The final spoke on the Wheel of the Year comes 6 weeks after the Fall equinox and that is Oct 31, Halloween  or Samhain .
It is a 2 fold holiday. First  it is the Feast of the dead, as it is the time when the veil between the worlds is thinnest. Second it is the Meat harvest when farmers would choose which animals would be kept for Spring breeding and which would slaughtered for Winter.

Six weeks after Lammas comes the Autumn Equinox, on or about the 21st of September. This is another “balance festivals” when neither light nor darkness holds majority. It is also the time of the Apple harvest when you can divine the name of your future mate by throwing apple peelings over your shoulder and seeing what letter forms.

Following Mid-Summer is the first of the harvest celebrations, Lammas, celebrated on Aug. 2nd. This is the first of the Harvest festivals, specifically the grain harvest. Some of the customs around Lammas  include making corn dollies, abstaining from meat between sunup and sundown (Herne’s Blessing), and burning straw men.

The next major holiday is Beltane .
This is celebrated on May 1 and is both a solar celebration (the triumph of Spring over Winter)  and a fertility celebration (leaves are greening, crops are sown).

Next I’m going to outline some of the various sects or “traditions” of Wicca .

 Gardenarian: The oldest Wiccan tradition, brought to public attention by Gerald Gardner in the late 1940’s.

Alexandrian : Popularized by Alex Saunders after he broke with Gardener.

Dianic : A feminist tradition from the 1960’s on that emphasizes the Goddess with little or no mention of the God.

Next the God:
He is the Son/Lover of the Goddess, her partner in creation .
The Lord of the Forest, the Hunter on the woodland trail.
Both the Reaper and that which is harvested.
The Unconquered Sun to Her ever-changing Moon.
Warrior, Sage, Fool, Trickster.
All these he is,
And so much more.

Next, I’m going to touch on the Goddess in more depth.
She is the Prime Source , The Unbegotten, The Bornless One . Within each of us, yet beyond time and space because She existed before time and space.
She has Thousands of Names, Gaia, Nut, Kali, Danu, Mother Earth, and many more.
She is the archetype of woman yet exists paradoxically within man.

Maiden, Mother, Crone,  all this She is and more.
                                                     Till next week.
