Sagittarius 2020 River Thames London Wheel of Life Pilgrimage

Gatekeeper Wheel of Life events

Throughout the year in Britain we celebrate and connect the invisible forces of the earth and universe with our own inner light. We activate the Wheel of Life, celebrating in each of the 12 zodiacal areas in pilgrimage and expressive arts as community events. Capricorn starts the year in the Winchester area, and Sagittarius ends with a Thames River pilgrimage in London.

Sagittarius River Thames Pilgrimage in London

We meet at St Martin-in-the-Fields Cafe in the Crypt, if open, otherwise in the glass entrance to the Crypt.
Your Pilgrimage Leaders, Phyllis SantaMaria and Roberta Ardern, begin with a briefing and a reflection.

We then head at 13.00 to the very centre of London, to the Charles I statue just south of Trafalgar Square.

Each Pilgrim will receive an information leaflet with historical notes, poems that we use along the way.

Please wear layers, waterproofs and bring any musical instruments, flowers we will use in our reflections along the way.
