Well a BIG Thank You to everyone that attended our preparing for Beltane Wiccan Day!
You were all beautiful in the May head garlands that you made XX
Very industrious you were! xx
Fire was lit candles burned and we the Indigenous tribe of the British Isles prepared to celebrate Beltane, making our garlands connecting with the Green Man through our meditation, tying our ribbons to the trees for our wishes and prayers to be heard!
Beltane honours Life.
It represents the peak of Spring and the beginning of Summer.
Earth energies are at their strongest and most active.
All of life is bursting with potent fertility and at this point in the Wheel of the Year, the potential becomes conception.
On May Eve the sexuality of life and the earth is at its peak.
Abundant fertility, on all levels…..
The Maiden goddess has reached her fullness. She is the manifestation of growth and renewal.
Flora, the Goddess of Spring, the May Queen, the May Bride.
The Young Oak King, as the Green Man, falls in love with her and wins her hand.
Together the May Queen and the May King are symbols of the Sacred Marriage, the union of Earth and Sky, and this union has merrily been re-enacted by humans throughout the centuries.
For this is the night of the Greenwood Marriage.
It is about sexuality and sensuality, passion, vitality and joy.
And about conception, conceiving children, new ideas.
As Beltane is the Great Wedding of the Goddess and the God,
it is a popular time for pagan weddings or Handfastings.
