The Nature of Jupiter

”And as for Jupiter… finally someone has called it like we should all be seeing it. That’s an astral Manhattan skyline in the background. Praying to Jupiter has always struck me as waving a little flag as the Queen goes by. This is a god of kings and Rothschilds. It is Jupiter that allows Wall Street criminals to avoid jail and have you foot the bill for their crimes. That’s what kings do. Few forms embody having different laws for the wealthy than the rest of us quite like Jupiter.’ Gordon White, Runesoup

I adore Gordon and think that his approach to practical Sorcery is spot on. In this case though I do disagree with him on the nature of Jupiter. Since Jupiter is the main Patron of my Financial Sorcery Book, and has blessed me quite abundantly, I wanted to comment a little on the matter.

Jupiter is not only accessible to the ruling class. Indeed there are many instances where Jupiter looked out for the welfare and interests of the Plebians in Rome. During the Struggle of the Orders, it was Jupiter that the common people turned to aid them in winning the right to hold office and in politics and priesthood. It was Jupiter that they dedicated a hill that served as their sanctuary during the strike. 

Jupiter is the god of Aristocrats, but is also the god of Justice. As God of Aristocrats I believe that he has an interest in the common good, and preventing abuse of power. He does not suffer Idiots, and I mean this in the original Greek meaning of the word – someone who only has their own self-interest and not a common good. ἴδιος – private or for ones own good. 

Gordon has done a great deal of wonderful work on the economic apocalypse, and is right when he singles out the abuses of the ruling class. The difference between my approach and his is that I and other Jupiterian magicians hope to make changes by partaking in the system and rising within it. As such Jupiter is exactly who you want on your side.

I think that if you hold a “occupy-esque” mind set about the situation: that the wealthy are the bad guys, the poor are the good guys, wealth itself is wrong and should be re-distributed, and that all problems would be solved if everyone decided to live in a Utopian Socialist Collective, that Gordon is correct: Jupiter is probably not the being you want to work with. 

If however you see a happy and comfortable populace with room for growth and prosperity as being ultimately beneficial even to those at the top – than I think Jupiter is your guy. Greed and Self-interest need not be traits of the wealthy, and very often are not. 

In all things, let success be our proof.

Also, since I buy all of Peter Carroll’s books and wanted to spread the word that Gordon put out yesterday: Epoch is being distributed in the US by Weiser Antiquarian. Go Grab a copy.

    As human beings I think it is difficult to fully comprehend amoral forces/consciousness.

    I have been through some hard times, and admit to saying “It’s not fair” many times. I have, however, recently begun to look at my attitudes and see if there’s something there holding me back from success. I have education, so it’s not because of a lack of education that I am underemployed in a job that is far below my capabilities. Yes the economy isn’t the greatest, but that sounds like an excuse and a victim mentality. Since I have looked at all the external factors I can think of, what remains? ME.

    I have ordered “Financial Sorcery” and am expecting it any time. I’m not only looking forward to the information about Jupiter but about attitudes about money. My sense is that this, and attitudes about success in general, is where I need to look.

    In the meantime, I’m finding Jupiter posts in many places as well.
