Naming the Sabbaths

Part of altar at SabbatI have been doing quite a bit of thinking about the names of the Sabbaths lately. As I’m not Wiccan, I don’t find it very natural to use the Wiccan names of the Sabbaths, and instead I have decided to use other, and to me more fitting, names. I have made a sort of calendar under, with the dates for 2013 and the name I’ve chosen to use for the Sabbaths. I will try to use these names from now on. I have picked both an English and a Norwegian name, as I am a Norwegian, after all.

Date English name Norwegian name
1 February Festival of Lights Lysfestival
20 March Spring Equinox Vårjevndøgn
1 May May Day Maidag
21 June Midsummer Midtsommer
1 August Harvest Festival Innhøstningsfestival
22 September Autumn Equinox Høstjevndøgn
31 October All Souls Night Alle sjelers natt
21 December Midwinter Midtvinter

My next step will be to make a sabbath calendar, with the dates for a few years forward. I will make a page for it, as it will be easier for myself to find it again.

A New Home

I recently bought a new flat, and I am very excited about moving in to it. I am planning on going there today, as I want to do a house cleansing. I don’t thing there are specific bad energies there, not that I’ve noticed when I’ve been there, but it’s in a way something I want to do to make it mine. The plan is to live there for many years to come. Or at least I hope so.

So now I’m looking around the web to find some inspiration, before heading there to do the cleansing itself. I will bring my BoS, and take notes of what I do, which I think will come in handy later.
