I wasn’t certain about how Antares would jive with my very Martial constitution, so the mini sampler option was much appreciated! I’ve mostly focused on getting to know Azure Dragon this far, and it has been a cool, confidence-building delight, especially when I am out and about in the world. I look forward to playing around with the others in this series!
This subset feels the gentlest of all of Antares- but very powerful. It helps me to sustain my workouts and I synchronistically, I found a sex toy outside on the sidewalk during my run.
I love working with Antares and the mini oil set is a nice sampler for when you want to test the qualities of each subset but can't invest in large oils. And these aren't as tiny as they look, they last quite a while. I'm partial to Azure Dragon and settled on a large oils for myself but I love having the option of using the others if I need to.
I love these mini-sets for getting to know a series (and figuring out which oil I'll want to buy full-sized eventually). These have very different expressions but I love them all--Azure Dragon and Badger have been the quickest to understand and Scorpion+Antares base are a slower burn for me, but I love having the option to feel out which will work for a given situation and get to know their energies.
If you're a bit uncertain as to what version of Antares you want to handle/worth with, this set is a wonderful primer to each of the different Antares subsets - and I can say that you don't need a lot!
The Antares energy is potent in helping to drive through a goal. Want to exercise more and get a consistent boost of energy? Working with the Badger has done wonders for races and long distances. Want to go to a string of social events and still have some energy at the end of the night? I've found Azure Dragon an excellent dancing partner (just partner AD with some Venus oil to ease some of the excitement).
I've still been wary of working with Emperor Scorpio and just Antares, but I can tell each of those are equally potent partners and since getting the whole series, I've been consistently waking up early (no matter what time I went to bed the night before). Highly recommend for just "get it done" energy!
I broke a sweat sitting at my desk and deciding which oil would be most appropriate for my chosen tasks. I used a small amount and worked quickly with focus. I have several projects to complete this spring and I am grateful for the tools this series provides. I get distracted easily, anxiety and procrastination are problems when I need to get things done. I'm excited to explore this series.
This series has been excellent for accessing Mars-type energy without directly using Mars materia. It has been powerfully motivating (particularly with daily habits: waking early, exercising, not tolerating excuses from myself that would otherwise hinder progress) and encouraging - in the sense of feeling fortifying and centred within the self. Side bonus: tolerance and desire for spicy food went way up! As a lifelong sweet tooth this was a cool 180 palate experience and a micro way of showing the broader themes of Antares: strengthening, diminishing pain or not being so bothered by it, ‘just do it’ energy. Strongly recommend.
