Simple Explanation of How Coven Life’s Tries to Incorporate the Northern and Southern Hemispheres Esbats, Sabbats, our Open Chats

 

Coven Life’s Coven invites anyone who would like to attend any of our gatherings and/or open chats to join us. The dates and times along with the link for Coven Life’s Chatroom can be found under Coven Life’s Events found on the right hand side of covenlife.co Homepage. Lady Beltane has to approve your entrance into the Chatroom. She does this weekly and up to 5 minutes before a father in or open chat.

Being the Coven’s High Priestess I want our members and guests to know our coven covers the difference in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres Sabbats and Esbats. Alternating the celebration date between the Southern’s regular calendar and the Northern one, as there is a small window when both hemispheres have the same date. I use Melbourne, Victoria, Australia for time and date in the Southern Hemisphere because that is the closest time to where our wonderful Priestess Hypatia lives. I use Central Time for the Northern Hemisphere because I live in that time zone.

I believe for a coven to truly be spiritual family we need to celebrate the things we have in common as well as our differences. This will include starting in the new year, based on the Celtic, on the day after Samhain (pronounced sow-en)  November 1, 2019 in the North. This is going to seem like my math is way off but for next new year day but our year is going to be 18 months long so we can celebrate the new year using the Southern Hemisphere’s Wheel of the Year and it’s Samhain is celebrated on May 1st. So our our next new years day will be May,1,2021. We will start including regular holidays around the world not just in the United States. I have found a list of international holidays that I will post soon. Please read it over and if a major holiday from your country is missing please put it in the comment section. Thank you!
