Beltane Incense

Recommendation:

Jasmine


Magical Aspect:

Beltane is a season of fertility and fire, and you'll often see this reflected in the magic of the season.

In many traditions, this is the time of year for ritual sex and fertility magic, and for the magic found in gardens and nature.


Beltane Favors

AltarUse rich greens and colors reflecting the spring flowers. Incorporate a candle signifying the Beltane fire. Fertility symbols from nature like horns, seeds, and flowers, and a mother goddess symbol can round out the altar.

Herbs – All-heal, blessed thistle, broom, curry, daffodil, dogwood, coriander, dragon's blood reed, fern, fireweed, nettle, flaxseed, hawthorn, marjoram, paprika, radish, rue, snapdragon, mushroom, almond, meadowsweet, rose, woodruff, tansy, elder leaves.

Incense – Rose, jasmine, ylang, ylang, peach, musk, or vanilla.

Stones – Malachite, garnet, rose quartz, emerald, beryl, tourmaline.

Magick – Spells to ensure prosperity, conservation, safety, and love.

Depending on what kind of spellwork you're exploring, this can be a good time to collect some graveyard dirt. In many Pagan traditions, it is believed that on Beltane the veil between earth and the spiritual world is thin.

LUGHNASADH / LAMMAS - August 1st

LUGHNASADH / LAMMAS – Lughnasadh is one of the eight “sabbats” or solar festivals in the Wiccan Wheel of the Year. It is the first of the three autumn harvest festivals, the other two being the Autumn equinox (or Mabon) and Samhain. Some Pagans mark the holiday by baking a figure of the god in bread, and then symbolically sacrificing and eating it. The Celtic name seems to have been a late adoption among Wiccans, since in early versions of Wiccan literature the festival is merely referred to as “August Eve”.

Many Pagans also use the name Lammas for the sabbat, taken from the Anglo-Saxon and Christian holiday which occurs at about the same time. As the name (from the Anglo-Saxon hlafmæsse “loaf-mass”, “loaves festival”) implies, it is an agrarian-based festival and feast of thanksgiving for grain and bread, which symbolizes the first fruits of the harvest. Wiccan and other eclectic Neopagan rituals may incorporate elements from either festival.


Lughnasadh Celebration - TBD

When: TBD, 6:00PM
