We have a shiny new support portal

Open the Help Desk

It’ll be fleshed out over time, so you might not be able to find the answer you need just yet.

Please do get in the habit of trying though — to reduce the support burden on our Team, so we can spend less time answering support inquiries and more on providing expeditious resolution!

If you know for sure you already need assistance,
hop straight to opening a support ticket.

This is the best way to get inquiries directly to Kaitlin since, due to a large volume and the need to focus, she does not monitor DMs on any social media platform. It’ll be assigned to her and she will try to respond when there is bandwidth. Thank you for understanding!

    ‘One with the Aether’ Cloud King Candles

    , , ,
    Candles, ritually poured in our Empyreal Vantage election window over consecrated herbal mix. That too much candle dye was added to (womp womp womp), resulting in an unsafe burn for periods of longer than about 5 minutes at a time. Only the Slim Vigils work well enough to be released into the wild, but they must be treated with the utmost care. Although they are in glass, please put them on an extra fireproof surface and monitor very closely. These should only be used for short weekly devotions, but work extraordinarily well for that purpose. This is the first run of candles we’ve had this issue with, but when dealing with real magic, even the mistakes can be synchronous — these things seek to evaporate as quickly as possible, becoming as one with the Heavens. All Hail the Empyreal flame! Due to my error (deepest apologies), none of these are on offer. Though one will be included with each Altar Box Set as a gift, for those who feel comfortable taking one on.

    The Empress’ Oil

    , ,
    Classic herbal and lapidary correspondences for Venus and Luna were combined with ingredients renowned in Hoodoo and Conjure for their ability to sweeten, seduce, and open the way, fumigated and prayed over before being immersed in a 50/50 combination of organic cold pressed extra virgin olive oil and jojoba for the Empress election, mere hours following Luminous Crown. Pink and white water lily, raspberry leaf, damiana, orris root, watercress, red clover, rose hips, passionflower, pennyroyal, yarrow, vanilla bean, aloeswood, benzoin, Royal sandalwood, pink lotus stamens, eve root, deer’s tongue, jezebel root, lucky hand root, abre camino, diamond, emerald, and a touch of royal jelly — the nectar upon which the Queen bee herself feeds. Genuine 23kt red gold — an alloy of copper (Venus’ metal) and gold (the Sun’s metal) to emphasize Sol’s exaltation and rulership of the First, from the House Joy. Left to gestate for nearly a year before being decanted into glass vials on the day of Venus and offered here to you, blessed Human Spirit, for the promotion of your own interests, especially pertaining to matters of finance, career, beauty, embodiment, self-worth, self-love, and desire. Anoint to evoke a regal air, to improve posture, and promote a more commanding presence — capable, deserving, and worthy of the utmost respect. Following opening and application, one is first likely to note the oil's divine smell — as if seated near the dessert table at the Empress’ coronation, wafts of incense smoke and clean botanical waters drifting from Her lavish procession, amidst the cornucopia of rose and pink lotus bouquets upon Her distant altar. Immediately the nerves settle, and ambient anxieties dispel. Consciousness and spirit root themselves into the vessel, and we shift to a taller, more upright position. Collected, sober, and embodied — our outlooks become clearer. We are better able to sift through our desires, selecting and actualizing those which actually matter. From this empowered, competent state, we ask for what we want (and settle for nothing less). If the outside world will not give it, we become She who is capable of taking it. Draws adoration, admiration, and adulation, as well as money, gifts, and the favor of those around us — the powerful most of all. Outputs a natural gravity which inclines others to please us. Useful for those who have a tendency to martyr themselves and put others ahead of themselves and their own interests. May promote narcissism in those who are already so inclined. Magically speaking, the Empress' Oil can be used to charm and compel, to seduce, to cast and boost glamours, to increase income, to sweeten and empower reputations, to dominate, to manifest material resources, to draw power, and to promote sexual desire as in addition to social desirability. Anoint oneself, one’s partner, or toys to enhance sexual experiences. Note that sub/ dom dynamics may well be emphasized. Appropriate and well suited to wear in the workplace. This oil, unlike our other Venus series, is well suited to games of power and doesn’t resent toiling as much as most Venii, especially toward one’s own (worthy) goals. (Mars occupying its Degree of Exaltation + the House Joy certainly doesn't hurt!) Arrives in your choice of standard 1/2 oz glass vial for $84 (with an optional Dropper Cap Kit), a 10 ml precious metal rose gold roll-on for $108, or 10 ml w/ malachite rollerball for $68

