Happy Week of the Full Moon!

Transforming under The Full Moon in Capricorn and Lunar Lammas on Tuesday July 19th Wednesday July 20th and Thursday July 21st; I am thankful for the strength and abundance in my Wild Garden and the much-needed rain that finally came. I have been harvesting Plantain, Knotweed, Spearmint, Pepper Grass, Bee Balm, Mullein Flowers, Black Raspberries, Day Lilies, Lambsquarters, Evening Primrose, and Creeping Bellflowers.

Lammas is a time of gratitude and prosperity. It is also known as Lughnasadh (LOO-nah-sah or LOO-nah-sahd) and is the festival of the first harvest. (This Sabbat takes place on the New Moon in Leo August 2nd here in the Northern Hemisphere.)
For Christian Aspects of this event; some history and concepts are available here.
For Pagan Ways of celebrating this event; some history and practices you might want to try can be found here.
You can adapt the themes of Lughnasad and Lammas to create your own ceremony for honoring the passing of the ligh and the reaping of the grain. Here are a few ideas from School of the Seasons.
Capricorn Full Blessing Moon and in Vedic and Hindu Tradition, it is Guru Purnima. The Special Full Moon, one a year, is a time of honoring those that have been and are our teachers.  Find out more about these at Goddessrising MoonBlog.

August Theme:
Radical Visibility Fearlessly, Authentically Me

This theme is a call to:

  • Living life fully, so connected to our passion and purpose that it's no longer compelling to spend time and energy worrying about trying to be perfect or have it all figured out.
  • Share the gifts you've been given the opportunity to cultivate without hesitation 
  • Be fully and authentically seen as who we are without leaking mental, creative, emotional, and energetic energy processing what we think about it or think others think about it 
  • Not letting what other people think, what we think, or what we think others think get in the way of fully being who we are

On Tribal Connections


“It is vital for them to receive and be nourished as continual giving out ends in depletion, an increasingly common health problem. Women Instinctively know how to nourish each other, and just being with each other is restorative.”  READ MORE AT “Why Women Need a Tribe
 
I will be Calling in the Directions at 7:45pm instead of doing it before everyone arrives. This will also give us about 15 minutes to clear out any junk from the day that might get in the way of our ability to be fully present in the Circle.
At 9:15pm, I will Open the Circle, Never Breaking but expanding and  releasing the protective boundaries around the Sacred Space.
Also, sharing a Note to self… Reminding Myself that my intention for the Circle is to: Facilitate a Safe, Secure, Solid Sacred Space which promotes Unity and allows for Healing to Happen along each Individual Journey in Our Own Way and at Our Own Pace….. NOT to:  heal, fix, convert, or solve any problems.
