Winter’s Cross Quarter and the Season of Candlemas


Feb 06 2021


7:00 pm - 8:30 pm



A Virtual Storytelling Event!

Halfway through each season, we come to its “cross-quarter,” an emotional moment when we turn away from the promise of new beginnings towards fulfillment. In winter, the cross-quarter happens at the beginning of February as Orion marches through the sky with his dogs. Variously known as Groundhog’s Day, Candlemas, and St. Brigid’s Day, the Winter’s Cross Quarter festivals celebrate sustaining the inner light as the days are growing longer through the remaining weeks of the season.

Star Lore Historian Mary Stewart Adams will share insights into the celestial picture behind this month’s festival season and how it can inform the year’s mood. As always, the program will include information about finding your way through the sky this season. A Zoom link will be sent to all registrants by the morning of the program.
