Wheel of the Year
Artwork from my book, Spinning in Place.
"Draw a circle to represent the year: one complete
revolution around the sun. Make a mark at the top and the bottom, the left and the right, dividing the circle into four equal quarters. Let these represent the solstices and the equinoxes. Now rotate the whole thing about 45o and make the marks again. These marks fall midway between the others, dividing the circle into eighths. Call these the cross-quarter days."
