Ring the bell!

Congratulations!  If you completed yesterday’s challenge you made it through the program!  I’m so proud of you!  It has truly been a marvelous joy working with you this year and I have treasured our time together.  We’ve all had our ups and downs these past thirty days. As a team we made it through, supporting each other, doing magick together, and sharing our experiences.  The group mind is a marvelous thing!

Hettie’s Tip for Today:  Hettie has a few coupon ideas for 2012:

1.  Use plastic sleeve baseball card holders in a notebook.  For larger coupons, use plastic photo sleeves.  Both will fit in a ring binder.  Decorate the ring binder with magickal sigils to promote positive abundance and good fortune.

2.  Organize your binder by expiration date followed by product type.  This way you won’t miss out using a coupon because its expired, and expired coupons you didn’t use can be easily and quickly thrown away.

3.  Keep some coupons with the product currently in use.  For example, I have a large clear glass jar for dog bones.  And, of course, we always run out of dog bones right before, or right after I’ve gone shopping.  Last year, I started putting the coupons for the dog bones right in the glass jar with the dog bones.  That way, when I see we’re running low on the treats, I just pull out a coupon and put it in my wallet or attach it to my weekly grocery list, depending on when I plan to go to the store next.

4  Keep the unusual, specialty coupons or gift certificates in your wallet, particularly those from specialty stores.  For example, let’s say you get a rewards coupon from your favorite craft store.  Yet, every time you’re out doing errands, you forget to use the coupon because you neatly filed it away…somewhere.  Tuck this kind of coupon in a back pocket of your wallet or purse so that you have it with you the next time you visit that store.

Today’s Challenge:  Ritually welcome in the New Year by building a sacred spot in your home that reflects your wishes and desires for  the coming year.  Light one white candle at the stroke of midnight, and every night thereafter for seven days.  Intone our daily prayers and our manifestation conjuration as your ritual; or, write something special that reflects your personal desires and choice of deity energy.  End your ritual by using our Gold Star Meditation.  You can simply become one, super nova glowing star, or take the time to make them all shine!  At the end of your ritual, be sure to make a declaration of conclusion (So Mote It Be, So Be It, etc.) and remember to seal the working.

The New Year holiday is one of my favorite  because the energy created by human celebration as it thunders and rolls across the globe offers you a tremendous boost only attainable once a year.  This year the First Quarter Moon is in Aries — an aggressive, starting energy that will last only for a short time — specifically until Monday, when at 5:16 PM (2:16 PM PST) when the Moon enters Taurus.  Aries is best known for its burst of energy.  A great starter; but, not a long term finisher.  An Aries Moon is great for things you want to start and finish quickly — small goals that you believe are easily attained by your own hard work or forward momentum.  A great energy time for recharging your personal power batteries, so that you can roll positively through the next few weeks.  Larger goals begun under an Aries Moon should have a back-up plan that includes Taurus (the next sign) energy, as Taurus is often considered the most stable sign of the zodiac and can help solidify those long-term plans.

Aries is considered a “Hot” sign, due to its Mars rulership, cardinal position (beginnings), and fire element correspondence.  Hot colors and hot herbs often fall under the auspices of Aries.  Since we just went through our kitchen cabinets, we know whether we have any of the following that could be used in our New Year’s Ritual:

Barbecue sauce (no kidding)
Cayenne Pepper
Gingerbread Cookies
Horseradish or Hot Sauces
Peppers (Hot or Red)

These items can be employed in the spellcasting process, or given as gifts to Deity, the beloved dead (if they liked the items), or Good Spirits.

If you complete today’s challenge of a New Year’s Ritual and creating a sacred spot that will reflect your wishes and desires for 2012 –you earn the last gold star of the program — Congratulations!

Ring the Bell!

For Tomorrow:  My most sincerest blessings to you tomorrow, and every day thereafter.  Merry Part until we Merry Meet Again.  Hettie and I will miss you.

  1. Thank you so much for all of your time & effort, wishing you the brightest of blessings for the New Year!

  2. Thanks Silver, this has been fun! You and your family have the Happiest of New Years as well!

  3. Thank you, Silver! Wishing bright blessings for a New Year filled with health, happiness, peace, love, and abundance!

  4. blessings in abundance be with you and your precicous family silver:) thankyou for the wonderful journey this is the first time I’ve felt at peace welcoming in the new year…
    Its wonderful to be part of the magical family you have bought together through the amazing 30day challenge….blessings to you all for 2012:)

  5. Thank you for the program Silver. I have to report, sadly, that I was not able to keep up with the program due to a very persistent stomach bug. I’m just now beginning to get back into things. I was finally able to do Day 23’s Physical Mission of releasing something on the property that has been sitting outside. The weather was so nice that I took a trash bag, the regular broom, the dust broom and the dust pan outside and cleaned off the front steps, our little patio, and the little bit of a lawn that we have. I swept, picked up all the bits of trash that were out there (including a stray work boot on the lawn, I kid you not!), and walked the trash bag and our heavy duty broom (that someone had left behind the broken PVC piping used for the roof to the dog’s yard outside all summer (which would explain why I could never find the darn thing when I looked for it) around to the back and threw them out. The front looks great and I’m proud of that fact that I got it done in time for New Year’s.

    I know I asked this, but will there be a way for those of us who started late or are restarting in January to share our efforts, pictures, support etc. with you and each other? I know I personally love all the ideas I get from you and from the others here, and that encouragement really helps in keeping the momentum going.

    Happy New Year’s and Blessed Be.

  9. Thank you for doing this and guiding us. Have a happy, healthy and blessed 2012. I’m saving your posts so that I can do a “tune up” later on. Sometimes, all we need is a nudge to get things going.

  10. Thank YOU Silver for sharing this program that I look forward to every year. May your year shine for you and your loved ones. Peaceful 2012 to all!

  11. Thank you Silver for the time spent with all of us and the joy of release. Blessings be upon you and your for the New Year. This past month has been such a release for me and my husband. He as well has enjoyed working by my side in the completion of this program. We are ready to begin 2012 with a space that is less crowded and cluttered. Blessed Be!

  12. Like a typical Virgo, I started to mentally beat myself up for not being able to clean under the sink or clean the stove. (Husband home for two weeks who had other ideas of fun.) However, I did investigate Shaun the Sheep and now have a new happy obsession! Thank you so much for all the encouragement. What a wonderful program!! Happy New Year to you and yours.

  13. Thanks a lot for being the mentor on this subject matter. My partner and i enjoyed your article very much and most of all cherished how you handled the areas I widely known as controversial. You’re always incredibly kind towards readers much like me and aid me in my existence. Thank you.
