Thema Mundi began shipping for the first time on September 28th, 2023. The day afterward, unbeknownst to us, Sphere entertainment venue opened in Las Vegas — a massive sync / global confirmation an eagle-eyed Client reported to the the Community.

The shifts from Thema Mundi are at once, massively tectonic and nigh imperceptible. Each day we walk upon this glorious Earth and take it for granted, not appreciating all the Stars that have metaphorically (and literally) aligned to host our incarnate experience.

Reality is but a Dreamscape, after all…

That same opportunity for lack of awareness is there on every front, at every turn. Someone can be given a plot of the richest, most generative soil on the Planet, and if they don’t know how to plant anything in it — all it is, is dirt.

As the first testimonials duly declare, many people have had, and are having, profound and impactful experiences with Thema Mundi. As a few in the Community have also reported, others are having a harder time accessing its arcana.

Something along these lines was touched on in my conversation with Denis before its debut, when asked about Opus — “sometimes it’s as if you took psychedelics, and other times it does nothing at all — it is truly wild…

But I don’t believe when it “does nothing” that nothing is happening.

I believe changes are occurring beyond our levels of current perception, which are in fact vital to setting the stage for later development.

How long now has the Earth been forming?
How long was it, before consciousness as we know, came to witness?

Nothing Sphere + Sundry has put out before, is as initiatic or slow burn as Thema Mundi. This is mirrored by the many years it took to create (and the period of time before it becomes possible to create again!), the number of rituals involved, the duration of its pre-order windows, and how initial fulfillment spanned a literal 3-GD-weeks once it even began shipping. This, from what is undoubtedly the most generative and fastest fulfilling shop of lil’ Talismanic horrors Sundries on the planet.

The fact that writing an essay about it even nowmore than 259-days since its initial debutstill feels impossible. That its energies are too big, gravitous, wondrous, and amorphous to even attempt definition. How it is exceedingly universal and at once, too personal to explain.

I’ve been working toward just that since the second pre-order window opened, and, nothing final has come to fruition on the write-up front. But since this window closes on the 13th of February is now closed (Join the Newsletter + offering Waitlist(s) to be notified next it opens!), consider this another helpful Waymark in our massive experiment of magical and material co-(r)evolution.

What I can say that is meaningful is — for those who already have Thema Mundi, and for those who are about to dive in — give it a job to do.

Work (clap!) that (clap!) SOIL!

Get your hands dirty, and incorporate its myriad potentials and fecundity into your spiritual and physiological microbiome.

PLANT something, even if that something, is your entire Self.

Be patient!

Partake of water and sunlight. Regularly, as seedlings must be tended.

Get clear on what you do — and/or do not! — want.

Do all of the things you know you should *already* be doing — that lead you toward more desirable outcomes, and less of whatever else.

Let time do its job, under conditions you are actively controlling, where and when you are able.

The sprouts and shoots that are meant will come, by their Creator’s own hand. Which are (drumroll…)  YOURS!

Some will become as Yggdrasil.

And remember that above all, at its core — Thema Mundi is thee seed energy for all Creation and Becoming.

Focus on what you want to create and become — strive for that on all practical fronts, and supplement with Thema Mundi along your divine and unfolding Way. Physically and magically.

It’s really is that hard,
and that simple.

Other practical notes:

— Thema Mundi really does seem best suited and understood by seasoned magical practitioners. Know that if you don’t have a lot of deep experience on that front, and haven’t developed a taste / sense for how longer-term, broad scale magics can unfold in personally life-altering ways, its impacts might feel — or even belost upon you. For months, for years, or forever. That is no one’s fault. It is simply true.
And in good faith, can be worked around!

— If you follow the primary guideline “give it a job to do!”, its results are still very likely to fully manifest. But not understanding the process, “feeling them” in the same way less complicated series are often easily felt, or witnessing their coming to fruition [on your own timeline] is to be expected.

— This can be achieved magically, through the launching and activation of sigils, candle magic, petitions, honey pots, fumigation of vision boards, and whatever other forms you practice. Integrate Thema Mundi materia as you would any other. Incorporate it into the rituals you are already doing.

—— Note: divining on results for whatever the current operational blueprint is beforehand is always best practice. Your Oracle may suggest tweaks or lead you in directions which will yield better results than the original conception involved. If this is not part of your current practice, make it so! And keep a magical record!

