Blessed Beltane, Beloveds!


Beltane Altar

I was blessed by the Goddess to be initiated into the Beltane Mysteries at the age of 7 when I was selected by my elementary school to represent it as the May Queen in the May Day Parade (1970). No wonder I knew myself to be the Queen of the Fairies at that age!

Queen of the Fairies

Sunset to Sunset.
Beltane honors Life. It represents the peak of Spring and the beginning of Summer. Earth energies are at their strongest and most active. All of life is bursting with potent fertility and at this point in the Wheel of the Year, the potential becomes conception. On May Eve the sexuality of life and the earth is at its peak. Abundant fertility, on all levels, is the central theme. The Maiden goddess has reached her fullness. She is the manifestation of growth and renewal, Flora, the Goddess of Spring, the May Queen, the May Bride. The Young Oak King, as Jack-In-The-Green, as the Green Man, falls in love with her and wins her hand. The union is consummated and the May Queen becomes pregnant. Together the May Queen and the May King are symbols of the Sacred Marriage (or Heiros Gamos), the union of Earth and Sky, and this union has merrily been re-enacted by humans throughout the centuries. For this is the night of the Greenwood Marriage. It is about sexuality and sensuality, passion, vitality and joy. And about conception. A brilliant moment in the Wheel of the Year to bring ideas, hopes and dreams into action. And have some fun…..

This May Day is not only a day of ceremony and celebration, it is also a day of Cosmic/Divine POWER!  Saturn, our Cosmic Gatekeeper ~ who is conjoined our Galactic Heart, is at an exact square to Chiron, our Cosmic Shamanic Healer.  Most profoundly, Chiron is located in Grandfather Sky right between the orbits of Saturn and Uranus, our Cosmic Liberator! This is the SECOND GALACTIC ACTIVATION of our Cosmic Shamanic Healer since December 2016.

What does this mean for Humanity and Its Collective Consciousness?

We are being Initiated into Sofia~Christ Consciousness!!!  Our Awareness is being reawakened to our Truth … we ARE Divine Beings!  Each Being within The Temple of Humanity is receiving extremely refined frequencies ~ a Galactic Electrical Shock to their HEART ~ and incorporating them to restore their Heart’s alignment with Source.  With this realignment, each Being will wake up to their Truth and KNOW what has heart ~ spiritual meaning ~ and purpose for them. We are truly experiencing the process of Sacred Marriage within ourselves and within the Collective Consciousness at each Galactic Activation of our Cosmic Shamanic Healer. We are receiving Compassion from the Sofia~Christ Consciousness directly through our Galactic Heart and straight into our own Hearts.  We are embodying deeper and more expanded levels of Compassion for our human nature.  We are being transformed into Bodhisattvas!!  Through the Grace of the Divine, Humanity’s one Core Fracture Point is being HEALED.  No longer will we feel the piercing of our Hearts.  No longer will our Awareness be separated from UNITY CONSCIOUSNESS. No longer will we be ignorant of our true Divine Nature.

For me personally, my natal Hecate and my natal Vesta are being activated through a Mutable Grand Cross with Saturn/Galactic Center and Chiron. My previous post on the April 2017 Cardinal Grand Cross discusses Vesta. Here, I will share a bit about the Triple (maiden, mother, crone) Moon Goddess Hecate.

Hecate, like Vesta, is a Virgin Goddess and Her realms are the earth, sea and sky ~ another reason She is referred to as a “triple” Goddess.  As a Triple Goddess, Hecate has the ability to see in all directions, including the past, present and future, at one time.  Her Gift of Sight enables us to connect with Her as an Oracle whenever we reach a “crossroads” in our lives.

Hecate reminds us of the importance of change, helping us to release the past, especially those things that are hindering our growth, and to accept change and transitions. She sometimes asks us to let go of what is familiar, safe, and secure and to travel to the scary places of the soul. New beginnings, whether spiritual or mundane, aren’t always easy. But Hecate is there to support and show [us] the way.  She loans Her farsightedness for [us] to see what lies deeply forgotten or even hidden, and helps [us] make a choice and find [our] path. Oft times She shines Her torch to guide [us] while [we] are in dreams or meditation. Hecate teaches us to be just and to be tolerant of those who are different or less fortunate … Whether the Greek Goddess Hecate visits us in waking hours or only while we sleep, She can lead us to see things differently (ourselves included) and help us find greater understanding of our selves and others.  Although her name may mean “The Distant One”, Hecate is always close at hand in times of need, helping us to release the old, familiar ways and find our way through new beginnings. ~ Goddess Gift

In my personal Mutable Grand Cross ~ which emphasizes the ability to see all sides (Hecate!), the axes that are being powerfully activated are the:

  • Gemini/Sagittarius Axis ~ Relationship Path of the Quest Mate.  (The Quest Mate is the person who supports your Spiritual Quest as your search for the Truth.)
    • Gemini (Hecate)~ The Eternal Maiden (feminine) and The Christ Child (masculine)
    • Sagittarius (Saturn/Galactic Center)~ The Vision Quest Sage (feminine) and The Heroic Voyager (masculine)
  • Virgo/Pisces Axis ~ Relationship Path of the Helpmate.  (The Helpmate is the person who is as equally dedicated to their Sacred Work as you are to yours.)
    • Virgo (Vesta) ~ The Inner High Priestess (feminine) and The Inner High Priest (masculine)
    • Pisces (Chiron) ~ The Heart Healer (feminine) and The Selfless Server (masculine)

Thus,  the Goddess Hecate IS my Quest Mate and my personal connection to the Divine Creative Muse.  The Goddess Vesta IS my Helpmate. Together, they are supporting me in the Shamanic Healing of the Core Fracture, helping me to be compassionate towards myself, nurturing the Immaculate Conception of Renewal that has occurred within me, and communicating to me a whole new understanding of myself as a divinely CREATIVE being.
