I call out to Lady Moon
And Nuit looks down.

Moon’s eye bright
As Her body undulates
In a sea of starry expanse.

She smiles down upon me
Her daughter
Her own.

Her breath blows
Through leafless branch
Stirring dry leaves as
They cackle and call.

Take me into your arms
Let me ride the path
Of your light into your
Womb of remaking.

In your fullness
I find my home.

In your brilliance
I find my way.

In your healing waters
I find my heart.

And when I stand in the glory
Of your night sky newly birthed
I lift my voice in devotion
Your daughter
Your own.

Nuit looks down
Mother Moon’s eye
Filled with Love.

Many blessings on this night of Full Moon….

Under Pressure: Neptune Stations Direct

Posted in Astrology, Auspicious Days, Neptune, retorgrades on November 12, 2015 by themagickalpen

Neptune Stations Direct
11:32am (EST)

Moon in Aquarius
Sun in Scorpio

Neptune stations direct, tomorrow on the 18th late morning and the pressures that have been building as it held focus and attention on all aspects of emotion and the intuitive nature is ready for full force release. This planet of the deep and hidden depths of our waterscape has been retrograde  since June 12th and remains in its ruling astrological sign of Pisces. It is the third of the four furthest planets to have been retrograde this year and spent some time in overlap with two others – Pluto (stationed Direct on Sept. 24/25) and Uranus which will bring a burst of electrically charged light December 25th, hot on the heels of the Solstice of the 21st.

The planet Neptune’s energies are those of a higher resonance of planet Venus. Venus concerns itself with relationship, refinement and beauty as a source of emotional gratification and desire. But, Neptune takes these qualities and brings them to the truly refined and beautiful place of unconditional love honed by deeper understanding of the true nature of the qualities it seeks to form lasting relationship with.  This is one of the reasons why the Neptune Retrograde has churned the waters as it seeks its source far deeper into the comfort of the reserves that we normally cling to for fear of lack. Everything we thought we believed to be true about our expectations of relationship and matters of the heart has had an extra dose of scrutiny and intensity infused into it under the steady and potent energy of Neptune.

In  Mythos, the God Neptune is ruler of the seas and his Trident pierces through the deepest and darkest of waters as he rises from the depths and surveys the land of man. Whatever is in proximity of his rising will either withstand the turbulence of changing waters or be drowned by the sudden movement and shift in the current. Because of energies of the other Retrograde planets and timing within the Solar Year of Neptune’s, the peaks of rising have been far less substantial than the depths of submerging. This action has resulted in forming a vacuum of contraction and a veiling of highly pressurized surface which is now ready to be released.

This damming up has presented itself in outbursts of emotion that would have otherwise been controllable and the heartfelt expression of any and all those things that are near and dear to us. Tears have flooded and pushed to the surface of even the most stoic of logical mind and what we believed to not be of concern to us, was found to be precisely the thing to stir up our feelings.

Sun in Scorpio

This solar month of Scorpio has encouraged a particularly deep response in resonation with Neptune nearing the final stages of its retrograde. Scorpio is intense, deep and often mysterious in how its affections are expressed and doled out. The Scorpion is placed as one of three symbols of Scorpios energy and can be quick and painful in its sting, rising from beneath the soil unexpectedly. This dynamic has lent itself to uncovering what lay buried beneath the ocean’s floors of our emotional seascape. All that we have kept submerged and hidden, particularly from ourselves now has the potential to be brought to the surface and flushed free as Neptune open’s its gates of release.

Moon in Aquarius

The Moon transits into the astrological sign of airy Aquarius on the date of Neptune’s stationing direct. Mind will finally have its say, but because it is mantled in the cloak of watery Lady Moon, the product will be one that is filled with the rationale about “Why I feel this way”. Within the scope of Aquarius’ gifts is that of vision. Being able to see many outcomes and zero in on what is most needed for the greater good. We can hold this intention in directing the force of Neptune’s release towards its waters being received where they will be of most benefit. When vision and heart collaborate the result can be much like the pressurized watery cleansing of an edifice that has accumulated the grime of years of neglect, yet stands strong and beautiful in the potential of all who will benefit from its purpose.

