About the Event
The ancient Celtic name for the celebration of the bright half of the year was called Beltaine (pronounced "Bee- el- tin- uh") or Beltane. This holiday of love, joy, beauty and laughter is celebrated also as May Day. In our modern times, we have the opportunity to think about, contemplate, experience and celebrate this pivotal seasonal shift in a personal a way. We recognize and honor the Flowering Goddess and King of the Wood, the Faerie Folk and Nature Spirits…we connect with the rhythms of the Earth, the running of sap in trees, the blossoms and buds bursting forth, the scents of flowers and new growth. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we welcome the warmer weather, the Green Life that is showing itself again in our parks and gardens, and as Witches and mystical folk we take this opportunity to make magick for our own growth and soul evolution and give gratitude for surviving the dark tides of Winter.
Just as Samhain causes us to reflect on death, Beltaine is a time to celebrate life and the promise of a future with infinite possibilities for creativity and beauty. In our ceremony we will honor the Ancestors, the Spirits of the land and all its creatures, and turn the Wheel of the Year. Beltane initiates a season of rejoicing in the multi-colored hues of nature's tapestry and the warming rays of the Sun, helping to lift our burdens and ease our hearts, bringing inspiration and new opportunities.
Our special ritual presenters tonight again include: Lady Belladonna LaVeau and Dusty Dionne, Arch Priestess and Arch Priest of the Aquarian Tabernacle Church based in Washington State that sponsors us; Occultist & Witch HP.

Blessed Be With Love From Salem,
