Lammas is the time to celebrate the grain harvest and more. Image © Getty Images; Licensed to About.comLammas, or Lughnasadh, is fast approaching, and that means it's time to start planning your rituals to celebrate the Sabbat. It's a time to mark the first harvest, break bread with friends, and honor the god Lugh, if he's part of your tradition. Use this season as a time of reflection and thought, working protection magic, and honoring the gifts of the earth. If you're one of our Southern Hemisphere readers, you're getting ready for Imbolc, so be sure to read the links in the sidebar to the right! Follow Pagan/Wiccan on Twitter or Join Me On Facebook. Celebrate with a Bread Sacrifice RitualGrain is the heart of Lammas, and the beginning of the harvest season is a milestone in many societies. Once the grain is threshed and milled it is baked into bread and consumed, honoring the spirit of the grain god. This ritual celebrates both the harvest and the sacrifices we make each year, as well as the sacrifice of the grain god. Read Full Article Rite Honoring Lugh, Master of SkillsLugh was known to the Celts as a god of craftsmanship and skill -- in fact, he was known as the Many-Skilled God, because he was good at so many different things. In one legend, Lugh arrives at Tara, and is denied entrance. He enumerates all the great things he can do, and each time the guard says, "Sorry, we've already got someone here who can do that." Finally Lugh asks, "Ah, but do you have anyone here who can do them ALL?" This ritual is a chance for you to brag a little bit and take pride in your own skills and abilities! Read Full Article Lammas Harvest RitualIn some Wiccan traditions, Lammas is the time of year when the Goddess takes on the aspects of the Harvest Mother. The earth is fruitful and abundant, crops are bountiful, and livestock are fattening up for winter. However, the Harvest Mother knows that the cold months are coming, and so she encourages us to begin gathering up what we can. This is the season for harvesting corn and grain, so that we can bake bread to store and have seeds for next year's planting. This ritual celebrates the beginning of the harvest season and the cycle of rebirth, and can be done by a solitary practitioner or adapted for a group or coven setting. Read Full Article The Magic of Lammas/LughnasadhLammas is a time of excitement and magic. The natural world is thriving around us, and yet the knowlege that everything will soon die looms in the background. This is a good time to work some magic around the hearth and home.
