Full Moon in Leo
7:33p.m. (EST)

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
5:34p.m. (EST)

Sun in Aquarius

Tomorrow evening the Moon waxes full in the astrological sign of Leo. We remain in the solar month of Aquarius and the earth will cast its shadow on the Moon in the first eclipse of 2017. This auspicious event is considered a penumbral eclipse which occurs when the outer (or penumbral) shadow of the Earth blocks part but not all of the Sun’s rays from reaching the Moon. And, in terms of the cosmic line-up, Earth stands midpoint as the Moon travels behind and the Sun is in front.

Apart from the astronomical/astrological import, the spiritual nature and metaphysical overlays of these archetypal energies can be accessed most effectively in aligning Strength and Will to Action (Sun) – Manifest Form (Earth) – and, Intuitive Flexibility (Moon). If we take this approach to the work at hand, we become the midpoint as earthy representative and call into ourselves the polarized aspects of Father(Sun) and Mother (Moon); Aquarius (Air/Mind and Vision) and Leo (Fire/Will and Guardianship).

If we choose to be the central conduit for these palpable energies, we are making conscious decision to open to the strength we have as human/manifest which is very much earth like in our composition and to take in waters of healing that are heated from a fire that burns brightly and magnetically. This is the Leo Moon heating the waters that lay without creative catalyzing and although healing and intuitive sight may arise, the process lacks the flame of spark that will set the waters in agitation (think boiling water) and make ready the space for new life to begin. And, for many of us, given the start of this 2017 year and the uncertainty and imposing change that is at each turn, claiming our place as catalyzers of birthing waters that are heated by the fierce and protective action of Leo’s will is a good place to begin the work of standing strong.

The Solar impetus to be  received is that of broad vision and electrical charge that moves at the speed of  cosmic light; inspiring and informing all that lay in its path. This is a Sun that strengthens and lights up the neurons and neurological pathways that produce the blueprint and ideologies of pure thought. Aquarius occupies its intention with the greater good for all, and although the individual is frequently left out of the equation, the outcome is one of future potential. Having reached the mid-point of a Solar month in a sign of inspired vision is a gift of clarity. Being able to synthesize and stabilize (this is the action of the Fixed signs) our will towards Highest Expression while being mindful of the impact for all concerned, amps up the charge of what we are compelled towards, rather than what we randomly are agitated and unproductively stimulated by.

We also have the additional and rare event of Comet 45p coming very near to earth. Icy particles, gasses and dust comprising the stuff of the solar system light the sky as trails of what is burnt off are dispersed throughout. This is the lesson of action requiring disruption and the necessary fall-out that may occur as a by-product as the path is pursued and the course is scripted whatever it “will be”.

Jupiter is Retrograde

Adding some expansive energy to the cosmic recipe,  the planet, Jupiter stationed retrograde on the 5/6th of this month.  Jupiter is wearing the mantle of Cardinal Air, Libra, so the nature of this expansive introspection is one of seeking refinement of what is balanced and harmonious. The mental aspect of this energy will play out in the areas of what you “perceive” to be in balance with what is reality and where you draw inspiration to cull away what is not in accord.

Jupiter gives pause to allow us to inhale the dynamic energies of Sun and Moon. Think of an hourglass. Each end is expansive in fanning out as base for whatever comes into it. But at the center point all is contracted and narrowed to allow the precise amount of flow in a timely fashion that is regulated by the diameter of opening. What we pull in from our outer experience/world is filtered/regulated by the space of receptivity we allow and what passes through is breathed out to fill all that is (the widened base of) our inner state of being. Jupiter is both the ebb and the flow; and in the astrological sign of Cardinal (initializing energy) Libra, each is important for a specific outcome; and each will ultimately be lesser and/or more on the scales in accord to what is needed for the most refined product. The goal being one of organized existence that can flex and expand regardless of the extent of chaos that naturally exerts its force.

Receptive Ground
The opportunity at this lunation is one of becoming the receptive ground that coalesces and anchors into itself the lights of Higher Purpose (Solar Aquarius) and Healing Quickening (Lunar Leo). And, from the fixed (and focused) nature of Mind and Will, manifest form aligns with awareness that stewardship and the power of our planet is also the measure of our Great Work of stewardship and the power of our corporeal form.

New Moon in Aquarius: Build the Vision of What Could Be!

