August 3rd, 2014
Deities of the Occasion: Lugh and Ana
Offerings: raffia (strengths for the spear)
Omen: Othala – Dagaz – Fehu
Return flow: sparkling fruit juice
Lovely weather, no clouds but plenty of shade and not at all hot by August standards.
The ritual started late because the ritual props arrived late, but everyone was in a socializing mood so it wasn’t too bad.
I won the boasting contest for “still being alive”, which I guess makes sense but I hate to be running the ritual *and* get selected like that. (Also see: last Beltaine.) I did manage to stand and pop the Balor balloon.
After the ritual, Gen did a short rite to Hermes where five of us made small herms out of terra cotta. As with most of my craft project attempts, mine is fairly rough and unadorned.
