Lughnasa is the festival that marks the beginning of the harvest and named after the Celtic god, Lugh who was a skilled Warrior and the God of Light.
At lughnasa our ancestors gathered to celebrate the manifestation and abundance of a new harvest. And so too we now are invited to do the same thing with a modern twist.
So we reflect on questions such as:
- What’s turning up in your life right now?
- What are you harvesting that you’ve been working on so diligently all year?
- Can you see the fruits of your labour?
- What are you grateful for?
- How do you celebrate your life?
Lugh had many talents so it’s also a great time to explore new talents and gifts (and everyone has at least one!) Or to celebrate what you are good at. He is associated with Aine, the Sun goddess and together they ask us to reflect on the balance of our inner male and female.
