S+ Ashley Ayres, S+ Austin Coppock, Series, Sundry, Waters + SpraysThis is the result of a standalone project one and a half years in the making, formulated by long-time Martial arts practitioner and student of TCM Ashley Ayres, in collaboration with fellow martial artist, electional astrologer, and ritualist Austin Coppock. It was created during a supremely fine Mars in Capricorn election, the red planet rising in its hour, fortified by Jupiter in Scorpio on the midheaven, and anchored by a stalwart, exalted Taurus Moon. As always, the chart can be found in the image gallery. The Forgemaster's Iron Palm liniment is a specialized form of jow, intended to warm, strengthen, and fortify, in addition to providing the expedited healing properties of other more generalized dit da jows. It can be used in the formal context of iron palm (or shin, or foot, etc.) training, but it also provides energetic and magical properties encapsulated by the Mars election itself. It serves as a form of exterior armor and attunes one's vessel to the Martial sphere in a way that is both productive and invigorating. Apply and rub well into the skin before and/ or after workouts or combat, whether of a metaphoric or physical nature. For a deeper dive into the workings of this supremely fine, well aged formula, Austin writes —$25.00 – $55.00
The furnace blazes, the iron glows. Blood burns in the hammer-arm of the blacksmith. Stubborn metal becomes malleable, open to convincing arguments from the hammer and the strong hand that wields it.
Fire, iron, and blood. This is the holy trinity of Mars, as crucial for creation as it is for destruction. While many know Mars as the Warrior, the red planet is equally the Smith. In the Smith we see the constructive side of Mars, the blood, sweat, and tears necessary to shape and re-shape our lives, our bodies, ourselves.
The Smith’s alchemical action is an especially apt metaphor for the transformation of the body. The layers of effort required to re-forge the body are quintessentialy martial, and there is no exercise regimen as close to the forge as Iron Palm.
Iron Palm refers to a family of limb-training methods which strengthen the skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones for both defensive and offensive purposes. Many styles also emphasize the internal side, cultivating increased qi emission capacity for both striking and healing purposes.
Though there are many variations, the training almost always consists of a daily routine of hitting progressively more resilient materials. A canvas bag of bean, then stones, then metal. Though the results are dramatic, the training process is incremental, with as much attention paid to healing and perfect recovery as to anything else.
Over the years, a great number of liniments have been created for this purpose. Generally referred to as dit da jow, they are widely available and widely used for general athletic purposes well outside of the specific practice of an Iron Palm regimen.
The Forgemaster’s Dit Da Jow is one of these Iron Palm formulae, but with a Sphere + Sundry twist. This Jow was created in a fully ritual manner and at a precisely elected astrological time.
Prayers to Mars the Forgemaster were intoned to bless and empower this tincture at the outset of the operation. The operators were consecrated to the red work, and the medicine vessels adorned with magic square, seal, and sigil.
The elected time seemed a spectacularly appropriate and rare moment for this work. It was the Day and Hour of Mars, with the red planet exalted in Capricorn and on the Ascendant. This powerful, earthy Mars was further supported by a trine from an exalted Moon in Taurus, and meanwhile, Jupiter in Mars-ruled Scorpio crowned the zenith (MC). Not only was Mars strong, but Mars, the Rising, Moon, and Sun were all in Earth signs in order to ensure that the planet’s iron blessings were sufficiently rooted in the very bodily goal of this creation.
After the evocations were said, the herbal and animal ingredients were sealed in their alchemical bath for 18 months.
The result, the Forgemaster’s Dit Da Jow, is not only rich with the spirit and energy of this powerful Mars election, it also possesses the excellent properties bestowed by the materia of the formulation itself.
The basis for this recipe is the Iron Palm formula of Yu Cheung (1894- 1952), one of the famed Five Tigers of Canton. His iron palm feats were famously documented in the early 1900's by photographers, and though his stone-shattering exploits are too numerous to cover here, there are entire books dedicated to his training methods. Crucially, he was known not just his power of his hands, but also their sensitivity.
This formula was designed by him to cultivate both strength and softness. Protection for the hand, energy gates, and organ systems while also maximizing sensitivity and the capacity to express qi for both healing and striking purposes. Yu Cheung’s formula is the basis for this liniment, though it has been modified in small ways for reasons of both ethics and efficacy.
This liniment is designed to unblock the qi flow, activate blood movement, relax tendons and ligaments and increase bone strength. The two types of qi this formula stimulates are wei qi or “defensive/guardian energy” and regular organ qi. This formula activates both in harmony, and is one of the many reasons it is superior to a store-bought dit da jow.
Forgemaster’s Dit Da Jow is formulated to facilitate the healing of bruises , tendons, sinews, and bones, and to reduce pain, strengthen blood vessels, reduce swelling, and mitigate blood stagnation. It also protects the meridians and mobilizes both protective and organ qi for health and vitality.
The Forgemaster’s Dit Da Jow is, of course, perfect for an Iron Limb regimen, but has a number of other uses. Both physically and energetically, it is an ideal pre- and post- workout liniment for any martial striking practice, such as boxing and kickboxing. More broadly, it can be used to ready and fortify the muscles, tendons, and joints in preparation for any athletic activity, and to facilitate the swift healing of bruises. Magically, it is appropriate for works of fortification and the cultivation of personal power.Bottled and a portion made available to the public on the first Tuesday after Mars returned to Capricorn in 2020, a year and a half after creation.