    Rose + Pink Lotus Water

    , , ,
    Originally two hydrosols were planned for the Empress: a Rose Water in honor of our maiden Venus in Taurus series, in addition to a Pink and White Water Lily, chosen to represent the co-mingling of Venusian and Lunar influences imbued by this election in particular. Each was given its own copper alembic and distilled over the course of the afternoon, filled waters placed upon the altar of operation. An Empress tarot card was distilled within the Rose pot, and freshly created malachite talismans, alongside sundry herbs and woods renowned in Hoodoo and Conjure for seduction, sweetening, and the promotion of desirability, the Water Lily. Guidance was given following the Work to combine them, so only one Water results: the Rose + Pink Lotus, aquatic handmaiden of the Empress series. The result is an Imperial floral, charming and alluring, but with backbone; fresh and notably feminine, yet stoic and self-possessed. Anxieties dispel and posture improves. A sense of competence, self-respect, and Divine Order follow. Use as an aura and room spray to invoke a sense of calm and capability, while enhancing conscious awareness of the social landscape (as well as one's ability to dominate it), seduction, and the diplomatic feats necessary to achieve the objects of our desire. Feminine leadership, at its finest. Enhances desirability and the ability to take joy in harmonious sounds, striking visuals, exquisite tastes, and the most sensuous of sensations. Spray over Venus or manifestation altars. Mist sigils and vision boards for allied causes. Apply as a linen or body spray before engaging sexual activities, whether solo or partied. Boosts self-love, self-worth, and self-esteem. Apply before affirmations or acts toward such ends. Promotes self-care and an instinct for physical upkeep and beautification. Acts as a magnet for gifts, money, and material manifestation. Promotes glamour. Arrives in a 1/2 oz travel or sample size glass spray bottle with malachite keepsake and hand embossed rose gold glyph for $30, or full 2 oz for $66

    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.

    Empress Incense

    , ,
    Classic herbal and lapidary correspondences for Venus and Luna were combined with ingredients renowned in Hoodoo and Conjure for their ability to sweeten, seduce, and open the way, fumigated and prayed over before being ground in the day and hour of Venus following almost a years worth of incubation, and made self-igniting. Burn on any heat proof surface in the form of a mound or a sigil, preferably over ash. Pink and white water lily, raspberry leaf, damiana, orris root, watercress, red clover, rosehips, passionflower, pennyroyal, yarrow, vanilla bean, aloeswood, benzoin, pink lotus stamens, eve root, deer’s tongue, jezebel root, lucky hand root, abre camino, and malachite with Royal Sandalwood. Includes copious amounts of genuine 23kt red gold — an alloy of copper (Venus’ metal) and gold (the Sun’s metal) to emphasize Sol’s exaltation and rulership of the First, from the House Joy. Burn as an offering to Venus, or to please and compel powers which aid in manifestation, money drawing, self-promotion, beautification, and glamour. Activate sigils or fumigate vision boards for the same. Smoke bathe one’s own vessel to clear away limiting beliefs and feelings, all the while embodying the Empress, in her infinite charm, competence, grace, and gravitas. Works just as well before entering the boardroom as the boudoir. Arrives in a 1/2 oz glass vial with cork top and hand embossed rose gold glyph for $30, or a 2 oz bulk pot for $90

    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.

    Triple Lotus Salve

    , ,
    PLEASE NOTE: This offering continues being ghost-stocked by the website, meaning despite how many times we've set it to 0 it continues resurrecting itself. The Triple Lotus Salve is *long gone* (we miss it too!). If you do check out with it, we will need to refund you because no more exist. Apologies 💓 Pink, white, and blue lotus with passionflower, valerian, and chamomile in a base of organic, cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil, aged for almost a full year, strained and co-mingled with organic beeswax, essential oils, and absolutes on the day and hour of Venus. Poured into tins and topped with genuine rose gold. This is, at first blush, a more gentle and subtle salve than the others Sphere + Sundry have to offer, with less heavy handed physical effects. It can be used at the start of the day or before stressful engagements to help anchor a sense of inner serenity and self-sustained centeredness. Promotes patience, grace, and embodiment. If applied in more liminal circumstances — such as before bed or engaging trance states — this salve possesses noticeable psychoactive and astral journeying effects, lending itself to vivid or lucid dreaming and psychic exploration, especially of a sensual and emotionally connective nature. Rub well into the base of the skull, along the neck, shoulders, and ears for this purpose, in addition to the feet, base of the spine, and heart center for more intensity. Due to its more subtle physical impact but psycho-sensorial potency, the Triple Lotus salve almost qualifies as more of a Venusian witches' flying ointment than something engaged for something as simple as better sleep or muscle relaxation. Rubbed on oneself or aided by a partner, use before sexual engagement to bring ease, desire, and promote connection. Draws the waters of the body, as the Moon does tides (lymph flowing, saliva pooling... and likely others). The scent profile remains in alignment with the rest of the Empress’ offerings — Imperial Gourmand, but in this case, with a hint of valerian musk. Each tin contains a hidden keepsake. Offered in the 2 oz size for $63, or 4 oz bulk pot for $95 Note: 100% of the Empress salves were poured at one time, so there will be no restocking of large 4 oz bulk pots. Once these are gone, they are gone forever more. Do not apply to genitalia or sensitive areas. The feet, shoulders, &c. work beautifully!

    Empress Honey

    Consecrated Empress herbal blend, made of classic herbal and lapidary correspondences for Venus and Luna. Combined with ingredients renowned in Hoodoo and Conjure for their ability to sweeten, seduce, and open the way, fumigated and prayed over before being immersed in pure unfiltered local honey, mere hours following Luminous Crown. Pink and white water lily, raspberry leaf, damiana, orris root, watercress, red clover, rosehips, passionflower, pennyroyal, yarrow, vanilla bean, aloeswood, benzoin, Royal sandalwood, pink lotus stamens, eve root, deer’s tongue, jezebel root, lucky hand root, abre camino, malachite, and a drizzle of royal jelly — the nectar upon which the Queen bee herself feeds. Genuine 23kt rose gold. I recommend that this honey be used on oneself or one’s clients, rather than to “sweeten” adversaries or other problematic contacts, since its effects are more empowering and beneficent than such operations are typically intending. Such will magnetize money and gifts, empower material manifestation, promote glamour, self-love, self-worth, and embodiment. Grace, competence, and groundedness. Aids in cultivating a regal, deserving, and empowered presence. Offered in a 2 oz glass jar for $36

    Virgin beeswax dyed a sparkling peach, poured over consecrated Empress herbal mix during the height of the election.

