Celtic Spiritual Festivals

Each year as the earth orbits around the Sun, we move through the eternal cycle from birth to death. This is true for Cosmos, Nature, humanity and individuals . Astrologically the year is divided into eight segments of 45 degrees, each corresponding to a specific zodiacal position. These eight cycles are also correspond to the eight Lunation cycles, which are instrumental in our unique soul purpose, as outlined in the birthchart.

The four more well-known of these cycles are the Equinoxes (day and night are equal) and Solstices (longest and shortest days of sunlight). The following tabulation is a brief outline, which varies according to the hemisphere you reside within. Celebration of these ancient Festivals differs somewhat by date from the traditions, as we are now in the 21st century, a new Epoch.
