Fire has been used in ritual since time immemorial, and candles are contained vessels for flame that have their own rich history of magical use and application. That being said, most candles used in ritual are only loosely associated with their correspondences through color (white for ‘good’ magic, black for ‘bad’, etc.), perhaps an image with language on a label, and sometimes a scent, almost always synthetic. There are tradition-specific methods for further empowering or ‘dressing’ candles through carving, stuffing, and anointing with herbs or oil, and practitioners who offer this as a service.

While the argument could be made that all candles are ‘magical’, or have the potential to become ‘magic’ with the right intent and processing, the candles that Sphere + Sundry offers are highly charged ‘out of the box’ and talismanic in nature. They are created for the express purpose of carrying a potent influence, tightly aligned with the powers imbued by the astrological election that marks their creation or ‘birth’. They need no further treatment on your part to make them ‘do’ what they are supposed to — they can be put on an altar and lit during appropriate times, burned as an offering to curry favor with certain intelligences, spirits, or Gods, or dedicated to a specific purpose/ working through various means, including writing on the jar or using the candle’s flame to burn sigils, etc.

Our candles are hand poured, often during the height of each operation, and made from natural soy or beeswax. Seals and names are etched into the glass, usually on the underside of the candle. Any fragrance added is 100% pure essential oil of a sympathetic nature to the work at hand. They are often poured over similarly appropriate herbs, powders, or resins and feature gem, stone, or metal keepsakes that are revealed at the end of the candle’s burn span, to be kept as a talismanic lodestone for the charge.

Exercise caution and good judgment when handling flame, and never leave candles unattended. In the case of receiving a candle in a box set, make sure to clear away the materials used to secure the items during shipping before burning, and NEVER close the lid of the box before flame or ember has been fully extinguished.

Please note that our candles are handcrafted in tight timeframes and may not be as ‘flawless’ as the commercially mass-produced candles you may be used to. Wicks may not be perfectly centered and there may be ‘wet spots’ where the wax does not perfectly adhere to the glass. Such things, if they do occur, are cosmetic in nature and do not impact the magical charge they possess.

    Jupiter’s Lightning Rod Candles

    , ,

    Virgin soy wax and a touch of ghee were melted, dyed bright blue, and poured over powdered lightning struck peach wood, fulgurite, lapis lazuli, and 24k gold leaf. These were created on the Thursday Jupiter entered Sagittarius, while the Moon and the Greater Benefic were conjunct the descending angle. Lightly scented with pure essential oils of clove, cinnamon, allspice, orange, and frankincense.

    The effects are warming, invigorating, and exciting. They create a sense of opportunity and will help draw it to you, as well as help you break away from bad luck and stagnant patterns. Burn in rituals designed for uncrossing, luck promotion, and achievement. Light in the background as you brainstorm goals and create game plans, to draw Jove’s blessings to your endeavor. Use during invocations of Jupiter or Jupitarian spirits, or during weekly rituals.

    While still warming and quickening, this, along with the spray, are the gentlest offerings in the Lightning Rod series, emphasizing Jupiter’s nurturing, wholesome qualities. Only 16 candles were created, 4 of which are reserved for box sets. 10 are being offered to clients standalone.

    Each candle is in a 2 oz glass jar and provides around 15+ hours of burn time.

    Hermanubis Candles

    , ,

    Beeswax was mixed with myrrh and dyed black before being poured over the Hermanubis herbal mix, including cemetery cypress, hops, and barley, along with some hair from a black dog. Each candle was topped with 24k gold leaf and ritually blessed by our patron, alongside the rest of the series.

    Acts as a lighthouse for the deceased, drawing them as moths to a flame. Burn on ancestral altars during offerings or to facilitate better connection and communication. Light during seances, while channeling the dead, or performing necromantic operations. Be specific in who you are trying to draw and consider employing a natron barrier as a ritual circle to keep from drawing wandering spirits.

    Can be burned as an offering to Hermanubis in exchange for guiding deceased loved ones through the other side, and helping get them to where they need to go. Light during Hermanubis operations to make invoking him easier.

    Available in a 2 oz glass jar for $72

    Regulus Candles

    , ,

    Virgin soy wax was melted and mixed with yellow and orange dyes to create a beautiful golden hue, very lightly scented with essential oils of helichrysum and frankincense.

