Wheel of the Year

Lammas Grain Ripening in the Sun

August 1

Lammas,(LA-mas) or "Loaf Mass" (Anglo-Saxon), also known as Lugnasadh (Irish Celt), Lùnasdal (Scottish), Calan Aust (Welsh), Lugunassatis (Gaul), and Feast of First Fruits, is celebrated on or around August 1st. Lammas celebrates the first of the major harvest festivals of the year, that of grain or "Corn".

In England during the medieval era tenants were required to present to their landlord the first of the freshly harvested wheat crop. The first corn from this harvest was baked into a ceremonial loaf and given as an offering to the Gods.The last sheaf of corn was not consumed but kept back and made into a effigy to represent the spirit of the corn and the harvest, sometimes called John Barlycorn. The effigy was placed at the center of the feasting table and then next year when the fields are being prepared for the sowing of new crops, it was ploughed back into the soil so that the spirit of the sun and the corn did not die.

Among pagans, (especially those with Celtic roots), the most common name for this holiday is Lughnasadh, (loo-na-sa), in honor not of the God Lugh, but that of his foster mother Tailtiu. Tailtiu died while clearing the plain of Breg in County Meath for agriculture. Lugh instituted funerary games called Áenach Tailteann in her honour, which continued to be celebrated as late as the 18th century.

The daylight is now visibly waning as the mature Lord of the Forest and Field becomes more the Wise Sage and his power awareness begins to pass from without to within. The Pregnant Mother Goddess rules beside Him as they both bask in the bounty of Nature in this, the beginning of the harvest season.

Friday August 11

Shamanic Goddess Circle

Create your Eclipse Alchemy Crystal Altar for the Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017.

Initiation occurs August 11 as the Perseid Meteor Shower rains streaks of Message Fire to ignite your Crucible of Change. Big energy and major shifts are ahead. How do you want the flow to go for you?

We'll use our crystals and some of Diana's to build a group Crystal Altar and charge it up with our willingness to transmute the Shadows into new Light.

In Guided Journey we'll receive our own personal Message Fire to take to our home altars. When the Shadow Vibration is released, we’ll be ready, and Alchemize the fear out of it!

BRING crystals you would like to have as part of your home altar. And, of course, Diana will have many for sale.

AND - as always you are invited to dress like the Goddess you are! Plus, spontaneous dancing may occur!

Inspired by my own experiences, teachers and wise advice from The Goddess.

About the Shamanic Goddess Circle

Reawaken the Divine Feminine within you and reclaim your natural, wildish nature. Did you forget you were a Goddess in order to survive through the chaos of this world? Sink your roots into the ground and feel into the life-giving energy available to us all as women.

Every month is different - just like we are. Join in this open Circle and journey down the powerful rivers of feminine intuition and healing magic. You'll learn and experience shamanic techniques for personal growth and healing and discover your own personal Goddess self.

Ocean Magic Wrap Bracelet Workshop

Limited to 30 participants, so sign up early!

Calling all mermaids, sirens, sea dragons and lovers of Mother Ocean!

More than your typical jewelry making class! This class takes on a creative journey to explore the power and beauty of the sea. Each participant will choose from ocean themed magical charms which hold symbolic messages of hope, support and healing.

A guided meditation will allow us to explore the personal message that mother ocean and the water element hold for us. Aromatherapy will also be used to enhance our experience. With this knowledge as our guide, we will create bracelets using natural ocean themed beads such as larimar, moonstone, shells and pearls. You will learn about the healing properties of these materials as you create, and your charms will be incorporated into the design.

Your finished creation will be a beautiful reminder of your connection to the sea. No jewelry making experience is needed and all materials will be provided.
