Upcoming Events :spiral_calendar:

~Neowise Comet~

@melewho has shared with us a very exciting cosmic happening going on right now- for the first time 7,000 years, the Neowise Comet is visible! :comet:

Were you able to see the comet? There is an ongoing discussion about Comet Hunting- share your experience and your pictures if you were lucky enough to snap a good image! :camera_flash::comet:

~Lughnasadh/Lammas~

For those who celebrate the 8 Sabbats of the Wheel of the Year, the next holiday: Lughnasadh/Lammas is almost here!

Lammas is the first of the 3 harvest holidays and is a great time to reap the rewards that you have sown. Less than two weeks away, this holiday will fall on Saturday, August 1st.

For a full guide to celebrating this Sabbat, including history and colors/plants/materials to decorate your altar, check out: How to Celebrate Lughnasadh/Lammas Alone. You can also learn more by checking out the Lughnasadh Celebration Ritual :confetti_ball:

Thank you, @TheTravelWitch, for doing these every Monday. :pray:

Yesterday was so busy for me, but I did get to put up my wall “altar” in time for the :new_moon:.

I’m hopeful to see the :comet: this week. On Friday I have an exam for a technical certificate. I need to pass this exam if I want more pay for my family. Although I have trained for a couple months I am nervous as the date gets closer. Please send positive energies my way, if you remember.
