In the Celtic year, Beltane is a month of beginnings and the promise of life to come. The crops were planted, the lambs and calves gamboled beside their dams. Handfastings were celebrated, the first since the old year ended at Samhain. And they celebrated the joining of the Young Lord and the Maiden in that ritual as old as time that promised the continuence of existence for all here below. What new things will you bring to life this year? What gardens do you plant? Partake of the joy and power of the season to empower your own spiritual life with the ecstasy of the Gods.
