Jupiter Retrograde Protection Money Packet
by Silver RavenWolf
Many years ago a magickal friend of mine said, “Jupiter’s going to retrograde this week. Be sure you have money in the bank, or protected somewhere.”
“Why?” I asked.
“Because a Jupiter retrograde grows from within — it works on what you already have. If you don’t have any money put away, the retrograde seems to be harder to deal with.”
“Does the money have to be in the bank?”
“It’s a good idea to have money there; but, if you can’t do that, you should take the highest denomination of paper money you have in your home, work some protection and good fortune magick with it, and then put your working in a secure place.”
“Like a jar or your wallet?”
“Yes; but, the rule is — don’t spend the magick money until after the retrograde is over…and it is better if, after the retrograde is finished, you give the money to charity as your action of gratitude for the protection and good fortune you received.”
Jupiter retrogrades this week on Wednesday/Thursday (depending upon your time zone) in the sign of Cancer, appearing to move backward until 6 March 2014. Regardless of Jupiter’s direction, this planet always carries the title of “the Great Benefic”. The difference with the retrograde is that the good fortune energies come from within. A Jupiter retrograde is wonderful for the soul, allowing us to heighten our spiritual vibrations, striving ever forward for healing, wholeness and harmony. Opportunities that unfold during a Jupiter retrograde are usually the result of our thoughts, actions, and words in the past — now graciously unfolding to touch our lives in amazing ways. Jupiter retrograde also gives a window of opportunity to restore the self as well as relationships with others. With Venus in Capricorn at the same time — material Do-It-Yourself-Projects that involve restoration energy can also do very well. As Jupiter is exalted in Cancer, this is not a bad placement for the planet. You’ll probably see more focus on holiday dinners, gathering the family for celebrations, motherhood, politics and how it affects your family, real estate and how it affects the family unit, and anything connected with water in the home. Granted — this is an extremely generalized list.
The Jupiter Retrogade Protection Money Packet is designed to guard your finances, income, savings, etc., during the Jupiter retrograde period. It is very easy to make and can be put together in only a few minutes. There are seven herbs, all with Jupiter correspondences, although some of the herbs listed, like dandelion root, have dual associations. These herbs are: Sassafras, Clove, White Sage, Nutmeg, Cinquefoil, Hyssop, and Dandelion Root. In a Jupiter planetary hour, blend the herbs together in a small bowl, whispering an affirmative statement of your choice. If you are lucky enough to have a three-pronged dandelion root — leave it as it is to include whole in your packet.
Use the highest denomination of paper money you have in the house to make your packet. Fold the top of the bill down, and the sides in — as shown in the picture. Place your herbs and the dandelion root on the money. Blend the energies of the herbs together by softly blowing on them — visualizing them awakening and blending to your purpose.
After you have folded and wrapped your packet with the red thread, dress your money packet with Jupiter Oil. If Jupiter Oil doesn’t feel right to you, use an oil or perfume of your choice. The oil pictured below includes the same ingredients as the money packet, with the addition of Jojoba carrier and Honeysuckle fragrance.
You can add additional spellwork, such as a ritual of your choice, or you can simply secret your packet away in a drawer, special money box, a money jar, or in your wallet until Jupiter turns direct in March. At that time, open the packet and scatter the herbs to the wind, thanking the spirits for your protection and good fortune. You can spend the money, give it to charity, or purchase something nice for a friend or family member.
This Jupiter retrograde, embrace the benefits of spiritual thinking — love, joy, and laughter are the most important energies of all.
