Beltane or May day is celebrated on the first day of May(go figure) some may argue that this is the true "lady day" and not Ostara. on this day we celebrate the warmth, fertility and growth of nature around us, as well as the union of the god and goddess which is made obvious by the greening of the plants and earth around us as they burst into life.  this is the last of three spring fertility ceremonies the other two being Imbolc and Ostara. pagans consider this holy day the second greatest sabbat of the 8 pagan ceremonies. it is the holiday of the bale fire that brings blessings into the home. Beltane is known for is feasting, laughter and fun. Romance and love play and intricate role in the celebrations. This Holiday we in vision the love between the lord and lady, laughter, song and dance take high precedence our rites.

 you can do many crafts this holiday you can make floral crowns, maypoles(either normal size or miniature), you can plant flowers(as this is the best time to do so) drums and rattles are also a good thing to make this time of year. a small tea set for the faeries with offerings of milk and honey can be a fun thing to do as well. Be creative in this time of growth.

a large feast with friends is always a fun thing to do as well, some foods associated with Beltane are,  oats, cakes, custards, cream cakes, honey, eggs, dandelion, Spring greens, shellfish, edible Spring flowers, it is common to include phallic symbols in the form of eclairs(God) or jam filled tarts (Goddess). Dairy, any foods known for their aphrodisiac properties. most fruits and any edible flowers are very highly recommended. 

 once again as with Ostara i am leaving the task of finding a good ritual for you, you can go online and look or you can write one your self, so blessed Beltane, marry meat marry part and marry meat again

A Wiccaning for Adults.

I have one wiccaning on here already, but it is meant more for small children I have two friends who will be getting their pagan names this week and I thought I'd share what we are doing for them for privacy purposes I'll be changing their mundane names :D Also I can not take full credit for this...the Goddess sent it to me in a dream.

Prepare your alter in the normal way, cast your circle of protection, and call your quarters. place some small cakes or cookies on a platter, and a glass(or many if  you are uncomfortable with sharing germs) with wine, mead, or juice.

(who ever is giving the ritual says)
  "As we journey through life we choose many important paths, you have chosen to take the path  to the Gods and Goddesses, and so today we give you your pagan names.

John the God and Goddess have given you the name Tintean, meaning hearth, for like a Tintean you keep your family protected, you hold them in your arms keeping them warm. With you they are loved. do you promise to up hold the name the God and Goddess have  given you?"

John- "I do so promise"

"Marie the God and Goddess have given you the name Gypsy Flame  for as a Gypsy loves and protect her family so do you, as a Flame warms and provides so do you. do you promise to uphold the name the God and Goddess have given you?"

Marie- "I do so promise"

"Then I send you Tintean, and you Gypsy Flame on your new path with the God and Goddess, may your voice be heard, your words ring true, and your heart be open. With these cakes and wine may we all be blessed by the God and Goddess."   

pass around the cakes and wine for every one to enjoy, when done every onw says
"Hail Tintean!"
"Hail Gypsy Flame!"

calling your true love to you

now most love spells you would cast on a specific person...this is a bad idea because it causes infatuation not love and often makes people become obsessive to a point that they hurt either you them self's or someone else... this one you cast into the universe and it helps you find true love...and yes i did write this my self

cauldron(or a small glass or metal bowl,NOT PLASTIC!)
something to stir with
rose petals(dried)
rose red candle
love oil
sexual energy oil
lovers incense
small cup of water
something symbolizing you, or something you keep with you always(i have a lock of my own hair, you could also use a piece of jewelery,a picture of you, ect.)

set up your alter as you normally would using the lovers incense to represent air, but use a different candle or hot coal(shisha-lite) to represent fire. make sure you have a representation of the god and goddess. place all your items on your alter, the cup of water to be set aside.

cast your circle and call your corners.
take 1/2 of your petals and place them in the cauldron saying

"petals of the Rose so delicate and pure. True love may you bring to me"

light you rose-red candle

"fire of love ring true, with this candle i rid myself of bad relationships and false love"

light the rose petals on fire with the candle(this may take a few tries depending on how dry the petals are) lte them burn almost all the way out. pour the extra water over it

"Crystal  clear water make it easy for me to see true love when it finds me"

add 2 drops of the love oil

"mother goddess please send to me the one you know is meant for me"

add 2 drops of the sexual energy oil

"father god let my love be attracted to me sexually"

place the representation of you in and stir

"this is me true love may come and be known, please find the heart you own"

continue to stir while you visualize love finding you and being happy, take as long as you need until you feel you have gathered enough of this energy within your circle. put the other 1/2 of the petals on your alter, take your representation out and place on the petals to dry close you circle releasing the energy, thank the corners and the god and goddess for joining you in your rite. once the representation of you is dry keep it close to where you sleep, or on you as often as possible. and remember give it time to work, and don't ever give up on love.
