Lughnasadh is almost upon us; the first of the three harvest festivals (the other two being Mabon and Samhain). We are in what feels like the peak of summer, abundant life surrounds us awaiting harvest and preparations for the coming winter. Lughnasadh is a time to asses where you are in your journey, take pride in what has been achieved so far and make any improvements needed to ensure a bountiful harvest. Like at Litha, there is a sense of ripening but Lughnasadh also brings pruning. Sorting the wheat from the chaff as it were.
You can find full write up, history and traditions of the festival here along with some ideas for rituals and ways of connecting with the abundant energy present. Lughnasadh is more of a season than the particular day. It begins around the 1st of August and takes us up to Mabon in mid September as we harvest, gather and store the gifts of the earth to see us through Winter; it is also a time for some pruning of our personal journey’s. For this post I am offering 3 rituals to use in your practice throughout this time starting with Making Merry to mark the start of the season. Subscribe to gain access below.
