I sprinkled the DA powder on myself before going on public transit, and our train was stopped while police swept the cars after a threat of some kind was reported. Nothing was found and I got to work safely, but this has never happened after years of commuting. I took it as reinforcement that the materia was amping up protection and was relieved to also see that the increased police presence was actually centered around a safety sweep and did not appear to result in any other stressful or harmful interactions that happen at times with police and public transit. I mix this powder in with some other herbs while doing house protection rituals and sprinkle this in the car when traveling.
I don't often go for the powders, but I am loving the DA II powder. DA II is probably the series I use most often (the salve! the bluing! the kolonia!!) but there are times when the powder just hits differently. I run a bit through the underside of my hair or sprinkle some in my shoes whenever I feel like I could use the feeling of more of physical layer of protection.
Successfully used this powder while moving within the apartment complex I already live at, to deflect others from potentially leasing the unit I wanted before my lease ended. To sort of “lay claim” to it and anchor my energy there. I’m now moving in by the end of the month!
So grateful for this oil and powder. Powerful and effective…and intimately in tune with the energy and medicine of this fixed star. Blessed to be in the process of discovery and veneration with these added supports.
Very impressed with this lovely annointing oil. High quality, beautiful fragrance. I've noticed others seem to perceive me as more authorative or accomplished when I'm wearing it. Love that I can apply to wrists, anoint my gate, car, desk, bag and doors with this. I also use crystals for protection however Deneb Algedi is much more versatile, making me feel safe and protected. Thank you, Sphere and Sundry, for this wonderful creation
Of all the oils I have, this is the one that I find myself reaching for the most - in any and ALL occasions. Traveling? I layer it on and bring it with me. Meeting new people? Layer it on. Need a buffer between myself and work? Layer it on and carry with me. This oil manages to wrap itself around me (like a comforting weighted blanket), and provide a thin layer of armour to protect me from other people's energies (or taking too much of mine).
Once - I went out to dinner with someone I didn't know that well and forgot to wear it, and came home to a splitting migraine after sharing too much of my energy. I put this oil on when I came home and the migraine dissipated, within minutes!
I use this mainly for protection of space to maintain a boundary. I use this in concert with salts for an extra dose of psychic fortification against negative energy.
The DA oil is best Saturn hack one could ever hope for. It has the sternness of Saturn without the harshness. I feel it clarifies my Mercurian mind from scattered to gently but firmly focused. It also holds the space it the background when I layer it with any other materia.
Together with the DA bath salts and body butter (& collaborating with other series), this oil has helped me delve deep into the foundations of my life and repair decades-old damage and vulnerabilities. My borders feel more secure now and my grounding more solid. The work is slow and hard, but somehow it seems to progress at exactly the necessary pace, giving little encouragements and fortifications along the way. Grateful.
Like the write up says, this oil helps reinforce boundaries by keeping things IN as well as keeping things OUT. While I started regularly using it to slough off bad intentions and feel strength in a challenging situation, it also helped ground me and detach myself from some tough emotions that were clouding my perspective and making things worse. On a practical note, it got me through a long and potentially fraught contract negotiation where I think both parties walked away satisfied with the deal. Not as palpable or immediate as (say) the Venuses or Mercuries, but still waters run deep.
