Good Thursday Morning to Everyone! We hope you are having a very beautiful Thursday. Rather chilly here, believe it has turned off Winter again. We start our broadcast with a little background on our next Sabbat, which is Beltane and it occurs on May 1st. In cast you are new to Witchcraft or just learning about us, Beltane is one of our Festivals that we celebrate throughout the year. Even though it doesn’t occur to May 1st, we like to start supplying our members with information they might need for that particular Sabbat.
Now let’s get that history and get this show on the road…..
A Brief Look at Beltane, May 1st
Beltane is the last of the three spring fertility festivals. It is the time when the sun is fully released from the bondage of winter and able to rule over summer and life once again. As summer begins, weather becomes warmer, and the plant world blossoms, an exuberant mood prevails. May is the month of sensuality and sexuality revitalized, the reawakening of the earth and Her Children. It is the time when we reawaken to the vivid colors, vibrant scents, tingling summer breezes, and the rapture of summer after a long dormant winter. It is a time of extraordinary expression of earth, animal, and person; a time of great enchantment and celebration.
Gathered by the lapping water’s shore
In the moonlight, a fire flickers high
God and goddess welcome you this eve
To find your lover and dance as one
Songs of Earth and Water beckon a rising crescendo
The tunes will bring fruition to dreams and greening fields
Tremble with the power rising
A two backed beast moves thru the night
The furrow is plowed, the seed is planted
The Earth sighs in contentment for love of a God
The eastern sky lightens with a promise…
Another Beltaine, another season of love.
