Rounding the Year: Sharing Seasonal Pictures & Words

As the first signs of spring appear I'm starting prompts to share seasonal pictures, art, crafts, words and other creativity. I'll continue this over the months ahead, inspired by my book, Pagan Portals - Rounding the Wheel of the Year. I'd love to encourage readers to record what's happening in nature in various ways including photographs, journalling, drawing or painting and crafting.

Here are ways to share the things you're doing or what you see out and about as the wheel turns:

  • Leave a comment on this post about what you're up to
  • Find my prompts to share on my Facebook Page: Lucya Starza Pagan Portals Author
  • Share on Instagram or X (formerly Twitter) with the tag #RoundingtheYear

The photo at the top captures snowdrops just starting to bud. I took the snap yesterday morning in my garden. They aren't quite out yet, but a few might bloom in the few days before Imbolc. This is time to nurture new ideas, hopes and wishes for the days and weeks ahead, even if they aren't yet fully formed. What's budding where you live or in your life?

My book offers more suggestions of ways to acknowledge the Wheel of the Year and celebrate the seasons in ritual, magic, folklore and nature. If you want to buy any of my books on witchcraft, magic and folklore really cheaply, you can take advantage of a January sale. My publisher Moon Books, which is part of Collective Ink, is offering 50 per cent off all ebooks until January 31st.
