Yule Correspondences

Today’s Yule blog is a simple but important one that we’ll be using to build on a number of posts for the next week dealing with making incense and oils for Yule as well as creating spells and rituals for the Yule season.  Having your correspondences together means spell crafting and creating items for your rituals will be easier and a little less stressful.  No need to run around looking for lists of herbs and crystals when you can have them in one nice, simple place.  Take this list of correspondences and print them out and have them on hand.  Place them in your Book of Shadows or keep a copy on your computer and use them for crafting your rituals this Yule

    Very nice. I'm still surprised by the fact that some people are, um… surprised that pork is a Winter Solstice food.
