Ah Beltane….that wonderful time of the season. When the trees are budding and many spring flowers have spread their petals wide.
The soil has been tilled, and the seeds started, with the hopes for summer crops to come.
For some it is a time of shared connection, of couples and community. For others it is a deepening between the Solitary and the land itself. A closeness, a connection, and the digging of spiritual roots deep into the earth.
May you find sustenance. If lonely, may you find connection. May you drink in the sun and the rain, and be filled with a vibrancy that lifts you, fills your world with color, and helps you fly on winds of magic and delight.
p.s Additional thoughts regarding the season of Beltane. Not everyone has a partner or community in which to celebrate this holiday, which can increase a sense of loneliness and isolation. John Beckett recently addressed this in a Patheos article titled Beltane – a Solitary ritual.
