Hello everyone. I'm DarkShadows. I came across this forums site while searching for protection charms against dark matter. It seems interesting here so I decided to join to get questions answered and to learn more about the path I have chosen. Struggling to get used to the layout of this site though. Having trouble finding specific subjects and understanding posting methods... First time joining a forums site. Heheh

So happy for you Armemetia. 

I have no real favourite seasons.  There is something in each that appeals to me and something in each that doesn't;  and in each there seems to always be something for me to learn.  And I love that.

And who better to have her first celebration with? brilliant Arn sounds great to me.

Ashe: if you think my fire pit sounds cool, you should see Arn's outdoor fireplace..... now there's something to be jealous off.

I will be spending Lammas in Alaska with my youngest son !!!  We have been talking about doing something together.  A bale fire, food and simple ritual.  The next generation (my granddaughter) will also be there, her first pagan celebration, so thrilled it will be with Grandma !!!

 ;D Heinlein Pagan.... Love it! I might just adopt that. I haven't read any Heinlein for years although I do remember him having a quirky sense of humour.

I am fortunate in that I live in the country, so when the fields turn I do see that, and the trees when they colour. The city is a different kettle of fish though, I was born and brought up in the centre of Edinburgh, it was all about the calendar there; the grey tended to change to grey during seasonal changes....LoL.

I'll try and get a pic at some point of the fire pit, give you an idea what it is. It took a forktruck to load the thing into the car when I got it, and a forktruck to take it back out again. Even cut down it's extremely heavy.

My favorite sci fi author  commented (paraphrase)  "I don't know who's out there moving the universe around, I just hope they keep cranking".  Maybe you're a Heinlein pagan, Drac. I'm convinced Robert Heinlein was a closet pagan and he'd get a good laugh.

Here in the Midwest there's a general yellowing somehow in the environment around Lammas.  Lots of ripening corn, the prairie grass is browning out, the sky is less blue.  You can just feel a change coming.  I don't know if it's as obvious in Scotland.

I like your idea for a balefire!  I hope you enjoy.

What does this time mean to me? As a Pagan I view this time much the same as other Pagans I guess, and as you rightly point out, it is a time of transition, and preparation for the fading of the summer months. It is also a time for appreciation for what we have been given.

I have to admit, sometimes I find it hard to relate my side to others as an Agnostic Pagan. (I really need to find another word, Agnostic has such negative undertones....LoL)

When you break away the crust, basically I am a simple man, and I tend to like things that way. For my part, my celebration of these times will be the same; simple.

Not so long ago I pulled out a huge compressed air tank and I had it cut down in size to make a forge (it never got used as such) so it now gets used as my fire pit. With this it is easier to celebrate the fire festivals with a small fire in this pit. The appropriate foods and drink will be present and I will sit and meditate on the time past and the darker months that will soon follow.

As a Solitaire I will likely be doing this quietly by myself, but I may invite a couple of friends to join me but again the celebration itself will be private to me alone. If my finances can stretch I will make some appropriate foods, i.e. bread, cake, earth food. Also being Scotland, the invites to friends will be weather dependant ....LoL

Mabon itself will be mostly meditative.
