From the Key of Solomon: “This is proper for acquiring glory, honours, dignities, riches, and all kinds of good, together with great tranquility of mind; also to discover Treasures and chase away the Spirits who preside over them.”
This item utterly encapsulates the grace and warmth of the Greater Benefic Jupiter. It is said that “this is proper for acquiring glory, honors, dignities, riches and all kinds of good, together with great tranquility of mind; also to discover treasures and chase away the spirits who preside over them.” Around this pentacle reads the versicle, taken from the 112th psalm, “wealth and riches are in his house; and his merit endureth forever.”
Wealth, bounty, abundance, this bit of magical kit would seem to have all the answers for someone wishing to change their life in this or any age. The open-armed embrace of Jupiter blankets the owner of such a talisman such that a shower of blessings descends upon them and their works. This is to say nothing of the very specific treasure-hunting function and the lesser-noticed offer of mental tranquility.
To own this pentacle is to open one’s life to promotions and recognition at work via sudden opportunities to prove one’s worth in an organic and convenient way. New business opportunities, raises, head-hunters manifesting new work avenues that seem so perfect they almost appear heaven-sent, a gift from Jupiter himself. A sudden influx of good fortune, pure, raw, joyous luck can turn night into day and the mediocre, oppressive and unremarkable world against which we all struggle into an exciting and kind one.
Further, one can not miss the promise of treasure, literal and figurative, with which this pentacle tantalizes the prospective owner. Everything from finding items long-desired suddenly on sale for ludicrous discounts to discovering treasured secrets and strategies, normally from the mouths of suddenly earnest mentors, is possible and even likely with this. The beings that guard these treasures, be they literal or roads to glory in one’s life, are sent running. The spiritual beings that may cause bad luck or ill-fated goings-on in a person’s life cease to be a problem.
Another aspect of this that is invaluable especially in our fast-pace year of 2020 with all its myriad woes and concerns is the tranquility this pentacle offers the owner. Peace of mind is a wealth all its own. A barrier against the anxieties that plague people trying to traverse the tumult of a world that seems off-kilter is worth the price alone, even outside of the other things. When a clear head is able to prevail the age-old adage of “life is not what happens to you but what you do in the wake of it” becomes a truism and strategy rather than a patronizing platitude.
To get the most out of this item one must of course work with it rather than expecting it to do everything on its own. By way of example, conjure up the image of the person who refuses to leave the basement of his mother and get a job. That man might have this pentacle and find himself suddenly surrounded by offers to get paid for odd-jobs around the neighborhood. Maybe the neighbors suddenly have food and comforting words to spare to this hapless person. His life will undoubtedly become more comfortable, his presence better-received and his luck multiplied by orders of magnitude. But, is this really enough?
By contrast, picturing a woman who owns this pentacle and approaches her job-search or existing job with vigor and action will find that doors open with ease that she may have thought far out of her reach. People from her past may pop out of the woodwork on social media asking her if she might be right to work for or with them. Her tenacity and desire for upward mobility, mixed with quite literal magic from the kindest planet in our sky, will see her to greater heights and a level of security worthy of anyone who would hold a bit of sorcery in their hands.
The Gods are said to most help those who help themselves. The pure, magical inertia of this charming amulet is undeniable to those who use it to get themselves moving. Consider the versicle once more and remember the promise of merit enduring forever. This is, to be sure, a gift that keeps on giving just as the cornucopia of Jove is ever-full and ever-generous. To those who wish to enhance and advance their lives, there are few better purchases to be made in terms of centuries-old, time-tested magical tech.
