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 | Beltaine 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.

The Full Super Blood Wolf Moon (Native American) at 0* Leo will culminate, January 20, 2019 9:17pm pacific/12:17am eastern (Farmers Almanac). The current phase of the moon is a Waxing Gibbous (94.8% illuminated), 12.6 days old and at a distance of 369002 Km (229287 Miles).Km (249331 Miles). This Leo Full Moon is a Total Lunar Eclipse. When we have an eclipse, it’s time to change or let go of something holding us back. Take time to meditate on what you’d like unblocked or cleaned up in your life as It brings something exciting or illuminating to each of us. The “Blood” moon will be seen in a Tetrad phase of light, the same phenomenon observed every sunrise and sunset. They call this moon, the Super Blood Wolf Moon, a super moon is only 8% bigger than normal, but when it first appears at the skyline you can see the illusion of how huge it appears!
This Leo Moon is creating a rebirth, you are wanting to start over on some of your dreams or revising what hasn’t worked. What has hindered you from getting what you want. Do you know what you want. It could be that you are missing pieces of your success formula, your health regime, deep wisdom, extra knowledge or your love techniques, but whether it’s learning a new skill, getting your health in order or experiencing love, designing your future is in the works. What has held you back is going to be surpassed with the eclipse. If you’ve been struggling you’re going take charge again.
It’s as if you’ve been brought a gift, and it’s exactly what you need. Remember to close your eyes and accept the best. Not only does your courage swell but you are renewed and given more than what you need. You’ll think, you are making up your mind, but it will be deeper than that, it’s your soul goals getting back on track. We have many opportunities to reboot and we don’t want the universe kicking our butts, we really want to make the best decisions for ourselves. So we’re given the chance to come back to a reawakening, but remember when we were born we had an innocence and a readiness to be on the adventure. We are to bring the lost parts of ourselves back into our soul essence, our willingness to play the game of life. We think there are tricky ways to do that, but it just takes common sense to rebalance our inner nature.
3-5 sentences+ for each question.
–For the eclipse, what are you needing to change or get out of your life
-How can you rebalance:
Where are you most ambitious:
Your new viewpoint:
acceptance of yourself
acceptance of others
Spending too much time on others and not yourself
Spending too much time on yourself and not on others
Forward movement toward positive activities
Forward movement toward negative activities
-Time management, how long with each:
-When creating calmness in your life:
Breathing deeply a few times a day
Drinking more water
Taking a walk
Writing in a Journal
Creating a solution
Saying nice things to people
Waving here or there to people
Enjoying a color
Complimenting your kids
-Can you clearly say this is what I do now and I like it or I’d like to see a change:
What are you doing now
What job will you have next year
What job will you have in 5 years
What job will you have in 10 years
Do you stay with a career
Do you change careers often
Do you like jobs
Do you like responsibility
Do you like to be a boss
Are you a good boss
Are you a good employee
What makes you happy
When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up
What is your career
What is your self confidence
What is your earning potential
What is your verve for life
Are you a winner
Are you sometimes winning
Are you winning yet losing
Are you losing but close to winning
What could make you win
What could make you content
—-What are the areas we feel held back, it can be emotions or regrets, physically not being strong enough, or a lack of motivation. Can you pinpoint where you’ve been held back or is it vague. Did you stop going for what you want and started accepting what came your way. Sometimes its a natural course just to wait to see what shows up, want more but you’re content with what you have, and when I say have it’s not physical things, it can be the wife/husband or children you wanted, the jobs that are good and maybe you struggle but you’re content. You eat well and thankful for what you do have. Your house isn’t big but you can survive. And maybe you want more, you might strive to have more or surprised you do. What brings you satisfaction, how do you strive. May be you are never satisfied and wake up with a hunger everyday and can’t figure out what it is… The flame within your soul is to be reignited, your verve, your ideas, talents, solutions and decisions are to be seen. Whatever is dormant is now active.
*How to become powerful: You must have role models to emulate, you don’t always have to be liked but you must fulfill what people need. You will have to have a “Strategy and Skill”. You will keep strategizing, knowing how to guide yourselves and others into growth and abundance. Be careful as you can end up working in boring jobs for many years and gain no real power or prestige. You can be wanting recognition. But there is only one thing to remember and again plan for, power has “an end”. You will be usurped by the younger generation or go out of vogue in some way. If you can be fair and aboveboard, you’ll gain respect along with money. You can keep going forward, having a great life, well earned and be treated nicely in old age.
