The Celts divided the year into eight main high days or Sabbats. Four are associated with the two equinoxes and the two solstices. The other four fall at dates in between these points and are called the Sacred Fire Festivals.
The Celts believed that the impact of the full moon’s energy and influence was felt for three days before and three days after each full moon.
This series is made in Buckinghamshire where members of the Pagan Federation, consisting of druids and witches perform their rituals at The Millennium Medicine Wheel, a stone structure set on sacred Green Space in Willen North Park, Milton Keynes. The stones have been positioned to be in alignment with the earth’s natural powerful energies, and it is said that if prayers are offered at the centre or ‘source’ of the wheel, those wishes are amplified.
