1st Quarter Moon in Capricorn (its all about structure) moves to Moon in Aquarius where it is all about determination and innovation!

Monday – Moon Planetary Ruler

Your Challenge Today – Door Knobs – cleanse every doorknob in the house – replace or repair if necessary.  Be sure to wash the door around the knob.  If you are super energetic – wash all the doors (both sides) and follow with blessing.  Draw runic or planetary charms or sigils on each door with holy water – “light up” those charms by using a lit candle to spark the work.  Blow on the sigil/charm with your breath 3 times to seal.

Chamber door, knob, and lock
Seconds, minutes, tick and tock
Protect within the bad keep out
Prithee door, be strong and stout!

Think about it.  Everyone touches the doorknob!  When you cleanse and bless the doors and doorknobs in your home, you remove stored negativity left there from every member of the household.

Consider decorating the doors with herbal sachets and other physical charms.  With Command brand door hooks, handles and knobs there is no end to your magickal creativity!

I was curious about the history of the doorknob and found this on a quick search:.  The first documentation of the invention of a doorknob was in 1878.  The U.S. Patent Office received a submission made for improvements on a door-closing device by an African American inventor named Osbourn Dorsey.

House Blessing Sachet – My formula includes Rose, Lavender, Rosemary, Myrrh, Lemon Verbena, White Sage, African Basil, and Egg Shell bits.  You can also add chamomile and mint if you like.  Herbal formulas, complete with cotton conjure bag and raw quartz crystal are available in my whispermagick store – http://www.whispermagick.com if you don’t have a herbal cabinet of your own.

Just remember…to complete today’s main challenge you must throw or give away one physical item.

My Progress – The weekend was busy for me!  It started with my Poppet Magick Seminar on Friday night at Inner Connections in New Cumberland.  We had a lot of fun and I enjoyed watching the energy of the group mind as it progressed from singular energy patterns to a combined, pulsating matrix of creativity.  Laughter, singing, and light-hearted merriment made the poppet seminar a pleasurable experience for all.   We used my Good Spirits herbal formula and Talking Head herbal powder to stuff their creations.  Doing this seminar at the store was great because participants could pick their own gemstones from Inner Connections’ large selection of tumbled stones.   This way, folks could tailor their creations to their specific needs with blessings from Earth Mother.

Saturday I played catch-up with some of my Great Release tasks.  I cleaned the oven — blah!  bleck!  yuck!  The laundry room took me a lot longer than I thought it would (I use it as a storage area) and I had to space it over two days because of my busy schedule.  I had no idea I had so many plastic containers – sheesh!  I also cleaned out the washer and vacuumed the lint trap in the dryer.  Clothes lint is a fire hazard.  It can build up and ignite over time.  Even though I clean the lint trap with every dryer load, I like to clean the trap inside the dryer and the outside vent about twice a year.

From there I moved to the kitchen and cleaned the “baking” cabinet.  Then made puppy cookies for Wednesday’s Great Release post and human chocolate chip cookies for the family.  Since I cleaned the cabinet that holds all my baking supplies, I figured I should use some of them!

My reward this weekend was buying a set of British mystery movies (so love them!)

Day 9 – Great Release Program – 9 December 2018 – Sunday – Silver RavenWolf


Day Nine — of 2018 Great Release Program – 9 December – Sunday
By Silver RavenWolf

dayninegreatrelease1st Quarter Moon in Capricorn (its all about structure)
Sunday – Sun Planetary Ruler

Whoot!  Whoot!  9 Days – I’m dancing!  I’m dancing!  You have powered through the most challenging days of the program!  From here on?  Much easier!

DAILY BREW – THE STARS AND YOU! 9 December – Sunday – Capricorn moon shines on as Mercury in Scorpio dances through the last degrees of that sign, vibrating closure energy on Mercury-type issues (communication, letters, e-mails, phone calls, plans, documentation, monetary movement, interaction between family members, etc.) before the new waltz with Sagittarius begins.

