So begins the longest night of the year, and a brief moment of looking backward and forward simultaneously. Yule is a time for gathering and sharing the warmth of loved ones, and for moments of introspection and reflection of the past year. Also during this time, we begin planning by setting intentions and goals for continued success in the new year to come.
Light the wick of this candle from the fires of your Yule log, and it will not only warm your gathering, but it will also shed light on areas of future opportunity.

NOTE ON INTENTION:
Most importantly, when doing any spell work or meditation, intention is the key factor. Concentrating intently on what you want to achieve while staring into the flame of your candle, or taking in the scents with your eyes closed, will bring wisdom once your work is complete. With this wisdom and newfound knowledge, you will be empowered to make unwavering decisions or accept the peace and solitude in which you seek.
