The Wheel of the Year

The Death of Llew - A Seasonal Interpretation

A seasonal interpretation of the eight Wiccan Sabbats. The wheel of the year, from Yule to Samhain. The lore, history,  and celebrations of the Wiccan Holidays. These sabbats are a major part of the Wiccan religion.

In most Pagan cultures, the sun god is seen as split between two rival personalities: the god of light and his twin, his 'weird', his 'other self', the god of darkness. They are Gawain and the Green Knight, Gwyn and Gwythyr, Llew and Goronwy, Lugh and Balor, Balan and Balin, the Holly King and the Oak King, etc. Often they are depicted as fighting seasonal battles for the favor of their goddess/lover, such as Creiddylad or Blodeuwedd, who represents Nature.
