Wheel of the Year – Beltane
Beltane takes place on May 1st. It is a Major Sabbat and a Celtic fire festival. Beltane marks the marriage of the Goddess and the God. In the Celtic calendar, it is the start of summer. This is a Sabbat of fire and fertility and also a time for handfasting (a Wiccan wedding).
The God is viewed as a grown man and the Goddess as the Maiden. Symbols of Beltane are the maypole, marriage, and bonfires. The veil between the worlds thins at this time just like Beltane’s cross-quarter, Samhain.
This is also a time when the Fae or Fairies are very active, and you stand a better chance of seeing during this time. Goddess and Gods to honor at Beltane are Isis and Osiris, Zeus and Hera, Odin and Frigga, or any other married deities. The colors of Beltane are reds and spring colors
