Yule Log Magick  

Posted in

The Yule log brings warmth and light on this Yule Eve, and represents the birth of a new solar year on the Winter Solstice. Burning the Yule Log is one of the oldest magickal rituals. You can make and burn this Yule log with your family and friends.


You will need a beeswax candle, an oak, cedar, or birch log, a fireplace or woodstove, cedar, holy and pine branches, and green, red and white ribbon.


Begin by drawing a magic circle around the room and fireplace or woodstove, and then call in the elements. Next, light the candle, dedicating it to the Mother Goddess and Father God. Tie the cedar, holly and pine branches around the log with green, red and white ribbon.
As you do this, say:

Blessed Yule log of plenty
Bring us good luck and good health
And divine prosperity, blessed be!

Now drip some of the wax from the candle on the log.
As you do, repeat:

Blessed Yule log of plenty
Bring us good luck and good health
And divine prosperity, blessed be!

Before putting the log into the fire, place your hands over the Yule log and say this prayer:

Dear Goddess and God
On this Eve of Yule, I pray you
Please grant us the gifts
Of good health and good luck
And divine prosperity
May the divine spirits shine brightly
With each new year and every day
In the Lady and Lord's name, Blessed be!

Enjoy the warmth and light of the Yule fire. Before you go to sleep, thank the Goddess and God, bid farewell to the elements, and close the circle.


Tomorrow morning, take some of the ashes from your fireplace or woodstove and scatter them clockwise around the outside of your home, including your front and back doors, to bring you and your family good luck, good health and prosperity. Offer the remains of the beeswax candle to the earth.
