Measuring Gold
An Astrological Election of Jupiter, Venus and the Moon for Prosperity and Good Fortune

Gold? Yellow, glittering, precious gold?
... This yellow slave
Will knit and break religions, bless th’ accursed,
Make the hoar leprosy adored, place thieves,
And give them title, knee and approbation
With senators on the bench.

William Shakespeare

The Italian Renaissance philosopher Marsilio Ficino had great preference for the planet Jupiter, "For he is very temperate in quality, giving whatever is hoped from Venus or the Sun in a way of his own, more magnificently and honorably than Venus, more temperately too than the Sun..." Three Books on Life Bk. III Chapter 5 (Kaske & Clarke 1989) page 264-5.
When it comes to general good fortune and prosperity, however, our traditional sources all like Jupiter, after all he is the Greater Fortune. The Italian astrologer Guido Bonatti says that Jupiter signifies abundance of substance. Liber Astronomiae Tractate III, Chapter 65 (Spica ed.) page 110. William Lilly says that Jupiter is the natural significator of wealth. Christian Astrology page 168.
Ficino says, " we will use Jovial things, when he and the Moon have both dignity natural and accidental and are together or aspecting each other felicitously." Three Books on Life Bk. III Chapter 5 (Kaske & Clarke 1989) page 265.
If you've been thinking about making Astrological Talismans this is a great election to start with. You can also use it as an election for a Jovial or financial activity.

The time chosen for the election is August 10, 2001 at 9:22 pm EDT in Washington, D.C. 38 N 55, 77 W 03. At this time Pisces rises. Thus Jupiter is the ruler of the ascendant and significator of the elector (person who will be using the election).
Jupiter is very dignified essentially in his exaltation Cancer and in his term. He is well dignified accidentally in the angular fourth house and is thus able to carry out what he promises. Jupiter is the ruler of the first and tenth houses. As ruler of the first, he signifies the elector (person who will be using the election).
In any election we would like to to see the Moon strong, as she conveys all influences from the superior spheres to us in the sub-lunary realm. Here she is in her exaltation, Taurus, as well as being the night triplicity ruler of Earth signs.
She is well placed for financial questions by being conjunct the cusp of the second house of money and personal property. The presence of the Moon in the second house, says Lilly, is a sign of wealth. Christian Astrology page 168. Finally she is also the almuten (planet having greatest dignity at the cusp) of the second house.
Table of Jupiter

The Moon has just separated from a sextile of the Part of Fortune, though they are still in the same degree. She applies to a sextile of the benefic North Node. Her next planetary aspect is a sextile with reception to Jupiter. She then makes a sextile with strong reception to Venus, the Lesser Fortune. Venus is the ruler of the second house.
An appropriate talisman for this election could be made using the Table of Jupiter from Cornelius Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy Bk. II, Chapter 22 (Tyson ed.) page 322, which appears at right. We might also add the Angels of Jupiter, the Moon and Venus, which are Zadkiel, Gabriel and Hanael, respectively. Three Books of Occult Philosophy Bk. III, Chapter 24 (Tyson ed.) page 532.

This traditional astrological election can be profitably (heh, heh) combined with hoodoo, the folk magic of the American South. Check out the Lucky Mojo Curio Company. You could use the Attraction Spell kit or the Money Drawing Spell kit. You might also want to take a look at the Money Spells page.
