Йольский кот.Йоль—один из самых больших кельтских праздников.В языческой культуре считали,что зимнее солнцестояние, в время которого и самая длинная ночь,и самый короткий день—это день рождества молодого бога.Правда, напоминает Рождество?Исландских детей измальства пугают Йольским котом.Это животное—это мифический образ,мифологический герой, который приходит в дом под Рождество.Именно Йольский кот тех детей,которые за год отличились не в лучшем виде (сильно проказничали, были непослушными, хулиганили) может забрать с собой или съесть.А вот послушным деткам кот приносит подарки.Йольский кот огромный,очень пушистый и до безобразия прожорливый.Еще он разгуливает по ночам и хватает лентяев (кроме непослушных детей).Именно на них Кот охотится и уверенно отличает бездельников и лоботрясов от всех других людей.Ведь ленивые люди всегда встречают праздник в старой одежде.Кто не пошил,не наткал, тому нечего одеть нового в праздник.А это значит,что все,кто не приобрел к празднику Йоля новую шерстяную одежку,достанутся в добычу Йольскому Коту.Их-то он поймает и съест!Поверье об опасном и страшном чёрном коте было впервые записано в XIX веке.По фольклорным рассказам,Йольский Кот живёт в горной пещере со страшной людоедкой Грилой,которая похищает непослушных и капризных детей,с её супругом—лентяем Леппалуди,их сыновьями Йоласвейнарами, они же исландские Деды Морозы. По более поздней версии сказки, более гуманной, Йольский Кот забирает только праздничные угощения.Происхождение мифологического существа—Йольского кота, отчасти, связано с традициями исландского быта.Овцеводство всегда занимало главное место в хозяйстве у исландцев.Производство сукна из овечьей шерсти было, по сути,семейным промыслом: после того,как осенью постригли овец,все члены семьи берутся за обработку шерсти.Обычно,работа была завершена к Святкам,когда в стране проходили ярмарки.Из этого сукна делалась зимняя одежда для всей семьи.По обычаю,каждому члену семьи ткались носки и варежки.И получалось,что тот, кто хорошо и усердно работал до Святок,получал обновку,а бездельники оказывались у разбитого корыта.Чтобы мотивировать детей к работе,родители стращали их появлением Йольского кота!

My small kitchen altar looks so cosy 😍 Because I have rats, I can't burn incense on my altar which is in my same room as the rats. Having this little space in the kitchen makes me so happy, I really love incense and especially around Yule I love smells like pine, cinnamon or honey. What are your favourite incense smells? . . . . . . #wiccanaltar #kitchenaltar #kitchenwitchery #witchcraft #incense #yulealtar #yule #incenseburner #pinetrees #pinebranch #afterlight #deutschlandshexen #yuletree #magick #occultism #paganism #witchesofinstagram
How he longs to be  Beneath his dreaming tree  Conquered fear to climb  A moment froze in time  When the girl who first he kissed  Promised him she'd be his  Remembered mother's words  There beneath the tree (Dreaming Tree - Dave Matthews Band) . . . . #greencathedral #thinplaces #paganism #gypsiesoul #hiking #nature #mountains #Rockies #rockymountains #wildfolk #explorecanada #Albertaviews #abparks #travelalberta #kananaskis #wanderlust #greatnorthcollective #capturecalgary #yyc #yycphotographer #photography

"Live your earthly life fully, but try to see the spiritual aspects of your activities as well.

We are but a child of the mist. . . As I walked through the foggy rainy forest yesterday, I felt the most calm I’ve felt in weeks. Comforted by the water. Ideas and inspiration arose, new life came to light. And I reflected on the significance of our divine water. This deep connection we have towards the sacred liquid of our Mother Earth, for we are, water beings. Our bodies are made up mostly of water. We cannot live without her, our cycles cannot exist without her. We cannot and our trees and earth cannot remain alive and nourished without her. I thought of how we can perceive this in a literal sense, as we can literally see our reflection in water. She is our mirror, reflecting back to us that we are her. We are one in the same. And through her, we are all connected. . . We see this significance in our mythology, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that our Norns who weave the fate of humans, sit at Urðarbrunnr, the well of water at the roots of Yggdrasil. The water in this well keeps the mightly Yggdrasil (connector of all) alive and green. I like to think that as the Norns spin and weave, they are staring into their reflection in the well, turning to the life force - the water, allowing her to guide their weaving hands of fate. Bringing to light the inspiration and messages they need as they water the roots and thus continue the cycles. . . Ash I know standing, named Yggdrasill, a lofty tree, laved with limpid water: thence comes dew that in dales fell; stands always over the green Urd’s well. ~ Völuspá. . . In this photo I am wearing my Fern Green wool dress, my Coal Black wool hangerock and my Steel Gray wool hood. I was kept very warm and cozy amongst the cold rains.

The Norse God Mani. (Mah-nee) God of the moon. In Norse belief the God of the Moon has male energy. Every night Mani rises pulling the moon in his chariot, being chased by a wolf, Hati. Whenever the wolf gets too close, a lunar eclipse is said to take place. Mani doesn’t travel alone; He has two companions on His nightly journey: a girl named Bil and a boy named Hjuki. These children are brother and sister and once had a very cruel father. Mani observed them being mistreated and came to steal them away. They now accompany and assist Him on His nightly journey. When I work with my readings, if Mani comes up, it is a reminder that time is of the essence. Take some time out and learn more about Mani. Cleary he cares for children and their well being. Although he is considered more unstable than his sister Sol, he does light up the night sky with his reflexrive brilliance. Perhaps we can talk of her one day, and why they are banished to a life of pulling the moon and the sun.... #ensamvargrunicmysteries #vitki #tarotcards #learntherunes #runereadings #bindrune #amulet #talisman #pagan #paganism #heathen #norsegods #shaman #shamanic #nature #spiritguides #fairies #spiritworld #spiritanimal #intuition #healing #transformation #viking #odin #freyja #northernways #galdr #asatru #vikings #healing #spirit #transformation

I did my first ever tarot reading on myself yesterday. The accuracy scared me, honestly haha. I spent so long tracing the cards and waiting until I felt 100% that the card i pulled was the card i **needed** to pull. Aren’t my pagan cat tarot cards the cutest?? 🐱🖤🌙 Do any of you have experience with tarot card reading? Do you do a ritual before and after?

"The Goddess doesn't enter us from outside; she emerges from deep within. She is not held back by what happened in the past. She is conceived in consciousness, born in love, and nurtured by higher thinking. She is integrity and value, created and sustained by the hard work of personal growth and the discipline of a life lived actively in hope." ~Marianne Williamson⁣ ⁣ Absolutely beautiful quote!⁣ ⁣ #goddess #divinefeminine #wordstoliveby #femalepower#magick #witch #witchcraft #witchesofinstagram #pagan #paganism #pagansofinstagram #wicca #wiccansofinstagram #inspiration #inspirational #quotestoliveby #witchy #goddesses #witches #wordsofwisdom #goodvibes #positiveenergy
It’s that time of year again! Spending my morning sending out promo postcards! 500 postcards doesn’t seem like a lot until you’re writing addresses and stamping 😩😭 I’m going to be writing a short series on self promotion for artists/illustrators that will be available for free on Patreon.

🔥 ES: Aquí tenéis un fragmento de lo que ocurrió hace dos semanas en Villaviciosa de Odón. Fue un placer volver a acompañar a Aranzazu Serrano Lorenzo presentando su libro "El azor y los cuervos" de la saga @neimhaim. Sin duda, un momento muy especial para nosotros, pues ha sido nuestra primera actuación con la formación definitiva del grupo, estrenando la canción que compusimos inspirada en el libro. Que las hilanderas sigan uniendo nuestros destinos durante mucho tiempo. 🔥 . 🔥 EN: This is a fragment of our show from two weeks ago. It was great for us to show live our song for book 'El azor y los cuervos', from @neimhaim.
