The wheel of the year has turned and Lammas, Lughnassadh or the first harvest will soon be upon us. While the sun-god is still with us, it is not the strong god of Litha but a gentle god looking after the workers as they prepare for the winter months ahead. An Australian Aboriginal Tribe of Wotjobaluk from Victoria the Sun Mother carries a torch across the skies and at the other end tends to her infant. In Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia Salute, the Queen of the Heaven and Earth drives her shining chariot amongst the field and the workers and blesses them.
