Celtic Tree Month – Hawthorn Tree May 13 – June 9

Hawthorn Tree – Spring

The Hawthorn is a prickly sort of plant with beautiful blossoms. Called Huath by the ancient Celts, and pronounced Hoh-uh, the Hawthorn month is a time of fertility, masculine energy, and fire. Coming right on the heels of Beltane, this month is a time when male potency is high — if you’re hoping to conceive a child, get busy this month! The Hawthorn has a raw, phallic sort of energy about it — use it for magic related to masculine power, business decisions, making professional connections. The Hawthorn is also associated with the realm of Faerie, and when the Hawthorn grows in tandem with an Ash and Oak, it is said to attract the Fae.

Hawthorn Tree – Summer

The Hawthorn is Known in Ireland as the fairy tree. It is often referred to as the gentle bush, lone bush or thorn, as it is disrespectful to mention the fairies by name.

As it is considered a fairy tree, it is believed to be extremely bad luck to cut one down, remove branches, or even hang things upon it (except at Beltane when this was customary) in case you disturb the little folk.

This belief has survived into modern times.

In 1999 work was interrupted on the main road from Limerick to Galway because a fairy tree stood in its path. The road had to be rerouted and construction was delayed for 10 years.

In 2009 there were numerous sightings of an ancient ghost thought to reappear in Tyrone after the felling of a fairy tree.

Few people will speak of the fairy tree out of a mixture of fear and respect and even fewer would ever remove or damage a hawthorn standing alone.

Couples fell in love under the hawthorn blossom

Contrary to these beliefs, in Britain, the hawthorn was associated with love and …

Who is Lady Beltane?

Lady Beltane on Samhain 2018

In case you wondered why I choose the pagan name of Lady Beltane it is because I am a Beltane/May Day baby. My parents welcomed me into this world for this lifetime on May 1, 1958, at 1:57 AM CDT. I am an Earth sign with the Sun signs zodiac, Taurus and Chinese zodiac, Dog, hence why I get very stubborn at times but am also a very loyal to close friends, family, this website and my readers.

I began as a kitchen and earth witch but evolved over time into the eclectic witch that I am today. I am still very entuned to Mother Earth and her seasons making me sluggish and a homebody during the colder months and wanting to be outdoors to garden, hike, or whatever the day bring my way in the warmer months. I was ordained as a pagan minister in 2015 to be able to sign marriage licenses anywhere in the 48 connecting states of the United States of America so I could marry one of my children in a Handfasting ceremony.

I became a Wiccan High Priestess when I was 21 years old and as a hereditary witch from both sides of my family, I started practicing witchcraft at a very early age with herbal medicines and developing many of the abilities I have. Some of those abilities are being a healer, talking to those that have crossed the veil into the Summerland’s, use photographs to clear aura and chakras, talk to animals both wild and domestic.

The traditions I bring into my own spiritual and magickal path are Native American, I am from the Choctaw Nation, Ancient Egyptian, German and Irish Celtic, some of the ancient Roman and Greek pantheons, and modern Wicca.

I have raised five amazing children, am the grandmother of nine wonderful children, and mother-in-law to 4 people I happily refer to as my children also. I am blessed with two magickal companions, one that helps me with my rituals and other magickal workings in our phiscal plane, her name is Cleopatra who is a Miniature Pinscher and the other travels with me to Otherworlds (the word used by Celtic traditions for other planes of existences) and during astral travel, her name is Starbabie she is a Chihuahua. I also have become mamma to other fur kids named Merlin and Dreamer that were Lord Beltane’s.

I will be marrying the love of my life and twin flame sometime in the fall or next spring. This is who I refer to as Lord Beltane. We have shared many lifetimes together but not always as mates.

White Wolf who I have introduced you to is my cosmic twin. Him and I work together in this lifetime as healing partners. As cosmic twins we have always had lifetimes together since first incarnating on Gaia/Mother Earth.

Lady Silver Sage and I have shared numerous lifetimes together either as blood or spirit sisters or as vert dear friends. She is my closet, dearest friend and spirit sister in this current lifetime.

I hope this has helped you to know the author of almost every post, the High Priestess of Heart’s Spirit Online Coven and School of Witchcraft on WOTC since April of 2019. Before taking over WOTC I had my own website Coven Life that Lady of the Abyss talked me into starting in 2016 where I had a School of Witchcraft and Heart’s Spirit Online Coven was born. Before that I had retired from leading face to face covens and mentoring young (not by age but by ability) witches in 1999 and became a solitary witch. Even as a solitary I would take on one or two novices a year to mentor first face to face and then via the internet.

A Thought for Today

Until we meet again dear sisters, brothers, and honored guests may you blessed be.

