day29

Penny Day!

2015 Great Release Program
Day 29- December 29 2015
by Silver RavenWolf

Every day you must throw or give something away!

Tuesday

3rd Quarter Moon in Leo (Closure)

Sun Hour for Leo Energy
Mars 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 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?

Silver’s Notes:  After today, only 3 days left in our Challenge!

We are coming in on the home stretch!  Hang in there!  Only 3 days to go!  I am so proud of you!  I actually managed to get that closet finished (much to my husband’s dismay as he eyed the five contractor bags of trash) — however, I am clapping my hands and jumping up and down!  I also made a small, small dent in the craft room — I’ll do my best to get as much completed as I can before we ring in 2016!

Magickal Challenge

Today’s Magickal Challenge is prep for your New Year’s Ritual.  Choose whether you would like to perform it on the eve, or on the day.  This year the Moon is in Virgo and then voids on New Year’s Eve — and is in Libra on New Year’s Day.  You may want to take that information into consideration when planning your ritual.  Start thinking about what you desire for this ritual — Moon is in the 3rd Quarter — Releasing and Clearing.  You may want to use the holiday for personal, spiritual cleansing — out with the old and in with the new!  Don’t forget about the goals we talked about at the beginning of the program.  Finally, we are honoring our hard work with the Release Challenge!  You deserve the best!

Begin gathering your altar setup today (if you haven’t already), so that everything will be at your fingertips when you perform your ritual.  Remember the stick you were going to decorate?  That will be a part of your ritual, too.

Your second magickal challenge today is to study the Thorn/Thurisaz. This is another powerful rune — considered a war fetter.  Use it with great respect.  How do you think you can you apply this rune in your life?

Physical Challenge

Your physical challenge today is super easy!  Prepare your date book or family calendar for the new year!

llewellynplanetaryguide

Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide is my favorite because it shows Moon in the Signs and planetary information that is helpful for ritual and spell planning.  Every year has good fortune days when Jupiter, Venus, and the Sun are well aspected.  I always look for those days at the beginning of the year and circle them.  These are excellent days for rituals of super success or creating potions, conjuring bags, fluid condensers and more for positive influences in your life.  I also highlight Mercury, Mars, or Venus retrogrades when applicable – these are rest periods or times to work on old projects rather than begin anything new.

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.
