Happy Beltane/ May Day

Beltane is a Fire Festival. The word ‘Beltane’ comes from the Celtic God ‘Bel’, meaning ‘the bright one’ and the Gaelic word ‘teine’ meaning fire. Together they make  ‘Goodly Fire’ and traditionally bonfires were lit to honour the Sun and encourage the support of Bel and the Sun’s light to nurture the emerging future harvest and protect the community.

Beltane honours Life. It represents the peak of Spring and the beginning of Summer. Earth energies are at their strongest and most active.

The Young Oak King,  (Jack-In-The-Green,  the Green Man), falls in love with Flora, the Goddess of Spring, (the May Queen, the May Bride)   and wins her hand. The union is consummated and the May Queen becomes pregnant. Together the May Queen and the May King are symbols of the sacred marriage and the union of Earth and Sky.

 

So make you flower crowns, bathe in the morning dew and have a dance around the Maypole.

Just A Bit Of Fun

Deep Down You Are Intuitive

You’re the type of person who understands other people and the world very well. You don’t let on to how much you know.
You can tell so much from someone’s facial expressions or tone of voice. And you always know when you’re being lied to.

You show the world exactly what you want to show. Besides being good at reading people, you also know how you’re being read.
You know when you’re being manipulated, and you know how to manipulate someone if you have to. You usually don’t resort to it though!

When She Speaks To Me

From the bark of a puppy dog
to the croak of a bullfrog
She knows the language of life

From the pussy cat’s “Meow”
to the Willow’s humble bow
She knows the signs of strife

From the Raven’s rowdy “Kaw!”
to the roses raised for all
She sings for the whole gallery

shroom forest

But when she speaks to me
the woods become one tree
and peace reigns in the valley

for UT, who loves her gladly
with a madness
