Of nature’s theatre a play might we be
When Spring maidens dream dreams unstaid,
Scenes and acts yet voyaged to see
And candles lit, not snuffed or fade.
Nor gape a life be played unspent
But find fullness in such glorious score,
That Summer’s heat came and went
Undenied of ripened passion’s call.
For soon does come Autumn’s fading light
And Winter’s sabbath still upon the land;
The final curtain near in sight,
Triumphant bow and applause of hand.
But shifting balance of night knows not death.
Whence immortal son draws first breath.
This Southern Hemisphere Wheel of the Year Calendar, and its Companion Guide,
are beautifully presented, and offer a rich resource for those establishing and/or nurturing
an eco-friendly, Earth-centred spirituality, and who would like to practice it in tune with
their experience and location. There is also plenty for the experienced.
It is very pleasing to see such good research, the correct dates, sunwise direction, and
correspondences for the Southern Hemisphere (and particularly for the land of Australia),
all presented with beautiful artwork, in a very readable style, and with good links and
references for further research if desired. Please do take a tour of the information
offered here, and make the Calendar and the Companion Guide your own.

I absolutely love this calendar. The visuals are spectacular and I learnt so much from the Companion Guide, things that I never really considered before. Everything finally makes sense from a southern hemisphere perspective!
This is an astrological guide with an understanding of the seasons, nature and the night sky as I experience them where I live. A really valuable representation to navigate the solar year in addition to the eight festivals.
So much is incorporated into this calendar.
It has helped me really embrace the cyclical nature of the universe and how everything follows its own path. All the layers are beautifully presented and meld together to form a holistic portrayal of the calendar year.
