Welcome to Lughnasadh - the first of the Wheel of the Year Solar Cycle harvest festivals honoring the harvest of wheat, apples, grapes and the energy of the sun in this late summer time.
Traditionally this was a festival lasting from mid-July to mid-August and was celebrated through communion, craftsman fairs, trade, baking, and coming together. This is a time for gratitude - gratitude for all of the elements that have gone into this harvest and what is to come. Pause...
Journal questions to explore -
What am I harvesting right now in my life? What has come to fruition and is ending its growth cycle?
What am I still working on and tending to for the next harvest celebration (Autumn Equinox)?
Is there anything I need to make peace with that has happened this year?
What did I create this year? Learn? Experience? And how can these things or lessons help support me in the coming months? How can I use these to cultivate what will sustain me in the coming months/years?
How can I create and support an abundance mindset in my life? Can I call on any beings, ancestors, allies, or guides to help me live a life of abundance and/or ask for abundance for others who may be struggling? Write a blessing, prayer or calling to invite this abundance.
