Beltane fire sex pagan Celebration

Beltane  May 1st, is a traditional Fertility and Sacred Marriage Festival of the Sun to the Earth. It means “fire of Bel” or “bright fire” – the “bale-fire”. (English – bale; Anglo-Saxon bael; is the known as the bright and shinning one, a Celtic Sun God. Beli is the father, protector, and the husband of the Mother Goddess. The Bel fire is a sacred fire with healing and purifying powers. The ashes of the Beltane fires were smudged on faces and scattered in the fields. Household fires would be extinguished and re-lit with fresh fire from the Bel Fires.

THE MAY POLE/Phallic symbol

Dancing around the MAY POLE is a very ancient fertility celebration of the maiden Goddess and the horned god who would meet in the dark, make love as strangers, a young girl embodying the Goddess Divine and her young consort. He is Cernunos, PAN to the Greeks, the young virile, sexual, phallic God of fertility, the stag. Guys still have stag parties.  We are celebrating the Positive Goddess worshipping Strong hunter the Green Man. The Catholic Church made him into the Horny Devil. In the Tarot he is #15 the Devil .

The ancient had no morals on life’s necessities. Children conceived this night were considered magical and to belong to the realm of the FAIRY or Fey.  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.

PLEIADES

Beltane is marked in the Heavens as the rising of the Pleiades star cluster just before sunrise on the morning horizon, winter (Samhain/Halloween) begins when the Pleiades rises at sunset. The Pleiades is a cluster of seven closely placed stars, the seven sisters, in the constellation of Taurus, they can be easily seen with the naked eye. The Pleiades were very important to many ancient cultures worldwide. Some Native American tribes say that their Ancestors were Star Beings who came from the Pleiades. Many psychics channeled  the Pleiadians. I do too.

THE WHEEL OF TIME and our participation

The Ancients participated in Time’s unfolding, they believed that the Wheel of Time would not turn without human intervention. It is vitally important for us to reconnect and to honour these Ancient Nature Festivals, as we are so disconnected from the earth and the natural world. The modern world and all of its hi-tec tools disconnects us from Nature directly.  We may feel more like orphans than children of the earth. Not so long ago when we lived off the land, grew our own and harvested our own food we needed to be directly in touch with Mother Nature herself to survive. That will always be true.

If we’re not in Right Relationship with Nature then woe be to those who feel her wrath- and we have- Hurricane Katrina, tsunami’s, earthquakes, mudslides, drought, flooding etc. There was an old margarine commercial “It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature” We’ve been coerced into fooling with Mother Nature even more with dangerous GMO seeds from Monsanto.

Another important Beltane 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. Drinking from the well before dawn of Beltane is also good luck.

THE HORNED GOD, is a powerful symbol and needs to be honored as a harbinger of the New masculine.

“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

MODERN RITUAL

If you can’t manage a bonfire, simply lighting a small fire will do. Intention is everything, so light a small fire in your home safely, write down what it is you want to dispel from your life and burn it in the flames. Or you could do a Jack be nimble Jack be quick and jump over a candle on the floor, very carefully for luck. If you are in a partnership cleanse it of disharmony, rekindle your vows. Drink water empowered with Love by focusing on sending love to even a glass of water or a pitcher of water, as Dr, Emoto. Empower the water with love and pour it on yourself your plants, your garden your threshold, your loved ones. Festoon your doorknobs with flowers, or hang flowers outside your home.

DANCE

Dancing around a Maypole may not be easily done these days, so simply imagine the May Pole the ancient boys and girls with the colored ribbons in their hands interweaving in and out to form the spiral pattern around the pole. Enjoy, celebrate, send prayers to the Sun and the Mother Earth. Dance with the Faeries, invite them into your home and your heart.

Participating with the thousands of neo-pagans, witches and all other indigenous people s at this time helps boost the energy. Left over Food from May 1st eve should be left out for the fairies.

JFK 50th Anniversary,Chiron Return of Camelot dream Astrology.

On the 5oth Anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination we are having the Astrology aspect called the Chiron return, Chiron the wounded HEALER, takes 50 years to make one complete cycle. It’s the re-wounding, feeling the vulnerability all over again. Completion.  11/22 on the 33rd degree Latitude. Very cosmic Master numbers for those who are into conspiracy theories.

