Beltane Sunset to Sunset. April 30th – May 1st

Beltane honours Life. It represents the peak of Spring and the beginning of Summer. Earth energies are at their strongest and most active. All of life is bursting with potent fertility and at this point in the Wheel of the Year, the potential becomes conception. On May Eve the sexuality of life and the earth is at its peak. Abundant fertility, on all levels, is the central theme. The Maiden goddess has reached her fullness. She is the manifestation of growth and renewal, Flora, the Goddess of Spring, the May Queen, the May Bride. The Young Oak King, as Jack-In-The-Green, as the Green Man, falls in love with her and wins her hand. The union is consummated and the May Queen becomes pregnant. Together the May Queen and the May King are symbols of the Sacred Marriage (or Heiros Gamos), the union of Earth and Sky, and this union has merrily been re-enacted by humans throughout the centuries. For this is the night of the Greenwood Marriage. It is about sexuality and sensuality, passion, vitality and joy. And about conception. A brilliant moment in the Wheel of the Year to bring ideas, hopes and dreams into action. And have some fun…..

Traditions of Beltane

Beltane is a Fire Festival. The word ‘Beltane’ originates from the Celtic God ‘Bel’, meaning ‘the bright one’ and the Gaelic word ‘teine’ meaning fire. Together they make ‘Bright Fire’, or ‘Goodly Fire’ and traditionally bonfires were lit to honour the Sun and encourage the support of Bel and the Sun’s light to nurture the emerging future harvest and protect the community. Bel had to be won over through human effort. Traditionally all fires in the community were put out and a special fire was kindled for Beltane. “This was the Tein-eigen, the need fire. People jumped the fire to purify, cleanse and to bring fertility. Couples jumped the fire together to pledge themselves to each other. Cattle and other animals were driven through the smoke as a protection from disease and to bring fertility. At the end of the evening, the villagers would take some of the Teineigen to start their fires anew.” (From Sacred Celebrations by Glennie Kindred) Green Man – Beltane

The Witches Guide to Saturdays

 

The Witches Guide to Saturdays

Saturday is a day filled with opportunities to clean up and clear out. So if you are wondering why Hecate is assigned to this day, take another look at what she symbolizes and the magick that is associated with her. That should answer the question.

Hecate was the oldest form of the Greek Triple Goddess, as she presided over heaven, the underworld, and earth. Crossroads where three roads met were especially sacred to Hecate, earning her the title of Hekate of the Three Ways. It’s interesting to note that even after the worship of other goddesses waned, ancient people still worshiped Hecate as the Queen of the Underworld and the Guardian of the Three-Way Crossroad. It was also believed that if you left her an offering of food there, she would grant you her favors. As Hecate Trivia, her triple images were often displayed at these crossroads, where she was petitioned on the full moon for positive magick and on the dark of the moon for cursing and dark magick.

While this last bit of information sounds a little ominous, keep in mind that Hecate/Hekate was known by many titles and is a shapeshifter. Her appearance could and did change often. As a dark moon goddess, her faces are many. To some she may appear as a old crone, hunched over a smoking cauldron and draped in a midnight cape. To others she may appear as a dark beautiful, mysterious, and mature woman wearing a shimmering crown. To some she may be perceived as a maiden priestess. She was called the “most lovely one,” the Great Goddess of Nature, and the Queen of the World of Spirits. This dark goddess knows her way around the earth and the underworld. All the powers of nature, life, and death are at her command.

Time Changes Are Happening Starting This Coming Weekend

Please bear with me as I figure out what countries change from either daylight savings time to standard and vise versa. This reflects the Current Planetary Positions. It is not as easy as you may think it is. For example the United States of America changing to Daylight Saving Time on Sunday, March 14 at 2:00 CDT but Australia does not switch from Daylight Savings Time to Standard time until Sunday, April 4 at 2:00 AEST. So this changes how many hours ahead Australia is of the U.S.A. I just get to pull my hair out twice a year but it grows back fast…LOL! I will try my best to get the times right and the abbreviation for the different time zone I do posts for daily.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this confusing time.

The Witches Spell-A-Day – A Spring Abundance Spell

 

A Spring Abundance Spell

Now that trees and shrubs are beginning to show signs of growth, it’s the perfect time to perform this ritual. You’ll need a pliable stem about two to three feet long from a tree or shrub such as a willow or forsythia. Being by weaving the steam into a small wreath. As you weave, say:

The winds of winter are a thing of the past
Spring, I welcome you at last.
Growth and abundance are draw to me.
Now I’m blessed with prosperity.

As you weave the stem, visualize growth and abundance being bound to you. When you’re done, hang the wreath on a branch to the tree or shrub from whic it came. Thank the tree or shrub. You’ve created some positive karma, which will increase the flow of abundance coming to you.

SPELL:

I ask the Universe, the Great Spirit, The Great Mother, and The Great Father that the person who has caused me (fill in blank examples – physical, mental, or emotional hurt or pain, purposely caused you to lose money or a job, etc) gets the equivalent in this lifetime.

I do not want them to suffer any more than I am or any less than I am.

I do not ask for anything that will completely harm the person causing them to lose everything they own, their family or friends. But let their true nature be seen by their family, friends, business associates, and stranger they meet in any setting.

I ask that they become more considerate of other people, animals, Mother Earth, and anything else they come in contact with in anyway.

THESE ARE MY WORDS! THIS MY WILL! SO MOTE IT BE! A’Ho (A’ho comes from the Kiowa word aho (“thank you”). It spread in usage by the Native American Church ceremonies, and from use at Pow Wows. It’s use these days it is used for “I agree”, “Amen”, or “Yes.” But for every nation except the Kiowa it is a loan word. For the definition of other Native American Tribes and Nations  For more information on the phase A’Ho please click here.)