— Functionally, or what the Classical Feng Shui practitioner in me refers to as “Form School”, giving it a job means rising to the occasion of your responsibilities and striving for the life you want, to become more of the person you want to be.

—— It means, on the days you apply Thema Mundi to your vessel, you strive to become worthy of the empowerments you seek. Embody higher principles and partake of whole-making activities. Speak with truer intent; and practice more mindfulness.

Take a walk to contemplate and omen watch. Journal. Eat healthier. Break with addictive, self-sabotaging behaviors, even if just for the day. Read a book. Spend more quality time with loved ones, including your divine Self.

——— Thema Mundi should be used standalone sometimes, though it is is also fine to layer it with the influences that are most meaningful and helpful to you, personally, to potentiate them (a la Luna in Cancer!).

Magic needs time and space to breathe, apart and undisturbed by our ongoing human attachments and interventions. Worrying about any operation too much invokes the “watched pot never boils” experience, and violates magical results’ ability to form as Sovereign entities in-and-of themselves. Which are necessary for the assumption of material form. Results must be born.

— Speaking as someone who is almost 8-months pregnant, the only key thing I/ our duad did, was plant the initial seed… at the right time… and under the right conditions. The rest has all been responsible stewardship, adaptation, and waiting. Material and magical processes mirror one another almost exactly. Following a successful trigger pull, the process is MOSTLY waiting, holding faith, and controlling conditions, more than anything else. By magnitudes of 100.

More resources/ exercises/ practices are being developed to help orient people’s Thema Mundi experience(s), which will be shared in the Client Community as and when they are finalized.

Alone, together…

The sacramental cookies that shipped with the first round will be appearing again, thanks to the willingness and good grace of the incredible Team who baked and decorated over 1,000 of them(!) as I bottled and packed the first round.

Cookies weren’t the original plan — I had something else lined up, but the provider backed out one week before anticipated delivery on religious (anti-astrology and anti-magic) grounds. How perfect though, it ended up being!

That the treats which would arrive with each order were created in the same kitchen that provided so many of the sacramental meals of Thema Mundi’s 7-day ritual cloister, imbued with the results of its labors.

And funnier still, that by night as all this was happening, Austin and I were working our way through Collection 10 of The Great British Baking Show, which kept featuring undeniable syncs. The likes of which we had never seen in years of watching! 1H Cancer indeed!

The second round of pre-orders has now closed. Shipments from round 2 have all shipped!

To be notified of when R3 opens, come Summer or Fall 2024, you are welcome to sign up for individual Waitlist(s) on offering pages and/ or the Mailing List

The mysteries and results of Thema Mundi continue unfurling — however imperceptibly in any given moment. Before our very eyes, and in real-time… past, present, and future. It has big things in store, that will be delivered to our Clients and Community through these works regardless of whether or not any given individual partakes. But we are most excited to see what YOU make of its energies, in your own Sphere.

May it aid in the cultivation of your very own Opus, providing fuel for all you dare will·fully Dream — and more!

    Anointing Oils tend to be the most concentrated, powerful offering in each series.

These were integrated over 7-days of cloistered ritual, detailed extensively in the write-up. Each individual bottle contains drops of Oil from the central Mother Vessel. The base here is 100% organic golden jojoba oil. It includes sterling silver and 24k gold, among many other things. Thema Mundi will be bottled to order exclusively by its Creatrix, in Miron violet glass akin to its altar cloth, preserving its contents for years to come. This materia has been through 14 highly elected consecration procedures since 2019, in a process that is likely impossible to faithfully recreate for another 28-years. It is *extraordinarily powerful*, and limited edition in the truest sense. Making your selection displays the price.

    Thema Mundi Talismans

    , ,
    Note that no more standalone Talismans for Thema Mundi remain... the final available are being paired with Large Altar Globe Sets.
    The election chart for the casting of the Thema Mundi Talismans by Tony Mack can be found in the image gallery. These were fumigated with Thema Mundi Incense and contain Thema Mundi herbal mix within. They were created on the day of the Aries Ingress per Marsilio Ficino’s “How to Construct a Figure of the Universe” from The Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Book 3. This is the only Aries Ingress for another decade+ to feature co-presence with Jupiter.

    Modeled in hard carver’s wax and cast in electrum, gold, calcined salts of Sphere + Sundry's Thema Mundi materia, and a portion of casting sprues [metal from the channel that fills the castings, which talismans are later removed from] saved from S+ planetary series' comprising the Opus series. Casting was accompanied by suffumigation of S+ Thema Mundi incense.