New Moon in Aquarius
7:07p.m. (EST)

Sun in Aquarius

The last post, Scry Deeply For Your Vision of Change, issued a call to reaching into those deep waters of self to explore who you are and what your core beliefs and philosophies reflect. And, now 8 days later, the Moon begins Her phase of new journey, potential and HOPE in the astrological sign of Aquarius. The work that was claimed and shed during that 4th Quarter phase on the 19th is ready for the quickening of its energy as we enter the dynamics of an Aquarius Moon and Sun opening the Gates to what an inspired mind can produce.

The Moon transits New this evening in the astrological sign of Aquarius. Aquarius is sign of elemental Air and Fixed (synthesis to create a stable foundation from which to draw) modality. With its placement as the 11th sign (of 12) on the Zodiacal Wheel there is a sense of cumulative understanding that has progressed from the first thoughts of Gemini’s agility and ease with communication (Mutable:flexible and expansive Mind:air) and found its refined and balanced expression in Libra (Cardinal:catalytic new beginnings of Seed Thought:air). Libra is the space of awareness of what new products may be created from the inpouring of Gemini’s mental explorations. Aquarius being the last and 3rd of the Air (mind and communication) infused signs takes from its predecessors and gathers all of the extraneous information and varied styles of communication as the blueprint to be created for a vision that will electrify and propel all who can understand the nuances and complexities of that vision into the future carried on the breath of change. Think of the change and potential for new creations that occurred with the realization of electricity as an alternative source to the limitations of candle light.

This electrical capacity is driven by its ruling planet, Uranus- the higher amplification of Mercury. We all know of Mercury’s mysteries and the infamous retrograde where communication slows and/or stalls and misunderstanding abounds. Now envision that communication and deftness of ease in moving from topic to topic and upgrade it to lightspeed. Or, in other words, Mercury is the beautiful letter that arrives several days later via mail courier and Uranus is the text that is instantaneous and can reach across the seas! This also means that when we call upon Uranus to inspire and inform the work of synthesis that Aquarius exerts on all matters of the mind, intellect, communication and flow of exchange – the result is a think tank that can envision all sides of a possibility and spit out at will a suitable outcome in half the time, to boot!

Unfortunately, most of this is done using logic and the tendency is to neglect the human equation in the formula. Pure thought can be a beautiful tool for building the constructs of what could be and if that construct is infused with the nurturing of a heart based action, the vision becomes one that can be built upon grace as what is devised in the realm of air takes form in the manifest world. This is also the pivotal point of trust. Trust that what is abstract can be applied in practical fashion to the benefit of All, not just a few. Fear feeds into this lack of trust, as the mind can derail the most heartfelt plans when over analysis and withdrawal into the imagined rather than what is possible become a distraction.

And, perhaps the greatest fear is that of success. Of being able to breathe life into what you envision and then ultimately also being responsible for its care and feeding to sustain that breath. Using the energy of Uranus as a means of keeping that electricity flowing pulls from a cosmic source that has no fear and is ripe and full with the potential of new action.

This New Moon can begin to turn the tides of what you fear into what you will create for yourself, and ultimately, each in turn  who claim that power of self-directed change add to the collective spirit of what can be built for all. Aquarius is the breath of innovation and solution. It can then communicate that solution in a way that reaches into the networking of energy that we are all part of. The right mindset that flashes on that neon billboard can’t help but be noticed and what results from that display of light and expression is like attracting like, one inspired action, one inspired thought, one inspired place of new beginning-at a time.

Claiming Your Power

The day after this New Moon, and still in its aura of waxing, the planet Mars transits into Aries, its ruling astrological sign. Mars is raw energy and action, which is why it often gets the negative reputation of aggression and war like posturing. Yes, I used the word posturing, because in many cases, this rebellious and war like sign is a facade for misdirected enthusiasm and the inability to remain still. Aries, being the youth and first sign of the zodiac is aptly served by Mars. Think about the boundless energy that a child has. And, sometimes that over-the-top excitement causes havoc and stirs up the emotions in the parent who has to be the one in charge. But if guided well, that Mars like energy can strengthen that child’s resolve in working hard towards their goals and facing challenges head on.

As we continue to build that vision of what could be and we anchor into the power of Mars in its most natural state of being, we can tap into an unending supply of determination and determined-action that will break down some of the feelings of powerlessness we may have.

Use this New Moon to craft a dynamic blueprint of how you will move through the year ahead. Be as the place of synthesized inspiration, drawing into yourself what you know of yourself to be your strengths and honoring those places of weakness that you perceive. Let the vision unfold, pixel by pixel, as you allow the inspired spark of electrified wisdom stabilize the vision of what can be. Draw from that spark the fires of asserting yourself fueled by a vision that is not diminished by the challenges that will unfold as the vision grows and gains in might. And, with each breath taken allow yourself to be open to the bigger picture of you as a singular yet unique and vital piece of a much larger community that together can build the vision of what will be…

A Ritual Pathworking to Sustain

On Saturday Afternoon I will be posting a Ritual Pathworking that corresponds to a very special ritual our coven will be doing live on Sunday- Lighting Our Torches! All Hail, Columbia! You may use this as a resource of continued working as we move through the remainder of Solar Aquarius and greet the charismatic heat of the Full Moon in Leo and a Lunar Eclipse on February 10th.

Scry Deeply For Your Vision of Change! Inauguration Day2017

Posted in Auspicious Days, Solar, Uranus on January 19, 2017 by themagickalpen

January 19.2017
Sun in Aquarius
4:24p.m. (EST)

4th Qrt. Waning Moon in Scorpio
5:09p.m.(EST)

Today marks the eve of Inauguration Day. A day that has had a build up of a contentious campaign, questionable election and uncertainty about what this new presidency will bring. Change is inevitable, but the change that is upon us requires that each of us give clarity and possibly re-definition to our beliefs, allegiances, actions and ultimately what our contribution will be in the years to come.

And, so with these thoughts in mind, this post is not a political commentary; but, is instead, a reminder of the tools we can access to to help those steps of personal definition come to light.

Sun in Aquarius

For many, we entered this New Year carrying more trepidation about how those things we hold near and dear would be honored and sustained than in year’s past. The Sun was strong in Capricornian energy, lending the gifts of sure-footedness and foundation. And, if called upon, where there could have been hesitation in moving forward, there was in its place alignment with the strength of manifest reality to reshape our perceptions of the change we could effect. Hopefully, we made use of some pieces of this energy to bolster our confidence in forging ahead and even though there may have been some slips and faltering, a stronger sense of who we are and what we claim as our truths emerged.

This afternoon, as we leave the legacy of this Cardinal(impetus) Earth (manifestation), we open ourselves to the (stabilizing) Fixed quality of mindful Aquarius (Air). I am purposefully using the word “mindful” here, as that is a state of attention that is absolutely needed now, more than ever. Mind-ful(l) of our actions; Mind-ful(l) of where we place our energies towards effective and palpable change; Mind-ful(l) of who we are in the grander scheme of the world-not just locally, but also globally as citizen’s of the world. Aquarius can assist with this mind-opening expression as it draws together all that has come before and projects easily into what the potential outcome may be as it synthesizes and calls it all into the inspired mind of the present. This new solar month is ripe with opportunity to see the bigger picture and through our individual actions project that image outward. Aquarians are known for their innovative, albeit, quirky viewpoint and although everything is not viable in the moment, their is often enough to stimulate in those around them a brainstorming of creative solutions.

Additionally, Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus. Uranian energy is electrical (fire = neurological impulse) in application;being a higher amplification of Mercury’s communication expertise and agility. Think about this energy in this way – the difference in posting a letter (Mercury) vs. email (Uranus). Both reach the intended destination; one eventually, the other immediately. Uranus is currently in the astrological sign of Aries- Cardinal (Initiating) Fire (action/will). Doubly amped up and ready to communicate each inspired thought to the whole of your being. Each cell receiving the impulse of what you wish to claim as your own via release or refinement a little further.

Moon in Scorpio…

Scorpio loves its secrets and goes to great lengths to keep them exactly that-secret. Making use of this desire to not expose too much (prematurely) of your inner plans and workings can be used productively as the stages of your own transformation unfold, quietly and without the distractive input and commentary on how you are proceeding. When the time is right, these transformation will no longer be held in secret as they arise from a new state of being that has honed and settled in more deeply to what runs below the surface and gives nuance to what is chosen to be out-pictured. The Phoenix is used as one of the symbols for this sign and what arises from the ashes of what you relinquish rises to even grander heights in the flaming action, truth and will that it displays. The 4th Quarter Waning Moon is the time of pruning and culling what no longer serves us. Go with the flow of release that the Moon’s tides offer, carrying out to those deep oceans what must seek a new home.

