It’s the holiday season. Multiple religions and spiritual groups have some festival around this time. For pagans, this is the festival of Yule.
Yule is celebrated on the Winter Solstice. It is the time of the pagan year to turn inward and reflect. The shortest days are behind us, and as the return of the sun approaches, we recharge our energies for the upcoming months. Ideas begin to emerge on what intentions to set for Imbolc.
This is a time where the water energy of purification, reflection, and deep self-analyzes is present. Tap into water’s healing properties as you take a deep look within yourself to better understand what the endings of the current year and what you need to focus on for the new year ahead.
With Yule being on the longest night of the year, lunar magick is useful to practice at this time.