    The front of the piece consists of a heptagonal blazing star, representing our seven planets or "wandering stars". The star is encircled with a zodiacal wheel engraved with the glyphs of the signs, positioned with cancer rising as it is in the Thema Mundi aka chart of the world. This image is set over gold, behind which a portion of S+ Thema Mundi materia was deposited before setting each layer together.

    The back of the piece is an engraved image of the Thema Mundi chart, showing the planets in their corresponding houses. In the "empty houses" [8th-12th], the constellations were engraved as they would be observed in the night sky houses at the time of the casting.

    Each talisman arrives in a keepsake necklace box bearing a Thema Mundi wax seal and includes a 20" silver chain.

    Offered for $4,800

The following write-up (at this point) is more of a magical record than it is an explanation of what this series does.

Much shared here may not make much sense to those who aren’t seasoned astrologers and/ or esotericists. It is not necessarily written for lay-people or even for commercial purposes.

That said, this is phenomenally safe and productive for how insanely powerful it is. Testimonials and field reports from the first cycle are starting to roll in, and more will be available over time.

Without further ado, and at long last, I present Opus!

Somewhere between the first Asclepius and Hermanubis workings of 2018, in the midst of planning for Jupiter’s Lightning Rod, an idea struck. I was in the shower (I was *high in the shower), and began contemplating the chart of the Thema Mundi — the mythical “Birth Chart of the World”, showcasing every Planet and Luminary in its own Rulership, used as a teaching schema in Hellenistic Astrology.

It dawned on me that… Saturn had recently ingressed into Capricorn, its first home sign… and that we were already in the throes of planning an election for Jupiter in Sagittarius, its first home sign… and that OH MY GODS.

*This* was a once-in-28-year opportunity to magically construct the whole. blessed. thing.

Re-construct might seem the appropriate term, but has this been done before?

Nope!

Not to anyone’s knowledge.
Not that there is any historic evidence of.

Thus, the code name for this project became Opus, since it would — likely — be the crowning achievement of all my work in AstroMagistry, cementing what would become a legacy. Something fellow practitioners would need wait to emulate (and they will!) at scale until 2050/52+.

The apotheosis of freshly minted magical technology, made available *exclusively* to you, my Dearest Sovereigns.

Those who know enough about astrology x the Thema Mundi already understand why Saturn and Jupiter would be the main gatekeepers here, because they take so long to move through the Zodiac — 28 and 12-years, respectively. The classical inners are relatively easy to capture, by comparison.

Though it did take a shocking 4-years to secure Luna in Cancer!

I hopped out and grabbed a towel so quickly I almost fell, and skidded like an Austin-seeking missile with wet feet to wherever he happened to be at the time. I have an idea!” the Mage exclaimed, panting, crazy eyed. “What is it?” he asked, confused, humored, yet somewhat exacerbated by the level of energy those heady early days routinely subjected him to via the vector of magically-over-infused ME.

A pause. The hands making that grand debut gesture, spreading wide from the center like the rollout of a pretend masthead… “the THEMA MUNDI”.

“What about it?”
“Making it!”
“For what?”
“As a series!”
“What… would that be good for?”
“…Everything!?!”
“A potentiator of epic proportions!”
“A manifestation engine the likes of which this World has neve…
It’s the chart that literally* BIRTHED the UNIVERSE!”

*figuratively ; )

With a little convincing (and the fact that I never dropped that bone), here we are today. Almost 5-years in, finally able to share with you what I’ve been building toward and leaving easter eggs for (with increasing frequency) all along the way.

For those entirely new to the concept of the Thema Mundi, there are a number of excellent resources to direct you toward. Chris Brennan did a brief technical overview, and Demetra George has a whole downloadable lecture.

Another is the book A Tiny Universe: Astrology and the Thema Mundi Chart by Joy Usher, which opens:

Thema Mundi is a mythical chart which pinpoints the alleged positions of the seven original planets at the time of Creation.
     Sometimes known as the Birth of the Universe, it has been reproduced throughout the ages, not because it is a true reflection of an actual event but because it is identified as the principal source, or origin, of astrological lore.
     As such, Thema Mundi is the fountainhead from which most astrological principle flows and is the initiator of the rules which so many astrologers abide by when delineating a horoscope.”

