Preparing for a Midsummer Vigil

Here comes another action-packed weekend!  After my husband and I finish work, we’re going to Syracuse to initiate a couple new members into the Folk of Muin Mound Grove.  It will be a long night consisting of a vigil, rituals, crafts, pizza…  I need to remember to pack white tapers and some sticks from local trees.  Luckily I already have a nice collection drying inside.

On Saturday we’ll be having our Midsummer ritual in which we’ll honor the healer siblings Airmid and Miach.  I volunteered to make an “Airmid cloak” onto which we’ll be attaching herbs.  The whole thing will be given as an offering during our rite.  I’ll be sure to post a photo of the completed project before it goes into the fire.

Whatever you’re doing for Midsummer, may you enjoy the warmth of the sun, the smell of fresh herbs, and the coolness of the waters of life!
