Weel of the Year Witches Sabbath
The Weel of the Year, also called witches sabbaths,
are 8 evenly distributed stations
in the cycle that the sun traverses in one year.
They are divided into four solar festivals (Solstice Sabbath)
and four moon feasts (Moon Esbat).
The sun festivals are celebrated at the distinctive turning points of the sun,
like day and night and solstice.
The moon fixed are exactly in between.
So it turns out that a witch ritual takes place every 6 1/2 weeks.
We start the Jule cycle on December 21st, the day of the winter sun turn,
because this is where the returning light is celebrated.
With the birth of the sun, the pregnancy of nature begins
and that is the beginning of all life.
Samhain, Yule Festival, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lughnasad, Mabon.

Mother of all life and she represents
one of the oldest versions of the triple goddess.
