Since the beginning of time we have gathered in this season to celebrate the
rebirth of the Sun. On the Winter Solstice - the darkest of nights the Goddess
becomes the Great Mother and once again gives birth to the Sun beginning the
yearly cycle anew; bringing new light and hope to all the World. On the longest
night of winter flares the spark of hope the Sacred Fire, the Light of the World,
we gather here to welcome the new light. As we join the Goddess in greeting the new Sun, we also welcome the new light within ourselves.
Yule - the Winter Solstice, December 21st and 22nd
Yule is the celebration of the light and the return of the sun on the longest night and shortest
day of the year, when the days begin to lengthen.
Yule represented the moment when the days would again become longer, when light would return to the land, and people had reason to be thankful as spring was on its way, with the birth of new animals, and the softening of the soil for planting.
Think of those who you would send positive energy to: Loved ones perhaps, those in need of
healing or added strength. Perhaps people whose names you do not know, who are living with
war or hunger. You may wish to focus on that which important to you, your values, Perhaps the
earth itself, or the animals who shares it with us What ever it is you wish to send your healing
energy to. As we chant we will build our energy with the turning of the wheel. As you chant feel
the energy of change resonate within you.....
