Seven Herbs in the Packet Go --to Protect Your Money when Jupiter's Slow

Jupiter Retrograde Protection Money Packet

I first posted this article in 2013 and I am reposting it with current astrological information so that you can make use of it this week.  There are two new paragraphs that you may find useful.  I’ve put the word “new” beside that information if you have already read this article and only want the updated astro goodies.

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.”

NEW!  Jupiter retrogrades on Sunday/Monday (depending upon your time zone) 5/6 February in the sign of Libra, appearing to move backward until June 9th 2017.  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.  Libra is the sign of beauty, harmony, and negotiation — and that is exactly what you should be focusing on within yourself — acknowledge beauty EVERY day, drink in harmony and appreciate what you have EVERY day, consider how, within yourself, you can learn to negotiate better so that when Jupiter turns direct, you will have new goodies in your mental tool box — take advantage of learning, reading, studying — you won’t regret it!

The Jupiter Retrogade Protection Money Packet presented in this article 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.

To hold your packet together, you will need red thread. This picture also shows a lucky dandelion root as it is split into three sections.

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.

jupitersgaincandleNEW!  This year I  hand rolled a Jupiter Candle — beginning with an orange core for opportunity cloaked with a purple outer covering.  Orange and Purple are Jupiter colors, vibrating to opportunity and the greatest good.  I dressed my candle with three magickal powders — Jupiter, the Sun, and Venus.  I also used Universal Fluid Condenser to ramp up the power.  I can burn the candle either on a Jupiter Day in a Jupiter Hour before the retrograde — or I can place the candle on top of my protection packet and burn the candle as Jupiter stations and turns retrograde — which is 10:52 PM Pacific time on the 5th/ 1:09 AM Eastern Standard time on the 6th of January.  I could wait and burn the candle mid-cycle when I’m feeling a little nervous if something appears to be stalling that I need (again using the Jupiter Day and Jupiter Planetary Hour), or I could burn the candle for slingshot magick (my term for doing magick as a planet stations and turns direct) on the 9th of June at 10:03 AM Pacific Time/ 7:03 AM Eastern Standard Time.

This Jupiter retrograde, embrace the benefits of spiritual growth and the recognition and appreciation of beauty.  May Harmony embrace you each and every day!

Fall Equinox Magick – The Season of Closure #Mabon

Mabon – Fall Equinox – The Season of Closure

by Silver RavenWolf
copyright 2016

The power of Mabon unfolds when the Sun is at 1 degree Libra.  This year, Mabon (Fall Equinox) occurs on Thursday, the 22nd of September at 10:21 AM EDT/ 7:21 AM PDT.  A few hours earlier, Mercury turns direct.  The third quarter Moon is in Gemini in Her Disseminating (Harvest) phase.  The Corn Mother, whether she is called Selu, Demeter, Brighid, the Cailleach, or Maighdean-Bhuana rules the Autumn Equinox.  She brings good fortune, bountiful harvest, and bright blessings to all who acknowledge Her; particularly gifting those who have worked hard throughout the season to bring joy, wisdom, and delight to the creatures of the earth and its inhabitants.

This is the Season of Closure, where the dramas, projects, and lingering events that have unfolded since last November (when the astrological Samhain marks the new Pagan year) demand completion.  The two weeks before Mabon you may feel the urge to finish any number of issues, whether they brought you joy or sadness.  From the conclusion of a significant project to the relief of finally shutting down the detritus of something unpleasant, Mabon offers you the opportunity to close it up, lock the door, and walk away.

With Mercury turning direct on Mabon you have a fantastic opportunity for swinging the wand of forward motion in the direction you desire.  The hours when Mercury stations before turning direct build power that is expended at the moment the planet shifts and turns direct.  I call this window and the subsequent release of energy, the opportunity for sling-shot magick!  The trick is to begin with the release energy already available.  This includes the harvest phase of the year and the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse that occurs on 16 September at 3:05 PM EDT/12:05 PM PDT, along with the recognition of the power that Mercury has attained during its retrograde period where the focus was on building within.  Prep yourself and your life to let go of what isn’t needed, wanted, or helpful in the week before the Fall Equinox.  I realize that many of you have already been doing this in the last several months.  I read all the comments on my FB posts, and several of them mention cleaning out garages, move of house, letting go of negative employment, etc.  These previous actions will serve you well, and what you do now?  The sweet icing on the cake!  A full house cleaning between the 16th and the 21st,, preparing the home for winter/summer (depending upon your location), harvesting/prep for planting (again, depending upon your location), reviewing payment plans and finances for upcoming holiday spending, weeding out extraneous projects that munch through your valuable time, etc.  Perhaps you would like to take the time this year and make a corn dolly – the ultimate symbol of the season.

As a reminder, Mercury will again retrograde during the Yule holiday.  I hear the groans.  Yup!  The planet enters its storm on Thursday the 15th of December (where you will actually notice the sluggish energy and more than one hysterical fallout) and retrogrades on Monday, the 19th of December.  My advice?  Keep your calendar cleaner than usual and shop EARLY.  I mention this here because what you don’t take care of this retrograde period (which is right now), is going to come back and bite you.  Don’t put tasks off – tie them up this Mercury go-around so that during the major holidays you will be golden.

Mabon is the perfect time to blend with nature and give thanks for Her support of human life.  A walk in the woods, a visit to a field or orchard, or performing a meditation in your garden are all positive actions that will uplift the heart and guide a clearer mind to better future choices.  Put your hands on the earth, run energy into the soil, feast your eyes on the true glory of what is already there!

Let go of the whiney-baby pissy pants shit and move forward.

Life is short.

You are here to bring joy!

You are here to create!

Celebrate!

Mabon!

The Wheel is turning ever forward
Whisper thee your act of closure
Fill the cauldron, light the fire
Cast the magick ever higher!
Find the laughter, make ye merry
Mother’s heartbeat, act of Fairy
Magick swirls and eddies onward
Field of change is sweetly honored
Golden glow and autumn’s kiss
Season’s end demands all this.

Many blessings this autumn season!
