Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ Beltane May Pole Candles
You will need:
Lots of pretty ribbons
Tall white or green pillar candle
Gold or brass “Craft Bells”
Candle holder (stand)
Cut lengths of ribbon around 18 inches each, in pretty Springtime colors.(pastels)
Tie a craft bell to each end of ribbon (a tooth pick helps this process) Tie ribbons starting
at ¾ way down the pillar candle, knot three times, don’t tie bows, you need lots of length
on the ribbons. Tie as many as you like snaking your way up the candle, but leave at least
¼ candle bare. Place in a candle stand that will raise the candle about 6 – 8 inches, so the
ribbons can “drape” Swirl the bundle of ribbons so they face East, ready to greet the dawn on
Beltane morn. Light candle and cheer the Spring time blessings to come. Keep a “safe” eye on
candle & ribbons.
This is a time when our lives can renew themselves. Spring energy can attract new openings, whether in love or in work or in simple pleasure. Open yourself to the energies around you. Honor the journey toward the future upon which we embark every day. The Goddess is within you as well as all around you. She is your witness as you move toward your destiny.
