5 Rituals for Lammas & Lughnasadh

July 22, 2020 11:12 pm Published by

Lammas, or Lughnasadh, is one of the four cross-quarter days on the Celtic Wheel of the Year. This holiday, celebrated by ancient European pagans, marks the beginning of the harvest season.  The name Lughnasadh comes from “Lunasa,” which means August in Gaelic. Lammas is the English word for this harvest festival, which is Anglo-Saxon for “loaf mass.” I tend to use both names, as I have both Irish and English ancestry.  At the beginning of the harvest season, the themes of this holiday are abundance, gratitude, harvest, and honoring the fruits of our labors and intentions throughout the year thus...

I’ve been on a writing break after completing three new books this year. Today I’m dipping my toe back in and sharing a baby blog post with you! I’ve been feeling called to talk more about processing emotions as an empath. I’m not going to dive into what an empath is, because I’ve already shared a post all about it, here.

It feels like this because that’s basically what’s happening. The intensity of emotions arising in... Continue Reading

Eclipses can seem scary, and they are certainly a powerful energy! Generally, eclipses are thought to be wild cards, magnifying the energy of a new moon (for a solar eclipse) or a full moon (for a lunar eclipse). I like to think of eclipses as portals for endings and beginnings —things may be “eclipsed out” or “eclipsed in.” It’s common for births, moves, engagements, new jobs, break-ups, new relationships, and more to happen around eclipses and during eclipse season. Eclipses can also be powerful illuminators, bringing hidden truths and feelings to the light for us to work with and heal... Continue Reading

3 Rituals for Letting Go

What is your relationship with letting go? Ritual and magical practice can help us with more than manifesting, attracting, and calling in. It can also help us shed, let go, and transform ourselves and parts of our lives.  The winter season invites us to incubate, release, and hibernate. It is an ideal time for release work (as well as the fall!). The phases of the moon that correspond to release are all the waning phases – the waning gibbous moon, the last quarter moon, the waning crescent moon, and the dark moon. Learn more about the phases of the moon with... Continue Reading

The winter solstice, or Yule, is the shortest day and longest night of the year. Yule is a sabbat on the Wheel of the Year that marks midwinter and even though it’s the darkest time of the whole year, it represents rebirth. If you’re new to The Wheel of the Year, you can find more about it here. After Yule, each day begins to get a little more light and a little less dark. It’s a time to celebrate the return of the light.  Yule is associated with evergreen, holly, ivy, mistletoe, red, white, green, gold, and fire. Sounds a... Continue Reading
