The Measured Grace of Ma’at: New Moon in Libra

Posted in Uncategorized on September 18, 2020 by themagickalpen

September 17.2020

About the Ritual:

The Moon waxes New in Astrological Libra, flowing from the grace of Virgo’s detail. This ritual will call to the intention of Virgo’s Sun and Libra’s New Moon as the measure of detail required to achieve change. Libra’s balance and intention will flow as the gift of Ma’at -order and creation – becomes the recipient and harmonious energy carried forward. The Equinox and station of the Sun in Libra follow a few days later and the work of this New Moon will ensure an equinox of power.

Time to See the Big Picture:Full Moon in Aquarius

Posted in Uncategorized on August 2, 2020 by themagickalpen

The Moon waxes full in the electric sign of Aquarius tomorrow late morning. The atmosphere is filled with tiny charged particles of an electric stimulant that typifies the Aquarian thought process. The ruling planet of this airy sign is Uranus, whose impact moves full force with a strong pulsing current that provokes radical change and heightens the neurological system as it prods the entirety of the being to evolve.

Time is moving swiftly, although each day feels as though it goes on forever in the wake of COVID-19, financial concerns, political fires and a general state of unrest and uncertainty. We want things to return to “normal”-whatever that means to each of us, and straining at the bit to make it so, now! Unfortunately, time has its own accord of movement and the status we are calling the “quo” is slow to have final resolution. Now, e are being called to reflect and create a new “normal”, see through the illusion and practice discernment in all areas of our ives.

The Sun is in astrological Leo. Leo ad Aquarius are noted as being in opposition ( a natural occurrence during a Full Moon phase) because they share a line on opposite sides of the astrological wheel. I don’t perceive these as opposing forces. The bombastic and in your face nature of Leo, forcing you to take notice and the expression of communication (an air thing) that Aquarius commands are necessary components to accomplish great things, with visionary experience (Aquarius) and share in a dynamic way (Leo) with others. The flow of energy from Solar and fiery Leo and Airy and communicative Aquarius allows for each to dip into the gifts of the other and coalesce as a viable and dynamic expression.

Aquarian energy is all about what “can be”. It is dynamic, does not pause for a misplaced beat and allows the space for a vision of future potential and outcomes. Movement is a key word, as is thoughtful process given to every endeavor, action, emotion and of course, thought. Trust is another key word. This, however is not the semantic of trust implying unquestioning loyalty. Rather this is a trust cultivated through trial and error, surrender to your own truths and stepping into your mantle of creative power, regardless of the outcome. Trust is cultivated when we allow ourself the grace of making mistakes, getting back up and replaying the scene with all eyes on what and where the error occurred.

When we approach life in this way, we begin to see the bigger picture. We begin to trust that challenges are not obstacles that impeded our growth. We begin to see beyond the challenges and envision what the outcome can be when we trust the process and our discernment.

Add to this Full Moon three (3) potent retrograde planets-Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. Jupiter provides the opportunity to breathe into opening the lens of the aperture wider to see the bigger picture. This is the natural flow of physical breath-contraction and expansion as air fills the body and is exhaled. Saturn calls us to greater structure, compelling us to step through the gates of time and our choices made and emerge stronger, wiser and more fully present. Saturn is the secondary ruler of Aquarius and it is this energy that allows Aquarius to refine in such a precise way. And, Pluto pulls us into the cycle of past-present and future, death and rebirth. Pluto is the unknown, the fear of what lay beyond. Trust requires that fear of the unknown be put aside and acceptance that there is a natural order and cycle to all things. We move into this cycle and the limits of time are broken in the realization that past-present and future are continually evolving simultaneously and as such we have access to all that we need to see the reality of the bigger picture and truth of our existence.

So, what does this all mean? This Full Moon is an opportunity to break free of what limits you. To fully envision the life you wish to have manifest. To lay down the blueprint that will call you to action. To align your mind with the knowledge of your own power and control over your life. To claim the mantle of your humanity and to hold true to the vision of your truth.

Full Moon in Capricorn

Posted in Uncategorized on July 3, 2020 by themagickalpen

July 5.2020 12:44am (EDT)

The Moon is Full in astrological Capricorn this month and the work we are called to involves all that is manifest, of a physical nature and provides the foundations from which we grow, move and learn to trust in ourselves.

Capricorn is of the Earth element and of a Cardinal modality. These are the qualities that provide Capricorn with the ability to remain steady and sure of its footing – the Sea Goat- but only if we allow ourselves to keep moving. The detriment is not having belief and confidence in your abilities, despite organically being graced with the ability to navigate the heights and swim the depths. This can make for a very slow moving journey-much like 2 steps forward, 4 steps back.

The key here is to trust in your “physicality”. To trust in the many gifts of physical and corporeal nature and to step confidently without continually looking down.

These are certainly challenging times and how we navigate them is largely dependent on how assured we feel that we are safe, cared for/about and are not lacking in our manifest needs. Take the opportunity at this full moon to call in all of the manifest debts owed to yourself. All of the resources of endurance and health and prosperity. And, then allow them to be infused with the strength of Capricorn’s scaffolding and the openness of a full heart to receive this strength-in perfect love and perfect trust.

Blessings of the Full Moon and be sure to check out the 5-Minute Full Moon video.

