Silver RavenWolf – Day 28 -Monday – 28 December 2015 – Great Release Challenge



2015 Great Release Program
Day 28- December 28 2015
by Silver RavenWolf

Every day you must throw or give something away!


3rd Quarter Moon in Leo (Closure)

Sun Hour for Leo Energy
Moon Hour for the Ruler of the Day

This Week’s Theme:  Peace Within – Closure

The Foundation —  Begin your day with the Braucherei Morning cleansing and empowerment exercise (please view first post of the program ).

This Week’s Theme — Closure!

Things forgotten, tasks left unfinished, projects begun and set aside…all these open things, even though they are small, can ramp up the stress level in our lives.  This week, our last of the challenge, our focus is on completion of these small things before the New Year begins and Mercury turns retrograde on Tuesday, the 5th of January.  If you are having trouble with any of these closures — put your hands on the object, project, thing, etc., breathe deeply and use these words (or others of your choosing) before you dig in:

Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
Peace Within.

Continue to use the Five Rays of Joy exercise given on On Day 12 .

If you like, continue to use the Peace Prayer in your daily activities (located in Day 2 of the program) and and Peace in the Moment visualization.  When you have finished with this week’s theme exercise, move on to today’s fun activities!

Silver’s Notes:  After today, only 3 days left in our Challenge!

We are coming in on the home stretch!  Hang in there!  Only 3 days to go!  I am so proud of you!  I actually managed to get that closet finished (much to my husband’s dismay as he eyed the five contractor bags of trash) — however, I am clapping my hands and jumping up and down!  I also made a small, small dent in the craft room — I’ll do my best to get as much completed as I can before we ring in 2016!

Magickal Challenge

Today’s Magickal Challenge is prep for your New Year’s Ritual.  Choose whether you would like to perform it on the eve, or on the day.  This year the Moon is in Virgo and then voids on New Year’s Eve — and is in Libra on New Year’s Day.  You may want to take that information into consideration when planning your ritual.  Start thinking about what you desire for this ritual — Moon is in the 3rd Quarter — Releasing and Clearing.  You may want to use the holiday for personal, spiritual cleansing — out with the old and in with the new!  Don’t forget about the goals we talked about at the beginning of the program.  Finally, we are honoring our hard work with the Release Challenge!  You deserve the best!

Begin gathering your altar setup today (if you haven’t already), so that everything will be at your fingertips when you perform your ritual.  Remember the stick you were going to decorate?  That will be a part of your ritual, too.

Lord Thorn’s Altar 2014

Your second magickal challenge today is to study the Thorn/Thurisaz. This is another powerful rune — considered a war fetter.  Use it with great respect.  How do you think you can you apply this rune in your life?



Physical Challenge

Your physical challenge today is super easy!  Prepare your date book or family calendar for the new year!


Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide is my favorite because it shows Moon in the Signs and planetary information that is helpful for ritual and spell planning.  Every year has good fortune days when Jupiter, Venus, and the Sun are well aspected.  I always look for those days at the beginning of the year and circle them.  These are excellent days for rituals of super success or creating potions, conjuring bags, fluid condensers and more for positive influences in your life.  I also highlight Mercury, Mars, or Venus retrogrades when applicable – these are rest periods or times to work on old projects rather than begin anything new.

Today’s Summary

Practice the Peace in the Moment Exercise.

Repeat the Peace Prayer, Star Throw Blessing, and Peace in the Moment exercises if you like.

Practice your personal Five Rays of Joy wake-up program.

Concentrate on Finishing Any Open Projects

Start writing and gathering supplies for your New Year’s Ritual — it should focus on the completion of this program and the goals you listed at the beginning of our 2015 challenge.

Study the Thurisaz/Thorn Rune – How Can You Use This Rune in your Work?

Prepare your Magickal Calendar for the coming year.

    Throw out or give one thing away (most important task)

Don’t forget to add the coins to your Joy Jar!

Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
Peace Within

Sleep Well and see you tomorrow!

  1. Silver you are such inspirational person. It has truly been tough to do this release challenge this year. Being i am the only witch in my family that I know of. My husband is very supportive but believes in other ways. Makes it difficult for me especially when we are his brothers house and they pray makes me feel very uncomfortable.
    Plus we still haven’t moved into our house yet so very tight space with no privacy.
    My apologies I am babbling.
    I really love the art work you have done along with the runes I would like to know are you saleing any of them

    1. Hang in there. Very soon you will have your privacy! I am delighted that you are enjoying the runes — I never thought of selling them, lol. In 30 days things are going to look particularly bright for you!

  2. Dear Silver, we had a very good Christmas, Kids love this, to get presents. It was very peaceful, not stressed like the years before. I stayed quite and peaceful. So this was very helpful. I also finished a lot of the laundry, washing and ironing. But it was very good. Thrown everyday something away. Step by Step, everything was done. We went out, played some tabletennis and Biking around the lake. So you helped me a lot. Since I did your program and read your books. And I am going to repeat this program again through the year. So would be very nice if you could manage propably ones a month something like a program for one day or so. Just that it is not so Long until next years program. I am going to miss you! Maybe before the next Holidays which will come, I do not know how Ostara is to be celebrated? So this would be very nice if you Show, what you are prepare, or do Altar Set up during this time. Thank you. Love Kristina

    1. I am going to miss you, too. I usually repeat the program for myself sometime around mid-year — June or July, depending on how busy our schedule is here. I tried to do it on-line one year; but, the four hours every day was just too much, and I had to let the program go after two weeks. I wish you the very best! I am very, very proud of you!

  3. I am quite astounded at how hard this years program was for me! I have been doing this since the beginning and have never had such as issue with doing it. It has has been a struggle to do the ritual/magickal parts (the physical part has been okay) -usually it is the other ponder wtf is going on with me.

  4. I didn’t have a lot to do for my calendar this year. I did go through and write down the name for each month’s full moon (as that is my main focus this year), but I want to work the whole cycle, so I will be doing each moon’s reading/research/planning throughout it’s cycle. I think I will be continuing my daily rune draw (and found where I am going to note those in my calendar again too). This year I think I will be looking to the runes for where I should place my attention that day (where as this past year it was all about what would bring me the most joy in a day). I did take a bit of Washi tape and reinforce the spine/decorate it…I just have a plain blue plastic cover on my calendar, but now it has some silver sparkling stripes and sun/moon decals! I may add some sharpie zentangle as the year goes on…not sure!

    My altar is ready, my decorated stick waiting on it (I put the stick there after I finished with it), so very much ready on that front!

    The phrase that comes to mind for me with Thurisaz is ‘the best defense is a good offense’. The shape reminds me of a thorn on a branch, and that brings with it the image of a great wall or barrier built of thorns (like a brier patch). And while the thorns will definitely give attackers something to think about, a smart person will have a way through (like the rabbit that builds it’s den in the biers). Thurisaz is also connected with the Thurz, a form of Giant. I really like the perspective of Giants as embodiment of nature, especially the destructive parts of nature. They are neither good or bad themselves, but they can bring great ruin if we don’t guard against them. Strength used without wisdom can bring about a lot of destruction.
