Renaissance Astrology is pleased to present authentic bronze J.S. Smith Jupiter talismans for wealth, good fortune and wisdom. These limited edition talismans were actually cast out of molten bronze at a precisely elected time! You can see the actual chart of the making of these talismans below. Jupiter is our most popular planetary talisman for wealth, prosperity and good fortune!
The Renaissance mage Cornelius Agrippa says that a Jupiter talisman, "...conduceth to gain, and riches, favor, and love, peace, and concord, and to appease enemies, to confirm honors, dignities, and counsels, and dissolve enchantments..." Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Book II, chapter 22.
On the front of the talismans, which you can see above, in the middle is the planetary table of Jupiter. Above the table is the Hebrew, El Ab a Divine Name of Jupiter, corresponding to the number 4. Underneath the table is the standard symbol of Jupiter. In the outer ring to right is the Hebrew ABA another Divine Name of Jupiter, which corresponds to the number 16. To right on the outer ring in Hebrew is the name, Johphiel, the intelligence of Jupiter, whose number 136 appears at the bottom of the outer ring.
On the back of the talismans, which you can see to right, we see around the edge in Latin, Confirmo Deus Potentissimus, "Strength me, O God most powerful" Next on the back we see the symbol and seal of Jupiter and the sigil of the Intelligence of Jupiter.
The so called Joseph Smith Jupiter talisman is actually a talisman design from early 19th century esoteric author or rather compiler, Francis Barrett. Barrett's The Magus was published in London in 1801 and is made up of selections from Cornelius Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy, the Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy attributed to Agrippa and the Robert Turner's 1655 translation of the Heptameron of Peter of Abano. Barrett made a few modifications and modernized the spelling and syntax of these selections.
Nevertheless, as the modern scholar of religion and
magic, D. Michael Quinn notes the Magus had a great influence despite only
"Barrett's book was not reprinted until 1875. Nonetheless, Francis King's study of the Western tradition of magic noted that the first edition of the Magus, 'played an important part in the English revival of magic'. Antoine Faivre has also emphasized Barrett's book in the general European revival of magic during the first decades of the 1800's."
D. Michael Quinn, Early Mormonism and the Magic World View (Signature, 1998) page 21.
Barret's book also played a significant role in one of the most interesting discoveries and subsequent controversies involving Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormons or Church of Latter Day Saints.
In 1974 Dr. Reed C. Durham, a Mormon and noted scholar of Mormon history gave a lecture entitled, "Is there no help for the Widow's Son?". Durham revealed a medal worn by Joseph Smith and long thought to be a Masonic emblem was, in fact, a talisman of Jupiter. Smith's talisman appears to left.
What is interesting to note is that Smith's Jupiter talisman is almost identical to the example given by Barrett above and to the right. This format is not provided in either Agrippa's Latin original nor the English translation of 1651 by John Freake. The illustration in the English translation appears below to right. Note the break in the seal which seems to be a printer's error and does not appear in the Latin original though it is faithfully copied in the Magus and Smith's talisman. Our talisman has the original, correct, unbroken design.
The Jupiter talismans were cast on 7:01 am February 28, 2019 in Islamabad, Pakistan, by our jeweler/mage, Muhammed Ajmal. Jupiter is culminating and is dignified by sign (+5) and it is the planetary day and planetary hour of Jupiter.