JOhn F Kennedy Astrology

I was a young kid who had watched Kennedy debate Nixon on TV. Kennedy was so young and handsome, such a charismatic and eloquent speaker. The mood in Canada and the U.S. was of buoyant optimism. The cold war was very threatening, there were Fallout shelter raids at my public school.  I used to  have nightmares about World War 3. Yet there was this Camelot ideal which the media or the times portrayed. That once for a fleeting moment there was such a place as Camelot. The ideal of chivalry, democracy, high-mindedness. Kennedy was attempting to buck the system and organized crime. It wasn’t a total illusion.  

I remember the announcement at school that President Kennedy had been killed. I remember running home crying. My mother was crying. Some of my family are American and I remember long distance expensive phone calls to my Aunt and Uncle and cousins in New Jersey and Washington.  They were long time Democrats too.  We were all shattered, our hope optimism and security was destroyed. Murder/Assassination is a terrible thing. It’s happened many times in the U.S. history. The Kennedy assassination marked a wake up call for us. A dream became a terrible tragedy. I saw right away that it was all blatant lies,an organized death. Lee Harvey Oswald was, as he stated a patsy. Jack Ruby a hired thug, get rid of the witness on public Tv. There are numerous individuals who tracked the case later who were all killed, murdered, poisoned, given cancer, etc. JFK’s death was clearly dirty politics. See Oliver Stone’s movie.

I’d  had dreams about President Kennedy being killed months before it happened. I also dreamed about him for years afterwards.

Every person, place or event has a 50 year CHIRON RETURN. Chiron, the Centaur, the wounded healer, whose symbol is a key, represents where we are the most vulnerable and also where the greatest healing is, takes 50 years to return to it’s Natal event position. Thus the term….

Se chart below- President Kennedy chart as he was shot in Dallas at 12:30 pm. He died at 1:00 pm and transits now 2013 on November 22.

JFK Death 50 year Tara Greene Astrology

I’ve kept the chart large so its easier to see. CHIRON at 10 degrees Pisces in 63 is now at 9 degrees. It is time for us to feel the vulnerability of how hurt, disappointed,naive we were and still ARE. How much have we learned about media cover ups, secrecy, manipulation, addictions, ideals, romanticism,fantasy since then? 911, Monsanto, cancer treatments, Big Pharma, vaccinations, all of these things are suspect, public education, government in general, the Federal reserve, all corporate owned, brainwashing media, etc. in my world view. 

THE SUN Was of course at the very last “critical degree” of Scorpio. DEATH, Espionage, dirty secrets, lies, poisons, toxins, cancer, sex, power, control, laundered money, assassins, other people’s money, recycling, the underworld, organized crime, etc.

Transiting SATURN is just passed 15 degrees of  Neptune as it was in ’63. SATURN- depression, lead, reality will uncover the illusions, dreams, fantasies now. The dream is over so a new one can be born.

Transiting Saturn  in Scorpio is exactly Square to  ’63 Saturn at 17 degrees Aquarius. This symbolizes another new cycle, a re- embodying another layer of reality, laid down like tree rings onto the core issues. The symbol is about uncovering, using new technological devices to reveal hidden secrets.

Transiting URANUS is very close to Jupiter at 9 degrees ARIES which PLUTO is also squaring from Capricorn right now. Jupiter in Aries is  a youthful, forceful, fighter KING aspect. Uranus and Pluto are T- squaring that degree. There may be shocking public secrets and new evidence that comes out which changes the way the situation was viewed. Public anger.

MARS And Venus were conjunct in Sagittarius on Kennedy’s shooting. This symbolizes foreign influence, different factions working together. Pluto was squaring the two married planets from 14 degrees of Virgo then. This indicates secret liaisons and well planned and organized cover ups.

Co-incidentally on 911, the Astrology chart showed  the Sun at 18 degrees of Virgo, Uranus was at 21 degrees of  Aquarius right on the Ascendant of Kennedy’s murder. JUPITER was exactly at 11 degrees of CANCER. Chiron was at 23 degrees of Sagittarius which is conjunct Venus and Mars at Kennedy’s murder. Just saying…..

