The 8 sabbats mark the journey of the seed through the cycle of life, and celebrate the changes in seasons brought on by the cycle of the sun. Each sabbat is a new time of change, a time of new beginnings and old endings.
The key to properly celebrating the Sabbats does not lie in what rituals you should do or what traditions you need to follow. The key to properly appreciating the sabbats for what they are is to recognize and appreciate the cycles around you, and reflect on how the same cycles move you and your world, and then learning to flow with those cycles. Flowing with the cycles is nothing more than understanding their purpose and accepting that it is inevitable.
The Traditions of The sabbats are nothing more than tools for you to express your joy, respect, faith and love of Nature and all that she encompasses.
