Jupiterian/Mercurial Prosperity Box

No automatic alt text available.

 

In this post, I’ll detail the process for creating my version of the Jupiter Prosperity Box, sometimes known as a “cash box” for money magic that is fueled by Planetary current. Since I am still inclined to use the Qabalistic correspondences, I use the hierarchy of Chesed (Sephirah: Chesed, Divine Name: El, Archangel: Tzadqiel, Order of Angels: Chasmalim, Intelligence: Iophiel, Spirit: Hismael, and Planet: Tzedek).

As usual for the Jupiter current, the colors I used were Royal Blue for the base paint coat, and I got a gold paint pen for the inscriptions. For this one I opted to use a simplified Hebrew font that worked out quite well, as it uses straighter lines and simpler forms rather than the calligraphy style of Biblical Hebrew. It might not be AS nice looking, but it made the job twice as easy when it came to woodburning all the names and filling them in with the paint pen. For anyone struggling with Hebrew I would check out the simplified font and start with that, as it looks almost just as nice.

You’ll also notice the motif of the number 4 with the planetary symbol in each corner of the top of the box, because 4 is the sacred number of the planet Jupiter, and also because Chesed is the 4th Sephirah from the top on the Tree of Life, and even the symbol bears more than just a slight resemblance to a stylized 4.

I decided to use the Fourth Pentacle of Jupiter from the Key of Solomon, because it is associated with wealth and prosperity, as the Psalm paired with it is chapter 112 verse 3; “Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.” No, I am not a traditional Solomonic magician, so I don’t mind using the pentacles out of context from Solomonic liturgy for an experiment like this. I do, however, find it mostly necessary for me to rely on the petitions of guidance and intercession of particular entities of this chosen current and sphere of influence with this work, rather than on Hexagram rituals to tune the sacred space and/or the items included.

I’ve chosen to paint the inside of the box Orange to pair the Jupiterarian energies with the road-opening power of Mercury. This hierarchy is as follows; Sephirah:Hod, Divine Name: Elohim Tzavaot, Archangel: Raphael, Order of Angels: Beni Elohim, Intelligence: Tiriel, Spirit: Taphthartharath, Planet: Kokav.

Inside of the box, I’ll keep a few select herbs, 4 dollar bills anointed with 1 drop of my blood each, 4 quarters, 4 magnets, a petition paper, cinnamon sticks, a vial of nutmeg, a vial of pumpkin pie spice (which includes cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and clove), and a pair of blue and orange chime candles, tied together with string and placed inside a small muslin bag. On the base of the inside of the box, concealed beneath the pentacle,  there is also a depiction of my personal Mason’s Mark to act as a grounding link. However, I will also be burning candles, inscribed with appropriate sigils, on top of the pentacle on the outside lid as a little offering of sorts to the hierearchy of Chesed/Jupiter (El/Tzadqiel) and to the hierarchy of Hod/Mercury (Elohim Tzavaot/Raphael) periodically to “charge” the currents I am calling upon. I will also place my incense burner atop the lid every now and then and burn the appropriate perfumes (frankincense/cedar/mastic) for the same purpose. For the main workings I will petition the Chesed/Hod hierarchy, but for the lesser devotions I shall work with Bariel and Adoniel, those associated with the 4th Pentacle of Jupiter.

The first step however, is to anoint the box itself with a stash of holy water, oil, hyssop, salt, and incense smoke that will all be exorcised and blessed beforehand. I will include the ritual to prepare these items in full, as this is necessary in my work to use blessed implements in ritual. The prayers are based off of those found in the Key of Solomon and are fairly simple and direct in nature, and these require nothing more than the sacred items to be consecrated, as follows:

-CONSECRATION OF HOLY WATER, OIL, SALT, HYSSOP, CANDLES, & INCENSE-

+

In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Our Father, Who art in Heaven…

“Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.”

[Cross forehead, lips, and chest]

EXORCISM

[Hold hand over all items to be exorcised]

I exorcise thee, O Creatures of [Water/Salt/Hyssop/Wax/Perfume], that the blessing of God Almighty be upon thee, and let all malignity and hindrance be cast forth hence from, and let all good enter herein. I cast out from Thee all the impurities and uncleanness of the Spirits of the World of phantasm in the name of Almighty God; YHVH, who liveth and reigneth unto the Ages of the Ages. Amen.

