Flora and Fauna of Fortune



Precious Stone

Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli is of the blue violet of the highest form of Jupiter. The specks in it may perhaps be taken to represent those particles of dust referred to above.


The Amethyst is the violet of Jupiter. It is the traditional stone of episcopal rank. Its legendary virtue of protecting its bearer from intoxication indicate its value in lustration. It is the purity of Exempt Adept which destroys for him the illusion or drunkenness of existence, and therefore enables him to take the great leap into the Abyss.


Praying Mantis

The Praying Mantis suggests Jupiter by its simulation of a devotional attitude


The Eagle is the sacred bird of Jupiter.



Cedar has a traditional value in religious work – its perfume is devotional  according to the testimony of intuition, and it is supposed to preserve things  in its neighbourhood from the attacks of moths etc.


Arnica is attributed to Jupiter for its use in relieving pain.


The Poplar is given to Jupiter on account of its soft and easily swollen wood and because of its great height.


The Hyssop is Jupiterian on account of its religious use in lustration. It might perhaps be more properly attributed to Chesed.


The Fig is Jupiterian because of its soft, swollen and, so to speak, sensual pulp; and also perhaps because of its rich purple colour, suggesting episcopal vestments.


The Oak is traditionally sacred to Jupiter, perhaps because it is the king of the trees as Jupiter is king of the gods.

The Sceptre is not a true weapon. It is the symbol of authority, an ornamental reminder of the wand which is kept in the background. The Sceptre must not be used to strike, it would break; as soon as its virtue is challenged, it must be instantly discarded for the thunderbolt.
