A Yuletide & Winter Solstice Ritual

A Yuletide & Winter Solstice Ritual

A Yultide & Winter Solstice Ritual

 

Yule is an ancient holiday that has been celebrated on the Winter Solstice for thousands of years by Germanic cultures, and now by Neo-pagans across the Earth. What's lovely about seasonal celebrations like the Winter and Summer solstices is that it forces us to slow down, create space, and enjoy the moment.

A Brief History on Yule:

The long bearded Norse God, Odin, was known as the Yule Father, and some historic scholars trace Christmas directly back to the name Odin. In Norse Poetry there is a phrase, "Huginn's Yule" which means "A Raven's Feast"! Bet you didn't know we could link Christmas to our beloved witchy Spirit Animal friend the Raven? Well, Odin was regularly informed by his two Ravens, Huginn and Muninn, of the important events and changes taking place all over the world.

What better time than December 2020 to channel this energy! Try this ritual with our Deluxe Yule Ritual Kit:

✨ Create a protective circle around your magical space with salt, and you may draw it with an athame as well. ⁠
✨ Activate all the tools in the kit via the instructions provided.
✨ Create an altar to all the Mothers who have inspired, guided, or cared for you. This can include Gaia, any Goddesses, Celebrity or Mythological Characters, your Family (living and not!), or even males who have provided a Motherly influence for you.
✨ Place an offering of anything shiny out for Odin's Ravens (ravens love shiny things!)⁠
✨ Out loud, acknowledge and thank any of the Mothers you have honored, and you may ask them for help in any area you would like. The Solstice is about the rebirth of the Sun, so if you need more light and guidance, this is a good time to invoke that.
✨ Then you may call Huginn and Muninn to receive their gifts, and ask them for any information or guidance you might like at this time. ⁠
✨ When you’re done, be sure to say that you 'release all of the spirits back to their domains’, and clear your space with sage.⁠
✨ Always try to forget about your ritual so the higher powers are able to move in and help; you’ll be surprised when the help and guidance arrives!

Autumn greetings, everyone! Like many of you, this is my absolute favorite time of the year. When I was in high school, literally every year on October 21st or 22nd, I had some sort of major occurrence or shift happen, and it did not click until much later that the timing coincided with Scorpio season. It’s a season of intensity, death/rebirth, and subterranean passion that anchors us into each other, for better or worse. Coming off of the fall equinox last month, the days are getting darker and we will spend most of October..
