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)

Beltaine ~ May 1st ~ In Irish mythology, the beginning of the Summer season for the Tuatha Dé Danann and the Milesians started at Bealtaine. Great bonfires would mark a time of purification and transition, heralding in the season in the hope of a good harvest later in the year, and were accompanied with ritual acts to protect the people from any harm by Otherworldly spirits.

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."

Blessed be this day of Beltane. Wedding day of the Goddess and the God. Hold day of Sacred Marriage. Holy night of Sacred Union. The fertile Goddess of Summer walks through the land with the Great Horned God of the Forest, and the dark time of Winter is behind me.
