Beltane

Beltane is a Celtic celebration that marks the start of summer, on May 1st(November 1st in the Southern Hemisphere).


It's a time for rituals that promote fertility, love and balance. For some it is known as the Festival of Fire because large bonfires were lit to symbolically purify, revitalize and bless nearby farms and herds.

Women who wanted to get pregnant would build a small fire in a cauldron, which was a representation of the womb, and would jump over it. Or for some, fertility could be for the mind and creativity.


Beltane today is a time to embrace our own sexuality and to rethink our relationships. Beltane is a reminder that self-acceptance is important to the creation of safe, productive relationships.
