Beltane

Observed on May 1st, or the first Full Moon in Taurus.  Other names for it are ‘May Day’ or ‘Lady Day’.  It is primarily a fertility festival with nature enchantments and offerings to wildlings and Elementals.  The powers of elves and faeries are growing and will reach their height at the Summer Solstice.  A time of great majick, it is good for all divinations and for establishing a woodland or garden shrine.  The house guardians should be honored at this time.
