April 30 its time to go romping in the woods. Its Walpurgis night, the night before May 1st, Beltane..
the VEIL BETWEEN THE WORLD’S ARE THINNEST just like at Halloween or Samhain, the energy is the same.
The Faery Queen goes out a riding in the woods tonight.
It’s a magical “no time” or TWILIGHT.
Dancing around the MAY POLE is an ancient fertility celebration of the maiden and the horned god who would meet in the dark, make love as strangers, embodying the Goddess and her young consort.
CARD OF THE DAY
This is the night when Maidens would go wander in the woods, as FLORA, the flowers, NATURE SPRUNG newly born,maiden has nothing to do with virginity, they are simply young, and eager to mate, as they are in touch with Nature’s rhythms, to give themselves to a stranger in the woods, the Green Man, also called PAN to the Greeks,the Horned Stag, called Cernunnos, in Latin, he is raw male phallic, sexual energy and virility, he is youthful,
Here is his ODE
CARD OF THE DAY for women CERNUNNOS the horny man
If a man had been created in
the horned God’s image
he would be free to be wild,
without being cruel,
angry without being violent,
sexual without being coercive
spiritual without being unsexed,
and truly able to love. – Starhawk, The Spiral Dance

So this night is considered at night SACRED SEXUAL LIASONS. The ancient had no morals on life’s necessities. Children conceived this night are considered to be magical and to belong to the realm of FAIRY as in The MISTS of AVALON. The maidens do not know the man they mate with in the sacred Marriage ritual.
Couples would also take vows to be in relationships for a year and a day, sort of test driving a relationship to see if they are compatible.
It is considered unlucky to marry in MAY as this month is dedicated to the wedding of the GOD and the GODDESS alone.
Another important custom is bathing in dew gathered before dawn on Beltane Morn, your beauty will flourish throughout the year. Sprinkled with the dew insures you of health and happiness. Or drinking from the well before dawn of Beltane is also good luck.
Left over Food from May 1st eve should be left out for the fairies.
This is the banishing of WINTER, the SUN grows stronger to ensure renewed life, food, abundance on the earth.
It’s an AIRY BREEZY FLIRTY GEMINI MOON May DAY
The Goddess is wearing two masks today as befits GEMINI. Curiosity is the perfume of the day.
MOON SQUARES NEPTUNE
early in wee hours bringing extra magic and heightened clairvoyant abilities.
TAURUS SUN QUINCUNX MARS RETRO in Libra
Stubborn bullishness does not jibe well with Mars in Libras deference. There will be horn locking.
GEMINI MOON TRINES MARS in LIBRA
this is airy, past lovers, reappear, finish off the old relationship superficiality. SEX is easy, childlike, bringing laughter.
Moon QUNINCUNX PLUTO
Gemini’s PETER PAN patter does not sit well with PLUTO;s heavy boundaries.
Moon sextile URANUS in ARIES-
you will see relationships in a new light. Freedom impulsiveness fuels this sexy MAY DAY>
GEMINI MOON SQUARE CHIRON
Once years ago I let a lover go off to another woman for a night. He was so gorgeous every woman wanted him. He said he loved me and I let him go to prove I could although it hurt like hell. Old wounds from crossing ones own limitations come up in order to be healed and let go.
I am in SEDONA and will be leading a MAY DAY Ceremony at BELL ROCK at 4:00 pm PDT.
And we are also doing a memorial for STUART WILDE who passed into the Aluna worlds one year ago this day. Yes I know Stuie is not gone, only 18 inches away. It is a formality. My friend has come all the way from ROME to Honor Stuart.
