Yes, solo this time. The Druidic Seed Group i usually go to didn't celebrate because of the Group's leader went on holiday(he, we're just like normal people :lol: )

And in a few moments i'm going to a large festival held in the name of Lugh.
Last year we had about 23.000 people in two days.........(look here for pictures)

I'll post pictures when i get back(and sober, there's a lot of Mead :P :P )

I celebrated by buying good-for-me groceries, and ceremonially eating an almond butter and honey sandwich on wholewheat/rye/grain bread.

Nothing much else, just saying thanks to Great Mystery and his form of the God and Goddess in their cycles, in this time of abundance and harvest.

Forgot all about it until suppertime... so I made cornbread. That's about it! Oh, and I did make a tablecloth for my altar, but I was doing that anyway.

From Ragnar. I have sent you a mail Katsu.

Didn't celebrate it. I don't usually celebrate the cross-quarters.

However I do have it marked on my calender and even if I don't celebrate I made it a point to try to thank the Divine on those days.

Lets see well, I did take advantage of the energy of the first harvest. I wrote up both a ritual for the Lugh and the Full moon and tied them both in together. The days before the Full moon I did the Lugh ritual and then on the full moon I did the ritual I wrote for that one.
I think the energy was more potent because of this daily build-up of energy. The only tools I used was a yellow candle and my own chanting/scripted ritual.

I've always been able to feel this energy more so than any other time of the year....not sure why.

Sometimes different types of energy resonates better with certain people than other types of energy. Its kind of strange how that works.
I wish there was a way to conclusively find out why one resonates with certain types of energy other than other types. :idea:

Me too, i find that I also feel differnt energies at different times of year (well duh).

In the winter I always feel very grounded, the fall is a calming time for me and in the spring and summer I feel completely hyper, maybe there is just a natural way of things that we are all unconciously trying to tap into.

sorry...I guess for most people this is obvious #-o For me it is a bit of an insight.

Must say, I am the other way around. I really come awake in autumn and winter, I allways get a "downer" in Spring, and summer, I hate. All that un neccessary sun stuff, horrible. :-?
