Black hellebore freshly harvested during the New Moon in Taurus on Algol 2018, the fixed star rising. Powdered (ethically and legally begotten) rattle snake rattler, snake’s skin, and diamonds. Combined with charcoal in organic almond oil, bestowing upon it a natural blackness befitting Algol’s nature and reputation.
Algol was petitioned and the ingredients suffumigated and combined, sealing the jar and etching the seal at the height of the election.
Only poured from the Mother bottle during sympathetic days, hours, and transits. Includes a natural preservative to stave off oxidation. Available in a 1/2 oz glass vial hand labeled with the glyph of Algol and basic instructions for use.
Please note that due to the particularly malefic nature of Algol, divination is being done on all orders placed for this series. If the results are ill-omened, we cannot ethically fill your order, and you will be refunded in full for any Algol items in your purchase.
Goldsmith Tony Mack collaborated with Sphere + Sundry during the equivalent election in his location to create a stunning set of talismanic snake bound Rods of Asclepius. They feature high grade carnelian set over viper’s tongue, frankincense, and sage, cast in silver. It just so happened that he made 13, a number he did not previously know was associated with Ophiuchus. Our goldsmith reported two weeks after the Work was done:
I’m starting to notice some effects from the staffs on myself. I’ve been getting up way earlier than usual with a lot of energy. Also some inflammation I’ve had for months started to disappear.
Wear on your person for healing and to help transmute poison into medicine. These are helpful for preserving health and warding away disease, but can also be used by those who have an ongoing health struggle or are taking medications that produce negative side effects. These are wonderful to wear if you work in a healing profession and want to bring the Divine Physician’s blessing into the realm of your client or patient work.
Each talisman comes with a silver chain in a beautiful box hand decorated by Tony. It includes a bottle of Asclepius anointing oil, recommended times for feeding and empowering your talisman, and a prayer to Asclepius.
Smaller 4ct carnelian pieces for $429 are sold out. Ornate 24ct carnelian with snake backing, herbs and viper’s tongue inlaid into the bezel for $729 are also sold out.

As detailed in the series description, ritual baths were one of the first steps taken to cleanse those who made pilgrimage to temples of Asclepius in pursuit of healing, and salt is a natural agent of purification in ways both physical and metaphysical.
Dead Sea salt, Himalayan pink salt, and epsom salt were combined with essential oils of frankincense, cypress, and tea tree, alongside herbs from the incense mixture, with Asclepius’ blessing.
Draw a bath and add the mixture to the water. Includes a prayer to Asclepius and suggested times for ritual potency. Fully immerse yourself, occasionally wetting the full head and hair for best results. Soak for 13 minutes or more.
The formula of this salt is highly concentrated with essential oil to make less go a longer way. Available in an eight ounce jar for $26, enough for 2 deeply purifying baths, or add smaller amounts to many, utilizing the principle of contagion.
Powder from the same Mars Exaltation Degree series in organic sunflower oil, with nails and bloodstone. Combined and sealed at the height of the operation in a glass bottle marked with the appropriate symbolism, agitated during proper days and hours during an incubation period of a full lunar cycle, covered and left to cure with the other offerings.
This oil has taken on a natural deep red tone from the Martial materials imbuing, and is earthy and warming, befitting Mars in Capricorn. May stain and cause skin irritation on sensitive individuals, remaining true to Mars’ nature.
Poured from the mother bottle during sympathetic days, hours, and transits. Includes a natural preservative to stave off oxidation. Keep the bottle covered and away from light when not in use. Available in a 1 oz clear glass vial, especially sealed to prevent leakage during transport. Includes basic instructions for use.

Wooden round ‘boxes’ painted gold and featuring a lion-heart wax design on the lid. On the interior, the seal of Regulus can be seen on the roof, with the constellation of Leo on the base. Not visible under normal circumstances, the seal and name of Regulus are both written on the bottom.
Each box contains one Regulus candle, one bottle of Regulus oil, and one Lion-Heart talisman. All of these items fit neatly inside the box, making for a complete set from the Regulus MC 2018 series. Also includes a vial of gold leaf, herbs, resins, and gems sacred to Regulus, mixed during the night of the operation.
Three Regulus boxes were produced for this very fine election, two of which are being offered to the public.
