Suggested Dates for Seasonal Ceremonies
MoonCourt, Blue Mountains, Australia. This sacred space was the home of PaGaian Cosmology, and where so much was learned, documented and celebrated. It is now in new hands, continuing Her Creativity in a new way. She changes everything She touches. Everything She touches, changes.
Below are the dates when the Seasonal Moments could be celebrated ceremoniously in Australia, Southern Hemisphere. It will be the opposite Seasonal Moment for Northern Hemisphere on the same dates.
I have added in the date and time of the actual Seasonal Moment EST Australia. Other global times can be found at archaeoastronomy.com 2019 for 2019. The date for the ceremony has generally been set on the Saturday closest to the actual astronomical Moment of the Seasonal transition: this is for general convenience, but the date of celebration could be varied for other reasons such as regional flora and fauna. I think it is special to celebrate right on the Moment when possible.

Please contact Glenys
if you are interested to be on the Seasonal list, which is an invitation and inspiration to celebrate the Moment wherever you are.
PaGaian Cosmology Meditations is a beautifully produced collection of 3 CDs and a booklet, also available in digital format, which supports the preparation and performing of ritual /ceremony for each Seasonal celebration.
Each season has two tracks: one which helps you prepare your ritual space while the other guides you through ceremony. Includes music and meditations spoken by Glenys. Whether you are new to ritual celebration or an experienced ritualist, this work will support and inspire you.
May you enjoy and celebrate Her Creativity.
