Yule and 2012

Best Wishes for Yule and 2012

Elen of the ways, whose her Reindeer antlers injects a well known element in the Christmas theme, also has red her and a green cape, two 'traditional colours' for this season . Thereafter things are pagan, the low winter sun out at sea will from now on until the next solstice produce longer days in the reign of the Oak king. Such are the inspirations behind my seasonal e card for this year, drawn from the parent painting 'Elen of the ways, the Antlered Goddess' and I do indeed wish all our members a merry Yule/Christmas/Midwinter and all the best in 2012!

...and so it's December


December has arrived, with it the white snow of Holda comes, and a new round of natural selection will come too, so it is. The Holly King will give way to the Oak King at the Solstice, that shortest day of the year is the Sabbat Yule, and the cycle goes on. Pagans will celebrate the full moon, this one known to many as 'Long nights moon' and the evergreen conifers will decorate homes as the Yule tree where the yule logs burn.
