Blessed Lammas to all my friends near and far!!! May you enjoy this First Harvest. (And blessed Imbolc to those in the south!)
Astrological Lammas occurs on Aug 6 at 9:56 PM ET when the sun enters 15* Leo. Lammas, also called Lughnasadh, is the high point of summer. The Year King sacrifices himself in his prime, cut down and harvested to be born again. The Wheel turns!
At 15* Leo is the fixed star Dubhe (Arabic for "bear"), It is associated with psychic power, the ability to overcome enemies, courage, strength, and feminine power. So this is potent stuff! Dubhe has been thought of as the “Pivot of the Universe” and makes up the center of Ursa Major’s spine. So this Saturday night is potent time to work some serious magick! But work it with careful intention before riding this Bear, because it'll knock you on your ass stoopid hard otherwise. ;)
This Lammas is also potent because of the New Moon on Tuesday at 4:44pm ET. I talk a lot about this New Moon in my latest Nuit Report, but let me say that this the last "normal" lunation until we hit unpredictable and life-changing eclipse season. I'm excited for it...are you?? It'll be a wild ride, for sure, especially as Mars speeds up in Sagittarius and gets close to big beautiful and bold Antares, his rival. Antares is "the heart of the Scorpion", and Mars will meet him around the time of the first eclipse. Wowza...! We'll talk about that later. But for now there's some power to harnessed, so mindfully set those intentions and send them out to the Universe at the New Moon, in perfect Love and perfect Trust!
