The text on the back of this card is as follows:
Major events in the Celtic year are celebrated by Eight Festivals, four of which record stages of the Earth’s revolution around the Sun; Summer and Winter solstices, when the hours of daylight are at their longest and shortest, and the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes, when hours of daylight and darkness are exactly equal. Four Cross-quarter festivals fall half-way between the solar festivals and their celebration marks the start of each season,
Much imagery associated with these festivals is both spiritual and natural as the progress of the seasons reflects the life cycles of those who live on this ancient land.
If you seek them out, Earth spirits may share their joy and magic with you as you celebrate life’s mysteries within the Eight Festivals.
The flowers of early spring are the colours of hope and joy; bright yellow, imitating the light and warmth of the sun, which will increase and grow from this day onwards. At this point of exquisite balance of dark and light, the half moon shines on the mother blackbird, patiently incubating her precious new eggs. Mad March Hares box and dance from the sheer exultation of the season, accompanied by Eostre, Goddess of fertility of the spring, whose festival is still celebrated with eggs and ‘bunnies’.
