Lúghnasadh 2011 Omens

Taken with Oghams by Skip.

The pre-ritual question asked was: What will this work bring?

Heather The pre-ritual omen was Úr, the Heather. Healing will be done.

The main question asked was: What will we need to work on for the next six weeks?

Blackthorn From the Ancestors, we drew Straif, the Blackthorn. There will be problems and healing and many lessons to be learned.

Fir From the Spirits of Nature, we drew Ailm, the Silver Fir. We must take the long view and not just look at the short term.

Sea Oak From the Shining Ones, we drew the modifier Brobh, the Sea and then Dair, the Oak. The sea is all around us and always influences us. The oak gives us the strength and wisdom of the Druids through all time.

Hazel The after-ritual was Coll, the hazel. We have learned wisdom from this work.
