Of all of the Fom materia, this one is definitely the most intense. I've only ever been drawn to use it at night, before dreaming. There is a very deep diving quality to this, and it echoes to me my experience of a natal Sun-Neptune conjunction (minus all that solar ardor!). My consciousness processing of Fom always takes a few days, and sometimes being back in the body can be a struggle. Deep ocean wanderings.
I read tarot professionally and this oil has helped me to "tap in" much more quickly and effortlessly. I find that my readings are much more specific when I wear this oil. It also helps me read for myself as clearly and confidently as I do for other people, which has historically been a struggle for me.
I vibe *hard* with this series, which surprised me at first but then in retrospect made sense with my 8th and 4th house natal emphasis. I automatically feel more "me" when I wear it, which again, is not what I expected, and other spiritually-minded people might feel the same. If you're on a journey of self-healing and spiritual development, this oil is a must-have. My intuition has skyrocketed since using this oil, and it seems to have also helped me work through some kinks with materia that I use for solar remediation. I find that I only have to apply it every other day, with the effects being so long lasting, so this oil very well may last me years.
It took me a while to develop a relationship with this materia, but I think in part it was because I hadn't spent enough time with Kait's writeup so I didn't fully understand all of the magical qualities of Fomalhaut. My favorite is it's assistance with finding lost things! I lost a very favorite ring and after frantically searching for it, I remembered to try the oil for assistance and found the ring within minutes! I was so relieved and grateful!
This oil provokes a feeling of stillness - absolute silence, immense awareness of each passing second, and an ability to be present in observation without internalizing or overthinking responses.
I thought this oil might be similar to moon-neptune oil in assisting with mediumship and divination, but I find that Fomalhaut has been showing up more in my dream realm for me. I feel like with continued use it’s helped me connect with symbolism on a deeper level in my every day life. It feels very subtle.
I love applying this on Fridays or when my mind is on over-drive ( tends to happen after a long work day). Also pleasure is very accessible with this oil - it makes me feel super “present” in my body and in tune with what feels good and what I need.
I mostly use Fomy oil at bedtime in combination with Fomy salve on my feet and let me tell you have I dived headfirst into some of the most brilliantly discerning dream visions I've ever had (only rivaled by Moon Neptune in Pisces). I've had dreams clearly answer questions for me as well as visions of the future. And it's mildly addicting, I crave using this at bedtime, I WANT this kind of dream experience every night. I recenly purchased A Dew Drop World and hooboy, extra extra layers of dreaming and perception and visions. 10/10 recommend anything Fomy.
I love using this oil. I didn't expect that it would help me feel grounded within myself. It makes holding eye contact feel so much easier than usual, and it allows me to remain present in a dreamy, aware and deeply attuned way. The first time I wore this oil I went outside and immediately saw a cloud which looked like a whale floating through the sky. I've experienced so many synchronicities with this series. I often find it difficult to meditate, but Fomalhaut consistently brings greater ease and forgiveness. I love using this oil when I'm reading tarot.
I don't live near the Ocean so I actually like the funky-oceanic smell. When I close my eyes I can feel the cool, mysterious comfort of the waves meeting the shore, as if I'm gazing out into the deep waters. I also love working with my dreams, as Fomalhaut helps bring me back to my dream images and experiences. To me, this series speaks in a language similar to that of a dream, and has acted as a beautiful companion.
It almost feels disingenuous to write a review for materia that's still unfolding in so many unexpected ways, but that is part of the charge: discovery. Rediscovering what you didn't know was lost, or turning a corner that opens a different facet of the world to you, finding a key to a door you never noticed before was locked and unexplored. I find this oil works best for me when I don't try to lead it but let it lead me. I'll apply it before bed, and follow. I'll apply it before an outing, and follow my whimsy. Sometimes I'll discover that a past version of me had an insight or an answer for something present that I'd forgotten along the way, and Fom will sometimes nudge my attention toward where I've let my inner voice be drowned out by the collective cacophony online. Again, it's still very much blossoming and I have a feeling there is no final form to it. I'm just happy to be along for the ride.
One of the first things I noticed about Fomalhaut wasn’t necessarily the synchronicities but just how much Fomalhaut showed up in media I watched, how much I turned toward watching shows and listening to music that evoked that oceanic feeling. Other times the synchronicities just show up regardless: when the movie of the night has a plot focused on hidden treasure, when a whale jumps out on the TV screen, when I hear a new song about taking a boat out.
Fomalhaut is a friend of the diviner. Before I ordered Fomalhaut, I made it a practice to begin closing my eyes when I did tarot and letting the imagery and sensations take over, then seeing what card I pulled that evoked those feelings. Fomalhaut puts me in touch with the inner vision, a sense that has historically not been my strong suit. Sometimes I see the exact shapes or an outline of the imagery that will be on the card I drew for the day. Even practicing my visualization skills, I’ve never gotten the results that I get with Fomalhaut.
Fomalhaut also helps facilitate spiritual relationships and relationships with your surroundings. Fomalhaut can both help set the stage so you can clear a space and communicate with spirits, and can also help you to see spiritual activity that you may not have noticed otherwise.