The Scorpio Moon lends itself well to deeper exploration of who we are. Not at the level of who we project ourselves to be, but truly and unabashedly who we are, imperfections and beauties that are only revealed when we no longer feel vulnerable, judged or pressured to be someone else. As we move through the months/years ahead in a tense political environment the stuff that we are made of will be tested time and time again. What we choose to show in that testing is entirely of our own making. How we chose to respond will be guided by the self-reflection we have imposed on ourselves. There is a saying….

“What does not break us, makes us stronger”.. and I would add to that “only, if you Know Thyself”

Use this year and this Solar Month to get to know the deepest core of what is important to you. Be honest about all of the tiny lines of stress fracture that if given too much pressure (without being bolstered and repaired) will chip away at your beliefs and your confidence to effect change. Be ruthless in what you chose to break apart that holds you inert and the glamor of their reality keeps your truth from being revealed. Know yourself well enough to know when you are simply spinning your heels and getting caught up in other people’s emotions and as the Scorpion, know when the time to strike will be most productive in making your presence known. An excellent way to begin (or continue) this process is to use the power of reflection and the ancient technique of scrying.

Scry Deeply…

Scrying is an ancient technique used to obtain hidden(occult) information. The common method was to use a reflective surface such as water or a mirror; form the intention/inquiry; open the mind and heart and give note to images or symbols that appear on the surface of what you are gazing upon. you could also think of this as an exercise in meditative quality-quieting the mind, closing the eyes and allowing the scene(s) of peace, inquiry or devotion to play out as you sat as observer of your inner screen.

The power of the Moon and its watery intuitive stimulation and the astrological sign of Scorpio (Fixed Water) help to coalesce what we call as answer into the stilled waters of insightful reflection.

What is your vision of change? Where do you fit into the equation? Who will you stand with? And, WHY?

Blessings of this auspicious day….

Full Moon in Gemini-Keep It Simple and Speak the Truth

Full Moon in Gemini
7:05p.m. (EST)

Sun in Sagittarius

The Moon waxes Full this evening in the astrological sign of Gemini. This is energy that is Mutable, aka: flexible and flowing from endings to beginnings. Both Sun and Moon are in Mutable signs, the Sun now peaking into its later energies of Sagittarius. This is the gift of Air (Gemini) fanning the fires of action and outreach (Sagittarius). The mutable component offers the choice of how that flexibility is expressed. Will you seek the application of too much air which extinguishes the creative flame established or just enough which continually fuels the flame as it grows exponentially?

Gemini’s gift is communication in all of its forms. It is mind having the ability to take the next steps informed by the experience of interaction and conversing and then being able to “turn on a dime” guiding that conversation in a completely opposite direction. Mother Moon boasts emotions reserves and when the waters begin to move in agitation the conversation becomes louder as the waterfall flows in strong descent disrupting all that lay beneath.

Keep it Simple…

In general, the Full Moon is a time when Moon and Sun stand in opposition (or directly opposite one another) on the Great Astrological wheel. This is a point of tension that can be used advantageously as each dynamic is pulled more towards the precise blending of what is needed for any given situation. Gemini loves to inform and moves quickly from information to information, sampling all, but often not internalizing or synthesizing any one thing. Sagittarius takes careful aim at what it choses to set afire and stretches to the limits (think the archer’s bow, symbol of Sag) fueled by its passion and desire to spread the action around. So, here with have both the ability to communicate and inform, and have that synthesized thought flexed and stretched as it is released from an anchored bow with precise aim and highest intention of will.

As much as you may wish to express yourself to the fullest extent, presenting all sides of every debatable issue, keep it simple. Offer the breath of pause so that clarity can flow from words uttered having had time to gather the necessary information. Breathe into what the next outpouring of mind will bring and draw the bow string of Sagittarius’ will back into the deep waters of heart-filled truth.

Speak Your Truth…

As heart (Moon) and mind (airy Gemini) weave intimately the product of creation is one of formulating those truths that you may claim as your own. Let Father Sun and the Sagittarian desire to expand its dynamic will to action fuel those truths sending them out on arrows of impact and precision in goal.