For those who were curious about what this series is for — it is for everything. And powerfully so.

[But more later!] Joy goes on:

Firmicus states that the legendary Hermes Trismegistus has provided the chart as a bridge between the immense Universe, and the millions of tiny universes, each of which is a human being.”

“Every man and every woman is a Star” (quoth Crowley), but times 10 (at least 7!) — since in actuality, every man and every woman is an entire Universe.

“Furthermore, if an astrologer follows the example of the Thema Mundi chart, they can learn the laws of astrology and by using this, they can decipher the destiny​ of one human being and how they differ from another.”

“Thema Mundi is the astrological tool of yesteryear, but it is still as relevant today as it was in the days of Greek philosophers such as Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle.
     Each time a practitioner of astrology picks up a chart, reads an article, talks to a client, thinks about a planet’s position, or merely looks up at the night sky, they are accessing information which began with Thema Mundi.”

“Thema Mundi’s beauty lies in its balance between theory and practical application as such it is a perfect teaching model to promote the connection between the divine and the mundane.”

Our collective adventures (and 6,000+ testimonials) have proven since Sphere + Sundry’s inception, that Talismanic Magic — and Talismanic Materia in particular — elevates theory into practice; and teachings into somatic, lived experiences. It expedites magical results, and synchronizes our inner Worlds with exterior Manifestations.

Magical and personal application *of* Thema Mundi energies are bound to produce some of the most profound level-ups that the co-mingling of astrology and magic can possibly provide our lived experience. On the deepest, most core-levels of our very Being (— and thus, Becoming.)

But first… returning to its own Creation…

The initial phase of the process was securing an excellent election for every individual element, and consecrating enough materia for each to contribute to Thema Mundi. Final ingredients include:

Luna in Cancer
Golden Sol
Exalted Mercury
Venus’ Aerial Delight
Mars in Scorpio
Jupiter in Sagittarius II
and, Saturn in Capricorn

Once we had each, an AstroMagical mise en place, the serious planning of *how* to ritually combine them came to the fore. With 7 placements and there being 7-days of Creation in the Book of Genesis, it seemed fitting that the integration and compounding of each influence should naturally occur over the course of 7-day’s ritual.

[I did mundanely combine all of these components in the lead-up to compare it with the final product, and get some small advance-sense of what it might feel like; the contrast is stark in its potency (and lack thereof!). The ritual integration sequence appears vital to the ultimate success and potentiation of this operation.]

Setting the Stage…

The last 5-years has — as for many of our Clientschanged the landscape of our lives, and the setting which houses the Operation that IS Sphere + Sundry. It has never truly been a business, or even been run like one — that’s just the form things like this seem to assume these days. An opt-in set of Initiatic astro-magical empowerments under the guiding auspices of a single Egregore, coordinated by one of the major “devils” you meet at the intersection of Astrology x Esotericism (a Coppock, or Coppocks), masquerading as eCommerce. And just as the Hoodoo Factory 8-years before it (wouldn’t name it that today!), the entire thing IS the magic it makes, skin and game alike.  What it chooses to bring into Being, well —

I’m as along for the ride as anyone.

In March of 2021, still mired in the trenches of the pandemic, we had already outgrown the dedicated detached workshop Sphere + Sundry had moved into since purchasing our first home (a magical feat/ testimonial for another day). We were needing more hands on deck, and the terrifying, single-lane gravel driveway that ascended Mt. Coppockalypse was not good for deliveries or more than one team member commuting around the same time. The need for professional operations to be moved elsewhere became undeniable.

I decided to dedicate the Sun in Aries working we had scheduled on the 21st to personal talismans for locating a headquarters and securing staff, rather than creating a whole new series (kolonías from that day were added to the previous 2020 Exalted Sol, which would be released a week later, on March 28th 2021).

Three days after Exalted Sol’s launch, I felt compelled to drive farther past the post office than usual and discovered a “For Sale” sign outside an open gate. It was for “The Crown Jewel of Jacksonville”, because of course. I made some calls, and by April 3rd we had entered into escrow. On April 9th, I was given the keys at closing, and went to pour a celebratory cognac. There were hundreds of glasses in that dark, Covid-distressed (yet fully loaded) restaurant bar to choose from, and I just so happened to blindly pick one of two we’ve ever found that had a Crown motif in the base, syncing our toast to its brochure… to the Sun in Aries workings… to Luminous Crown… and even, the Double Crown of April 2016.

