7 Ways to Celebrate Beltane

7 Ways to Celebrate Beltane

by Andrea Pacini May 01, 2021

Happy Beltane (also known as May Day) - we are halfway between the spring equinox and summer solstice! ☀️

Traditionally this day has been celebrated to welcome fertility, flowering, abundance and the alignment of male and female energies. If you set an intention at the beginning of the year, then planted the seeds for it around the Spring Equinox, now is the time to take action so that your vision can fully blossom into reality!

Some ways to celebrate this weekend:

BLOSSOM & BLOOM. Gift yourself or a friend with flowers, deliver a bouquet to a friend in need or to a local nursing home or make a floral mandala with collected fallen blooms.

FIRE POWER. Get lit! Gaze upon the flame of a candle or gather around a fire pit. Check out this post about working with fire element for more ideas!

HERBAL INDULGENCE. Make lavender or rose lemonade or tea, add fresh thyme or basil to your food, cleanse your space with sage or rosemary.

CLEANSE. You know I’m all about a ritual bath! Add Epsom and pink salts, some feminine floral-inspired essential oils like gardenia, jasmine, ylang ylang, lavender and magnolia, rose quartz tumbles and flower petals for a celebratory self-care session.

NATURE. Enjoy nature by taking a mindful walk and noticing all of the sights and sounds - birds chirping, bunnies bouncing.

CELEBRATE. Harness the good vibes of this time of year by cooking a beautiful meal, picnicking in the park, or singing or dancing with friends.

CRYSTAL MAGIC. Work with crystals that will help support and amplify the energies you're working with - such as amazonite to help balance masculine and feminine energies or fire quartz to add a boost of clarity and energy to your action steps.

Top L to R: fire quartz, blue apatite, amber, snowflake obsidian, emerald, rainbow fluorite, amazonite, carnelian, charoite, opalite, moss agate, Tiger Eye

Which of these crystals is calling most loudly to you? Comment your fave and I will suggest a customized Beltane ritual for you!

Why Capacity Matters
Why Capacity Matters

Do you have the capacity to receive AND hold on to what you think you want?

Let’s try it – how does it feel in your body to imagine inviting a loving, healthy relationship into your life?

Where do you feel this in your body? What sensations do you feel when you imagine this? How does it feel – expansive or constricting? Do you feel a sense of lightness at the prospect of sharing your life with a supportive partner, or does the thought of this agitate you because your nervous system is used to chaotic relationships? Did you have to self-soothe as a child so now the thought of living with someone else makes you anxious because you are truly most comfortable alone?
