So, yesterday I meditated again on this card. The companion book had said that the doorway opens on the sabbats, and whether it was the power of suggestion or something else, it turned out to be the case. When I entered the card, both the faery and the Greenman were all aflutter. Well, the faery more so, but the Greenman was pretty chirpy ;) And the door through to faery stood open, inviting me in...
This time my meditation was a reminder that the spirit of the sabbats isn't just about, well, spirit. I joined a rambunctious party, with no small amount of dancing, drinking, feasting, and telling of tall tales. As a mainly solitary witch, I don't really associate this with the sabbats, more with mundane parties that fall when they fall. And while I'm trying to meld the two a little more, with a summer solstice picnic planned yearly, most times I celebrate the sabbats alone with my DH.
It was lovely to have this experience, to feel the energy of a sabbat party. How about the rest of you: what was your Lughnasadh like?