THE NORTH NODE Of the Moon on that fateful day in 1963 was 11 degrees of Cancer very close to the U.S. Sun, it’s identity at 13/14  degrees. Pluto is near to conjunction with the SOUTH Node now and Uranus is also squaring it.  A new perspective, uncovering hidden evidence, will out.  

NEPTUNE at 2 degrees PISCES now is squaring the MC or High noon position of JFK murder’s chart at 3 degrees Sagittarius.  Neptune the ruler of spirituality, compassion, addictions, delusions, the collective unconscious, may help us come out of the Fog collectively. I certainly  hope so.

Even though we now know JFK was a womanizer and a mere mortal he still holds that symbol of optimism, fairness, higher ethics, as a ideal. I’m glad that I got to live in that time of hope, that dream, like MLK’s dream. Millions of people were devastated to witness JFK’s tragic death and those dreams destroyed. Yet time and life has shown that their dreams and everyone’s dreams, hope, faith trust and innocence live on.

 We have to have faith,hope, trust. Times will be more tense in 2014 than 2013.

May Day Beltane Wiccan Pagan Fertility Festival

May Day Magic, Beltane, Faeries  FIRE and FERTILITY FESTIVAL


Beltane means “fire of Bel” or “bright fire” the “bale-fire”. Known as the bright and shinning one,  Celtic Sun God. Beli is the father, protector, and the husband of the Mother Goddess.  This is a FERTILITY CELEBRATION, The Beltane Fires, the MAY POLE, marking the cross quarter day between SPRING and SUMMER.

Beltane Maypole Wiccan pagan

MAY DAY is a traditional Fertility and Sacred Marriage Festival of the Sun to the Earth. The Bel fire is a sacred fire with healing and purifying powers. The fires celebrate the return of life, fruitfulness to the earth and the burning away of winter. The ashes of the Beltane fires were smudged on faces and scattered in the fields. Household fires would be extinguished and re-lit with fresh fire from the Bel Fires.


As Beltane marks this handfasting (wedding) of the Goddess and God, it too marks the reawakening of the earth’s fertility. This is the union between the Great Mother and her Young Consort; this coupling brings new life on earth. On a Spiritual level and a  physical, it is the union of the Earth and Sun, man and woman to bring about the fruitfulness of the growing season.

MAy DAy is alchemy in action, the sacred Marriage.

Mother nature shows Herself alive again, flowers are blooming, sprouting, birds are mating, building nests, bees are buzzing.  Beltane was and is a very auspicious time in Celtic lore.

The PLEIADES

Beltane is marked in the Heavens as the rising of the Pleiades star cluster just before sunrise on the morning horizon, whereas winter (Samhain/Halloween) begins when the Pleiades rises at sunset. The Pleiades were very important to many ancient cultures. Some Native American tribes say that their Ancestors were Star Beings who came from the Pleiades. In Japan, the modern car Subaru means Pleiades and 6 of the stars are shown on its symbol. {We’ve always driven Subaru’s partly for this reason.}

 The Ancients believed that the Wheel of Time would not turn without human intervention.

People did everything in their power to honour and call and beckon the Sun and His light, for the earth would not produce life without the Sun’s warmth, his Love. We usually don’t think of the Sun as a Loving God anymore. It is important to honour these Nature Festivals, or turning of the Wheel of the Year, our ancestors did so for thousands of years. N

If we’re not in Right Relationship with other Nature then woe be to those who feel her wrath- As we’ve been trying to fool Mother Nature for many years now and continue to do so in the Industrialized world, balance can be attained by participating in these kind of Ancient Festivals.

Neo-tribalism is a necessity now.

FAERIES

May Day is a magical day so be aware of incidents that may occur.  The Queen of the Faeries is said to ride out on her white hose and trying to entice people away to Faeryland. Legend says that if you sit beneath a  tree on Beltane night, you may see the Faery Queen in all Her Glory or hear the sound of Her horses’s belles as She rides throughout the night. 

FERTILITY

Young men and women wandered into the woods before daybreak of May Day morning with garlands of flowers and/or branches of trees. They would make love in the woods, and dance around the Maypole. Pre-Christian society’s thoughts about human sexuality and fertility were not based on guilt or any such concept as original sin, but seen as a joyous natural expression of human passions. Life was seen as a joyful dance, rich in all beauty to be celebrated not defined ordered, made lawful.
