Lughnasadh

To me, Lughnasadh is the funerary games Lugh inaugurated for his foster mother Tealte, who died clearing the plain of Mag Mell.

To honour Tealte, I make sure my working circle is clear of any debris before I do my ritual, whereas normally I don’t mind leaves and debris underfoot. 147 more words

Ash Key Pickle

Today I made Ash Key Pickle. I picked the ash keys from my tribal tree and will eat a bit of them at each festival, but especially at the Winter Solstice, which was the time when trees were traditionally wassailed. 18 more words

Midsummer

Yesterday we celebrated Midsummer. I did a very short ritual in the garden, as I wasn’t feeling very well.

We walked up to our tribal tree and talked to it, then went home and planted two rose bushes. 15 more words

Altars

I’ve always had a bit of a problem with altars. I think it’s because of my Protestant upbringing, which sees altars as being pagan.

I’ve had an altar for the past year for my ancestors and I talk to them every evening. 61 more words
