Aradia and I built our Jupiter altar just short of a week ago. Since then, we have done relatively little Jupiterian magic — a couple Orphic Hymns, participating in the Magical Working Against the False Kings, a bit of dream incubation — but the changes in our lives have already been remarkable.
The very minute we established the altar, the feel of the whole house changed. The … wan malaise that had permeated everything was replaced with a vigorous readiness. We rose at dawn the next day to perform our rites at the Dawn hour of Jupiter, something we had not done since the very beginning of the Solar work.
Since then, we have both been filled with ambition — and, more importantly, motivation. I can’t even begin to get into how much we’ve gotten done in the last week. It has been so, so easy to find the time and energy to do things. I’m not falling asleep on my commute any more.
Even better, for the first time since I came back to Kansas City from the Sunrise Temple, I have felt that old magician’s charisma again. The way people have been responding to me … again, it is beyond words.
Jupiter and witchcraft, it seems, go together far better than I would ever have imagined.
Things are going to get exciting as we start escalating.