The tops were melted and each candle crowned with a drizzle of royal jelly, piece of malachite, and genuine rose gold. Burn during Venus observations, prayers, or petitions. Keep on altars for material manifestation, beauty, and self-promotion. Light in the background of photos or livestreams. Use in more traditional works of candle magic for yourself or clients. Currently offered in three varieties, with a fourth short pillar style forthcoming in a dedicated drop or next year’s Holiday Grab Bag. For now: 2 oz glass containers for $84, 8 oz slim vigils for $168, or 8 oz medium sized glass pots, also for $168

    Queen of the Honeyed Heart

    , ,
    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 —

    This is an oil of peace and healing; of reconciliation without surrender, of forgiveness without capitulation. It is rooted in the healing power of the natural world, and was created to assist us in moving forward from pain and trauma in wholeness and strength. 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.

    The Empress’ Malachite Yoni Egg Talismans

    , ,
    Classic Picatrixian style talismans. Malachite eggs, prayed over, fumigated, and subtly etched with Venusian symbols, imagery, and glyph during the height of the Empress Election. These can serve as altar pieces or actual Yoni Eggs, if the user decides they are suitable. More information in the toggle below. IMPORTANT: Absolutely do NOT use internally if you are pregnant, or wish to become pregnant. Only 1 Malachite Empress Egg is being offered to the public, $777 [spb_blank_spacer height="30px" width="1/1" el_position="first last"] [spb_toggle title="On the potential toxicity of malachite due to copper" open="false" width="1/1" el_position="first"] Some online sources claim malachite to be toxic because of its copper content, but that primarily impacts those involved with its mining and polishing (who should always be wearing protective gear on the job). Finished malachite poses almost zero risk to the user/ wearer, save for the case of prolonged exposure to acidic environments where trace amounts of copper can be leeched, which has resulted in fear mongering around even the consumption of Moscow Mules because of lime juice in the beverage. I have yet to know a single person who has been sickened or died of Moscow Mule poisoning, or been negatively impacted by the copper leaf that features in many Venus oils and materia. Copper is considered by science not to be meaningfully absorbed through the skin (if at all), and it is an essential trace metal found in lots of foods and things we regularly consume. Malachite is featured in some online lists of Yoni Eggs to avoid due to the same issue — the presence of copper combined with the naturally acidic environment of the vagina. Copper IUDs have been used as a common contraceptive since 1967, because copper naturally inhibits how sperm cells move so they cannot reach the egg and result in pregnancy. This makes even more sense of copper as the metal of Venus, given that our Fair lady desires sex for fun, rather than procreation (that would be Luna’s purview). It is up to each individual if they feel comfortable using the Malachite Yoni Egg Talismans internally or instead keeping them as altar pieces, and I encourage everyone to perform their own research, consult a physician, and do whatever they decide is safe with their own bodies, always. Given the short period of time such an egg is likely to be inserted (especially compared to up to 12 years of 24/7 wear with a copper IUD), these concerns seem overblown to me, personally. If you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, are sensitive to heavy metals, or have heavy metal poisoning, then do not use malachite internally. This same disclaimer/ contraindication is repeated on the Yoni Egg page. (This was only so in-depth because the issue was brought up in advance from a shared teaser, and we know how The Internet can be.) This non-controversy considered, no malachite was included in the standard 1/2 oz vial of Empress Oils, for those who still wish to avoid it. Malachite is the gem for Empress rollers. All of the malachite used in the Empress series is natural and undyed. [/spb_toggle]

    Pennyroyal, cranesbill root, raspberry leaf, alfalfa leaf, orris root, watercress, damiana, fenugreek, red clover, marshmallow root, pink lotus stamens, rose hips, nymphaea caerulea (pink water lily), nelumbo nucifera (white water lily), passionflower, yarrow, slippery elm bark, Tahitian vanilla bean, and Royal Jelly (the nectar upon which the Queen Bee feeds), fumigated during the Empress operation and steeped in top shelf, gluten free potato vodka for nearly a full year. Shaken during Venus’ days and hours when she was in good transiting condition, and at long last strained through medium mesh as a nod to Taurus’ earthy nature. Bottled in glass with genuine red gold and sealed with a glass dropper cap. Use to anoint that which you do not want getting oily. Offered in a 1/2 oz glass dropper bottle for $35, or a 1 oz for $70 IMPORTANT: Due to the presence of Pennyroyal, do not use if you are pregnant. 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.

    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.

    Virgin beeswax, dyed black and poured over consecrated Hermanubis II herbal mix at the height of the Mercury Cazimi election of 11:11:2019. 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.

