Beltane Blessings!

30 Apr

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with the cardinal Turning Points of the Equinoxes and Solstices, and the fixed ‘Gates of Power’: BELTANE, Lammas, Samhain / Halloween, and Imbolc.

TAURUS prepares the ground for BELTANE, the mid-Spring Celtic, Pagan festival on April 30 / May 1 (in the middle of TAURUS).
It traditionally honours and celebrates fertility and fecundity of Nature!

Beltane is a Fire Festival. The word ‘Beltane’ originates from the Celtic God ‘Bel’, meaning ‘the bright one’ and the Gaelic word ‘teine’ meaning fire. Together they make ‘Bright Fire’, or ‘Goodly Fire’ and traditionally bonfires were lit to honour the Sun and encourage the support of Bel and the Sun’s light to nurture the emerging future harvest and protect the community.”
From the beautiful pagan page The Goddess & The Green Man out of Britain, with traditions and ceremonial recipes for the seasonal celebrations of the year.

 

Beltane is the time when the Green Man appears, Nature blossoms in full Spring, and when May Pole dances weave the masculine and feminine energies together.

Jumping over the Beltane (which means ‘bright fire’) bonfires kindles passion and fertility, while the Beltane ashes have protective powers.

 

Brings back sweet memories of May Pole dancing / weaving, and Beltane Fire jumping at the Corunum Yurt outside of Victoria, some years ago, and May Pole dances in my native Bavaria.
Precious Traditions in Community… based in Nature Spirituality.

Maybe a May Pole / circle dance opportunity arises again this year???

 

 

HAPPY BELTANE SEASON, dear Friends near and far!
For a fertile Spring, and a bountiful Summer!
