Deities of the Occasion: Lugh and Ana
Offerings: libations; the remains of Balor
Omen: Thurisaz / Gebo / Ansuz
Return flow: bread, juice
Another lightly attended ritual during the summer doldrums. Much like the previous ritual, the shaded location at our temporary site kept it from getting horribly hot, and going inside for the potluck was a good plan.
Our Regional Druid, Amy Castner, visited us again, and had the honor of wielding the spear (an actual metal-tipped one this time) to strike Balor. Her battle cry of “eep” resounded across the land as his head exploded in a blossom of red petals!
My thanks to everyone who was there, and I hope I’ll see lots of people at our table at Ann Arbor Pagan Pride Day on September 17th: http://annarborpaganpride.org/
