Cinnamon
Clove

Bayberry

 

I can smell the fragrance of cinnamon clove and orange coming from the kitchen and filling the air around the house

Cinnamon and Clove represent the spices which were given as gifts to the Christ Child by the Wise Men and are associated with Protection and Prosperity

Oranges connect you with the Sun and they are excellent to use in Spells for Love and Good Luck

Bayberry will attract to you Good Fortune into the New Year

Light a Bayberry candle on Christmas night and again on New Year’s Eve night to bring in that Good FortunedividerCHRISTMAS/YULE TREE

The tree is always some type of pine since they remained green during the dead of winter and therefore became a magickal token of the season symbolizing eternal life ~ strength ~ hope ~ promise

Bringing the tree indoors to be adorned with ornaments

As you decorate your tree think of the true meaning of each ornament

Ornaments shaped like Nuts or Fruits represent the coming season of abundance

Angels Stars and Lights are symbols of Heaven and Light

Glass Balls and Witch Balls repel evil

Holly used for Protection

Berries represent Life

Ivy Protection

Mistletoe Love

The greens shaped into a wreath becomes a symbol of Eternity

After enjoying your greenery and after the season is over remove the greens and burn them to cleanse your homedividerSHARE YOUR LIGHT

During this time we share our Light by giving gifts

We are Energy
We are Light
We are Divine

As the days grow colder and the hours of daylight dwindle the Earth becomes barren

Those winter nights are long but it is a time to leave the darkness and move towards the light

A time of wonder comfort and joy

Messages of a Spiritual Path of hope ~ faith ~ giving and sharing to be renewed

Focusing on the orginal reasons for the season

And hopefully this Holiday you’ll be able to decorate your space with feeling and magickal intent with the Symbols of the Seasonwitchs___YULE
