by Silver RavenWolf
Sun in Capricorn
Moon in First Quarter Pisces
Five Planets in Practical Goal-Setting Capricorn – Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto
Mercury/Jupiter Conjunction in Capricorn (on the 2nd) brings good news and positive communication
Our Great Release Program this year starts off with optimism (Mercury/Jupiter conjunction) embraced with the stability of five planets in reward building Capricorn! Excellent energies to embrace with thoughts and actions! Our first week is absolutely a Good Fortune one!
If you read the Program Introduction, you may have set your Program Goal and your 4 Weekly Goals, or you may be waiting for inspiration to hit you! Today, let’s make sure we have our first weekly goal and our main goal in place, particularly since the astrological energies are so good! Write your goals down on separate pieces of paper or a small index card and tape both goals where you will see them every day. Mine are on my bathroom mirror. Hey! Its my bathroom! The fellas have their own. Your goals can be program-oriented (by the end of this year’s challenge I will have cleaned the garage), OR, they can be more spiritual/personal (by the end of this year’s challenge I will have started my next book because I’ve cleared out all the obstacles that I thought were in my way because I know the only thing in my way is myself). Yeah. You’re right. Run-on sentence. Whatever. I could pare it down to: I will not procrastinate. And, if I REALLY wanted to be positive intent oriented following universal rules, I would say: I move forward.
What is your Great Release Program Goal?
What is your Great Release Program Goal for this week?
Gold Stars — Every day you can earn gold stars. When you reach 10 gold stars you do something nice for yourself. When you reach 25 gold stars — you deserve a reward! Be sure to take the time out of your busy schedule to do (or purchase) something super nice for you! I provide a guideline each day on how much the tasks are worth. You can change this guideline in any way you desire. I use a calendar page just for the Great Release Program to mark how many stars I earn and keep track of my accomplishments and goals.
What You Must Do Every Day: Throw or give something away. You may not be able to do all the challenges provided by the program. The only hard and fast rule? No matter what — you must throw or give something away every day.
Charity Box or Bag: Set a charity box or bag by your front or back door. Take the contents to your chosen charity each week. If you have children, have them decorate a cardboard box. This will help to get them excited about giving to others.
New Year’s Day Traditions!
In keeping with our popular yearly cycle, New Year’s Day represents a wonderful time to instill good fortune into our coming year through celebration and actions. Many people prepare and eat “lucky foods” to ensure positive abundance in the home. These foods include pork and sauerkraut, black-eyed peas, leafy greens, cornbread, fish, noodles and rice, and eating twelve grapes (one for good luck each month). We’ll be serving several of these lucky foods today — how about you?
And this one is for Rita — I found it while surfing the net — “In some Latin American countries, including Mexico and Brazil, it’s believed the color of your undergarments will influence what kind of year you’ll have. Tradition holds that yellow underwear will bring prosperity and success, red will bring love and romance, white will lead to peace and harmony and green will ensure health and well-being, according to Michael Kleinmann, the underwear expert.” — USA Today, 2013 December. I think I’m going to tie-dye mine.
Another fun tradition is to paint or cover with fabric a cleaned metal can with green and gold (or red) that originally held food that you have eaten (as long as you did not throw any of the food away). Place a handful of blessed coins in the can along with a charm for prosperity and good fortune and a spoonful of dried rice or beans, or you can use the formula listed under the photo. Cover the can. Shake in every corner of the house on New Year’s Day to bring good fortune into the home. Save your “money rattle” and use it throughout the year when things start looking a little slim. Place the rattle by the front door when not in use to encourage good fortune to enter the home.
Decorate A New Broom (or spruce up your old one). Ribbons, bells, tulle, mini poppets and spirit animals, gemstones and feathers! Dress up a very magickal broom that represents your personal power and your ability to sweep garbage out of your life! In the future? Who needs flying monkeys — just get your broom!
Don’t Forget The Nightly Buzz!
This is where you quickly go through the entire living area and pick up all the clutter, wipe up the spills, and ensure all trash goes where it belongs right before you go to bed. Keep an eye on recurring messy areas (night after night) because that is where negativity is hanging. You might want to give that area a really good cleaning and bless it with white sage, incense, or place an aromatic diffuser close by.
Today’s Main Challenge — Move one piece of furniture that has been in the same place for over a year (or since you have been in the current living space), OR rearrange a room. Moving large items in the home helps to dispell stagnation and encourages new pathways and opportunities. – Earn 5 gold stars.
- Do the Morning Ritual – earn one gold star.
- Practice the Rattle Bath – earn one gold star.
- Mark what you accomplished on your Great Release Calendar.

- Tonight, remember to practice your Nightly Buzz-Through Review – keep an eye on those messy areas. This is where you quickly go through the entire living area and pick up all the clutter, wipe up the spills, and ensure all trash goes where it belongs.
Extra Credit – 5 stars if you prepared a special good luck food item.
Did you add up the stars? If you completed all the items that carry stars, you will already have earned over 25 stars! Whoot! Reward time!
