It's supposed to be spring in the great southern land :)
We have had wild weather, particularly in Melbourne : Torrential rain/Floods/wild winds and still quite cool for this time of year .
It's like winter is refusing to let go?
Today it's going to be lovely, however I sorta feel the sluggishness of spring waiting ?
I think she's still in hermit mode, just starting to peak a toe out of the cave.
Like most: the cycles affect me in the body. I can't be "bothered" !! It's like yeahh...next week I'll get to it.
Normally I'm bouncing off the walls with magical energy that spring brings.
Just started to feel a little of the energy return today :) Yay!
We are counting down to Beltane in the southern hemisphere
Beltane is a season of fertility, fire & renewal and we often find this reflected in the magic of the season. Spring magic, from ritual sex to fertility magic, along with the magic found in gardens and nature.
Northern Hemisphere Date: May 1st
Also known as Bealtaine, Walpurgisnacht, May Day, (Northern Hemisphere) & Novey Eve (in Southern Hemisphere).Beltane, the beginning of the summer months is at the November cross-quarter. This is the festival of the Great Rite - of sexual union between Goddess and God. Beltane is the spring fertility festival and there is feasting and celebration - a great festival for lovers! Beltane is the most popular time for Witches to be hand fasted. This is the time when the brilliant red flowers of the Flame Trees highlight Australian forests and gardens. Our famous horse race, the Melbourne Cup, is happily coincident with southern Beltane, being run on the first Tuesday in November and taken as an unofficial holiday across Australia.
Love beltane, because it brings back the sun ,fire and warmth after the long winter when we are still, it's time to be back in nature and align with earth after hibernation.
My body is slowly coming back and I find myself longing to lay in warmth of the rays and watch as the flowers bud.
It's been a long time coming.
Hail and welcome spring :)
