The hills are greening, flowers bloom; there's birdsong, nestmaking and gardens waiting for blessing. With the Maiden Earth in ovulation, creatures are enlivened, inclined to entwine! Warm hearted, we stretch in the sun, walk barefoot in the new grass, bear the spring rains with good cheer and gratefulness. Passions stir-flashes of sweet desire, hot lightning of anger, gusts of giddiness, heartbreaks of grief and fits of unbearable joy. How to meet these relentless tremors? DANCE!
In circles, growl and flirt, wail and strut and yip! Exaggerate feeling until laughter or tears claim you-and then, keep dancing. No matter the furies unleashed in the world, a circle of lovers dancing out passions is a potent alchemical mandala. Shakers sing it this way: "To turn, turn, will be our delight, Till by turning, turning, we come 'round right." Weaving in and around one another, we thread our passions in the web. Warp and woof, spokes and runners, take up your strands with clear intent. Weave what you want into being, into Life!
Beltane, the celebration of the living. The time where everything, everyone is ripe. The land is lush, and love is lucious. Let us rejoice in the living world: plants, animals, and humans. Let us honor our ability to create, and more importantly the magic of our ability to reproduce. There is so much to celebrate...dance, sing, laugh out loud! Make good and make love. Happy May Day!
