These holidays mark the midpoint of each season and always fall on a specific day, unlike the other four which can shift depending on the year.
The sabbats are drawn from Western European pagan traditions that pre-date Christianity. They are days of celebration and festivities to honor the gods and the earth and ourselves. Continue reading below to take a closer look at each sabbat.
Current Subscriber? Falling on or around December 21st, Yule takes place on the winter solstice. It is the shortest day and longest night of the year, plunging the world into darkness. However, it is a time of joy as it is the starting point for light to enter the world again. In some beliefs, Yule is the time of year when the sun god is reborn to return the light to us.
It also marks the exchange of power from the Holly King to the Oak King, a representation of the cyclical nature of the seasons that has no end. During this cold time of the year, action gives way to reflection. Yule is a time of thought. It should be spent reminiscing on the last year and telling tales of all the things that have happened. Lost family members are honored at this time of year and given a place to join in the festivities, as they are always with us.
One of the most important aspects of Yule is the Yule log, which is burnt to represent the light that can be found in the darkness. The log is traditionally burnt throughout the night to remind us that we can persevere through anything, no matter how dark. February Also known as Candlemas, Imbolc falls on February 2nd and marks the halfway point of the winter season. This concept is woven throughout the sabbat as a time of rebirth, hope, and fertility.
Imbolc is often the time when the goddess Brigid is honored as the maiden. She is associated with the fertility of the land. Celebrations at this time of year may include the making and burning of a sun wheel to symbolize the continuity of life. Anyone with more info please get in touch ].

History of a Time to Come Dreamweaver Reflections of Our Yesterdays Mourning Has Broken Album) They who were here before us Will remain when we have gone, And though we're long forgotten Still their memory will live on.
Perhaps one day mankind will see The error of it's ways, And in it's future glimpse Reflections of our yesterdays. Drawn to these spirits like Moths to a flame - When there is no risk Then there can be no gain.
Denizens of sylvan places Hidden from the eyes of man, Courtesans with sylph-like graces Dancing to the pipes of Pan - That echoed through the Album) Notes that soured the wings of halcyon, Songs to give our life the meaning That we lack now they have gone. Watch the pattern ever changing In the tapestry of fate, Weft and weave and interlacing Silken strands that fabricate - A cloak to fit both king and beggar, Those who rule and those that toil Are equalled in the fact that All pay homage to this mortal coil.
Icy fingers grasping madly Get a grip upon my throat - And slowly squeeze the life out of me On my dying words I choke, Afrantic prayer in desperation Cannot hope to make me whole, A moments lapse of concentration And the spirits flee my soul.
Drugs and potions surge within me - Slowly paralize and kill me, Terrified I stumble blindly Into the unknown. Outside looking in - observing Feelings that I find unnerving Dying with my eyes wide open Helpless and alone.
The endless void that lies beyond - With gaping jaws it beckons me, I cast my worldly flesh aside and Plunge into eternity. Once light hearted I departed - On my quest hope courted me, Now a new love is my true love And her name is misery.
Eyes as dark as midnight-ravens Gems that filled my mind with awe, Enthral my heart - Distract me from her milk-white hands Stained red with gore. The fetters that bound me are broken, By words that were best left unspoken, For now I am shackled to sadness By chains that are tempered with madness. I plummet like a shooting-star That shines so bright yet falls so far, Shafts of moonlight guide me To the world that waits below.
I seem in need of nothing else But rope enough to hang myself- Laughing through the gates of Hell I go. The latch has now been lifted On an ever open door, And peering through I see Album) As I never have before. The hammer and the anvil meet - In synchronicity they chime, a sound so simple and complete It needs no melody or rhyme. Reforging all that I once was - They make me into something new, No longer trapped within this world But, transient and passing through - The 'valley of the shadow' Far beyond the 'summerland', Like the wild-boar is my valour Now my life is in these hands - That keep the seething couldron steaming, Stoke the fires of destiny, Gently take me and re-shape me All-wise smith of sorcery The fetters that bound me are broken, By words that were best left unspoken, For now I am shackled to sadness By chains that are tempered with madness.
From the 'cup of happiness' The wine of hoped I've sipped, Betrayed I taste the bitterness Of pain upon my lips. Though I try to drown my sorrows They will surely drown me first, For swallowing my pride Won't quench this thirst. I wander in confusion While the tears that I have cried, Gleam like broken trinkets Album) have worn then cast aside. No curtain could conceal you For the ghosts of all you slander- Await you at your journeys end And, to them Sabbat (2) - Dreamweaver (Reflections Of Our Yesterdays) - Expanded Edition (CD must answer.
The poisons born upon your tongue Will never serve to slight me, For I have delt with many fools and Suffer your kind lightly. Just as you sow so shall you reap - And I my friend have plenty, So sit ye down and eat your words Now that your plate is empty. Don't take the views of others And dismiss them out of hand - For when your pillars crumble Tell me who will take command?
Wildfire In thoughts from visions of the night, When deep sleep falleth out of sight. Many a strange thing will you dream - Though it is never what it seems Awakened from my troubled sleep - Where dreams once lost as Nightmares creep, To steal my soul and suffocate What sanity remains.
My anger mute - My anguish blind Within this sad fragmentmented mind, Your eyes the spark to light fire That burns away my pain. Protected by reality- Yet you still fear the beast in me, Your reckless tongue could be the key, You'll be the first to die If it breaks free. Alone tonight- Myself and I, On raven wings our spirits fly. All hope has fallen out of sight, Without the wit or will to fight.
