12 Days of Yule - Day 10 Sacred to Sol and the Light

I apologize for not getting to post yesterday. Yesterday was the 10th day of the Yule season, it is sacred to the Norse goddess of the sun Sol (or Sunna) and the growing light.

Even though the nights are still long, this day reminds us that the light will continue to grow. Sol is the sister of the Moon god Mani and drives her chariot across the sky carrying the sun on its daily journey.
Today we celebrate not only the growing light, but what brings light to our lives. It's a good day to think about the things that bring us joy. Are there fun activities or creative projects that you have put aside? Maybe you could make plans to include them in your goals for the new year to come.

The virtue for the day is Justice. Fairness is important to a sense of well being. Are we being fair and just in our dealings with others? Do we stand up for ourselves when we are treated unfairly or when we see injustice in the world around us? How can we add to making the planet better and contribute to increasing the "light"
in the world?

  1. I have never lived in a country where it is really cold and dark at winter, so I have never experienced the fear summer will not come! But I do love the image of candles burning in the darkness reminding us of this!
