Money and its egregore have a pretty long and paradoxical history. Not far away are the times when money was considered being dirty, bloodstained, and alike… And nowadays there are still many people who, embodying all the vice in the universe, hide behind it. Nevertheless, our civilization has entered a new epoch, the epoch of Aquarius, pertaining to the Element of Air, which money does symbolize. Our understanding of money in the epoch is about to considerably expand.


This is the Matrix of the Money Egregore!


Look how the Matrix ‘is blowing in the wind’! The wind of change brings new times, new laws, and new mentality! And we are told by the modern anthropology, modern economics, modern psychology, and sociology that ‘money goes where power is’. Money is power, power is energy, - money is energy! And moreover, that of a sacred nature! No wonder, on one of the world’s most prestigious currencies it runs: ‘In God We Trust’!


Till this day, the place that continues to be the citadel of Tradition and the guarantee for Stability is the City of London, and this where Norman Foster’s creation appeared on 30 St Mary Axe (sic! - we are all under God!). The building is designed in the form of a cigar, a symbol of luxury and prosperity, though some may see other references… also very important and connected. Yes! This is the Matrix of yin and yang harmony as a basis for financial success!


Money might be given as a punishment, reward, checking, a lesson to learn, and, as a pinnacle of someone’s development. It could be a level of knowledge, maturity, and measure of personal grandeur. ‘Ghana’ in Arabic means ‘grandeur’ and ‘independence, being self-contained’; no wonder in Koran it runs, ‘Oh, people, you are in want of Allah, and Allah is wealth and grandeur…’ (35:15). The wealthiest members of their trade – Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, J. K. Rowling… - are good examples of the earthly projections for wealth and grandeur! They have reached all-time heights of success and prosperity by mastering their ability to… 

  • Set goals – ‘Management by objective works if you know the objectives; ninety percent of the time you don’t.’ P. Drucker
  • Consider the planning of actions – ‘The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You cannot blow an uncertain trumpet.’ T. Hesburgh
  • Use the experience already acquired – ‘One good thing about being young is that you are not experienced enough to know you cannot possibly do the things you are doing.’ G. Brown
  • Believe in own potential – ‘Man never made any material as resilient as the human spirit.’ B. Williams
  • Remove restrictive limits – money never comes to limited circumstances! ‘A man can succeed at almost anything for which he has enthusiasm’ (C. M. Schwab)! For a human there are no other limits except the ones he sets himself! Everyone can achieve everything he can imagine, everything he believes in! – ‘If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.’ W. A. Ward
    ‘I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul!’ W. E. Henley
  • Never link failure with own capabilities – It is wise to keep in mind that no success or failure is necessarily final. It is also important to remember that ‘Life is like riding a bicycle; you don’t fall off unless you stop pedaling.’ C. Pepper
    ‘A stumble may prevent a fall’! English saying
  • Believe in inevitability of success – ‘I am a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it’! S. Leacock
  • Understand that being a well-to-do is being the one to do well… ‘Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It is not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it’s when you’ve had everything to do, and you’ve done it’! M. Thatcher

Success is always a creative source! The more wishes you make come true, the easier comes new success, and more willingly comes the money!


Yeah… the whole Matrix is soaked with stability and change, wealth and prosperity, security and safety: lemon symbolizes million; the cocktail ‘Liberty’ symbolizes… you know what – how can one feel liberated without money?


The hourglass surely refers to Time, and, you also know, ’Time’s money’! Though the metaphor of the hourglass seems more complicated and speaks about links and transformation of time, space, human creativity and their derivative – money. Creativity, as well as money, is connected with the domain of the Air Element, and, if someone is complaining of lack of fresh air, with this he claims creativity, which he badly lacks… as well money… And how can money come to someone good for nothing? Yeah, money is accumulation of time! And a trademark of an advanced human is tact and respect for someone’s and own time! The hourglass also refers to the rune ‘dagaz’ with the meaning of ‘a rise in your wealth’, or, according to another system, the rune ‘kijg’ with the meaning of ‘willpower and love’.


Gold ingots, jewelry, coins, banknotes, credit cards, and electronic settlements – we have already mentioned the energetic origin of money! –are incarnations of money.


Daffodils are a symbol of self-love, without which it is impossible to love others and the whole world, including money, since it comes only to those, who loves it and knows how to handle it enjoying every moment of life: first – happiness, then – money. Big money comes to those, who are doing something new, and the biggest – to someone, who is doing this new… with love!


Also important to bear in mind that money comes to those, whose values coincide with their objectives. For example, when children are the value and their education is the objective, exactly the right amount of money comes to you for their college!


The crown or rings from The Pointing Finger of The One, in the upper right-hand corner… aren’t they from Chopard – the arbitrator of luxury and refined life style?


If the beautiful chrysoberyl in the painting is a crystal of alexandrite, it symbolizes longevity and is called a stone of prosperity in India and Sri Lanka. But if it is amethyst, then it is a symbol of Air, which does not contradict the message of the Matrix! This purple variety of corundum brings happiness and good luck – especially to unselfish and selfless people, - gives prudence, liveliness, well-weighed bravery, and strengthens one’s social status!

Symbols of lyra/lira and a nugget, as big as a boulder, seem to be quite transparent!


And here comes the full amount of floristic symbols: 

  • blooming apple tree is a symbol of grandeur;
  • red roses symbolize courage, respect, and admiration;
  • marigold – permanency;
  • egonia – heartfelt harmony at home;
  • gerbera is a flower of paradox, symbolizing both mystery and openness to the world;
  • poppy – a symbol of fun;
  • lotus – life and happiness;
  • lily – purity, innocence;
  • dahlia – virtue and elegance;
  • peony – passion and wealth;
  • achillea millefollum – favorable cause of changes;
  • orchids – perfection;
  • sakura – purity of intentions.

The rainbow symbolizes happiness and the path to it.


In the center to see Hottey, a four-handed Japanese idol, god of wealth: with one hand she takes, with another – gives, and, thus, holds the whole world in her hands… And that is true: the firmest hold is with a relaxed hand! And real possession is only letting energy through… Maybe this is exactly what meant a doctor, writer, and a public figure Marlo Morgan – the only one who had been chosen by aborigines of Australia from our ‘civilized’ world to enter theirs – when she was writing:


‘I have come to this world with nothing,
And I will leave it without anything,
I have seen life in full,
Traveling with empty hands’...

P.S. ‘What you give away remains your own, but what you hide away is lost!’ Shota Rustaveli