Full Moon in Sagittarius

Mother Moon waxes Full in the astrological sign of Sagittarius, a sign of Mutable modality. The quality of the mutable nature is one of expansion and contraction, allowing for each increment of reaching outward to move slightly further than the previous effort. The image of Sagittarius is one of the archer. This exemplifies the ability of reach and expanse as the arrow is set, the aim is sited in and the release is one of controlled precision. If accurate in aim the target intended will be breached and the begins of a new connectivity will be out-pictured for exploration and action. Intention is everything, and even if the target hit is far amiss from what was hoped for, the effort of practice and setting into motion a method of reach is never wasted.

This month’s 5-Minute Full Moon calls to the work of connectivity and reach. It is the work of of synthesis of Gemini’s New Moon energy of communication and Sagittarius’ tools to achieve that connection……

Transcript of Runic Verse.....

Mother Moon
Full faced of Light
Holding Libra’s scales
Weighing the measure of night.
 
Heed my call
My devotion, my gift
That harmony prevails
Uncertainty set adrift.
 
Healing waters rising up
Renewed and filled with grace
Strength in your light
Pouring onto upturned face.
 
Breath flowing strongly
Opening clarity of mind
Healing all of Spirit
Divinely and lovingly refined.
 
Strength of Will to action
Resilient and bountiful
Body made whole and manifest
Cloaked in Mother’s soothing mantle.
 
Mother Moon comfort is offered
From your nurturing and gentle hand
In the blessing of your revealing
In your watery image collectively we stand.
 
Mother Moon, ruler of this night
Milky orb of my heart’s desire
On this night of unending devotion
Awaken the depths of my Spirit’s purifying fires.
 
In your likeness may I be renewed
In your power may I guide the way
In your light may I see my inner truths
And in gratitude and health may
I greet each day.
 
Mother Moon
Full faced of Light
The scales of balance sway
Held in my hand of knowing sight.

Full Moon in Pisces
August 26.2018

Sun in Virgo

Tomorrow the Moon waxes full….
Tomorrow the healing flows in grace….
But, Today your healing begins!

Lady Moon spreads her light and the waters of renewal reach deeply into cavernous spaces that have long lain barren. It has been a long and tiresome time leading up to this Full Moon. The intensity and power of retrogrades, eclipses and Solar power that has been un-relentless, has left many feeling raw, exposed, vulnerable and uncertain.

Neptune, the ruling planet of astrological Pisces remains as one of five currently retrograde planets and with this lunation of fullness provides a deeper level of healing that may be called upon. The Sun has just recently transited in astrological and earthy Virgo and its gift is one of a solar month of refining, assessing and accounting for everything that passes through the calculated energy of…

The Complexity of a Simple Question

New Moon in Gemini

and I’m feeling talkative…

The Magickal Pen


Just because today is a new Moon in Gemini, an astrological sign where words get tangled in the web of communication and expression, I am sharing a writing about something that I keep returning to, unsettled and anxious about the reply….

…..Where Are You Going?

Such a simple question for an answer that is deep and complex. If you’d asked me that question last year I would have said, “I’m moving forward. I’m making progress in my endeavors and I am spending my time and energy wisely.” Very articulate statement and optimistic answer. Seems to be a straightforward and simple answer, but nothing could be further from the complexity of truth.

If you’d asked me the same question three months ago, I would have paused in my response, turning my thoughts to what I had perceived as growth and progress as I weighed and measured the validity of those statements…

Electric Light-A Gift From the Eclipse, Today..

Posted in Uncategorized on August 21, 2017 by themagickalpen

Pictures and Inspiration from the Eclipse. Enjoy!

The Magickal Pen

Drexel Hill, PA
1:34 – 2:44 peak

Electric Light heated
By growing anticipation.

Cloud in sky becomes
The backdrop for dramatic
Celestial design.

My body stands ready
To receive the electromagnetic
Charge of completion.

I will not fuel my
Inner Sun for this
Is a time for holding
What is steady within.

Instead I will breathe
In a Light that as the
Heart passes will gather
To itself that which
Flares unproductively
In my solarscape.

I/We are children of
The Sun and Moon and
We move in the cyclical
Paths of heated waters.

Will and Action
Heart and Tides
Filling the cofers
Of our cosmic Soul.

Minutes pass and
The Light seemingly
Dims shrouded by
The shadow of its
Consorts veiling.

I am a daughter
Of the Sun and
I am a Priestess
Of the Moon.

I embrace the
Birthrite of
Their power
Filled Union.

And what has been
Hidden…

Celestial Tides: Days of Light, Dark and Balance

Posted in Uncategorized on July 12, 2017 by themagickalpen


Last night we began our journey through the astronomical year and deeper connection to the quarter points of Solstices and Equinoxes. This poem emerged from that intention. Enjoy…

Light strains to take hold
As darkness spreads her wings
Of Divine shroud.

Darkness seeks its mate
Of brilliant light
And both weave the
Dance of courtship and
Consummate Union.

Darkness lifts a wing ready to
Molt its downy blackness
And Light kisses one
Last time lips that seek the hermit’s solace.

Light coils within the shadows
Spiraling out and reaching
With tendrils of inky
Stain that becomes the
Beauty of a palette of
Misty grey.
