Lammas

August 1st

The 8th station, Lammas in the celebration of the completed cycle, when the seed reached maturity, and the harvest begins to ripen.

 

A traditional Lammas story, The mystery of John Barleycorn tells of the physical reality and spirit of grain, as it is cut down, reborn, grows into old age and is cut down again, but turned into the sacred drink and the staff of life.

Lammas signifies regeneration at the place of original creation. A good time to start back at the beginning, or initiate a new beginning.