The turbulence of these past few months (a singular culmination of stressful build up) now requires us to be fully present and cognizant of how we express ourselves in the larger world. If cultivated in a mindful way informed by what we feel having also taken the time to examine all sides of the equation, these truths become “words to live by”.

This is an excellent time to re-evaluate and settle in more deeply to what we hold as the beliefs true for ourselves and the ideals we hold for those in our lives. Moreover, now is also the time to forge communication between what we feel to be true and what we know if the truth. These are extraordinarily simple steps to take, but in that simplicity is the complexity of remaining fully present in the healing waters that we have chosen to quicken by the fires of our core beliefs.

This is the fullness of Mother Moon in Geminian communication with all parts of self; ready and emboldened as the light of Father Sun offers the gates of new beginnings as the ground of seeding.

May this Moon find you blessed…

New Moon in Sagittarius
7:18a.m. (EST)

Sun in Sagittarius

There are times when we feel powerless in affecting change in the way that we would wish. Times that are particularly difficult to navigate and the anticipation of what the future will bring is colored by doubt and fear. We push and strain to let our voices be heard and in the best of it, we step more fully into our power. In the worst, we feel that all of our efforts have been a shot in the dark. Each strike sent out from a tense bow of frustration and an exaggerated aim that often overreaches the goal we loosely had in mind.

These are the times we are facing now, with recent political events looming large and ominous in the United States and global affairs precarious in their awaiting the outcome of the collective mind of the USA and alliances that had been made. So, how do we make use of this New Moon in collectively minded Sagittarius and a Solar boost to this astrological Fire that is Mutable; which means flexibility and adaptability. This is also a Fire of will to action that expands and contracts as thresholds of endings and beginnings test the boundaries of where that action is directed and how willful we are in burning through it.

These are also the fires of newly ignited flames; in other words there is the potential for the fire to completely go out if it is not fed carefully and appropriately with skillful attention to placement of breath/air and intention.

We are nearing the end of November and with the advent and waxing of Mother Moon into December, how we feed and tend those Fires now will go a long way in support of December’s Solar transition into foundational Capricorn and the Winter Solstice. We will have passed the full moon by the time the solstice occurs but those last and most mature energies of Solar Sagittarius hold the spark that will ignite as those fiery arrows that were launched in the light of Solar Sagittarius gain ground in earthy Capricorn.

A Shot in the Dark

120924_005700

My proposal to you is one of cultivating patience and discernment and shoring up your arrows of connectivity; trusting that intention will guide the way. This means spending some time reflecting and truly thinking through where you wish to send out your fires of action. Where will they take root and what will become wasted energy and effort at a time when clarity and precision in picking the right battles to burn through is at an all time high.

Just as the archer of the Sagittarian symbology requires skill and practice to insure that each arrow hits the intended mark, this is a proposal that has no expiration date on honing and refining its many moving parts. What we need is a plan and plans take time and more importantly those who are knowledgeable in their skill set to make lasting change.

One arrow of hope -aka.one intention released of action that has been fueled by a will that has scanned the best and most direct route for impact- can become the one that ignites a larger path to action that is palpable in its effect and brings about growth that rises from the ashes stronger and more dynamic than what had been planned.

I encourage you to use the energy of this New Moon productively letting the light of your intentions to begin the process of connecting with others of similar philosophy and belief. Release an arrow of understanding that you may gain deeper awareness of who and what the issues are, seeing them from both perspectives. You know there is the saying that one keeps their friends close and their enemies closer. Send out an arrow of clarity so that your actions will carry the most weight in leaving footprints that are easy for others to follow on the path towards right action.

Release an arrow of love and respect, that remains tethered to you as it seeks its mark. This is the arrow of reciprocity. One that requires you respect yourself enough that you will not allow the same type of narrow mindedness to rule your actions as that which you are condemning. Love is a powerful ally and although all cannot be easily diffused or transformed by love, the action, intention and efforts towards remaining this space, especially when challenges are at peak, strengthens your own convictions and place of right action.

Think of these arrows that you send forth his New Moon as the first strikes of the match that craft the fires of Illumination, Healing and Cleansing. And, once this Fire is collectively lit, nothing can extinguish what arises from its flames.

