Lughnassadh

Lughnassadh is the time of turning from the growing season to the harvest season. The heat of the summer is at its most intense, and will begin to wane throughout the next few months.

For Stone Creed Grove, this is one of our major Celtic rites, a time to specifically honor two of the Celtic warrior deities, Morrigan and the holiday’s namesake Lugh. Prior to the ritual proper, those who choose to participate compete in a series of games designed to test warrior skill and ability, and from those games a worthy champion is chosen to carry the spear of Lugh (shown above in ritual) for the upcoming year. The rite focuses on ritually marrying the heroic Lugh to the sovereignty of the land as represented by Morrigan, patroness of heroes.
