After many bright and beautiful weeks, the weather has taken a noticeable change. I am writing this post curled up in bed whilst watching the rain fall heavily onto the grateful green plants below.
Tomorrow is the 1st of May, and marks the festival of Beltane in the Northern Hemisphere. This festival is rooted in several cultures and is one of the 8 seasonal festivals of the year, also known as the ‘Wheel of the Year.’ Beltane falls mid-way between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice, and in ancient times was celebrated due to its agricultural significance. At Beltane we can observe the earth at its fertile peak. The light continues to expand, growth is abundant and life is blooming and buzzing with life force.
This time of year is often thought to be fruitful for setting intentions and energising outward goals and dreams. However this year, my soul was calling for something different, and I decided to answer its call. And so I ran myself a day time bath, anointed myself with a homemade face mask and then enjoyed a hot chocolate in bed whilst I read my book and listening to the rain. It feels like a fitting tribute for such a day.
What is your soul calling for today?
