Lammas – A Time to Improve in Health, Wealth and Happiness
by Alison Yates

Lammas is normally celebrated on August 1st in the Northern Hemisphere and is one of the eight Sabbats celebrated by Wiccans, Pagans and Druids.

Also known as Lughnassadh, Lammas is commemorated and celebrated as a time of abundance, prosperity and success. It is believed that during the period of Lughnassadh it is possible to make manifest immense positive changes in health, wealth and happiness.

Casting Spells during Lammas for drawing healing, abundance, prosperity and material wealth are said to be most successful.

Lammas is also considered to be the perfect time for lovers to commit to one another. Handfasting Ceremonies are always popular at Lammas. Handfasting is where couples are gently bound by a cord around their wrists which is then knotted to symbolise their commitment to each other. The lovers commit themselves to each other for “a year and a day,” “a lifetime,” “for all of eternity” or “for as long as love shall last,” by ritually “tying the knot.”

With love in the air around Lammas day any Love Spells that are cast on and around this day are said to manifest swiftly and successfully.
