Lughnasadh


Rainbow Pagans UK

On the eve of 1 August the feast of the Celtic god Lugh begins. It is a time of great natural magic for Craft folk as Mother Earth releases her bounty of the early harvests. To the ancient Celts this would have been a feat of amazing natural magic, and to us perhaps it still should be. Yes, we know the science of growing things and we have technology the Celts could never have dreamed of but the harvest is still at the mercy of nature as we cannot control the weather.

Lughnasadh is also a time of sacrifice as it represents the sacrifice of the horned god as he manifests through grain to sustain our existence therefore the reaping of the first crops signifies the god sacrifice.

I will be marking the beginning of Lughnasadh at sunset tonight, as I follow Celtic traditions and start the day at sunset…
