Release Week — Day 2 — Saturday #silverravenwolf

Saturday – 14 January 2017
3rd Quarter Moon begins in Leo – Voids – Moves into Virgo
Saturn Day

Today’s Goal – The Bathroom and Personal Care Products
Don’t Forget Your Main Goal

Thank you for all the comments you left on Day One of the Release Week Challenge!  I really appreciate hearing from you!  Some of you have asked why I posted “on the wrong day” — that is because I set this challenge up early so that folks from other countries could also enjoy it.  Some are 7 hours or more ahead of the United States, so posting early is helpful to them.  Please also note that we are using the Almanac Quarter Division for the monthly astro info — not the 8 Phase moon model.  This may confuse someone who isn’t familiar with both types of moon information.  I use Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for source material.

Secondly, there have been requests for the Universal Fluid Condenser formula.  Here is a current link for you:  This is from Sybil Leek material.

tacocatsinkFor the last two years I have been creating and designing magickal herbal formulas and powders, unique enchanted sigils, and a plethora of Spirit Dolls.  Say “Hellow!” to Taco Cat!  the mascot of the 2017 Release Week Program.  He is a one of a kind Spirit doll that I designed to help me with motivational projects.  He is stuffed with a selection of “git-er-done” magickal herbs, a big crystal and a paper sigil.  I then painted the stuffed muslin form with brown acrylics.  When dry, Taco Cat was sanded, painted with coffee, and rubbed with taco spice herbs mixed with real moonshine, provided by a kindly southern friend. (which is why I call him Taco Cat!).  He was baked for 20 minutes in the oven.  I finished Taco Cat by completing the eyes, painting the tail, and adding needle felted hair and glitter.  Taco Cat is an extension of my desire to finish projects quickly and efficiently. As life doesn’t always work that way, Taco Cat represents my desire to complete all my goals.  I can always try!  Never give up and never give in!  Taco Cat reminds me of this – keep working – keep going – even when you don’t want to or don’t feel like it.  Even when you are hurting, or feeling sad, or lost, or…whatever!  You can do it.  “I gotcha back! say de Taco Cat!”

After 30 years of smoking?  I celebrate 3 months smoke-free at the end of this program. Cold Turkey.  No vaping, no pills, no patches, no gum.

Just blind determination.

And de Taco Cat.

Taco Cat spent all week posing for each day’s picture to go along with the program.  He was there as I completed each recommended task.  I never ask you to do anything I have not done myself.  Taco Cat was so excited to be of service!  He asked if he could have his picture taken with the family’s Need Dolly.  So here it is!  Taco Cat is not for sale and you won’t be able to find a spirit animal like him anywhere — his birth was in my mind transferred to graph paper in the wee hours of the morning under a Scorpio moon.

On a final note — I received some comments about the astrological information — due to the varying time zones of the individuals using the program, I can’t give absolute times  for your specific location– if this is important to you, use an astrological computer program or handbook of your choice.


Astrologically, today is a busy day!  The Leo Moon is blabbing to a compendium of planets in a positive way – so rocketing forward is a great goal, especially if you work in the early morning hours.  The Moon Voids in the afternoon and here we work on daily tasks and hum-drum stuff.  Later, the Moon moves into orderly Virgo.  This energy will be very helpful for our cleansing and clearing activities.

Get your day started with a few 3-minute-dashes, then move on to the bathroom and your personal care products (which always manage to get nasty the longer you keep them).   The primary focus of this week is:  Get Rid Of (not buy more).  Empty spots tend to pull items in.  Have you ever noticed that when you make a concerted effort to clear an area that junk wanders in from other people’s hands?  Aye-ya!  This time, when you clean and get rid of?

Ward and seal the area.


You can sprinkle holy water, use a sage stick or sacred incense, tuning forks or a singing bowl – all of these objects linked with the practice of connecting with peace and harmony boost not only your emotions but the emotions of others in the home as well.

Take a Walk Outdoors Today

At the beginning of the program I encouraged you to go outside and find natural objects for your Need Doll.  Some of you indicated that the weather was just too awful, and I suggested that you use your imagination and walk around your living environment and find useful items that way.  Taco Cat and I will be taking a walk in the woods again today.  The fresh air is important for your continued healing, even if is just a little bit.  We are going to write down on a piece of paper all we want to get rid of in our lives before we go into the forest.  Then, we are going to walk as far as we can, just enjoying nature.  Right before we turn to go home, we will safely burn our paper, then scatter the cold ashes.  We will ask a tree to help us, and the briars, too!  We will also leave birdseed for the birds and food for other critters.  Then, without looking back, we will turn around and come home.  It is okay to let go of things that hurt you so.



Today is a Saturn day – the foundation of limits, structure, and rewards.  Saturn also applies to older folks, antiques, DIY projects, and stuff you should have completed ages ago?  And didn’t.  Take advantage of Saturn’s “finish” energy to complete open projects you’ve been ignoring.  Have fun with today’s tasks!

