2019 Lunar Lammas & Atna

 

Aloha Daughters of the Goddess!

We just gathered for a very powerful ritual where we called on the Mayan Ancestors and Xochiquetzal for healing.  Now it is time to gather for Lunar Lammas and give thanks to Atna for all the new things to come.  Please join us as we gather to celebrate our first harvest.

Lunar Lammas reminds us of all that we should be thankful for as the abundance of our first harvest begins.  All that we planted in the Spring has grown into fruition and is ready to be shared with each other.  It is a time for us to pay attention to what we asked for as it is now being birthed.  What we decide to do from here has an effect on the seen and unseen, as we are all connected.

Atna is the Mother and Corn Goddess of the Arikara Indians.  She was created from an ear of corn to help rescue the Arikaras from a cave where they were kept safe from the floods.  Mother Corn lead Her people home and taught them how to farm.

Atna and Her people are helped by many animals along their journey back to their homeland.  The Badger, the Mole, and the Long-nosed Mouse helped the Arikaras to dig their way out of the cave.  A Kingfisher, Owl, Loon, and a Dog also took part in keeping the people safe.  Throughout Her story, we are taught that all living beings are connected.  We must help one another to take care of our Earth.

Let us gather in community to help one another get over any obstacles that may be in your way.  Together we are more powerful.  Come to Atna’s altar for support from Her and your sisters to clear the overgrown path.

For the altar, please bring a yellow candle in a glass container, ears of corn or other food grown from your garden, cedar, sunflowers, calendulas, wheat, grain, corn dollies, and any of the animals associated with Atna.
