Eclectic sounds fitting then!
I love to read especially things that have to do with how people lived before the 1970’s all the way back to ancient times. I read all the time, my Kindle Unlimited list is honestly ridiculous. I have one shelf double-layered with actual books. I like to learn & read & write… mostly as past times…
or hobbies. I have a ton of those
If you’re interested we do have a Where in the World are the Witches? GROUP POLL! 2022 that will have a general area of where people are from, then there’s a second one in the first that narrows it down a bit more. It’s in a category that you can’t access if you aren’t logged into your account.
Today is Sunday so tomorrow there will be a new Merry Meet Monday post for the upcoming week with happenings in & out of the forum. It’s a great place to meet & talk to other members within the forum that are in & out throughout the days.
Hi @andre! I’m Amethyst from Southern West Virginia here in the States. Welcome to the forum!
I second going through the courses, they will help you learn and grow as a witch. Also, keep an eye out for a post on the forum called Merry Meet Monday – Forum News. That will let you know what kind of activities we’ve got going on, so you can jump in and have some fun.
If you have any questions, just ask and someone will pop up to help you out. I look forward to getting to know you better!

Sabbats in the Southern Hemisphere
There may be some good information contained within this post & you can look into Southern Hemisphere Information on the site itself. Theres also a printable page to help you follow the Southern Wheel Southern Hemisphere Printable Wheel
We have at least a few witches that celebrate the wheel to the reverse of the Northern Hemisphere.
If you have any other questions, please let us know!
If you want more in-depth information than what the lovely and talented @Siofra_Strega has given you, there’s a book called A Wiccans Walk in Oz - Perspectives from the Southern Hemisphere that might help you out. I haven’t read it myself but it looks interesting.
Merry meet @andre,
Welcome to the forum- it’s a pleasure to meet you!
No worries, Andre! I’m assuming you are in the Southern Hemisphere, yes? You are right that you can absolutely still celebrate the 8 Sabbats- you are free to choose whether you want to follow the Northern calendar or use the reversed version suited for seasons in the South.
Siofra and Amethyst shared some great resources, and know that you aren’t alone! There are plenty of folks here in the forum who celebrate the Southern Wheel of the Year or who follow their own seasonal celebrations. Feel free to explore and do what feels most right to you!
Hi! I know you’ve gotten a few great resources on the Wheel of the Year for the southern hemisphere so far! I just wanted to share a podcast episode that I recently did about creating your own celebration calendar based on your local area and what’s important to you
