Ostara, also known as Eastra.
The Celtic deity Lugh was seen as the supreme God of the land and known as the sun God of ending summer. The Mother Energy is shifting into Crown phase. Lammas or Lughnsadah is the first of the sacred harvest festivals. We are at the half way point from summer solstice to fall equinox. The days are getting shorter and the sun begins to spend less time above the horizon. We are now halfway to Autumn and the fruits of summer are
abundant as they give way to the grains of harvest. This is a time of gratitude and sacrifice. The Earth sacrifices as we begin to harvest Her fields and she drops fruit from her trees for nourishment and new seeds to be planted. A time to celebrate your accomplishments thus far! We soak up the last little bit of summer before going back inward and the darker days come. Enjoy this time of abundance and give thanks for the many blessings received.
