Yuletide Blessings To You!


Tomorrow will be Yule! A Sabbath which brought hope of new beginnings to our ancestors. When they were reminded that once again, the sun will rise and longer days are to come. Many of us celebrate this joyous Sabbath in many different ways, but one thing remains the same, and it is the joy that we share with each other and the hope of a new year filled with promise.

Yule is here and now we must take some time to honor all of the experiences and lessons that we have  learned this past year. For me personally, this year have been very challenging and at the same time I have experienced spiritual growth and for that, I am thankful and I feel blessed. As the Sun is reborn again, Venus is at her highest position in the heavens calling us to commune with her during this special time. As she goes retrograde for the next 40 days, it gives us the proper time for inward and outward reflection on where we have been, where we are and where we want to be. During this time of reflection we can also figure out how we can be of better service those around us and our role in our families and communities. She is granting us the time to make proper plans for this upcoming year and with Saturn’s presence we feel compelled to let go of what no longer serves us. In other words this is the perfect time to come up with our New Year Resolutions! 🙂 There is no better time than now to honor our Great Mother as well as our Great Father for all the blessings they bring into our lives.


As the Oak King regains control of the seasons once again and the days grow longer and warmer, he brings with him the hope of new life that we all need during our dark times. Things will get better and abundance will return once again to the land. May you be merry on this special day and may the magic of this day lasts you the whole year through!

This is the perfect time to make and charge a Peace and Harmony Herb blend as well as Happy Family blend for future spell work. My personal blend recipes are below, in case you want to craft them. If you don’t have all of the herbs it is ok, just use what you have. While you are blending the herbs together have a clear intent of what attributes you want to activate and bring forth into the blend and the goal of the blend itself.

Peace and Harmony Herbal Blend – the intent is to bring peace and harmony to a situation, place or person

  • Marjoram – Love and happiness
  • Lavender – Love, happiness and peace
  • St. John’s Wort – Happiness, love and protection
  • Violet – Love and peace
  • Vervain – Love and Peace
  • Blue lace Agate – Peace, happiness and love (I always like to add a stone)

Happy Family Herb Blend – the intent is to bring abundance, joy, healing, love and passion to the family

  • Allspice- Abundance, luck, healing
  • Angelica – Child protection, peace in home, faith in marriage, protection and strength for women (let’s face it, we are usually the ones that are holding everything together)
  • Lavender – Love, Protection, happiness, peace
  • Marjoram – Protection, love, happiness, health, money and relieves depression
  • Nutmeg – Luck, attracts money and fidelity.
  • Vervain – Love, protection, peace,healing
  • High John – Love, success and happiness
  • Gold Lodestone stone – to attract love, protection and prosperity (I always like to add a stone or two)
  • Pink Quartz – unconditional love and love in the family

Wishing you a very merry Yule and may the new year bring you blessings abound!

Aspects of Yule

Time of deepest darkness
The God is born anew
Seedling in the frozen earth
Awaiting springtime dew.

The ground, an icy wasteland,
Though neighbors hearts are warm
We share our goods with everyone
So no one comes to harm.

Snow lies on her shoulders
Frosted mantle for her hair
Winter’s Queen is giving birth
The Goddess, always there

The sun is growing brighter.
It happens every year
Promising return of light
For sod and oak and deer

Stag King, his mighty antlers
Rising from a drift
Leaps for the hunter’s arrow
Just as strong and swift

He knows his time has ended
He is heading to the plain
Where joy caresses memory
Like softly summer rain

New fawn takes his first step,
The buck he will become.
After the time of knowing
A new year has begun.
