It is rumored that the name Lugh is derived from the Latin word LUX, meaning ‘light’.
Such a Sabbat is a celebration of not only the hidden light (ie. Morning Star and wisdom)

beauty of nature in its living aspect.

Lugh is represented as the leader of Tuatha De Danann which translates “People of the
Goddess Dana”. The people of Ireland record a great battle in their ancient texts between
Lugh and Tuatha De Danann against the Fomors and their leader, Balor. Lugh and his
people were victorious, thus banishing the Fomors further within the shadows in which
they dwelt. Approach the festival of Lughnasadh as though you were drawing down the
moon of Hecate, breed the thoughts and desires which shall come to pass. A willow
which drapes towards the earth will inherently guide you until a new sight is gained from
the shadows of your shape. You will undergo, as did Lugh, death and rebirth, therefore be
robed in white at first, then black. A reversal is essential for the understanding that all
things have two natures inherently. All actions and symbols must be trespassed to gain
the insight of mind-flight (the dream).