Can be burned as an offering to Hermanubis in exchange for guiding deceased loved ones to the other side, and ferry them to where they need to go. Light during Hermanubis operations to make invocations and evocations easier. Very few candles were created for this series. Only 10 slim vigils, 6 of which are reserved for Box Sets.

    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

    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.

    [sf_iconbox image="fas fa-magic" character="" color="accent" type="boxed-four" animation="" animation_delay="200"] Sold out — something similar is available as part of Asclepius I.I ⚕[/sf_iconbox] Water freshly harvested from the headwaters of Mt. Shasta, combined on the Asclepius III altar with grain alcohol + colloidal gold, making for a final solution with 80% alcohol content. Mixed with Solar essential oils on the Sun's day and hour as Apollo transited his sign of his rulership, and decanted into glass woozy bottles with orifice reducers for easy application. Turkish colognes are often sprinkled upon the hands before entering one's household or business establishment, providing some natural sanitation and also a delightful scent. This can be used in such a way, or as a type of Asclepius Florida Water for energetic cleansing, drawing goodness and illumination — anytime or before ritual. Makes it difficult for nasties to glom on or penetrate the auric body. Shake well to integrate the Sol-looking drops of golden essential oil before use. Energy Clearing Protocol For energetic cleansing, sprinkle about a half teaspoon onto the palms of the hands and gently but thoroughly rub together for 10 or so seconds, coating both sides. The hands can float 2 inches from the body or be lightly touching it. Stand and run your palms from the crown of your head down the back of the head, then start from the top again, going down the front of your face and body, all the way down to the tops of your feet. If you feel any areas "sticking", continue stroking them until energies disperse, and then proceed with downward sweeping. Continue skimming from the head downward, running your cologned hands across every surface area, including under the arms, groin, and rear, concluding with the bottoms of the feet by lifting them. You can "flick" the energy off if it feels right, or it will dissipate naturally, however you prefer. Take 10-30 seconds to close your eyes and integrate the cleansing, feeling the shift, and thank Asclepius and/ or Apollo for their protection, sealing the auric body from negativity. Asclepius' Kolonía can also be used before performing reiki, energy work, or any other healing activity, on clients or loved ones. It can be done on the self, objects, or 3rd parties. Other Applications This can also be added to baths, floor washes, essential oil diffusers, or dishes of water kept at the bedside for protection. Extraordinarily versatile, effective, and p o t e n t . A little goes a long way. This listing will go quickly. Offered in a 1.7 oz glass woozy bottle for $33, or (very few) bulk 5 oz for $97

    Luminous Sovereign Talismans

    , , ,
    Resident Sphere + Sundry goldsmith Tony Mack offers to the Luminous Crown an extremely limited set of custom talismans, capturing this exceptionally rare and eminent hybrid election  —

    Modeled in hard carver’s wax and cast on March 27th, 2020 at 6:57 am EST in Williamsport Pennsylvania. The Sun rising on the ascendant, exalted in Aries during the planetary hour of the sun [with an exalted Moon, Mars, and Venus/Saturn in their domiciles]. Casting was accompanied by suffumigations and petition created specifically for this hybrid election.

    The head of Ptah, demiurge of Memphis who spoke into creation the Gods and forms conceived within his mind (heart), fleshed out in high relief and cast in molten electrum; a 80/20 alloy of silver and gold. With royal beard, and crowned with two plumes surrounding a solar disk (cast in gold). This crown was incorporated into depictions of Ptah as he absorbed aspects Tatenen, embodying the chthonic fire that raises and shapes the earth. Set into the forehead is a .6 carat octagonal-cut ruby mounted into a raised prong setting.

    Only 10 were cast, 7 of which are offered to the public. Includes a vial of Luminous Crown Oil for charging, feeding, and attuning to your talisman. Talismans are included in each of the 3 large Box Sets. Arrives with a sterling silver chain in a black leatherette pendant box, marked by a custom wax seal for easy identification. $2,600

    Luminous Crown Candles

    , , , ,
    Virgin white beeswax poured over consecrated Luminous Crown herb and gem mix, including saltwater pearl, ruby, diamond, and saffron, super-quickly powdered and sprinkled into every mold. Each candle includes dual wicks which burn united as a single flame, representing each of the lights in their signs of exaltation, fueling united purpose. Topped or gilded with electrum, an alloy of gold and silver, the metals of Sol and Luna respectively, showcasing the same. This is the first series offering pillar candles in addition to glass jars, perfect for carving, dressing, and works of candle magic. I suggest burning them in glass containers near their size regardless, so if any wax drips down the side (see gallery), it can be used to feed the flame as it burns, rather than go to waste. Each candle is marked on the bottom with a hand stamped and embossed Luminous Crown seal. The pillars stand within 1/4" of their ideal height of 3" and 6". Unscented, burn on a firesafe surface, never leave unattended. Only half of what was poured is being offered to the public, the Luminous Crown being an exceedingly rare, highly eminent election. The slim vigil style jars seen in the photos have been paired with large Box Sets. Short pillars and 2 oz jar candles for $90, or tall pillars for $168.

