There has been a lot of talk over the last few years about Jupiter. Certainly, I LOVE Jupiter. I made it the focus of my book, I belong to an order dedicated to Jupiter. Jupiter is awesome in the truest sense of the word.
That awesomeness can however yield two problems.
The first is that Jupiter can provide more than you can currently handle. Too many opportunities may confuse or even seize-up your ability to choose a direction to head. Marketers call this the Paralysis of Choice: too many brands and lines of a product will actually lower sales of the product overall because people can’t choose. Too much growth in a business too quickly can force you to take expensive steps to expand production or hire employees that you were not ready to make yet.
The second problem that some people have is that of stepping through the doors that open for you. You may have done a working for more wealth. Jupiter may have provided you with an idea or an opportunity in the form of a side business or second job. The problem is that if you have a full time job, watch 12 hours of TV a week, Play Video Games a lot, and meet with friends every Sunday to play Dungeons and Dragons; it will take a major overhaul of your lifestyle and priorities to take advantage of that opportunity (or a girlfriend, or just growing up a bit…

When sorting through options and embarking on projects, this is the perfect solution.
If you are worried about the presence of the malifics in your life, I will simply point out that they are already there, you are simply taking the reins and steering their influence. After meditation, the next most important ability of a sorcerer is mediation. If you are still bugging out…. well, that’s why Saturdays darkness is followed by Sundays light, and why Tuesadays Martial severity is followed by Wednesadays Mercurial sagacity.
So go deck out your temple in red and black, and get a little severe with yourself and your world. Tie some things down, and beat the crap out what has been ailing you. The ass you kick may be your own…
Just don’t overdo it.
