Today is Lammas/Lughnasadh (pronounced loo-na-sa), the first harvest and a day honoring Celtic Sun god Lugh. It's a time to be grateful for what you have and for your opportunities. In modern times, our harvests are often figurative rather than literal. Take some time to list all your accomplishments over the past year, and list your upcoming opportunities. Place the list in a cauldron or large bowl. Fill it with fresh fruit and vegetables and a loaf of bread. Then say:
"With the first harvest Lugh has filled my cauldron.
I offer thanks for the year's good fortune
My thanks for the harvest, the future to brighten,
I ask for protection for my crops still to ripen."
Use the bounty of fruit, vegetables, and bread from the cauldron in your meals all week.
