It is one of eight solar Sabbats. This holiday incorporates traditions from the Gaelic Bealtaine, such as the bonfire, but it bears more relation to the Germanic May Day festival, both in its significance (focusing on fertility) and its rituals (such as May pole dancing). Some traditions celebrate this holiday on May 1 or May day, whiles others begin their celebration the eve before or April 30th.
Seamus and I made paper Beltane crowns last night. We'll be wearing them when we do our Beltane ritual today. We'll also be blessing and consecrating the new Ganesha statue and the new stones (lapis lazuli and jasper) we got at the Pagan shop the other day.
well, i was going to make a feast and have dh make a fire - but it looks like only the feast will happen tonight. its a very rainy day and all the wood we have left is not on the back patio but on the side of the house and is sopping wet. so feast it is and meditations later. i wanted to have a personal circle but... everytime i plan for that, about half the time i fall asleep before it happens. so we will see about that one
As I was at work all day, no there would have been no way of doing something special today. I stay late at present as I'm trying to get my classroom the way I want it and then I'm burnt out by the time I get home.
On Sunday I am having a zoo day with Daniel for the nature side of things and I um "celebrated" with Shaun at the weekend in the traditional Beltane manner.
I may do a little candle spell or something at the weekend, just towards a smooth labour and delivery.
