3 And here we are again! Blessed Be Our Yule! on Fri Dec 08, 2017 4:09 pm

Winter Solstice, the return of the sun, by any name, Yule begins on Mother Night. 


Yule herbs: Holly, Mistletoe, Rosemary, Oak, Pine Cones


Yule colors: Red, White, Green, Gold


Yule offerings: Cream, Beer, Bread, Cakes, Ciders


Yule honors Hades/Pluto, Odin, Frigg/Frigga, Skadhi, Thrym, Uller, Crone, Auriel/Uriel, Hag, Nyx/Nox.


An ancient tradition is the Yule log, usually a large oak log decorated with fir, holly or yew. These were carved with runes asking the great Gods to protect them from evil and misfortune. 


Make your own Yule log using pieces of apple, birch or oak. Drill holes for the 3 candles of the Triple Goddess, red for bloodshed of birth, white for innocence of new life and green for the growth process. 


Decorate with greens, wild rose hips and winter berries. Insure good fortune and prosperity by anointing with a sprinkle of apple cider. Dust with corn meal before lighting the candles and be sure to return the wood chips and sawdust to the earth. Save a piece of the log to protect the home during the coming year and light next year’s fire.


The ancients would decorate the tree with symbols representing the sun, moon and stars, along with pieces of food, small statues of the Gods and carved runes. These were used to entice the spirits of the trees to come back in the spring and be fruitful.




Here is an old recipe for Wassail




Heat a large container of ale or beer, about 3 or 4 pints. Add:
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup mixed spice (cinnamon sticks and whole cloves are also excellent)
2 or 3 small sweet apples, cut up
1 1/4 cup pineapple juice
1 1/4 cup orange juice
the juice of 2 lemons
Place over a slow flame; then, before it begins to boil, take off the heat and whip up some cream. Let this float on top of the brew like foam.
Put in a suitably large bowl (the more ornate the better)




Magical associations:




apples – love, health, peace


pineapple – healing, money, protection & love 


lemons – love, happiness & purification


cinnamon – love, psychic awareness & money


sugar – love




Note:
This is just a quick view of Yule 2017
