Happy Beltane!

beltane

To all of you – a Happy Beltane! I wish you ecstasy, beauty, sensuality and the glorious knowledge how it is to be alive in the middle of Taurus. Dig your hands into the earth, forget about your manicure, just enjoy and feel and be.

Flowers everywhere, the birds are mating in our backyard, the seedlings are growing like mad, and the Japanese cherry is fully covered in pink bloom.

 

Hear ye the words of the Star Goddess;
she in the dust of whose feet are the hosts
of heaven, and whose body encircles the universe

I who am the beauty of the green earth,
the white moon among the stars, and the mystery
of the waters call unto thy soul;
Arise, and come unto me.

I am the soul of nature who gives life to the universe.
From Me all things proceed, and unto Me all things must return.
Before My face, beloved of gods and of men, let thine
innermost divine self be enfolded in the rapture of the infinite.

Let My worship be within the heart that rejoices,
for behold, all acts of love and pleasure are My rituals.
Therefore let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion,
honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.

To thou who thinkest to seek Me, know that thy seeking and
yearning shall avail thee not unless thou knowest the Mystery.
If that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee,
thou wilt never find it without.

For behold, I have been with thee from the beginning; and
I am that which is attained at the end of desire.”

– from Doreen Valiente’s “Charge of the Goddess”