Magic is real, my friends. And it is alive and well at Sphere + Sundry.

Much having to do with this 3-acre, 3-building campus was unfinished or in need of repair, with a decade or more of deferred maintenance behind it. In addition to the more visible surface work (what we make + ship), there was the whole side project (and major expense) of bringing *O so much* up to code; and finishing and remodeling aspects of it to suit the needs of a rapidly growing Sphere + Sundry (this being its 3rd base of operations).

The medium-term goal is to open a showroom/ will call, and to host incredible events for our local and digital Communities. The long-term… time will tell. But I’ve got a lot of ideas ; )

**Please note that we are closed to all public at present! Anyone who stops by will be turned away at the gate until that changes. On-site security, cameras, wards, and alarms are in place.**

The property includes a Historic National Landmark — the true Crown Jewel of which the brochure speaks. You’ve seen aspects of it in photos, within and without, and you’re about to see a whole lot more of them, since the core Thema Mundi operation took place in magical cloister there. During its acquisition, we had to move the release of Saturn in Capricorn forward to pay for closing; aptly so, given Saturn (whose number is 3) rules official landmarks, physically degraded properties, and overwrought amounts of responsibility (prone to water damage).

The House is storied in and of itself — a Queen Anne-style Victorian built in 1892 by Jeremiah Nunan as a Christmas present for his wife, Delia. It was also the real-life inspiration behind the setting of a groundbreaking PC game called The 7th Guest (April 1993), which expedited the uptake of CD-ROM drives at the time, was the first game to feature live actors role-playing in collaboration with digital environments, and kicked off the entire Haunted Mansion video game genre.

[Available on Steam, Switch and for iPhone, if you’re curious!]

The House is the setting of a murder mystery that the player moves through by solving various puzzles. The first mini-game involves looking through a telescope(!) to solve a puzzle on the face of a planet(!) — which just so happens to contain the letters of the SATOR square [which is neither here nor there, but sync-y and esoterically amusing nonetheless!].

Without drawing too many parallels (no murders no madness, please!), it does appear that the Spirit of this House has — not unlike Expedite, perhaps — public aspirations, and, based on the light in the attic on the 7th Guest cover — the very same which would host the Thema Mundi working one Saturn return later — may have been winding its own way toward such an event, aligning itself time and time again with the mysterious and supernatural, the commercially successful, and yet entirely devout.

Let us not overlook that there are 7 classical Planets,
all of which were individually honored “Guests” over our 7-days!

Clients may recall how I went full incommunicado for one week, starting on Thanksgiving of 2022. Jupiter’s unsung feast day (always on the ♃th Thors-day) — and a convenient opportunity to slip ‘way from mundane professional responsibilities.

Rules were: no outside contact, aside letters Austin + I exchanged on the exterior step each day; no social media, texting, emailing, or calling; and no screen-based media (with the exception of select research and the occasional classic Julia Child cooking tutorial, which, as you shall see, was necessary! Half this is a food blog; sorry and/ or, you are welcome!).

Otherwise: just reading, cooking, and dreaming; meditation, magic, and Sumo.

Each day was themed according to the Luminary or Planet being integrated, via the food, dress, research topics, soundtrack, and activities at hand. Planetary days were ignored in favor of the order Thema Mundi determines, starting with Cancer and ending with Capricorn.

An aspect that did inform beginning on a Thursday was that Jupiter (the most fortuitous Sphere) Exalts in Cancer, first house and Rising of the operation entire. This allowed for the genesis (the most important moment) of Thema Mundi’s integration to begin on Luna’s Eve and in Jupiter’s hour.

Planetary hours going forward were not a factor. Each incorporation began at 15° of the Ascending Sign to be ritually incorporated into the whole, shifting later and later each day, making for a practically psychedelic, revolving dynamic of a lived experience (which carries over in the influence of this materia!); and had incredible impacts on the the light patterns and sequence of events, as you’ll soon see.

[None of which was intentionally coordinated or anticipated beforehand!]

Meals and libation were prepared to suit the tastes of our daily Patron, and served as offerings to them, in addition to being eaten by the Priestess to attune to each Sphere. Food belonging to any of the Spheres which had *already been* incorporated was also welcome, just as the material composition of Thema Mundi is based on all substance which came before.

