    Exalted Luna Postpartum Tincture

    , ,
    The TCM classic postpartum combination of red date, red date seed, and goji berry for building the blood and recuperation, alongside organic and wildcrafted galactagogic and adaptogenic herbs consecrated during Exalted Luna's election, tinctured in a combination of vodka and organic cane alcohol for maximum extraction. Can be added to water, tea, or juice. As its creator, I chose to use this preparation internally to help with mood, appetite, and milk supply during my postpartum period, and took two droppers 1 to 2 times per day. For that reason, a large 2 oz bottle is available. Offered in 1 oz ($66) and 2 oz ($99) glass bottles, with flat cap for long-term storage, dropper bulb, and 5 ml bottle on the side. Full ingredients list, organic or wildcrafted: red date/ jujubee, goji berry, shatavari root, fenugreek, motherwort, oat straw, raspberry leaf, blessed thistle, milk thistle seed, alfalfa, oatmeal, wild yam root, ashwagandha, and hops. IMPORTANT WARNING: Fenugreek can cause interactions with certain medications. Research this if necessary. These herbs, like all intensely yin or yang formularies, can impact hormonal balance when taken orally. For a more appropriate all-purpose (rather than postpartum) Lunar Attuning Tincture, click here. Note: Due to the religious nature of our offerings, Sphere + Sundry's herbal preparations are not created in a commercial kitchen to GMP standards. They cannot be recommended for internal consumption. Any internal consumption is undertaken at the user's sole risk and liability. Tinctures can always be added to diffusers or applied topically.  Postpartum items do not ship until Monday the 24th.

    Exalted Luna’s Postpartum Steep + Sitz Dyad

    , , ,
    A two-piece set — The first jar is comprised of organic herbs (ingredients list + warning below) consecrated alongside our Exalted Luna series. Chosen for their Lunar and Jupitarian allegiance, naturally empowered to calm inflammation, subdue soreness, and settle the Mind-Body complex. As an herbal steep, it was formulated with the triangular function of sitz bath decoction, adaptogenic, galactagogic [milk producing] tea, and Lunar floor wash. The second jar is epsom salts, enchanted with powdered Exalted Luna Powder / Incense blend and essential oils of frankincense, myrrh, mugwort, and hyssop.

Full ingredients list of herbal component — all organic or wildcrafted: shatavari root, calendula, goat's rue, red clover, fenugreek, motherwort, oat straw, raspberry leaf, blessed thistle, milk thistle seed, alfalfa, wild yam root, ashwagandha, hops.

    Talismanic Nursing Cups

    , ,
    Inspired by the Silverettes acquired in anticipation of my own postpartum experience, in the lead-up to Exalted Luna's working, I asked Tony if he would be willing to create Talismanic Nursing Cups during the operation. Ever the gentleman (and scholar!), he enthusiastically obliged —

    Moon in Taurus Nursing Cups

    Modeled in hard carver's wax, and cast in fine .999 silver. Around the outer edge in high relief are the 'characters of the moon' from book I, chapter 33 of H. Cornelius Agrippa’s ‘Three Books of Occult Philosophy’.

    Silver nursing cups are a breastfeeding aid designed to alleviate soreness and promote healing during breastfeeding. Cast from pure .999 fine silver, these reusable and durable dome-shaped cups act as a protective barrier over cracked or sore nipples. The natural antimicrobial properties of silver contribute to preventing infections and creating a comfortable environment for healing. Worn inside a bra, silver nursing cups provide comfort and shield from further irritation caused by contact with clothing. They allow air circulation while offering a non-toxic aid for breastfeeding mothers seeking relief. These cups were cast thicker than other nursing cups so as to provide more efficient transference of heat to aid in cooling and reduce inflammation. *Silver nursing cups are not a substitute for addressing latch problems or other breastfeeding issues. They serve as a supportive tool in the healing process, providing mothers with a reusable and effective aid for managing soreness during their breastfeeding stage.

    Fine silver nursing cups arrive in a keepsake pine and burlap jewelry box bearing a wax seal of the moon.

    These cups can be worn as Talismans outside of nursing purposes, and even used as tiny offering cups atop Lunar altars. Since each is its own Talisman, the Client technically receives two instead of one. Five sets were created in total, only four of which are being offered to the public ($999). Note that traditional Silverettes can be Talismanified at home using a diamond tipped stylus! Just make sure to use a wonderful election! Postpartum items do not ship until Monday the 24th.

