Wheel of the Year

North East

It is the time of the Spring Equinox. Day and night are of equal length. Our energy begins to build as we begin to come out of the contemplative time of winter.


As spring swings into full bloom you feel full of energy and promise. It is easy to create wonderful plans for the future at this time of year.

South East

It is the time of the Summer Solstice. The days are long and nights are short. We enjoy the outdoors feeling alive, active and whole. Nature blesses us with her radiance.


In mid summer we are more active because of the wonderful outdoor activities available to us. Our gardens are bursting with the earth's bounty.

South West

It is the time of the Autumn Equinox. Night and day are of equal length creating a balance point between our active life of summer and our quieter more inward time of winter.


As days get shorter and nights longer we begin to retreat more into the darkness for introspection. We think about what is and is not working in our lives.

North West

The Winter Solstice comes. Nights are very long and we find ourselves to be more receptive to dreams and intuition. We spend more time indoors, our winter cave of the dreamtime.


We find that we sleep longer at night. The quiet evenings offer rest as well. We may even feel a bit depressed, our bodies way of telling us to take inward time for ourselves.