An interesting note about the Fomalhaut oil is that it’s one of the first non-BPAL oils I’ve used where my partner commented on it. He said “it smells familiar”, to which I responded “maybe it reminds you of the beach.” ️
All S+S materia is a journey in a bottle if you’re willing to take it. Some of those journeys we may prefer over others. If you want to walk the spiritual and divinatory path, you may find Fomalhaut calls you…
I love love love this oil. The literal manifestations have been unreal – the first time wearing it my little daughter, who had been shy of the water – begged me to go swimming with her in the sea (we were at the beach) and she spent half the day bobbing about in the water with me floating, jumping, getting her face wet. It was amazing for me because I’m an open water swimmer.
When I furst put the oil on I felt so empowered, and fillled with a really clear sense of my own value in the world, and such a deep frustration that I hold myself back that I could not help but act in my own interests. And I have been doing so since. In the writeup it says good for finding lost things, for me it has been amazing for finding lost parts of myself, and reclaiming lost power, which I have been sorely in need of.
I have amazing technicolour beautiful dreams too, although it can wake my up several times a night with the beauty so not exactly restful sleep sometimes!
And I love the smell, it smells exactly of the fresh sea, I could sniff it all day.
It is pretty hypnotic, if I go for solo walks I can get totally absorbed in the beauty around me, but in a kind of faery way, not a venusian way. I could have sworn the surface of the canal turned to a quicksilver mirror I could have stepped through, for example. It is excellent for my creativity and for storytelling, and for accessing symbols and mysteries from other worlds for telling here.
Applying this oil adds a palpable depth to my abilities for engaging with clients for astrology, ensuring clearer vision to offer the wisdom and guidance they need. It rouses empathy, psychic ability, spiritual insight, cleansing and healing. A new favorite!
The first thing that hits you is the smell- you really do feel like you’ve stuck your nose in a salty cave by the sea as soon as you twist off the cap!
I’ve been using this oil before tarot readings, both for myself and others, and the results have been very consistent. Readings flow much more easily, cards resonate more meaningfully, and messages come through clearly and unambiguously. I used to struggle, especially when reading for myself, with intuitive hits getting caught along the way in a net of self-doubt and second-guessing. With Fomalhaut, I relax the muscles of judgement and operate from a place of true intuition.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is working to develop their intuition and/or any sort of channeling ability.
Upon arrival, I found that this lovely oil had leaked slightly in transit. Not wanting to waste it, I slathered it on to my wrists. Lo & behold, an essay I had been struggling to write on dreams as oracles, portals, and their importance for indigenous tradition and personal ancestral practice, more or less completed itself in a few hours. When applied intentionally, this oil is distinctly time-dilating & mind-expanding. The sea-funky smell dissipates on application. It’s close to Moon-Neptune oil in aroma & character, but distinctly stronger in its effects – tidally powerful rather than subtly influencing. I love it!
Anointing myself with this oil before my daily Vedic meditation practice has enabled me to go much deeper during my sessions. I don’t consider myself a great meditator but this oil makes me feel more confidence about my practice and helps reaffirm my commitment to continue meditating.
This offering is so beautiful! I use the oil for divination and meditation, it supports me in using ‘sonar vision’, seeing things more intuitively. I do notice that I need to be calm when I use Fomalhaut oil. When I’m in a state of overthinking and over analyzing, Fomalhaut just confronts me with the fact that my mind is going crazy (and in that sense this offering teaches me something always). When I’m ready to dive into the depth of the ocean, Fomalhaut takes me there. Thank you again Sphere and Sundry!
No other series from S+S has been a doorway to the mysterious and otherworldly than this series.
The “getting to know you” phase in particular had deep, transformative messages in and out of dream states and sleep.
I’ve literally gotten occult messages from disney characters when layering with Venus materia.
A series of unfathomable depths and possibilites.
Take me to the sea…
With candles lit and Epsom salts swirling in the tub, I applied this oil to my temples, base of neck and third eye, prepared to journey the depths of spiritual waters…
While I tend to require significant ritual/ceremony to enter truly altered states, I found myself quickly slipping into oracular vision— exploring realms beyond the veil- gently held into this world by the grounding scents of the sea.
This magic was a catalyst for oracular journeys of the stellar (sky spirit) variety and I look forward to carrying it forth with me in group trance ritual.
I would recommend this to anyone who works with scrying. It’s great for either anointing the scrying surface, the scryer, or both.
I love this series! It’s definitely helping me sleep and have very vivid dreams. I’m trying to find some lost items so I’m hoping it will assist in that as well!
Incredible oil. I tend to see clouds the shape of a whale whenever I wear it. 🙂 First time I applied it, I felt the feeling of being on the water too, like I was standing on a boat. It was incredible. Very loud (in a beautiful way), deep, series; a gentle, joyous healing that plays wonderfully with my natal Fomalhaut placements. One of my favorite series yet.
I love this series and all the ways it supports me when I dive into my divination tools. My standard MO is to overthink things (Sun+Mercury in Aquarius) so to get out of my analytic thinking space I use Fomalhaut Oil. I dig the initial waft of ocean … the scent reminds me washed up kelp beds drying in the sun. I can’t wait to pair this with the new Moon series .
This is such a deep, sleepy, special oil. I used it along with the smoke before bed and couldn’t believe how deeply I sank into the depths of my unconscious. Truly special.
I find this just like Im at the beach with something that Ive put the lid on only to find it has sand in the lid as to the screwing back on is now gritty/crunchy. It’s actually a comforting thing and put a smile on my face. The oil is significant in that I feel able to detach from my surroundings and drop quite simply into what I am intending. Divine
