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…

Please note that we are currently short staffed due to Covid-19 and the Holiday season. Sometimes we are able to respond same-day, but others are taking much longer. Thank you for your patience in the interim. We have changes in the works that should drastically improve response times in early 2021 🙏

Due to a high volume of emails, it’s not possible to respond to every request.
Correspondences regarding placed orders and by paying clients have the highest priority.

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.

    Resident Sphere + Sundry goldsmith and 5-star AstroMage Tony Mack offers to the Empress a set of custom designed talismans  —

    Modeled in hard carver’s wax and cast on March 27, 2020 at 3:15 pm EST in Williamsport Pennsylvania; the moon applying to Venus in Taurus, both approaching the midheaven on the planetary day and hour of Venus. Casting was accompanied by petition and suffumigation with S+ Venus in Taurus incense.

On the reverse is a cropped bust of the empress from Pamela Coleman Smith’s illustration in the Rider-Waite Tarot. Over her shoulder is the glyph of Venus as shown in editions of the Latin Picatrix. A portion of her silhouette shows through to the rose gold behind.

    Each talisman includes a 20” silver chain, and a keepsake pendant box bearing a wax seal of the glyph of Venus.

    Offered for $980, and includes a 1/2 oz vial of The Empress' Oil for anointing. NOTE: If you would prefer a malachite roller, please mention so in the Notes and you will be refunded the difference!

    Fruitful Mother of Thousands

    , , ,
    A talismanic perfume oil formulated on Sphere + Sundry's exquisite Venus in Taurus election (2020) by Empress Barrial of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Twilight Alchemy Lab. Of which, She shares —

    Scatter in me the seeds Of a thousand saplings. Let grow a grassy heaven. On my brow: a sun. This bliss is yours, Living World, and alone it endures. Music at midnight. Young wine. Lovers hand in hand By daylight, moonlight. Living World, hold me In your mouth,

    Slip on your frivolous shoes And dance with me. - excerpt from Nature Aria by Yi Lei translated by Tracy K. Smith and Changtai Bi

    This is an oil that celebrates all that is fertile, rich, and bountiful - an oil of abundance and growth, of sensuality and inspiration rooted in the pleasures and joys of the natural world. It is the curl of a rose petal, the honey-gold of a sunbeam, the renewing breath of spring’s first breezes. It is the generative and propagative impulse merging with the drive to express delight through art. Bliss and gladness, pleasure and exultation. This is the joy that creates new life.

    This oil is also an oil of physical beauty and charm, of self-respect and self-love. It is a glamour oil that renews and fortifies your love of yourself, your love of others, and your love of the world around you.

    Fruitful Mother of Thousands also functions as a unique lust and passion blend, one rooted in sensuality, pleasure, and luxury. This oil contains organic rosehips (Rosa rubiginosa and Rosa canina), red rose petals (Rosa damascena), hydrodistilled white rose otto essential oil (Rosa alba) and Moroccan rose absolute (Rosa damascena), apple fruit compound, apple blossoms from the TAL garden (Malus domestica), frangipani absolute (Plumeria rubra), vanilla absolute and bean (Vanilla planifolia), orris butter (Iris pallida) and orris root (Iris germanica), ambrette seed (Abelmoschus moschatus) and amber oil (Oleum succini), cubeb oil and berries (Piper cubeba), Turkish bay oil (Laurus nobilis), and rose-pink vegetal musk.

It was crafted to bring comfort and emotional succor, stability, and growth through love.

    Queen of the Honeyed Heart is also an oil of quiet, gentle power. It is not the red-hot conflagration of rage and desire for dominion, but power that stems from the genuine desire to care for others and create positive change in your life, your community, and the world.

    Queen of the Honeyed Heart is an oil of spiritual, mental, and physical grace.

    This oil contains honey absolute (Apis melliferra), Sumatran benzoin gum oleoresin and tears (Styrax benzoin), blue yarrow essential oil and herb from the TAL garden (Achillea millefolium), organic motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca), strawberry fruit compound, organic ylang ylang essential oil (Cananga odorata var. genuine), white lotus absolute (Nelumbo nucifera), pink lotus stamens (Nelumbo nucifera), organic hibiscus flowers (Hibiscus sabdariffa), and red vegetal musk.

