Our Resident Witch
Welcoming the sun back
Sorcha Kincaid, Wiccan High Priestess, Chilliwack
ost years Beltane is celebrated on the 1st of May (hence the name Mayday). This year however, many of us are waiting just a bit longer. On Saturday, May 5th, will be a full moon and a special time for Beltane blessings, worship, and ritual.
The full moon adds to our connection with The Goddess, which is already strong at this time.
Beltane celebrations and rites may include Maypoles, leaping over Bel-fires, and a May Queen. Traditionally, livestock was carried/driven in between two Bel-fires for the blessing of fertility to be received and weddings were often performed at this time.
Representations of your deities (Goddess and God) and symbols of fertility and prosperity should be included as well. Rituals written for solitary and group use are posted all over the internet for the use of others. They can be used as found or changed to suite your beliefs, deities, or needs.
Sorcha Kincaid is a practicing Wiccan High Priestess, a mom and works in Chilliwack. She's lived in town for many years and loves the city and surrounding countryside.
Looking for a wand? Sorcha has them. Beautiful, handmade and set with semi-precious gems.
