As the earth orbits, and seasons transform, there’s an ancient, rhythmic dance that whispers the tales of time. It’s more than just the changing of seasons; it’s a mystical journey through eight magical Sabbats. These milestones offer a chance to connect deeply with the cycles of nature and our own inner mysteries. Let’s embark on this celestial voyage through the Wheel of the Year.
1. Yule: December 19-23
A celebration of rebirth, Yule marks the winter solstice — the shortest day and the longest night. As we kindle fires and light candles, we invite the returning sun and celebrate the promise of brighter days ahead.
2. Imbolc: February 1-2
The first whispers of Spring beckon as we honor Imbolc. It’s a time of purification, of setting intentions, and awakening to the budding life around and within us.
3. Ostara: March 19-23
Step into the equinox where day and night find balance. Ostara sings the song of fertile grounds, new beginnings, and the blossoming of nature in her full vibrancy.
4. Beltane: April 30 – May 1
A celebration of love, fertility, and fire. Beltane marks the onset of the warm season. Dance around the Maypole, feel the passionate energy, and immerse in the heady magic of life in its fullest expression.
5. Litha/Midsummer: June 19-23
At the zenith of the sun’s power, we reach the summer solstice. A time to bask in the sun’s radiant energy, to celebrate the fullness of life, and to revel in the abundance of nature.
6. Lughnasadh: August 1-2
The first harvest festival, Lughnasadh is a time of gratitude, of reaping what we’ve sown, and of starting to let go. As we gather our crops, we also gather our thoughts and give thanks for the bounty we’ve received.
7. Mabon: September 20-24
As day and night find balance once again, Mabon, the autumn equinox, is a sacred moment of giving thanks, letting go, and preparing for the introspective season ahead.
8. Samhain: October 31 – November 1
My online tarot readings explode on this day & I can often be found reading tarot cards at parties in costume. The veil between worlds thins, allowing us to commune with ancestors and spirits. Samhain, the final harvest, is a time of endings and beginnings, a moment to honor the cycle of life and death.
The Wheel of the Year is more than a calendar; it’s a spiritual roadmap. As we journey through each Sabbat, we connect with the world’s ancient rhythm and our deepest selves. Many of my best uk psychics live their lives by this rhythm & can offer spiritual guidance tailored to your journey. By celebrating these mystical milestones, we harmonise our spirit with the universe’s timeless dance.