Under Pressure

So, how do we navigate these waters of force? Ride the current and relax into the freedom of a heart flowing freely and unencumbered. The year is nearing its end and we will soon also be released from the highly electrical charge of Uranus and its retrograde, so for now enjoy a flow that is powerful and potent in what it may be redirected towards. Hold the intention that those areas and people in our lives that need a strong and power flow of love, compassion and understanding will feel the healing waters that we may now offer. Hold the intention that you will be both generator and recipient of the back flow of waters that reveal the limitless depths of expression that you may call upon within your own Neptunian waters. And, as the Moon transits into the astrological sign of Pisces on the 19th, it’s ruling planet, Neptune will carry you to the shores of unconditional love and the deep wisdom of heart-felt compassion.

Keeping It Real! Full Moon in Taurus

Posted in Astrology, Auspicious Days, Esbat, Full Moon, Lunar, Magick on October 27, 2015 by themagickalpen


October 27.2015
Full Moon in Taurus
8:05am (EDT)

Sun in Scorpio

The moon waxes full in the astrological sign of Taurus this morning bringing an opportunity to explore what grounds us as the waters run deep and passionately. Taurus is an Earth sign of the Fixed Modality. Earth provides stability and a place from which to grow, inclusive of all that is physical and manifest in quality.  The Fixed Modality provides an energy of structure, being able to synthesize what seeks to contribute more of its energy and drawing that into a space that can transform and make more useable the by product as it flows out to a more flexible state. The symbol of the Bull is associated with Taurus and that selection alone gives rise to understanding of how strong this foundation can be.

Taurus is the strength that stands its ground secure in the sheer power it knows it can exert in holding steady whatever its focus may be. Apply this to the lunarscape of emotions and you have the recipe for staying the course and a certain predictability of response.  It is for this reason that workings using the energy of a Taurus Moon benefit the most when they involve a shoring up of what we consider out foundations of heart to be.

You know the proverbial image of the bull in the china shop reeking havoc on the delicate collectibles? I like to think f this scenario not so much as a representation of the awkwardness and lack of grace held in an animal that is far too large and solidly built to be in such refined spaces; but rather as an idea of how strength and girth carves out new boundaries for its impact when inhibited by what is far too fragile in the first place. What is in this situation is not the bull, who by the way, is simply doing and moving in the same way it would in any setting. The objects that are held static and on display to be appreciated, simply for their beauty rather than the actual function they may serve are what provide the setting for chaotic dismantling.

As with each Full Moon alignment, the Sun is directly opposite the Moon; in this case the astrological energy of this solar month is that of Scorpio. Scorpio is a Water sign of the Fixed Modality and has the infamous identification as the sign of excess, addictions, uncontrolled passions and seeking into the depths of shadow and the occult, never to return to the real world again. And, as with each of the signs of the Zodiac, these are only the predispositions towards imbalance in what Scorpio has as its gift.

Scorpio is also one that has the ability to truly transform. The symbol of usual reference is that of the Scorpion, hidden and ready to strike out whether provoked, or not. There are also two other associations. One being the Eagle and having the keenest of sight, perched above and able to select that which is appropriate prey to nourish and sustain. The third is the Phoenix, the creature that purposefully cleanses with the Fires it has created of its own free will and rises from the ashes, stronger, more beautiful and wiser than in its previous iteration. And, during this solar month, the Sun is shining brightly into those areas that need some of that energetic housecleaning and transformation. This becomes the funeral pyre that burns away the dross of emotional baggage that inhibits growth and forces the death and rebirth of something better than before.

Traditionally, these two points of alignment between Sun and Moon are considered oppositions and the implication is one of a tug of war; each pulling on the other in an effort to upset the status quo. This opposition is precisely what is needed to draw the best from both and force each to play nice with one another. I use the word force here in that the process often begins with resistance and the need for will and desire to take hold and set the right intention that will attract what is needed from the energy of both.

Keeping It Real!

I see this Full Moon as a rare opportunity to allow the freedom to explore, indulge and fuel my passions while holding the intention of remaining firmly anchored in the strength of my manifest power. Scorpio is highly intuitive and as such, it is not always easy to sort out what is reality, fantasy or something else altogether. But, if I make use of Taurus’ deep connection to all that constitutes the physical world I live in, I can allow the tether line to reach a little further into the astral and etheric realms, bringing back that which is needed.