    Mars in Scorpio Oil: Temperance Edition

    , , ,
    A blend of organic herbs, resins, and gems of martial nature and correspondence, including bloodstone, red jasper, red ginseng, scorpion pepper, stinging nettle, basil, pink and black peppercorn, ritually suffumigated with Mars' Degree of Exaltation incense during the pre-dawn hour of Mars on New Year’s day 2020. This as Mars rose in Scorpio (electional chart within the image gallery), in addition to other herbs and sundries typically employed in Hoodoo and Conjure for promoting fortitude, strength, potency, and victory, such as High John the Conquerer Root. 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. While it is very powerful, it is also cooler in tone and manifestation than Mars often is, oriented to be as productive as possible. It promotes focus, grit, inner steel, and teaches Martial wisdom through the perspective of its fixed water sign. Expect gains in self-sufficiency, a boost to your strategic, grounded and tactical thinking, and to better remain calm and centered, committed to The Mission at hand. For more on its expression, applications, and side effects, see the series writeup. Apply to the self before going to work or engaging in physical activities, to override lazy and whiney impulses. Use before entering into situations where your ability to keep calm in the face of offensive or defensive maneuvers will win the day. Anoint weapons and Martial implements to empower them. Should you have need for a more weaponized form of Mars in Scorpio, consider its more lethally endowed Other, Oil of Scorpion. Arrives in your choice of standard 1/2 oz glass vial for $65 (with an optional Dropper Cap Kit), or 10 ml roll-on w/ red jasper rollerball for $58 (no more remaining).

    Water of Mars in Scorpio

    , , ,
    In 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.

    Oil of Scorpion: Emperor Edition

    , ,
    Scorpion 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.

    Mars in Scorpio Attuning Tincture

    , ,
    Horny 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, or 1 oz for $55 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 changes, especially in favor of increasing masculinizing hormones which impact blood flow, in alignment with Mars as karaka for masculine presentation and bleeding. It could very well impact the efficacy of birth control and promote abnormal spotting or increased menstruation. Mars materia + talismans should always be avoided by anyone who is, could be, or is trying to get pregnant. 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.

    Honorary Martial Mention: Forgemaster’s Iron Palm Dit Da Jow

    , , ,
    This 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 they be of a metaphoric or physical nature. For a deeper dive into the workings of this supremely fine, well aged formula, Austin writes —

    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 quintessential 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. Arrives in a glass bottle with spray top for easy application, in either a travel/ sample size of 1/2 oz for $25, or full 2 oz for $55 Note: Should not be used in areas with mucous membranes, skin rashes, open cuts, or sores. Apply a small amount, wait an hour, if no allergic reaction occurs, continue with use. External application only.

    Blood of the Gorgon

    , , ,
    Consecrated 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. Such may require a good amount of energetic purification afterward, for which Asclepius, Sol, and Regulus are all good antidotes, especially their incense, water, and candle light. This is one of the most potent and active items from the Mother Algol series. Please use with great care. Each glass bottle contains silver leaf and a hand drawn Algol label, offered in a small 1/2 oz size for $30 or 2 oz for $63 Please note that due to the particularly malefic nature of Algol, divination is being done on all orders placed for this series.

    Gorgon Mirror Talismans

    , , ,
    The 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. Etched at the beginning of the Full Moon conjunct Algol 2019 in the hour of Saturn and day of Mars, quickly cleaned, suffumigated, and rubbed with Algol oil during the election. 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. 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.  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 😊

    Mother Algol Oil Lamps

    , , , ,
    Unmarked standard size glass mason jars were suffumigated and filled with consecrated Algol herbal base, including black hellebore, mummified rattlesnake powder, snake's skin, diamond, and more. The clear paraffin oil has turned red since incubation due to chemical reactions between it and its contents. No dye was added. The main offering image shows it frozen from having been outside during its two month long incubation period, it has since returned to its liquid state. Oil lamps are frequently employed in the Hoodoo tradition and possess the virtue of being infinitely reusable, building an even greater charge with use over time and a personal relationship with their keeper. The exterior is intentionally left unmarked so it can be decorated in accord with the user's desired purpose (optional, of course!). Direct its light to feed Algol talismans or implements of an appropriately protective, reversing, or malefic nature, as well as pictures or icons of those you wish to impact. Includes the charged Mother Algol talismanic lamp base, burner, ream of wick, and chimney for $360

    Opening the Eye of Al-Ghul Ritual Set

    , , ,
    For the first time, Sphere + Sundry welcomes renowned occult author Robert Fitzgerald, possessing decades of experience at the crossroads of traditional witchcraft and stellar magic, who received the transmission “Opening the Eye of Al-Ghul” along with two original sigils during the night of the election. Thirteen such sets were drawn by his hand the following conjunction between Luna and Algol, and are offered as ritual sets along with the 2 oz candle and Algol incense necessary to execute the Rite. In his own words, short and sweet —

    The purpose of the Rite of Opening the Eye of Al-Ghul is to generate a link with the Star as a field of magical protection against the baleful effects of stellar maleficia.

    An initiation into the mysteries of Algol, for those looking for the deepest engagement Mother Algol offers with this tremendously potent primordial current. Eleven of these are being offered to the public, individually numbered, allocated as fate would have it. $336 By purchasing this, the buyer-practitioner enters into a pact not to share the words or sigils of this Rite with any other, by pain of Algol's enduring and violated gaze. Given not only the potency of the Rite, but these consequential terms, divinations are taken seriously for this item. If the results are insufficient, the order will be fully refunded. Please perform your own divinations before deciding to partake of it.

