Beltane Sabbat Box Theme Release • Earth's Instinct 0
Though we live in the Northern Hemisphere and have started to celebrate the return of the sun since Imbolc, our Earth as a whole -- between the Northern and Southern hemispheres, lives in perpetual duality. What that means is, when looking at the Wheel of the Year, one is able to see that Beltane and Samhain occur at the half-way points, as we travel through the Wheel of the Year. With that being said, some believe that similarly with Samhain, "the veil," (the veil between the our world and the afterlife) is equally as thin on Beltane as it is on Samhain, making this is great time to include some ancestral workings or magick into your Beltane celebrations as well. Make an offering for your ancestors, family members that have passed or those who came before you. Though it may saddening, part of Earth's and nature's instinct is to bring about new life, and with that same natural force of life, comes death. Both serve a purpose to our existence and both are relative to the celebration of Beltane.
