Beltane... Musings From a Still Somewhat Beginner
I'm still learning how to celebrate and honor the solstices and the Sabbaths.
Being a Solitary, its not like I have a Teacher or Mentor, other than my books so it takes time some time to acquire the needed knowledge.
As a child I always loved the idea of celebrating the first of May with flowers and a joyous nod to Springtime.
Now that I know the true knowledge of the Time. I'm gathering altar ideas, recipes and rituals.
Scott Cunningham's Book , A Guide for the Solitary practitioner has a recipe for Crescent cakes( almond butter cookies) I'll be baking.
Beltane Eve we will be hosting our neighborhood's annual homeowners meeting. I'll have white and green candles burning on the mantel over the fireplace, white and yellow fresh flowers in vases sitting about and I'll be serving the cookies.
Anyone have any ideas for anything else I might want to do?
I'll take all and any suggestions.
