for Coven Life
Continuing from the previous post of aligning with Universal Powers for effective magickal practices…….
In this post I will be discussing the 5th of the Sacred Seven (in no particular order) that I have been mentioning in the previous posts. Here I will be talking about the giant of the solar system, the grand planet Jupiter known as the Lord of Plenty.
Its magnitude commands respect with dozens of moons and an expansive magnetic field, this mighty planet has its own miniature solar system.
“Beyond the sphere of Mars, in distant skies
Revolves the mighty magnitude of Jove
With kingly state,
the rival of the Sun,
About him round four planetary Moons
On earth with wonder,
all night long beheld
Moon above Moon,
his fair attendants dance.”
… Raphael …
Jupiter’s expansive size reflects its principle of drawing us towards a sense of fullness and offering a grander, more expansive vision of reality. Taking these things into consideration as well as the Mythos of the God(s) associated with this planet makes Jupiter’s energy prime for workings relating to abundance, most notably financial prosperity. This speaks both to the laws of attraction but also to the ability to being open and receptive to that attraction through cultivating a broader view of what the possibilities and potential may be.
Writing about this beautiful giant has come at the most auspicious time. It is that time of the year again where we are overwhelmed with all that is happening around us. Using the power of Jupiter to bring the calm, allow the balance within that radiates without and lastly but not least understand that WE ARE sitting in abundance. Jupiter is about realising that precious perspective of having enough, feeling enough and being enough is simply enough!
This planet brings a greater freedom to think and act for ourselves. Such freedom calls for conscious awareness of what we do, why we do it, and how we balance the urge for instant gratification against the need to invest in the future. If we fail to acknowledge the value of caution and moderation, we can be fooled into exploiting opportunities that lead towards financial failure, spiritual dissatisfaction, or the boredom and depression that accompanies surfeit and over-indulgence.
In Greek mythology Jupiter is Zeus, heavenly father, lord of the day and king of the gods. No star shines as brightly as his; Venus may do so at times, but she is constricted to morning and evening. Jupiter’s celestial brilliance portrays vitality, power, strength, and freedom of will.

Remember with ANY Spell Work it is important to Recognise and Understand:
Why you are doing the spell work?
When you are doing the spell work?
What you are doing the spell work with- that is your equipment?
Who you are doing the spell work for or even with and most importantly do you have their permission?
What are your intentions for doing it?
What is your outcome?
Define the time span, in other words set yourself a time goal of when you want to achieve the result of this spell.
What are the benefits and what are the consequences?
Are you respecting your space, others privacy and of course the integrity and love of the Earth?
Are you familiar with the rules of protection?
Are you in a safe environment?
Are you in a good mental and physical space to perform the spell work, if not, please avoid?
You need to recognise and understand the powers that you are working with. Ensure you are familiar with those energies and their aspects. For every action there is a reaction.
Spell work can be greatly rewarding, but please ensure that you follow the rules, do as much research as possible and only then can you begin.
