Day Twenty–One- of 2018 Great Release Program – 21 December – Friday
By Silver RavenWolf

2nd Quarter Moon in Gemini – Sun Enters Capricorn – Solstice Energy!

Friday – Venus Planetary Ruler – Carve your name on a pink candle along with the word “Love” – empower for self-love, joy, and personal peace.  Try using the Ten Points of Power exercise previously discussed this week.

Spirit Animal Technique:  The next five days are going to be incredibly busy for many of you, so we want to keep the program as light and as enjoyable as possible.  Do what you can.  Don’t over-do or stress yourself on whether or not the program will succeed if you slack off a bit.  In fact, by now, you will naturally begin to keep things more organized because your inner self acknowledges the change in the energy of your living/working space since you started the program.

To help you cope, from now through the first of the year, I would like you to choose a sacred animal to assist you as you navigate these busy days.  It can be Merry Moose, or it might be another animal of your choice.  If you have no idea, sometimes the first animal you think of when you ask the question of, “Who will help me” works best.

That’s what I did, and I got a giraffe.

Go figure, and I really wanted a llama, or a goat (I think pygmy goats are cute), or… — but, giraffe showed up, so that’s what I’ll be using.  You don’t have to know why the animal appears.  That’s not important.  However, during the process, researching the animal, its needs, habitat, etc. can be very enlightening).  At the moment of introduction, just accept that the universe is sending help in this form — and move forward.  This is not an overthink challenge.  Just be it.  Just do it.  Just enjoy it.

sacredanimals2Here is how your sacred animal will help you:  Any task you look at with stress — invoke your animal by either calling its name OR seeing it in your mind.  Any task at all.  All those, “Today, I have to…””Today I must do.” “I can’t let another day go without taking care of this stupid mess.” “He expects me to do this and I don’t want to let him down”. “I really don’t want to do this shit!” “This is a pain in the bupkiss; but, I have to do it.”  “I can’t believe she would bother me with this crap right now.”  Instead, when the irritation or negativity arises, say, “Help me to see and experience the opportunities that will manifest with the process and completion of this task” — if that is too much of a mouthful, pare it down with words of the same meaning.  You could say, “In this task I find enlightenment.”  Eventually, you won’t need to say the words.  You think of the animal?  Peace and calm settle in, and you just get it done without emotional angst.

In return for the assistance you receive, feed something in nature…birds…deer…plants — whatever suits you.

Try it.

Let me know how this technique works for you.

Your Challenge Today –Perform your Solstice Ceremony/Ritual as close to the event as possible given your schedule.  I realize that some of you will be celebrating tomorrow, and that this solstice ushers in the opposite season – the planets, elements, and the signs; however, are still the same.  Follow the season of your time zone for best results.  If today is not the solstice for you – this is a Catch-Up Day!  A rest day!  Or A Just Have Fun Day!

Remember – No matter what – give or throw something away today.  Release!

  1. Do the Morning Ritual – earn one gold star.
  2. Practice the Rattle Bath/Crystal Cleansing – earn one gold star.
  3. Mark what you accomplished on your Great Release Calendar
  4. Did you remember to invoke your special symbol first thing when you woke up? If you forgot, try again tomorrow, no worries.  At a time you choose today (or close to) focus on your special symbol for 1 minute.  How do you feel?

  12. Do a mental review of your day before you fall asleep – make it quick – don’t let the mind stick.

Day 20 – Great Release Program – Thursday – 20 December 2018 – Silver RavenWolf


day20greatrelease2018Day Twenty- of 2018 Great Release Program – 20 December – Thursday
By Silver RavenWolf

2nd Quarter Moon in Gemini – Raphael is the Angel of Healing and associated with the astrological sign of Gemini – perhaps you would like to pen a petition with black ink on yellow paper.  For an extra boost?  Write your petition in the Planetary Hour of Mercury.

Thursday – Jupiter Planetary Ruler – Light a Purple Candle sprayed with your favorite perfume – sprinkle with sugar for extra sweetness!  Ask the universe for the gift of joy.  Try using the Ten Points of Balance exercise you read about yesterday on this blog.

Your Challenge Today – Prepare your own Winter Solstice Ceremony/Ritual  —   to be performed by you as close to the event as possible given your schedule.  Make sure the area in which you will perform your ceremony is clean, cleansed and blessed.  Group ceremonies do not count.  The private ceremony is to coincide with your Great Release Program goals.

Winter Solstice occurs when the Sun enters the astrological sign of Capricorn.  For folks in the US, that will be on Friday, 21 December — 2:23 PM West Coast/5:23 PM East Coast.  The magick continues to swirl this weekend with the Full Moon (Moon in Cancer Sun in Capricorn) on Saturday 9:40 AM West Coast/12:49 PM East Coast.  Earth and Water elements reign this weekend although Mercury conjuncts Jupiter in Sagittarius on Friday morning bringing the fire of good luck and good fortune if you are open to accept it.  Venus in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces as well – giving a glittering line-up to your personal festivities!  Ursid meteor shower will peak on the nights of December 21 and 22, adding shooting starts to the mix. Creativity and joy can surely be over the top for you!  This weekend is all about positive change, pleasant surprises, and welcoming opportunity.  The Great Release Program is an ongoing process that is supported by this weekend’s astro line-up lending ease, wisdom, and personal fulfillment in the changes you chose at the beginning of this year’s program journey.  An added plus — the constellation Orion, the Hunter, is activated by this Full Moon, lending the energy and opportunities you need to help you accomplish your goals.

On your altar you may wish to have:

An empowered cup of spring water – the focus is joy, personal healing, and fulfillment.  Drink the water during your ceremony.

An arrow or net to help you capture something you are hunting – Success?  Wealth?  Information?  Write what you are looking for around the shaft of the arrow.  Yes, you can use a picture if you don’t have a real arrow.

Something that represents your creativity and is associated with your main program goal.

A white candle.  Begin your ceremony in total darkness, then ask that as the days grow longer and the rays of the sun kissing the earth grow longer that wisdom and good fortune grow in strength in your life.  Light the candle.

Make A Prosperity Cauldron

I’ve posted this before; but, thought some of you may enjoy it for this weekend.  For your holiday dinner centerpiece, why not make a prosperity cauldron as shown in the example below.  Make sure there are plenty of Gingerbread cookies to give one to each guest.  Empower your ginger people for luck, good fortune, and love.  I used an old paint can, cookies I made, and a candle I rolled for good fortune.  Friday is the perfect day to put your centerpiece together.
