YULE MAGICK

The Yule season is full of magic, much of it focusing on rebirth and renewal, as the sun makes its way back to the earth. Focus on this time of new beginnings with your magical workings!

 

TRADITIONS


In some traditions of Wicca and Paganism, the Yule celebration comes from the Celtic legend of the battle between the young Oak King and the Holly King. The Oak King, representing the light of the new year, tries each year to usurp the old Holly King, who is the symbol of darkness. Re-enactment of the battle is popular in some Wiccan rituals.

The ceremonial Yule log was the highlight of the Solstice festival. In accordance to tradition, the log must either have been harvested from the householder's land, or given as a gift... it must never have been bought. Once dragged into the house and placed in the fireplace it was decorated in seasonal greenery, doused with cider or ale, and dusted with flour before set ablaze by a piece of last years log, (held onto for just this purpose). The log would burn throughout the night, then smolder for 12 days after before being ceremonially put out. Ash is the traditional wood of the Yule log. It is the sacred world tree of the Teutons, known as Yggdrasil. An herb of the Sun, Ash brings light into the hearth at the Solstice.

It is the longest day on the calendar, come and celebrate this joyous season with all of our Pagan and Wiccan Sisters and Brothers

 

*PLEASE NOTE THE RITUAL WILL START PROMPTLY AT 3:15pm PLEASE TRY TO BE ON TIME

    I think fewer pictures could have been taken -having someone snap away every 2 minutes got a bit distracting in the middle of ritual. I also wish members made a greater effort to mingle and introduce themselves to first timers.

      That is why we had the potluck afterwards.
      We like to do the ritual first and socialize after.
      When we rent a space our time is limited
