''Tapping into your cyclical wisdom, leaning into our creative inner and outer world, listening to when creativity calls whilst honouring the world, we live in.''
Wheel of the Year
The Wheel of the Year honours the changing seasons and transitions throughout the year.
The Wheel marks and celebrates the solstices, equinoxes and the four cross-quarter days. Each event signals a shift in the season, weather and the natural world surrounding us.
This cyclical celebration connects us with the rhythms of nature and the ever-changing world we inhabit.
Dates are marked in this calendar along with a description of the symbolism and creative meaning.
The Lunar cycle is symbolic of our inner emotions and wisdom. The full moon illuminates what needs to come forward or what needs to be celebrated.
In many cultures, these moons have symbolic names. The most well-known lunar names are based on North American traditions. These hold little relevance to our seasonal experience of the moon in the Southern Hemisphere.
This calendar uses full moon names appropriate to Southern African cultural and astronomical heritage. These names were sourced from 'The Centre for Astronomical Heritage'. This amazing project aims to acknowledge and celebrate what is iconic and proudly South African.
