Our observances are held on the full moon (thirteen time a year) and
occasionally the dark of the moon. We also celebrate the "Wheel of
Samhain, October 31 -- November Eve
This is the Wiccan "New Year" celebration. We spend the night
in dance and song around the fire. This is one of two times in the year
when the boundaries between the worlds are the thinnest. Spirits freely
pass in both directions bringing about stories of otherworldly
At this time we give honor to the Gods and to those who have
passed the veil during the previous year. We also give honor to our
departed loved ones and invite them to celebrate the turning of the year with
Yule, December 21 -- Winter Solstice
This is the Festival of Light. At this time we celebrate the
rebirth of the God (in His form as the Sun). With this birth we know that once
again the days will grow longer and the Sun will return life once more to the
We celebrate with the Yule Log, the decorated tree (representing the World
Tree), feast and fellowship.
Imbolc (Oimelc), February
This is the traditional lambing season. At this time we revere the
Goddess in Her form as Brigid, the Goddess of creativity, rebirth, fire and
inspiration. Her fire purifies and heals. Gazing into Her flames we
receive visions and insights.
Ostara, March 21 -- Vernal Equinox
At this time of year the day and night are of equal length. Wiccans
serve balance and the year is at one of the two balance points on this
day. At Ostara we revere the Goddess Ostara or Eostre, the bringer
of new life. Her symbols are the rabbit for her proliferation and the egg from
which new life springs out of seeming nothingness.
Beltaine, April 30 -- May Eve
The world is turning green once more and Witches dance naked round the
Maypole. The may pole is a symbol of the God's regenerative power and we
bind that energy into the world with our dance and the colorful ribbons we
wrap around the poll. Beltaine means "Bel's
Fires". Couples jump the fire for luck and blessing.
This is the other poll on the axis of the year and is a time when the walls
between the worlds are thin and passable.
or Midsummer, June 21 -- Summer Solstice
This is the longest day of the year. Life is preeminent and warmth and plenty
abound. We celebrate round the Litha bonfire knowing that the Goddess
loves Her children and smiles upon us. At this time we also celebrate
the sacred marriage of the Goddess and God.
Lughnasadh or Lammas, July 31 -- August Eve
We honor the God is His form as the Solar God Lugh. Lugh brings us the
benefits of culture and civilization. This is a celebration of the arts,
skill and knowledge. This is also Lammas, the Anglo-Saxon "Feast of
Bread". The first of the harvest comes at this time and we give
thanks for the many lives of plants and animals which are sacrificed for our
survival. At this time we enjoy the grain in all its forms, bread,
staple dishes and beer.
Mabon, September 21 -- Autumnal Equinox
The great harvest festival. Again light and dark in balance. before the
descent to the dark times. We thank the Goddess for giving us sustenance to
see us through the coming winter. This is the Pagan "Thanksgiving"
and we celebrate it as our ancesters have for thousands of years, in feast and
This brings us back to Samhain, the
beginning and ending of each turn of the wheel of life.
We worship the Goddess and the God in all their forms and believe in the
sanctity of all life. Wicca is a nature based religion. As Wiccans
we believe that we have a responsibility to protect the life, liberty and health
of all of our fellow beings.
Dawnblaze is also dedicated to preserving the Goddess given rights of all
Gaia's creatures. The path isn't an easy one. We have all slipped further
than we know. Are you willing to follow the path?
