July Buck Moon Lunar
July 1 at 4:00 pm to 11:30 pm
All are invited to Lunar Gatherings at Oak Spirit Sanctuary.
They are family friendly and FREE.
If you are new to OSS, attending a Lunar is great way to “dip your toe” into events at OSS and visit the land.
Lunars are generally scheduled during the waxing moon phase on a Saturday closest to the upcoming full moon during months OSS is not hosting a larger, ticketed event.
Lunars are a one-day event with an afternoon class from the OSS educational series: “A Year and A Day,” for training and information in basic Neo-Pagan topics.
Class is followed by a pot-luck dinner. Please bring a pot-luck dish suitable for about 10 to 12 people with an ingredients list. For hot dishes, crock pot meals or stove top use is ideal (no oven available for baking or heating.)
Ritual follows the Pot-Luck dinner
After the ritual, merriment and camaraderie around the evening bonfire complete the night’s observances. Bring your drums and acoustic instruments, and (adult) beverages of your choice.
About the Buck Moon July Lunar Ritual
The July Lunar is the Buck Moon, named as such because around this time of year a buck’s antlers are growing in; and so, we associate this Lunar with power, growth, strength, and abundance. For the ritual this Saturday, we will be focusing our communal and spiritual energy to charge a significant personal item with these qualities. Please, bring out your talismans, altar trinkets, a candle you love, a bottle of your favorite essential oil, a necklace you wear often, or any other type of significant object you treasure or interact with often to this rite. We are so excited to see you all!
4:00 Gates open (earlier arrival is fine too if you wish to hike around OSS)
4:30 – 5:30: Year and A Day class: “Connecting with Nature”
6:00: Community Potluck Meal
7:30: Ritual (bring your talisman or token for the ritual!)
Post-ritual: Community time around the fire
Note: OSS welcomes guest presenters. If you, as an individual or as part of a group, that is interested in presenting a community-oriented ritual at OSS, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
