Happy Beltane, one and all!
And a very magical May day as well.
Did you find yourselves out at dawn, rolling in the morning dew for a youth spell? Did you collect the blooming buds of flowers to weave beauty and charm into your life? Or alight the great Beltane fires and jumped over them to bring fortune for the rest of the year!
Beltane is one among the fire festivals of the seasons. The coming of two seasons, joining together for electric Spring and Summer passion. It’s after this holiday, that many could say notice a magical air within the weather. A cool and heated embrace.
Many witches love to cast their magicks during this time. The energies are charged. Wiccans associate this with the aftermath of the God and Goddess lovemaking. When magick is blessed by their joined power. Nevertheless, magick is especially potent; fertile, and is easily accessible at this time.
Here are spells that are best done on Beltane, or anytime of this month.
Hearth Flame Spell
Turn off all the lights of the home just before sunset.
Outside, create a bonfire. Traditionally, 9 woods were casted into the fire to create a universal blessing. These woods are:
As the fire is ablaze, light a white candle and bring it into the home to rekindle the hearth fire.
One can say a prayer or chant:
Allow the white candle to burn down for the rest of the night. And the spell is done.
Flame and Smoke Spell
For the coming summer, one has to cleanse and prepare. The summer season is time of change and activity, so this purification will help get you ready for the challenges to come.
Gather 2 candles. Color code it to fit with the sort of cleansing you wish.
- White is universal cleanse
- Yellow is mental cleanse
- Blue is emotional cleanse
- Green is body cleanse
- Purple is spirit cleanse
Gather 2 incense. Again try to best fit with your cleanse.
- Frankincense is universal
- Copal is mental
- Myrrh is emotions
- Sandalwood is body
- Dragon’s Blood is spirit
Sit in between these candles and incense and allow it to purify all that is within. Meditate. The spell is done.
The Sun’s Blessing
The sun is fully awake at this time, and grows stronger as summer nears. Sing to the Sun at noon time, to call down his blessings for the coming summer. It doesn’t matter which song to sing, just as long as it comes from the heart.
Any rain that falls during this month is especially potent with magical properties. Collect the rainwater in order to contribute to most any spells. From healing, to cleanses, to prosperity, and luck. To love, to happiness, to mental powers, and psychic. Rainwater can even be distilled in order to add to magical dishes and teas!
This is but a few, and yet so much more can be done during this time of May. Be inspired, and feel the magick all around!
