In the wheel of the Celtic year in the Northern Hemisphere we have reached Beltane. This is a time of dancing around the Maypole winding ribbons symbolizing an ancient understanding of life and sexuality bringing forth life. In my Reclaiming witch tradition we acknowledge that aspect and so much more. As someone who just emerged from what could have killed me (severe dehydration and not enough calories in to sustain my life) this Beltane reminds me about the powerful life force flowing through everything. The same power that brings new life to the land after a fire or other natural or human caused disaster that interrupts life. This Beltane for me it is about dancing those ribbons in my body, through the amazing medical community who tended me and the passion of family of blood and choice who surrounded me, and all of you who added energy, thoughts, prayers, and love. This Beltane I am blessed beyond measure by the power of life and love. Blessings to you and your beloveds this Beltane whether they are lovers, friends, children or a passion for work and/or creativity bringing forth art or the simplest bits of your work keeping life flowing..
