Web And Wheel Blog: May 1st, Beltane
Submitted by Linda Dobbins
Earth Spirituality celebrates the cycles of the season on The Wheel of the Year-birth, death, rebirth.
Beltane, May 1 st is a fire festival to honor the fertility of the seed, soil and harvest. Productivity is created
by the sun’s surging energy combined with the earth’s elements to sustain life and insure prosperity.
Passion, union, bloom and fruit deliver the promise of the seed. This earth sabbat is midway between
the sun’s most powerful eight week reign, March’s Spring Equinox and June’s Summer Solstice. Fertility
is the key component to survival on Mother Earth, eternally at risk. Love and protect Her always.