    Eye of Mother Algol Talismans

    , , ,
    A beloved favorite returns. Black clay filled molded into a three dimensional vesica piscis during the Full Moon in Taurus conjunct Algol, 2019. Red clay was then inlaid to create an iris, and a genuine .07 ct silvermist diamond installed as pupil. Engraved with Algol's seal and cured with Helleborus in boiling water in the light of Luna as she conjoined the fixed star. These Algol Eyes feature a hole through the center, meaning they can serve as standalone talismans or as beads. Each Eye includes one of the toothpicks used to create and maintain these holes, which carry quite a charge on their own and can be applied in any manner usually reserved for nails, thorns, or pins. Algol talismans can be used to provide powerful protection against the evil eye or to defend oneself against various malefactors, both human and discarnate. They can also be used offensively to dominate, bind, and weaken a given target, for Athena's shield served dual purpose. Algol is the most notoriously malefic fixed star and should be treated with the utmost respect. These talismans, and all other artifacts from this series, should be covered when not in use. Thirteen Algol eye talismans were crafted during this election. Six are reserved for box sets and 5 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. $279

    Jup-Juice

    , , ,
    A beloved favorite, given new life just in time for the holidays! Consecrated mulling spices and citrine distilled with a combination of water collected during a thunder storm (8/9/19) and freshly drawn from the underbelly of the earth (well) via two copper alembics, initiated at the start of Jupiter’s hour during the ritual operation and produced until the following hour of Jupiter. This hydrosol was mixed with a small amount of grain alcohol to preserve and left to bask upon the Jupiter altar, stored with the rest of the materia since to imbue its positive characteristics and “program” its charge. Synchronistically, the day the offering photos were staged (+ the day of launching this series), the air was heavy with cloudy white mist (see photo gallery), mirroring the clouds within the freshly distilled liquid and a nod to Jupiter’s rulership over “generous bodily fluids”, including those of... a prolific nature. Shout-out to Zeus’ many offspring. The result is an uplifting, motivating, and utterly delicious spray that can be conveniently applied any time one finds themselves in need of a jolt of good fortune, improved attitude, optimistic stimulation, and good cheer. Note that this is the only offering from the Jupiter in Sagittarius series containing lightning charged components, and is therefore closest to the Lightning Rod series in effect and temperament. Use to set the tone of a space before holiday or social gatherings, as well as ritual. Spray as an offering over wealth altars, or those in devotion to Jupiterian spirits. Stimulating, warming, and motivating. Instills a sense of bright, yet grounded hopefulness, cuts melancholy and helps emotionally reframe anxiety into an exciting sense of potential and possibility. Excellent for application before engaging in brain storming sessions and yang activities for self-improvement and goal achievement, ranging from going to professional development conferences, engaging active self-help practices and materials, running marathons, working out, or networking for opportunities. Or, simply use to help get yourself off the couch and out of an emotional rut. We start from where we're at 💛 Arrives in a glass spray bottle with hand drawn Jupiter in Sagittarius glyph and keepsake citrine, available in a 1/2 oz travel or sample size for $28 or full 2 oz for $64 Golden and clear drops of essential oil resulting from the distillation are still present, in some bottles more than others. These are completely natural, not any indication something is amiss.

The clear liquid paraffin oil has turned milky since incubation, mirroring the clouds within the freshly distilled Jup-Juice hydrosol and a nod to Jupiter’s rulership over “generous bodily fluids”, including those of... a prolific nature. Shout-out to Zeus’ many offspring.

Burn during Jupiter’s day and hour for remediation and ritual observation, to ingratiate the greater benefic to your purpose and call his aid. Well kept on wealth altars and work desks. Given Jupiter is out of talismanic commission for the next 1-2 years, this is the largest run of oil lamps Sphere + Sundry has so far produced. Sixteen were created, twelve of which are being offered to the public. Includes the charged Jupiter in Sagittarius talismanic lamp base, burner, wick, and chimney ready to use for $360.

    Talismanic Mulling Spices

    , ,
    Jupiter is sometimes referred to as the Santa Claus of the zodiac, provider of bounty and good cheer. It’s fitting then that many of the spices the Western world uses throughout the holiday season fall under the Greater Benefic’s purview, providing warmth, fortifying the immune system, and bringing a generous and satisfying payload of spice to the table. A blend of organic winter warmers ruled by Jupiter: cinnamon bark, clove, and allspice, in addition orange peel — a nod to Regulus’ presence in the Jupiter in Sagittarius series election. Ritually combined with edible 24k gold leaf and suffumigated with Jupiter’s bounty incense, blessed by Jupiter after issuing the full call from The Picatrix.  Mulling spices are commonly used to make fragrant and delicious warm ciders and wine, but can also be made into tea. Cook up fragrant beverage offerings of Jupiterian virtue for Gods and human spirits alike, elevating the mood and crafting an atmosphere of good cheer. Can also be freshly ground and added to pies, gingerbreads, cakes, cookies. Offered for the 2020 Holiday season in three sizes — 1.5 oz mini tin for $20, 2 oz air tight glass bale jar for $26, or 8 oz bulk tin for $78.

