May 1st is Beltane, one of eight festivals on the Wiccan Wheel of the Year. Traditionally, Beltane is the time for spells and rituals to bring love and creativity into your life. The Goddess Flora and the Green Man are patrons of this day and Fairies abound in the woods!
Today, Wiccans also use this festival for love spells, to take advantage of all the energy in the air. To celebrate Beltane, set up your altar and perform your ritual on either April 30, or May 1st. Use red and green candles to symbolize the twin themes of love and creativity, or red and pink for love spells.
Colours: red, green, white
