Wheel of the Year


Lammas Grain Ripening in the Sun
Lammas

August 1


Lammas,(LA-mas) or “Loaf Mass” (Anglo-Saxon), also known as Lugnasadh (Irish Celt), L¨nasdal (Scottish), Calan Aust (Welsh), Lugunassatis (Gaul), and Feast of First Fruits, is celebrated on or around August 1st. Lammas celebrates the first of the major harvest festivals of the year, that of grain or "Corn".

In England during the medieval era tenants were required to present to their landlord the first of the freshly harvested wheat crop. The first corn from this harvest was baked into a ceremonial loaf and given as an offering to the Gods.The last sheaf of corn was not consumed but kept back and made into a effigy to represent the spirit of the corn and the harvest, sometimes called John Barlycorn. The effigy was placed at the center of the feasting table and then next year when the fields are being prepared for the sowing of new crops, it was ploughed back into the soil so that the spirit of the sun and the corn did not die.

Among pagans, (especially those with Celtic roots), the most common name for this holiday is Lughnasadh, (loo-na-sa), in honor not of the God Lugh, but that of his foster mother Tailtiu. Tailtiu died while clearing the plain of Breg in County Meath for agriculture. Lugh instituted funerary games called ┴enach Tailteann in her honour, which continued to be celebrated as late as the 18th century.

The daylight is now visibly waning as the mature Lord of the Forest and Field becomes more the Wise Sage and his power awareness begins to pass from without to within. The Pregnant Mother Goddess rules beside Him as they both bask in the bounty of Nature in this, the beginning of the harvest season.

Lenormand Class

What is Lenormand?

Lenormand is a French form of cartomancy started in the 18th Century by Marie Anne Lenormand. She was consulted by Empress Josephine and Robespierre during the French Revolution. The traditional system uses just 36 cards, with very specific meaning. Readings are done by using all of the cards, and reading cards in pairs (or more). A Lenormand reading tends to be more objective and blunt than tarot.

What is the class about?

This class is meant to whet the appetite to try a new-to-us form of divination. We will get a quick overview of all the cards, and their history. There will a hand-out with keywords for each one of the cards. We?ll cover the spreads, and basic ways to read the cards. At the end of the class students will be able to start using a Lenormand deck, and give basic readings.

In depth

Students will learn the history of Lenormand, briefly. We?ll discuss how they?re different from tarot, and oracle decks. When is the best time to use Lenormand versus a traditional Tarot reading. How to do a Lenormand reading, the traditional method (le grand jeu), and some of the modern methods. We?ll suggest some excellent resources for further study.

Who is Fred West?

Fred has been a card reader for over 30 years. He got into Tarot accidentally; the cards literally fell into his lap. Having been given the gift of Tarot, he set about learning and studying about them, and found he had a powerful gift as an oracle. He has started to incorporate Lenormand, a french card reading system, into his practice. Lenormand is excellent for when you have a specific question that you would like insight on. He has read all over the country, and has been on several radio shows. He has worked for conventions, events, private clients, and has even read for celebrities.

His goal is to help folks see their lives with new and fresh perspectives, and offer some "next steps" to tackle life. The cards are powerful tools that allow for powerful dialogue, and he wants to share that with all his clients. Come in and see what the Universe has to say to you!!

Protection Spell Bottle Workshop

What is a spell bottle? A spell bottle is a bottle into which a magical spell has been cast in the form of physical items used to ensure that the spell results in the desired outcome. Join us for this very useful class to learn a powerful tool for creating the change you want in your life!

Spell bottles, also known as “Witches Bottles”, have been in use in England and the United States since at least the 1600’s. Many types of bottle spells are used in folk magic traditions from around the world. Almost every culture that uses bottles (or gourds, or animal horns) as containers also has developed ways to use those containers to hold works of magical spell craft.

Diana Disimone has studied Witchcraft, Wicca, and Goddess Spirituality since she was a young Diana. She is an eclectic solitary Witch who practices a Joyous Ecstatic Tradition heavily influenced by Wicca and Goddess Spirituality.

As an active member of the San Diego Metaphysical Community and owner/ operator of Tree of Life Metaphysical Books and Gifts in San Diego Diana teaches many classes on the Craft, including her popular “Crafts of the Craft” series which include Love Magick Workshops, Candle Magick Workshops, Magickal Incense Workshops, and Magickal Amulet Workshops, just to name a few.
