yule

Wassail! It’s all about Yule!

Yule, Yuletide, Hjol, Jol, is one of the eight pagan Sabbats. It is a great festival of gift giving and welcoming back the warmth of the sun and of course, figuratively and literally, letting go of all the darkness. Yule brings with its festivities a deep psychological change in every pagan, and the ritual usually allows safe space for letting go and climbing a step higher toward our true selves. 

The Altar

The altar is first in the soul, then in the heart, then in the material, it is only then that the altar can jolt the mind to chant the invocations necessary to bring it to life.