    Lip / Nip Balm of Exalted Luna

    , , ,
    It has long been on my wishlist to offer some form of lip-based materia, to magically empower the speech, lips, and tongue specifically, for use in ritual and practical magic. Here our firstborn [of Form] is! This herbal infusion of organic calendula, marshmallow root, and plantain in organic olive oil and jojoba, was consecrated alongside the Exalted Luna series during Austin Coppock's choice of the finest election Jupiter conjoining the Moon in Taurus had to offer. Now that the Greater Benefic has moved into Gemini, one like it cannot be seeded for 11 years [from initial release]. Originally formulated as a balm for nursing mothers to provide relief to sore, chapped nipples [Luna rules the breasts and babies, in addition to feeding, soothing, and nurturing...], it works just as well upon on the lips, expanding its wondrous potentials! Combined with organic beeswax, organic shea butter, and the lightest touch of frankincense, myrrh, mugwort, and hyssop essential oils. Unscented is also available, and is more desirable when applied as a nipple balm during the nursing phase. Offered in the Client's selection of 3/4 oz sliding tin ($36), or standard chapstick tube ($21) Photos coming soon! Postpartum items do not ship until Monday the 24th.

IMPORTANT: This series is a small subset of Exalted Luna, intended primarily for postpartum support. It is not widely applicable to most people, and the write-up likely won’t be of interest to anyone who isn’t curious about Lucian’s birth story (though there are select magical elements!). Feel free to redirect to any other series if none of this applies to you : )

When every important event in one’s life, personally and professionally, happens in a carefully coordinated set of intentionally elected moments, attempting to give birth is a special form of kryptonite.

Especially *natural* birth, which had been the plan since around 7-months, when we shifted from a traditional (but exceptional!) OBGYN in a birthing center, to an inflatable tub in the center of the bedroom, complete with midwife, backup midwife, and doula.

“Your body is built for this!”

All 9 candles from the Luna in Cancer and Exalted Luna workings were placed upon the birthing Altar, with fresh flowers and the star projector. The tarp, blankets, oxytocin playlist, and birthing balls were all at the ready, as were the necessary Talismans + Materia.

But, as the cards had foretold… the due date passed, with no signs of progress.

To make matters complicated, after occupying the perfect position for months, Lucian had flipped “sunny side up”, and no amount of sleeping on the left, inversions, or asymmetrical stair climbing seemed to make a difference.

Night after night, week after week, we walked the driveway circling the house, talking about when he would come. Speculating as to what he might be waiting for.

Then, at a rather peculiar [out of] place, a frog crossed our path.

Note was taken. The Froggy subset employed.

That night, a Dream was had. An Ancestor was interfering.

Divination indicated Austin was the one to do the ritual work of intercession, and before he had finished, the first real sign of impending labor had occurred.

We couldn’t help but laugh when our midwife mentioned the term for cephalic, occiput posterior presentation (the position Lucian was still in) was referred to as “star gazing” in her native tongue; this as between contractions Austin and the doula supported me in the strangest of positions, still trying to remedy the situation.

Fast forward a literal 50 hours (two days and two nights!) of back labor, an IV and two catheters later… when I was informed that we would have to transfer to the hospital.

The photo above makes this point in the timeline look so tranquil [3x laugh emoji!]
There are no pictures from this late stage…

I begged and pleaded, to please keep going. We are SO CLOSE!

“I can give you 15 more minutes, then we have to go…”

I crab walked the stairs, naked and sweating, gutturally pushing with every Gods-loving ounce between them.

“Let’s get this for the carpet…”

FUCK THE CARPET

I could FEEL HIM with my fingertips!

“I’m at the threshold of my licensure…”

The maximum amount of time to push in a home birth scenario had been reached, legally speaking.

“These guidelines exist for a reason… there really could be something wrong… we do have to go…”

What followed was the worst car ride of both our lives, down the half mile bumpy-ass gravel driveway to the hospital that was closest, but that we had never set foot in before.

Our midwife, sitting beside me in the back seat of her car — presumably in case I gave birth in it! — as Austin drove, warned me that she had called ahead, and that the doctor on call was… not her favorite.

I clutched the Divine Coterie Talisman, which had been around my neck for the duration, and prayed for the help of the Divine Physicians.

The adrenaline of transfer had kicked the contractions into high gear. The spell of trance that had been hard-cultivated over the last two days was broken, and there was no longer any mental shield for the unmedicated pain happening with every seemingly unending contraction.

The look on the receptionists faces as I was wheeled into the lobby, screaming like some cliché sitcom, was a thing to behold, even from my sorry perspective.

The unfavorite doctor approached.

“I see you were previously in the care of Dr. Original OBGYN, would you like me to call her in?”

“OH GOD YES PLEASE RIGHT NOW”

The kindest anesthesiologist began installing the epidural as we waited for Dr. Savior’s arrival.

Who was SO kind and SO sweet, and not gloaty at all about my ricocheting back into the traditional medical system after a botched attempt at home birth.

And amazingly, after a brief palpating, she exclaimed happily — Lucian had flipped!

“It must have happened during transport…”

Given this, we engaged in another hour and a half of coached pushing.

