It's Party Time! One of the
best bits about being a Witch has to be Sabbats and Esbats. It's a great
excuse for some home-cooked food and drink. Follow the links below and
I will tell you more!
Are a celebration
of the changing seasons. Witches do not usually do magick on these days
as they are celebrations. However, they can be a good day for clearing
out the emotional closet and allowing new things to come into your life.
Stories of the Goddess and
the God are often told on these days and even reenacted. Children may
be taught important lessons through the use of stories and it is a good
time to get them involved.
Samhain aka Hallowe'en, All Hallow's Eve,
Yule aka Christmas, Yuletide, Winter Solstice
Imbolc aka Candlemas, Oimelc, Imbolic
Ostara aka Eostre, Spring Equinox, Vernal Equinox
Beltane aka Beltaine, Bealtinne, May Day,
Midsummer aka as Summer Solstice, Litha
Lughnasadh aka Lammas
Autumn Equinox aka Mabon, Madron
Are usually times or spellworking rather than celebration
- although it doesn't mean that you have to do magick. Don't forget
that you should never do magick without a clear aim. Esbats are the
most powerful times of year and occur whenever there is a full moon.
