Welcoming Prosperity: A Guided Ritual for Jupiter's May 1, 2024 Transit into Sidereal Taurus

Are you ready to cultivate abundance and build a richer life?

On May 1, 2024, shortly after midnight (Pacific Time), Jupiter, the planet of growth, dharma, spirituality and opportunity, enters the stable and fertile sign of sidereal Taurus.

This once in twelve year transit of Jupiter in Taurus gives us a chance to expand our material wealth. Deepen our connection to nature. And importantly, redefine what prosperity truly means to each of us.

A simple ritual can help you welcome this important Jupiter transit into Taurus. Setting intentions and welcoming Jupiter's blessings into these areas of your life can have a lasting impact for the year ahead.

"Om Brim Brihaspataye Namah" (ॐ ब्रं बृहस्पतये नमः) is a powerful and important Vedic mantra dedicated to Jupiter.

Here's a breakdown of the meaning and significance this powerful mantra for Jupiter:

  • Om:  The primordial sacred sound representing the Universe.

  • Brim:  A powerful seed syllable (Bija mantra) associated with Jupiter.

  • Brihaspataye:  One of the names of Jupiter, meaning "Lord of Prayer and Devotion." It refers to Jupiter's role as the divine teacher and wisdom guide.

  • Namah: "Salutations" or "I bow to."

Mantra Meaning: "Salutations to Brihaspati, the embodiment of expansion and wisdom."


  • Invokes Jupiter's Blessings: Chanting this mantra invokes the positive energies of Jupiter, supporting abundance, wisdom, spiritual growth, good fortune, and the removal of obstacles.

  • Amplifies Intention: It's used to magnify specific intentions or prayers related to thje things that Jupiter rules, such as higher education, finances, and spiritual advancement.

  • Beej Mantra Power: The beej mantra "Brim" carries potent vibrational energy considered to unlock Jupiter's blessings directly.

How and When to Chant:

  • Intention: Before chanting, set your intention that aligns with Jupiter's positive qualities (read my in-depth article to learn more about Jupiter in Taurus) .

  • Repetition: 108 times, especially on Thursdays, Jupiter's day. You can use a mala (prayer beads) to help count. So on Wednesday, May 1, during the ingress into Taurus and then again on Thursday that same week, ideally.

  • Focus and Devotion: Chant with focus and sincerity, visualizing Jupiter's golden light and expansive energy surrounding and supporting you.
