Happy Friday! I hope ya’ll have had a wonderful week abundant with joy, love, and success. If you’re like me, you may have begun feeling off yesterday which certain political events surely only deepened. My heart was so heavy yesterday that I found myself being overwhelmed with a sort of melancholy that I’ve never before felt. It was definitely weird!
This stuck with me and today when I drew the Card of the Day, I drew the Keeper of the Scales which was about a lack of balance within. Immediately I began to think of Ma’at who isn’t a Goddess I’ve actually ever worked with before so I knew She was attempting to contact me. Listen to the signs–that’s what I’ve been preaching! So I quickly researched Her in excitement and before long I was writing an invocation to Her for Harmony and Balance. I’ve never really written an invocation before so bear with me. This most definitely may be tweaked and enhanced for your own personal use. However, if you do decide to use it as is, please do credit me. 🙂
Quick Facts about Ma’at:
- Egyptian Goddess of Truth, Justice, Harmony, and Order
- Daughter of Ra through Heka (Magick) and Wife of Thoth
- Her most notable symbol is the Ostrich Feather which she wears in her hair–it’s the feather which our hearts our weighed against in the Hall of Judgement.
- She is usually depicted with wings.
- Only one temple was built for Her by Hatshepsut.
My Correspondences for Her: (I read some of these and agreed. Some were intuitive)
- Colors: Purple and Blue (some mention black as well, which I can sort of agree with)
- Symbols: Feather (especially Ostrich) and ankh
- Element: Air
- Tarot Card: Justice
- Crystals: Amethyst, Emerald, and Jade
- Scent: Aloe (Rose was also added but I’m unsure–that seems more Hathor too me)
**If you decide to invoke Her for Justice Spells, it’s always important to remember that you better be clean within that situation too as She doesn’t discriminate against who she deals Her justice against.**
Personally for this Invocation I would light a purple or blue candle and hold a piece of Amethyst. You can use any your guided to or exclude them.
I call to You, Lady Ma’at,
Daugther of Ra, Wife of Thoth.
She whose ostrich plume holds immense power
As it deems whether a heart is pure or not.
Balance and Harmony are Your conviction.
It is through You that we may reach such ideals,
As you permeate everything—all that is just and good.
I call upon you on this day
For help in balancing my inner self—my inner planes
So that I may be whole and healed.
I’ve allowed the outside world to much freedom
In regard to my emotions and peace.
I failed to shield myself. I acknowledge that.
I ask that You assist me in realigning myself with my Truth,
So that I may return to myself.
So that I may be complete.
You, who embody all that is just and balanced,
Come to me now so that I may too delight in you.
Allow me to share and revel in your order and harmony.
Allow me to be restored—
For the scales within to become equal,
So that I may continue forth in my fight against injustice,
So that I may aid You in this world, and with Your mission,
Of Truth, Justice, and Order.
So Shall It Be.

What’s your experience with Ma’at? Is She a Goddess you’ve worked with before? I found Her quite fascinating though there doesn’t seem to be loads of information about Her.
Brightest of Blessings,
