internet update + Protection/Reversing community altar service

Seraphin Station

Just got internet back yesterday afternoon after the latest round of the neverending dance with what must be the worst ISP in North America. So even casual, irregular readers probably know the chorus to this tune by now: “I’m working on getting caught up” and “sorry I’m posting this so late.”

I’ve been wanting to offer something like this for a while, and I finally have a space cleared to dedicate an altar to it full-time. This way, I can offer it as a regular, ongoing service every month that people can drop into as the need arises without having to book anything.

There are Pay What You Can options for this community altar service.

Purpose/Goals

This service focuses on goals related toprotection(both spiritual and physical),deflecting negativity,and in cases where someone is aiming something at you personally, returning that crap right back to the sender.

Oh ffs – Jezebel root PSA/rant + crash course in rhizomes

Seraphin Station

Iris fulva, one of the species whose rhizome is called Jezebel root. Public domain. [1]

This post represents stages of my research today to figure out where the hell something crazy came from. Watch the crazy unfold.

You keep using that word…

Jezebel root is not this…whatever this crap is. Pro tip – the stuff in that picture isn’t a root at all.

Reportedly???

Jezebel root is not “reportedly related to the Iris flower.” It IS the root of an iris flower. But the stuff in that picture? Is not the root of an iris flower. Matter of fact, it looks like that same crap in the first picture. I’m beginning to think an entire segment of the “occult world” has been using tree bark for Jezebel root for a whole generation now.

Pro tip: don’t buy herbs from places where nobody knows what a root looks…

St. Bartholomew crosses delivery update

Seraphin Station

Folks who ordered a St. Bartholomew’s cross talisman to be created during the course of their booked St. Bartholomew altar service:

If you recall, these come in drawstring bags that hold the handmade cedar cross along with some other required herbal ingredients.

Well, the crosses turned out fine. The handsewn bags made of delicate and slippery material? Not so much. These just do not lend themselves to hand sewing easily. They looked like crap 🙂

My amazing mother, God bless her, is bailing me out on these. She picked up the fabric and is going to machine-sew them. They’re gonna go out later than I expected, but they’re gonna look *way* better! So I appreciate your patience with these, and I think you’ll find it pays off.

St. Raymond Altar Service: Stop Gossip, Court Case, Peaceful Home, Employment

Seraphin Station

San Ramon Nonato, Jose Aragon, American (New Mexico), c.1820-1835
Philadelphia Museum of Art. Public domain.

This work begins the night of August 31, the feast day of St. Raymond Nonnatus, but there is some wiggle room and you absolutely can book late, as long as you see slots still available.

St. Raymond Nonnatus gets his name — which means the not-born — by virtue of his being delivered by C-section. Considering this happened in the early 13th century, it was quite an unusual event (and doubtless quite grisly), but his poor mother died in childbirth and this was the only way Raymond could be saved.

This is where his patronage of pregnant women, childbirth, midwives, and babies comes from. But as is typically the case, there’s a whole slew of additional lore and tradition that has sprung up around him that accounts for many aspects of his veneration today…

Chicken Coop Sale

Seraphin Station

No, we aren’t selling chicken coops! We need to fix ours, stat, so I’ve put pretty much everything on sale for a few days, at both Etsy and SeraphinStation.com, to encourage folks to have a look around and restock any spiritual supplies they might be running low on.

It’s hurricane season on the Gulf Coast, and while we’ve just gotten rain so far (and the slow AF internet to go with it), there’s always something new headed our way. Plus we have two broody hens, and I wasn’t gonna let them hatch any more chicks after our rooster ratio got out of control, but then Joe and Pretty Boy both died in that predator attack and… ugh, it’s just been a really hard year on the chicken front, and I just couldn’t bring myself to try to break them of being broody right now.

This is all to say that…

St. Bartholomew Altar Service & Talisman – Uncrossing, Protection, Cast Off Evil, Spiritual Cleansing, Road Opening

Seraphin Station

This is a three-day service beginning the night of August 24th, the feast day of St. Bartholomew. There is some wiggle room and you can join up after the work starts as long as you see that there are still spots left and it doesn’t say “sold out.”

St. Bartholomew is the patron saint of bookbinders, butchers, tanners, and cheese makers. Some very brief and pretty confusing scriptural references mean he’s numbered among the original apostles, so we don’t know that much about him as a historical figure. But as is so often the case, rich folk traditions have filled in the gaps.

His strong association with knives and sharp things has a gruesome origin – he’s said to have been martyred by being skinned alive – but today he’s associated not just with the literal cutting of things but also with cutting *through* thingsmore figuratively. So his devotees might call…

Cor Leonis Community Altar Service + Talisman — for courage, victory, recognition, stamina, healing, power shifts

Seraphin Station

Yes, Saturn’s been in Aquarius for a while now. This isn’t new. And it will be there into 2023. And it’s been all stompy and cranky with the lockdowns and restrictions and quarantines. 

But we just had a major, stellarfullmoon, astrologically speaking (forgive the pun), with the moon in Aquarius conjunct beneficent Jupiter and making actually ZERO hard or negative aspects for just a few hours. Pretty rare lineup of lovely, really.Talked about it in the client forum a bit if you missed it.

And right now, the sun’s conjunct Regulus, one of the so-called Fixed Stars, the brightest one in the constellation of Leo, also known as Cor Leonis, or the heart of the lion. This one is all about success, courage, strength, victory. It’s not a super long-lasting conjunction, but wow, is it ever timely right now.

Remember our Saturn-Jupiter conjunction in December? At 0 degrees Aquarius? This was…

New single-herb sampler packs, herb blends with price breaks for bundles

Seraphin Station

I think I finally, finally found a way to be able to afford to sell small packets of powder and small packets of herbs. I had to try out five different potential solutions, but I think the one I’ve got now will work. You’ll see a little widget on the page telling you about price breaks you get at certain tiers, like so:

The issue:

Listing, site, and processing/transaction fees are breathtaking, and many of them are a flat fee per transaction plus a percentage. 50 cents plus 3.5% plus 2% off the top of every transaction is maybe not such a big deal if everything you stock starts at $20 or something, but if you want to offer an array of things under $5, you cannot actually afford to do it sometimes (and this isn’t even considering what it costs per item to list something, or per month…

Seraphin Station

The St. Martha service started on July 29th, but there are several modes of work available as part of this service, and most of them can be booked at any point during the month. There are some Pay What You Can options, too.

August honey jars for prosperity/career/income and for love/relationships start on Monday, August 9th. As usual, the prosperity/income jar has Pay What You Can options.

I’m still working on recovering photos from when I blew up my Google Drive – somehow some folder exploded all over my desktop or something, or maybe i just accidentally copied *everything* to my desktop – I’m not really sure – but I’m still working on cleaning up that mess. But as I locate and identify stuff, I’m getting the Discord server/relevant clients as applicable updated with their photos/reports/etc. So if you haven’t visited the server in a while because I hadn’t posted…
