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…

Please note that we are currently short staffed due to Covid-19 and the Holiday season. Sometimes we are able to respond same-day, but others are taking much longer. Thank you for your patience in the interim. We have changes in the works that should drastically improve response times in early 2021 🙏

Due to a high volume of emails, it’s not possible to respond to every request.
Correspondences regarding placed orders and by paying clients have the highest priority.

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.

Give the Perfect Gift Using “Real” Astrology + Someone’s Natal Chart

It has since been updated for the 2020 Holiday Season 🎁

Giving gifts can be such a nerve wracking challenge

You want to get people something that they’ll not only like, but hopefully keep, use, and actually value. So many gifts end up pawned off on someone else, only ever pulled out when the giver happens to visit, or end up in a landfill almost as quickly as the wrapping paper.

We like to think of gift-giving as something that brings cheer + shows love to the recipient, but unless they hit the right mark, what we’re really giving is a burden of pretending to like it upon receipt, of thinking about how and when to get rid of it, and of feeling guilty for doing so. AND, you spent your money on that experience! In addition to the time and effort gifting it to them.

We’re all victims in the seasonal gifting cycle… another unfortunate byproduct of our late-capitalist times.

There isn’t much that anyone needs anymore, and a lot of our loved ones already buy themselves whatever it is they want. We feel like we have to get people something, so we do. Christmas after Christmas, birthday after birthday, year after year. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Lucky for us, there’s a better way! Astrology is the perfect gift hack. I’m not talking Sun sign “Get your Aquarius something high tech because Aquarius loves technology!” or “Get your Leo a hand-held mirror selfie-stick combo because they love (drumroll)… themselves!”.

I’m talking the practice of natal astrology, how a professional astrologer does. The act of looking into the natal chart to delineate what someone will appreciate being given — to take into their life for keeps because they value and enjoy it.

I’m talking the second house of valued possessions, and all else related.

So let’s say you want to get someone a gift, and you know (or can look up) their astrology chart. We’re off to the races!

Using whatever your preferred house system is (or whole sign if you don’t have one), what planet is in the second house from the Ascendant? If there is more than one, look at all of them to find any overlapping themes.

If there isn’t a planet in the second, what is the RULER of the second house?

Quickly for those who don’t know the classical planetary rulers:
Aries and Scorpio = Mars
Taurus and Libra = Venus
Gemini and Virgo = Mercury
Cancer = Moon
Leo = Sun
Sagittarius and Pisces = Jupiter
Capricorn and Aquarius = Saturn

So, you’ve got your main planet(s). Let’s see what each one suggests…

  • Heirlooms or antiques (things that are old/ storied)
  • Well-made objects that will last a long-time, preferably by a well respected brand or masterful artisan
  • Practical gifts that can be used by the recipient in their daily life or applied to their hobbies. Alternatively, nice things intended for special occasions which may become heirlooms.
  • Things belonging to (or coming from) grandparents
  • Investment bonds that will mature over time (great alternative to cash!)
  • Gifts that aid in the disciplines they are trying to cultivate
  • DNA testing kits or ancestry information
  • Clocks, watches, fountains, or water features
  • Black, grey, or muted tones
  • Saturn astromagics (related: Deneb Algedi)

  • Knives (kitchen or otherwise); implements for cutting or sharpening
  • A reusable lighter or match set
  • Anything used with fire or heat that overlaps with their interests — barbecues, cooking or baking implements, fire pits
  • Classes or memberships at places to work out, get their heart rate pumping, or sate their competitive instincts (martial arts, gyms, sports, paint ball, laser tag, dancing, etc.)
  • Classes, consultations, or tools that will help them get better at whatever they’re trying to “win” at in life
  • Things the receiver assembles/ builds themselves, perhaps requiring a specialized skill they possess or want to cultivate
  • Books related to the above
  • Things made of iron
  • Red and fiery tones
  • Mars astromagics
SUN (☉)

  • Throwing parties in their honor, surprise or not
  • Things with their name or monogram on them
  • Custom objects or clothing made just for them, bespoke or tailoring services
  • Heirlooms from their paternal side or things coming from their father
  • Things made of gold

  • Heirlooms, especially from the maternal side
  • Things made of silver, tea sets or cups

Looking to the planet provides a lot of great starter information. Now let’s look to other augmenting factors to get even more specific…

The nodes and outer planets all add their own qualities and inclinations. If any of the following are located in the second house or are impacting the ruler, note their influence, because they will color the preferences of the planet:

  • Consumables and physical objects
  • Things to eat and drink
  • Intoxicants
  • Non-material (experiential) or minimalist gifts
  • Things for detoxification and to improve health
  • Oriented toward the spiritual or ascetic
  • Clean lines, unsaturated colors, minimalist
  • Asclepius or Deneb Algedi
  • Technologically inclined (think the Sharper Image catalogue)
  • Newness and novelty
  • Gifts that facilitate independence/ don’t require the participation of others
  • Jupiter’s Lighting Rod or St. Expedite
The signs derive their significations largely from their planetary rulers, so some of the following may be repetitive, but the sign occupying the second house will give us insight into one’s preferences and orientation, giving us yet another layer of information to work with:

Exciting, fast, opportunities for competition and winning


Physical objects, luxury goods, consumables


Fast, mentally captivating, entertaining or humorous


Comfort oriented, physical, sentimental, consumable

LEO (♌)

Self-oriented, visual, exciting, appreciative of grand gestures


Minimalist, practical, understated, muted tones


Involving the participation of others, aesthetically inclined, intellectual

Emotionally significant, serious, dark, insightful


Exciting, fast, pertaining to their main interests or goals


Practical and serious or Dionysian, timeless, high quality


Mentally captivating, impersonal, unique or even strange


Casual, indulgent, sweet

And finally, we come to houses. What house does the planetary ruler of the second reside within?

Things that can be worn and alter one’s appearance or presentation


Valuables, physical objects, things meant for safekeeping and display, money


Things intended for regular use in daily life, enhancing communication and getting from point A to point B


Meant to be kept in the home, comfort inducing, related to family or loved ones


Fun, enhances creativity, related to arts or children


Practical, oriented toward health, work, or pets


Involves participation of the spouse, partners, or loved ones


Shared or collective gifts and resources, investments, money


Things related to travel, philosophy, and spirituality/ religion. Books.


Things to enhance their image or support their professional endeavors


Socially inclined, membership in networks


Fantasy inducing, intoxicants, spiritually or magically inclined

Think through your own chart to see if all these factors align with the type of gifts you prefer receiving, and then go through the charts of loved ones to practice combining these factors and seeing how they manifest.

Note that the planet Venus also relates to gifts, so if you’d really like to astroflex, look to her sign and house placement for even more information about someone’s personal taste and preferences.

Keep in mind that all other mundane gifting considerations still apply!

If you know someone likes bright colors, don’t get them something dark just because they have Saturn in the second house. Use everything else you know about how they like to spend their time and what their interests and preferences are, and then use their astrology to zone in on something even more special.

This is amazing tech — not just around Christmas, but for birthdays, anniversaries, host gifts, and any other circumstance where you’d like to give someone something they’ll truly cherish. Happy holidays 💝

What if I don't have someone's natal chart or birth time?

If all you know is someone’s Sun sign, you can use Solar houses, but this technique relies heavily on the whole chart, so I wouldn’t bother with it unless you have access to their birth data.
