1st Quarter Moon in Capricorn (its all about structure) moves to Moon in Aquarius where it is all about determination and innovation!
Monday – Moon Planetary Ruler
Your Challenge Today – Door Knobs – cleanse every doorknob in the house – replace or repair if necessary. Be sure to wash the door around the knob. If you are super energetic – wash all the doors (both sides) and follow with blessing. Draw runic or planetary charms or sigils on each door with holy water – “light up” those charms by using a lit candle to spark the work. Blow on the sigil/charm with your breath 3 times to seal.
Chamber door, knob, and lock Seconds, minutes, tick and tock Protect within the bad keep out Prithee door, be strong and stout!
Think about it. Everyone touches the doorknob! When you cleanse and bless the doors and doorknobs in your home, you remove stored negativity left there from every member of the household.
Consider decorating the doors with herbal sachets and other physical charms. With Command brand door hooks, handles and knobs there is no end to your magickal creativity!
I was curious about the history of the doorknob and found this on a quick search:. The first documentation of the invention of a doorknob was in 1878. The U.S. Patent Office received a submission made for improvements on a door-closing device by an African American inventor named Osbourn Dorsey. (1)

My Progress – The weekend was busy for me! It started with my Poppet Magick Seminar on Friday night at Inner Connections in New Cumberland. We had a lot of fun and I enjoyed watching the energy of the group mind as it progressed from singular energy patterns to a combined, pulsating matrix of creativity. Laughter, singing, and light-hearted merriment made the poppet seminar a pleasurable experience for all. We used my Good Spirits herbal formula and Talking Head herbal powder to stuff their creations. Doing this seminar at the store was great because participants could pick their own gemstones from Inner Connections’ large selection of tumbled stones. This way, folks could tailor their creations to their specific needs with blessings from Earth Mother.
Saturday I played catch-up with some of my Great Release tasks. I cleaned the oven — blah! bleck! yuck! The laundry room took me a lot longer than I thought it would (I use it as a storage area) and I had to space it over two days because of my busy schedule. I had no idea I had so many plastic containers – sheesh! I also cleaned out the washer and vacuumed the lint trap in the dryer. Clothes lint is a fire hazard. It can build up and ignite over time. Even though I clean the lint trap with every dryer load, I like to clean the trap inside the dryer and the outside vent about twice a year.
From there I moved to the kitchen and cleaned the “baking” cabinet. Then made puppy cookies for Wednesday’s Great Release post and human chocolate chip cookies for the family. Since I cleaned the cabinet that holds all my baking supplies, I figured I should use some of them!
My reward this weekend was buying a set of British mystery movies (so love them!)
