Celebrating Lamas: Wheel of the Year Part 6

Lamas - Vegetable Garden Harvest

 What's known as the ”Wheel of the Year” is a series of ancient traditions and celebrations that honor the cycles of the Earth as she shifts, through what we understand as the seasons.

What is Lamas

As the wheel turns to Lammas, also known as Lughnassadh in some traditions, all the work we've put in to nurture our fields and gardens is now rewarding us with the literal fruits of our labors.


Around the 1st of August, this is the beginning of harvest season, and even though these are often the hottest and driest days here in the North, there's a feeling of transition in the air.


What Does Lamas Mean to Me?

Just like its counterpoint at Imbolc, it's almost imperceptible at first, but nonetheless, there's a growing need to start gathering food and medicine to prepare for the long winter months ahead.

How Do I Celebrate Lamas?

Because of this, it's also one of the busiest points on the wheel for me, so my days are usually spent weeding, watering, and harvesting.


I pause in my labors, take a few moments to enjoy the warm Sun on my face, the cool Earth beneath my toes, and be grateful for all the beauty and blessings that grow around and within me.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi there! I'm Shannon Bueche, and this is my space to share what's on my mind, as concisely as my Virgo brain will allow. Not only do I 'spill the tea' on some common misconceptions, but I also like to drink it while I'm running down the rabbit holes of the hows and whys of what I do to harmonize with the greater connections of life.


Whether it's living, growing, and harvesting in tune with the cycles of the year, the struggles of being human in this age, or just the random musings of an everyday Earth Mother, you'll find it all here. I believe in keeping things authentic, but still practical.  So, while I may overshare details from time-to-time, I will always offer suggestions that make sense for living right now. 


So, grab a cup, sit a spell, and join me on this journey of living from the ground up.
