Lughnasadh The First Harvest Festival

In this article you will discover more about Lughnasadh. An excerpt from  Create A Dynamic Year – A Sacred Timings Handbook.

“Lughnasad, (pronounced loo-na-sah), is named after the sun god Lugh, and is the cross- quarter Wheel of the Year point following Summer Solstice. Also known as Lammas, it marks the starting point of the turn toward autumn. The cross-quarter days which fall between the solstices and equinoxes signal the turn toward the next season. For ease of timing, the day of the celebration became more focalized on a certain day, say August 1, when the energy of the cross-quarter day might vary by as much as a week. Astrologically, Lughnasad falls exactly between Summer Solstice and Autumnal Equinox.” ~ Lisa Michaels

Lughnasad is the first of three harvest festivals celebrated each year as the growing season begins to produce bountiful crops. Celebrating the harvest was an extremely important part of life that was deeply connected to the land and the growing cycle. Gratitude for the blessings of fruit and grain that would carry the community through the harsher days of winter expressed a heartfelt appreciation for the core of nature that sustains life.

The relationship between the abundant Earth Mother and the Solar Fire God is vital to the survival of the species. Those who honor the Wheel of the Year connect to this primal understanding, showing their gratitude and giving blessings back to the land. Just as any other being appreciates your gratitude when they have bestowed you with a gift, Nature also loves receiving your power prayers of thanks.

Lammas actually means “loaf mass” and was named from a Christian mass for honoring the grain that we grind into flour and then transform into food for our bodies. This process of transformation provides you with a wonderful example of how you can integrate all of your experiences, regardless of how they felt at the time, into food for the soul, food that wisdom rises from in order to nourish your life. During the week of Lughnasad, take a look around your life and notice where integration and the blessings of transformation may be showing up for you. Be sure to give thanks, celebrate the bounty of your harvest, and work with this powerful window to enhance your creations.