*Using your Intuition: Using your intuition and psychic ability to move forward. Feeling good about the decisions you make. Knowing when wrong feelings happen they can indicate going in a wrong direction.
*When meditating, remember you’re going to go past your mind and it’s set ideas, and proceeding toward the heart, taking it deeper, releasing false sentiments and just float in your divinity, going deeper and deeper to your very essence. Reaching into the core of your being. Shift into knowing you will begin to float in calmness as the eclipse takes away anxiety and confusion, replaced is gifts of knowledge and wisdom, quality of time and being one with your adventure on earth.
—– “We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aid, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.” – Henry David Thoreau – American Poet and Philosopher 1817-1862
Meditation By Tara Sutphen
Following Tara’s “under the stars” induction, you travel to a sacred stone circle in the middle of a meadow. Here, in the center of the circle, you meet a beautiful woman dressed in chiffon. As she chants, you experience an expanding vortex of power within: “Where light meets darkness … where the beginning encircles the end … where joy nullifies pain … we now choose to slip between the worlds beyond time, beyond space, and we invoke the positive powers of the Universe to assist us to manifest our desires.” Chakra balancing is followed with an inspiration ritual in which you open your heart and mind to the limitless positive potentials of life on earth. You withdraw an object from a box that relates to your purpose. Walking counter clockwise you recall a happy event from the past and transmit the vibrations into the present. A clock becomes a symbol placed in the circle to assist you make the most of your valuable time. Much more. 30 Minutes.TS216 — $10.99 (MP3)
The Full Blood Buck Moon at 4* Aquarius will culminate July 27, 2018 1:20pm pdt/4:20 edt (almanac). The current phase of the moon is a Waxing Gibbous (97.9% illuminated), 13.4 days old and at a distance of 405039 Km (251680 Miles).
With this Full Blood Buck Moon there is a Total Lunar eclipse and in opposition to Mars. The Red Planet will appear brightest from July 27-31, as it makes its closest approach to Earth in 15 years. Mars will be a mere 36 million miles from Earth. When meditating with a lunar eclipse contemplate upon releasing an ailment, problems or controversy. it’s better to make the choice then allowing the universe to make your decisions. We make an effort to set our personal intentions.
The Blood Moon is indicative with a lunar eclipse and is a tetrad phase, where the suns light is refracted to appear red on the shadow.
Mars is also at 4* Aquarius and with the red planet accompanying the Blood Moon, it will clearly be quite a celestial event. It also is the longest eclipse so far in the 21st Century.
It is a time to set yourself free from what mentally has been holding you back. We have stamina and sustainment for life and it’s offerings. Looking toward the future, making new plans for your job and home life. Creating specific goals for health and conducive living day to day. You can heal on an in-depth level body, mind and soul. This is a reset button, it’s been a painful process but now it’s time to change course to continue goals and fulfill your purpose.
How to plan ahead:
• Determine what you want
• Pros & Cons
• Detect your Dislikes
• What is Real, Hypothetical, or Dramatic
• Worst case Scenario
• Best case Scenario
• Possible Actions
Write in your journal for the full moon and throughout the month.

· Do you pay attention to your daydreams?
· Do you have wishful thinking?
· Do you have expectations?
· Do others have expectations of you?

We get a second chance to gain a burst of energy to make plans and create goals. Determining what we use to like before all the conditioning and programming began, it’s time to readjust and know we’ve been given a break. It’s all viewpoint and we can now head toward our dreams.
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive , and go do it. Because he wold needs people who have come alive. ~Howard Thurman – Theologian (1900-1981)
Within a Native American teepee, a Medicine Woman directs a sacred healing journey. Excerpt: “She pours a small amount of earth into the center of your palm, explaining that Mother Earth will take care of her children if allowed to do so.”
Through touch, she analyzes your state of health. This is followed by pressing points from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet — energizing your body and mind. You’re wrapped in a medicine-soaked warm cloth and experience a chanting, humming ritual. “Experience the rituals and feel the poultices upon your body. They’re drawing out all that you desire to be gone … healing you … healing you.” More rituals are performed, and you will perceive a personal healing message, guided by spirit. 30 Minutes.
