Everything You Need to Know About the Wiccan Wheel of the Year The ancients lived by a fundamental truth that is often lost in our fast-paced world-that time is circular as much as it is linear. Following the Wheel of the Year by honoring the eight Sabbats, or days of power as they're often called, helps us integrate this concept of circular time into our daily lives. The Wheel provides a sense of rhythm to the year, as the equal increments of days and weeks between the Sabbats allow us to feel the seasons turning in a beautiful symmetry. The Sabbats also provide a context for honoring the dynamic relationship between the Goddess and the God. As the seasons turn, the divine pair shifts from mother and child to co-creative consorts and then back again. We honor these shifting roles and aspects throughout the year, with each Sabbat representing a point in the overarching story. This close participation with the cycles of the season is what some Wiccans refer to as "turning the Wheel." Perhaps because it's such a big topic all on its own, many introductory sources on Wicca tend to gloss over the Wheel, providing just a paragraph or two on each holiday. In Wheel of the Year Magic, best-selling author Lisa Chamberlain devotes a full chapter to each of the Sabbats: their significance within the context of the ever-changing seasons, the part they play in the mythological cycle of the Goddess and the God, and the spiritual themes they ask us to reflect upon as we celebrate them. So whether you're just starting out in Wicca or you're a seasoned practitioner looking for new perspectives, this guide can support and inspire your journey. And while the information here is rooted in Wicca, much of it is applicable to Pagans of all stripes, as well as anyone who is simply curious about the rich traditions surrounding these milestones of the Old Religion. For those who include spellwork in their practice, the energies surrounding the Sabbats make them excellent opportunities to work magic. In fact, many Wiccans and other Witches like to incorporate spellwork and/or spellcraft into their Sabbat celebrations. As with all of Lisa's books, the spells and other workings included in this guide can be followed as-is or adapted to suit your individual style. They can also be a springboard for more ideas about how to approach magical work on these special occasions. Foundations in Celebrating the Days of Power A dynamic, creative and evolving approach to connecting with divine Nature is at the heart of Wicca and other forms of modern Paganism. Wheel of the Year Magic was written in this spirit, offering insight and information that will help you to build your own unique relationship with these eight days of power. Whatever your experience level, you can build on your knowledge with the information in this guide, including: - The origins and development of the modern Wheel of the Year - The seasonal and spiritual significance of each of the eight days of power: Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lammas, Mabon and Samhain - The pagan history behind each Sabbat-the myths, beliefs and customs that have inspired our modern celebrations - Suggestions for creating your own Sabbat celebrations, whether you're a solitary practitioner or working with fellow Witches - Spells and other magical workings aligned with the seasonal and divine energies of each Sabbat When you choose to mark the Sabbats, you are participating in a timeless tradition of honoring the endless cycles of Nature and the divine workings of the Universe. As you grow in your practice from year to year, Wheel of the Year Magic will continue to be a trusted source of knowledge and inspiration. Enjoy the journey!

A Turning on the Wheel of Life

Death, with its attendant lore and rites, plays a prominent and significant role in the Wiccan religion. Death's ultimate power to transform is invoked as an aspect or dimension of many Wiccan deities in order to help its practitioners effect some critical change in their lives. Death is annually celebrated as a seasonal aspect of the Wheel of the Year, taking its place among the harvest rites, which reap not only fruits of the field, but fruits of the spirit. Death forms a central part of Wiccan initiation, both in terms of the perceived transformative process of death and rebirth, and in its personification as the Challenger on the Threshold of the Circle.

The Wicca Handbook is both a tutorial for new witches and an exceptionally well-organized reference book for experienced practitioners. It guides us through the first steps in becoming a witch and explores many Wiccan traditions, initiations, and magical practices. The Wiccan year-the eight Sabbats-along with many of its rituals and ceremonies are examined. Holland also provides the background of every facet of witchcraft, such as spells for every occasion, psychic protection, numerology, basic astrology, and the lore of stones, metals, candles, animals, and much more. High Priestess Eileen Holland's helpful guide is rooted in practicality and intended as a working handbook, not a simple beginner's guide. The information is rich; clear directions are given, and its range of content is extensive. Spells, circles, crystals, and color magic, herbs, health, and healing are all covered with abundant direction on how to do it, when to do it, and suggestions for seeking guidance from the deities. Those who have been on their path for a few years will find this a great reference book to refer to time and again.

A fresh look at the wheel of the year, drawing on the power of intuition to create rituals and celebrations in harmony with your own traditions, your locale, and the climate of where you live. When we think of the wheel of the year, the Wiccan wheel with its celebrations of the Yule, Beltane, Mabon, and Samhain come to mind. But what about a wheel of the year for the rest of us pagans and witches? As a witch living in sunny South Florida, longtime hereditary witch Temperance Alden has often felt at odds gearing up to celebrate Yule, for example, when it is 76 degrees and sunny outside. Year of the Witch will help readers create their own intuitive practices in harmony with the climate, culture, and local spirits where they live. It’s of interest to witches coming off the Wiccan path and looking for a more personal approach to celebrating the rhythms of nature. Year of the Witch covers all aspects of this new, seasonal practice: • The origins of the neo-pagan wheel of the year and why it is still so relevant today • Culture, historical facts, and traditions associated with the major ceremonies • Basic principles of land-based magick • How to intuitively connect to the nature below your feet and the local gods • Being a custodian to the land and its impact on our spiritual practice

Christian Wicca: Oxymoron or the Best of Both World? Finally, a how-to guide for practicing Wicca, celebrating the return of the original Christian Trinity: the Father, the Mother, and the Holy Son Jesus. This book is written expressly for Wiccans who wish to walk the spiritual path of earth-based religions, but do not wish to surrender their Judeo-Christian background. Nancy now offers a simple solution to the rapidly emerging ChristoPagan community. Wicca, the Old Religion, or the religion of the wise, is the fastest growing form of spirituality in the United States. Many modern and eclectic Christians have no problem recognizing Jesus as Lord, but instead have a problem accepting the dogma of the organized church. Seekers are also feeling the absense of the Female aspect of the Divine and wish to re-establish the Goddess in their spirituality. In the wake of the discoveries of the Nag Hammadi Library, for the first time since 100-300 A.C.E. - the yin of the Christian faith is seeking to restore it's yang! Despite the overwhelming evidence that there is a Divine Mother --- no one has applied this information to Wicca and the Holy Days of the Wheel of the Year. "Christian Wicca: the Trinitarian Tradition" does this very task, outlining the Sabbats, the Esbats to include the Holy Trinity . . . also introducing observances expressly for Jesus, called Kyriats! Blessed Be!!

From the beginning of time the seasons of the year have affected our planet and the life forms on it. As human kind became less nomadic and more hunter/gathers we began to learn and work with the seasons. We planted in the early Spring, tended our crops through Summer, reaped our crops in the Autumn, and struggled to survive the Winter. We called upon the Gods throughout the growing season to help us to have a bountiful harvest. We called upon them again in the Winter to guide us through the darkness. Although our personal survival is no longer bound as closely to the land, the seasons still affect us. Winter is a dark and isolated time when many people become depressed and let go of this life. Spring makes us itch for freedom and we play hooky from other responsibilities to revel in the joy of new energy. Summer makes us lazy and content. We want to go out and take a nap in the grass while the warm breezes caress us. Autumn brings us back to our hearth fires and home and we begin nesting for Winter. This cycle continues year after year. The Wiccan’s name for this cycle of the seasons is The Wheel of the Year.