Blood enhancing additions for virility and masculine potency are also present, in the form of horny goat weed, tongkat ali, yohimbe, and others, in a base of organic olive oil. This was formulated with the explicit intention of creating a user-friendly, non-toxic, and temperate Mars oil.

Mars in Scorpio, Series, Waters + SpraysIn the pre-dawn hour of Mars as the red planet rose in Scorpio on day 1 of 2020, iron rich well water was drawn from the depths of the earth to fill the interior still pot for this Mars in Scorpio hydrosol. Herbs and gems of a classical Martial nature, including red ginseng, scorpion pepper, black and pink peppercorns, bloodstone, and red jasper were combined with sundry ingredients used in Hoodoo and Conjure for victory, strength, and potency, such as High John the Conqueror Root, Devil's Shoestring, and Devil's pod. A small piece of the cast iron grilled offering steak also thrown in. Distillation via copper alembic was initiated at the start of the ritual operation and left to generate throughout the course of the day, each bottle being placed upon the working altar after completion, and aged for a full lunar cycle before being bottled and made available to the public. The result is a potent and user-friendly mist that can be applied as an aura and body spray before physical activities and work sessions to amp productivity, create laser like focus, gain self-sufficiency, and promote strategic intelligence, rational thinking, and remain calm in the face of offensive and defensive maneuvering. Use to win negotiations and arguments. A great workout and weight loss aid, helpful for those trying to hold themselves accountable on paths of yang oriented self-improvement. Increases visual interest and makes other's pay more attention to what you say and do. Boosts your intimidate check. Stamps out lazy and whiney impulses. Increases pain tolerance. Full disclosure: this hydrosol doesn't smell delicious. If you want something pretty, turn elsewhere, for like dignified Mars himself, this one's a bit musky. It'll get the job done, but note that doesn't necessarily mean you'll love doing the work, just that Mars is content with being joyless and suffering for the sake of achievement. Application over time will help you develop the grit, resolve, and inner steel necessary to execute any mission, or to win any war. Side effects include a tendency toward myopia and getting sucked into the depths of a thing, increased sweating and body odor. Other series can be used in conjunction to guide and moderate the influence, including Venus for sexual purpose, and others.

Mars in Scorpio, Powders, SeriesOrganic herbs and gems of a classical Martial nature, including red ginseng, scorpion pepper, black and pink peppercorns, bloodstone, and red jasper were combined with sundry ingredients famed in Hoodoo and Conjure for victory, strength, and potency, such as High John the Conqueror Root, Devil’s Shoestring, and others, in addition to yang potency enhancers such as horny goat weed, yohimbe, and tongkat ali. These were combined and ritually suffumigated with Mars' Exaltation Degree incense during the hour of Mars, as the zodiac's soldier rose over the eastern horizon in Scorpio following a lengthy entreaty for his empowerment.

Mars in Scorpio, Oils + Perfumes, SeriesScorpion had been intentionally omitted as an ingredient in the original Mars in Scorpio formula to reduce potential for malefic fallout, be less toxic, and more user-friendly — good for regular application by a wider variety of people for practical and remedial purpose. Throughout its lunar cycle of gestation, dream and omen pointed to the fact that Scorpion should in fact feature, so a round of divinations were performed to see which form that should take. I had anticipated it would be the powder or incense since those are things that appeal most exclusively to fellow mages in their own spellwork, but the tarot revealed otherwise. The reading indicated the Mars in Scorpio oil was already ideally mixed, as the goal had been to "temper" its malefic nature and the card pulled was literally Temperance upright, but also that adding Scorpion to a sub-batch would produce the kind of result you never turn down — The Emperor upright. Thus, 10 venomous scorpions were ground to a fine powder on Saturn's day and Mars' hour, and a small amount was dispersed throughout each vial of Emperor Edition Mars in Scorpio oil, which also features 24k gold and a different essential oil blend befitting its darker, more lethal nature. Use in extreme cases of conflict and danger, to invoke the spirit and allegiance of Emperor and Scorpion energy. Not intended for regular application for most people, but for those who need to bring a bigger weapon to the gunfight than a temperate Mars provides, perhaps by those working in high competition sectors, or find themselves vulnerable to particularly nasty enemies. Arrives in a 1/2 oz (4 dram) glass vial for $75$75.00$75.00
Incense, Mars in Scorpio, SeriesOrganic herbs and gems of a classical Martial nature, including red ginseng, scorpion pepper, black and pink peppercorns, bloodstone, and red jasper were combined with sundry ingredients famed in Hoodoo and Conjure for victory, strength, and potency, such as High John the Conqueror Root, Devil’s Shoestring, and others, in addition to yang potency enhancers such as horny goat weed, yohimbe, and tongkat ali. These were combined and ritually suffumigated with Mars' Exaltation Degree incense during the hour of Mars, as the zodiac's soldier rose over the eastern horizon in Scorpio following a lengthy entreaty for his empowerment. Election chart in the image gallery. Pure and uncut, ground with the addition of ammoniacum gum and made self-igniting during the day and hour of Mars.

