Silver RavenWolf – Day 31 -Thursday – 31 December 2015 – Great Release Challenge – Cinnamon Prosperity Wish Bags


2015 Great Release Program
Day 30- December 30 2015
by Silver RavenWolf

Every day you must throw or give something away!


3rd Quarter Moon Void in Virgo (Closure)
Moon Moves into Libra New Years Eve for Pacific Coast
but remains void for East Coast

Mercury Hour for Virgo Energy
Jupiter 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 ).

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:  Whoot!  You Made It!

You did it!  Every day for 31 days you managed to throw or give something away!  During the program we cleaned, straightened up, fixed, cleared and accomplished — and all that while we focused heavily on your magick and the inner self.  I am so proud of you!

This last week I managed to finish the craft room closet (which I thought I wouldn’t be able to get to), cleaned out the kitchen cabinets, fixed a broken table, completed three household craft projects, do grandma duty (my version of babysitting), clear out the refrigerator a second time, finish the laundry, take a sick person to the hospital, and rearrange my bedroom clothing shelves.  Whew!  What were you able to accomplish?

New Years Eve is one of my favorite times for magick because a large portion of the world expends a great deal of energy in revelry — energy that you can catch the wave and use, if you focus.  I also like New Years Eve/Day because the time period isn’t a religious holiday — it is simply “joy of the people”.  Don’t forget that Jupiter goes retrograde on the 7th — which often affects good fortune coming into the home if you haven’t prepared for it.  Each year I make a conjure bag to keep our stability and finances strong during that retro period.  I also learned a long time ago that you:

  1.  Keep the largest denomination bill you can afford rolled and wrapped with red thread hidden in a box throughout the Jupiter retrograde period.  When the retro is over, spend it on the home OR give it to charity.
  2. ALWAYS have some money in the bank — even if it is only a few bucks.

During a retro period, a planet’s energies are turned within — that means that you will expand within yourself — it may be your spirituality, educating yourself, learning to be more charitable, etc.  When the planet swings direct, you will feed that energy out into the world.

On this last day I’ve given you two idea that you can use to prepare for the Jupiter retro period — the Cinnamon Conjure Bag or the Gnome Prosperity Poppet.

Mercury is retrograde from 5 January through 25 January 2016.

Jupiter is retrograde from 7 January through 9 May 2016.

This year, the Moon is Void in Virgo most of the day and evening, so you may want to do your New Years magick early in the day (before 11:50 AM EST/ 8:50 AM PST) OR after 1:41 AM New Year’s Day for Eastern Standard Time.  Pacific folks can work their magick at 10:41 PM on New Years Eve, when the moon moves into Libra.

This is a third quarter moon, so banishing work will do extremely well.  A simple spell would be to write all that is bothering you on slips of paper and burn them as that wave of energy flows your way.

Traditionally, New Years Day is seen as “new beginnings” regardless of the moon phase.  In our Pennsylvania Dutch German family we always have pork and sauerkraut on New Year’s Day to bring good luck throughout the coming year.  We also do the Braucherei Takin-off for every member of the family to remove all negativity on New Years Eve.

It has been a marvelous pleasure to spend the last 31 days with you!  I am proud of all of you for sticking with it, and plowing into change with a light heart and plenty of smiles.  You are the best!  May the wonderful energies you have created in this last month stay with you the whole year through!  The brightest of blessings to you in 2016!

Your Magickal Challenge Today — is to do the New Years Ritual that you have been planning — you can do it today OR tomorrow – given that the Moon is Void most of the day.

Magickal Ideas for the New Year

This past week I made Cinnamon Good Fortune Wish Conjure Bags to give to my friends to empower on the 9th of January, when the New Moon is in Capricorn.  However, they could also be used for Jupiter Conjure Bags, which you would want to empower before the 7th of January, to protect the wealth in the home.

Regardless, I will bless them at dawn on New Years Day while that sauerkraut and pork simmers in the oven.





The three orange buttons serve three purposes:

While I sewed them on, I chanted a good fortune charm.
The color (orange) is for opportunity.
You can touch the three buttons to help count the chants when empowering the bag or using the bag as a focus in a seven-day good fortune spell.

