If you’re unfamiliar to Yule, it is the annual Pagan celebration of the Winter Solstice. Many Wiccans also mark it as the rebirth of the Great horned hunter god. The event historically was celebrated with candles, bonfires, and/or the burning of the yule log. Since Yule is a celebration of the sun returning or being reborn, sources of light are a major part. People would then get together around the fire, share meals, and exchange gifts. The Yule holiday and traditions still continue today and are celebrated and mirror by many cultures and religions around the world.
If you’re following Yule tradition, your celebration will likely include a delicious, pot-luck type meal and an exchange of gifts. But what should you get for those you love during Yuletide? We asked some of our favorite Wiccans and pagans and here are the results!
This is definitely a stocking that should be hung above the fireplace with care. The Blessed Be Pagan Christmas Stocking comes in both black and purple and it features various pagan and witchy design motifs. The red trim and loop for hanging add the perfect touch of Christmas. While this stocking can be a wonderful gift for anyone, our gift guide team really liked this idea for a Pagan friend who celebrates Christmas with their non-Pagan family. Add a touch of what you love and believe in all festival celebrations!
This long-sleeved Christmas sweatshirt/shirt comes in several colors and is the perfect Yule attire. While we know this is a gift list, we wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to sneak one of these for yourself to wear to the celebration!

However, this powerful sabbat signifies more than just the physical changes happening on the earth around us and also brings our attention to the light and new changes that are beginning to grow within us.

Making Valentine’s extra special can be tricky sometimes, especially if we are not particularly crafty and are sporadically busy. While this may be true, the great thing about love is it finds a way. It always finds its way. Isn’t it fascinating how some people can pull off a grande surprise out of letters and papers? While some can cook a really good meal and some just know the exact perfect place to go. While some people, like me at times, can’t make up their minds.
And because of these factors, I’ve learned to focus on what I do best - Gift-giving. Yes, there are people like me who are best at giving gifts. And who knows, you’re just like me. For me, gift-giving is a form of art. It expresses someone in a way that manifests beauty such as love. It is a reservoir of a million thoughts, consideration and most importantly sincerity. So if you’re considering getting some gifts, you’re in the perfect place at a perfect time! Because, we have hand-picked the best gifts from our store that you can give to your lover or loved ones on this special day.

There’s no doubt about it; 2021 was a year full of change and transformation for everyone. However, instead of continuing to live in the hard times that it brought, it’s finally time to say goodbye to the old and embrace change with the new year of 2022. With that said, we will be kicking off the new year lingering in the sign of the Capricorn, pushing many of the signs towards a renewal of creative energy and new beginnings, which is bound to bring a refreshing change into our lives. This will be happening alongside the influence of Jupiter, which will be moving through the sensitive Pisces. As the planet of expansion, Jupiter will inspire us to move beyond our restrictions and channel a deeper, more sentimental approach to life that could have us reflecting a lot on our emotions. As a result, this will likely have all the signs feeling a need to slow down and disconnect for a while, and honestly, some slow movement may not be such a bad idea right now.
Aside from this, Venus also went into retrograde on December 19th, 2021, and will remain that way until January 29th, 2022. Since Venus is known to be the planet of love, when it is retrograde, energies can be a little uncertain for lovers. This could either stir communicational issues between partners or, surprisingly, pull partners closer. Either way, you’ll have to navigate the situation carefully, as all emotions, good and bad, are bound to be heightened. However, Venus isn’t the only planet going retrograde right now, as we will also be moving into Mercury retrograde again starting January 13th, which is bound to have the signs revisiting past emotional issues again. However, don’t see this as a burden, as this is actually an excellent opportunity to reflect on what energies we wish to take with us into the new year and which we want to leave behind and start making the necessary changes to make it happen. Lastly, we will then hit Aquarius season on January 20th, which will likely have the signs aligning more intimately with personal goals and values.
As you can see, January 2022 is bound to be full of the energies of rebirth, new beginnings, and reflection as we work to embrace the energies of the year, learning to leave the problems of the past year behind us once and for all. However, to give you a better idea of what energy you can feel personally, in this article, we’re going to touch on the changes each Zodiac sign can expect throughout January and how you can better align yourself to truly make the most of it. Let’s get started.