Both Moon and Sun are providing the light that illuminates the emotional landscape that is held in the deepest parts of self. Taurus provides the vessel of physical form that Scorpio may work its magick of transforming the desires of heart that are both intuitive and real in their actions.

Mother Moon sits high
In darkened starlit sky
Body strong and full
Guardian and protectress
Of earth’s lands that she surveys.

Sun reaches deep into
Waters dark and thick
Pulling to the surface
The mysteries of the heart.

Moon and Sun each light
Illuminating what is to be.

Moon and Sun companions
Birthing what is to be.

I sit in the light of both
Dipping deep into my desire
Passion rises like waters
Boiling up and form gives way
To visions and on lofty wings
I soar and fly.

Sun my raging passion and
Moon the healing balm that
Quiets the pain of change.

I strain and resist the truth
Of my inner sight and wings
Beat furiously carrying me
High into the unknown night.

In the arms of Mother Moon
I find quiet – rest and rebirth
The flames have risen
The ashes been rendered
And to earth and form
I now return.

The labors of my journey
In the fullness of Moon
Heart’s orb now held within
My body of strength as Sun
Commands the day.

Many Blessings of Taurus Full Moon’s Strength……

The Moon is New in the astrological sign of Libra.  Cardinal Air and the balance and refinement needed to bring into the aethers those thoughts that will lift and inspire. Maiden Moon is hidden from view but Hers is the energy that tests the waters of faith. Faith that she shines brightly despite her dark veil. Faith that she will come to Her fullness as the days pass and in that fullness the splendor of her beauty will shine down. Faith that as is the cycle of all things She will pass into her mantle of wisdom and deep gnosis. Read more …..

Saturn and A Return to Grace

Posted in Uncategorized on October 6, 2015 by themagickalpen


I know my strengths and my weaknesses and I have made allies of them both. I have felt the wrath of the Lord of Time and in his terrible wake I have learned to use time purposefully.

I have stretched and strained against a skin that was too tight. But in the weariness of my surrender to its necessary structure, I have marveled at what was birthed from its metamorphic cocoon.

I have remained steadfast on my spiritual path and when the Darkest night of my Soul’s searching pulled me into the chasm of doubt, I listened to the truth of my heart.

I have known failure and have been the intimate companion of the false pride and ego that covered those tracks. I sought the comfort of superiority to hide the shame of inadequacy. And in each place of comfort I have fallen further from my true self. Age has taught me the transparency of this pride and dues that are to be paid to feed its illusion.

I have embraced the Dark Mother and become her instrument when needed and although every action taken was not guided by wisdom’s hand the knowledge of my fragile emotions taught me the wisdom of compassion.

I have listened when I did not want to and found that what I imagined to be the empty space of my knowing was abundantly filled.

I have expressed my truth loudly and boldly, when perhaps I should have remained silent. And I have been silent when standing up for myself would have produced a better outcome.

I have seen the best and worst in myself and allow each to flow in accord with the stream of my heart. That stream has carried me to places unexpected and at times the dams that caused rerouting were placed there by my own intention.

I have the writings of my youth etched into the body that has become a Mother and protectress of what I created. The Crone has spoken her words to me along every step of my journey, even at the time before word was my own and the strength of tiny legs would carry me into her arms.

I have crossed the Gates of Time and my actions have made intentions that brought me to places I had never thought would be revealed. And, all the while I stood at the center of the chaos I had created in striving too far and too soon.

Now I understand. Now I see the order of my own sacred Universe and no longer do I fear the remaking of what I will become. The imprint of my life will forever be encoded within the passing of the aeons and the memory of my existence will seed the creation of what is my legacy. I willingly step into this cocoon of rebirthing as the next journey of my life’s adventure unfolds and when the time is readied and the vessel has been rendered whole, I will emerge as the butterfly , gossamer wings of graceful beating carried on the current of a life well-experienced…….

I share this writing with you, as the transiting planet Saturn aligns exactly with my natal Saturn tomorrow. This is my second Saturn return and one that in this iteration, and because Saturn moved through a series of Retrogrades, passed over this “sweet” spot 3 times.

