And look where the slavish worship of Mercury to the exclusion of Iupiter 
got the dot.barons! Look upon my works ye mighty....

"If" I were involved in this sort of thing, I'd rely on Mercury to help me
manufacture a lucky break. Gambling, reading the tells, counting the
cards, noticing which doors are left unlocked and which sheep need
stealing. Mercury is the god of arbitrage (magic), structured
transactions, creative bookkeeping and undiscovered value. Multiplication 
of tiny edges. Oceans Eleven. Vegas.

Iupiter, on the other hand, provides a different form of capital growth. 
Compound dividends. Taking advantage of money's natural desire to work to 
reproduce itself. Fortuitous rewards for good behavior (maybe this is why 
Santa Claus is such an insightful judge of character) and hard work. The 
fruits of one's labors in general. Bright-suspender'd Wall Street. The Art 
of the Deal.

One is a scrappy raconteur and the other is a jolly capitalist. Factors of
class, of course, can close off worship of king god Iupiter -- perhaps
this is why he is primarily a storm god in voudoun, viewed from outside
and below -- but Mercury as god of gambleers is open to shepherds and 
thieves and petty drug dealers, anyone willing to spin the wheel.

As crossroad god, he takes as often as he gives. Zero-sum accounting in 
the end. The god of risk -- Iupiter handles reward, if you want to keep 
your rewards, best get to know the god of kings.

Gold is an alternative to money. It can be translated into money (that's 
one of its delights), but Apollo is older than cash and independent of it. 
He's the look that helps any career, the well-fed glow, the miracle of the 
loaves and fishes, the infinitely renewable power source beating down on 
the world for free.

One's own mileage may vary, of course. These days, gold is a hedge against 
money's weakness, a counterweight to the global capital universe.

Cash flows from Iupiter to Mercury, who bets it for him.
