Reed is typically used to make wind instruments and this time of year, its haunting sounds are sometimes heard when the souls of the dead are being summoned to the Underworld. The Reed Moon was called Negetal, pronounced by the Celtics and is some times referred to as the Elm Moon by modern Pagans. This is a time for divination and scrying. If you’re going to have a seance, this is an excellent month to do it. This month, do magickal workings related to spirit guides, energy work, meditation, celebration of death and honoroing the cycle of life and rebirth

The Celtic Calendar for Sunday, December 23


According to the Celtic tree calendar, December 23rd is the day of the Yew and Silver Fir. In magickal belief, these two trees are said to be sisters. for their foliage look similar. Yet they represent diametrically opposed concepts, the silver fir symbolizing birth and promise, and the yew, death. But because both are evergreen, both also signify the eternal cycle of life: birth, life, death and reincarnation. Yew trees are planted in European graveyards, and probably gained their association with death on account of their poisonous cones. The yew’s hard and flexible wood was also once used to make bows, instruments of death.
