Decent Use any kind of maps. These sextants add more monsters and combine decently with all the other sextants
Areas contain 6 additional packs of Corrupted Vaal Monsters
Players gain an additional Vaal Soul on Kill
Decent
Better if you want a bit more vaal skill uptime in maps. otherwise identical to above
Player's Life and Mana Recovery from Flasks are instant
Areas contain 6 additional packs of Monsters that Heal
Decent Use any kind of maps. These sextants add more monsters and combine decently with all the other sextants.  This will mess up your "enduring" mana flasks if you are using those, so you might want to reroll this in that case.
Magic Maps contain 3 additional packs of Magic Monsters
Rare Maps contain 3 additional Rare Monster packs
Normal Maps contain 3 additional packs of Normal Monsters
Good
Use rare maps. Rare monsters have way more quantity and rarity than magic or normal monsters. Combines well with other sextants where you want more rare monsters like nemesis sextant
Players deal 8% increased Damage for each Poison on them
Players have 4% increased Movement Speed for each Poison on them
Areas contain 6 additional packs of Poisonous Monsters
Decent
Use any kind of maps. These sextants add more monsters and combine decently with all the other sextants. Be careful here. Use upgraded "soul of shakari" pantheon to make yourself poison immune or run a poison removal flask if you have problems with this. 
20% increased Magic Pack Size Good Any maps which have decent pack size on them. More magic monsters is good. Combines okayish with other good sextants
Areas are inhabited by an additional Invasion Boss Very bad reroll
Players cannot take Reflected Damage
Areas contain 3 additional Packs with Mirrored Rare Monsters
Good Maps with reflect/any maps depending on your build

Very good if your build cannot do reflect maps. More rares is good too.
Maps have 20% Quality
Unique Bosses deal 20% increased Damage
Very bad Reroll. 
Areas contain 20 additional Clusters of Mysterious Barrels Good Any maps.

There are different types of barrels and you only know what kind it is once you enter the map and break them. Regardless all of them are at least decent. Beware of explosive barrels though. In tier 16 maps if the map mod has -max res they can one shot you.
Quality bonus of Maps also applies to Rarity of Items found
Unique Bosses have 20% increased Life
Very bad Reroll. 
Rogue Exiles deal 20% increased Damage
Rogue Exiles have 20% increased Maximum Life
Rogue Exiles drop 2 additional Jewels
Areas are inhabited by 2 additional Rogue Exiles
Bad Reroll.

You CAN farm for unique jewels with this sextant mods using "waiting in ambush" prophecy, using maps with more rogue exiles, rolling strongboxes with "guarded by a rogue exile" if using monstrous treasure/bountiful traps prophecies too. I don't recommend it. I tried it in blight for a couple of maps and it was a horrible experience for so little return. Just getting all the waiting in ambush prophecies will take you a while if you don't roll your own prophecies/have unlimited stash space.
Unique Bosses drop 1 additional Unique Item Bad I reroll this although I am not sure if the unique item drop can potentially ignore league restrictions. That is a chance at a headhunter, but awakening bonus gives a chance at that too. So with lots of uniques dropping from bosses it is hard to say which of these bonuses rolled which unique.
Areas contain additional Monsters that Convert when Killed
Contains 6 packs of monsters
Decent/Bad Reroll.

This is decent if you want to trigger beyond. The monsters(little totem guys) themselves seem to have very little IIQ/IIR so they won't help much by themselves. You should definitely reroll this if you have a PC that can't handle lots of calculations on screen.
Areas contain 6 additional packs of Corrupted Vaal Monsters
Area has 50% chance to contain Gifts of the Sacrificed per Sacrifice Fragment used
Area has 50% chance to contain Gifts of the Red Queen per Mortal Fragment used
Decent Add vaal fragments. Do not use mortal fragments. The chests will drop some vaal orbs and now seem to have a decent chance to drop maps too(although corrupted)
Areas contain 6 additional packs of Corrupted Vaal Monsters
Items dropped by Corrupted Vaal Monsters in Areas have 15% chance to be Corrupted
Decent Corrupted items have a decent chance to drop either 6 socketed or 6 linked. Sometimes maps will drop corrupted too but that is pretty rare.
Areas contain an additional Tormented Betrayer
The First 3 Possessed Monsters drop an additional Rusted Scarab
Decent Use a possessed foe prophecy(pretty cheap this league). add rouge exiles zana mod. if the prophecy procs you get 3 scarabs definitely, if it does not I don't think you are missing out much. Using ghosting mechanics is a pain only to get 3 rusted scarabs which are pretty cheap this league.
25% increased Quantity of Items found in Unidentified Maps
Found Items drop Identified in Identified Maps
12% increased Pack Size in Unidentified Maps
Very good Run with unidentified rare maps. There is a very noticeable amount fo difference in drops if you run unIDd maps. It is also very easily stackable with all good "special" map/sextant modifiers.

There are some people who deliberately run identified maps when this sextant rolls. They will pair this with more quant and good sextants, so there will be a lot of rare item drops. These guys have a pretty strict and customized filter so only good base rares will show up identified. When I talked to someone(the only one I could find) doing this strat in blight league, he said he would average around 1 ex from the rare drops and at worst it would be 50c. I don't recommend this to normal players.
Areas are alluring good This mod adds a +10% experience gain modifier to the maps. If you want the exp keep this mod. However, this is very very rare. I would save this for high tier maps if I want to utilize this.
Areas contain an additional Tormented Graverobber
The First 3 Possessed Monsters drop an additional Unique Item
Very bad Reroll