    Sphere + Sundry's favored wife of a collaborator, Elizabeth Barrial of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Twilight Alchemy Lab, ritually crafted one of three limited edition perfume oils during the Aldebaran series election, adjusted per her location. Of it, she shares —

    Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio; contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur: tuque, Princeps militiae caelestis, Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo, divina virtute, in infernum detrude. Amen

    This is an oil of battle and protection.

    The Sword of St. Michael is particularly effective in protecting the vulnerable, the marginalized, and the meek, and it grants strength, courage, and determination to those whose spirits are flagging. It can be utilized for both offense and defense, and is effective not only as a personal guardian, but also in workings that protect communities that are imperiled from those in power who wish to exploit, harm, or victimize them.

    It is an oil of justice and the fortitude of faith, and it will cut a swath through your enemies.

    The Sword of St. Michael has been dedicated to and consecrated under the auspices of Archangel Michael, and was further empowered during a novena leading up to Michaelmas.

    Orange blossom absolute (Citrus aurantium var. amara), steam-distilled Madagascar clove bud essential oil and organic clove bud (Eugenia caryophyllata), frankincense serrata CO2 extract (Boswellia serrata), angelica, frankincense essential oil (Boswellia carteri), hops essential oil (Humulus lupulus), western red cedar essential oil and berries (Thuja plicata), Atlas cedar essential oil (Cedrus atlantica), Tunisian neroli (Citrus aurantium var amara), wild-crafted Moroccan bay laurel essential oil and bay leaves from the TAL garden (Laurus nobilis), myrrh essential oil and tears (Commiphora myrrha), organic blood orange essential oil (C. aurantium var dulce), dragon’s blood resin (Daemonorops draco), single-origin organic olive oil, sunflower oil, red vegetal musk, tiger’s eye chips, and carnelian chips.

    Archangel Michael Anointing Perfume

    , , ,
    Sphere + Sundry's favored wife of a collaborator, Elizabeth Barrial of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Twilight Alchemy Lab, ritually crafted one of three limited edition perfume oils during the Aldebaran series election, adjusted per her locatioin. Of it, she shares —

    Princeps gloriosissime caelestis militiae, sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio et colluctatione, quae nobis adversus principes et potestates, adversus mundi rectores tenebrarum harum, contra spiritualia nequitiae, in caelestibus.

    Veni in auxilium hominum, quos Deus creavit inexterminabiles, et ad imaginem similitudinis suae fecit, et a tyrannide diaboli emit pretio magno.

    Proeliare hodie cum beatorum Angelorum exercitu proelia Domini, sicut pugnasti contra ducem superbiae Luciferum, et angelos eius apostaticos: et non valuerunt, neque locus inventus est eorum amplius in coelo. Sed proiectus est draco ille magnus, serpens antiquus, qui vocatur diabolus et satanas, qui seducit universum orbem; et proiectus est in terram, et angeli eius cum illo missi sunt.

    En antiquus inimicus et homicida vehementer erectus est. Transfiguratus in angelum lucis, cum tota malignorum spirituum caterva late circuit et invadit terram, ut in ea deleat nomen Dei et Christi eius, animasque ad aeternae gloriae coronam destinatas furetur, mactet ac perdat in sempiternum interitum.

    Virus nequitiae suae, tamquam flumen immundissimum, draco maleficus transfundit in homines depravatos mente et corruptos corde; spiritum mendacii, impietatis et blasphemiae; halitumque mortiferum luxuriae, vitiorum omnium et iniquitatum.

    Ecclesiam, Agni immaculati sponsam, faverrimi hostes repleverunt amaritudinibus, inebriarunt absinthio; ad omnia desiderabilia eius impias miserunt manus.

    Ubi sedes beatissimi Petri et Cathedra veritatis ad lucem gentium constituta est, ibi thronum posuerunt abominationis et impietatis suae; ut percusso Pastore, et gregem disperdere valeant.

    Adesto itaque, Dux invictissime, populo Dei contra irrumpentes spirituales nequitias, et fac victoriam.

    Te custodem et patronum sancta veneratur Ecclesia; te gloriatur defensore adversus terrestrium et infernorum nefarias potestates; tibi tradidit Dominus animas redemptorum in superna felicitate locandas.

    Deprecare Deum pacis, ut conterat satanam sub pedibus nostris, ne ultra valeat captivos tenere homines, et Ecclesiae nocere.

    Offer nostras preces in conspectu Altissimi, ut cito anticipent nos misericordiae Domini, et apprehendas draconem, serpentem antiquum, qui est diabolus et satanas, ac ligatum mittas in abyssum, ut non seducat amplius gentes.

    This is an all-purpose anointing oil that has been dedicated to and consecrated under the auspices of Archangel Michael, and was further empowered during a novena leading up to Michaelmas. It is highly purifying, sanctifying, and protective, and is particularly useful in cleansing a person, object, or space of baneful, malevolent influences. Its protective power is hot and fiery - triumphant, potent, and fearsome.

    Aldebaran Candles

    , , ,
    Red soy wax poured over consecrated organic Aldebaran herbal base including milk thistle, bull born, and more, in the prime moments of a fine Aldebaran election heavily supported by Jupiter in Sagittarius. Each candle contains a piece of rare coinage that can be kept upon a wealth altar or in one’s wallet after burning. Topped with ruby and genuine gold and copper leaf. Burn on altars or during workings related to Aldebaranian principles. Never leave candles unattended. Due to running out of small candle jars, this is a very limited run. Only twelve 2 oz jars were poured for $90, and seven hyper-large 24 oz for $272. Some of these are also reserved for box sets.

