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 😹

Still need help? Contact us…

Due to a high volume of emails, it’s not possible to respond to every request.

Correspondences regarding placed orders by existing clients have the highest priority.
If your request requires a personal response from Kaitlin, lead times are likely longer. Thank you for understanding 🙏

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 
for guidance on making your selections! Thank you.

The Goat’s Phalanges

The Goat’s Phalanges

$45.00

The long-standing GOAT of esoteric indie perfumery, Elizabeth Barrial of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Twilight Alchemy Lab, created and charged a set of 4 talismanic perfumes for Saturn in Capricorn during Sphere + Sundry’s election, inspired by various aspects of goat anatomy —

First of all the deathless gods who dwell on Olympus made a Golden Race of mortal men who lived in the time of Kronos when he was reigning in heaven. And they lived like gods without sorrow of heart, remote and free from toil and grief: miserable age rested not on them; but with legs and arms never failing they made merry with feasting beyond the reach of all evils. When they died, it was as though they were overcome with sleep, and they had all good things; for the fruitful earth unforced bare them fruit abundantly and without stint. They dwelt in ease and peace upon their lands with many good things, rich in flocks and loved by the blessed gods.

When one thinks of Saturn, joy is usually not the first word that comes to mind, but there is joy there: it is the joy of an untroubled heart and a mind in balance, the joy found in the serenity that existed in the Time Before Time.

The Goat’s Phalanges reaches back into the age of Titans. It is an oil of bringing ideas into form and an oil of grounding and guidance both from the earth itself and from primal forces beyond our comprehension. It is an oil that invokes a very specific nature of inner peace: the peace that came from a time before conflict existed. This oil honors Kronos of Elysium, King of the Golden Age.

Myrrh essential oil and tears (Commiphora myrrha and Commiphora kua), skullcap from the TAL garden (Scutellaria lateriflora), juniper berries, leaf, and essential oil (Juniperus communis), 3-year aged patchouli essential oil and patchouli root from the TAL garden (Pogostemon cablin), caraway essential oil and seed (Carum carvi), cypress essential oil (Cupressus sempervirens), spikenard essential oil and root from the TAL garden (Aralia racemosa), poplar bud (Populus nigra), clove bud and essential oil (Syzygium aromaticum), home-brewed fruit extract of dark, earthy berries, and ethically sourced goat bone. This oil is not vegan. No goats were harmed in the creation of this oil.

  1. This perfume has been such a lovely support for me during times of emotional turmoil. Every time I use it, I am able to feel grounded into myself and receive my own inner wisdom with clarity and strength. Pairs wonderfully with my Immortal Heart salve.

  2. I used this oil yesterday along with illuminer because I felt scattered and I was having a work zoom that I needed to get through grounded and with no tricky blockages in response to my ideas. I have just realised that after months of brainstorming re my personal side project which has nothing to do with the work zoom, I have had a sudden and spontaneous burst of proactively moving towards bringing things into form. Actual forms – the sculpting and casting of things and I think its use along with the illuminer may have been what prompted not one but two people offering to help me make my vision real. Within 24 hours of casually mentioning I needed equipment to get something done, there is a machine on its way to me. It’s not why I used the oil but I’m ok with the pleasing side effects.

  3. The scent is haunting and beautiful, and a little goes a long way. It connects me with a stable, grounded, serious part of myself and helps me do what needs to be done with zero drama or drag- it was helpful during a recent round of packing/schlepping (how goat-like!) It has been good to feel this Saturnian energy within myself. I notice a side effect of brief nausea from the earthier S+S offerings (Hermanubis & Saturn) so I take it slowly at first while the body acclimates.

  4. The description above captures the experience of Goat’s Phalanges perfectly. Especially this line: “the joy of an untroubled heart and a mind in balance, the joy found in the serenity that existed in the Time Before Time.” I can’t even articulate the kind of transcendence this scent transports you to — it really does feel like a realm outside of space-time as we know it. So far I haven’t used GP for any functional purposes / goal pursuit; I just take it out now and then when I want to taste that particular kind of transcendence for a moment. I feel like GP has this ineffable way of shifting my perspective and my relationship to temporality that feels really fortifying. LOVE it. Thank you!

  5. On a functional level, this bpal roots me in the best way. It’s like doing qi gong on a mountaintop. And for some reason, the scent is my favorite of the bpals that I’ve gotten so far.

  6. The smell of this perfume alone is deeply grounding, I love the earthy herbal scent. The connection to my inner peace I feel when I wear this oil is deeply healing for me, and I love pairing it with my Immortal Heart salve during particularly emotionally charged moments. Wearing this oil always reminds me that I am enough, and that I can find joy and serenity in the midst of any circumstance.

  7. This has a definite funk to it, which feels very appropriate. It’s earthy, and Saturn is very much of the material world. I put a dot of this on my knuckles before I want to put my nose to the grindstone, which involves a lot of typing, so the funk drifts up as I’m slogging away at the keyboard and it gives me the perseverance to keep going.