BLESSING OF HOLY WATER

[Cross Water thrice]

O Lord, deign to bless and to sanctify this creature of water so that it may be a source of cleansing and purification, through the invocation of Thy Holy Name. May all creatures that receive the blessing of this water receive health of body and of soul, through Him Who hath formed the Ages. Amen.

BLESSING OF OIL

[Cross Oil thrice]

O Lord, deign to bless and to sanctify this creature of oil so that it may be a tool of anointing, through the invocation of Thy Holy Name. May all creatures that receive the blessing of this oil receive health of body and of soul, through Him Who hath formed the Ages. Amen.
BLESSING OF SALT

[Cross Salt thrice]

O God, deign to bless and sanctify this creature of salt, to serve unto us for cleansing, purification, and assistance in our operations, and may it be a succor unto us. Amen.

BLESSING OF HYSSOP

[Cross Hyssop thrice]

O God, deign to bless and sanctify this creature of hyssop, to serve unto us for cleansing, purification, and assistance in our operations, and may it be a succor unto us. Amen.

BLESSING OF CANDLES

[Cross Candles thrice]

I consecrate thee, O creatures of wax, by Him who alone hath created all things by His Word, and by the virtue of Him who is pure Truth, that thou cast out from thee every phantasm, perversion, and deceit of the enemy, and may the virtue and power of God enter into thee, so that thou may give us Light, and chase far from us all fear or terror.

[Illuminate candles]

I exorcise thee, O creature of fire, by Him through whom all things have been made, so that every kind of phantasm may retire from thee, and be unable to harm or deceive in any way, through the invocation of the Most High Creator of all.

Bless, O Lord all powerful and all merciful, this creature of fire, so that being blessed by Thee, it may be for the honour and glory of Thy most Holy Name, so that it may work no hindrance or evil unto those who use it. Through Thee, O eternal and almighty Lord. Amen.

BLESSING OF INCENSE

[Cross Incense thrice]

O Lord, deign to bless and to sanctify this creature of perfume, so that it may be a remedy unto mankind for the health of body and of soul, through the invocation of Thy Holy Name. May all creatures who receive the odour of this incense receive Your consecration, through Him Who hath formed the Ages, Amen.

 

After doing this on a Wednesday and in an hour of Mercury, these items are ready to be used. If you are doing this for the first time, remember to try to keep such items wrapped or boxed up away and out of sight from others where they will at least remain unused for mundane purposes, and this goes for any other spiritual tools as well. Keep in mind they are are now charged for magical use, and it would be best to obtain some special containers to keep them in for safe-keeping for sacred use. Such items can be used to then bless and consecrate other tools, and if that’s your thing, then a nice little stash is useful to have on hand if you have the means and the space for it. For my own supply, I got some nice little corked bottles and flasks from my local art supply store for very a very cheap price, kept within the section of glassware and vases. They were perfect for what I needed, and hopefully you can find something similar if you wish to keep a stock of blessed oils, incense, etc.

Now that we’ve covered the initial blessings of materials to use on the box, let’s cover the ritual for consecration and dedication.

The arrangement used for this rite consists of a Blue candle and an Orange candle on either side of the altar, and the prosperity box placed in the middle. Behind these is the blessed Water, Oil, Salt, and Censer with some appropriate Jupiter or Mercury incense to burn. Notice that the Jupiter Hierarchy is called upon first, then the Mercurial Hierarchy after the box is opened. Following this theme of sections, there are 4 knocks to open the Jupiterian petition, and 8 for the Mercurial petition. 

 

BLESSING OF PROSPERITY BOX

[Illuminate Blue candle]

* * * *

O Lord EL, by the virtue of the sphere of Mercy do I summon your Archangel TZADQIEL to hear my petition and intercede on my behalf. Great Archangel, deign to bless and to sanctify this creature of wood so that it may be a source of wealth and prosperity for me, marked hereon with Holy Names and signs that represent its purpose; to facilitate the blessing of its contents, to perpetuate prosperous growth, and ensure that monetary success shall not be difficult to obtain, so long as no harm or distress be caused to anyone in the process. In this box shall I keep things related to positive expansion, so may it be a source of productive experience both for my material needs, and also for my spiritual ones.

