The Solitary Ritual Series

Holidays and holy days are better with friends and family. But many Pagans maintain solitary practices. Even if you work with a group, sometimes you can’t be with them for one reason or another. And sometimes your group meets on a convenient day but you feel the need to celebrate on the exact day. This is a series of rituals for the Wheel of the Year that can be done on your own.
