Beltane Blessings!

1 May
celticwheeloftheyear

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, BELTANE, Litha, Lughnassad, Mabon, Samhain.

The TAURUS Super New Moon on April 26 prepared the ground for BELTANE, the mid-Spring Celtic, Pagan festival on April 30 / May 1 (in the middle of TAURUS) that traditionally honours and celebrates fertility and fecundity of Nature!

 

 

The Green Man appears, 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, a few years ago. Precious Traditions in Community.
HAPPY BELTANE SEASON, dear Friends near and far!

A friend who is a local Victoria Morris dancer (check out this video from England: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V72qxbTu5ao ) sent out an invitation to the Morris Dance Beltane celebration at sunrise. Let’s see if I get myself out there at 5:30 am, or whether the Taurean bed comfort wins 🙂

Here’s one of their songs:

“Heel and toe, jolly ramble-o
We were up, long before the day-o
To welcome in the summer,
To welcome in the May-o
For summer is a comin’ in
And winter’s gone away-o”

 

Beltane comes with a few lovely astrological alignments this year:

The TAU SUN will sextile NEPTUNE in PI – The Spirit of Joy and Sweet Abandon, Life woven together in the ONE.

PI MOON throughout the day, sextiles VENUS, freshly (since Apr 29) in TAU, and squares MARS retro in SAG –  Dance and Be Merry!
