“When properly invoked, with Jupiter being very powerful and ruling in the heavens, these intelligences—by the power of ancient magic—guaranteed to the possessor of this talisman the gain of riches, and favor, and power, and love and peace; and to confirm honors, and dignities, and councils. “‘Talismatic magic further declared that any one who worked skillfully with this Jupiter Table would obtain the power of stimulating anyone to offer his love to the possessor of the talisman, whether from a friend, brother, relative, or even any female.”

D. Michael Quinn noted that Smith’s Jupiter talisman was constructed according to instructions in Francis Barrett’s 1801 edition of The Magus (Quinn, p. 40). On pages 143-44 of volume one are instructions for making the silver talisman.

Martin, vol. 1, No. 1, October 1975, pp. 14-15).

The silver talisman was constructed according to instructions for making “magic seals, or talismans”. On one side are the astrological symbol of the planet Jupiter, the magic seal of Jupiter, and the magic sigil of the Intelligence of Jupiter. On the other side are the astrological symbol for Jupiter, the magic number of Jupiter (136), a magic number square for Jupiter, the Hebrew name “Johphiel” as the Intelligence of Jupiter, and the Hebrew name “El Ab,” a “divine” name reserved for Jupiter in magic (Francis Barrett, The Magus, 1801, p. 143, 146). Magic ritual goes along with the construction of talisman pieces. For instance, witches teach that one’s shadow should not cross the talisman when one is making it. There is a satanic “Golden Dawn” consecration ceremony for a Jupiter talisman. In the ceremony, an occult Priestess holds the chalice aloft and mutters a prescribed rite.

Reed Durham (1974):

“All available evidence suggests that Joseph Smith the Prophet possessed a magical Masonic medallion, or talisman, which he worked during his lifetime and which was evidently on his person when he was martyred.”
