Working with the Wheel of the Year

The Wheel of the Year is an annual cycle of seasonal festivals or sabbats. There are two solstices and two equinoxes known as quarter days, and four midpoints known as cross-quarter days.

Each of the eight festivals represents an energetic stage in the life cycle, making them a great time to work with your Tarot and Oracle cards.

I’ve created a unique spread journey for you to work with as you travel through the Wheel of the Year.

Each spread captures the energy of the festival and guides you to explore what it means for you.

Inside this pack, you get 8 separate journeys for each of the eight festivals on the Wheel of the Year. These spreads can be used year and year to expand on your personal growth and evolution as you go.

When is the next Wheel of the Year Festival? 

The next festival on the Wheel of the Year is Litha. Litha (pronounced Lith-ah) is celebrated at the point of the longest day and shortest night, also known as the Summer Solstice. Use the spread for Litha to connect with the energy of love, marriage and divination as celebrated at this time. 

Countdown to the Summer Soltice (Litha)