Mercury will move out of its storm on Tuesday, and you may experience the removal of blocks and tendrils of tension dissolve as you motor through holiday activities.  During the program, you might try working with Labradorite gemstone which is thought to help you release old, negative patterns.  Some believe that the stone enhances communication with the divine, brings balance to body, mind and spirit, cleans and repairs the aura, and heightens intuition.  Burn a deep blue candle to make the pattern of your work stronger as you apply labradorite in your practice.

Other gemstones used for release include: Rose Quartz — I swear by this stone for all sorts of uses.  If you work in retail or other public venues, carry one in your pocket.  It helps to keep your heart balanced and ward off the angst of others.  I noticed the biggest difference if I forgot to carry it with me when I worked at the store.

Green Aventurine – Helps to hold this stone when dealing with emotional pain.  Sit quietly.  Breathe in deeply.  Hold one second (pause).  Breathe out deeply.  Letting everything go as you breathe out.  It may help you to visualize breathing in the Spirit of Love (or whatever is positive to you) and then as you breathe out, allow the energy to flush through your body and dance from your fingers or toes.  Next breath flush out through your heart chakra.  If you think a particular chakra is blocked, continue the deep breathing, envisioning the energy running cleanly through that chakra.  If you are dealing with depression, check yourself, you may actually be forgetting to breathe for seconds at a time, skipping breaths, or breathing too shallow.  Try correcting this pattern as often as you notice it with full, deep, relaxing breaths.

Rhodochrosite – Good for releasing the anger or hurt caused by an individual (negative person that is/was in your life).  The stone is used in poppets and sachets to help mend a broken heart and attract positive, uplifting emotional exchanges with others.  I often add it to packets for confidence and improving self-esteem.

This week, you may be feeling a heightened degree of independence in one area of your life, focusing on the house in your natal chart where the planet Venus is currently visiting.  This confidence and strength may allow you to create exactly what you need in that area, especially as Venus is sextile Saturn in Capricorn, exact in about a week (which means the energy is operative up until then).  Venus sextile Capricorn lends a positive vibration, particularly if you help those older than yourself, refurbish items of a structural nature (furniture for example), detail work, choose to work out relationship glitches, and enhance business activities because you are more focused on the practicality of smooth, enhanced flow.

Your Challenge Today – I’m so sorry to do this to you…sigh…the oven.  The oven, the microwave, the toaster oven, the toaster – anything that you push de button and it gets super-duper hot with the end-game of cooking food.

Just remember…to complete today’s main challenge you must throw or give away one physical item.

Merry Moose!

If you are feeling super crafty this weekend, you may want to create Merry Moose, the symbol of this year’s Great Release Challenge.  Animals “come” to me in life experiences or dreamtime, and in turn, I share their energy through art and writing with others.  The moose knocked on my creative door in October, bringing light-hearted fun and joy.

Meaning:  Usually, when moose comes enters your life the animal brings good luck and self-confidence.  Moose tells us that we need to activate our talents, acknowledge our own strength and power, and use the energy within us and around us to enhance our well-being.  We shouldn’t be ashamed of our talents, or allow others through their negative actions or comments to rob us of the joy we experience when using or sharing those talents with others.  Moose says you can find balance and grace within the body and you have.  AND…moose also stands for solidarity and togetherness – tribe.  Best of all, the baby moose is a bringer of good fortune!

MooseAs with the gnome, you can make Merry Moose out of paper or felt.  Be sure to stuff his tummy with a magickal petition and herbs that correspond to your intention.  Hang Merry Moose in a prominent place in your living area so that he/she can bring you what you desire quickly.  In my example, the bells on the feet are to ward off negative energies that may try to destroy your intention.

You can copy the pattern from this blog, or you can download it for fifty cents from my whispermagick store – http://www.whispermagick.com

Scheduling!  The Great Release Program includes some challenges that you may wish to schedule in advance.  They are:  Haircut (hair, nails, massage, etc.), Pet Day (where you do something nice for your pet, and if you don’t have a pet, something nice for nature in general), Charity Day (where you focus on giving to others), and Vehicle Day (where you clean your mode of transportation and make the necessary arrangements for safety adjustments).  Although I will list them on a specific day (just to keep the program running), you can fit these things in where they suit.  Today, you might want to look at your calendar page and add these challenges where they will be best for you.
