Theme: align with nature. Celebrate life
Anecdote Beltane is a celebration of the potency of the earth and the forces of nature. It's the cross quarter holiday between spring equinox and summer solstice and marks the beginning of the most active part of the year. All of life is bursting with fertility, sap is rising, birdsong fills the air and growth is everywhere. It is a time to express your self, but also to remember to stay grounded.
Ask yourself what you wish to give energy to? Where will you put your focus? What can you change for the better? What actions can you make that will help the spread of goodwill and love in the world? All to soon this highly fertile time will be spent, so make the most of its raw energy for initiating plans and visions. Everything you do now will bring you closer to your goals, as the expansive energy of the moment carries you along.
The intentions we give energy and passion to during this time will be coming into fullness in 7 months. What do you want to give your energy too? My Beltane intention for growth is more self LOVE and to move away from fear and towards trust. Trust in the resilience and abundance of life.
