For March 2009
Greater Key of Solomon
The current chart is a fascinating dual use election. We will be using it to cast both the "Joseph Smith" Jupiter talismans and complete sets of all 7 Jupiter pentacles from the Greater Key of Solomon. Here is information on the Joseph Smith Jupiter Talisman.
Here are the 7 Pentacles of Jupiter from S.L.M. Mather's translation of the Greater Key of Solomon.
Editor's Note.--This Pentacle is composed of Mystical Characters of Jupiter. Around it are the Names of the Angels:--Netoniel, Devachiah, Tzedeqiah, and Parasiel, written in Hebrew.
This is proper for acquiring glory, honours, dignities, riches, and all kinds of good, together with great tranquillity of mind; also to discover Treasures and chase away the Spirits who preside over them. It should be written upon virgin paper or parchment, with the pen of the swallow and the blood of the screech-owl.
Editor's Note.--In the centre of the Hexagram are the letters of the Name AHIH, Eheieh; in the upper and lower angles of the same, those of the Name AB, the Father; in the remaining angles those of the Name IHVH. I believe the letters outside the Hexagram in the re-entering angles to be intended for those of the first two words of the versicle, which is taken from Psalm cxii. 3: --'Wealth and Riches are in his house, and his righteousness endureth for ever.'
This defendeth and protecteth those who invoke and cause the Spirits to come. When they appear show unto them this Pentacle, and immediately they will obey.
Editor's Note.--In the upper left corner is the Magical Seal of Jupiter with the letters of the Name IHVH. In the others are the Seal of the Intelligence of Jupiter, and the Names Adonai and IHVH.-- Around it is the versicle from Psalm cxxv. 1:--'A Song of degrees. They that trust in IHVH shall be as Mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.'
It serveth to acquire riches and honour, and to possess much wealth. Its Angel is Bariel. It should be engraved upon silver in the day and hour of Jupiter when he is in the Sign Cancer.
Editor's Note.--Above the Magical Sigil is the Name IH, Iah. Below it are the Names of the Angels Adoniel and Bariel, the letters of the latter being arranged about a square of four compartments. Around is the versicle from Psalm cxii. 3:--'Wealth and Riches are in his house, and his righteousness endureth for ever.'
This hath great power. It serveth for assured visions. Jacob being armed with this Pentacle beheld the ladder which reached unto heaven.
Editor's Note.--The Hebrew letters within the Pentacle are taken from the five last words of the versicle which surrounds it, each of which contains five letters. These are, then, recombined so as to form certain Mystical Names. The versicle is taken from Ezekiel i. 1:--' As I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of Elohim.' In my opinion the versicle should only consist of the five last words thereof, when the anachronism of Jacob using a Pentacle with a sentence from Ezekiel will no longer exist.
It serveth for protection against all earthly dangers, by regarding it each day devoutedly, and repeating the versicle which surroundeth it. Thus shalt thou never perish.
Editor's Note.--The four Names in the Arms of the Cross are Seraph, Kerub, Ariel, and Tharsis; the four Rulers of the Elements. The versicle is from Psalm xxii. 16, 17:-' They pierced my hands and my feet, I may tell all my bones.'
It hath great power against poverty, if thou considerest it with devotion, repeating the versicle. It serveth furthermore to drive away those Spirits who guard treasures, and to discover the same.
Editor's Note.--Mystical Characters of Jupiter with the verse:--'Lifting up the poor out of the mire, and raising the needy from the dunghill, that he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.'--Psalm cxiii, 7.
The election is for 4:47 am MDT, March 27, 2009 for Boulder, Colorado, where the talismans will be cast. It is Jupiter day and the planetary hour of Jupiter, as set forth in the Greater Key of Solomon, Bk I, ch 18. In addition, however, at the time of the casting of these Pentacles Jupiter rises, Jupiter is the mixed triplicity ruler of air and the Moon sextiles Jupiter.