The rag embellishments are to catch those good fortune energies.

I will burn my bag at Midsummer, and then construct a new one for the second half of the year.

Prosperity Gnome Poppet

On Day 13 we talked about House Spirits and Helper Gnomes.  I found a free felt pattern that you can turn into a gnome design with little effort at Crafter Without a Cat blog.  I decided to create several house-helper gnomes to help usher in the New Year.  This one is for prosperity; however, you can also make one for Wisdom, Family Happiness, Healing, etc.


I stuffed all the items shown into the body of the poppet, added a petition paper to tune the gnome’s energy to my intent, then placed a small amount of batting on top to hold in the contents.


To easily attach the felt bottom, I put the gnome upside down in a small glass and used a whip stitch for closure.


Here are two of my completed gnomes — one is for good fortune and the other for business success.


To empower your gnome — you can use this easy technique:

Hold the gnome in your hands and state your intent.  Then:
1.  Give him or her a name, repeating it 9 times.  With each repetition of the name, blow on the poppet face, envision the glow of life entering the poppet.
2.  Give him or her a specific purpose.
3.  Indicate how you will activate him or her when he or she is needed.
4.  Seal the magick by drawing an equal-armed cross in the air over the gnome.

Keep your gnome in a safe place.  The destruction of your gnome by your cat picking his teeth with it may lead to unfortunate circumstances (like a sick cat).

If, for any reason, you no longer want to use your gnome — de-activate the poppet magickally, and then physically.

Physical Challenge

What is the one last physical thing that you would like to do today to finish out the program with a feeling of super success?  Have at it!

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.

Choose a magickal craft that is a significator of your efforts in this program — something that you will look at throughout the year and remember how much effort and the wonderful success you achieved with the Great Release Challenge!

Perform a New Years Ritual that is tailored specifically for your needs.

Do one physical thing to close out the program.

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

Don’t forget to add the coins to your Joy Jar! Tomorrow, give the coins to charity.

Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
Peace Within

Sleep Well and see you next year!

Happy New Year!

  1. I agree with Sharon – a wonderful program and many thanks to Silver RavenWolf for such detailed information and creative exercises. Wishing you every blessing and happiness in the coming Year!! Dee

  2. Thanks again. I have gotten sooo much done this year. The biggest was my hubby agreed I could help him with a mess of his that was driving me bonkers, and we did it😀. I made the jupiter packet from last year, it was so successful for us, but I have been crocheting little gnomes and I think at least one will get a little something special in its stuffing. Being southern we will be eating blackeyed peas, greens and cornbread for a succesful abundant new year (peas for pennies and ward off evil eye,greens for dollarsand corn bread for gold) Also remember no laundry tomorrow. My grandmother always said wash on new years and you’ll be washing for the dead. Kind of creepy but well, listen to those grandmas. Many blessings to all for a happy new year.

  3. Thank you so much for another wonderful Release Program! I plan to start your Lessons that I downloaded a year ago! One question about today; I might have missed it but what do we do with the stick we decorated? Thank you so much! Many blessings for the New Year.

  4. Wunjo!!!! Wunjo!!!! Wunjo!!!! What a wonderful Great Release Program this year. Thank you Silver!!!!

    Finished up the months work…. cleaned under the living room couch and went over the floors again. Donated the joy jar money and took one last load to the Goodwill. Did a closing ritual and had a sacred fire outside and burned up the journal I’ve been keeping all month. That felt good, really good! I am going to continue to do the daily prayer work and start organizing the garage. I set the foundation today with a little tar water and blessed water. 😉

    Many blessings to you all. Happy New Year!!!!

  5. Dear Silver, wish you a very Happy New Year 2016. Health to you and your Family. This was my 3rd year doing your wonderful magic program and it was my greatest year. I had so much fun this year. The last 2 days I was so busy with cleaning. I want to have it extra clean and I cleaned arround 3 hours but there was a flow in this I did it with love. Plesse if you can do this Programm before the Holidays like Ostara would be very good or if special days or conditions are. Thank you. You helped me so much! Stay well! Thank you! Love Kristina

  6. Happy New year 2016! So happy I managed to stick with the Program and rounded it off yesterday 31st with Lemon Magick, a lovely evening by the fireside and then out to the garden to watch the Northern Lights over the hills. This year instead of feeling restless and bored in the New Year I am feeling happy and blessed and looking forward to the relative quiet and calm of January. Thank you again Silver. I hope you have a good rest in the next few days and wish you and you family brightest blessings and good fortune for the coming year. Looking forward to starting the course online this year. Thank you again for this wonderful gift!

