Some Information About Who Lady Carla Beltane is…

In case you wondered why I choose the pagan name of Lady Carla Beltane it is because I am a Beltane/May Day baby. My parents, Carl (My given name for my dad and his dad) and Jeannine, 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 my heart family, this website, my apprentices and 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 warm months and raring to go usually in the cold months. Yes, I am backwards from a lot of people in this regard but, hey it works for me. 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. I do Handfasting’s, funeral, memorial services and Wiccaning. I really hate singling this out but even with as accepting as a lot of society has become with same sex marriages and civil unions most are not 100% there yet. With that said I enjoying doing Handfasting’s, Wiccanings, funerals, and memorial services for any couple no matter of color, race, sexual preference, or even non-pagan ceremonies

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, do different styles of card readings, numerology as well as other readings. (See the page “Readings by Lady Beltane” for mor information.)

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, modern Wicca and I sometimes even go to other pagan traditions including Buddhist.

I have raised five amazing children, am the grandmother of nine and counting wonderful people, 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 physical plane, her name is Cleopatra who is a Miniature Pinscher. 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 a German Shepard and Pit mix and Dreamer is a Chow, Wolf, Rottweiler, German Shepard, Pit mix that were Big Dawgs. All four of our fur kids get along great together even with the big size difference!

I will be marrying the love of my life and twin flame sometime in the spring or summer of 2023. This is who I refer to as Lord Beltane or Big Dawg. We have shared many lifetimes together but not always as mates. Keep checking back for the big announcement nd to see my medieval style dress.

I hope this has helped you to know the author of almost every post, the High Priestess of WoTC’s School of Witchcraft which includes Heart’s Spirit Online Coven 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 2015 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.

I took over WoTC from my dear sister and friend Lady Abyss when she choose to retire. Sadly she crossed the veil in June 2019 so when I mess up something on the website I no longer have my mentor available to help me out until she decides to answer a question I may ask. I sometimes wish there were clocks and calendars in the Summerlands 🌛🌝🌜

I ask that you point out mistakes I may make on here please. If you have any questions or comments you do not want to ask in a comment section on a post about me or WoTC’s website or school please email me at ladybeltane@witchesofthecraft.com. Heart’s Spirit Coven is a private coven right now for only students of WoTc’s School of Witchcraft. It might open to the public again some day but I would not hold your breath waiting for that to happen. I am extremally protective of all my apprentices no matter if the are at the novice or adept or priestess/priest level of study