    This oil is also an oil of kindness and compassion, both for yourself and to assist in cultivating compassion in others and compassion in the world that surrounds you.

    Immortal Heart Reliquary

    , ,
    (Rather precious) Anubis reliquaries cast on the night of the Immortal Heart by Tony Mack, which open to reveal a small cavern, ready to receive whatsoever the client chooses. Keep as an altar piece, or carry along your daily Way. Fill with ashes or personal concerns of some Beloved, magical powders, or whatsoever your heart desires —

    Modeled in hard carver’s wax and cast in fine silver on September 16th 2020 on the planetary night and hour of the moon; during the new moon in the third Decan of Virgo. This casting was not accompanied by petition or suffumigation; its focus being on one’s personal relationship with the deceased.

    A reliquary box, inspired in part by the canopic jars of ancient Egyptian funerary rites. The reliquary bears carvings in high relief: two versions of lilies, as observed on Egyptian funerary stele, flank the sides; and on the back a scarab pointing toward the subterranean. The front is set with a white mother of pearl cabochon. On the lid of the piece is a seated canid form of Anubis.

    If so desired, the lid can be sealed permanently by folding the silver prong over the loop of the lid with a simple hand tool such as needle nosed pliers. The reliquary was made for the purpose of containing a small amount of materials (remains, hair, grave dirt, etc) of the deceased, though its purpose is up to you. It is recommended that very minute material such as cremated ashes be mixed into an amalgam [such as soft wax] before being deposited, as the lid is not hermetically sealed.

    Seven such reliquaries are being offered to the public for $579; 3 being set aside for large Immortal Heart Altar Box Sets.

    Be silent in that solitude, Which is not loneliness — for then The spirits of the dead, who stood In life before thee, are again In death around thee, and their will Shall overshadow thee; be still.

It eases the pain of grieving, opens doorways to the liminal space between states of being, and enables you to better understand life by confronting and embracing death.

    Asclepius III Talismans

    , , , , , ,
    Talismanic goldsmith and AstroMage par excellence Tony Mack returns, delivering unto Sphere + Sundry our largest run of talismans yet, designed for affordability as much as efficacy —

    Modeled in hard carver’s wax and cast on April 12, 2020 at 12:39 am EST in Williamsport Pennsylvania, moon applying within three degrees of the fixed star Rasalhague, rising on the ascendant at 22 Sagittarius. Casting was accompanied by petition and suffumigation with S+ Asclepius II incense.

    Cast in fine silver with calcined cypress, sage, and cedar. One side of the coin, carved in relief, is the messenger serpent of Asclepius (who in myth placed a healing herb into the mouth of a dead snake, resurrecting it; giving Asclepius/Polyidus the knowledge to restore life to the prince Glaucus.) On the reverse is the a lyre accented with serpent motifs, framing the fixed star alpha ophiuchi; an image recognizing Asclepius as son of Apollo, and the moon’s applying trine to the sun in its exaltation at the moment of the election.

    Each coin includes a keepsake box bearing the wax seal of the Asclepius rod.

    To pass savings on to the client, each Asclepius talisman comes with a Rose of Jericho and instructions for recharging with it. They can also be anointed with any Asclepius oil we offer. $297

    Great Joy to Mankind

    , , ,
    A single talismanic perfume crafted by the one and only Mrs. Barrial of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Twilight Alchemy Lab for Sphere + Sundry's Asclepius III election, following up on Thy Vig'rous Force Inspires and Skill'd to Heal Mankind from Asclepius II. Of Great Joy, she shares —

    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.

    Forged Rods of Asclepius III

    , , , , , ,
    Re-ups of the Snake-bound rods debuted for Asclepius II, forged during the equivalent Asclepius III election per his location by sorcerous blacksmith Cody Dickerson of Borealis Ironworks. Every talismanic rod includes a vial of Asclepius III for regular anointing. Mount above doors or beds to safeguard good health and act as a protective ward, or store upon altars or under mattresses for the same purpose. Can also be successfully employed as an energetic scraping tool by skimming it across the body in ways similar to the cleansing method suggested on the Son of Apollo Kolonía page, cutting cords and reclaiming your own energetic boundaries. Text and images lifted from the initial collaboration —

    “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.
