It is just past the (pacific) morning hour of Mercury. I used said time to plot out today's Jupiterian activities (as best I could, anyhow) and as they began falling into place I felt as if something was missing. So I broke out Betz' The Greek Magical Papyri in Translation, and decided to let Bibliomancy fill me in.
I was... surprised to come across the following ritual. It's PGM V.459-89, and is a general invocation to Zeus/Jupiter. The Jupiterian circle folks may recall that after priming my first Fluid Condenser (Sol + Jupiter), I complained that it seemed to have shattered my invisibility glamors. It was upon consulting Bardon's Initation into Hermetics that I noticed a quaint passage where he noted that over-steeping oneself in solar energy may be detrimental to the process of astral invisibility.
The following PGM lists the reasons for using it as: “It loosens shackles,makes invisible, and sends dreams; it is a spell for gaining favor. (Add the usual for what you want.)”
The spell follows:
“I call upon you who created / earth and bones and all flesh and all spirit and who established the sea and suspended the heavens, who separated the light from the darkness, the Supreme Intelligence / who lawfully administrates all things. Eternal Eye, Daimon of daimons, god of gods, the lord of the spirits, the invariable AIŌN IAŌ OYĒI, hear my voice.“I call upon you, master of the gods, high thundering Zeus, sovereign Zeus, ADŌNAI, lord IAŌ OYĒE; I am he who calls upon you, great god, in Syrian: 'ZAA-LAĒRIPHPHOU,' and you must not ignore my voice (in Hebrew: 'ABLANATHA-NALBA ABRASILŌA'); for I am SILTHACHŌOUCH LAILAM BLASALŌTH IAŌ IEŌ NEBOUTH SABIOTH ABRŌTH ARBATHIAŌ IAŌTH SABŌATH PA/TOURĒ ZAGOURĒ BAROUCH ADŌNAI ELŌAI ABRAAM BARBARAUŌ NAUSIPH, high minded one, immortal, who possess the crown of the whole world, SIEPĒ SAKTIETĒ BIOU BIOU SPHĒ SPHĒ NOUSI NOUSI / SIETHO SIETHO CHTHETHONI RIGCH ŌĒA Ē ĒŌA AŌĒ IAŌ ASIAL SARAPI OLSŌ ETHMOURĒSINI SEM LAU LOURIGCH.”

Couple it with the right symbols, gestures, Orphic Hymn, and timing and there's something quite useful in the mix for more than a few people, I think. Enjoy, Gentlemen.
