A Blessed and Joyous Beltane Wise Ones!
The new moon in Taurus and solar eclipse are bringing their energies to us from above today and tomorrow we celebrate Beltane, the fertility of the earth.
Here in the Northern Hemisphere we are halfway between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice.
The Earth is alive with growth and we celebrate this abundance.
We sluff off the remnants of winter with purifying fires and baths of morning dew.
We don flower crowns to honor the divine feminine and we drive poles into the ground and dance about them to celebrate the coming together of masculine and feminine energies and the blossoming this union creates.
This festival is full of symbolism and tradition.
There are many ways you might celebrate Beltane, from the weaving of ribbons into spells, to dancing barefoot on the budding earth.
From the honoring of the Fae Folk, to the baking of bannocks and oat cakes. Or perhaps you are attending or participating in a handfasting or Maypole dance.
