Each wood you burn for your Yule Log releases its own kind of Magick

ASH: protection/health

ASPEN: understanding

BIRCH: new beginnings

HOLLY: inspires

OAK: wisdom/healing/strength

PINE: prosperity/growth

WILLOW: desire


Set up your Yule Log and light it

Sit quietly by the light of the fire

As the Yule Log begins to burn feel its warmth in your heart

Let your soul be bright

Your mind relaxed

Toss into the flame a sprig or 2 of dried holly ~ juniper berries or mistletoe junipertwigberriesAs the Yule Log starts to blaze the power of possibilities become clear

On a slip of paper write a bad habit or something you want to change or banish from yourself or your life for the up coming New Year

Fold the paper 3x and with what you wrote on that slip of paper in your mind toss it into the flames of the Yule Log

Then do the same with a good wish or something positive you want to add to your life for the New Year

After you write it down on a slip of paper fold it 3x and toss it in the fire of your Yule Log while your thoughts hold your written words deep in your mind

Next whilst the Yule Log is ablaze…

Give everyone or just your solitary self a pine cone that you found walking along your daily path in life

In a park ~ woods ~ backyard wherever

We usually collect pine cones for future use keeping them decorated in a straw basket on a table or stored in a big jar

Then one at a time toss the pine cone into the flames of the Yule Log

This selection has been chosen because it mentions the Solstice ~ change in the solar year ~ the Yule Log

Refreshments are served something festive but simple

A toast of

Mulled Wine
Egg Nog
Hot Tea

A taste of

Finger Sandwiches

…and conversation…🎄…enjoy each other…dance alone by firelight…

Soon your Yule Log will burn down to a few chunks of charred wood and ashes

And to continue to keep in Ancient Tradition we will save the remnants of the fire collect the ash that remains and use it for your winter time spells and save a bit for next year to start the Yule Log the following year

After the flames die down the ash will take a day to completely cool so you can handle the ash

Store it in a glass jarfire-wallpaper-800x600_1YULE FIRE SPELL

On the darkest night of the year gather 3 dried leaves of holly and pulverize them into a powder

On a clean 3×3 inch piece of paper write a single word in red ink that represents what quality would like to be born within yourself along with the new born Yule Sun

Sprinkle the holly powder into the center of the paper right over your word twist the whole thing closed with the holly powder inside

Light the wick of a red candle and from this flame light the holly filled paper on fire

As it burns see your wish fulfilled
