The word Beltane means fire of Bel. It was thought to be derived from the name of the Sun God 'Belinus.' However, the Gaelic word 'Beal,' meaning 'shining, brilliant' could also be at the root of this word, making its translation "brilliant fire." Now is the time for great rites of fertility to take place, as this Sabbat celebrates the Mother Goddess accepting the God in Sacred Marriage and Union. © 04302013 The Wyrding Way (artist: Alphonse Mucha)

Hawthorn by Peter Pracownik. "The Hawthorn (Celtic name Huath) flowers at Beltane, the third and final rite of Spring. It celebrates the vanquishing of the Dark Lord of Winter and the advent of the rampant fertility of New Creation."

Wishing everyone a Blessed Beltain/May Day!
