And so to May. We begin with the time of Beltane (bel’ta-na). One of the festivals that mark the turning of the Celtic Calendar. It is often celebrated on the 1st of May, and so coincides with today. A new month. A celebration of what might come.
Beltane was, or is, all about encouraging growth. Crops and livestock were blessed and rituals took place to promote a successful time ahead. I am looking for a successful time ahead. I am seeking Beltane Blessings and I pray that you may be blessed as well.
I’m optimistic that this month will bring big changes. My pilgrimage is ongoing and events beyond my control may move forward. It is difficult to accept that some things can’t be controlled by myself. The danger is that I let those things paralyse me concerning things I can control.
As the ancients celebrating Beltane would plant their crops and herd their cattle whilst praying and believing that the weather and spirits beyond their control would bless them, I also need to work on my own creative projects whilst praying and believing that things beyond my control will bless my journey.
There is much beyond my control.
There is much beyond our control.
Yet may we be blessed this Beltane.
May May mark process on our journeys.
