Lughnassadh is the ancient fire festival, and one of the Great Sabbats, when Pagans mark the shortening days and celebrate the first harvest. His death reflected the dying of Lugh, the Sun God. The waning light heralded the coming of darkness and winter. The Goddess become the Reaper, and attends the God in His passing. Sober but not tragic, as the God says in

The Lord of the Dance
I sleep in the kernel and I dance in the rain;
I dance in the wind and in the waving grain;
And when you cut me down I care nothing for the pain:
In the spring I’m the Lord of the Dance once again!

A time for sharing so bring foods of all kinds to share, eg: corn, berries, apple cider, wine in a plastic bottle, corn bread, grained bread, grape juice, veggies, fruits etc.
Attuning to the season by sacrificing whatever is inappropriate in our lives, like fear or unrealistic expectations; by completing all projects and goals. Accept the responsibility as well as the rewards of our labors.

You can also bring the tools of your trade whatever it is to be blessed and thank the God/Goddess for their many blessings and your continued success. This symbolizes your ability to produce results. It will also ensure the satisfactory completion of your work, or bountiful harvest, at the Autumn Equinox to follow. Many successes to you all.

BRING HAND INSTRUMENTS -- drums, flutes, tambourines, claves, maracas, etc. AS IT IS A GREAT TIME FOR DANCING AND MERRIMENT.

Attire: suggested attire color white, black, yellow, orange (not required for attendance).
A fee of $10.00 in person $11.00 via online payments is required. (please bring receipt of online payment).

    Arg.. The kiddos are starting with cold symptoms. Weather's calling for rain. If they weren't getting sick I'd still go. I love dancing in the rain. :(

    Is seriously trying to keep up with these meetings.
    I've made so many plans and haven't showed up.

    I'll try my best to show up to this one as this will be the first meeting I'll attend. I can bring a flute but I can't play it very well.
