Magic Square of Jupiter


Magic Square of Jupiter
Catherine Beyer

In the Western Occult Tradition, each planet has traditionally been associated with a series of numbers and particular organizations of those numbers. One such method of numerological arrangement is the magic square.

Associated Numbers

The numbers associated with Jupiter are 4, 16, 34, and 136. This is because:
  • Each row and column of the magic square contains four numbers.
  • The square contains 16 numbers total, ranging from 1 to 16.
  • Each row, column and diagonal adds up to 34.
  • All of the numbers in the square add up to 136.

Divine Names

The divine names associated with Jupiter all have numerological values of 4 or 34. The names of the intelligence of Jupiter and the spirit of Jupiter are 136. These values are calculated by writing out the names in Hebrew and then adding up the value of each included letter, as each Hebrew letter can represent both a sound and a numerical value.

Construction of The Square

The square is constructed by first filling in each square with numbers 1 to 16 consecutively, starting at the bottom left with 1 and working upward toward the upper right with 16. Then specific pairs of numbers are inverted i.e. they trade spaces. Opposite ends of the diagonals are inverted, as are the inner numbers on the diagonals, so that the following pairs are inverted: 1 and 16, 4 and 13, 7 and 10, and 11 and 6. The remaining numbers are not moved.

Construction of The Seal

The seal of Jupiter is constructed by drawing lines that intersect every number within the magic square.
