Beltane 2019 Interactive Ritual
May 1 is Beltane in the Northern Hemisphere and on that day we honor nature’s oldest love story. Beltane means bright fire, and in earth-based traditions, it represents the symbolic marriage of the God and Goddess and their eternal embrace. According to ancient lore, the two have been separated all winter long, and their glorious reunion on Beltane is celebrated with food, drink, and multi-colored maypoles to symbolize female energies wrapping themselves around the male form. The entire world comes alive with new life and bright colors to celebrate this union of the Divine Feminine with the Divine Masculine. This holiday is a celebration that honors the divine balance in the union of masculine and feminine. Having reached maturity after their long, wintry separation, Lord and Lady can now come together as one and give birth to new life, ideas, passions, projects, and wonderful expressions of unbridled sensuality. Join me for a LIVE and interactive ceremony you can participate in as we celebrate the power of Spring and empower our lives in releasing our intentions together. TO PARTICIPATE from your home in the ceremony you will need some incense for "smudging" and a small candle (preferably a tea that will burn out quickly) and a fire safe container (cauldron or ashtray will suffice), a small piece of paper and something to write with.
It is probably a good idea to contemplate what are some things you'd like to bring into your life and see grow over the coming month's. (Remember the Rede...Harm none, do what you will.) During the LIVE ceremony we will:
- Call the elements
-Invoke the Gods
-Bring fertility to new blessings. Make sure you won't be disturbed and allow time for you focus and concentrate/meditate. Happy Beltane
