Beltane, Keltfest 2018
It’s the beginning of summer! We honor the power of the sun and the fertility of mother earth. We celebrate the light, all new life. We celebrate glorious life itself!
It’s that time of the year! Everybody does it! The birds and the bees. Love is in the air, lovers will find each other!
I am the Pagan Lady, an urban witch from the Hague. Like last year I will organize, together with my coven Diana, the passionate ritual of Beltane. We invite everybody to join us. Dance, sing and have a jolly good time with each other, and fall in love with life itself.
At 15:30, we start with the hunt. The men need to gain as many little rings from the women as they can. The man with the most rings will be crowned as the May king and gets to choose his bride.
This couple will be the symbol for the power of nature and the union of divine male and female.
At 16:00, the ritual begins and the Maypole will be placed. Grab one of the ribbons and dance around the pole accompanied by merry musicians!
At 17:00, we take this sparkling energy with us to the sacred fire and jump over it for protection and fertility of all our plans and wishes.
