Release Week Closure — from Silver RavenWolf and Taco Cat

I’d like to thank everyone that participated in the week-long program this year.  To me, it went extremely well and the 8-day format was something I could handle both in the creation and implementation.  I liked running the program after the holiday season, although I didn’t expect the emotional rollercoaster it presented on various days — which you may have experienced yourselves.  Given that we packed a great deal within just 7 days, with body, mind and soul effort, there was bound to be some fallout — whether it was emotional or event-oriented, due to our hard work.

Our purpose was to “shift” the energies — and we surely did that!

The most successful portion of this year’s program, I think, was the Need Dolly — called by some participants the “Needy Dolly” (which I rather liked because the title spoke on many levels).  As I am currently finishing up a spirit doll book, I will be adding the Needy Dolly to the work along with our experiences from this program with that particular magickal vehicle.  The Needy Dolly?  I consider her the Magickal Boots on the Ground for this season’s release program!

Releasing the Need Dolly in ritual circle.

In other areas of my life, I actually managed to finish my offensive closet — which had escaped my repeated efforts on several occasions in the past three months.  I was able to donate 10 bags of clothing, and clean out the bedroom closet as well, along with the other daily tasks.  All junk drawers are cleared (we won’t share how many I actually have — it will be our little enchanted secret).   On the uplifting and magickal task-oriented side of life this past week, I created two new “dollies” which will also be in the spirit doll book.

Taco Cat and I thank you so much for your interest in the program this year!  The energy was fantastic and we could feel the participants working all over the world!  Sweden, France, England, Australia, Canada and more — it was a pleasure to be with all of you!  Taco Cat and I will put together another program — perhaps for MidSummer?  Until then, I have Taco Cat buckled up for a road trip!  We’re going to have a little fun and catch us some Pokemon!

Release Week – Day 5 – Tuesday #silverravenwolf

Tuesday 17 January 2017
3rd Quarter Moon in Libra
Mars Day

Today’s Goal – One or more Closets
Don’t Forget Your Main Goal

Closet Day is the perfect day to bag up old clothes for charity.  We often donate to Purple Heart Veterans Service Foundation.

A Mars Day is all about movement and motivation!  If the moon is waxing, then the day is best spent building and moving forward.  If the moon is waning, like it is today, then we want to use that energy to remove blocks and open the way for opportunity.  From releasing negative thought patterns to shoveling out the closet and removing ALL the clutter – this is a day to move, move, move in the right direction!  Burn a RED candle today and ask the element of fire to help you in whatever task is at hand.  May the element of fire give you the passion you need to get the job done!

tacocatmotivationherbsMotivation Magickal Powder

Magickal powders and herbal blends are marvelous vehicles to help your magick along!  Just sprinkle a bit of powder on a candle, in a conjuring bag, or on the doorstep and your ability to affect change revs up a notch!  Taco Cat has an easy super special Success/Motivation powder formula to share with you today!

Chipped Ginger
Whole Allspice
Chipped Cinnamon (optional if you are allergic to it)
Shredded dried hot peppers
1 ounce of Vodka or Grain Alcohol

Allow the herbs to dry thoroughly before grinding.
Allow the herbs to dry thoroughly before grinding.

Place all herbal ingredients in a bowl and clear with bells or prayer.  Pour the alcohol over the ingredients and mix thoroughly — be sure all the herbs are well coated with the alcohol.  Allow the herbs to sit in the alcohol for at least fifteen minutes, then place herbs on a paper towel and dry thoroughly.  When the herbals are completely dry, grind into a powder in the planetary hour of Mars.  Command the herbs to work together in any instance where you call for fast action, motivation, or success.  Seal the working.  Use the herbs immediately, or bottle and store.  This recipe is for magick — not for ingestion.  The powder works extremely well in fire magicks!  Use with Red or Gold candles for extra oomph!


After grinding with mortar and pestle, try using your pestle and grinding the powder again using a fine mesh screen.  This is helpful if you wish the powder to go undetected by others in a working.

Goal Plate — This is a fun magickal idea that is designed for short-term goals.  Let’s say there is something you truly want to get done; but, a compendium of things may be dragging you down, or maybe you, yourself, are creating mental obstacles.  All you need to do this working is:

A plate of your choice — dinner size (but, if you want smaller, that’s okay, too)
An orange — leave on the plate for 24 hours — replace if you desire but remember to only leave food out for 24 hours each time (cover food with netting if you live in an area where bugs are a problem).
A small bowl of dried ground coffee — this can remain on the plate until your goal is complete
A glass of water — replace every day until goal is met
Your goal written on a piece of paper
Items that represent your goal — toys, herbs, stones…whatever…as long as when you look at the item on that plate you associate it with finishing your goal
Candy (an offering for the Gods)

Feed the goal plate every day by changing and charging the water each day until you have completed your goal.  Do not leave food on the plate for more than 24 hours.  Replace food as well if you use it.
Feed the goal plate every day by changing and charging the water each day until you have completed your goal. Do not leave food on the plate for more than 24 hours. Replace food as well if you use it.  This plate has coffee, water, an orange, gumdrop candy, a key for opening all locks and a horse to speed the conclusion of the goal.

Tape your goal on the underside of the plate.  Now, if you live alone and no one will be looking at your plate, you can put your goal on the right side of the plate; however, if anyone else lives in the home or if you have many visitors, tape the goal to the underside of the plate — to be silent is important in this working.

Place all the items listed above in the center of the plate.  Breathe your goal into the fresh water by whispering three times into the water so that your breath infuses the liquid.  Then, blend the energies of the items, commanding them to help you accomplish your goal.  Do this three times.  Finish by stating how happy you will be when you have met your goal, thanking the Universe, and sealing the work with an equal-armed cross drawn in the air over the plate.  Replace the water every day until your goal is met.  Blend the energies every day with the new water and food (if you choose to replace the food as well), commanding the unit of energy you have created to bring about your desire.  Don’t forget to repeat the seal.

Do I Have To Do All You Suggest?

No.  Can’t get much done?  That’s okay — just remember to throw or give one thing away per day– that’s all you need for the successful completion of this program.

May this day bring you the greatest rewards!
