Beltane / May Day

Occurring at the beginning of May, this time of celebration has been characterized by "May poles" and "May flowers," as evidence by the folk saying, "April showers bring to May flowers." Beltane is the flipside of Samhain in that Beltane ushers in the light half of the year much the same as Samhain opens the way for the dark half.  Both represent times when the veil between our wourld and the fairy realm is at its thinnest.

On Beltane, elves and fairies mix barley with dew gathered at midnight to make a very potent brew.  Traditionally people left gifts of food and drink out for the fairies, hoping  to win their favor, particularly in matters of the heart.  Beltane has long been a time when lovers would encounter one another in search of their compatibility.

Flowers and love are favorites of the fairies, giving Beltane its special quality.  When you give someone flowers or a plant, you are giving a fairy gift.  It is a piece of nature that represents the larger whole.  Love is a beautiful fairy flower that must be nurtured and cared for if it is to survive and grow to its fullest potential.  To settle for anything less is to deprive yourself of the breath of life. 

Happy Birthday to my Daughter, Ashley. A May 1st baby, now 22 years old...full of goodness and love for others... a true Fairy Spirit lives within!