For those of you not familiar with what a Saturn Return means, here are the basics. The planet Saturn is equated with the archetypes of time, Karma and crossing Thresholds, to name a few. This work is typified by rigid structure and a restoration of order to what has been or could become chaotic and random. Traditionally, there is not a whole lot of flexibility in the demands of Saturn, but this necessary constriction actually does provide a greater level of opportunistic flexibility that is the effect of reining everything in. Imagine a whirling bowl of candies and you have your intention set on just the piece you want. It would be much more difficult to grab on to if there was no structure to contain it (the bowl). And, regardless that the candies are spinning and not a still point of retrieval, if you slow down (time), center and focus (your internal structure) you will eventually be able to discern the patterns occurring (flexibility in patience and observation) that will provide just the right moment to reach in and grab (retrieval on the threshold) what you desire.

The “return” occurs when transiting Saturn comes to rest at its exact position-house and degree – as it was in your natal chart at the time of your birth; approx. every 29-31yrs. Most will have at least two Saturn returns (ages 29-31 and 58-62) in a lifetime. These life markers are often denoted by a prominent change of events. For instance, when I was 29 I had my first child, which caused a modification of my dancing career and by age 31, I was pregnant with Twins, which ended it completely and made me a stay-at-home Mom. I had identified myself as a dancer from a very young age so this sudden and final removal of it from my life, not to mention that I no longer had the thin body of a dancer, which I had finally controlled, did a real number on who I thought myself to be. I loved being home with our children and in looking back, that first pregnancy probably saved me physically since anorexia was preying heavily and having another life to be responsible for forced me to restructure, rethink and start eating. The four children that followed each brought their own blessing and a new realization of who I was in many settings and the impact of that self on others.

At the time of this Saturn return, all 5 of our children have graduated college (they were 5 under 5), and all within a short period of time. Three have moved to the West Coast (we live on the East) with the other 2 soon to follow to destinations unknown pursuing people and animal medicine. This has not only left an empty nest and very quiet house, but also the endings of the way in which we interacted with our children; no longer children but, adults. This has been an adjustment in knowing when to step in and when it is simply overstepping my bounds. Another point of redefining who I am in their world and finding that place within my own. A new job presented itself with more responsibility and a greater learning curve and the leaving behind of my previously isolated work setting to interaction constantly. Basically, I am a loner. Just following the first pass of this return, I embraced the unexpected opportunity to leave the Coven that was the first home of 18 years within our Tradition and form the 12th Coven of that Tradition. The final passing of this second Saturn return, punctuating 10 months of planning, additional teaching and more in preparation for a smooth transition in the next several months. Again, another make-over, forcing me into networking and starting all over again with a new group of people, circumstances and flow.

Remember I said that the Saturn return will also play out in the House where that planet resides in your birth chart? Saturn and my natal Moon (emotional landscape and processing) are both in my Fifth House- the House of Creative Endeavors. Now think about my two experiences with Saturn’s return. All are at the emotional level dealing with those things that have/are the creative products of my life. Pretty cool, huh!

During the time of your Saturn return, you receive a double helping of imminent order and change- whether you wish it or not. This is where we can either see the container as half empty or half full, the former usually being the perspective that has denoted this phase of our life’s journey as the “dreaded” Saturn return. I choose to see it as a time to tidy up house, reassess, actively and purposefully surrender to the process and see what new opportunities emerge as potential. And, in the process implement the adage, “Know Thyself”.

With these thoughts in mind, I have actively been engaged in preparation for this event for several years leading up to it. I also knew that there would be three times of agitation and stirring up the foundations. The first occurred in the Winter of 2014 – the second this Spring and now this final conjunction in the Fall; fully thrust into the power of Three. I see this as the co-joining of the Crone calling to herself the memory of the Maiden and the nurturing of the Mother. Each of these points opportunities to review, refine and look through the lens of objective time to re-structure what my focus will be moving forward.

Much of what we attribute Saturn’s energy to is based upon the Ancient Roman God, Saturnus. He was revered as a god of generation, dissolution, plenty, periodic renewal(birth) and liberation (death). Saturnalia was his Festival, held in December and was a time of feasting and revelry. Eventually, Saturn became associated with Chronos – “Father Time”, the passing or changing of the aeons as one supplanted the other. Any change in time causes disruption and the amount of that disruption is largely dependent upon how much order and structure is enforced to cause it to proceed “just so”.

