The Feast Of Beltane
The Feast Of Beltane occurs in the Celtic Calendar on November the 1st in the Southern Hemisphere.
Spring is at its peak and summer is just beginning. Mother Earth has many powers or energies, which are now very active. At this time all forms of life are bursting with fertility, resulting in many new lives being created.
The Maiden Goddess is the symbol of renewal and growth and is most powerful now. She causes Jack in the Green (the Green Man) to fall in love with the Goddess of Spring (The Spring Queen), known as Flora. They consummate their marriage and this symbolises the union of Earth and Sky.
In the times when the Celts were most prevalent, there was a guaranteed influx of new life nine months after the Feast Of Beltane.
