Lúghnasadh 2011 Omens
Taken with Oghams by Skip.
The pre-ritual question asked was: What will this work bring?
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?
From the Ancestors, we drew Straif, the Blackthorn. There will be problems and healing and many lessons to be learned.
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.
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.
The after-ritual was Coll, the hazel. We have learned wisdom from this work.
