Lammas ritual recap

August 2, 2013

moved from Oaken Scrolls

I did my Lammas or First Harvest ritual this evening.  I honored Demeter, Kore and Kronos with Hermes as my gate Keeper, Gaia as both Earth Mother and Tree and Hestia at the hearth flame.  Overall I think it went fairly well.  It could always go smoother but no major issues that I can remember despite my occasional wandering of attention.  I’m in the midst of packing for a working weekend followed by a Pagan festival at which we are staffing, followed by 5 days with my sister in Denver.  So a million and one things to do…

The offerings for the Kindreds was hard cider.  The offerings for the deities of occasion were from our garden:  lettuce, kale, sage, thyme and wild rose.

I’ve been working on assembling my own pictures (from tarot decks and such) to go with Ian’s 9×9 oracle.  I love how they came out, smaller than I would like but that is a printing issue.  Any way I used them for the omens.  The reading seemed very positive to me.

  1. How were my offerings received?  God 3:  Gatekeeper – Hermes is my gatekeeper and is known for delivering messages.  While it could go either way, I felt positive.
  2. How shall the Kindreds respond?  Land 5:  South – Summer – I’m a bit hesitant on this one because it could go either way but I think it is a two layer answer.  Immediately, enjoy the moment, but there is still work to be done.
  3. What more would you have me learn/do?  Sea 9:  Elysium – Learn to relax!  Don’t stress about the little stuff so much!  Our love is yours no matter what.
