Calendar of the Sun
Day of the North Wind
Colors: White, grey and black
Altar: On cloth of shades between white and black, place four white and grey candles, a vase of
flags and banners in the colors of a snowy night, a bell with a clear tone, a knife, a glass of white
wine, and incense of cypress and juniper.
Offerings: Blowing curls of paper into the wind. Ringing bells or wind chimes. Study and
learning, especially of a field of knowledge that is difficult for you.
Daily Meal: Raw cold food.
Invocation to the North Wind
Breathe in the wind of the North,
Cold and chill,
Ice-flecked wind that brings
The order for all life to sleep,
Forcing closed our tired eyes,
Wind that sweeps down from the poles,
Wind that sweeps away our resistance,
Wind that invites us to lie down
And embrace the darkness,
Whistling wind that comes in
Through the cracks and chinks
Of our fears and longings,
Breath of winter, wind that strokes the starry skies
Over the dead fields, and calls to us
With sere and weathered voice,
Black wind of night that cuts us
Like the razor-edged knife,
Have mercy on us!
And cleanse your body yet again.
Chant: Boreas Boreas Breath of the North
Wind of knives
Song: Wind's Four Quarters
(Wind chimes and bells are rung. Wine is poured as a libation. All process outside and release
messages on small curls of paper into the north wind.)
