Seasonal rituals and events

If you live in a part of the world that has different seasons, you’ve probably noticed that each season has its own energy and personality. As such, it’s not uncommon for your mood to change with the seasons. For someone living in Florida, where there is less variation in the seasons, the energy they are used to will be different than what they would experience if they lived in a place with more pronounced seasonal differences.

Where the seasons vary widely, the air can vary from month to month. It might appear crisper in October and lighter in May. However, enjoying the weather and adjusting your wardrobe aren’t the only ways to mark the changing of the seasons. You can also honor these seasonal transitions by fully acknowledging and celebrating them, which for many people ties into personal, cultural, or religious rituals and habits.

There are four major seasonal events per year. These originate from the pagans who incorporated nature and the seasons into their religions and celebrations. For every season and seasonal event, there are different seasonal rituals and practices that can help us best honor that time of year.

Spring Equinox, Ostara

During the vernal equinox, everything awakens from its long sleep. There are splashes of color everywhere. Many people already celebrate the season by painting eggs, a tradition historically linked to Easter. However, there are other seasonal rituals you can use to celebrate this awakening of the earth.

With spring approaching soon, schedule a morning to get up early and greet the dawn. Starting your day with a hello to the sun, and a long walk observing all the signs of spring’s arrival can be a beautiful way to celebrate the end of the cold season and the arrival of warmer, longer days.

If you didn’t plant anything this fall, now is the time to plant some of your favorite flowers. If you do this while spring is still early, you can enjoy them later in the season and all summer long.

Summer Solstice, Litha

A popular quote from an old song is: “Summertime and living is easy.” Long, hot days of sunshine, fun and friends deserve to be celebrated as often as possible. One of the seasonal rituals you can use to honor this time is a bonfire, a tradition generally enjoyed at the end of a long day. This is a way of making the blazing sun burn a little longer, symbolizing that the sun shines longer than it is dark.

Just as farmers are busy tending to their harvest to ensure it manifests in the fall, we can tend to our own desires. Write down what you want to happen in your life and then burn the paper with your written intention in the campfire.

You are also welcome to prepare a meal that includes seasonal fruit and vegetables. Be sure to use colorful foods to embody the vibrant, bold nature of summer.

Autumn Equinox, Mabon

There’s a new chill in the air. The days are getting shorter and people are returning to their warm homes. During this time, people gather their harvest and prepare for the long, cold winter months.

Take advantage of the numerous fruits and vegetables and spend a day canning your favorites so you can enjoy them throughout the winter season.

This is also an amazing time to go through your home and perform a cleansing ritual. Open your windows to enjoy the enduring warmth of the season as you perform a spiritual cleansing with rainwater, salt, and sprigs of rosemary. These seasonal rituals show your appreciation for the current season while preparing you for winter to come.

Winter Solstice, Jul

Now the days are shorter and most people have retired to their homes. A fabulous way to honor the season is to bake holiday treats that you associate with that time of year. If you like, add some spices like nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon to a saucepan with water and some orange zest, then let it simmer on the stove. This fills your home with warm, soothing scents.

Of course, don’t forget to bring some nature into your home as well. You can incorporate natural elements into your interior by purchasing wreaths, Christmas logs, Christmas trees or anything else that allows you to bring a little bit of the outside world into your home! These seasonal rituals give you the opportunity to honor family traditions from your youth and pass them on to the next generation while staying connected to nature.

Why seasonal rituals are important

Recognizing and celebrating these seasonal turning points can help us get in touch with what each season has to offer. Spring tends to give us more energy and fills us with joie de vivre. Summer is a time of relaxation and can bring out some of our laziness tendencies. Fall can get us thinking about internal activities and projects, while winter closes the year by encouraging us to hibernate a bit and focus on our families.

However you choose to celebrate the different seasons and whatever rituals you have for them, enjoy each one as thoroughly as possible. Surrender fully to the happiness and abundance they can bring into your life.
