Lammas Abundance Ritual

Celebrate around August 1


Lammas is the time of the first harvest fruits, when the seeds planted at Ostara have grown and flourished. Now, they begin to repay the time and effort spent in cultivation. Fruits and grain are ripening, and though the full abundance of Mabon is yet to come, some are now ready to harvest. Grain turns to flour, and flour to bread. Thus in Middle English the Sabbat was named “Loaf-Mass,” or more loosely, “Celebration of Bread.” In Celtic lands it is called Lughnassadh (pronounced “luna-say”) in honor of Lugh, the solar grain god who gave his life that others might live, and is reborn each year through the new-ripened grain.

The Seasons of Ceremony rituals are designed for the solitary practitioner, assuming little or no previous magickal experience or training.

These rituals and spells are original rites. While crafting them along traditional lines and according to age-proven principles, symbols, and wording which other specific traditions may consider their own have been deliberately avoided. In using Seasons of Ceremony rituals, you will inherit none of the magickal “baggage,” for good or ill, which might come with a spell copied from some other source.

More advanced practitioners, and especially those already trained in a specific system of magick, may prefer to substitute their own symbols for the ones provided. Users may also wish to incorporate these spells into more elaborate rituals such as traditional Sabbat observations.
