The Sun now approaches its lowest point on The Wheel. At Yule, even The Sun dies. But like many deities, Death is not The End, and after three days, a miracle takes place.
This Quarter-Day festival season known by Pagans, Heathens, and Witches as Yule. But it is recognized by nearly every belief system, philosophy and spiritual practice in the Northern Hemisphere.
Pagans, Heathens, and Witches also know Yule as The Long Night and Mother’s Night.
In this Yule Livestream we leave the abundance of Fall and head into the desolation and expanse of the Winter Sabbats Yule (Dec 21) and Imbolc (Feb 2). The work of Yule season focuses on the stop and start of Winter. At this time of year we get a chance to cease and begin again.
Hundreds of deities celebrate holy days at this time of year. Much of the symbolism we work with centers around the death and resurrection of The Sun.
For Many Pagans, this day marks the death of The Holly King and the birth of The Oak King. It also marks the formal rise of a form of The Goddess known as The Crone.
Yule is the deep heart of the wintertime #UnderworldJourney. Learn how to connect to the Archetypes and Spirits of Winter and make the most of our collective hibernation, using Winter’s season of stillness as an opportunity to stop, reset ourselves, and start again.
But our Yule work isn’t done after one night!
We’ll take a look at what we can expect for the coming 6-7 weeks of Yule season. We will learn how to observe this time of stillness and resurrection for yourself or with your community. And get ready to Do The Work.
Grab a friend, a journal or some art supplies, maybe make a pot of tea and a snack, and settle in. I also encourage folks to create sacred space for themselves by lighting a candle and/or some incense. You might also include magical tools like Tarot and your natal chart.
