Note: This Wheel of the Year is set for the Southern Hemisphere, so it revolves Sunwise from that perspective, ie anti-clockwise. If you are interested in a Northern Hemisphere version? Let me know via the Contact Me page.
Is the wheel too large or small on your screen? Click the zoom in/out icons to the top left of the wheel.

The date and time of the Cross Quarter Seasonal Festivals have been calcualted using the midpoint between the Solstice and Equinox that they sit between. Some traditions use specific dates to celebrate them, whereas the true celebrations would often be defined by specific events in Nature.
