Sabbats

Explore the eight seasonal festivals of the Wheel of the Year: Samhain, Mabon, Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Midsummer, and Lammas. See the RITUALS topic for formal sabbat rituals.

Guided Meditation for Samhain - Sacrifice star
Guided meditations permit a fantasy state in which visions are possible. This guided meditation puts you in the viewpoint of the Lord at Samhain, which is the third and final harvest of the year in which he gives his own life in sacrifice to ensure the abundance of next year’s crops.

Guided Meditation for Yule - Anticipation star
This guided meditation puts you into the longest night of the year, which is a place of beginnings. In ancient times, the faithful used to wait up all night on Winter Solstice to see the sun return at dawn.

How to Decorate A Samhain Altar star
Whether you have one Samhain altar or several, the ways to decorate it are numerous. Your altar can be large or small. As you look ahead to the approach of Samhain, you might want to create an altar in advance based on the following lists of suggestions.

How to Decorate a Yule Altar star
The Yule altar is great fun to prepare because Yule is a time of rejoicing. Though it falls on the winter solstice with the shortest day and the longest night of the year, Yule is the festival that marks the return of the Sun.

How to Decorate An Imbolc Altar star
The sabbat of Imbolc, which occurs on February 2, is a time of beginnings. This article will give you ideas on how to decorate your altar to honor the Goddess on her fire festival.

How to Decorate an Ostara Altar star
The Ostara altar celebrates the spring equinox. The snow is melting, the trees are budding, and the spring bulbs are flowering. Now is the time to forget about snow (even if it continues to blanket the landscape), turn our thoughts toward spring, and banish the color white from our altars.

How to Plan Your Samhain Party star
Though Samhain is a deeply spiritual and contemplative time for Wiccans, it also marks the new year and is a great time for a party. Here is a sample plan for a house party that you can adapt to your own circumstances to make your Samhain gathering a night to remember.

Samhain Supper Recipes star
Samhain is the doorway into winter when we pagans and Wiccans gather to remember our ancestors, to take stock of the old year, and to welcome the new year. On Samhain night, you want to serve a hearty, warm meal with a light and spicy dessert to follow.

Solitary Samhain Activities star
If you celebrate Samhain alone, the occasion will be more contemplative than at a party. But nothing can engage your belief in the magic of the season as strongly as your own solitary celebration with no distractions as you experience a sabbat that you have tailored exactly to your own tastes.

What to Do For the Wiccan Sabbat of Imbolc star
The Wiccan sabbat of Imbolc, which occurs on February 2, is a time of beginnings. It is also a time of spring cleaning and blessing one's home and pets. Here are several ideas of things to do on this most auspicious day to honor the Goddess Brighid of the sacred flame.
