Water freshly harvested from Mt. Shasta, grain alcohol, colloidal gold, and organic essential oils, consecrated during the Antares operation. Saffron threads and red sardonyx.
Cleansing the vessel with this Kolonía helps purify the Martial and Antarian within your own bodily Sphere.
Best practice with any Kolonía is to seal the auric body after use. This is easily achieved by using any Anointing Oil, Salve, or even Body Butter which supports your chosen aims, to address your state in the moment, or for supporting longer-term goals.
Cleanse your ritual and physical weapons, sporting regalia, and other appropriate items.
Turkish colognes are often sprinkled upon the hands before entering households and business establishments, providing natural sanitation and also a delightful scent. ⠀
Sphere + Sundry’s talismanic Kolonías can be used in such a way, or as Celestial Florida Waters for energetic cleansing — promoting clarity and way-finding, as life demands or before ritual. ⠀
Doing the following makes it difficult for nasties to glom on or penetrate the auric body, and establishes a clean slate which potentiates the efficacy of other materia…⠀
Shake well to integrate and disburse organic essential oils, colloidal metals, and botanically derived colors.⠀
⠀Quick Kolonía Clearing Protocol ⠀
Sprinkle about a half teaspoon onto the palm of the hand and gently rub both together for 5-10 seconds, coating tops and bottoms. The hands can float 2 inches from the body or lightly skim it.⠀
Stand and run your palms from the crown of your head down the back of it, then start from the top again, going down the sides, the front of the face and down body, all the way to the tops of your feet. Sweep multiple times. ⠀
If you feel any areas “sticking”, continue stroking until energies disperse, and then proceed with additional downward sweeping.⠀
Continue skimming downward, running your cologned hands across every surface area, including under the arms, groin, between the legs, and rear, concluding with the bottoms of the feet by lifting them. You can “flick” the energy off if it feels right, or it will dissipate naturally, however you prefer.⠀
Take 10-30 seconds to close your eyes and integrate the cleansing, feeling the shift, and thank your chosen Power for the cleansing and protection it provided, sealing the auric body from negativity.⠀
Kolonías also serve to anoint and sanctify the hands, and can be used before performing energy work, ritual work, or any activity related to each series’ arcana – on oneself, one’s clients, or loved ones. They can be used to cleanse objects, spaces, and add oomph to spiritual baths, as well as added to floor washes, essential oil diffusers, or dishes of water kept at the bedside and entries. ⠀
Extraordinarily simple, versatile, effective, and p o t e n t .

My natal Mars is exalted in Cap but unhelpfully crammed in the 12th house; it's a part of me that I like but which feels demonised and unsupported by the outside world in various ways. The kolonia feels like a welcome clearing of the pipes to approach, draw on and express this energy, and I love the saffron scent and colour.
i have mars in detriment in my natal so i bought this kolonia in hopes of giving him a little extra boost. i've been mindful to only apply during the days and hours of benefic planets and the results have been wonderful. clearing up long unsettled arguments, having more motivation to do work that i've been putting off, feeling general increases in vital energy. highly recommend all around!
While I don't have kolonía from every series, I've found that I am drawn to them for different reasons. For the Antares series, I wanted to see what kind of rebooting it might offer for my spirit before I invested in the Antares oil (I have some tricky placements nearby in my natal chart). It's the first kolonía that has felt like it energized and grounded simultaneously, so I often turn to it on Monday mornings when it is challenging to get my game face on for work.
The smell reminds me of the incense used during vespers, so I don't think I could ever grow tired of the scent! I think this has been the gentlest way to ease into the Antares materia as it reframes my mindset without the potential weight of using the oils or incense directly on myself. If you are a bit hesitant to jump right in full force (per Kaitlin's wonderful write-up), the kolonía might be a good start for you too.
I’ve used the Antares kolonia alongside the water and oil over the past few weeks.
It hits heavier than the hydrosol but invigorates and motivates to move the blood in the body. I’ve used it before arduous fieldwork and workouts with great ease.
I use it very early in the morning and wakes me up faster than my coffee takes to make and lets me complete my martial tasks with a sense of immediacy, purpose, and motivation.
I am a long time devotee of S+S materia. Antares series was both calling to me and at the same time I was hesitant, not being sure how it might land for me, so I followed some advice to start with the Kolonia. I have followed Kait's Kolonia Clearing protocol with this materia and it has become a go-to for me on days when I feel disconnected from myself, and when I need an extra boost of courage to navigate through something that I may have previously avoided out of fear. Highly recommend for use as clearing, especially for those who have not yet ventured into the Antares series!
I don't feel like kolonia are an essential baseline for every series I use, but I notice a huge difference for the better when I clear with Antares kolonia before applying any of the oils. I struggle with fatigue and I always feel a light but noticeable boost when I sweep this through my aura before exercise or an activity that requires physical energy.
My Fomalhaut experience is akin to sinking deep down into dreamy primordial darkness...a little briny but safe and protected.
In contrast, this series feels more active and energizing. A few splashes of this is like suiting up to go on an exploratory space mission to an entirely new chapter of my life. There's a sense of mystery, curiosity but also excitement. The overwhelm of the unknown reduced by a sense of trust in the process. It's a fabulous energy... It evokes the wonder of engaging with Mobius artwork and Afrofuturism (astrofuturism??)
I wasn't sure what to expect from this series and have just dipped my toes in; so far it's a win.
I'm a Mars-Cancer native (and it's in the 12th to boot), so I'm always looking for ways to get my energy going. I've been using this for about a week and have found my energy much more focused than usual, which has been a great help. I love the smell too!
If you’re curious about working with Antares this may be a good start because a little goes a long way like with the water. I have just a small bottle of this and I use it often but like all the s+s Kolonías—it is lasting and lasting! I especially love to combine this kolonia and exalted venus water. If you have both and find this a little too strong that can help temper it
This series is amazing! I'm using the Kolonia and it's been great to get projects up and going, especially if I'm sluggish or tired. It sort of feels like working in the shop with my grandpa growing up. He wasn't warm and fuzzy, but we'd put it a long day of hard work (mostly in silence), and get a lot done. It was satisfying. To be clear, I don't think this series has a grandpa vibe, but I have Antares on my IC and my grandpa was that Martial type. I do hit the wall hard at the end of the day, so keep meaning to follow it up with something restorative (Eirene or Cloud King maybe?). No social issues so far? But I try to apply and get moving, so maybe there just hasn't been the chance yet, lol.
