So we are divining things up for your convenience.

 

We are going to have the Astronomy & Moon Phase Section, then the horoscopes, next will come the Tarot Cards, Rune Reading and whatever I can’t remember right now that goes into that category. We figured it would be easier on you and also more convenient. Hey, we aim to please!

Beltane History – Celebrating May Day by Patti Wigington

THE FIRES OF TARA

Beltane kicks off the merry month of May, and has a long history. This fire festival is celebrated on May 1 with bonfires, Maypoles, dancing, and lots of good old fashioned sexual energy. The Celts honored the fertility of the gods with gifts and offerings, sometimes including animal or human sacrifice. Cattle were driven through the smoke of the balefires, and blessed with health and fertility for the coming year.

In Ireland, the fires of Tara were the first ones lit every year at Beltane, and all other fires were lit with a flame from Tara.

ROMAN INFLUENCES

The Romans, always known for celebrating holidays in a big way, spent the first day of May paying tribute to their Lares, the gods of their household. They also celebrated the Floralia, or festival of flowers, which consisted of three days of unbridled sexual activity. Participants wore flowers in their hair (much like May Day celebrants later on), and there were plays, songs, and dances. At the end of the festivities, animals were set loose inside the Circus Maximus, and beans were scattered around to ensure fertility. The fire festival of Bona Dea was also celebrated on May 2nd.

Samhain Customs and Folklore by Patti Wigington

Interested in learning about some of the traditions behind the celebrations of the late harvest? Let’s look at some of the customs and folklore behind the Samhain season – learn why black cats are considered unlucky, how trick-or-treating became so popular and more!

There’s been a rumor going around for ages that Samhain is the name of a spooky Celtic death god. Totally not the case at all, but let’s take a look at where this misconception originated, and why it’s perpetuated by some groups of evangelical Christians.

Jack O’Lanterns

One of the most enduring symbols of Halloween is the jack o’lantern. Carved pumpkins are a mainstay of the Samhain season, and for some folks, the more elaborate the carved design, the better! School children are alternately delighted and terrified by them — but how did the whole idea of carving up a pumpkin evolve in the first place? Let’s talk about the legend of the Jack O’Lantern!

Samhain is a time rich in superstition and spooky stories. From divination to ghost tales, let’s look at some of the best-known superstitions of the Samhain season!
