It’s that time of year again! The wheel has turned and the first harvest is waiting to be gathered.
Well, actually, that was yesterday, but I was busy reaping and sowing, so I’m just getting around to writing about it now.
But there was a lot of harvest to be thankful for, so that is something!
In preparations for my own little festivities, I looked back at what it was I had sown this year. My intentions have been fairly consistent: I want to find the means, strength, and a potential partner to start a family and create a home.
At Ostara, I planted that seed in my heart and put the wish out to the universe.
On Beltane, I asked for the guidance and strength to embrace the transformations that I would have to go through in order to make my wish come true.
A month later, I was interviewing for a considerably better job and had turned down a handful of dates that were obviously not looking for anything long term. The job feels like the answer to the “means” part of my initial wish. The refusal to lower my standards just to “put myself out there” seems like personal growth.
The point being, I can see as well as feel the universe helping me to make my dream a reality.
Call it an answered prayer, or magick, or whatever is most comfortable for you, but I know that there is something spiritual going on behind the scenes, and it has helped me to find peace this summer.
So for Lughnasadh, I am celebrating the successes that I’ve had so far, and putting the intent out there to continue the positive progress. I’m hoping to find a healthy/stable/balanced relationship sometime soon.
May Lugh guide me so that my aim may be as true as Lugh’s spear when I set my sights on a partner.
And may your Lughnasadh (and the rest of the year, for that matter) be filled with an abundance of food, friends, and luck!
