Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ May Eve Spell

 

Tonight’s twilight begins the Bright Fire, or the Celtic festival of Beltane. May’s warm Sun inspires in all thoughts of love and pairing. The longing for merging with our opposite is strong. On this eve of the return of summer’s pleasures, take a moment to honor your own integrity. Prepare a candlelit bath scented with lavender and rose. Scent your hair with rosemary oil and soothe your skin with lotions.

As you care for your body, revel in its gifts and natural beauty. See your-self through a lover’s eyes. Nurture and love yourself. For if you do not love yourself, how can you expect another to truly love you? Self-worth is the gift the Goddess brings to you this night.

Beltane Comments & Graphics
“May Day is related to the Celtic festival of Beltane and the Germanic festival of Walpurgis Night. May Day falls exactly half a year from November 1, another cross-quarter day which is also associated with various northern European pagan and neopagan festivals such as Samhain. May Day marks the end of the unfarmable winter half of the year in the Northern hemisphere, and it has traditionally been an occasion for popular and often raucous celebrations. As Europe became Christianized the pagan holidays lost their religious character and either changed into popular secular celebrations, as with May Day, or were merged with or replaced by new Christian holidays as with Christmas, Easter, Pentecost and All Saint’s Day. In the twentieth century, many neopagans began reconstructing the old traditions and celebrating May Day as a pagan religious festival again.”
