Series, Exalted Sol, Waters + SpraysThis Kolonía was created with water freshly harvested from the headwaters of Mt. Shasta on the day of the 2021 Aries ingress, ritually combined with colloidal gold, grain alcohol (to a final 75% alcohol content), and essential oils on a fine Solar election the following Sunday in the second hour of Sol, as Humanity's Own Star reigned supreme conjunct the Midheaven. Turkish colognes are often sprinkled upon the hands before entering one's household or business establishment, providing some natural sanitation and also a delightful scent. Kolonía of Exalted Sol can be used in such a way, or as you would any type of Florida Water for energetic cleansing, purification, and illumination. Makes it difficult for nasties to glom on or penetrate the auric body. Shake well to integrate all of the essential oils before use. Energy Clearing Protocol For energetic cleansing, sprinkle about a half teaspoon onto the palms of the hands and gently but thoroughly rub together for 10 or so seconds, coating both sides. The hands can float 2 inches from the body or be lightly touching it. Stand and run your palms from the crown of your head down the back of the head, then start from the top again, going down the front of your face and body, all the way down to the tops of your feet. If you feel any areas "sticking", continue stroking them until energies disperse, and then proceed with downward sweeping. Continue skimming from the head downward, running your cologned hands across every surface area, including under the arms, groin, and rear, concluding with the bottoms of the feet by lifting them. You can "flick" the energy off if it feels right, or it will dissipate naturally, however you prefer. Take 10-30 seconds to close your eyes and integrate the cleansing, feeling the shift, and thank Sol for its purification and illumination, sealing the auric body from negativity. This Kolonía can also be used before performing reiki, energy work, or any other healing activity, on clients or loved ones. It can be done on the self, objects, or 3rd parties. Other Applications This can also be added to baths, floor washes, essential oil diffusers, or dishes of water for protection. Extraordinarily versatile, effective, and potent. A little goes a long way. Offered in a 1.7 oz glass woozy bottle for $33, or (very few) bulk 5 oz for $97$33.00 – $97.00$33.00 – $97.00

Series, Exalted Sol, Stickers + Swag, S+ Robert FitzgeraldSphere + Sundry welcomes back occult author Robert Fitzgerald, possessing decades of experience at the crossroads of traditional witchcraft and stellar magic, who created a piece of art and accompanying ritual set for Exalted Sol —$136.00
:The Ascension of Amoun-Ra: Raising the Pylons of the Sun
The art created for this series was exacted at the correct hour and day following several days of fasting, prayers and solar devotions. The ankh, symbol of Going Forth and of immortal life, was added to the ram's head after seeing a glowing version of it in dream. As the sun is eternal, so shall be the soul of those exalted beneath its beneficence. Thus, the piece is called 'The Ascension of Amoun-Ra' and is designed to be used as an altar image and focus of meditation.
The Ascension of Amoun-Ra: Raising the Pylons of the Sun is a votive ritual observance by which the solar sheaths of the physical, astral and etheric bodies are fortified and cleansed. For the ancient Egyptians no greater sun god existed than ram-headed Amoun-Ra. He was the literal and living embodiment of the sun. As such he established beside him for centuries a retinue of solar avatars who expressed specific attributes and powers needful for the full expansion of his cult. These were sometimes referred to as 'pylons': sentient manifestations of power which could confer upon devotees a wide array of abilities and talents. They were especially proficient at the rites of purity. 'Raising the Pyons' are designed to evoke into one's bodies and souls the characteristics of these solar hypostases, and thus exalt the Royal Uraeus Crown to the Ba-Heart of Amoun-Ra.Only 36 Amoun-Ra Print + Ritual sets are available, 12 of which are reserved for Exalted Sol Altar Boxes. Each set includes the 1/2 oz Exalted Sol Incense + Water necessary to complete the Rite. $136$136.00