      1. Thank you, thank you ,I really need to start somewhere in this house ~it is so cluttered and I feel overwhelmed. I need this for motivation

  1. I am going to manage my bathroom as always on Saturday. Shining Mirror, throw out the unused staff and get clean. Afterwards I`ll try to light a parfume candle in the bathroom to get a nice ambience there. Light works always good. Candle Magic is great. Thank you Silver. Love Kristina

  2. When I first started my journey on my path it was your works that guided me. I am so glad to have ran across this on the web. I have missed you so! And I am so glad you are still a guiding light. ❤


    1. I have just finished a book on magickal powders and herbal blends, and am in the process of completing a Poppet and spirit doll book — both will be handled by Llewellyn. I’m still here. Delightful to speak with you, Hazel!

      1. Yay! Good to hear there will be more coming from you. And love the release programs

  3. I learned something I did not know , you go girl ! strength and will must be very strong . today’s tasks are keeping warm and home fires stoked as the winter rains begin to move in , but come spring, that my friend, will be a horse of a different color. I have always loved the fill of a flame … Have a good week .

  4. Aloe Vera plant is excellent to use for the bathroom magic 🙂
    Love You Silver and Taco Cat
    Thank you so much

  5. Silver, congrats on quitting smoking, that is great! it isn’t easy, takes commitment. I am so happy for you. 🙂
    I quit for 10 yrs and like a big dummy started again due to stress, then I quit again when I got pregnant (it was easy that time) and didn’t start back up till I weaned my son at 11 months of age, again stress. Given all that has gone on the last couple years I didn’t know what stress really was back then! Lol. I really want to quit, want my husband to quit too. I just have to do it. Perhaps I can include this desire with my needs dolly?

    1. I feel ya. I smoked for 24 years, quit for 9, then started again 10 years ago. It’s time to quash the beast again, I ain’t getting any younger

  6. My bathroom is completely de-cluttered and I now know that I have enough toothpaste, hand sanitiser and deodorant to last a small, but grubby, apocalypse! 😉 My cats are having a fantastic time crawling through these empty cupboards and drawers while I empty everything out and decide what goes back in again. I’ve even been for a walk, which is extremely good for me! I’m so impressed that you’ve stopped smoking like that, Silver – it’s making me feel inspired to do the same! 🙂 Thanks for another really fun day!

    1. Wow! You are doing great! Only stop when YOU are ready — when you have a good enough reason to do so — because it is this reason you will bring up to yourself while you are trying to break the habit. If the reason isn’t strong enough — won’t work.

  7. Did the Braucherei Morning Ritual combined with candle wish magick. Then cleaned up my bathroom. And created a doll.

  8. Hello Silver and Taco Cat!
    My partner, Wade, and I had a really good time on nature walk talking to those oak trees. City Park is quite a beautiful place and really does help nurture our spirits here at home. We spent a good amount of time by this a big one that had fallen; we listened and enjoyed hearing about all the life she was giving back to the area. She gave us a piece of her root system to attach to our need dolly. He’s quite a wonderful spirit and has this awesome Jamaican man vibe to him.

    Wade and I have just moved in with a wonderful friend not too many weeks ago. She’s quite busy with work, so I have been slowly gathering her home into oder, which she is thankful for. There’s this shelf in the bathroom that has been on my list. I’m getting at it today!
    I hope you enjoy your day and blessed be!

    Zazie and wade!

  9. Dearest Silver, I was 5 when my dad quit smoking cold turkey. I can still remember watching the painful struggle he went through. I am sending you light and love and energy for this portion of your path. You are strong! And thank you for all you do for us.

  10. Dear Silver,
    I am so excited that your doing Release week!
    Your books are the first I ever read. I love the positivity in your writing.
    So happy when I found you on the Internet!
    Thanks to the 1st Great Release I have gotten back into a daily routine.
    Thank you for the continued inspiration 🙂

  11. Had to chuckle just a little, we gutted our main bath yesterday! I’m all in! Congratulations on the smoking.
    On a side note, I picked up a couple copies of Ride a Silver Broomstick the other day and found one you signed in 1997. I’m keeping that one.

  12. Awsomeness, I had to get a start a couple days earlier than your start, so it’s lovely to be in synch in the universe! I hadn’t read this until after my walk yesterday, and a pebble gitted itself tome in my sneaker check I have something from my walk and didn’t even know I needed it.. ❤ Congrats on quitting cigs too, I'm working on that one too 🙂 Lastly, thank you for taking time to put this together. ! xo ❤

  13. Well we got started on our bathroom clearing and it mushroomed into a whole dresser/closet clean out (it was needed). Ended up with a giant bag of garbage and same size bag of donations! We snuck out onto the public trails of a nearby forest to “burn” our letgo’s (it’s really chilly here) and I’m sure the Irish were thinking we were up to no good with the “smoke” lol. Good thing the hubby has a pony tail I’m sure they just mumbled “hippies” and wandered off 🙂 Thank you Silver – all amazing as usual – your programs ROCK~

  14. Congrats on your quitting smoking and not vaping too. I would greatly appreciate it if you would follow me or check out my blog on vaping. Either way thank you for your inspirational writings. -bel