I anoint the four corners of this prosperous treasury with blessed Water and blessed Salt.

I anoint it with blessed Oil, and I pass it through the smoke of blessed Incense.

The outer form of this treasury having been purified and consecrated, I ask that the blessing of the Lord be upon it, through the merciful influence of His Archangel Tzadqiel, and through the work of the Chasmalim.

 

[Open box and illuminate Orange candle]

O Lord ELOHIM TZAVAOT, by the virtue of the sphere of Splendor do I summon your Archangel RAPHAEL to hear my petition and intercede on my behalf. Great Archangel, deign to bless and to sanctify this creature of wood so that it may be a source of wealth and prosperity for me, marked hereon with Holy Names and signs that represent its purpose; to facilitate the blessing of its contents, to perpetuate prosperous growth, and ensure that no blockages or doors of opportunity be closed unto me, but that my road to prosperity be clear, my path clearly marked, and my footsteps guided thereon, so long as no harm or distress be caused to anyone in the process.

I anoint the four corners of this prosperous treasury with blessed Water and blessed Salt.

I anoint it with blessed Oil, and I pass it through the smoke of blessed Incense.

The inner form of this treasury having been purified and consecrated, I ask that the blessing of the Lord be upon it, through the merciful influence of His Archangel Raphael, and through the work of the Beni Elohim.

In the Name of the Lord, I declare this rite complete.

 

For those constructing their own Prosperity Boxes, it may be a good idea to periodically anoint the box and say a brief prayer to keep the energy active. If you are using magical timing, then use Wednesday for Mercury prayers and Thursday for Jupiter prayers. Be sure to offer candles as well; white, blue, and/or orange, and also use incense if you are able. The Orphic Hymns are another great way to connect with Planetary forces and add a poetic and moving touch to your ritual. Doing these things regularly will ensure that it’s much more likely to keep the energy active with brief work every now and then the more you pay attention to it. This also goes for most talismans as well, periodically “feeding” it may give you better results, and will at the very least remind yourself of the more mundane work you could be doing to help manifest your desires.

Prosperity boxes are great places to store candles you plan to offer, paper money notes and coins, magnets, appropriate stones or crystals, mojo bags, sacred herbs/spices, and probably most importantly, petition papers to focus your intention. The latter may include any useful sigils or seals that would go well with your goals. Remember that the Jupiter current is profitable expansion and productive investment, structures of beneficial authority, and long-term prosperity for wealth. On the other hand, the Mercury current governs flow of energy, data and information exchange, language, math and science, business, short-term prosperity for monetary gain, and is often used for clearing blockages or road-opening work.

You can see then why I decided to combine these elements for a multi-faceted approach towards not just petitioning for wealth, but to allow those more subtle facilitating processes to flow smoothly in other areas for a well-rounded operation. This may include inspiration for some quick cash in side projects aside from your normal vocation, but may also be the possibility of establishing better long-term relationships with your coworkers and leadership that may manifest in pay raises or career advancement of all kinds, including academic progress and a better flow to your family life, improving relationships with loved ones and friends also. This is the kind of wealth that is just as essential as material wealth of you ask me, but just know that expecting money to fall into your lap may not be the way your magic manifests. If necessary, you can focus your petitions to include specific instructions that relate to paying off bills or other debt, etc etc.

  1. This is absolutely beautiful work! Making a Jupiter-based money box during Jupiter retrograde is a bold move. Out of curiosity, how do you get around the retrograde aspects which could risk causing Jupiter-based magic designed to increase money to backfire and result in you actually losing money? I had been planning on making the a Pentacle of Jupiter from the Key of Solomon but due to concerns of this nature, I opted to wait until Jupiter comes out of retrograde to move forward on that end. If you’ve found ways around this retrograde constraint, I’d love to hear about them. 🙂

    1. I made this box at least a month or two ago I believe, and had no plans to consecrate it until recently. I pay little attention to retrograde status, in favor of petitioning the Hierarchy for direct blessings instead.
