Add Yule to your bullet journal with these witchy journal prompts. These are the perfect writing prompts for journaling in cold weather to collect your thoughts on witchcraft and paganism.

There’s a lot of thoughts and different opinions on magick and witchery. Everyone disagrees on everything, it seems like.

Some people say that it matters what words you say; others, just say what you like. Some say you have to rhyme, others say you have to know the numerology. There’s one thing that almost everyone agrees on: Writing in your journal is one of the most important things you can do.

Keeping records of rituals. Writing records of dreams. Maintaining records of your mood and your hopes and what you’re doing to achieve your goals. It doesn’t matter if it’s a bullet journal, or a planner, or a bunch of scraps of paper you stuff into a manila envelope, you should be keeping records.

But while it’s easy to say that, it’s a lot harder when you’re staring at an empty page, wondering what to do. There are many things you can do, but one of the most easiest and most common is to use journal prompts to kick-start your entries.

With Yule season coming upon us, and the weather growing colder here in Michigan, I’ve been thinking about yule- and winter-themed journal prompts. Here’s a few of my favorites.

  • What’s better (and why): being too hot, or too cold?
  • What’s my favorite hot beverage on a cold night? What do I love about it?
  • Write a poem from the perspective of a snowflake falling to earth. What does it see, hear, smell, feel?
  • How is winter special to me? Further, what can I enjoy this time of year more than any other?
  • What am I most looking forward to about Spring and the coming year?
  • Write about your favorite coat.
  • What is my favorite winter or snow day memory from child hood?
  • What does winter mean to me?
  • Write a love letter to spring.

  • What’s coming to an end in 2020? What am I looking forward to starting, or re-committing to, in 2021?
  • How can I make 2021 a success? What is it that I truly desire in the coming year?
  • What am I doing to heal myself, in this season of rest, repose and recuperation?
  • How can I find meaning as a Witch in a society dominated by the Christmas holiday?
  • What does it mean to celebrate Yule as a pagan religious practice, as Christmas becomes increasingly commercialized?
  • What is my favorite part of celebrating Yule? How is a Yule celebration special, rather than a Samhain, Beltane, or Lughnasad celebration?
  • What can I do to honor the sun and its influence on my life?
  • What am I learning from the growing darkness of winter?
  • What does my highest self desire in the next year?
  • What can I do to recommit myself to living a more spiritual life in 2021?
