Bright Beltane Blessings!

Maypole

The wheel turns to Beltane, also known as Mayday, marking the beginning of Summer in the Pagan year. The dark half of the year has passed us, so it is time for revelry and rejoicing in the start of the season of light and warmth. The Earth that had lain dormant and waiting is starting to burst forth with life, and it's only the beginning. The Young God and Maiden Goddess come together and Wiccans celebrate their sacred union with feasting, music, and whenever possible (if we're lucky), re-enactment of it! So light the fire for purification and blessings, and erect the Maypole for a romp under the blazing sun, a sure way to promote fertility.

Beltaine, May 1

Beltaine, also called May Day by many Christians. This Sabbat celebrates the fertility and union of the Horned God and the Goddess. At this time, life is renewing itself. Birds and animals are mating. In the fields, newly planted seeds are beginning to grow. Great fires are lit honoring the fertility God Belenos. Some leap the fires to show the exuberance of the season.

A Maypole is erected and bright ribbons are hung on it. The Maypole, a phallic symbol, represents the masculine. The soft colored ribbons are the feminine. The union of the two symbolizes the union of the God and Goddess. This is the time to fertilize your dreams with action. It is legend that children conceived at Beltane were gifted by the Gods. These children became known as Merry-Be-Gots.

We are the Weavers,

We are the woven ones;

We are the dreamers,

We are the dream;

We are spiraling into the center,

The center of the wheel...
