Blessed Beltane to my Southern Dwelling folk!
While I know many folks celebrate the seasonal moments according to the calendar dates (1st November), the actual Celestial moment is 8th November. So if you missed the 1st, there’s still time!
Beltane is the midpoint between the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. We’re moving closer to the sun, it’s high Spring, and it’s a celebration of early fruiting, warmth and light. We’re getting the first taste of the summer that’s to come (and for Eastern Australia – it’s looking to be a mighty wet one!).
If you’d like to celebrate Beltane…
Gather spring blooms and arrange them in your home. If you’re crafty, you may like to make a wreath.
Take a flower bath.
Take a moment with your journal and ask yourself…
What is growing in my life?
What do I want to focus my creative energy on?
How can I nurture these blossoms so they will bear fruit?
What will I need to be able to do so?
If you’d like to create a little ceremony, gather some words and trinkets that represent your intention, along with your collected blossoms and arrange yourself a small altar. Light a candle to honour your intention.
The fire generated at Beltane was believed to have special protective and activating powers…I choose to think the same ???.