“He’s been in there a long time….”
“His heart rate is slowing…”
“Shoulder dystocia…”
“Not worth the risk…”

I took off my Asclepius IV Talisman pre-op, being comforted and reassured by the incredible birthing team that had assembled — from home to hospital, past and now present — that our own Divine Coterie was manifesting in real-time to make this happen. To deliver our baby boy — who through all of this had not shown any signs of distress [until now] — at long last, safely into this World.

I cried, mourning the fact that despite our every preparation, our every attempt and commitment to bring our child into a peaceful, loving environment without unnecessary interventions, had gone so very sideways.

They wheeled me into the operating room.

“Where’s Austin?”
“He’ll be in shortly…”

Minutes later, to the serendipitous recording of a nurse exclaiming “That is a VERY SIZABLE CHILD!”, Lucian had joined us on the Outer.

They cleared the meconium from his lungs and tummy, dada by his side, before laying him awkwardly across my neck; tears of relief rolling from my face onto his own. The closest thing we’d have to a golden hour.

“This is how women and babies died in childbirth…”

The next two days were spent grateful of course, that we both lived and breathed, but nonetheless fending off hospital staff in an attempt to claw back at the peaceful and undisturbed postpartum experience we had been longing for. We left abruptly following an altercation with the worst kind of patriarchal, know-it-all physician, which in and of itself was a blessing. Home was infinitely better.

The weeks following were a whirlwind I barely remember.

Breast feeding hadn’t began well, with all my body had to recover from. My appetite was nonexistent. I was traumatized, sleep deprived, and depressed. Following what donor milk was available, we had resorted to supplementing with formula.

How is this happening…

I texted our general manager, Amber, asking if she could please pull a sample of the Postpartum Tincture that had consecrated during the Exalted Luna working, which had been held back from initial release with the intent of beta testing.

Why I hadn’t thought of it sooner, or prepared it so much in advance?… I have no idea — but I am, in a way, grateful to have gone through the same set of experiences countless other mothers go through, to truly and deeply empathize.

And to know for a fact how much of a difference that Tincture actually made.

How over the course of a few days, it entirely revived my appetite, did wonders for stabilizing my mind and emotional state, and encouraged the spice milk to flow.

How it invited the sweetest bonding, and most restorative sleep.

That isn’t to say it fixed everything instantly — it did take some time, but the hole I had started from began, little by little, dose by dose, to become filled in, lifting Lucian and I first to ground level, and finally, to where we are today:

Exclusively breastfeeding, thriving (when we’re not sleeping!), and *so, so* happy.

After taking the primary baby reigns so Austin could focus on May’s heinous workload, this (June 2024) has been my month to learn how to get back to my own side of these wondrous works, and learn how to juggle day-to-day life as a new mother.

It is in this spirit that I present, the Postpartum Release — a softball on my end given that it rides the wavy coat-tails of the series debuted most recently, yet a world away… before Lucian joined the party < 3

Now, if it would please the good reader, there are a few things I would like to mention about the birth that didn’t have a good place in the telling of its story:

The first is that we knew going in it would likely to be rough, based on both malefics transiting my Moon around that time. In addition, the women in my family have all ended up with emergency c-sections in recent generations.

I chose to attempt a home birth because I do believe that the birthing process is overly medicalized (and pathologized) in the modern world, and especially in the United States. The vast majority of healthy people with normal pregnancies are able to give birth perfectly fine in a home setting, and when they can’t (as in my case), they transfer. Me and my hooked Scorpio rising tailbone would not take it back!

The natural, initiatory, and gnostic aspects of birth are worth exploring and honoring, as timeless rights of passage. I am also — needless to say — grateful for modern, life-saving interventions, and have a tremendous appreciation that both exist, and pray these paths can co-exist more harmoniously in the future. It is not either / or, it is both in their rightful place.

Magically and astrologically speaking:

We had a consultation with Freedom Cole early on, who confirmed extra medical supervision would be needed, and even mentioned ancestral difficulties.

The frog omen is super interesting in light of the need to transfer from the lily pad of the house, to the lily pad of the hospital, and him flipping during that transit.

An early Tarot reading on our end indicated the decan of Lucian’s Sun… we just couldn’t believe he would go that long overdue!

An all-too-real reminder that, in the end, regardless of how well prepared or magically supported anyone is, life and destiny will always take their own course.

Something as important as a natal chart, which contains the seeds of fate for any given life, will not be altered beyond a certain point based upon human intervention. Lives begin exactly how and when they are supposed to. All we can do is our best with what we have at each fork in the road that presents itself!

Thank you to our closer and wider communities
for Lucian’s warm welcome into this world!

May this subset of Exalted Lunar offerings support,
nurture, and stabilize all of the families who partake <3
