IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are completely unfamiliar with the figure of Asclepius and Sphere + Sundry’s Asclepius line, please begin by reading the writeup for Asclepius II. What follows is a characterization of how our various series differ and assumes the reader already has a basic understanding of who Asclepius is and what his materia can be used for, covered by the second edition’s writeup.
Shortly after midnight on April 12th 2020, the waters of Mt. Shasta broke via copper alembic, initiating ritual labor for the third iteration of Sphere + Sundry’s Asclepius series. The election featured the Moon Rising and applying to a tight conjunction with the Divine Physician’s patron star, Ras Alhague, in trinal application to the Aries Sun — fresh off its degree of Exaltation — shining an unseen light on the IC of the chart.
Not only is the Sun (at best and at heart) a source of holistic healing and cohesion, as Apollo’s Son, Asclepius is a direct offshoot of Humanity’s own Star, embodying a specialized distillation of this facet of Sol’s capabilities. Augmented by the wisdom of healing via plant and stone taught to Asclepius by his tutor Chiron (the “Wounded Healer”), and the Serpent’s intimate understanding of transmutation and toxicity, the basis for the Divine Physician’s power is laid bare on the table of operation.
(Altar) table of (ritual) operation, as it were.
Asclepius’ relationship with the Sun goes beyond his genesis, as the writeup for Asclepius II reveals, for the Divine Physician achieved such mastery over the health and healing of mankind that he came to wield the power of resurrection, enabling humanity to overcome death itself. This, creating an untenable excess of Hadean vacancies and disturbing the Divine Order (for what separates Humans from Gods, if not immortality?) caused him to be excommunicated from the Earth, yeeted by Zeus to his final resting place among the Stars, taking the constellational form of the Serpent Bearer. Or as we say today, Ophiuchus — falsely/ popularly known as the “13th sign”.
It is through this stellar vector that the medicine of Asclepius can be dispensed to mankind, relying principally on the brightest star in his constellation at 22° Sagittarius. This astro-magical innovation, inspired by the work of Bernadette Brady, was introduced for the first time in the modern day by Austin Coppock in “A Feast of Starlight” — the opening contribution to an anthology he co-edited with Daniel Schulke, The Celestial Art. This connection was more widely circulated and popularized by the production of the first and subsequent flagship Asclepius series from Sphere + Sundry, and was quickly assimilated into the wider field, as though stemming from established canon and the Books of Olde.
Synchronistically, Asclepius also features in Demetra George’s offering to the same publication, “Thessalos of Tralles: On the Virtues of Herbs”, making him a distinct Spirit-Patron of The Celestial Art itself. And as an aside, George’s translation of the Harvesting Prayer of Thessalos (page 94), in combination with astrological timing, is employed in the ritual harvest of herbs for this and all series produced by Sphere + Sundry.
Given the undeniable strength and support of the Sun featured by this election in particular, Asclepius III offered a unique opportunity to highlight healing components of a Solary nature, such as calendula, St. John’s wort, goldenseal, yellowdock, 24k gold, and more, resulting in the Son of Apollo sub-set of offerings. The bulk of this writeup explores their subtle differences, which must be delineated to empower each client to select which Asclepius items are best suited to their unique ailments and/ or constitution (especially when choosing between oils, incenses, and powders).
Son of Apollo vs. Asclepius the Third (III)
To the shock of no dweller at the intersection of astrology and myth, Son of Apollo items possess the warmest and brightest qualities of any Asclepius series to date.
Keep in mind that does not make them hot. The original Asclepius formulation was pretty cooling, so interpret “warmth” on the sliding Asclepius scale upon which it is intended. Son of Apollo items provide moderate warming and yang activation, but as far as the existing catalogue, are still far more temperate than, for example — Golden Sol, Luminous Crown, Mars in Scorpio, Jupiter in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s Lightning Rod, and St. Expedite.
