Lughnasadh 2022 Celebration's

Lughnasadh Invocation

The King and Queen are wed at last

While summer’s kiss turns fields and grass

To harvest gold, and garden gifts

Find sacrifice on earthen lips

Witches gather hand in hand

Power raised along the band

Vortex spiral in it’s quest

Force to form I manifest!

Debts repaid and games of sport

Weather magick-Thor’s retort

Blessing babies, baking bread

Stocking up for winter’s stead

Witches gather hand in hand

Power raised along the band

Vortex spiral in it’s quest

Force to form I manifest!

Bonfires, dancing, circle round

Fruits and produce from the ground

Offer up a least of praise

While shadows lengthen in the maze

Witches gather hand in hand

Power raised along the band

Vortex spiral in it’s quest

Force to form I manifest!

August sun turns all to bronze

Golden children singing songs

Fireflies flitter in the dusk

Touching all with fairy dust

Witches gather hand in hand

Power raised along the band

Vortex, spiral in it’s quest

Force to form I manifest!

Dark Lord melts into the night

Taking with him summer’s light

Merging wishes, law, and might

Removing evil from our sight

Witches gather hand in hand

Power raised along the band

Vortex spiral in it’s quest

Force to form I manifest!

No, it is in the Book of Shadows that I purchased many years ago. There is no way of knowing who wrote it. I think it’s lovely to, so I had to share!

That’s fantastic! I’m still struggling with the necessity of rhyme but this one really appeals to me. Thank you for posting!

I can’t take the credit for writing it. I don’t have that kind of talent. Lol!

Love this! I think my celebration might be low key! August 1st is the first day of school here and this teacher will be first day of school exhausted! We may actually celebrate on Sunday. I know I want to bake some bread. I may do a beef stew for dinner too.

Next weekend I’m going to take a trip to the Houston Farmer’s Market. It’s an 18 acre farmer’s market and I’ve always wanted to go. I think that will be a great way to celebrate Lughnasadh.

That book is giving me book envy.

Hi @Ostara! That’s an amazing invocation! I will write it down in my Book of Shadows that I made. Today I made these 2 corn dollies from the husks of the very first harvest in my place. I dressed them with fabric from my parents’ old clothes in the Indian style.


Wish you all a very happy Lughnasadh in advance!
