My thoughts are currently turning towards Samhain / Beltaine 2019.
Easter has just passed, and we are still in the Jewish Passover Period.
In the Southern Hemisphere, we are turning towards Samhain.
The days grow shorter and the nights are colder.
In Australia, this is coupled with ANZAC Day commemorations.
ANZAC Day has enormous cultural significance here.
As a commemoration of the Fallen, it sits very well with the Spirit of this festival.
Equally, no festival is independent of the Wheel of the Year.
At the same time, our Beloveds in the Northern Hemisphere turn their faces, like flowers, towards Beltaine.
Consequently, I find that I also reflect upon the Beltaine past, and the one to come.
Generally speaking, there are two possible points to mark this Sacred Moment.
This depends upon how you mark the Wheel.
For me, it is May 06th, with the Exact Moment being 0458.
This is going to be just after the New Moon on May 05th @ 08:45.
However, if you use the date based tradition, it will be April 31st / May 01st.
I thought I would share some of the blog posts that I have been reflecting upon.
