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.

Yule:
Yule is celebrated on or about the 21st of December, the shortest day in the year.  As the Wheel of the Year is a cycle instead of a line, it is both the last and the first day of the ritual year.  Symbolically it is the time of the Death and Rebirth of the Sun, when the world holds its breath  waiting to see if the Sun will rise at dawn or if eternal night will rule.

The summertime’s not over yet, and we’ve still got time.

Time for traveling…

Time for meeting interesting people…

Time for trying new and different things…

And Foresight has another great event for you!

On August 28, at the VFW at 152 Massirio Dr, Berlin, Ct, it’s the 2010 Connecticut Pagan Pride Day!

They’ll have classes  and other events. (Catherine will be teaching “Symbols in Magick”  and an exercise in collaborative storytelling  in regards to the Oral tradition).

There’ll be lots of fine vendors ( including the psychics of Foresight).

And instead of admission, they’re asking for donations of:

  • non-perishable food for the local food bank;
  • blankets, towels, pet food or toys for the Connecticut Humane Society;
  • new or gently used pagan items for soldiers stationed overseas (no candles or items with open flames, please);

So this is another chance to make the world better, learn interesting things, meet new people and have fun all at the same time and place. And how enlightened is that?

If you want more information, please check out www.facebook.com/pages/Connecticut-Pagan-Pride/110582388967451?ref=ts

And come see us at Connecticut Pagan Pride day
