Lughnasadh also known as Lammas is a Gaelic festival marking the beginning of the harvest season. Main themes of Lughnasadh are harvest and craftsmanship. This is the season where we are caught in between the energies of the end of Summer moving to the middle Autumn.
Since it's that time of the year where we begin reaping what we've sown, here are some ideas to practice your spellworks for your hearth, home, talents and skills.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
A Tarot deck
Grapes or Wine
Corn or popcorn
Corn doll or poppet (this will represent you)
Fall colors (for decoration)
A Tarot Journal
1. Set up your Lughnasadh altar with the tools mentioned above. Be creative!
2. Cleanse your sacred space.
3. Light up your candles.
4. Enter your Lughnasadh Warior soul and set the spell's intention for gratitude as you are now going to reap and harvest what you have planted on your previous 'season'.
5. Cast this spell.
The golden sun is about to rise,
Let my wishes ascend the skies.
Soon the earth will be orange and crimson,
Let my fields be abundant as I have envisioned.
6. Shuffle your Tarot deck and use the Lughnasadh Spread below.
7. Hold your corn doll as you meditate on the results. Take your time.
8. Write everything you saw, hear, and feel when you cast the spell on your journal.
9. When you are done, ground and disconnect by blowing out the candle.
Creative Tip: Use the wine for toasting after completing the spell. *wink*
