Thursday - This Is Your Spell - Lammas Grain Sprouting Spell

At Lammas, witches cast spells for connectedness, career, health, and financial gain. Spells for abundance are completely appropriate now. As the sun is growing weaker, it is a good time to do grounding and sun meditations, then use the golden rays of the sun (gathered during meditation) in spellcasting.

* Grain Sprouting Spell *

By Pauline and Dan Campanelli; from "Ancient Ways: Reclaiming Pagan Traditions"

The Campanellis suggest sprouting some grains of wheat as part of your Lammas rituals. Once the wheat is sprouted, the book suggests taking half the sprouts and adding those to the loaf of bread that you bake for the Lammas ritual or feast. It suggests taking the remaining half of the sprouts, setting them in the sun so that they 'green-up'. Once the sprouts have gotten nice and green, you can then take them to a river or stream and place the sprouts into the water. Say these words while the sprouts gently float away:

"God of Grain,
Lord of Rebirth,
Return in the Spring,
Renew the Earth!"
