Heat! Productivity! Success! Growing Darkness! These and many other themes join with the baking of bread and early harvest celebrations of Lunasa. What could better exemplify heat and productivity than the casting of molten metal into Atheopagan medallions? Check it out!
The growing darkness has already given us wonderful views of Comet Neowise. Though the comet is effectively gone, the Perseid meteor shower is right around the corner, August 11-14.
As a special Lunasa treat, check out this Lammas music from Bart Everson. It could be part of a ritual, solitary observation, or just having around now.
Some of the ways many of us are celebrating were recently published. For my family, celebrations with our annual Lunasa blueberry harvest and evening ritual will be today! We are also going on a wilderness quest for the glowing stones of awe – Yooperlites!
For some of us, the celebrations will be later this week – the actual midpoint between the Solstice and the Equinox is August 7th. However you are celebrating (including Imbolc celebrations in the Southern Hemisphere), may your be celebration be blessed.
