Lammas is upon us and with this blog Hop, the wrangler, Joanna from Sun Goddess Tarot, asks us how we celebrate and what do we inspired by with the Queen of Pentacles.
Whether you've come from Arwen's blog before me, or dropped straight in just because you can, I bid you welcome and ask that you stay for a wee cuppa tea! Lammas (Or Lughnasadh) is the first day of the Harvests. The bountiful fruits of the summer need to be drawn in, stored, ready for the coming onslaught of the colder months. Hard to believe that it's nearly five months until the weather outside becomes frightful. But until then, we have cake, picnics and fun in the warm sun!
The last time I recall it being this hot, I was pregnant with my eldest and I craved the cooler nights of Lammas. But now, I've three children, all growing fast and today, we will probably celebrate with chocolate cake (Queen of Pentacles right there, Mrs Practicality!), fruit kebabs and burgers. All that including swimming lessons and today promises to be a very busy day.
How else might I channel my inner Queen of Pentacles? Let me answer that by sharing with you the following; I've got to pack clothes for five people, the camping gear for said five people and get us to the camp site. Then pitch the new tent and get down to having some fun with the kids! But first, it's time I started packing, so excuse me whilst I go and have fun with some bags, cases and work out how on earth I'm going to get all this gear where it needs to be!
Lets see what the lovely Hilary has to say about the Queen of Penctacles and Lammas.
