4th Quarter Moon in Scorpio
The main thrust of all of my Release Programs is to get you to learn to “shift” the energy.
That’s the core.
When you are sad, unhappy, over-worked, stressed, feeling so down that you think you can never get up again? Just one little switch. Just one change. Just one step.
That’s all it takes to move forward in a way that will help you.
Release one thing.
Just one — to shift that energy!
Today (Friday) is devoted entirely to our Need Dolly. Every day we told our dolly what we need in our lives. The dolly has seen how we live and watched our family members. This day, we command our dolly to walk through all realms, both seen and unseen and provide an open pathway for our success! I usually cast a circle, and burn my Need Dolly, telling him or her specifically what I want without being overly complicated. Then, I seal the working when the doll is completely burned. You may not wish to use fire – perhaps you would like to use water – a stream or river – if your dolly is completely natural, it won’t harm any animals by releasing it this way. Others may wish to bury their dolly, burying the pain, trouble, and debt deep within the earth and asking that their lives be cleansed of difficulty. To bury the doll, take it apart, sprinkle it with sea salt and lavender, and lay the pieces to rest. In the end — how you release your doll is entirely up to you. You have the power.
I choose to do a small ritual, outdoors, where I will add dried lavender, white sage, and lemon verbena from the family herb garden. I will cast a circle, call the quarters, ask for the blessing of divinity, and then command the doll. I will also ask that all negativity in and around the household and family be banished, and that sweet joy, harmony, and laughter fill the space. At that point, I will burn the doll and the herbs — uttering a short chant of my choice that supports this working until the flame dies to nothing. Then, I will thank deity, close the quarters, take up the circle and scatter the cold ashes in the winter wind.
After you release your doll?
Rest and party! It is a 4th quarter moon after all! A time of passion, joy, and relaxation! You deserve it!
Thank you so much for joining us this year. If you liked this short program, please let me know in the comments section. Perhaps we could schedule another close to MidSummer? If there is enough interest, Taco Cat and I will put our heads together to whip up another fun week of release!
Until we meet again!
