Beltane, May Day, is the ancient Celtic festival of fertility. Depending on one’s specific traditions, the fertility aspect could be focused on the livestock, the crops, the land, or human reproduction.
Last year, I tried to ignore Beltane. I was still pseudo freshly diagnosed with infertility and the thought of celebrating a holiday focused on fertility felt like a giant slap in the face.
This year, however, my belly is plump and my breasts are bulging. I am actually thrilled to be celebrating a Sabbat focused on fertility since, with a push from medical science, I myself am indeed fertile.
Previous years, I LOVED celebrating Beltane because the raw beauty of humanity is something I find sacred. Two consenting adults making love is a beautiful thing.
May you find bounty in whatever area you want to see grow in your life. Blessed Beltane.
