Wheel of the Year

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket I missed last night..again...sorry..but I did put up some videos...hope you like them. As of tonight I'm back on track. For this blog, I'd like to introduce the Pagan Wheel of the Year, which is basically a calendar of the earth's seasons and the sabbats that correspond to them. It's divides into 8 parts, which are spread out in even intervals for the year. The circular shape represents the fact that time is constantly cycles through the seasons paralleling the cycle of the stages of life, decline, death, and rebirth. Four of thesabats fall n the solstices and the equinox, and the other four occur midway between them.

Hey Dehlia,

again, your post reminds me of the Native American Indian with the circle of "life", also called the Medicine Wheel by the Indians...

I am begining to think you and the Indians have much in common. Don't you?

Also,on the other hand, don't forget, the Europeans, when they first came to "america", thought the Indians were witches too ... (in a bad sense,but we know better now, don't we? :)

Yes we do have a lot in common with the American Indians. Our religion is tied to the earth and the seasons and we see all things as being part or the spirit. Being that both are earth based religions it is no wonder we have so much in common.
