Happy May Day

flowers 11


 by Tara Sutphen


Beltaine is the “Celebration of the Light”,the light time of the year. The dark time being remembered by Samhain. May 1 is the day in the middle of the spring and the summer equinox’ (15*Taurus). May Day is the time for love and the happiness of summer on it’s way.


Beltane is a celebration of the union of souls, The union of minds, and the union of bodies. The earth mother calls her progeny to replenish the earth. Flowers decorate hair and everywhere. Maypole ribbon dances, with two circles interweaving around a decorated tree or pole, clockwise dance circles. Bonfires or candles to spark the sacred fire of union and fertility.


Druids and Pagans raised the Beltaine fires on hilltops on May Eve, the fires were lit in order to bring the sun’s light down to earth. Earth awakening from it’s long winter nap and the flowers are in bloom and frolicking abounds. Joy alights your body, mind, and spirit, the colors become brighter, you see the best in everyone, casting away all worries and doubts you collected over the winter time.All nightmares become daydreams of love, hope and harmony.


 Beltaine or Beltane is an anglicization of the Irish “Bealtaine” or the Scottish “Bealtuinn.” — “bel,”brilliant”, “tene” “fire” 



Things to do on Beltaine alone or with a group


Create a Beltaine circle or group

Buy or Pick flowers


maywine (alcoholic or non alcoholic)

Candles, Fireplace, Bonfire — Lighting a fire with a blessing

May pole (you can use a tree if you don’t have a pole) garnish w. greenery and flowers – tie long ribbon


If you create a May pole, make lots of wishes while you walk clockwise into your future, and at the end of wrapping the ribbon say a blessing for yourself and end with “to love and be loved, So it is”. If the tree/pole ribbons pretty and sturdy enough you could leave until Samhain.


Some of the questions that you can ask your friends or family are:

What were the highlights in your winter? Everyone must come up with at least one if not several highlights. What are the dreams to enliven your spring and summer? Every one should convey their intentions for the summer.

Thinking Magically™ | Apply the Law of the Vital Few to Your Magic

“80% of success is showing up.”
– Woody Allen

Vilfredo Pareto was a Professor of Political Economy at Lausanne, Switzerland and lived from 1848 to 1923. One of his observations was the fact that 80% of the land in Italy was owned by only 20% of the population or, to put it another way, the majority of wealth in Italy was owned and controlled by the effective few. This 80:20 rule has come to be known as the Pareto Principle (or the Law of the Vital Few, as I like to use it) and was originally popularized by Joseph Moses Juran (1904 – 2008) when Juran expanded the Pareto Principle to include observations such as 80% of a problem is caused by 20% of the causes.

Many, many public speakers from all industries and walks of life now tout Juran’s breakthroughs. Naturally, it has become very fashionable to discuss…