If one were to liken SOA to a Golden Sol lite in some sense, they would not be wrong, but as previously discussed, Asclepius lends additional support to the process of transformation and healing than Sol alone, making it perhaps a better fit in cases where application of Solar materia triggers an excess of pain or sadness. Those things are still likely to manifest, but Asclepius can aid in moving through it and metabolizing those processes, leading to faster integration and progress. It does not possess the leadership or fame-promoting qualities of dedicated Sun material, but does aid in the process of Solar-powered healing and recovery. So(u)l retrieval, some may say.
In constitutional terms, SOA would be an excellent choice if a malady stems from a yang deficiency or is the result of excess cold or damp, as the Sun’s nature is heating and drying. They are also phenomenal allies for “Light Work”, the virtually unspoken of (in serious/ spoopy Occult circles) inverse of “Shadow Work”, wherein excavations of one’s inner light and its integration with the self and wider universe are of prime purpose. There are certainly things to be desired in regards to New Age and New Thought approaches, but they’re not without their good tech for better living 😉
Son of Apollo items help to illuminate and elevate the healing process, and can be of special service to those suffering down and depressive states, or who find themselves in the process of overcoming internal limitations imposed on their own shine. Its activating qualities call to productive action and turn one’s attention to the Golden Linings at the edge of any difficult scenario.
Given the Sun’s position on the IC of the chart, it may also help with therapeutic explorations surrounding family of origin and deeper integration of formative experiences, enlightening the process of self and even ancestral discovery, especially of patriarchal lineages.
The phrase “Healing begins at Home” has echoed through dream-time following pre-bed application. Son of Apollo’s impact on sleep is the most active of any Asclepius series, consciousness trailing closer to the surface, perhaps lending itself to interesting and active lucid dreaming experiences.
In natal terms, if the Sun rules the 1st, the sect light, or is in a special position to aid in matters of health for a given nativity, that can also be a nudge toward the Son of Apollo edition — or in the case of desiring something less yang, then the standard Asclepius III, which was created on the same Sun-heavy election, but in more moderated and purgative form by nature of its formulary.
Asclepius III items are re-ups of the classic recipes familiar and beloved by existing clients, including ritually harvested home-grown white sage native to Southern Oregon, Rose of Jericho, cypress, rosemary, frankincense, and water freshly drawn from the headwaters of Mt. Shasta. It is excellent for energetic cleansing and routine application for nearly all that ails, as is the second edition. It also includes a wider array of items to choose from.
vs. Asclepius II
Typically when debuting a new edition of a prior series, any items remaining from the past iteration are offered at a reduced price so long as they remain. That will not be the case in regards to Asclepius II, because its election featured Jupiter tightly conjunct the Divine Physician’s star, a harvest possible about every 12 years (at most), other chart factors permitting. It was a special and rare moment, and is likely the best Asclepius choice for those whose health significations are tied to Jupiter in the natal, or who want the most gentle version of Asclepius available. The spoonful of sugar that makes the medicine go down.
vs. Asclepius I
Although the first Asclepius series has been sold out for some time, it bears mention because clients who still have it in their arsenal or possess familiarity with its effects may be curious to explore how it compares to the others. Maiden Asclepius was the most purgative and energetically antiseptic of them all, resulting in the most intense reports of healing crises. The presence of Jupiter and the Sun in subsequent iterations provide more of an energetic buffer against the chaffing of the process inherent to healing, purgation, transformation, and recovery.
Some people (myself included) preferred that to the subtler Jupiter-influence of Asclepius II, because it enabled more direct engagement with the process, essentially mandating participation in one’s healing journey.
They all work, just slightly differently.
Allow the following comparison table to serve as a quick-reference guide…￼
If all this is too advanced, go with your gut, and when in doubt, divine!

Great Joy to MankindAsclepius III, Series, Talismanic PerfumesA 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. 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.

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.$130.00

The hands can float 2 inches from the body or be lightly touching it.
