The Wheel of the Year

The Solstices and Equinoxes are subject to change. They are based on the seasons and are known as minor sabbats.
The Major Sabbats have fixed dates but depending on your path and/or culture as to when they are. This is a basic chart so please adjust accordingly.

This is the time between the Full and Dark moons. When the moon’s light becomes less, this is when you want to release and let go of things in your life.
