Sabbat Dates and Times for 2009

As I mentioned in the blog below, I looked up the dates and times of the sabbats according to the sun’s position. Below are the dates and times of the sabbats for this year:

Imbolc – start of spring – 315 degrees (15 degrees Aquarius) – February 3 at 11:46 a.m. EST
Lady Day/Ostara – vernal equinox – 0 degrees (sun enters Aries) – March 20 at 7:43 a.m. EDT
Beltane – start of summer – 45 degrees (15 degrees Taurus) – May 5 at 4:46 a.m. EDT
Midsummer – summer solstice – 90 degrees (sun enters Cancer) – June 21 at 1:45 a.m. EDT
Lughnasadh – start of autumn – 135 degrees (15 degrees Leo) – August 7 at 4:57 a.m. EDT
Harvestide – autumnal equinox – 180 degrees (sun enters Libra) – 5:18 p.m. EDT
Samhain – start of winter – 225 degrees (15 degrees Scorpio) – November 7 at 1:49 a.m. EST
Yule – winter solstice – 270 degrees (sun enters Capricorn) – December 21 12:47 p.m. EST

The dates and times for the relating to the solstices and equinoxes were taken from the Astrological Pocket Planner I use. The dates and times for the four major sabbats, Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnasadh, and Samhain were determined using an astrology program I have. I used a precise location to determine these times. If you are located in Toronto or in the Eastern time zone, the times I found using the astrology program should be a good approximation.
