Sabbat Altar Art Cards

A stunning pack of 8 double sided, high quality art cards for each of the 8 Sabbats in the Celtic Wheel of the Year.

Each card is made from high quality, thick cardstock and has a soft touch velvet finish. One side of each card has a full colour background whilst the other has a blended paint 'splodge' for those who don't want a full-colour card instead.

Over the top of the watercolour marks we have placed a Magical Sigil that represents the vibration and essence of the celebration. Behind each Sigil you may also notice a further line Sigil to back up the energy of season.

These cards are ideal for those who wish to add a further element to their altar or magical space and also for those who don't necessarily have much space to create a full altar. Simply placing a small candle or t-light in front of the card and spending some time focusing on the season and how you personally connect to it is a small simple way of acknowledging the continual cycle of the Wheel of the Year.

The sigils, as always, were created by ourselves and the backgrounds compiled by a member of our team who is a fantastic artist!

Each card is A6 in size (105x148mm).

Price is for one pack of 8 cards.

The Wheel of Year

The Celtic calendar focused on the cyclical change of seasons. The original Celts celebrated four fire festivals, evenly spaced throughout the year, celebrating the transition of the sun throughout the seasons. These include Samhain, Imbolc, Bealtaine and Lughnasadh. These festivals are often combined with the solstices and equinoxes which are thought to be non-Celtic in origin, such as from Germanic Paganism or Neolithic sources. These ‘quarter festivals’ include Yule/Midwinter, Ostara, Litha/Midsummer and Mabon.

Seasonal changes were very important to the agricultural Celts, who depended on the Wheel of the Year to dictate when to plough, sow, harvest, and rest. The turning of the Wheel represents the continuing birth, death and rebirth of nature.

Please note that these dates correspond to the Northern Hemisphere.

When connecting with and celebrating the Wheel of the Year, we attune our energy to the cycles of Mother Earth and the natural world around us.

Samhain - 31st October (Halloween)
- Cross-quarter, Fire Festival
Samhain (SOW-in) represents the final harvest before the long winter. It’s a time to honour our ancestors and embrace the darker half of the year. This also marks the beginning of the New Year in many Pagan traditions.

Yule - 19th - 23rd December (Midwinter, Winter Solstice)
- Quarter Festival, Winter Solstice
Yule marks the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. From now on, the days become longer and we celebrate the return of the sun back to the earth. Also known as Alban Arthan (the Light of Arthur).

Imbolc - 2nd February (Candlemas)
- Cross-quarter, Fire Festival
Imbolc is a festival of fire and light, and in many Pagan traditions celebrates the Celtic hearth goddess, Brigid. It marks the midpoint between winter and spring. This is a festival of purification, a festival of light and fertility, and new beginnings.

Ostara - 19th - 23rd March (Spring Equinox)
- Quarter Festival, Spring Equinox
Ostara is the celebration of the spring equinox, and is a time to prepare for the beginnings of new life each year. The hours of day and night are equal, and light is overtaking darkness. Also known as Alban Eilir (the Light of the Earth).

Bealtaine - 1st May (May Day)
- Cross-quarter, Fire Festival
Bealtaine is a spring celebration that honours the fertility of the earth. A time of lust, passion, fire, and abundance.

Litha - 19th - 23rd June (Midsummer, Summer Solstice)
- Quarter Festival, Summer Solstice
Litha is the time of the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. It’s a celebration of light’s triumph over darkness and that of the bountiful beauty that light brings into our lives. Also known as Alban Hefin (the Light of the Shore).

Lughnasadh - 1st August (Lammas)
- Cross-quarter, Fire Festival
Lughnasadh (LOO-na-saa) is a celebration in honour of the Celtic god, Lugh. For others, this festival is observed as Lammas, and celebrates the early grain harvest. This is the first harvest festival, when plants drop their seeds to ensure future crops.

Mabon - 19th - 23rd September (Autumn Equinox)
- Quarter Festival, Autumn Equinox
Mabon is a time of thanksgiving that celebrates the second harvest, and the autumn equinox. The days and nights are once again equal, with the night continuing to grow longer. Also known as Alban Elfed (Light of the Water).
