[Herbal_Witches_Cauldron] Crystals for Beltane (May Day)

The Wheel Of The Year: or four seasons are known as Solar Festivals, the cross quarter days are marked by Fire Festivals, together they form The Wheel of the Year. These holidays are celebrated from sundown on the date of the holiday through sundown the next day.


Found in France, at the end of the 19th century, The Coligny-Calendar is a compilation of pre-Christian Celtic systems of timekeeping, including the Gaulish Coligny calendar, used by Celtic countries to define the beginning and length of the day, the week, the month, the seasons, quarter days, and festivals. The Gaulish Coligny calendar is possibly the oldest Celtic solar/lunar ritual calendar. Evidence has shown that it was made under the auspices of the Druids,


 This Celtic holiday begins celebration on the eve of May 1st. Halfway between the vernal equinox and the summer solstice, it symbolizes the start of summer or the "light half of the year". This holiday honours the event of procreation and in Celtic lore, celebrates the God and Goddess of fertility. The Beltane Fire is symbolic of light returning and days lengthening. The lighting of bonfires is a ritual done in order to sanctify, purify and cleanse the body and soul of old habits and negativity.

The phallic Maypole, was an ancient tradition of dancing clockwise (sun-wise or disoleil) around a large tree or brightly decorated pole with ribbons and flowers. On Beltane eve, the Celts believed it was the fairies who were returning from their winter respite in time for summer.
