april 29 - april 30
Earth is lush and green. Fertile womb of the Goddess is honoured and most active. She is warm and inviting, waiting for seeds to grow withing her. Male energy is most potent and instinctive.
In the middle of May and sensual smells of the blooming flowers life gets the full turn on. So we do!
By celebrating Beltane, the aboundance of fertile Goddess in union with the God we open ourselves to honour Life. On May Eve the sexuality of life and the earth is at its peak. 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 Jack- In- The- Green, as the Green Man, falls in love with her and wins her hand.
They are symbols of the Sacred Marriage (or Heiros Gamos), the union of Earth and Sky. Together they make 'Bright Fire', or 'Goodly Fire' and traditionally bonfires were lit to honour the Sun and encourage the support of the Sun's light to nurture the emerging future harvest and protect the community. People jumped the fire to purify, cleanse and to bring fertility. Couples jumped the fire together to pledge themselves to each other. So we do!
It is about sexuality and sensuality, passion, vitality and joy. And about conception. A brilliant moment in the Wheel of the Year to bring ideas, hopes and dreams into action. And have some fun..
Welcome and bring your joy and your dreams into this gathering. Please prepare yourself to create juicyness and magic. We need to decorate the whole place, inside, ourselves and the altar with the flowers of all kinds.
Be wild or colourful and greeny in your look. Medieval, elfisch, warriory. Goddesses : flower wreath on your head is a must. Also lots of colourful ribbons.
