  1. Gosh, that’s an interesting website. I wonder if this means that – flipping the sabbat calendar as we do in Australia – that our Lughnasad will be Feb 3rd? Suppose so.

  2. Oh poo! I wouldn’t worry about that. But I’m wondering if the Celtic pastoral festivals are actually strictly – or at all – astronomical, as are the solstices and equinoxes? Sure, they are astronomical in that they occur in conjunction with stellar happenings, but historically are they astronomical or pastoral? Or, can these things actually be separated? I mean obviously the Celtic pastoralists were looking at the sky. The Australian Aboriginals – from what I can gather, not being an Aboriginal myself – combined earth and sky happenings in their seasonal calendar(s). I’m sure all ancient peoples did.