Another perspective of Saturn is that of its placement on the Qabalistic Tree of Life and the sphere of Binah. Binah is one of the three that form the Supernal Triangle representing the active principle of creation. Binah is considered the Great Mother. She is the womb of container that holds the seed of potential and it is Her structure and order that in time and if viable begins the journey towards manifest form in the last sphere of Malkuth. For those of you not familiar with Qabalah I have listed some resources at the end, but for now all you need is that concept of the Creatrix.

The Gates of Saturn

I am Jove’s partner
Without me all would dissipate into the ether.

Structure order boundary and container
Are all creations of my domain.

I have seen aeons pass and know each
Of the secrets that have been carefully hidden from view.

I am record keeper and guardian of destiny
And those who are not mindful of the depth of
My perception will remain forever on the wheel.

I speak the sacred words~ the unutterable~
Heard only by those who have remained constant
And vigilant throughout the tests of time.

I am held tightly within the womb of the Great Mother
And stand as witness at humanity’s rebirth.

The final mystery is revealed and mind and heart shall be one.

A Time of Grace

Think now on the concepts of Father Time and Mother Creatrix. Parents, if you will who are responsible for creating the proper environment for their creations to thrive, grow and experience life’s lessons. If done well, this is a process of knowing when to tighten up and when to leave more room for exploration, also implying falls, cuts, bruises, joys and sorrows. What emerges from these periodic spurts is a newly refined creation, that has the weight of past experience now ready to inform the choices made in the present and moving into the future.

So, I have accepted Saturn’s return as an opportunity to shed the outworn excuses, fumbles and missteps and carry forward the timeliness of seeing myself as one who has with grace and intention navigated all the changes life has gifted me.

Full Moon in Aries
10:50pm (EDT)

Total Lunar Eclipse

The energy has been building exponentially- retrogrades, lunar cycles and eclipses have been dancing the celestial dance and now the time for breaking through is at hand.

The Moon waxes Full late tomorrow evening in the astrological sign of Aries. Aries is Fire, new beginnings (the first sign of the astrological wheel), unbridled enthusiasm and just the injection needed to pull us out of the heaviness we’ve been experiencing. Now, that is not to say that there are not still challenging times ahead, but consider this Full moon an opportunity to reset and realign. The astrological sign of Aries is noted as the “baby” of the zodiac. I prefer to think of its energy more that of the child. Children are naturally enthusiastic and see no limits to what they believe they can accomplish. Children trust what is around them, giving unconditionally and embracing every new experience. That is until, they are taught fear, caution, mistrust and begin the process of creating blocks. This full Moon brings an opportunity to reset to that space of openness and receptivity, expecting only the best as a future outcome.

The Total Lunar Eclipse

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon phases Full as the Sun – Earth and Moon line up; with the Moon passing through the Earth’s shadow. Spiritually, this energy can be considered as an opportunity of centering (our Earthly form) and opening to the strengthening of Solar Will (Sun) and the enlivened shadow of the Lunar Flow (Moon) of our Emotional self.

Other Allies:

The Moon in Aries provides a fresh perspective when engaging the emotional landscape that is revealed in the fullness of Lady Moon. The planet Mercury recently stationed retrograde, as is Uranus and Neptune as well. Remember that Sun-Earth and Moon dynamic that is occurring during the eclipse? We have Fire – Earth – and Water at play. Retrogrades provide an intensity of focus of the energy of that planet. Mercury is retrograde in Libra (Air) – Uranus is retrograde in Aries (Fire) – and Neptune is retrograde in Pisces (Water).

During this super-moon the dance is a trio of Fire- Earth and Water, action/will partnering within the foundational and human experience that is expressed so beautifully through our emotions, desires and compassion.

The Sun and Retrograde Mercury recently transited into the Airy sign of Libra. Taking that into consideration, we have all four of the alchemical elements represented during this dynamic Full Moon and Lunar eclipse. The bountiful gifts of each Full Moon are punctuated by the relationships and interactions in a dance of emotional empowerment and active will. The gifts of this Moon are those of great expectations and excitement about all that lay ahead as we begin anew the inner dialogue (Mercury-communication) of  alignment (much like the alignment of sun-earth and moon in the eclipse) of Mind (Air-Sun/Mercury)- Heart (Moon/Neptune) – the Fire of Action and Will (Uranus) and Body (Earth).

