Day Twelve! — 2012 Great Release Challenge! by Silver RavenWolf copyright 2012
We are almost at the midpoint of our Release Program! First on the agenda today is reviewing our Wish List. Since many of you have done quite a few of these items, let’s make a new one. Take a walk through your living or working environment and make note of what you want to remove, change, donate, or upcycle. Now that you have a practiced eye because you’ve been working through the program every day (or as best you can) you may want to change some things on the list, mark off those you have already done, and add new ideas to your wish list. Burn the old list.
The New Moon is on Thursday at 3:42 AM EST (12:42 AM PST). Since most of us won’t be up with the chickens, let’s plan on doing some type of working (that suits you) tonight (after 9:00 PM EST, 7:00 PM PST). The New Moon is in Sagittarius and lends itself very well to workings with the fire element. Sagittarius is a mutable sign (meaning it enjoys change). An excellent moon for magicks involving social interaction, travel, higher education, court issues, etc. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, rules the happy-dancing-Sagittarius. Jupiter is definitely the planet of Good Fortune and Blessings. Red, Gold, and Purple might be your color choice.
This New Moon ushers in several energy shifts that may be reflected in your own life. Mercury is in Sagittarius, bringing mental expansion and optimism, while the New Moon is Sagittarius bolsters our confidence. This magnetically powerful New Moon is great for starting something that is important to you. Uranus turns direct on the same day, which means all those frustrations you’ve been dealing with and delays you’ve faced in the past five months should finally melt away. With Uranus moving direct, it is time to focus on the new and the innovative in your life. If you’ve been needing a bit of love in your life, Venus moves into Sagittarius on Saturday, giving wonderful opportunity for the spicier side of love, marriage, and partnership.
With this information in mind, your mental challenge involves planning a personal ritual focused on your goals that you will perform sometime today (best in the evening). Try incorporating your Sea of Potential exercise within the ritual if you like. Share this ritual, or elements of it, with us. The more ideas, the merrier! It is, Sagittarius, after all!
Your Physical Mission Today: Finish Open Holiday Projects
Today’s physical challenge is to complete those last minute touches on holiday activities. Whether you need to check your scheduling (or make one), purchase items or set up for a party or dinner you are hosting, add those finishing touches on a gift, wrapping presents, taking the kids to see Santa, setting up the train around the Yule tree, arranging supplies for goodie baking, running food to the local food bank, donating items to the shelter of your choice… (the list can be endless) or, if you are following this blog from the southern hemisphere, today is an excellent day to tie up outdoor projects OR clean up the yard.
Tomorrow: Sports and Exercise areas and equipment
1. Do Your Morning Braucherei Ritual and light your goal candle. 2. Continue to Work with the Sea of Potential Affirmation. 3. Write and perform your New Moon Ritual. 4. Finish Open Holiday Projects OR work outside if you are in the Southern Hemisphere 5. Get Ready for Tomorrow!
Give yourself one gold star if you did today’s physical Holiday/Outdoor Challenge. Two gold stars if you also practiced the mental Happy Town visualization exercise. Three gold stars if you managed to catch up and do something you missed from the day before. Four gold stars if you completed something on your old Wish List and made a new one . Five Gold Stars if you kept up your Speed Cleaning Exercises. Six Gold Stars if you wrote and performed your personal New Moon Ritual. Remember, for every seven gold stars you earn, you get to treat yourself with something special!
Peace with the Gods Peace with Nature Peace Within.
So be it.
