Who celebrates Wheel of the Year? Starting in December, eight annual festivals spaced roughly six to seven weeks apart are celebrated by pagans. This cycle is known as the Wheel of the Year.
How many festivals are there in the pagan cycle? The Intellectual Roots of the Cycle. Four of the eight festivals of the modern Pagan ritual calendar consist of the cardinal points of the sun’s progress through the year: the solstices at midsummer and midwinter, and the equinoxes of spring and autumn.
What does the pagan religion believe? Pagans believe that nature is sacred and that the natural cycles of birth, growth and death observed in the world around us carry profoundly spiritual meanings. Human beings are seen as part of nature, along with other animals, trees, stones, plants and everything else that is of this earth.
What gods do pagans worship? The pagans usually had a polytheistic belief in many gods but only one, which represents the chief god and supreme godhead, is chosen to worship. The Renaissance of the 1500s reintroduced the ancient Greek concepts of Paganism. Pagan symbols and traditions entered European art, music, literature, and ethics.
