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 😹

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

Mars in Scorpio Oil: Temperance Edition

Mars in Scorpio Oil: Temperance Edition


A blend of organic herbs, resins, and gems of martial nature and correspondence, including bloodstone, red jasper, red ginseng, scorpion pepper, stinging nettle, basil, pink and black peppercorn, ritually suffumigated with Mars’ Degree of Exaltation incense during the pre-dawn hour of Mars on New Year’s day 2020.

This as Mars rose in Scorpio (electional chart within the image gallery), in addition to other herbs and sundries typically employed in Hoodoo and Conjure for promoting fortitude, strength, potency, and victory, such as High John the Conquerer Root. Blood enhancing additions for virility and masculine potency are also present, in the form of horny goat weed, tongkat ali, yohimbe, and others, in a base of organic olive oil.

This was formulated with the explicit intention of creating a user-friendly, non-toxic, and temperate Mars oil. While it is very powerful, it is also cooler in tone and manifestation than Mars often is, oriented to be as productive as possible. It promotes focus, grit, inner steel, and teaches Martial wisdom through the perspective of its fixed water sign. Expect gains in self-sufficiency, a boost to your strategic, grounded and tactical thinking, and to better remain calm and centered, committed to The Mission at hand.

For more on its expression, applications, and side effects, see the series writeup.

Apply to the self before going to work or engaging in physical activities, to override lazy and whiney impulses. Use before entering into situations where your ability to keep calm in the face of offensive or defensive maneuvers will win the day. Anoint weapons and Martial implements to empower them.

Should you have need for a more weaponized form of Mars in Scorpio, consider its more lethally endowed Other, Oil of Scorpion.

Arrives in your choice of standard 1/2 oz glass vial for $65 (with an optional Dropper Cap Kit), or 10 ml roll-on w/ red jasper rollerball for $58 (no more remaining).

Mars in Scorpio Info Sheet



  1. I love this product. I have a natal moon in Scorpio, and I like to time my work accordingly. This oil helps considerably. Cool but strong.

  2. Out of the materia I own, this one is my closest companion. I struggle with debilitating anxiety, depression, and executive dysfunction. I wear this oil on days when I know work is either going to be overwhelmingly busy, or I need to do tasks that are personally terrifying. It hasn’t steered me wrong yet, bringing increased focus and lowering fear and dysfunction. If you also struggle with getting anything done and being easily overwhelmed, I recommend this oil!

    A word of caution, however: the first time I applied this oil (to the nape of my neck), it made me feel floaty and detached from my body like I was high. Applying it more than one day in a row also made my skin very irritated, but since I started saying the included Hymn to Mars before application I’ve stopped having that issue. Test it on yourself before wearing it to work!

    (I don’t know a lot about astrology, but for the record my natal Mars is in Cancer.)

  3. This oil has a strong presence and to me is very hot and gets my heart rate up. I pair it with Exalted Venus oil for that reason. I am still learning how to best use this oil, but so far it seems to help me make the correct tactical choices when I am negotiating a tricky situation. I can’t wait to see what else it can do.

  4. My natal Mars is in Gemini, but I’m an Aries Rising. So I have the drive, but my focus is mutable and easily diverted. I’m plagued by digressions when I’m working, and I use this oil to help me focus, power through complex tasks that require planning, and honestly, to just boost getting my shit done in a direct but calmer way. I really like the smell. To me, as a Mars ruled person, it smells musky and masculine, like a mahogany library with leather chairs.

  5. This is such an incredibly nuanced, well-created magical item. I’m amazed at how it’s able to capture the potency of Mars without bringing nearly as much malefic side-effect so I would expect. Even for me, as a day chart person, this Mars feels both like remediation for the areas of my life that are already too Martial whilst giving me more access to the energy used in a true, congruent way in other areas where I am lacking. Also, to me personally, it smells delicious, like a salty herby olive oil!

  6. I am a Scorpio rising, making Mars my chart ruler. Unfortunately, my natal Mars is debilitated. Thus, I was interested in this series for remediation purposes.

    As a fan of Crowley’s Thoth tarot, I find the oil’s color and somewhat musty smell immediately evocative of the Seven of Cups, which, of course, corresponds to the third decan of Scorpio.

    Every Tuesday, during a Mars hour, I light a red candle, which is housed on an iron plate. I use a petition written on the red tissue paper that S+S used as packaging and recite the Hymn to Mars. I have been doing this (somewhat imperfectly) for about two months as of this review. Over the past two months, I have experienced an increased sense of mental balance and increased belief that the actions I take in this world can actually matter, which, of course, has made me more active. I am also improving in terms of setting boundaries, asserting my own mission, and not giving myself away.

    I know the Temperance oil will continue to be an essential part of my growth.

  7. As a double Scorpio, this oil hits home. It comes in hot and makes me feel like I could hit any target with a sling shot. EmPowering.

  8. I purchased the Mars in Scorpio Temperance oil along with the Exalted Mercury Cazimi oil in hopes of combating my procrastination and working towards academic goals I was having trouble initiating. I had originally expected the Mercury series to be the heavy lifter in terms of mitigating my attention disorder, but this Mars offering has really proven to be The One. My ability to not only maintain focus on the task at hand, but actually see it through to completion, skyrockets when I use this oil. The description says it helps to override lazy and whiny impulses, and this has absolutely been my experience. I’ve found it to be a massive asset on a physical level, too – I’ve had some of my best lifting days ever wearing this oil, and as a typically femme/yin type, it’s been really interesting to wear during intimate encounters. I actually find the smell to be quite pleasant, reminiscent of basil, and haven’t picked up on the musky or musty notes that other commenters have mentioned. Definitely one of my favourite S+ offerings to date.

  9. A good oil to use if you have people pleasing programs running. Highly recommend for embodiment of your own energy and on the same hand, tuning others energy out in favor of your own will. Helps me feel protected when saying and getting in touch with my true NO!

  10. This kind of smells musty as if something has died in it, but for some reason I don’t really mind it. The smell conjures a state of internal power and resolve perfect for being active and asserting yourself. Who ever said Mars was pleasant after all?

    This is a perfect remedy to laziness when it’s gym day, especially if you want to go the extra mile or push yourself. I also find that muscle soreness and recovery is far faster when I take this. The God of War is rough and tumble when you need some gruff.

  11. I started using this oil because my usually high-energy, go-getting Mars in Aries energy was being smothered by transiting Saturn squaring it. I was also suffering from a mono-like illness. I was miserable and low-energy for months. I decided to get this oil to see if it would kick me back into gear, and it did! When I wear this I have so much more energy and I get a lot done. It is not a manic type of energy, just enough energy to get through my to-do list and still exercise at the end of the day. Good stuff!

  12. This is by far my favorite S+S item (and I have quite a few). It gives me the motivation and energy that I otherwise lack. The smell is rather musky and a bit strange, but I find myself really enjoying the smell. I have natal Mars in Cancer so I think this oil acts as remediation.
