Why aren’t your rituals on the traditional dates?

In traditional Wiccian/neo-pagan traditions, the Sabbats are eight holy days designated by the cycle of the Sun. These “Great Days” are somewhat “fixed” in the calendar year in that they are astronomical events and deemed as auspicious for working rituals and linking personal energies to the Land, to each other, and to the Gods and spirits.

By holding our events after these holidays (during a Sabbat’s “season”) we recognize the influence of that Sabbat and its energies upon our celebrations while also acknowledging that our rituals and events are not exactly one-for-one comparisons with the traditional holidays. Additionally, for those members and seekers who are part of another tradition or group, this arrangement allows them to be present and active within both organizations.
