Lammas Reflections 2017

The summer of 2017 consisted of a hot weather in June, July and August were surprisingly cooler with a considerable amount of rain. The corn collected for the construction of dolls had a different texture from the previous year. Some of the local farmers harvested earlier due to extra moisture.

We had a busy summer work-wise and spent time contemplating our harvest resulting from the year’s projects.

Our group met during the evening of Lammas to constructed new dolls and Brigid crosses.

We then ventured out into the local fields of St Buryan to build a fire and burn our old corn dolls and crosses. It was a beautiful moonlit night with hardly a breeze. As each member of the group placed their corn in the fire we had time to reflect on the year that had passed, sacrifices we made and the lessons or rewards reaped as a result.

The flames and embers from a fire are hypnotic. This provides an ideal setting for scrying as many moving shapes are formed by the flames and smoke.

Conjuring and drawing energies from the fire and earth below, the moon and sky above,  the eyes of the elementals surrounding and observing along with the company of the ancient ones creates a powerful potency to draw upon and work with.

 

There was no better way to celebrate the harvest of our creativity throughout the spring and summer of 2017.
