Merry Lammas everyone! Lammas is a Wiccan/Pagan holiday aka Sabbat celebrating the turning of the wheel where the corn is reaped along with the wheat. It is opposite from Imbolc on the wheel. So now Lammas is here we still are not officially into Fall, but it’s not long. I often think of Osiris as a deity for this holiday. I think he is a really good deity to celebrate with when celebrating Lammas because of the fact that he is associated with death. Although Lammas is not necessarily a death-type Sabbat, it is drawing closer to Samhain. But those are my opinions. 🙂 Merry Lammas to you all!
Merry Summer Solstice (aka Litha or Midsummer)! Well, I can’t believe the Wheel of the Year has spun again. It’s the longest day of the year and I personally am happy that the Wheel is starting to spin towards the darker days of the year. As you can probably tell, I’m not a big fan of the lighter half of the year. However, we need it. I hope everyone has a great Summer Solstice! Blessings!
Merry Beltane everyone! Goodness I didn’t know that Beltane was coming up so fast! Hopefully, Summer Solstice won’t be like this. I hope this day will be good for everyone, both Wiccan and non-Wiccan. Blessings to you all. Unlike everyone, I’m having health issues, but I am still celebrating. I love all of you and I send you all prayers of good health and wellness. Blessings again!
Today is the Wiccan/Pagan Sabbat known as Imbolc. It is the first Sabbat of the new year. It also coincides with Groundhog day which is today of course. This day represents birth and awakening basically. The Earth has been asleep for a while, but now it’s starting to wake up. Soon the flowers and trees will be blooming. I’ve been sick lately and won’t be doing much today, but I will still be celebrating in my own way. So Merry Imbolc to all my Wiccan/Pagan and non Wiccan/Pagan friends.
Well I thought I would update you on the whole ‘Horus’ situation. I didn’t really get anymore communication from him, even though I did try to reach out to him. It could have been a one time thing. In many Egyptian myths Horus is the brother of Anubis, so I don’t know if he was just reaching out temporarily or what. I will keep him in mind, but I am not going to let this rule my thoughts for right now.
A few celebrations are coming up. The Chinese New Year will be coming up on the 28th of this month. I don’t often celebrate it, but it’s nice to know what year it is and my sign. This year is the year of the Rooster. I am a Dog in Chinese Astrology. 🙂 The Chinese do their astrology by year which is interesting.
Then our next celebration is Imbolc which is in 9 days if I’m not off. I look forward to it, but probably won’t be doing a lot for the holiday. I will be celebrating with a quiet meditation and thoughts of what the beginning of this year will bring.
So that is it for now. I will update soon. Have a good night!
I’m sorry I haven’t updated lately. Life has just kept me so busy. My family has been sick. My nephew had his adenoids removed and ear tubes put in on Tuesday. He is doing much better thank the Lord and Lady. I’m also studying to get my certification so I can go back to working. That’s one of my goals for this year is to get a job and to start on my own path. But it’s been busy and there just has not been a lot of time for updates. However, I am going to update some more. Imbolc is just around the corner and I have some thoughts for that. Plus I am reading a great book called Everyday Sun Magic by Dorothy Morrison. Can’t wait to share my thoughts on that. Well I will update soon everyone! Blessings!
Sorry I didn’t post my Yule divination yesterday. I’m sick unfortunately…uhhh! However, today I did a quick Past, Present, and Future Tarot divination. I just want to let you all know that I am not a professional Tarot reader. I do this for myself and still am learning divination. This is my interpretation so give me a break if you don’t think it is right. Like I said it is ‘my’ interpretation. Here is what I got:
- Past: The Magician
- Present: The Star
- Future: Six of Pentacles (or Coins)
The representations that The Magician most were in common with me and the past, I felt, were: realizing your potential, believing in yourself, and being in charge of your own destiny. I think this card really represents my past because I am and have been working real hard to study and get certified within the next few months and get a job.
The representations that The Star most were in common with me and the present were: the future looks bright, being unique, and living your bliss. Again, I think this refers to me trying to change myself and separate from the life I have been living and get back to the world I want.
The representations that the Six of Pentacles most were in common with me and the future were: earning wage, sharing wealth, and giving of yourself to others. The future is always hard to predict. I did pull this card and pentacles is associated with Earth. Earth is associated with money. I hope to see money and wealth in my future.
Like I said, I am not a professional. I just am sharing my thoughts with you all. I hope your Yule was great!
P.S. I got help from TarotWikipedia. Go there for some great information!
