SABBATS- 8 holy-days
the solstices and equinoxes are based on solar/earth alignment. solstices occur when the sun is the highest (summer solstice) or lowest (winter solstice) in the sky- whereas equinoxes occur when there is equal day and night (spring and fall).

the cross quarter days are the midpoints of the solstices and equinoxes and there are 3 ways to calculate them. there are the calendar dates- which are unchanging each year. there are the solar dates which occur when the sun is at 15 degrees of the fixed signs respectively (which is the precise midpoint between any solstice and equinox). and there are lunar dates which correspond to the new and full moons in scorpio and aquarius. the solar and lunar dates have cosmic alignments associated with them- whereas the calendar dates do not.  (once upon they did- they aligned with the pleiades culminating, setting, rising or conjunct the sun- but that was over a thousand years ago and they no longer align in the 21st century)

below are the dates for the sabbats this year for those living in the northern hemisphere:
(for southern hemisphere you reverse them- so spring for north is fall for south, imbolc for north is lammas for south, etc…)

all times are pacific time- please adjust for your time zone accordingly