Of Great Joy, she shares —$45.00
I begin to sing of Asclepius, son of Apollo and healer of sicknesses. In the Dotian plain fair Coronis, daughter of King Phlegyas, bare him, a great joy to men, a soother of cruel pangs.
And so hail to you, lord: in my song I make my prayer to thee!
This is an oil of healing and an oil for healers.
Great Joy to Mankind is dedicated to – and was crafted under the auspices of – Asclepius and was crafted to strengthen the body, soothe the mind, and calm emotional turmoil. It is an oil that fortifies health, augments health and healing protocols, and assists in fortifying and protecting healers, caregivers, and those in charge of shielding their households from harm.
We are all under a tremendous amount of stress, and an additional benefit of this oil is that it was crafted to help wash away the terrors and anxieties of living in the center of a pandemic’s maelstrom. Regular use will help you find the inner peace necessary to face life’s current challenges with strength, clarity, and grace.
Use this oil to honor Asclepius and in rituals of health and healing. Great Joy to Mankind can be utilized to lightly anoint protective equipment, health and protection amulets and talismans, to create wards and safe healing spaces, and to bless and protect the afflicted or vulnerable.
Please note: this oil is not a substitute for common sense safety precautions, and it is not a substitute for diligent mask-wearing, hand-washing, and social distancing. This is not a panacea, and we make no claims that this is a miracle cure for anything. Be sensible, be safe, do every mundane thing you can to protect yourself, your loved ones and your community, and may Asclepius the Deliverer protect us all from harm.

“So be Wise as Serpents, and Innocent as Doves.” — Matthew 10:16
These relics are a visceral, ferrous expression of two primary principles observed within an occult framework : Salubrity and Resolve.
The Asklepian or ‘Rod of Asclepius’ consists of the serpent and staff. The serpent here may be said to represent both perpetual renewal & healing as well as the dual nature of pharmakon as both panacea and poison. The staff reminds us that in times of great need we must be willing to be supported. Their respective forms are expressed in hand-wrought iron, born of the hammer & anvil in flickering cacophony that is the ancient and venerable craft of the smith.
Some preparation of material took place the evening prior (cutting, layout, etc.) and final preparations were made during pre-dawn hours the morning of the election. Offerings of cedar, juniper, fir pitch and several native artemisia species were burned in the forge and a fumigatory rite of cleansing took place.
Enough material was cut and prepared for the 13+ relics to be forged, the serpent and staff to be officially intertwined during the beneficent interstice of this potent election. The election allowed a small but adequate window in which the work was to take place.
It was an intense fifty minutes. I can’t recall the last time I worked with as much vehemence, but I did manage to meet our goal. And not without some violence against my own corpus for as the work concluded, I fell into an intense bout of very unpleasant nausea and vomiting, swiftly (and mercifully!) followed by a deep sense of wellness. This speaks precisely to the often purgative, sicken-ing nature of pharmakon and again -- to the dual-nature of the serpent as an embodiment of wisdom and rejuvenation.
As for the iron Asklepians and their care, I recommend only this: while the relics have been treated with a thin coating of wax, I recommend that upon receipt they are further coated in the accompanying oil formulated by Sphere + Sundry during the election, or one of your choosing, preferably that lends itself to the restorative and health-giving nature of Asclepius and the noble art of physik.
I pray these talismanic objects of virtue serve in whatever capacity you desire, be they employed as ceremonial foci or by iron’s physical touch as a means of removing illness and dis-ease, thereby exploiting iron’s capability in the eradication of foul spirit presences afflicting both body and soul.Only 13 were forged. Offered for $130 each.$130.00
Series, Asclepius III, Bath + Beauty, SaltsRitual baths were one of the first steps taken to cleanse those who made pilgrimage to temples of Asclepius in pursuit of healing (as detailed in the series description for Asclepius II), and salt is a tried and true agent of natural purification in ways both meta and physical. Dead Sea salt and magnesium enriched epsom, fumigated with frankincense during the Asclepius III election, combined with essential oils of frankincense, cypress, and tea tree, alongside home grown and ritually harvested herbs inherent to the election's consecrated herbal mixture. Rose of Jericho, incense cedar, and more. Draw a bath and add the mixture to the water to clear your energetic field, increase magnesium levels, and soothe and detoxify the system. 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. Occasionally pour water over the head and body, letting it swoosh away negativity impeding good health, mental, physical, and otherwise. Add a small sprinkling to many baths or larger amounts for deeper soaks in tougher circumstances. May induce sleep, best used before bed. Drink plenty of water. Offered in our standard 8 oz glass bale jar for $33, or for the first time, a 16 oz bulk pot for $66. See testimonials of Asclepius II Bath Salt for reference.$33.00 – $66.00$33.00 – $66.00
