As we transition out of the blazing heat of July, we begin to slowly shift into the cooler days of the harvest season. With the coming of August, we enter the first of the three harvest festivals known as Lughnasadh. Lughnasadh (also known as the Lammas or the grain harvest) is one of the eight sabbats of the Wheel of the Year that marks the start of the harvest season. This is the time of which we begin to reap the rewards of the labor we’ve put in the last few months and give thanks to the earth for its abundant harvest. However, Lughnasadh also means we begin preparation for the cooler months of the second half of the year and begin to shift our focus towards the act of slowing down. Therefore, this is a very significant time of mental and physical change for everyone. And today, we’re going to talk all about it.
In this article, we're going to go over everything having to do with Lughnasadh. From its history to its correspondences, traditions, and a few ways you can celebrate it today, let’s dive in and get started with everything you need to know about this merry sabbat.
The moon is considered to be one of the most divine sources of healing energy when it comes to spiritual practices. Connecting directly with our soul energy, ritual practices have been based around lunar cycles for centuries. From dances in the woods on the full moon to powerful intention-setting rituals on new moons, the moon guides us to journey within ourselves to set our inner magic free. But if dancing naked in the forest isn’t your thing, don’t worry, there are plenty of other ways to harness the moon’s energy in a modern sense, and one of the most popular ways to do that is through moon water.
Moon water is one of the most simple and common practices to perform to collect the moon’s energy and can be done in just a few minutes by anyone with access to water and a container. Here's a simple beginner's guide to making moon water at home and how you can use it in your daily spiritual practices.
