Wheel of the Year


We're celebrating Beltane by dancing the Maypole Dance!
Beltane

May 1

Beltane, (BEL-teyn, -tin), also known as Bealtinne (Caledonii), Festival of Tana (Strega), Walpurgisnacht (Teutonic), Roodmas (ROOD-mass) and May Day, begins sundown on April 30st and continues to sundown May 1st. Astrologically speaking, Beltane begins when the Sun enters 15 degrees Taurus which is in fact closer to May 5th. Some traditions celebrate on this date, calling it “Old Beltane”. Beltane marks the end of the planting season, and the beginning of pastoral summer. Beltane is celebrated by modern pagans as one of four fire festivals representing the waxing, light half of the Year.

The great central bonfire known as the “Balefire” was an integral part of this holiday. Often complex patterns were formed with the layout of the bonfire, special magickal symbols being used to help bind the magick to the land and ensure that the Years harvest would be a good one. The Balefire was also used to purify and consecrate. One custom involved herding all cattle in a procession through the smoke of the balefire to purify and bless them with fertility and health for the coming season. Newlyweds would jump over the balefire for luck and to consecrate and seal their vows. The next day, coals were taken from the remains of the fire and carried home to light hearth fires, thereby bringing the magick of the fire to bless their homes.

Another tradition of Beltane, one that has survived to this day, is the Maypole Dance. Believed to be originally a fertility rite intended to bless the land with a prosperous growing season, the dance involved the erection of a long wooden pole with varicolored ribbons tied to the top. Celebrants would then dance around the pole with ribbon in hand, winding and weaving the ribbons together. The resulting weaving was kept as a talisman until Samhain, at which time it was ritually burned.

Beltane was also a time to celebrate love, both physical and marital. Though full year and a day handfastings were quite common at this time of the year, marital vows were relaxed during Beltane. In addition to traditional handfastings, one night “Greenwood Marriages” were common during which couples would sneak off during the feasting, dancing, and singing of the festival to spend the night together under the stars and trees. Then next day, they would gather the dew that had formed during the night. It was believed that the dew of the first morning of May was magickal, and anyone who bathed their face in it would be blessed with beauty for the rest of the year.

The memory of winter has faded, and the air is warm and thick with pollen. Birds of the sky and beasts of the land begin the ecstatic mating ballet. The now mature God and Goddess consummate their sacred marriage, taking love and comfort with each other and in doing so bringing love and fertility to the world.

WHat's Your Rising Sign? What’s Your Rising Sign? A New Introduction to Astrology

Most everyone knows their sun sign. But did you know you have many signs? Three are essential: moon, sun (of course), and ascendant (your rising sign). And it's this ascendant that people first notice about you, before they see your usually-more-subtle sun sign.

When astrologers read a birth chart, they regularly begin by noting these three distinctive elements. So important are they, that one could read a chart using only these three points, and it's this triad that our class will explore.

In the first half of this class, we will use the rising sign as doorway to your astrological houses, where we'll have a chat with sun and moon. I say "houses" because each element in astrology actually has a "house," a place where it resides, and it has personality (the signs), and it has family (aspects). House, sign and aspect-the three tools (another triad!) of chart interpretation.

In the second half of class, we'll practice interpretation of these elements in your own chart.

If you have a birth chart (also called a natal chart), please bring it. If you do not have a chart, Bill will draw one for you, if you get the info to Diana at least two days before class. You'll need to tell her three things (yet another three&45;some!): date of birth, birth time, and birthplace, such as city or nearest town. If you don't know your birth time (such as from a birth certificate), a closest guess will do, for the purposes of this class.

See you there

Shamanic Goddess Circle

With Air Magic we address the most subtle, and powerful, natural Element. Symbolic of Spring, Air blows in changes from the lightest, highest plane of energy that can bring about deep shift all through our 3D world.

How is the Air Element balanced in your life?

Out of balance: Spacey. Often late. Headaches. Shallow breaths. Shaky manifestation.

In balance: Confident. Deep breathing. Balanced daily activities. Manifestor!

We'll create our own Shamanic Ceremony you can take home and continue on your own. Bring a symbol of the Air to use for your home altar:

•Feather

•Dried flower/herbs

•Scent carrier (incense, oil)

•Sound maker (bell, rattle, flute)

Together we’ll turn our scattered thought tornadoes into gently effective breezes! Call in your magic, change your life-weather and come into right relationship with the Air Magic! Inspired by my own experiences, teachers and wise advice from The Goddess.
