The Wheel of the Year at Gaia's Garden
Women are invited to join us to celebrate the eight festivals at 6pm for 6:30pm ritual commencement on the following dates. We are using a Wheel of the Year adapted to the Southern Hemisphere and modified to acknowledge the seven Indigenous seasons for South East Australia.
The traditional festivals were developed over thousands of years in parts of Europe where they celebrated the changing of the seasons and the shifts in the land such as harvest and spring. Not surprisingly our Celtic forebears brought these traditions with them although the seasons and the land is very different.
Like other people, we have translated the festivals to the southern hemisphere. We have more recently acknowledged the seasons for our part of the land and the placing of the elements as fits our place on the land.
