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.

Pure Imagination with Oracle Cards

Are you drawn to divination but not sure which type to use? Let the oracle cards open the world of cartomancy for you.

You may be familiar with Tarot, Runes, Ogham, and I-Ching, but how do oracle cards differ from these methods? Oracle cards can help you with insights and help you to find other ways to look at an issue.

This system of divination comes in a variety of topics and artistic styles which allow for a flexibility of interpretation and personalization. Decks have been designed using a variety of topics from flowers to fairies, fictional characters to pop-culture, and Divine beings to beings of the natural world.

Join us for an evening of exploring this divination tool that connects to our imagination and inner self. Our hands-on class will include selecting a deck (or how it chooses you), using and creating spreads, interpretation, creating your own, and putting it into action.

Bring your favorite deck(s) to unlock the wisdom and messages ready to be revealed to you. Don’t have one yet? No problem, pick one up from the many available at Tree of Life.

John Hyatt, aka Jan Tjeerd, has been working with runes and oracle cards for over a decade. In addition to teaching and readings at the Tree of Life, he hosts the Gifts of the Wyrd podcast (discussing inclusive, modern Heathen practices) and has created The Christmas Oracle deck as well as a deck based on DC Comic book characters. He is a member of the Troth and ADF and is active in San Diego's Pagan community as Gothi of the Kindred of the Northern Hammer (an inclusive Heathen group) and co-founder of Coast Oak Grove (Druids).