  7. Silver, I just want to offer up my greatest gratitude to you for doing this event. I always have fun, and learn, and this year loved reading and sharing about runes! I am definitely going to be coming back to some of the practices you shared (really love those gnomes, going to have to snag me some felt from the store and make some!)

    When I was decorating my stick, and tying on all those scraps of thread from projects, I was thinking about using it as sort of a ‘record stick’ of my year. (this one will be a composite of what has come before plus this coming year). But I really love the idea of having all these little bits and ends of things I have worked on tied to the stick. When I use it, I can then call upon all that creative energy, all that love that I have put into projects, and also honor the releasing of things that I might have otherwise held on to ‘just in case I need it’. I think, at the end of this coming year, I will release this stick and make a new one.

  8. Hi Silver, I would also like to say Thank You for another year of the Great Release Program and may your kindness and generosity be returned to you in many blessed and wonderful ways throughout this year!

    You have gifted us with some very interesting information. I was able to keep up with the Morning Braucherei cleansing and the empowerment exercise but kept forgetting the Peace visualization throughout the day. The bouts of three minute cleaning were great – it bought tasks down to manageable bits.

    As far as today’s project I’ve only gotten as far as boiling up my cinnamon bags (but not put together yet) and I just got the supplies to make the Lemon Power Fluid. So, I plan on working my way through the month again, catching up on things I missed. Which I obviously did miss some things because as I read through Ascillian’s post I’m going…decorate a stick…what stick? Good golly that one just blew right by me! lol.

    Enjoyed reading all the posts!
    Best to everyone in the coming year 🙂

  9. Happy New Year!!! This is the second time I posted for Day 31. The first one didn’t make it.

    Silver I just wanted to say thank you for this year’s Great Release Program. What a blessing! It has really helped to overcome mental blocks and grief from 2015. There were some tough days but using cold water on my hands helped tremendously. I really enjoyed using the wand in the closing ceremony. Wunjo! I had kept track of each days work in a notebook which I promptly burnt in a sacred fire.

    I started the next notebook, and as I begin this next year I’m going to continue to do the daily devotions, 5 rays of joy, the joy jar and star blessing. In terms of work… onto cleaning up the garage. Being that Mercury Retrograde is this month it seems appropriate to work through the month by tackling this project since it had been ongoing for sometime. I’m also going to take some time to do some fun crafty projects, which I never seem to have time to do… now I’m making time.

    Onward and upward.

  10. May 2016 hold much love, joy, & good fortune for you!! Thank you again for yet another amazing GRP!!
    I didn’t get as much done physically as I would’ve liked, & I wish I had more time to comment; but a LOT of negativity (co-workers, general situations, financial) cleared up more than ever! I’m confident 2016 is going to be a great year for my Better Half & me. 🙂
    I’m so happy to hear you defanged your closet too, lol! Irma amazing what hides in there when you’re not looking.
    Thank you for putting in such an effort for such a successful program, for your encouraging comments & your overall inspiration! I’m going to use the spells & rituals in the coming months to increase success in what we need.
    Thank you & a Blessed New Year to you!! 🙂

  11. Thank you so much for yet another great, great, great release challenge! It’s been great work, great fun, great magick, great everything. 😀

  12. Hi, Silver! This is AmberElayne – I want to let you know that I received your message loud and clear and I thank you from the veins of my heart & spirit. 2015 was a very challenging year for me, dealing with work and all if its “players” – I’m still in transition, but I’m on the road ot healing and soon, my favored resolve. Keep me in your thoughts and candles and may peace be with you!!

  13. Silver thanks so much for the time and effort you put into making the Great Release Challenge for us to enjoy for the month of December. I have learned, created, got rid of things, and worked on my spirituality. You do a really fantastic job putting this all together. Blessed Be and we will meet again December 2016 for more fun and games.
