Do you offer consultations? Can you look at my chart?

Given time constraints (among other things!), Kaitlin (👋 hi, that’s me!) cannot offer consultations or custom recommendations based on natal charts or most other factors.

For guidance, please see this article 🔮

For remedial suggestions based on natal factors, we recommend Austin Coppock, Austin’s year II graduates, Freedom Cole, or any of the referrals Freedom may make.

Can I add to an order that has already been placed?

Yes! As long as the order has not shipped, you are welcome to place additional orders.

After they get packed, postage will be purchased, and you will be promptly refunded any excess.

Multiples are typically flagged for consolidation by the shipping platform automatically, so there is no need create a support ticket notifying us of dual+ orders (we’re almost never manning the support portal in real time in the workroom, so thank you for the consideration but it just ends up cluttering the inbox!)

If we miss combining them, Sphere + Sundry’s policy is to refund your excess shipping regardless 🤓

You are definitely invited to write in if you feel a refund has been missed, however! We enjoy offering custom services of this nature, but it does increase the odds of a fuck up…

 

Will you come on my Podcast/ YouTube/ &c?

You can ask (and thank you!), but probably not 😅

Keeping operations moving is a more than full time job, so at this point my focus is best kept on the actual work over media + promotion.

If you would like to send an invitation, a list is being kept for if/ when this changes. The offers and opportunities are genuinely appreciated!

There is so much more I would be doing if the time were available…
PLUS, I am weirdly shy 🙈

If I write asking a question that has already been answered in this FAQ will the answer be different?

Nope 😹

Still need help? Contact us…

Due to a high volume of emails, it’s not possible to respond to every request.

Correspondences regarding placed orders by existing clients have the highest priority.
If your request requires a personal response from Kaitlin, lead times are likely longer. Thank you for understanding 🙏

Long and personally involved messages regarding chart placements asking for recommendations will likely go unanswered,
because we do not offer personal consultations. Please see this article 
for guidance on making your selections! Thank you.

How Eclipses Work in Astrology + Magic

How Eclipses Work in Astrology + Magic
July 12, 2018 Kaitlin Coppock

— How Eclipses Work in Astrology + Magic —

For as much attention as Eclipses get, they don’t seem to be very well understood mechanically or magically. Here are some of the most common misunderstandings or blind spots I tend to see making the rounds whenever the Dragon Portal activates:

On a Technical Level

  1. Eclipses occur on what would already be the New Moon or a Full Moon, so saying things like “The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in X” is redundant.Things like this are often phrased that way for keywords or convenience, but it is still a technical fact many would probably be delighted to understand. The type of Eclipse it is *already* tells us whether it fell on the New or Full Moon cycle:Those that happen during the New Moon phase are always Solar Eclipses, and those that fall on the Full Moon phase are always Lunar Eclipses.
  2. Eclipses generally occur in pairs on what would be the Full or New Moons falling within a certain degree of the Nodes, because the Lunar Nodes (aka Head and Tail of the Dragon), are points of calculation for where the Eclipses will take place.This is part of why the Nodes moving from one house to another means something for each given natal chart — it’s where the next sets of Eclipses will begin impacting the life!They normally happen on a single sign axis (Aries-Libra, or Taurus-Scorpio), but that is not always the case if the Nodes are early or late in a sign (such as a Lunar Eclipse in Taurus November 19th, 2021 followed by a Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius on December 4th, signs which are not on the same axis).There are also rare cycles where there are 3 Eclipses in a row, such as in the summer of 2018, and upcoming June 5th, June 21st, and July 4th 2020.
  3. There are two weeks between when each Eclipse occurs, the amount of time between any other New and Full Moon.Austin Coppock refers to this period as The Bardo, since the period of time between sandwiched between each Eclipse Gate can be liminal, disruptive, excessively still, and even surreal.

On a Magical Level

  1. Eclipses are not good times to do any standard Lunar of Solar work, on a mundane or magical level.Their real-time energies are life-averse and toxic.Eclipses are the OG bad celestial omen. This is especially true when it is visible over any given geographical area.Think about the Great American eclipse from August 2017.Is America great again?

Do NOT make a standard/ benefic Solar or Lunar talisman during an Eclipse. It won’t be good for normal Solar or Lunar things, in fact, it will destroy their desirable qualities.

This much is obvious by the fact that the light they carry is blotted out, which is the defining point of the event.

The Sun and Moon derive their power from the amount and quality of light they radiate or carry.

Eclipses are an assault on that life-giving light.

Many magicians and witches have fallen victim to astrological ignorance or misguidance by talismanifying or working Eclipses for the wrong aims. The drama and potency are not all that matter — they have their own character.

Eclipses are malefic events for the Sun and Moon.

The primary thing you want to use Eclipses for is destroying, cursing, concealing, unconcealing, or banishing — but be warned, because you’ll likely channel it to direct it, especially if care isn’t taken to remediate, and again, the energies are not “good” or life-giving.

Eclipses frequently manifest in the body in the form of eye issues, headaches, sinus issues, ear aches, and sore throats (the head of the dragon) and nausea, digestive upsets, the runs, or constipation (the tail of the dragon).

To remediate Eclipses, the Vedic tradition offers many mantras. We often chant and listen to the mantras during the live Eclipse window. Energetic clearings and ritual salt baths are also recommended, especially for South Node Eclipses.

Here are rituals and remediation suggestions for South Node/ Ketu Eclipses and North Node/ Rahu Eclipses.

If you would like to further upgrade your Eclipse understanding, Austin has a 4-series recorded class: Here There Be Dragons: Nodes and Eclipses.

    Thank you for the article! Do you have any knowledge on the subject of Eclipse rain water?

  2. Hilde 3 years ago

    Thank you so much! This info is SO valuable.
    But then, is it a bad idea to get my first tattoo on a Solar Eclipse?
    It’s a triple moon tattoo, and the intention is for it to be a reminder to never doubt of my intuition ever again (since it has caused me very painful problems the past months), and making my feminine cyclical nature a priority.
    I guess that’s kind of Lunar themes? It’s the partial solar exlipse in Cancer (north node). It was an instinctive impulse to choose that day and later I remembered it’s the day of the eclipse.

    Thank you for this article, very helpful. Is it a bad idea to do lunar mansion magick in the two weeks between the eclipses or are your cautions more for the days of the eclipses?

    • Kaitlin Coppock 4 years ago

      Thanks for commenting and happy to help! Having never experimented with that during Eclipse season, I can’t say one way or another with authority. I would recommend staying in dialogue with the work and see if you feel like the results are as good, or if there is fallout.

Pingbacks
