Six of Pentacles
Moon in Taurus – 2nd Quarter (Building)
Wealth, Physical Comfort, and Patience
Ideal Planetary Hour for Taurus magick — Venus
Need financial stability? Light a green candle from the middle of the Moon’s journey through Taurus (today)to the end of the transit which is late tonight (early tomorrow morning depending on your time zone). This candle is not designed to affect other people; but, to encourage the stability of your own wealth energy.
I am sharing some things here that I learned from the program today, because I felt they are important to share with all of my friends.
Relevant tasks for today:
Thursday — Comfort Day!
As Silver says,
"Since it is a Comfort Day, Taurus Moon energy looks at food, cuddly stuff, and bedding. You might want to make changes in the kitchen, the family room, or your bedroom."
Silver is one of the practitioners of the magickal arts whom I have great respect for. I find everything she teaches worthwhile. Today is day four of the program mentioned above. One of the things I learned today, is that we need to try to protect ourselves in order to maintain some financial stability over the next three months. The reason is that Jupiter is going to go retrograde on Monday, December 8th and stays there until April 8, 2015! What does that mean?
Again I Quote Silver RavenWolf:
"Yesterday I mentioned that Jupiter turns retrograde on Monday. Many years ago, when I was first learning about astrology and magick, I discovered that preparing for this particular retrograde was financially important. During a retrograde period, a planet looks within, not really paying attention to what is going on around it. Jupiter, the planet of benefits and expansion urges you to look within for your personal benefits and where you can expand in a spiritual way. While you are busy with this type of evaluation, outside benefits (like the flow of financial energy) can bounce off — meaning you miss opportunities. Savings can dry up, weird bills can pop your budget, etc. To keep things running smoothly and not have to scrounge through the couch cushions, I learned to make a Jupiter talisman and put it in a safe place until the retrograde period was over. A month after this retrograde period, you can de-magick the talisman (break it apart in ritual) and either give the money to charity, or pay it forward in some other way. If a Jupiter retrograde only lasted a week or two, we probably wouldn't care all that much; but, it lasts three full months — this year from 8 December through 8 April 2015. That’s a long time to be hungry."
I'm inclined to agree that I'd rather not go hungry for the next 3 months or have to scrounge for change to pay my bills. What about you?
So, in order to protect myself I prepared the recommended Talisman. The things I used for mine are pictured above. They include a sigil, blessed herbs (I used mixed mints, Lantana from my yard, Earl Grey Tea, and a pinch of clove powder), a bill of paper money in the highest denomination you have in the house (don't worry - you don't burn it), an oak leaf and an acorn from my yard for strength and stability, some blessing oil and a green candle. The sigil was created by Silver, but what you do is draw your own copy of it onto a piece of paper. I used green paper and my magickal green ink pen that I use to write my Abundance Checks with at the New Moon. It took a bit of time to draw and color it in, but I believe it is time well spent!
