The Cosmic Story: Beltane and the Libra/Aries Blue Full Moon


This is going to serve as my Beltane newsletter as well as a short summary of the energies at play this upcoming second Libra Full Moon. Beltane, the fourth gateway of the Wheel of the Year and the beginning of summer for the Celts, is the time when the veils between the worlds grow thin and the Faeries come out to dance under the moonlight, bringing their magic and mystery back to our mundane world.

After we danced the Maypole!

Beltane is the climax of the Spring Equinox energy. Although we celebrate Beltane nominally on May 1 st , it really occurs when the Sun is at 15* Taurus, the power gate degree of the fixed signs, which this year is on May 5 th . So happy Beltane and Cinco de Mayo .

Since my birthday is during Beltane, I can admit that this is my favorite Wheel of the Year gateway celebration. It's near Earth Day, when we have a collective opportunity to honor Mother Earth for the blessings, the beauty and the blossoms of May. And don't forget the Faeries! They're the spirits of the Earth, who come forth from the hidden realms to bless us each year with growth and sustenance.


To really get in touch with this hidden realm of spirit, we need to use our creative imagination. Since the Enlightenment, patriarchy has tricked us into believing that imagination needs to be left in childhood. When we all found out it just isn't possible to live fully without using our imaginations, we let our mass media colonize our collective imaginations through advertisements, movies, sports, video games and TV.


Lucky for us, both Venus and Mercury have just connected with Neptune in Pisces in the past few weeks. (Mercury on April 2, Venus on April 10.) While Neptune can open us to deception and illusion if we are ungrounded, it really is the archetype of the Creative Imagination. And with both Venus and Mercury connecting us to our hearts and our minds, we can begin to work with this imagination, especially as both planets move into the more dynamic sign of Aries (Mercury on April 17, Venus on April 20)

We need to have a revolution of the imagination , where we take back our unique imaginative capacity and use it to interact with Mother Nature and with our souls. I'm not saying that the right stories aren't important for us they shape the energies of life. But when we are confined to only the stories of our mass media, which are often violent , we lose out on an important facet of life.


The fact is that we can use our imaginations to connect to and communicate with the other species in our own world a s well as spirits from other dimensions . To imagine our souls into our lives, we need to interact with the archetypal energies that shape life. We do not have to live on Pandora to live in a magical, mystical world. We have that world right here. Right now. Within us. And around us.
