Here at Kate’s Magik the Yule altar is set, the candles are lit and the Frankincense and Myrrh is burning. As we descend on the final days of darkness we are ready to transform and set our intentions for the new year ahead
The holy Yule season begins with the Winter Solstice on December 21st, when the darkness finally gives way to the light. The Winter Solstice and Yule have been recognized and observed by many cultures all over the world since the beginning of humankind. It is a significant point in the wheel of the year that denotes the simultaneous end and new beginning of a cycle. December 21st is the darkest and the longest night of the year, as the days that follow are indicative of the sun’s rebirth and return towards our planet earth! It marks the final day of the waning half of the year and that light, warmth and growth will once again embrace us as the year waxes toward the peak; the Summer Solstice. This is the time of merry and magic where we celebrate rebirth, renewal, transformation and the return of the light. The Winter Solstice and Yule is celebrated in a myriad of different ways: Yule or Christmas or Hanukkah trees, lights and candles, Yule logs and other special foods, altars and rituals that help us begin anew, and gifts of gratitude and appreciation. A Yule Ritual can be a powerful way to create personal shifts and set intentions for the year ahead.
The Kate’s Magik tribe wishes you a magical Solstice Season! May this holiday time be filled with light, love, songs, community and gifts. But may we also remember the ancient, sacred celebration of Winter Solstice, which is that of renewal, peace, gratitude and intention setting. May the Spirit of Yuletide shine within and around us throughout the year, as the Wheel of the Seasons continues to turn.