Sphere + Sundry’s full Ritual Bathing + Energetic Cleansing Protocol was also undertaken daily, using materia from each matching election.

This was followed by the donning of clean, appropriately colored raiments with coordinated Talismans and Anointings per the day’s Power, and began as the honoree’s Sign began Rising.

Allow us now, Dearest Reader, to take you on a digital tour of that fateful week’s Great Works via its magical record, with some director’s aside regarding the process, as well as occult and astro-magical musings in regards to Creation. Apologies for any blur — incense smoke, herbal dust, and ill-lit ritual settings can be like that!

Ripples of the coming work began traveling backward, washing upon the shoreline of the night before. Netflix had debuted a new documentary, “Our Universe”, with an inaugural episode titled “Chasing Starlight”.

**Note that many of the photos here are actually galleries, which can be carouseled through using arrows in the center left/ right, swiping, or click to view fullscreen and use arrow keys!**

Check-in to magical cloister was 11:49 AM on Thursday, November 24th 2022. The early focus was on starting the baguettes and preparing the “Wombs” of Operation, ranging from the Altar Room itself to the setup of empty vessels, since no work had been done prior, apart from establishing a clean slate and transporting base materials.

Lunch was comprised of bagel with cream cheese, with a post-ritual dinner of the homemade bread, Swiss fondue, green apples, root vegetables, and white wine. The book began was Sleeping, Dreaming, and Dying by Francisco J. Varela, and the soundtrack was Pink Floyd.

Following the first ritual bathing attunement, habiliments were light grey; the Mage adorned with Luna in Cancer’s own Ornate Talisman, ensconced with Jyotish-grade pearl earrings (worn each integration).

The core ritual time was from 7:31-8:45 PM, beginning with offerings, prayers, and petitions for blessing, empowerment, and confirmation of the Work. It proceeded with pouring the first of 7 layers of candle wax, imbued with powdered Luna in Cancer materia alone; and dispersing more consecrated herbs into the jars and bins which all else would come, over the next 6-days, to marry.

In terms of Thema Mundi having Cancer Rising…. water is the most obvious single element that sets our Planet apart from all others, comprising up to 70% of its surface and space, in a nearly identical ratio to that of our own micro-cosmic bodies. Many religious and folk traditions speak of Great Floods — important Waymarks in the development of spirituality and civilization, and a commonly held belief is that all life originally sprang from the sea, including those of our earliest, most primitive Ancestors.

Cancer is the Cardinal (read: initiatic) water sign ruled by the Moon, which oversees the oceans (whose tides She pulls) and every womb of this Earth, but exterior (and predating by millennia) all of that, the first Womb of all — The Big Black Void, fertile with all-potential; Hostess to the Big Bang, Genetrix of the first Star.

Of Light, of Heat, and of the yang-Impetus.

Which ushers in Thema Mundi’s second sign, ruled by the Sun.

Most of the day was spent in a warm kitchen, enjoying yuzu sake and listening to Tolkien’s Silmarillion while preparing Sol’s meal — a one-pot (organic, free range) chicken, roasted with mushroom-sweetbread stuffing prepared with Luna’s day-old bread crumbs and rosemary.

Squeezing the mushrooms in a tea towel as Julia advised looked perfectly (and accidentally!) anatomically heart-like, mushroom “blood” and everything.

[For those unfamiliar astro-anatomical correspondences, Melothesically speaking, Leo rules the heart.]

A single stag — timeless symbol of virility, magical, and masculine potency — was circumambulating the House throughout the day, catching my eye through one window or another, making a (very!) handsome show of himself.

Dinner was served with edible flowers in yellow and orange tones, with a single live flame to warm the sauce, uniting all components of the meal.

Ritual baths were taken, orange was worn, and at 9:58-11:16 PM, Sol Himself was ritually served.

This second layer of candles involved powdering Sol + Luna materia together post-ritual combination, and sprinkling the top of each candle before pouring. Each day, each layer, each new influence was added.

Mercury’s day began with the audiobook How Forests Think by Eduardo Kohn. Scrolling through the photo roll, notes were added to two bookmarks with resonant time stamps.

