Swamp Gator (Oil, Incense, Powder)
$33.00 – $99.00
While the goat is probably Saturn’s most commonly regarded animal patron (given its association with the sign of Capricorn itself), alligators and crocodiles too are tremendously Saturnian creatures.
Primordial… ancient… cold blooded… sedentary… quiet… lurky af… and above all, lethal.
Their lifespan is typically from one to two Saturn cycles — some documented cases being far longer — further compounding their natural alliance with the Saturnian sphere.
Two Gator sub-sets were created for this series: Swamp and Golden.
Swamp Gator is, in two words: down and dirty.
The downest and dirtiest in fact — its formulation comprised of actual swamp mud (graciously harvested by Austin’s absolute saint of a mother in the depths of Florida), gator vertebrae, gator teeth, and shavings of skin.
All of which were ethically, legally obtained…
Fun fact: the alligator population in Florida is approximately 1.3 million, and the Kingdom of Animalia is inherently eco-friendly and sustainable to harvest from in conditions where populations are healthy (in this case overly so), the animal has lived under good conditions (preferably in their native habitat), and they have come to meet a natural or necessary end.
The spent corporeal form is one of Saturn’s many gifts to the living, and making practical and magical use of these abandoned Spirit-shells is a worthy tribute to our Outermost Sphere: governor of death, of practicality, and of all well-aged and lifeless matter.
Fossilized dinosaur bone is another ingredient in the Swamp Gator sub-set, which is an invitation to explore the deepest, darkest, and most yin aspects of the Saturnian arcana (within and without).
Full disclosure: this is the most brutal and initially off-putting of any offering from Saturn in Capricorn’s coterie.
Swamp Gator is excellent for gnostic exploration of the darker aspects of nature, and facilitating shadow work. Excavate your darker features… those which remain hidden from even oneself. Incorporate them into the ego-matrix to build a more integrated, honest, and fully realized personality, or decide to banish them.
The main danger the Gator represents, is in not knowing what lurks…
In practical terms, this would be useful for direct application and magical intervention in dark circumstances where one needs protection from genuinely seedy, dangerous characters, and finds themselves already mired in circumstantial swamp muck. Or things like exploring the Tunnels of Set, or adding atmosphere to some quality H.P. Lovecraft time.
Swamp Gator’s main value for most people is going to be for exploration and incorporation of the shadow-self, and of exploring the crueler, more primordial aspects of all Nature.
Get right with the Swamp Gator in you, and with the Swamp Gators of the world.
Swamp Gator Oil is a combination of hemp and castor oils, gator vertebrae, teeth, and skin, fossilized dino bone, and swamp mud, ritually consecrated to talismanic standard during an excellent Saturn in Capricorn election. It is available in your choice of 1/2 oz standard vial ($81), or 10 ml hematite roller bottle ($61).
The Incense and Powder are made of the same, and arrive in a 1/2 oz cork top vial for $33, or very few 2 oz bulk pots for $99.
(If you do not wish to apply Swamp items directly, a fetish for their vector may be used.)
