Lammas 2012
« on: July 19, 2012, 07:02:16 PM »

Share plans or rituals here if you like. :)

I will be on vacation for the next week or so and Lammas will be upon us when I return. For some reason, I really like this Sabbat. I think it's because I can feel it a bit in the air and start to anticipate Samhain. I hope to go pick wild berries if there are any left when we get back. If I get a good crop, I will try making some wild berry cordials to open at Yule.

Lammas falls on the festival of Victoria (Victory) and Spes (Hope) this year. I'll be making an altar for the two outside under my oak tree. Around dusk I'll go out and read a couple of hymns before giving and offering of beef and wine. Hopefully the weather will be nice enough to start a fire and make these burnt offerings. Afterwards I'll offer up some prayers for our troops and those in distress around the world. Although it isn't traditional I associate Vesta and Bacchus with this holiday since both offer up hope and conquer woe. Because of this I'll include an offering of corn/flour and grapes to the Them.

Our local CUUPS group is doing a gathering this Saturday. I missed going to the Midsummer gathering, so I really want to make this one.

I would normally go to the CUUPs group ritual, but with the hubs gone, I'll have to pass. I'm not so sure what I'll do now, if anything.

Looks like we are probably going to a CD release party for our friends Tuatha Dea at the pub.  The event is being billed publicly as a Lugnasadh celebration so us Pagans gonna rock the house. :yeah:

Thanks for reminding! I'm sorry to always be so northern hemisphere-centric. :shame:

I actually did end up going to the CUUPs ritual. Another member told me she was bringing her children and that they offered to help reign in and play with my little one. It was a beautiful ritual and it was nice that I got to participate without worrying too much about my Pixie!

I have also decided to have a Lammas mini-feast with my best friend on Wednesday. We'll both bake bread, save some as an offering, and then pig out on bread, cheese, berries, and perhaps some wine! I'm looking forward to it.

Well, I did not make it to the berry patch in time for Lammas, but I plan to head out there this weekend. The kids found an overgrown zucchini in the garden so we are making zucchini muffins this morning. I do think I will try this simple ritual I just found http://www.themodernpagan.net/?p=406 tonight. I've been feeling the pull to get back into doing monthly rituals and am hoping this ritual will be the ticket to overcoming my inertia. Blessed Lammas/Lughnasadh/Imbolc, everyone!

Same to you EM!   :D  We watched the beautiful full moon rise over the Tennessee River a while ago.  Huge and orange - with lightning bugs and cicadas as a side!   :loveheart:
