YULE DECEMBER 21
On December 21, for the northern half of the planet, the sun appears to circle the earth directly over the Tropic of Capricorn, twenty-three and half degrees south of the Equator. At Winter Solstice, Yule, the theme is of the sun's death and re-birth. On the longest night and shortest day we respect our experiences with darkness and pray for the light.
Time has come to transform your alter for the Sabbat Yule.

Clear the autumn decorations. Drape the alter in a red cloth and trim with pine cones, evergreen boughs, holly and mistletoe.
Dust the candles, as well as the elemental tools, and then return to their proper place.
Adorn your Yule altar with three acorns to increase your magic.

Work your magic that involves your focus candle.
