About the event
This Sabbat is a time to honor Lugh, God of craftsmanship, grain, Sun and late summer storms and Ceres, mother of Lugh, Goddess of the Harvest and agricultural abundance. Lugh is known for his many skills and his moniker is Lugh of the Long Arm for his spear accuracy. Lammas is another name for This Sabbat and it is christian for Loaf Mass.
As the first grains are harvested at this time, wheat, barley, corn, bread, whiskey
and beer are significant. Traditionally, bonfires were lit, with the ashes of previous bonfires scattered over the fields in order to bless the fields, cattle and people.
Lughnasadh was also an important time for handfastings, second to Beltane. Trial marriages in old Ireland would last a year and a day, with the option of ending the contract before the year was out.
Lughnasadh can be thought of as a time of personal reflection of our actions and deeds, and our gains and losses over the past year. It is a time when we start to reap what we started sowing in spring. This requires introspection and honesty as we look inside to examine our thoughts, feelings and decisions. We can identify events which turned out poorly and look for their lessons, as well as acknowledge successes and consider how to carry them forward. We can take the opportunity to clear away unnecessary things to make our own harvest more bountiful.
We can anticipate the return of Fall and treat this as the beginning of shadow season. The First Harvest reminds us to appreciate warmth and the comfort, energy and growth it gives us. We also honor abundance, for there will be more harvests!
Check how your intentions from Winter and Spring are developing. Decide to let go or commit entirely.
Make a crystal grid with carnelian, citrine, aventurine, golden topaz, obsidian, and moss agate. Set up orange and yellow candles.
Reflect on ways you have fine-tuned your social circle to those with whom you
feel perfect love and perfect trust. How do you encourage and invite this energy
