Beltane is celebrated April 30th or May 1st. This is the celebration of rebirth, life and love. A familiar tradition of Beltane is the Maypole. The ribbons on the pole are white and red to represent the Goddess and God. There is love between the Stag Lord and the young Green Earth Goddess at this time, an awakening of their sexual union and of the magickal energies within. A time for them to bring forth their magickal intentions upon the Earth. This is a time for new beginnings and projects.
