Quiet Beltane

Happy Beltane to everyone of the Pagan persuasion, and Happy May to those of you who are not. May is my favourite month. I’m not sure if it is because of my birthday (which I am becoming less fond of), or because the trees finally come into leaf, or because I can wear sandals! 🙂

Quite frankly, I’m not really in a Beltane celebrating sort of mood today. My PMS has turned me into a raging beast this month, and I am having a horrible time controlling it. So, I’m going to try to make today a quiet one. If it doesn’t rain, I hope to walk over to the park and enjoy the outside for a little while. If it does rain, then I am happy to stay inside and spend some time alone meditating on some things.

Today is supposed to be a day to celebrate the marriage of the Lord and Lady, and to celebrate the fertility of the earth. And really, I think that can be done with a huge party and drinking. Actually, Pagans drinking makes me pretty uncomfortable.

    Blessed Beltane to you, Sil!

    I used to feel the same way about my birthday, until Meg was born. It really changes your perspective on the sacredness of the your natal day.

    I love your blog. Instant relaxation on the monitor. *thumbs up*

    I so totally get your comment about Pagans drinking. I’m a very light drinker myself. Sometimes I think a lot of Pagans take the indulgence thing waaaaaaaaaay overboard.
