 The Wheel of the Year represents the cyclical wheel of nature, the changing rhythms of the seasons. With illustrations, Roma will explore each of the eight Celtic festivals, marked by the solstices and equinoxes and four cross-quarter days: Imbolc, Beltane, Lammas and Samhain.
Our ancestors were aware that the sun and moon and the heavenly bodies created the celestial timings of the seasons. Their belief system was based on these needs, understanding their environment and how all connected with the landscape that surrounded them. They were aware of the sacred at all times and places; many of the Celtic pagan festivals were taken into the Christian calendar. We will look at the archetypal energies of the harvest wheel and how these overlay on the zodiac, to enable us to work consciously and attune throughout the year with the energies of nature.
