Your Guide To The Pagan Calendar

I can't tell you how many times I've searched "Pagan Calendar" to find out what is coming up. It's hard enough keeping up with birthdays, anniversaries, and everything else... sometimes we need a reminder on the next Pagan/Wiccan holiday so we can plan the celebration and rituals.

Here is a general guide. It includes "estimated" dates for when the holidays occur, as most of them change from year to year.

There are 8 Sabbats throughout the year, each of which incorporates a "festival" into the holiday. These fall on "quarter days" and "cross quarter days" throughout the year and correspond with equinoxes and solstices.

These dates are for the Northern Hemisphere only...

Samhain (my favorite) - October 31st...though many celebrate it through November 2nd. It is a time to appreciate and celebrate those who have passed on... to honor the dead. The veils between this world and the next are thinnest, which makes it easier to communicate with their spirits.

Yule (Midwinder) - December 19th - December 23rd. Though many Wiccan celebrate this to correspond with Christmas...or in combination with. This is a celebration of the "Great God"...his rebirth that comes with the solstice.

Imbolc (Candlemas) - February 1st - February 2nd. This is a fire festival aligned with the Goddess Brighid. It is a time for dedication and promises for the rest of the year.

Ostara (Vernal Equinox) - March 19th - March 23rd. This holiday symbolizes the Mother Goddess rejoining her son who spent the winter in death.

Beltane - May 1st. This is another fire festival. It is focused on fertility... and the union of the Lord and Lady.

Midsummer - June 19th - June 23rd. This happens when the sun reaches it's highest point in the sky.

Lammas (Lughnasadh) - August 1st - August 2nd. This is a harvest festival, celebrated with a feast. Specific celebratory rituals vary widely by tradition.

Mabon (Autumnal Equinox) - September 20th - September 24th. This is a time to give thanks... feasting and sharing, and enjoying the company. It's one of the 3 harvest festivals.
