The four Royal Stars are one of the twenty-five brightest stars in our skies. It is believed that each one rules over one quarter of the night sky, and was held that within each one there is good power and evil power.

Their names are Aldebaran, Regulus, Antares, and Fomalhaut. Each one is synonymous with the changing of the Seasons. This Winter Solstice, on December 21, we look to Fomalhaut – the watcher of the North – who rules over the Winter Solstice and stands alone in Pisces.

This star’s name literally translates to ‘Mouth of Fish’ and is the solitary brightest star in the region and is often depicted in the Pisces constellation as the fish drinking up the waters of Aquarius pitcher.


What you will need:
• Journal and favorite writing instrument
• Large White Candle
• Essential Oils of Lavender and/or Frankincense
• Favorite Cocktail
• Mekabre Loa Voodoo Doll

On the shortest day of light, a befitting celebration would be to stay up all night, welcoming the next day’s sunrise which ushers in lengthier days to come. Make some quiet time for yourself by preparing a cup of wassail, or a special cocktail. Write in your journal, meditate and enjoy the quiet comfort of your surroundings with your Mekabre Loa Voodoo doll.

Place a few drops of Lavender or Frankincense essential oil on your index finger and gently rub it into the heart of Mekabre Loa Voodoo Doll. These oils help decrease anxiety and quiet the mind while providing a tranquil and spiritual energy. Close your eyes and let your mind wander, allow whatever enters your mind to be present. Take a moment to acknowledge it and then release that thought.

Light the candle and record your thoughts and dreams in your journal. Let go of past mistakes, negative situations and people and make room in your soul for new endeavors and creativity.

With your favorite cocktail, toast the Royal Star Fomalhaut! Thank him for brightening the sky and becoming the beacon that led you into this special time of celebration!
