Wow!  I've really slipped on updating this blog!  It's been over 2 years since I even accessed my website.  I guess sometimes life really does get in the way! 

With Lughnasadh quickly approaching, I suppose it is only fitting to let go of the regrets of not keeping up with my website!

Lughnasadh (named after the Irish deity Lugh) is the first of three Harvest Sabbats.  It is the festival of regrets and farewells.  As the Sun God is waning, the Goddess is abundant and brings forth the harvest to get us through the winter.  Even as the Sun God wanes, He lives on inside the Goddess as Her child.

"Lughnasadh, also known as August Eve, Feast of Bread, Harvest Home and Lammas wasn't necessarily observed on this day; it originally coincided with the first reapings.  As summer passes, Wiccans remember its warmth and bounty in the food we eat.  Every meal is an act of attunement with nature, and we are reminded that nothing in the universe is constant." - Scott Cunningham, Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practioner

Take this time honor all that nature has given us and all we have to be grateful for. 

 
 
This Friday is the new moon.  Under the new moon, you can perform spells and magick to start anew.  Whether you are starting a new job, new classes, or a new you; the new moon is the best time to align the energies in your direction for the best chance of success in your new venture.  New moon magick is great for personal growth, healing and blessings; as well as a great time to cleanse and consecrate ritual items.
