An eighteenth I learned, yet I would never
Let a woman or maid know it,
For everyone knows what’s best for himself-
This leads me to the conclusion of the songs-
The one it shall be then, that lies in my arms
As betrothed wife and as sister.

Thus ends the season of Yule as we prepare for the upcoming year. Take time to remember from whence you came, as well as a time to make plans for the near future. Raise your horn high to honor your gods and ancestors. Honor each other and the inner workings of your relationships. Take oaths on oath rings. Make promises to yourself and others. Hold inventory within yourself or your group so you know your present position in relation to where you want to be. Continue to build the weavings of your Wyrd positively. The luck within you depends on it. Remember, "Luck often enough will save a man (or woman) if his (or her) courage holds” (The 13th Warrior, parentheticals added).