I’ve recorded a special Pathworking for this New Moon to begin the process of right action and focused intent. Enjoy…

The Bull Stands Strong as the Eagle Flies

Full Moon in Taurus

8:52a.m. (EST)

Sun in Scorpio

“THE BIGGEST FULL MOON IN ALMOST 70 YEARS: On Monday, Nov. 14th, there’s going to be a full Moon–the biggest and brightest in almost 70 years. The best time to look in North America is before sunrise on Monday morning, while in Europe the best time is after sunset on the same day.

“The last time we had such a close full Moon was January 26, 1948,” says Geoff Chester of the US Naval Observatory, “and it won’t happen again until November 25, 2034.”


Photo Credit: Piotr Majewski

Full moons vary in size because the Moon’s orbit is not a circle, it’s an ellipse. One side of the Moon’s orbit, called “perigee,” is 50,000 km closer to Earth than the other side, “apogee.” This Monday’s “supermoon” becomes full about 2 hours away from perigee, a coincidence that makes it as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser moons we have seen in the past.” (excerpt from: spaceweather.com)

The moon waxes full in the astrological sign of Taurus this morning. Taurus is a Fixed (stability and synthesis) sign and is of the element of Earth; and much like its symbol, the Bull, Taurus holds strong and steady in its presence.

It is fitting that this moon occurs after one of the most divisive and contentious elections the USA has experienced and that strong, stalwart and stubborn anchoring in what each believes to be the right way reached its peak, with surprising results at all levels. Now, the question is whether the Bull in the proverbial china shop will destroy all the refinements and baeuty that has been carefully created from years of struggle and adversity or whether the anchoring will take the form of all participants rooting into what their personal core values truly are, stripped of peer pressure and old beliefs that no longer serve. This is a fullness that tests  just how willing each will be to stand in the strength of what protects and safe guards for the highest good of all members of the herd.

Additionally, this anchoring is focused within the emotional and intuitive landscape that Mother Moon guides. Our emotions are being brought to full light and how we feel about our place in the manifest world. The ideals, philosophies and beliefs we have manifested as our own truth will either become a place of inert stubborness or move with a weighty presence that is a force not to be reckoned with. The caution is one of rigidity that becomes a barrier of aggression, rage and hate that fuels the exact negativity that is being fought against. Moving with purpose and deliberation keeps the emotions open and flexible enough that the creation of new expressions of right action and just cause can  evolve from a space of wisdom and intelligence of a heart that is aligned with higher purpose.

Additionally, we are nearing the end of the solar month of Scorpio and its energy of hidden reserves of insight and depths of knowing supports the manifestation of a new way of allowing your passions and desires to arise from the depths of who you know yourself to be and join with the earthiness and fecundity of Taurean energy to produce action that has both substance and intuitive strength. This is the Bull(Taurus) that stands its ground as the Eagle (Scorpio) flies high above, liberated from the Scorpion’s (also Scorpio) dark abode of random retaliation and is now able to see with clarity and accuracy which injustice will become its prey.

Action in the Aftermath

I have chosen this date and energy to provide the solid ground to launch a FB community page entitled Action in the Aftermath . The intention is one of offering the space of hope and productive action that is both informed and selective in where it stands its ground and engaging those emotions (which fuel the desire to manuifest) can be justly called upon for the highest good of all.

And, so I call to the strength and awareness of manifest and physical form. The Bull, that guards and protects and holds strongly anchored in who and what it is. Taurus is also the sign of one of the Four Holy Creatures, the Winged Bull and the energy of allowing what is steeped in instinctual and physical response to become a creature of elevated form and nature. This is the aspiration of what is driven by the desire to survive that lifts that desire to the space of manifesting and individual who is instinctually attuned to the Divine and moves in accord with a higher purpose.

I call to the three levels of Scorpio’s wisdom. I call to the Scorpion; no longer content to remain hidden in the dark and great below, whose only recourse is retaliatory and random strikes of pain and suffering. I will rise high above, soaring on the wings of the Eagle; able to see all that lays below as the potential to sustain and nourish knowing that I have come to this place of great in-sight because of the lessons learned in hiding below. And, in this trinity and with the support of the Bull’s anchored presence, I call to the Phoenix and its gift of rendering to ash what does not survive a greater whole and arise transformed.

Blessings of this Full Moon and stand strong and united in purpose for the highest good for all.
