Lugnasad ritual at the grove nemeton. We honored Lug and Macha (pictured). The omens were Isa (Ancestors), Fehu (Land Spirits) and Laguz (Shining Ones). A powerful ritual, with wonderful people. Happy Lugnasad to all.

At Lugnasad, we are at the culmination of the dialogue with the land that began at Imbolg. At Imbolg, we welcomed the first stirrings of life. At Lugnasad, we celebrate the beginning of the harvest. Throughout, the tribe of men has kept an open dialogue with the land itself. We have honored the land. We depend on the land. With the aid of the Shining Ones, we have created a relationship of *ghosti with the land. The land has suffered- one of the names for Lugnasad in Old Irish is Bron Trogain 'The Sorrow of the Earth', because the earth has given of itself, has sacrificed her own children, in the form of the crops, so that the Tribe may survive another year.

"I will let my sickle down,
As the nourishing ear is in my hand,
I will raise my eye to the heights,
I will turn quickly on my heel to the right

As the sun travels from the eastern
Quarter to the west - from the northern quarter
with a smooth motion,

To the true center of the southern quarter."

Harvest Prayer, Carmina Gadelica

A fruitful Lugnasad to all from the Grove of the Midnight Sun! It is a picture-perfect sunny day here in Northern Michigan. The first fruits are on the vine, the breezes are balmy, and it is the sort of day when Lake Michigan likes to brew up a late-afternoon thunderstorm or two to send in onto the land and water the crops. Wherever you are, we wish you similar wonderful weather and a beautiful start to the harvest. Blessings from us to you! ... See MoreSee Less
