Beltane Traditions

Forums: 

We discussed Beltane traditions along with how we celebrated our Beltane.  Here are some bits of what was discussed:

  • This is a fertility Festival
  • The Mountain Ancestors Grove used the land of Colorado as their being of the occasion
  • Tear of the Cloud Grove honored Bellanos and Danu
  • This is a festival that is all about fertility, and sexual energy
  • Fire is one of the big traditions
    • Bel fires in Ireland where they drive animals between for fertility
    • Jumping fires in modern Pagan context to promote fertility
  • Maypole is a common tradition
    • The pole is representative of the male, the hole in the ground is representative of the female, and the dance is celebration of their union.
    • The dance is also weaving (literally) fertility magic
