The Rings of Supreme Abundance

The Rings of Supreme Abundance: Jupiter in Degree of Exaltation.


Twelve large and small beryl cabochons were set in gold-filled/rolled-gold wire rings. Liquid storax mixed with glue was set beneath the rings, and the suffumigation was storax mixed with dried basil.

The Day is of Jupiter according to Christian and Chaldaean sources, though not Hour. The Moon is sufficiently fast, in Triplicity, just barely in Joy, Angular, and applying to conjoin Mercury in strong Essential Dignity by multiple qualities.
