As the wheel of time continues on, we welcome the celebration of “Lughnasadh”. To the ancients this was known as the first harvest. They honored the Irish-Gaelic “god of light” Lugh, who was very prominent in this region's mythology.
Bel, or Belenos, is the Celtic Sun god, “god of light”, and “the shining god”. His magic was associated with regeneration and healing. He was depicted on a horse drawn chariot, as he rode the Sun across the sky throwing bolts of lightning.