    Algol Candles

    , ,

    Black candles were lit during the petition and prayers to Algol and oversaw the creation of most of the other items in this series. They were then melted down in time to be poured as the fixed star was rising on the Ascendant.

    Black hellebore harvested the night of, powdered (ethically, legally begotten) rattle snake rattler, and snake’s skin in black wax. Each jar features an engraving of Algol’s seal.

    It goes without saying that most Sphere + Sundry candles are made from virgin wax, but these candles had a storied and compatible history and were therefore upcycled for the operation. They were combined with additional wax, and still possess a scent from the original pillars, which includes tobacco, bergamot, and amber.

    Ten 2 oz candles were poured during this election, which provide around 15 hours of burn time. Three are being kept for personal use, three are included in Algol box sets, and four are being offered standalone.

    Please note that due to the particularly malefic nature of Algol, divination is being done on all orders placed for this series. If the results are ill-omened, we cannot ethically fill your order, and you will be refunded in full for any Algol items in your purchase.

    Degree of Exaltation Mars Candle

    , , ,

    Flaming red candles hand-poured while Mars was in the 28th degree of Capricorn, his point of peak performance. Each candle features a dose of Mars powder, made the same evening, comprised of five hand-ground herbs and resins sacred to Mars. These include hot red pepper, genuine dragon’s blood resin, and yohimbe bark, among other proprietary sympathetic ingredients, and small bits of iron and rust.

    A keepsake in the form of a bloodstone arrowhead is revealed when the candle has fully burned, to be kept indefinitely by the owner as a talismanic generator of Martial potency.

    Each candle is in a large 12 oz jar that, depending on burning habits, can provide 45+ hours of burn time. They feature a glass cap with Mars’ glyph, Agrippa’s seal of character, and the kamea or magic square, all inscribed during the operation. As their burning will often be accompanied by that of incense, they are unscented.

    The first time you burn a large candle, try to let the pool of wax get as far out as possible because it will leave a ‘memory’ in the wax and create a tunneling effect for future burns, which will greatly reduce the life of a candle. Magical candles are sometimes lit for short periods of time during prayers or petitions, so sometimes this is unavoidable. If you have issues with tunneling, there are ways of fixing it.

    Ten candles were poured, 7 were offered by Sphere + Sundry. They are now sold out.

    Algol Box – Complete Set

    , , , , ,

    Wooden boxes with sliding latches were painted during the night of the New Moon in Taurus conjunct Algol. Painted black on the outside with no distinctive seals, both for discretion and to stow away the bulk of Algol’s charge when not in use, the inside is bright red.

    The ‘ceiling’ of the box features an Algol seal, so as to represent the fixed star looking down from the heavens, and also to serve as a meditative aid while open and in use. The interior base of each box has a pattern denoting the constellation of Perseus, with a vesica piscis representing Algol’s position.

    Each box contains one Algol candle, one bottle of Algol oil, and one talismanic Algol Eye with accompanying toothpick, which can be used in the manner of any nail, thorn, or pin for the purposes of binding or maleficia. All of these items fit neatly inside the box, making for a complete set from the Algol New Moon 2018 series.

    Three Algol box sets are being offered to the public.

    Please note that due to the particularly malefic nature of Algol, divination is being done on all orders placed for this series. If the results are ill-omened, we cannot ethically fill your order, and you will be refunded in full for any Algol items in your purchase.

    Regulus Box – Complete Set

    , , , , , ,

    Wooden round ‘boxes’ painted gold and featuring a lion-heart wax design on the lid. On the interior, the seal of Regulus can be seen on the roof, with the constellation of Leo on the base. Not visible under normal circumstances, the seal and name of Regulus are both written on the bottom.

    Each box contains one Regulus candle, one bottle of Regulus oil, and one Lion-Heart talisman. All of these items fit neatly inside the box, making for a complete set from the Regulus MC 2018 series. Also includes a vial of gold leaf, herbs, resins, and gems sacred to Regulus, mixed during the night of the operation.

    Three Regulus boxes were produced for this very fine election, two of which are being offered to the public.
