~ Santisima Muerte Beltane Ritual ~

Beltane is a day for fertility rites, light-hearted celebration and sexual revelry, for love-chases, maypole dancing and performing the Great Rite to honour the Mother: make May Baskets and weave flower garlands – choose a May Queen to represent the Goddess – wear green and crowns of flowers – dance naked in the crops or ride a broomstick through the fields, for the fertility of the land – leave offerings for fairies – gather in sacred groves – pay homage to your household gods.  In the Wheel of the Year, the Goddess and God reach young adulthood; both are in their green prime.  They become lovers and consummate their union.

We will be lighting candles specially prepared and blessed with oils and herbs especially prepared for this ritual then placed at the altar of La Santisima Muerte for the purpose of bringing aide to our workings in areas of self-love, beauty, relationships, marriages, pregnancies and other areas in which the seeds we planted at Ostara need to come to fruition.  The ritual may be recorded and uploaded to our website via YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.
