The Witches' Wheel of the Year is the seasonal division of the annual cycle by the celebration of 8 festivals commemorated in Celtic lands, and throughout Pagan Europe as well, marking the initiation, climax, and ending of 4 magickal seasons (magickal tides of Earth and cosmic energies, taking place in the course of each yearly cycle) and which also apply to the climate and geography which most people experience in North America.  Modern magickal practitioners use these seasonal celebrations to attune, align, and organize their individual lives to harmonize with the natural cycles of energy that take place every year and to honor the Goddess and God .

 The Greater Sabbats were often called fire festivals because they were commemorated with great bon fires attended by many people, and to this date they are still celebrated with great feasting and merry making. Celebration of the Sabbat is believed to ensure good fortune and prosperity for all participants in the months following the festival, and the central theme is the yearly death and rebirth of the Sun in the endless procession of Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.

Samhain (October 31st):This festival is the Witches' New Year and heralds Winter's arrival.  We take stock of the year past, project for the future , honor the Ancestors and commune with loved ones who have passed into Spirit.

Yule (Winter Solstice December 19th-22nd): One the longest night of the year, the Sun God is conceived once more in the womb of the Great Mother.  Witches perform magickal rites to ensure the rebirth of the Sun and its light returning to Earth.

Imbolc (Candlemas February 2nd): This is the festival of the Waxing Light. When days again begin to lengthen, we feel the first stirrings of Life in the Earth Mother's womb.  The Sun is reborn.  Burn this incense for new beginnings and the fulfillment of hope throughout the Imbolc season until the first day of Spring.

Ostara (Vernnal Equinox March 20th-23rd): With the entry of the Sun into the zodiacal sign of Aries, Winter departs and light masters darkness.  As the life of Earth returns, with our rites we strengthen the Sun and welcome Spring.  Burn this incense to draw on the energy of the Equinox.

Beltane (May Day May 1st):To celebrate the sacred marriage of Earth and Sky, we dance joyfully around the Maypole, performing Spring rites of love and passion.  We invoke the May Queen and the sexual power of the Earth, yielding our bodies to the urgings of nature.  Burn this incense for the pleasures and delights of Spring in full flower.

Litha (Summer Solstice June 20th-23rd):On the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, burn this incense to invoke the Sun at the height of its powers to draw strength, love and protection. In Summer heat, the Great Rite is performed.  This incense may be burned throughout the Summer Solstice season.

Lammas (Lughnasadh August 1st):This Celtic first fruits festival is an August Eve celebration of great antiquity.  Burn this incense as an offering throughout August to honor the Goddess as Corn Mother, and to release the energy of the Sun God as in a symbolic sacrifice to ensure a bountiful harvest in the coming months.

Mabon (Autumnal Equinox September21st-23rd): This Sabbat festival. traditionally called "Harvest Home", is a time to offer thanks to our Goddess and God for the harvest which is now in full swing.  As Autumn leaves change color, magicks are performed to ensure good weather and to protect the Winter food supply.  Burn this multi-purpose incense to honor the season and to lend balance to your Equinox rituals.