Moon Alert

After 2:40 AM EDT today, there are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The Moon is in Libra.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today the Moon is in a sign that is opposite from your sign, which means you have to cooperate with others. You have to be prepared to go more than halfway when dealing with them. This could trigger an interesting conversation with a sibling or neighbour. Stay open.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you might have to put your personal considerations second to those of someone else. Or perhaps, you have to cooperate with a certain situation, especially at work? Hey, you’re not being a martyr. This is simply how your day is rolling. No biggie.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Grab every chance to enjoy a social outing or an entertaining distraction because this will please you today. It could involve activities with children, the arts, the entertainment world or something to do with sports. It might also involve an old acquaintance.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This has been a popular time for you, which means at times, you have been you have been all things to all people. This can be exhausting! That’s why today might be your perfect chance to take a breather and hide at home. Find a private cubbyhole where you can replenish yourself.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today you have a strong need to express yourself. You want to be heard because you have something important to say. You don’t want to be caught up in superficial conversations that you feel are a waste of time. You want a real exchange with someone.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Because the Moon is sitting in your House of Earnings, you will emotionally identify with your possessions and your wealth today. This is why you might have a strong attachment for something. (“My precious!”) Some of you might be put in a position where you feel you have to defend yourself.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today and tomorrow the Moon is in your sign. This happens every month for about two days, and when it occurs, it gives you a slight advantage over all the other signs. However, it can also make you more emotional than usual. Be aware of this.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It’s quite alright if you want to withdraw and keep your feelings to yourself today, especially if you feel a tad insecure. (We’ve all been there.) Very likely, you don’t feel like socializing. Hey, relax. On Saturday, you’ll be out there flying your colours!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A heart-to-heart conversation with a female might be important today. This could be because you want to share some personal information or vice versa, someone wants to share their thoughts with you. This might be why you feel more protective of others. It’s all good.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It’s curious; both today and tomorrow, personal details about your private life might be a bit public. For some reason, people are talking about you. Are you aware of this? (If you are aware of this, you might take control of the narrative.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

In an effort to broaden your horizons today (or do something different), you might encounter someone who is unusual? Perhaps they have a different background from yours? This could be learning opportunity for you. Meanwhile this is a good day to make travel plans.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is an excellent day to catch up on old business from the past, especially items related to wills, estates, shared property, insurance issues, taxes, debt – all that sort of thing. It can make you cringe, but hey, it’s not going to go away by itself, is it?

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts about 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon rises in the east in mid-afternoon and is high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

Ui (sometimes interpreted as Pe) is Uillean, the Honeysuckle. Associated with the manifestation of will, the Honeysuckle starts as a small seed and creeps along, growing and spreading over time. Honeysuckle twists and spirals up and over its surroundings, its soft yellow flowers releasing a sweet scent. It is the flower of unspoken desire, hidden needs, secret wants, but it also represents our goals of finding our true Self.

From a medicinal standpoint, the honeysuckle can be useful as well. Dioscorides says,

“the ripe seed gathered and dried in theshadow and drunk for four days together, doth waste and consume away the hardness of the spleen and removeth wearisomeness, helpeth the shortness and difficulty of breathing, cureth the hicket (hiccough), etc. A syrup made of the flowers is good to be drunk against diseases of the lungs and spleen.”

Uillean Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: When this symbol appears, it means you need to allow yourself the freedom to pursue your desire. If you’ve got hopes or dreams that are unattained, now is your time to start considering whether they’re remain just dreams, or become reality. Denying yourself the chance to enjoy life is unfair.

Magical Aspects: Take the time to experience joy, but make sure you stay true to your values and beliefs as well. In many Wiccan traditions, the Charge of the Goddess is quoted as a reminder of this: All acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. Another aspect of this symbol is that sometimes, mysteries which seem to be hidden may not be as hard to delve into as you think–sometimes, you’ve just been sidetracked by distractions.

Name: Feng.

Keyphrase: Abundance.

Formed By The Trigrams: Thunder over Fire.


General: Make sure you provide for the future even though you are at the peak of success.

Love: Enjoy and celebrate the success of your relationship.

Business: Even though you are currently very successful make sure you make plans for the future.

Personal: This is a very successful time for you. Make the most of your success for lasting benefits.


Overview: Feng appears when everything is currently very successful. It is a remind that although it is fine to enjoy this period you should not make the mistake of thinking this period will last forever. Everything is transient. Success, like adversity is just as transient. Enjoy this period of life by all means but make plans to provide for the future when times may not be so beneficial. Celebration is appropriate but guard against making foolish decisions. Major success is all too rare to be taken lightly.

Every person has their guardian spirit animal. An energy that is assigned to them and that is responsible for a person’s well-being and good luck.

If we want to give more strength to the ritual, the Thursday that must be chosen should be in a period of the new moon shortly after midnight.


How to perform it:

Take the banknote and fold it into four parts.

Now place it in the copper container.

Create an ideal circle with the green candles around the copper container.

Now arrange the white candles in a circle around the green ones as well.

Then draw a circle with the coarse salt that encloses everything.

You will then have the copper container in the center surrounded by the green candles, which in turn are surrounded by the white candles, which in turn are enclosed by the circle of salt.

This composition is a powerful catalyst for positive energies and is also used in other propitiatory rites.

Now, light the candles, starting with the green ones, and moving clockwise.

While lighting the candles, repeat as if it were a chant the following formula several times and always in a multiple number of three (three, six, nine…).

Leave a certain amount of time between the lighting of one candle and the other.

“Sun, cover me with gold,
dress me in silver, Moon,
give me riches, great Jupiter”

Let the candles burn out completely. Then take the copper container and put it in a safe place away from prying eyes (obviously you have to leave the banknote inside).

It can be used again to repeat the ritual as often as you need it, always in the new moon period, always on Thursday.

Young Stars of NGC 346

Image Credit: NASAESA – acknowledgement: Antonella Nota (ESA/STScIet al.,

Explanation: The massive stars of NGC 346 are short lived, but very energetic. The star cluster is embedded in the largest star forming region in the Small Magellanic Cloud, some 210,000 light-years distant. Their winds and radiation sweep out an interstellar cavern in the gas and dust cloud about 200 light-years across, triggering star formation and sculpting the region’s dense inner edge. Cataloged as N66, the star forming region also appears to contain a large population of infant stars. A mere 3 to 5 million years old and not yet burning hydrogen in their cores, the infant stars are strewn about the embedded star cluster. In this false-color Hubble Space Telescope image, visible and near-infrared light are seen as blue and green, while light from atomic hydrogen emission is red.