Blessings of this Moon of grace and light…

Back to the Middle and Around Again: Pluto Direct

Posted in Astrology, Auspicious Days, Magick, Pluto, Retrogrades, The Temple of Pluto with tags , , , , on September 24, 2015 by themagickalpen

26048712_sPluto Stations Direct
September 25
2:55am (EDT)

Distant planet Pluto stations direct early tomorrow morning moving from its intensity of retrograde that began back in April of this year. Astrologically, this planet of mystery and depth remains in the Earthy and Cardinal sign of Capricorn. Capricorn is known as the “Sea-Goat” which speaks to its energy of navigating both the heights and depths of experience with sure-footedness and a very grounded demeanor. At times, this grounded predisposition leads to inactivity as just the precise placement of action is sought; a pursuit which is not always readily attained. So, with this caution applied to Pluto, the planet of regeneration, death, crossings and those far away and unknown experiences, you may have felt stuck in the same holding pattern of expression and the replaying of the same life’s lessons.

Astrologically, the planet Pluto rules the sign of Scorpio. Much like the ability of Capricorn’s Sea-Goat to reach deep into the emotional depths and rise to the mental heights, Scorpio is equally at home hidden in the earth(Scorpion), soaring for greater perspective (Eagle) and ascending within the Fires of Rebirth as the Phoenix. In this retrograde, Pluto’s shape-shifting is directed towards what is built as foundation (Capricorn) rather than intent upon reshaping the emotional selves. And, just as the Phoenix is the higher expression of emotion transformed into useable and regenerative desire, the goal of higher form here is one of knowledge of the truly Divine nature of our humanity held within the vessel of human form and experience.

I have always felt Pluto to be the point of return, that holds the patterns of all time. We cross the threshold of death (or release) carrying with us the lessons we have learned from experiencing that life. We enter into the unknown, hoping that we will return born anew and transformed through the gift of regeneration. We circle back, so to speak to what was our past, that has now begun our future as we stand in the present of our making. Pluto offers the gift of being able to simultaneously draw from our past, as we use the present action to weave the future that occurs seconds later.

The energy of this retrograde has been a drilling down deeply into the stores of what and who we are as manifest life forms. Think of drilling deeply into the earth, churning up soil, rock and more. Each layer being displaced in the uprising of this energy as the past story of each layer is revealed in present time. What is excavated dictates the response and reaction that will determine what the future steps will be.

Feeding into this revealing of sorts have been the counterpoints of Uranus (July 26) and Neptune (June 12) also being Retrograde. This gave the impetus of Fire (Uranus in Aries)- Water (Neptune in its Ruling sign of Pisces) and Earth (Pluto in Capricorn) weaving their magick of big and lasting change. Think the liquid flow of lava deep within the Earth’s core. I will be writing more about this over the weekend.

Now,as Pluto begins its cycle of return back to the mid-point of a present and processing state Mercury recently stationed Retrograde. This is the opportunity to slow down, unplug (from technology) and really listen to what your messenger self has to communicate about your experience of Pluto’s renewal. Take the time to carefully and thoughtfully review what contracts have been made during this Pluto retrograde at the level of Spirit and your place in the limitless flow of life, energy and intention brought into manifest form – namely you.

Take your time and assess your best vantage point to reach back to retrieve what of your past (lives) will inform this present form. Then, and only then move forward, each step with the sure-footedness of the (sea)Goat as you scale the mountain of the aspirations of your future being.

A Little Visualization:

Take some time looking at the picture I selected to accompany this post. Imagine the spinning of this top and its perfect point of balance as the cycle and flow of top and bottom move just so within the energy surrounding it. Each tip narrowing down(or up) to a thin and perfectly shaped point. If in perfect alignment it does not matter which end you begin the motion from, there are equal in their support of the center mass. This central point the place of flattening and leveling out providing enough circular surface to neither under or over tip. The top spins and simultaneously and seamlessly the energy of the top and bottom points spirals inward meeting centrally and providing the correct amount of tension for the center to spin, cutting through and creating its own vibration of energy rippling outwards, moving through time and space.

Now envision yourself as this top. The points of balance on either end, interchangeable and recyclable as past and future. Both points drawing inward to support the mass of your present experience. All simultaneously moving as one, yet distinctly apart. All shaping and reforming the energy that surrounds and is within you.
