Beltane Activities

Beltane started on May 1st

Here are some activities that you can do to celebrate Beltane:

"Many people would rise at the first light of dawn to go outdoors and gather flowers and branches to decorate their homes.

Women traditionally would braid flowers into their hair.

Men and women alike would decorate their bodies.

Beltane marks the return of vitality, of passion.

Ancient Pagan traditions say that Beltane marks the emergence of the young God into manhood. Stirred by the energies at work in nature, he desires the Goddess. They fall in love, lie among the grasses and blossoms, and unite. The Goddess becomes pregnant of the God. To celebrate, a wedding feast, for the God and Goddess must be prepared. Let Them guide you! Breads and cereals are popular. Try oatmeal cakes or cookies sweetened with a dab of honey. Dairy foods are again appropriate...just make a lovely wedding feast and you are sure to enjoy yourself!

An early morning walk through a local park or forest could be fun for everyone.

Gather up some plants or flowers to display in your home. (I especially like this one because it is something that I can do myself)

Mom and daughter could braid their hair, and weave in a few tender blossoms.

I really like all of these ideas and quite ironically I did braid my hair and am wearing my hair like that right now!

Since that I know that we are now in the Beltane season there are things that I can do to help celebrate it. As I have mentioned many times before on this blog I have a backyard where I have my garden and I have already started planting.

I also have some roses that are growing on the side of my house and to celebrate Beltane I could bring a few cut roses inside and set them up as a centerpiece.

So what are you doing to celebrate the Beltane Sabbat?

Which Tarot Card Am I?

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

Using Flameless Candles In Spells????

Since I have chosen to take the path of hedgewitch I have wanted to use the most natural of ingredients and supplies in all of my spells.

So when I saw an online article about using flameless candles in spells I really "scoffed" at the notion! But I read the article and a lot of things that it said made a lot of sense to me especially when you want a candle to burn all night when you are doing a vigil. Also too, with a flameless candle you can place items around the candle and not worry about them burning.

So all in all, I have given up my "snobbery" about flameless candles and heck I have even decided to add them to my supplies as well!

Our Current Sabbat Is Beltane

The current sabbat is Beltane which started May 1, 2011

Beltane is a traditional May Day celebration of fertility, renewal, awakening & new beginnings that heralds the arrival of summer.

Though it's not quite summer yet we are on our way and this sabbat celebrates this time of year.

If you are a gardener like I am then this is definitely the time of year to start your garden. So far I have started growing some seeds indoors and have started to plant outside as well.