23:05: “Mercury rules over the interpretation of signs. Canes (walking sticks) serve as 3rd party extra-sensory extremities (primitive/ classical technologies) used for navigating the world around us, breaking away from the dual and strictly embodied. An antenna for perception… satellites… the brain and developmental process in utero…”

33:11: “Dreams spilling out of the waking world, sleeping in the jungle…”

Lunch was a combination of food groups and serving styles incorporated by the Luminaries in the days preceding, but highlighting the Mercurial functions of dexterity and articulation. The rest of the day was fueled by trail mix with multi-colored chocolates, and (apparently) a dinner of sour patch kids, champagne, and Hermes-approved absinthe.

According to the notes, activities included some light “writhing” (ecstatic trance work) and energy healing with the Kamla shell, macerating strawberries for Venus’ breakfast, organizing the pantry, playing laser with Sumo, and deciding to learn Vastu (Indian Feng Shui). I also spent time reading short stories from various tiny books I had gotten for house guests to enjoy (but had never read).

The one already in my room was How to Become a Taoist Immortal, an Edo Manga.

See on the first page how the originals are read — how dynamic, winding and Mercurial they are, and how many related keywords apply to *not only* this working’s themes and ingredients (walking sticks, nuts, berries, mushrooms, sake, etc.), but concepts central to Sphere + Sundry’s guiding ethos, and even the *location* Thema Mundi is happening within.

[Being a ‘Hermit’ in the attic that had served as a ‘Cloud Chamber’ once before, for the Jupiter’s Empyreal Vantage shoot]

It’s at this point and on this day that an onslaught of synchronicities start appearing everywhere… lived reality becoming subsumed by itself and this process like some unstoppable kaleidoscopic cascade of Ouroborotic manifestation. Think it, dream it, do it, whatever it happens to be inevitably bubbles back up, sometimes minutes later in an unexpected, yet clearly resonant form.

Magical hyper-flow unlocked…

In planning Thema Mundi, it was important to Austin and myself that we find ways to continue incorporating his presence into the process, since the entire Sphere + Sundry project has been a collaboration between our talents and skillsets since before the beginning. As such, his daily dropoffs included language for an opening address to each Power written the same-day, except on Mercury’s… since no such thing was in the bundle.

I discovered this at 12:10 AM before a 12:29 start time, which necessitated a breaking of the digital barriers that had — heretofore, been so carefully erected and abided by. A call was placed and text messages sent.

The only email read during quarantine was the opening to Mercury’s address, in perfect alignment with its Divine Arcana: communicating, tech-using, boundary-pushing, and rule-breaking (all with the swiftness, and an end-goal in mind!).

Following these consistent scripts (repeated from the Moon, growing longer daily), select excerpts from the Picatrix’s planetary addresses were read, sealed with ongoing prayers from the Altar of the Heart. The process of material integration beginning all over again, welcoming each new and noble Power.

I woke up the next day with a Mercurial hangover of sorts, still encountering ripples of the Winged Messenger’s role in Creation, before Venus began gently folding herself into the process, blending and tempering influences on both ends of the timeline.

Fun (embarrassing? weird?) fact: I had never actually read Ficino’s Three Books on Life before this. Despite how resonant my approach and work in astro-magic has been (the household joke being ‘Kait doesn’t have to read it because in a past life, she obviously wrote it’NOT A REAL CLAIM! 100% A SHAME-DEFERRING, REBELLION ABIDING *JOKE*).

Breakfast was a Belgian waffle with freshly whipped cream and homemade strawberries with vanilla bean sugar. The rest of the day’s menu was comprised various treats and indulgences from Austin’s dropoff, well paired wine, and mango.

Venus’ book became The Spell of the Sensuous by David Abram, listened to for hours while staining the hinges of a makeup vanity and its companion tuffet a deep, lustrous gold.

Venus’ window was from 3:03 AM – 4:19, Sunday night.

Upon completion of Venus’ incorporation, I discovered for the first time — with Ficino’s good aid! — how to bridge the gap between Thema Mundi and Talismans for it:

I made the decision then to invite Tony to create Talismans during the next 2023 Aries ingress (the only to feature Jupiter’s co-presence for another 12-years), which would include finished Thema Mundi materia, as well as be consecrated and ‘birthed’ in its smoke [being made available to Plus Members in a Rare Item Lottery soon, and if any remain, the public].

Mars’ day came. Dinner was a drop-off of fried chicken, hot sauce, and (anti-surprise! somewhat burnt!) barbecue.

Our window of operation was from 5:29 AM to 6:47, meaning daylight began showing itself by the end of the ritual, for the first time since the process began.
