Fix-It Day!

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

Every day you must throw or give something away!

Wednesday

3rd Quarter Moon in Virgo (Closure)

Mercury Hour for Virgo Energy
Mercury 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 ONE day left in our Challenge!

We are almost there!  Just one more day!  You’ll love the easy lemon magick for your challenge today!

Magickal Challenge

Lemons!  Lemons! Lemons!  The marvelous power of the Lemon!

Lemons are ruled by the Moon and are of the Water Element.  Lemongrass and Lemon Verbena are ruled by Mercury and fall under the Element of Air.

 

“The term “pomander” can be for the actual scented material itself or for the container that contains the scented material. The container could have been made of gold or silver. Pomander can be a bag containing fragrant herbs. Pomanders were an early form of aromatherapy.” — Wikipedia

I have three workings you may enjoy doing today — the first is the simple Lemon Pomander — all you need is a fresh lemon, sequins of your choice, a ribbon, and straight pins.  Cover the lemon with the pins and sequins.  Add the ribbon so that you can hand the decorated lemon.  Allow to air dry.  As the lemon dries, negativity is banished from the home.  Lemons are also thought to bring good luck.  This is a fun craft to do with your family, and perfect for ringing in the New Year with the soothing aroma of lemon!  You can empower the drying lemon for good luck, banishing negativity, removing illness from the home, etc. — the working is entirely up to you.

Removing A Problem From Your Life — is our second working with a lemon.

lemonbanishment

Simply write the issue you want to banish from your life on a slip of paper, fold the paper away from you, and insert it into the lemon.  You can add additional banishment herbs in the slit or write a chant or charm on the skin of the lemon with marker.  As the lemon dries out — your problem withers and dies.  When the lemon is completely dry, throw it in the trash.  If the lemon begins to rot before it is fully dried, remove it immediately from the living environment.  Sometimes the rotted fruit can indicate that the issue is decomposing quickly.  If the problem is still ongoing and the fruit is rotten — repeat the working until either the problem is gone, or the fruit dries without rotting.  Some individuals put the lemon in the refrigerator to prevent the rotting process — this is entirely up to you.

Good Fortune Lemon Working

boilinglulu

The third Lemon Power working is something you are already familiar with — boil sliced lemons on the stove for twenty minutes in blessed water.  As the steam escapes into the air for the first five minutes — chant away the negativity. Cover mixture and allow to boil for an additional 15 minutes.   Let the mixture cool.  Strain out the herbs.  Pour the liquid on your doorstep to banish negativity, prevent evil from entering the home, and welcoming good fortune for the coming new year!  You can also add a pinch of salt to the water and refrigerate, if you like, and use in healing workings to asperge either a person or massage into healing petitions.

Your second magickal challenge today is to study the Mannaz/Man/Madr Rune.   How do you think you can you apply this rune in your life?

Silver’s Notes:  After today, only 2 days left in our Challenge!

Just two days left after today!  Wow!  We are almost finished!  Today, I have a fun magickal project that you can do — PennyWise Packets!

Magickal Challenge

In the 1800s, starting around the time of the Civil War, thrifty homemakers would use scraps of wool or felted wool from old clothing, blankets and hats to create designs for mats or rugs. Using coins as templates, they created circles and each piece was then stitched in blanket stitchfashion. (Thus, the name “penny” rug). Sometimes, the mats or rugs were backed with old burlap bags or feed sacks. Sometimes a penny was stitched inside the mat to make it lie flat.” — Wikipedia

pennyspellpacket

Newspaper articles from the first half of the 1900’s mention packets of cloth wrapped around herbs and paper charms created by Brauchers/Pow-wow’s and Hexenmeisters to protect the bearer or bring good fortune.  This project turns those plain packets into art — using felt, herbs, pennies and other objects to create a Success Spell. You can make just one PennyWise Packet, or several to fashion a spell mat or other artful, ritual idea.  You can even string them together to make a necklace or simply use one as a pendant.  Sew several empowered PennyWise Packets onto a vest, sweater, scarf, handbag, duffle bag — jeans! or use them as a brooch with a pin back.  Hang them on a ritual staff, on the front door, on your magick belt or cords.  PennyWise Packets exemplify the “art” of magick.

Supplies:  In the above picture, I show many of the supplies I used to create a Success Pennywise Packet.  Felt of different colors cut into circular shapes, embroidery thread (but, you could glue yours together if you like), a penny, a lodestone, an acorn, glass beads, chamomile herb and chamomile fluid condenser.

Instructions:  Cleanse and bless all supplies before you begin.  Empower a penny, the herbs and any other object that you will slip between the felt pieces.  You can also cut a circular piece of paper and add magickal sigils along with your intent statement to your packet.

The PennyWise packet goes together like a sandwich with the larger piece on the bottom, and the smaller circles stacked on top.  The packet is easiest to sew if you make two large bottom pieces the same size.  On one of these pieces, stack the others, adding decorations as you go.  Once the top pieces are stacked and decorated, sew on the matching bottom piece leaving an opening to add your herbs and other spell items.  Stitch closed and dress with either magickal success oil or Chamomile Fluid Condenser.  Once your Pennywise Packet is finished, empower and place on your New Year’s Altar.

You can make PennyWise packets for any purpose — healing, protection, love, etc.  The most important ingredient is the penny — which holds the charge for a period of time.  Re-empower your PennyWise Packet every 30 days.

Your second magickal challenge today is to study the Eihwaz/Eoh Rune.   How do you think you can you apply this rune in your life?
