Just (barely) in time for Midsummer sabbat, which is tomorrow, I have put together one of my minimalist altars with yellow flowers, apricots, a pine-needle basket with a sun symbol, antlers to represent the God, and altar cloths in yellow.

I would LOVE To see some of your altars if you would like to post some photos. You'll need to have your photo already on a server and accessible through a URL. Here is the code to use in the forums (remember to delete the spaces I had to add to make the code visible):

The Lammas altar celebrates the first harvest of wheat. It is still high summer on August 1, but you have reached the gateway to autumn. Lammas is the midpoint between midsummer and fall equinox. You are standing on the threshold between the growing and the great reaping.

Who is John Barleycorn

Who is John Barleycorn? He is an aspect of the God whom we honor especially at the sabbat of Lammas, which is not just focused on wheat but also upon barley and all the alcohol beverages that can be made from it. Think of John Barleycorn as a personification of the cereal crops.

Ideas For Your Lammas Party

The sabbat of Lammas, which occurs on August 1, is the First Harvest of wheat, barley, and maize. Lammas sabbat feels like a county fair replete with feasting and good-natured competition. It can be a giddy event infused with the rowdy, high-spirited energy of the young trickster sun-god Lugh.

Mabon Gratitude Ritual

Mabon is the autumn equinox where the Wheel of the Year rests briefly in balance and day and night are of equal length. To help the Wheel roll ahead toward night, you recite a litany of gratitude. This solitary ritual can be adapted for a family or other small group.

I am so excited for the Summer Solstice to get here - and I know it'll be here quicker than I'm prepared for LOL!!

I'm planning a women's gathering on that day here in my home, and inviting ladies I have not seen in a long time! It just seems like the perfect time to do that.

We'll have our ceremony outside - I have a fire pit!!! I am so excited.
