Jupiter and Inequality.

Hey y'all,

We're having ourselves a cocktail party which is ostensibly about Jupiter....but really seems to be about power. Jupiter being a particular manifestation of that principle has been seen and experienced as vicious, benevolent, cruel, graceful, jealous, magnanimous, but always Powerful. All these other qualities have more, from what I've seen, to do with the perspective of a person at one end or the other of the power wielded.

I don't think Jupiter is a person. The image is a stand in for ease of connection. Jupiter is a conscious force of nature.

Jupiter does not have feelings. It's beyond human experience.  A bolt of lightning contains no sentiment, and neither does the electricity that powers a home. Power has no sentiment. Wealth is a stand-in for power, and cares not who possesses it. It cares not if it is used benevolently or otherwise, only that it is used and expressed.

Make your offerings, and make your virtue like that of Jupiter's. As you tune in, you'll find it's virtue expressed more in your own life. See your hermetic axioms.

Jupiter is a God, in truth, of Power, and the grace and benevolence he had been said to possess are often luxuries of the powerful. The same with his vanities and abuses of power. Power requires one thing only, and that is expression. As brother RO mentioned, Genghis Khan accomplished an amazing series of feats.....and he was a goddamn maniac, responsible for so much murder he caused climate change. He lived a long and likely joyous life, full of riches and song. Is that fair? Of course not. There is no such thing. Good and evil are entirely matters of perspective--all things are One thing,  hermeticists. Remember. Stratification in society is a matter of culture, and has little to do with the natural forces that drive being.

Don't sir arounf waiting for the rich to become fair.  That is foolish....instead, act with power. Eat them. Eat their children. You will find you have become them, and depending on how wise you wield power, you will have a similar or different fate. Doesn't matter whether you are good or fair, only if you are wise. Because Power doesn't have morality, and neither does Jupiter.

  3. Well said. And important. Jupiter's power is expansion and increase. Wealth and riches and song precede feasting, and sometimes follow feasting... but they are rarely expressions of sorrow and loss, either way.

Quick overview of Simple Spagyric Technique

The following is a simple rundown for creating Spagyric tinctures and Elixirs, from the manuscript 'Book of the Blossoming Flower." I wrote it so that there would be a baseline, unobfuscated understanding of how to make Spagyric products with extremely basic tools. I posted something similar earlier, but without explaining much as far as how the steps relate to the classic alchemical progression. So, here we are! Making a Spagyric Tincture 1.Take up your plant, and on the Day/Hour corresponding to the energy you wish to refine (Planet, Element, or Sign.) Chop the plant into fine pieces on your cutting board, beginning the Mortificatio stage. Sunrise on the Day corresponding to a planet is best-for astrological forces. I had success capturing the Astrological powers by beginning the work when the Sign is in the Ascendant, preferably during an Elemental Tide that corresponds to the Triplicity the Sign is associated with. For Elemental powers, I have found that beginning the w

Bullshit Siddhis

Nsala malongo, So.....powers. They exist. You work your alchemy, and they start popping up. It isn't what you expect. It's not like the comics. Subtle things happen. You get a little something here, a big something there. Some of them appear useless at first. Some years ago, after work in the upper cinnabar field, I gained the dubiously awesome ability to see a sort of spirit double floating around people. At first I was BEYOND stoked, and thought I was well on my way toward ascension from my normal state into a vicious and powerful spiritual overlord, as was foretold. By me. When I was like, fourteen. Then, after the wonder wore off, I realized that this was absolutely useless. The double gave me no information about the person, no power to manipulate myself or the other. It was just there. So. Countless hours of heat and concentration, and the end result was this? Of course it *was* useful in the long-run, as a mark of my developing spiritual s

Hoodoo and Palo Mayombe

This is an article I wrote for the Lemba Congo American Society for the Preservation of Palo Mayombe (or simply the Society, as we call it, because that's a whole lot of name) that addresses heating and cooling spirits, and the links of tradition and approach between Hoodoo and Palo Mayombe.    There is a way of thinking about reality--and learning to interact with it--that empowers all of the Congo-rooted magical systems currently alive here in the West. Having years of experience as a conjurer in the Hoodoo tradition here in America, and learning from an experienced Tata the methods of Palo Mayombe as an Engueyo,  I continually am finding parallels between the two. There are two ideas in particular that stand out that I wanted to discuss. Heating and Cooling Spirits In Hoodoo, we "heat" a spirit to great activity using herbs and roots and powders, and "cool" a spirit using water and herbs and roots as well. The concept of heating and cooling a spirit