Series, Mars in Scorpio, Attuning TincturesHorny goat weed, maca root, yohimbe bark, fo-ti, longjack, tongkat ali, and tribulus fruit were ritually suffumigated and tinctured in top shelf bourbon under the auspices of the Mars in Scorpio series election. Designed to enhance yang potency and drive, whether it be in the bedroom or the battlefield. Energetically and magically speaking, this attuning tincture is just as efficacious for women and non-binary individuals as it is men. For more on that, and how this election is specifically productive for enhancing desire and sexual performance, see the full series writeup. Easily guiden by chosen activity and supplementation from other series. Warming. Offered in a 1/2 oz dropper bottle for $30 Important: 100% of the ingredients in this formula were named in the first sentence of the description. Many of these occur in "male enhancement" herbal supplements and may cause hormonal disruption, especially in favor of increasing male hormones and impacting blood flow, in alignment with the planet Mars as karaka for masculine hormones and bleeding. It could very well impact the efficacy of birth control. Also note: While this contains nothing inedible or poisonous, it was not created in a commercial kitchen to GMP standards, so it is not suitable or intended for consumption. Use externally to anoint yourself (nowhere sensitive) or objects. Keep this (and all our wares) out of reach of children. Do not use while pregnant or trying to get pregnant. Any internal consumption undertaken at the user’s sole risk and liability.$30.00$30.00

Mother Algol, Series, Waters + SpraysConsecrated Algol herbal base, including black hellebore root and leaf, belladonna flower, mummified rattle snake, rattler, snake's skin, diamond, and more, immersed in organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar and sulfur during the height of the Full Moon in Taurus conjunct the fixed star Algol, 2019. The color is the natural result of the ingredients imbuing, left to gestate at the edge of the woods for two Lunar cycles, making for a ridiculously potent elixir, unparalleled for extreme magical protection, acts of counter-magic, and necessary, well-considered maleficia. Sours, darkens, and promotes acrid toxicity. I do not recommend application to one's person, or even in interior spaces.

Mother Algol, Series, Talismans + ReliquariesThe design for these Gorgon talismans was inspired by the use of convex mirrors used to not only reflect, but refract negative energies, and provide wider survey in bagua mirrors typically placed above doors in Feng Shui.

Mount externally, above entryways or in the direction of harm you know is being directed toward you. The back has a sticker which can be peeled off in order to stick it to a surface. Rubbing the image with a small amount of oil conceals the Medusa image, allowing for even more covert operation. Two of these are being offered standalone for $213, the rest being offered to the public are included with box sets and Watchtowers. Please note that due to the particularly malefic nature of Algol, divination is being done on all orders placed for this series.

Shoutout to long-time Renaissance AstroMage Christopher Warnock of Renaissance Astrology, who himself created etched talismanic Algol mirrors many years ago. I did not know about them before designing/ executing this project, but after showing a friend my own, they mentioned having gotten something similar from Esquire Warnock in the past, so I would like to pay homage by linking to them 😊$213.00$213.00

And to Phorcys Ceto bore… the Gorgones who, beyond the famous stream of Okeanos, live in the utmost place toward night, by the singing Hesperide: they are Sthenno, Euryale, and Medousa, whose fate is a sad one, for she was mortal, but the other two immortal and ageless both alike.
This is an oil for the Gorgons – for veneration, prayer, and evocation. It is an oil of fierce and fearsome protection dedicated to the Gorgons and crafted under the watchful eye of Algol. This is a chorus of screams of primordial rage, this is a stony primeval bulwark that defends against curses. This is a guardian oil, snake-kissed and armored with unyielding scales of ekplektos, krúoeis, and déos.
Then he took up his man-surrounding, much-emblazoned forceful shield, a thing of beauty, around which ran ten rings of bronze, and on it twenty pale-shining disks of tin, and in the very center was one of dark enameled blue. And crowning this a bristling Gorgon face stared out with dreadful glare, and Fear and Flight about her; and the shield’s baldric was of silver, and on it a blue-dark serpent writhed, with three heads turned in all directions, growing from a single neck.
This is a protection oil that defends you by striking terror into those who would do you harm; it will hone your wrath, your anguish, and your fury into a blackened, hissing shield that deflects any malicious intent. This oil utilizes pure, unmitigated fear to protect you from your enemies.
