Southern sabbats
By:
Post # 1
Okay.I'm in the southern hemisphere and I was wondering, should I celebrate the sabbats on the original dates for the northern hemisphere? Though I feel more inclined to celebrate them on the southern dates as the correspond with the season and I can't be celebrating winter in summer! I'm just wondering if there are any other witches with this dilemma and what they do :)

I'm not in the Southern Hemisphere, but I would say that the sabbats are directly linked to the seasons and the shifting of the year.. Celebrating Yule in the middle of summer probably isn't ideal, nor is celebrating the summer solstice in mid winter.

I would always say, go with what you think is right, to you.

The Sabbats in the Southern Hemisphere are opposite the dates of those in the Northern Hemisphere. So in the Southern Hemisphere the Sabbats would fall as follows:

Yule - June 21-23

Impolc - Aug 1

Ostara - Sep 21-23

Beltane - Oct 31

MidSummer - Dec 21-23

Lammas or Lughnassad - Feb 1

Mabon - March 21-23

Samhain - May 1

Also, in the Southern Hemisphere the directions for the Elemental Quarters are also reversed to reflect the climate there. So East = Air, South = , West = Water, and North = Fire.

There is an excellent website with lots of good information for those practicing in the Southern Hemisphere that can be found at http://www.applegroveonline.com/
