Elul: Rituals and Activities

Some practices and rituals to try out or adapt during the month of Elul.

  • Consider the Hermit card of the tarot and the message of Elul.  What private journeys must you take before you are ready for the new year?  What truths must you seek out?  What hidden things must you illuminate?
  • Connect to the turning of the seasons at Elul.  This season, just before Rosh Hashanah, as we move into the dying of the old year, before the rebirth of life at Tu B’Shevat in the spring.  Buy a new calendar and think about your goals for the year.  What do you want to do in the coming year?  Using the energy of the Yud, which numerically equals 10,  make a list of 10 things that are really important to you in the coming year.
