The Jupiter Exaltation Talisman limited edition is back!
Three weeks ago I received an email from our wandering Astrologer Michael Ofek, finally he was able to find an online connection from the Himalayas…. He told me that there will be another fantastic opportunity to create the Jupiter Talismanic ring and pendant that were sold out.
I was glad since we’ve received many requests from clients who wanted me to recreate these pieces. So, I’ve made all the different parts of the ring and the pendant and waited. It differs from Talisman to Talisman, but In most instances I have around a 40 minutes time window in which there is the optimal star alignment. I usually make all the different parts before and then solder/assemble the pieces together during that time, and meditate/consecrate it for its intended purpose. In that way the Talisman is “born” at that time, and that is the reason I cannot create more than 12-15 pieces each time. Sorry!
So Yesterday, as part of inviting the Jupiter energy to my work, I’ve found myself listening to Isao Tomita’s version of the Planets by the great british composer Gustav Holst while creating these rings and pendants. A great experience!
Here are the details:
The talisman was made on the 12th of November 2013 between 13:21 - 14:12. In this Talisman Jupiter is not only in his Exaltation sign (cancer), but will also be joined again in a complete water trine, this time with the Sun (Scorpio) and the Moon (Pisces). Jupiter and the Moon are in "mutual reception" (which means they are in each other’s sign). This alignment is extremely powerful for making a Talisman. Not only is the Moon fortified as it should be in any Talisman, It is also the ruler of cancer where Jupiter is located in. The Moon supports Jupiter harmoniously (trine aspect) and is reciprocally supported by him.
In the ancient magical text "The book of Alexander" this combination (Jupiter in Cancer and the Moon aspecting him from Pisces) is used under the name "The Seal of Jupiter". The text describes its uses, both physically and circumstantially.
The text says the following:
"How to make the Seal of Jupiter which diminishes weakness and ends physical discomfort and colic of the stomach”
The text continues:
“He who uses it will be loved by all people, who will praise and compliment him. If you have a dispute with an adversary you will be able to dominate him and yet also be on good terms with him. It is powerful in controlling judges and religious men. Whoever uses it will conquer anything he is confronted with, be saved from any danger and even in transactions of great risk he will gain." (Translation - Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold )
This is THE Talisman for success and prosperity, guidance, healing and spiritual truth. Jupiter has always been considered to be the ‘great benefactor’. It is the largest planet in our solar system and presides over the principles of expansion growth and synthesis. Jupiter brings us the gifts of abundance and success, and provides us with spiritual guidance, support and protection.
Jupiter is also the planet that influences the higher faculties of the mind, our ability to synthesize and to have a deep understanding of concepts and experiences.
Because of this, Jupiter rules philosophy, religion (in the open and liberal sense) and spiritual insight. Jupiter also controls moral ethics and justice and our inherent capability to discern between good and bad. People who were born when Jupiter was strong, are always seeking truth, justice and faith in life. They are teachers, visionaries and word spreaders.
In Indian astrology the name for Jupiter is 'guru' which means guide or teacher. Jupiter is a guide for wisdom and expansion of consciousness, it lifts our spirit with joy, enthusiasm and optimism, gives us a feeling of the magic in life and the gentle guiding hand of fate. Most important, Jupiter's influence helps us trust in our path and above all have hope!
The magus Cornelius Agrippa writes on talismans for Jupiter:
“...From the operations of Jupiter, they made for prolongation of life...increaseth felicity, riches, honor and confereth benevolence and prosperity, and frees from enemies, gives a religious and glorious life, and advancement of fortune.”
Talisman Design Explanation
The central image in this talisman was taken from the Greek and Roman mythology. It is the Aquila - the Roman/Greek symbol of Zeus/Jupiter’s powerful eagle who served him as a messenger. It is a replica of an ancient Roman coin from my private collection. The symbols on the outside ring are some of the ancient magic seals of Jupiter. The three symbols in gold are of course the symbols of Jupiter the Sun and the Moon.
Ring Design Explanation
The central image on top of the ring is the astrological symbol of Jupiter surrounded by yellow sapphires - the “traditional stone” of Jupiter. The symbols on both sides of the ring are ancient magic seals of Jupiter. And on both sides of the ring there are the symbols of the Moon and the Sun in gold.
