May Day,stag, Goddess, Fairies

ah May Day, we are mid-way to summer here in the Northern Hemisphere. The Pleiades stars rise before sunrise on the morning horizon.  These 7 sisters are considered to be one  of the main constellations from which our ancestors came.  This is a very special NUMINOUS day. 

May Day, Beltane pagan fairy Tara Greene

This is one of the four Non- Cardinal days celebrated since almost time out of mind. These days are the movers and shakers of the wheel of the year.

Beltane begins the eve of, on April 30 the NIGHT BEFORE Beltane. Food left over from April 30 must not be eaten and should be left for the fairies as an offering.  

April 30 May eve and Beltane exist in a LIMINAL “no time” when the viels between the worlds are thinnest, just like Halloween, the counterbalance to this festival of conception.The worlds of reality {Saturn}  and magic {Jupiter}  intermingle.

FAIRIES

The Faeries are said to return from their winter rest, full of faery mischief and delight. 
It is said that the Queen of the Faeries rides out on her white horse. It is possible to see her as she appears in this world if you call her and seek her out. But be careful not to be tempted to go into the Fairy world.

This is a FERTILITY FIRE FESTIVAL CONCEPTION

Beltane bonfires are lit, and their flames, smoke and ashes have protective powers.  In ancient times people and their cattle would walk around the bonfire or between two bonfires, and sometimes leap over the flames or embers calling out their new intentions. All household fires would be doused and re-lit from Beltane bonfire.

MODERN PAGAN

Walk around candles with your pets. be careful of the fire. 

SEXUAL CELEBRATION OF LIFE

The day celebrates the The SACRED MARRIAGE, the Heiros Gamos day, Divine Sexual Union and fertility. 

It is the day of the MAY QUEEN and her consort, Cernunnos the horned God/PAN, making love in the fields to fertilize them. 

Cernunnos, or PAN, the half goat/human, the sexually potent stag of the forest is one of the main male Gods worshipped this day. He is portrayed with a beard and wild, shaggy hair and he wears a crown of antlers.

FLora, the May Queen is the Goddess of the flowers and the fertile beautiful earth Goddess, she is a young blushing maiden and she is a princess of the fae or fairies.  She was Guinevere in the Arthurian cycle. Offerings are made be wearing a floral crown and milk and honey. 

Young lads and lasses would go into the forest at night to make love with a masked stranger acting as the God and Goddess embodied. Children conceived this night would be considered especially blessed and of the Goddess, to have special psychic powers. . These children would be born around Feb 1st.  

The day of the dance around the May Pole with participants weaving the web of life as they interconnect their ribbons. The original May pole must have been a living tree, symbolizing the Tree of Life.

BELTANE RITUAL

Be outside for Beltane if you can. If not then  use lots of candles, or a table-top brazier. A small cast iron cauldron on a  tile can be used to. 

Weave ribbons together or bread or paper. 

Have fruits symbols of sweetness, like cherries, pomegranates, peaches or apples. 

Have lots of flowers too. make garlands. 

CELEBRATE> Make love, dance since, drum, be joyous.

If you are single  don’t worry or be sad. {and I am married but will be in Sedona on my own}. Call in your Beloved, the Sacred Marriage partner to be with you.  Do tantric breathing exercise to open your chakras. You can do fire-breathing to experience orgasms.  This is a celebration of the beauty of human sexuality and divine love. Imagine your beloved being with you. Put out the intention that you are united with your beloved, ask them to materialize in the next 9 months.

Leave offerings to the fairies.

I will be doing ceremony here in Sedona and sending you all Blessings. I went to a Beltane sound healing ritual here led by an amazing musicians who calls himself Three Trees. I have been to a few other of his sessions. It was amazing,  like a drug trip with no drugs. Like a Holotropic breathwork journey.  The intention was to bring in new energy, will, fire passion and to fertilize that. Also to send out the energy to the world. As each one of us does our own individual work we help to heal the world. Three Trees plays drums, didgeridoo, flutes, hang drums, sings and chants. He has a beautiful voice and seems to sing in ancient unknown languages. 

Three Trees played a didgeridoo that had last been played in the King’s Chamber in Egypt. The chamber room resonated to the key of B. which is the CROWN CHAKRA and I saw this in my vision and then he spoke about it.  Tone B and visualize your crown chakra opening.
