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.

full of myths, superstitions and legends.

The nights of Hecate, goddess of the underworld,

are on November 7th, 16th and 30th.

On these nights you should cross her way

with the request for assistance and goodwill,

Sacrifice food and smoke out the apartment.

Use a reversible on these nights

or Uncrossing candle from -Magic of Brighid, -

and the associated -Magic of Brighid- Reversible or Uncrossing Oil.

To bind and transform evil spells.

Our ancestors used to have their fingernails cut off on these nights

and put hair on a cross

to offer them to Hecate.

Then no wicked witch can use them against you.

Hecate is one of the most misunderstood goddesses of antiquity,

around which there are many misinterpretations and misinformation.

She gets mostly on her dark aspect of the old woman

reduced at the crossroads.

However, their original role was much broader.

She was a "great goddess", the moon mother, queen of heaven,

Mother of all life and she represents

one of the oldest versions of the triple goddess.

On the sixth day after the December New Moon, mistletoe is cut,

or better yet, break it with your left hand.

Then you decorate them with red and gold ribbons and hang them over the door.

The mistletoe was revered as a plant that warded off demons and evil.

The mistletoe growing on old oak trees was particularly sacred.

There were firm rules for the druids how to cut mistletoe,

with golden knives, and in certain phases of the moon.

The mistletoe is the sacred plant of Frigga, the goddess of love.

Kissing under a sprig of mistletoe

that the couples stay together for a lifetime.

This custom is documented from December 1st to January 6th.

Whom a young woman under a beautifully decorated with ribbons

If there is mistletoe, she mustn't refuse a kiss.

The mistletoe is said to have mysterious powers.

The plant is said to bring health, fertility, courage and happiness with it.

The Germanic peoples were of the opinion that they protected people.

Bracelets were worn or mistletoe branches were worn over the doors

attached to protect against witches or ghosts, fire or lightning.

Finally, the mistletoe was burned on the twelfth night on January 6th.

The smoky nights or twelve nights.

They have a special meaning in European customs.

December 25th to January 6th

According to popular belief, the stormy forces withdrew in mid-winter

on the night of January 6th at the end of the smoke nights to rest.

That is the time that is also referred to as "between the years".

Laundry is not allowed to be washed these days,

if you want to keep misfortune, suffering and death from the house.

On New Year's Eve peas should be eaten porridge,

so in the next year wealth and prosperity will return to the house.
