Please read ABOUT first!
To gather experience over countless lifetimes.

We Realize who and what we really are, and come to behave like That.

Ignorance of That and associated bad habits result in mistakes and consequential suffering.

The accumulation of experience eventually brings us to realize that we are not separate from others, which forms habitual devotion to the ultimate welfare of all.

This page displays upcoming events of interest to witches and occultists in general (until the year 2026).   Included are:

  • New Moon with zodiacal sign
  • Full Moon with zodiacal sign
  • Eclipses
  • Sun transition to a new zodiacal sign
  • Mercury retrograde and direct
  • Witch’s Esbat and Sabbath dates (see explanation below)

Times are shown adjusted to your local time, the area of North America Eastern Timezone (and in UTC -Coordinated Universal Time – in case this website is incorrect about your location – see below for usage instructions). If your timezone name is different, then look at the local time ticking away the seconds. If this time is correct (within a few minutes) for your location, then the times for the events will be exactly correct for your location, even though the time zone name is different.

For Witches:
Note that Esbat and Sabbath dates are calculated as: the evening closest to the celebrated event, that is not after the celebrated event.  If the event occurs on an evening (after 6pm local time), then that same evening is chosen for the celebration.

The 8 witches Sabbath dates used here are:

  • Candlemas – always the evening of February 2
  • Spring Equinox
  • Walpurgis Night (May Eve) – always the evening of April 30
  • Summer Solstice
  • Lammas Eve – always the evening of August 2
  • Autumn Equinox
  • Grand Sabbath, Hallowe’en – always the evening of October 31
  • Winter Solstice

The evenings for the equinox and solstice Sabbaths are calculated as described above.

In case this website cannot determine your correct location, you can use the UTC times given to find out when the events occur in your location.  Simply find out what your time zone is, in hours from UTC.  For example, in the Eastern U.S. and Canada, the timezone is -05:00, which means, simply subtract 5 hours from the UTC times shown here.  In South Africa, the timezone is +02:00, so simply add 2 hours to the UTC times shown here.  (NOTE: If you’re on Daylight Savings Time, then add one hour to the result.)  Don’t know your local timezone?  Click here, then in the box called “Current Times” type your city or country. You’ll see your current time, and beneath the current date, you’ll see your timezone relative to UTC, and whether you’re on “Standard Time” or “Daylight Savings Time”.

    This astrological information is very convenient, particularly with the specific -local- time. Saves me hours of work calculating with an Ephemeris and Atlas. Thanks kindly for making life less complicated. It’s also great for groups that work as close as possible to the actual times of the Moon phases and Solar ingresses. Great Idea!!

    Brightest Blessings,

    Many heartfelt thanks on behalf of myself and my coven The Temple of the crescent moon, as wiccans may we always find love and understanding unconstitutional love for all members of the craft, regardless of what path we follow, we are all one united pagans.

  • hi i know its not your concern but im new to the craft reason because of my dreams when i realize i talk to someone about these dreams it was my past life i was a witch so what do i do or handle this because when i use my cards i keep hearing and seeing voices and shadows please help me

    • Mer-Amun says:


      You may not like what I have to say.

      When a person is hearing voices, seeing beings, and shadows against their will, it is not a sign of being a witch. The “against their will” part is an indication that you can’t handle what’s happening by yourself, because it is against your will or without your intention. When you can’t handle something by yourself, then you need help handling it.

      The most difficult parts of being psychic are two:
      1) being able to tell the difference between naturally active, colorful imagination that we all have, and real psychic awareness which we also all have, but typically ignore. We must learn to know the difference, and this is very difficult to learn.
      2) being able to put imagination and also psychic awareness in perspective, so that it is just as comfortable and normal to us as talking to a friend at school or work. We must also be able to ignore these things if and when we want to, just as we can ignore people at a shopping mall.

      If you cannot accomplish the above two things by yourself, then you must get help to accomplish these things.

      My sincere advice is to seek a professional trained counselor, psychiatrist, or psychologist to help you learn to manage these things. When you then find yourself able to easily tell the difference between imagination and true psychism, and are perfectly comfortable with both, not afraid, and easily able to pay attention or ignore as you wish, then you will no longer need help.

      I sincerely hope that you find the help that you very clearly need, so that you aren’t afraid or confused any longer.

    Thank you for the calendar, and in my local time! Very helpful. Blessed Be

    • Mer-Amun says:

      Sorry that the calendar is no longer in your local time. The service I was subscribing to, that provided local timezones for everyone has gone out of business. I will re-instate local times at some time in the future, after having purchased another service first.

  • Thank you for your astronomical updates.
