Beltane Festival – Hawthorn Earrings, Forest
Beltane marks spring in its full flourishing. Beltane is a well-known fire festival celebrating love, lust, flowers, the sun-fire, creativity, protection, mystical connection and transformation. The May Queen scatters hawthorn flowers to attract the Green Man so they can be together in wild divine love. Fertility naturally follows and earth is renewed. The maypole dance on the following day is a fertility rite. The hawthorn tree with its intricate green leaves, white flowers and sharp thorns is sacred to Beltane. Hawthorn bushes are said to be entrances to the magical otherworld. The flowering of the Hawthorn tree marks the beginning of Beltane. Gather your family or spiritual circle of friends; create your outdoor fire, have your vegetable feast ready, dress in Beltane colours and flower crown, create some activities for spiritual empowerment and transformation. Ask Bel the sun God for healing. Celebrate in the evening, followed by a day of nature appreciation.