    Aldebaran x BPAL Perfume trio [Archangel Michael Duo]

    , , ,
    All  ̶t̶h̶r̶e̶e̶  perfume oils formulated for the Aldebaran Series by Elizabeth Barrial of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Twilight Alchemy Lab. 11/30/19 update: The Red Eye of the Bull is completely spoken for. This duo now contains both of the Archangel Michael oils... In Western cosmology, Aldebaran is seen as the watcher of the East, the horizon-gate through which the Sun rises each morning, ushering the day itself into being. The star is commonly associated with the Archangel Michael, although it bears mention that other sources point to another of the four royal stars, Regulus. Considering this election hosted the Moon on Aldebaran as Sol conjoined the Lion’s Heart simultaneously, this seemed like a fortuitous opportunity to create oils in devotion to the dragon-slaying Saint. $88

    Water of Deneb Algedi

    , , ,
    [sf_iconbox image="fas fa-magic" character="" color="accent" type="boxed-four" animation="" animation_delay="200"] Sold out... but a new batch is available as part of Deneb Algedi II 😘 [/sf_iconbox] Water freshly collected from the headwaters of Mt. Shasta, where and when the blue chalcedony used throughout the series and on the working altar was obtained and cleansed. Austin and I also had the friendliest, fairest, and most productive exchange with a police officer we've ever had that day, testifying to Deneb Algedi's ability to bring the favor of the law (but also, bring the law). Traditional associations for Deneb Algedi are marjoram, mugwort, and the aforementioned blue chalcedony. All were combined, along with the tail hair from a happy (and very much still alive!) goat-friend, as this fixed star represents the tail of the sea-goat in the constellation of Capricorn. Other herbs for protection, fortification, and wealth generation were also present, and distilled via copper alembic the night of the Full Moon conjunct the asterism, 2019. Spray to reinforce boundaries, physical and metaphorical, and provide protection. Facilitates a grounded and somewhat stoic sense of uprightness and right mindedness. Helpful for thinking through tactics, logistics, and topics of import. Aids in establishing a sense of security and containment. Averts the evil eye. Ever so slightly intimidating. Bottled and marked with a hand drawn Deneb Algedi glyph in a 1/2 oz glass spray bottle for $27, or a 2 oz for $63

Of it, she shares —

    May the Name send its hidden radiance          to open the gates of deliverance to His servants—and shine in their hearts, which now are shut in silent darkness.

    May the great King be moved to act in perfection and righteousness - to open the gates of wisdom for us and waken the love of old, the love of ancient days.

    By the power of the hidden Name I-am-that-I-am, and by the dew of Desire and Blessing, the dead will live again...

    I-am is the power of your Name in concealment, and one who knows its mystery dwells in eternity’s instant.

    Over the world, it pours forth abundance and favor, and on it all worlds hang, like grapes in a cluster.

    Send the dew of blessing, the dew of grace; renew my dispensation, and grant me length of days.

    Bring light to my eyes with your teaching, and let not the husks          that surround your hosts obstruct me. May Heaven and Adam’s children judge me with mercy.

    Sustain me with their strength and fortune - but do not leave me in need of the gifts of men. - Prayers for the Protection and Opening of the Heart by Ya’akov Hakohen, translated by Peter Cole

    This oil possesses a pulsing radiance – the golden glow of a faraway star. It is an oil of protection and cleansing, of divine succor and true safety. This oil fortifies your defenses, repelling not just open acts of aggression or subterfuge, but also the bitter darts of cruelty, envy, and malice. It is a wall of resplendent force, assisting in protecting you from all manner of attack and violation. It is a defense against malocchio, hexes, curses, and psychic violence, and a method through which you can contain and retain positivity.

    This oil is a protection that stems from your own personal and intimate connection with the divine. This is the flame that banishes the shadows. Enflame the oil with prayer.

    Deneb Algedi Oil Lamps

    , , , ,
    Inspired by a workshop given by Professor Charles Porterfield on conjure lamps in the hoodoo tradition at the Viridis Genii Symposium 2019, glass vessels were suffumigated and filled with consecrated Deneb Algedi herbal mix before being filled with odorless and clean burning paraffin lamp oil during the height of the election. Contents include the traditional correspondences for Deneb Algedi — marjoram, mugwort, and blue chalcedony, in addition to 24k gold, frankincense, and other fortifying herbs for protection, the safekeeping of borders, repelling the evil eye, wealth generation, and calling the favor of the powerful. As taught by the conjureman, the light (and shadow) from lamps (and candles, no doubt) can be guided with the use of mirrors to shine in certain directions, upon photographs or specific items for additional magical utility. It was this point in particular that inspired the idea that such light could also be used to feed, magnify, and activate astrological talismans, and experiments since have successfully confirmed that suspicion! A benefit oil lamps in particular possess over candles is that they can be eternally refilled, vastly increasing the span of their application and usefulness. Burn as you would a candle to promote the influence of Deneb Algedi within your sphere. Keep on altars for protection, wealth, success, and reputation.
